Rufus C. Camphausen

The Encyclopedia of Sacred Sexuality

From Aphrodisiacs and Ecstasy to Yoni Worship and Zap-Lam Yoga

Inner Traditions, 1999.
Paperback, 288 pages, illustrated in color and B/W

An elegant, unsentimental, and extraordinary book. From photographs of African fertility dances to full tantrik instructions, from French phallic ancient stone monuments to a discussion of pheromones, this is the best of its kind I've seen. Highly recommended.

The Spanish Translation

A treasure house of esoteric lore and delightful tidbits of erotica . . . well illustrated and intricately cross-referenced, it is a useful companion for the researcher, aficionado, dabbler, or just plain interested [beginner].
The Journal of Divine Ecstasy


This fully updated and expanded edition of The Encyclopedia of Erotic Wisdom contains more than 1,200 entries - 150 of which are either new additions or were extensively revised for this edition - and a vast array of new illustrations, many in full color, from the author's recent travels to the Far East.

The encyclopedia explains how to integrate body and mind, love and sexuality, and spiritual exercise and inner alchemical techniques in the practice of sacred sexuality. It also contains the most recent scientific knowledge of the brain, mind, and body as it relates to the erotic and sexual. Extensive cross references, quotations from sacred erotic scriptures, Internet resources, and 28 indexes to related topics within the book take the reader on an odyssey from almost any point of departure to the farthest reaches of this fascinating subject.
