Synopsis

Sex matters to us all. The Osho approach to sex begins with an understanding of how important love is in our lives, while at the same time acknowledges that the journey into love cannot exclude our innate biological energies. With this perspective, it becomes clear that the tendency for religions, and for society in general, to associate sex with sin and morality has been a great misfortune.

Sex Matters begins by deconstructing the layers of sexual repression that the condemnation of sex has inflicted on human. Throughout Sex Matters - in response to questions about everything from jealousy to premature ejaculation, the role of intimacy and the differences between men and women - Osho proposes a vision that embraces sex as a fundamental gift from nature. We learn how orgasm offers a glimpse of timelessness, thoughtlessness, and pure awareness -- biology's way of pointing toward the consciousness that helps us to understand ourselves.

Finally, we are presented with a clear choice: a repressed sexuality that leads to pornography, perversion, and a stunted humanity or a playful, respectful, and relaxed innocence that supports us in becoming fulfilled and whole, as nature intended.

  • It's about how sex doesn't really matter.
    From Amazon

    I found the writing style annoying: too many parables and not enough straight talk. Osho seems to be saying that you need to transcend the world, so sex doesn't really matter after all. But I didn't read much of this book; maybe you'll like it. What do I know.

  • provacative and convicting
    From Amazon

    In the style of many spiritual teachers, Osho grabs his reader's attention with his counter-intuitive declarations. For this reason it is absolutely necessary to continue reading through his entire thought development in order not to conclude the exact opposite of his meaning. This is a work worth one's time and effort.

  • Pathbreaking work
    From Amazon

    To me, it was enlightening. OSHO is one of the greatest mystic and deals with everything with excellent logic and scientific attitude. No prejudice and old beliefs. It starts from scratch discussing about sex-energy and how to use and transform into a greater reality....love and meditation.
    A treat to the reader. Specially, I think every traditional people and old religion like hinudism, jainism, mohammedanism, christianity should read it atleast once.

  • Truly important book
    From Amazon

    Sex is the strongest energy we can produce as humans "out of the box". We can learn techniques over time to recreate that wonderful state of superconsciousness, through magick, through meditation,... but sex will always be at the core. We are born out of it, it is our primary experience of the dualism of I and other.
    Understanding the dynamics surrounding it, and the oppression of individual freedom through the association of guilt and shame with sex, which our society has upheld for thousands of years in order to ensure the slow and steady flow of evolution, understanding and overcoming these dynamics appears to be a root responsibility of every individual on the path to superhconsciousness.

  • Enlightening
    From Amazon

    I am only about a third through the book so far but it is very enlightening, thorough, and you simply know that the words spoke by Osho are truth.
