Sex in literature transports us from the silly to the sublime, providing erotic entertainment and ideas that stir our soul. Not purely focused on erotica, this group will read fiction, and maybe some nonfiction, which includes some noteworthy treatment of sex. Is pleasure itself a tool for spiritual learning? What's hot and what's not? What does Haruki Murakami's "metaphysical mind-bending" writing tell us about the nature of reality and the transformative role of sex? Let's dig into some great books together and talk about it!
