Tao of Seduction: Erotic Secrets from Ancient China Synopsis

The Tao of Seduction is a collection of ancient Taoist sexual alchemy.

Lin Liao Yi, a specialist in Chinese literature and philosophy, has translated this treatise on ancient Chinese love and commented on the principal points of an ancient lifestyle that continues to have relevance for readers today.
