Let us start with Creation. According to Hindu, creation is more than a one being’s job. In order to create the world there needs to be three beings 1. To Create 2. To Preserve 3. To Destroy.
Rama created Men & Women differently. Shiva & his wife created a manual to teach the Arts of Seduction. Sexual Energy is the most powerful energy of the world
In the Karmasutra, it says Men & Women need to learn 64 skills for the Art of Seduction. Skills of the Art of Seduction was not just meant for women, it is also meant for Men. What does a man have to be? He has to be rich. Translate this to a Gay Life Style, one would follow the same rules, both in the relationship would need to learn these skills in order to manifest ones Sexual Energy. As I wrote earlier, Sexual Energy is the most Powerful Energy of the World.
Divide the 64 skills of your life into 4 stages. Each stage gets divided in 4 stages and those stages get divided in 4 stage. That gives us 16 branches which gives us 64, which stands for the totality of your life. These skills are meant to build up energy & power in order to actualize ones sexuality.
Cleopatra when she seduced Caesar, she used the method of always being happy when she spent time with her. She wanted to think & feel when he was away from her, he would remember the happiness he felt when with her. She wanted him all to herself.
Seema Anand’s favorite part of the Art of Seduction is perfuming your body. I love this idea myself. Nothing is more seductive then taking in the scent of perfume that one loves. It awakens ones senses in a wonderfully subtle way.
Hope you enjoy Seema Anand’s storytelling of The Art of Seduction, even though she feels the use of the word “Seduction” doesn’t quite feel right for describing the Art of expressing one’s Sexuality.

The ancient arts of Courtesanery and Seduction were once treated as high philosophy, with divine and academic associations. Dr. Seema Anand explores how these narratives have been lost and in the evolution of their vocabulary, the implications have changed.
Working with the range of what ‘story’ can mean to an individual Seema facilitates the learning processes of ‘telling’, ‘listening’, ‘acknowledging’ and ‘rejecting’ the narratives that make up our lives and our social interactions to enhance communication, build links and open dialogue.
