I am Barbara Carrellas and I love what I do! I adore giving you permission to explore the vast sexual and spiritual possibilities open to you. I offer you numerous ways to discover and delight in these possibilities: workshops, lectures, keynotes, Sex/Life coaching and special events for individuals, conferences, businesses, and schools. I encourage you to join me for life-changing adventures in the infinite realms of sex and spirit.

I founded Urban Tantra® as a way of bringing you together with like-minded people to explore the vast range of sexual, spiritual and emotional possibilities open to all of us. Most of us have been taught to compartmentalize our lives—to keep our work, spiritual and erotic lives as separate as possible—in order to keep the peace and not offend anyone. I advocate exactly the opposite approach. When your erotic energy is aligned with your spiritual purpose, it releases your creativity and manifests in prosperity and happiness in all areas of your life, including fulfilling relationships with other people.

If you’re new to me and my work, you might want to begin by reading one of my books.  Urban Tantra: Sacred Sex for the Twenty-First Century combines the principles of ancient Tantra with contemporary sex positivism to guide you through more than 100 techniques and positions for expanded orgasmic states, erotic massage, and more. It can be used anywhere and by everyone—inexperienced, young, old, queer, edgy, pierced, differently-abled, tattooed—you name it.  Ecstasy is Necessary: A Practical Guide to Sex, Relationships and Oh So Much More is a guide to living a truly ecstatic life. It will help you approach sex and relationships with confidence and in a way that works for you, no matter where you are on your personal erotic path. Luxurious Loving: Tantric Inspirations for Passion and Pleasure is a beautiful photo-illustrated introduction to Tantric sex, designed especially for couples short on time and longing for more sensuality, passion and excitement in their lovemaking.
