Buddhism & Sexuality

With Pema Khandro & Esteemed Guests

Did the Buddha teach consent? What do celibacy and sacred sexuality have in common? What does Buddhism say about polyamory, polygamy, and monogamy? Where do queer sexualities fit in yab yum imagery? Whats the difference between neo-tantra and Buddhist tantra? Where does Buddhism draw the line on sexual abuse and violence?
