YAB-YUM

Not a God but a sexual embrace for Gods.

It is possible for humans to attempt it, but not for long. Still, there's no harm in trying.

Like the Chinese YIN and YANG or the Japanese IN and YO, YAB-YUM symbolizes the dual male-female aspects of the Universe.

By joining together in this sexual union, you and your partner can enjoy all the benefits of higher understanding and become one with the universe. Furthermore, it is suitable for all Buddhists, Hindus, New Age explorers and anyone who likes that sort of thing.

A full explanation of the YAB-YUM sexual position is sadly outside the scope of Godchecker, but you can probably read about it in the glossy magazines — with illustrations.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Yab-yum graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Yab-yum movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Yab-yum statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Yab-yum. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
