This image may seem shocking, it has a traditional meaning in Tantric Buddhism. The pose represents the mystical union of the active force, or method (Upaya, conceived of as masculine), with wisdom (Prajna , conceived of as feminine) in a fusion necessary to overcome the false duality of separation between people.
Buddha Shakti also popularly known as Samantabhadra Buddha depicts Yab-Yum. Yab Yum means "Father - Mother" in Tibetan, and this image of Samantabhadra embracing his consort is similar to the Chinese Yin Yang symbol. This is also known as the Buddha Shakti statue as well (the word "Shakti" means "Energy," as is usually identified as a female deity.)
