I would imagine that if the Author of the original Kama Sutra were still alive you would see a lawsuit in the making.

Format: Paperback
Perhaps the book is 4-stars, not 5. My review is designed to dilute the previous one-star condemnation. I'm totally baffled as to what is "pornish" and "juvenile" about this book. (Read my comments on her review.)

To be honest, I'm an interested novice on the subject of Kama Sutra, and probably don't know a 4-star from a 5-star read. I hoped to upload photos from the book for you to make your own decisions, but they are "nude" and forbidden to upload.

The photos are beautifully erotic, full color, lots of light and shadow, upscale, minimally explicit: yes, breasts; yes, some pubic hair; yes -- couples enjoying intercourse. The book is about sex, after all.

Unlike some sex books with illustrations, the photos are clear in "what to do" with one's body, to achieve the pose. Each pose is rated with a degree of difficulty, and type: example "soft, gentle" vs. "deep, intense, hot".

Being a good lover is highly important to me, and I can learn a lot from this book. Is it the best one out there? I have no idea, but I'm delighted that I bought it. LA Enke

A great way to keep the fun going in a 25 year old romance, we just Pick a position a week, and run with it.

Format: Paperback
The Kama Sutra, everyone knows the name - a nearly 2,000 year old Sanskrit text on sexuality and relationships between the sexes. Now, authors Kirk (a journalist and illustrator) and Kamini Thomas (a social psychologist) have taken their knowledge on Eastern Spirituality and used it to bring the Kama Sutra up to date for the modern Westerner.

Now, this book is not merely a book of illustrated sexual positions, though that is a large part of the book. The book covers seduction, setting the mood, trust, romance, and so much more. Read this book and you will learn about your own and your partner's bodies, and how to add true adroitness to your lovemaking. This is the book for those who want to not just make love, but make it expertly.

This book is really great - it is classy, but sexy. The pictures are explicit, but are also as modest as they can be considering the subject matter. Some real text from the Kama Sutra is included, which is nice. The book covers not just positions but also many other matters involved in romance. Great buy.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has ample pictures and a good overview of basic positions, as well as chapters instructive on other Kama Sutra basics (such as maintaining eye contact and linking your breathing better). Great starter book for those new to the subject and looking for more than just a lesson on intercourse...

I absolutely love this book. 1) It is informative and very easy to understand. 2) It is very descriptive and the pictures that accompany the descriptions really do help. 3) While some may deem it pornographic, obviously you would not give it to a child, it is something about sex that helps in this modern world. I can say this though I cannot wait to really try this and implement it with my partner.
