THE KAMA SUTRA IS NOT A SEX MANUAL

    
The Kama Sutra is considered the ultimate in sexual manuals.  It wasn’t. 

This Indian Hindu text was a guide to “virtuous and gracious living” -- to help Indian men achieve pleasure in all aspects of their life – their social status, their career, their family life, and alright, their sex life.  The original Kama Sutra included tips on being a good citizen, getting ahead at work, selecting a wife, conducting an adulterous affair, aphrodisiacal recipes, etc.

The Kama Sutra was written by Vatsyayana between the first and six century.  It contained 1250 verses, 36 chapters, seven parts, and 64 sexual positions that live in infamy.

Whatever the position -- the mare, the crab, the lotus, the splitting of a bamboo, the mounting of a horse, etc. -- the pictures are the best part.  I’m a visual person.  If I see it, I can try it.  And isn’t that the best part of learning, the practicing until you get it right?  Yum!

What’s your favorite position?  What’s your lover’s?
