Kama Sutra by Tracey Cox


Erotic 10-47 

Easy-to-master starter positions, a crash course in the basics of spiritual sex, an honest appraisal of what works today, the kiss that can make her climax, and getting sex back to how it used to be. 

Exotic 48-83 

Intimate sex positions for super-soppy sex, why a hug is never just a hug, reuniting those old friends sex and love, the exercise that guarantees you’ll both be better lovers in a week, and how a twist of a hip can transform tried-and-tired sex. 

Exhilarating 84-109 

Fresh new techniques for oral orgasms, a hand-job better than he can give himself, heavenly handwork for her, the hottest multiple-hot-spot orgasm she’ll ever experience, and why sacred sex sucks. 

Exhibitionist 110-149 

Show-off sex positions to boast about to your friends (with tips on how to cheat), the Kama Sutra’s decidedly suspect take on genital size, and what to do if you’re lopsided lovers, plus how to have a whole body orgasm and be a master of ejaculation. 

Expert 150-187 

Ambitious positions for the very, very brave, the nine thrusts to sexual nirvana, why the Kama Sutra encourages you to hurt the one you love, and the really, really naughty things the ancients got up to.

If there’s one resounding message from spiritual sex, it’s that couples need to put lots of effort into their sex lives. Sorry to shatter any illusions, but it’s true: people do split up when they’re bored. 


Like all things which keep us deliciously intrigued, no one can quite agree on the facts surrounding the Kama Sutra. We know it was compiled between the first and fourth century by an elderly Indian sage called Mallanaga Vatsyayana, but little is known of him. Some historians swear he was celibate; others say after studying ancient texts, he put the advice into practice and went for it! It’s also thought Vatsyayana didn’t actually write the Kama Sutra, even though he’s generally referred to as the author. Folklore says he studied writings of holy men before him and discovered that Nandi, the white bull, stood guard for the mighty gods Shiva and Parvati outside their bedroom while they made love for 10,000 years. (And you thought that 48-hour romp was something worth boasting about!). Nandi swore never to speak of the sex secrets he saw and heard but, just like a fallible human, broke his vow and blabbed. The words he spoke “fell as flowers” and the flowers were gathered, strung onto thread, then woven into a book of 1,000 chapters. As time passed, the book got shortened and eventually condensed to 150 chapters. Vatsyayana managed to compact it into seven parts (only one of which deals exclusively with sex, by the way). 

The Kama Sutra is basically a guide to life and love. It’s addressed to men, but Vatsyayana heartily recommends young women also flick through it before marriage (with their fiancé’s consent, of course!). At the time the Kama Sutra was written, there was no shame associated with sex—Hindus thought sex wasn’t just natural and necessary, but sacred. A veritable sexfest apparently! (Time machine, anyone?). In 1883, the Kama Sutra was translated by Sir Richard Burton and Forster Fitzgerald Arbuthnot. So risqué was it for the Western world, they had to create their own company to publish it. Even then, it was only available through subscription and mainly read by scholars or upper class “gents” with an appetite for erotica. Published for general release in the US and UK in 1962, it has remained the world’s most famous sex book, even if most people are under the misconception that it’s a “positions book” with lots of naughty drawings.
