This Japanese silk bound 176-page edition includes 21 graphic hand-painted illustrations of the original Kama Sutra love-making positions complete with step-by-step directions. With erotic names like Turning, Churning and Splitting the Bamboo each position, like all new skills, demands dedication, concentration, and practice to perfect. Some like "Suspended Congress" require that the woman have limber and acrobatic talent. The Kama Sutra: The Ancient Art of Making Love for the New Millennium is designed to help you become the lover you long to be.

"All the places that can be kissed are also the places that can be bitten." Each of the 34 chapters begins with a quote from Burton's translation. These excerpts serve as a window on Vatsyayana who is still perceptive, innovative, and often humorous over 15 centuries later. Here you will learn how to build an environment made for love. He describes the ideal location for a home as well as room design, furniture arrangement and placement of books and trinkets to please a loved one--even the correct number of pillows to create an enticing bed! Ancient secrets are revealed for keeping your body desirable with lotions, perfumes and potions. And which foods and herbs, like red onions and fennel, will conquer a heart and sustain desire. In our modern age when crass pornography is commonplace, The Kama Sutra: The Ancient Art of Making Love for the New Millennium reminds us that love-making is part hormonal rush, part longing, and part acquired skill—a skill you can easily learn.
