Kama Sutra: The Perfect Bedside Companion by Black Dog & Leventhal Publishe - review by her.royal.redness

Kama Sutra: The Perfect Bedside Companion review

Overall it was a gem to add to my book collection. It's one I've read over and over, and my partner loves it when I bring it out. Often when he's out of town on business he gets me to email him passages. It was beautiful, sexual and spiritual all at once, something that is sometimes hard to find.
Ties together spirituality and sexuality and makes you strive to achieve both every time.
Not a step by step guide, not many descriptive pictures and can be a tough read.

First impressions are everything. When you look at this book, it brings to mind sensuality, and seduction. Wrapped in a pink satin, with silk screened images of flowers and with a wooden bead closure, it truly is a beautiful book, and that's merely looking at it. "Kama Sutra: The Perfect Bedside Companion"|Kama Sutra: The Perfect Bedside Companion is a delightful little travel book. My partner and I took it with us last summer to the lake, and sat on the beach reading excerpts to one another, and the anticipation had us both eager to call it a day and retire to the cabin. We looked forward to trying the different chapters (On biting, on kissing, on scratching, on embracing... ect). Once we read the chapters it was our goal to try and master all the techniques from each section before moving on. It became a game that was more than pleasurable for both of us.

However it wasn't only fun and games. It was inspirational, and educational at the same time. It allowed to you learn more about the intimate details of foreplay and intercourse, while still understanding how through each aspect you were reaching a more spiritual level. It spoke a lot on the spirituality of sexuality, and how knowing your lover, and being a good lover is one of the keys to become successful at everything you choose to do. It challenges both partners to be attentive to their lover, to learn about the things their partner finds pleasurable, and how to maximize these reactions.

The only thing I was slightly disappointed by was the lack of pictures. The artwork is beautiful, and erotic, but not overly descriptive, although the language more than makes up for the lack of pictures. If your willing to read it you'll learn volumes, if your more a picture book person, I wouldn't suggest this particular version.
Follow-up commentary
I highly recommend revisiting this beautiful book from time to time. The classical perspective makes this piece of literature seductive and sensual. I find as I age, and as I gain experience in the world of sexuality I appreciate this book more and more. It offers practical and reasonable advice in terms of seduction and creating a highly satisfying experience, both sexually and in a sense spiritually. I will certainly be reading this book over again, and again in the future.

    This really looks like a lovely book, and seems priced quite well for what you get.  I know you were disappointed by the lack of pictures, but it's refreshing to see a book with "Kama Sutra" in the title that actually discusses sexual pleasures and techniques instead of being just another sex position manual.
  • Champagne and Benzedrine (Roland Hulme)
    I read the Anne Hooper 'Pocket Kama Sutra' and that seemed to be the opposite - lots of lovely pictures, but not much depth about Kama Sutra or the spiritual side of things. I might give this a look!
  • Miss Jane
    Hrm. I'll have to look into getting this - my boyfriend is more the type that needs to be woo'd, and this seems like the perfect thing if it's more erotic/lovey text than the "put legs here and insert penis" type manuals.;p
  • her.royal.redness
    Dame Demi- I agree, having the language alone has certainly served its purpose. As I get older and hopefully wiser I've come to appreciate this book more and more!
  • her.royal.redness
    Red Roulette- The language certainly challenges you to use your imagination and really... get in touch with yourself? That sounds cheesy, but it does in a way challenge you to get beyond the copy cat pictures and find something that works for you and your partner.
  • her.royal.redness
    Miss Jane- It certainly is more erotic/lovely text and less "insert here". I've actually found that I truly enjoy reading this aloud to my partner, as a sort of teasing foreplay. It certainly gets the imagination going...
