Well got this book from Ann Summers ages ago. Should have looked at it more in the shop as I probably would not have brought it.
It has many pages on setting the scene, touching and embracing and kissing and foreplay. Although some of these tips are good, I just wanted to get to the good stuff-the sex positions! Would like a book with more positions and ways to get into them, like the red hot sex positions book.
- Small size, pictures and includes all the 'little things' that some couples forget about loving afterplay as they put it
- Does go on a bit about things like different ways how to kiss, and the pictures are not that raunchy, the same couple is used throughout.
- Bottom line
- Its okay - gives good tips but not as good as some of the other books I've got from Ann Summers.

Bedside Kama Sutra Guide
Reviewed: 22 Mar 2006 by OA Scrumptious
This is the first Kama Sutra book that i've ever owned. I choose this one mainly for the size - easy to have by the bedside. However when I looked inside the book i found this copy to be a little bit tame. The advice is great and the positions (that i've got round to trying) are fab but the images are a little bit disappointing. I've always imagined that a Kama Sutra Book should have lots of rude images that you can giggle over but this book is very tastefully done. There are nude photos of a couple throughout the book (over 100 as stated on the back blurb) but they have made sure that no rude bits show in any of the images - it's all left to the imagination. If you're after a small educational guide then this is ideal.
- Easy to understand format and advice also good size for the bedside cabinet and
- Images could be a little bit more raunchy to get you in the mood
- Bottom line
- Good size, good advice and easy to flick through - clean non pornographic images

Must learn my lesson

When I was quite young--actually before I started having sex--I read the Kama Sutra. It was a text-only version, very roughly translated, and I loved it. It was not an easy read, but that somehow made me feel that it was more worth it.
As I got older, I have been on a look out for an easier to read and refer to Kama Sutra, to use as a quick reference. I got this copy a few years back; after flipping through it quickly, I thought it would do.
I was wrong. The biggest problem with these "pocket" Kama Sutras is that they want to jam in all the positions that they can, so that you lose all of the discussion on why certain positions and moves are important, and what should be focused on. You instead get a daunting mash of positions that very few people can get into without training--and without further explanation, there is little motivation to try.
This book does just that. There is very little time spent here on explaining what is going on or any of the tenants of the Kama Sutra. Instead, you get position after position--most just a slight variation of the previous. It ends up being a very unemotional book that is worth the flip through and amusement of "oooh...look at this! do you think this would hurt?" with your partner.
But as a long term reference book...it doesn't have much use. Save your time and get the full version. It is well worth the investment.
- It is a small size and in color
- It does not focus on the important aspects of the Kama Sutra. The positions are difficult and they offer no helpful tips on getting into them.
- Bottom line
- Fun for the pictures, but not really worth it overall.
