So the darling and sexy Christina over at Tabu Toys.com was kind enough to send me over a little hot reading the other day. And was it ever...inspiring...
Christina sent me the Kama Sutra Year Book and it was all kinds of fantastic. This little dry spell I'm in has just ended - because wow do I ever have some new positions I'd like to try out.
Now TabuToys.com has all kinds of sex toys to peruse as well, but this book was just the kind of thing I needed to kick my imagination into high gear.
The Kama Sutra Year Book shows you 52 different sensual and sexual positions - a different one to try for each day of the year.
Now before you start thinking that I'm pimping out the porn, this is a different kind of book. It's more instructional. There are photos and written instructions showing you step-by-step how to engage in each position. And some of them are quite athletic.
It's also divided into different sections: intimate, passionate, energetic and tranquil. Some of the positions are more sweet and sensual - focussing more on couple "bonding." Whereas others are more strictly focussed on actual sex.
A note: the sex in this book is essentially vaginal, with a little bit of manual sprinkled in - no oral or anal. But all the same, it definitely gave me some ideas that I had never considered before.
A note: I am now dying to try the tiger spring (page 42).
And did you know that the woman on top position is actually called "Archimedes' screw."??
I don't have a lot negative to say about this book. Upon first skimming I thought that they were doing a lot of repeating of the same position under different names - but when examined more carefully, you'll realize that the purpose of each position is different and that there are subtle nuances to each that aren't immediately discernible if you're quickly flipping pages.
(Moral: you have to read and not just look at the photos)
This is definitely an awesome book to pick up if you're looking for a bit of variety in the bedroom, for a very decent price.
