My sister gave it to me as a shower gift. And we actually took this book on ur honeymoon with us and read it while lolling about the pool. There is so much more to this book than positions. It has so much information about communication and the problems that couples encounter. I loved the information on sex and learned alot about communication. I gave this book as a gift to friends who were getting married.

While these Idiot's guides give a lot of information and have intelligent authors; the format is annoying and gets in the way of a book that is about the sacredness of sex and marriage relationships. The authors know their stuff and it makes up for the cheesy format.

We did not know how to talk about sex and this book in addition to all it's great information on the Kama Sutra gave us insights and tools to talk . Worth every penny. A great book.

We received this book as a wedding shower gift. I had not heard of the Kama Sutra before and because my husband took it along on our honeymoon - we read it and tried out some of the positions. We also found the exercises and information on communication really helpful.

The Guides are usually well done. This one is very well done, well written and easy to read. You can open it up to a chapter without having to read straight through (all the Idiot's Guides are layed out this way) and so can read about history, positions or the additional chapters that I found really valuable about relationship

I'd heard of the Kama Sutra. Some exotic teachings on sex. Way beyond my cowboy v iew of sex. Well, now I know there is a whole lot more possible than I did before I read this book. Extraordinary lovemaking for just about anyone who wants it awaits. I also find that the Idiot's Guides are overall consistently well done. Well written, researched, presented. I also liked Anne Hooper's books on the Kama Sutra. This one is different in that it covers relationships and the issues that everyone faces in marriage.

and then this and found that I could put the Kama Sutra into use in my life with the help of this book. Great insights, wisdom and practical exercises that make the sometimes strange positions of the Kama Sutra doable.

My lover and I decided we wanted to learn about sacred sexuality and bought several books. This is our favorite. It has so much valuable information about the history and culture of India. And it brings the teachings of the east home to the west by including valuable health and reltionship chapters. There are excellent exercises and the positions are attainable and wonderfully erotic.

More than the Kama Sutra in this book. A thorough coverage of relationship issues and a good self help book with doable exercise.
