Product Description

Synopsis

Acknowledging that there are many similarities between the Chinese, Indian, and Japanese approaches to love and erotica, this book examines the recurring topics that appear in the erotic literature and art of the East: the obligation to pleasure the woman, ways to fortify the male's virility, suggestions for variety and daring in sex, and emphasis on the power of love beyond lust. It offers a sophisticated examination of the traditional texts of the Chinese Golden Lotus, the Indian Kama Sutra, and the Japanese Shunga scrolls and extracts the lessons they teach about the sexuality of yin and yang, improving love making, genital size, positions, and problems such as premature ejaculation. This new study presents the essence of the original texts in a clear and sophisticated manner and exquisite full-colour illustrations.

INTERESTING, BUT........ 9 Dec. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This small, oblong work is interesting, but many of the color reproductions are also used in Bret Norton's other books - the color reproductions are just OK considering the inexpensive nature of the book. I think that there are better books on the subject matter - i would not have purchased this book had i seen it in person beforehand.
