Format: Hardcover
The Gay Man's Kama Sutra is a friendly and approachable book that will appeal to many, but I would suggest that it is suitable more for a beginner or someone who is curious about their options rather than the more experienced reader - I doubt they would discover much that is new to them.

The words "Kama Sutra" are often mistaken as indicating a salacious A to Z sex manual, and this book isn't one either. Rather, it's a general guide to the basic things a gay, bisexual or just plain curious man needs to know, from a vaguely eastern philosophical viewpoint! What Terry Sanderson has done exceptionally well is create a book that presents lovemaking between men in a visually pleasing and easy to access format. The book is well laid out and subjects are covered in just enough detail to give the information needed. For more in-depth information on specific topics you would need to consult other books such as the seminal Anal Pleasure and Health by Dr Jack Morin for instance.

The text is illustrated throughout, with several interesting copies of erotic art from antiquity (annoyingly without any credits so I can't find a print of the ones I like!) Oral sex techniques and intercourse positions are illustrated with the standard type of sex manual drawings rather than photographs but on the plus side they are done quite well, and the generously-endowed results are quite pleasing on the eye!

I do like the philosophy behind the message of this book - it encourages a very positive message of integrating sexual expression into the whole person, and of celebrating sexuality in a positive, open way, in line with the teachings of Tantra and other ancient philosophies.

Well-illustrated, but then I do prefer line drawings to photographs...they have texture and seem sexier. It is not a how-to like Mitch Walker's wonderful liitle volume, nor encyclopaedic like Jack Hart's or The Joy Of......but it is lightweight and tries to be another Colin Spencer Kama Sutra though I think the latter has sexier illustrations......at full-price this book is over-priced.....if picked up around ten pounds or below it is a useful book for display though not as lavish as Tatchell's Safer Sexy.........it would not be my first choice however, Mitch Walker's Men Loving Men would have pride of place

I'm fairly new to the art of making love to men, and bought this book to try and "gem up" on one or two things.
In short, this book is absolutely fantastic! My partner and I have been brought even closer through the many positions and techniques. My only criticism is perhaps that some of the positions are not achievable unless you are endowed at least to the national average, otherwise great fun can be had.

I must say that I expected a lot more than a guide to safe sex and avoiding contracting HIV. Not that it is not important but thinking "Kama Sutra" you expect ancient and illustrious ways of having sex. This is more a guide to avoid illness than having great sex. Kept me busy for approximately 5 minutes.

Not sure why we bought this...its a history book if anything with a few slightly dated looking pencil sketches. Hoped for some sort of fresh inspration...main message is about lifestyle being normal and healthy... If its inspiration you need then buy a dvd!

This was not the book I was expecting at all.

It reads more like a synopsis or review of the Kama Sutra, offering slected highlights and interpretation, without much useful information.

Lot's of what, without much how.

Disappointing.

This book is more of a gay man's Joy of Sex to the Kama Sutra.
But still a very interesting read with lots of usefull information.
