Review:

"Gives us the dazzling artwork from museums and private collections worldwide... fascinating...sex has not changed in over 2,000 years.", Lois Mark Stalvey, Red Rock News, January 28, 2004

"A new, gorgeously illustrated edition of the famous Hindu Classic.", Erotic Review, Dec/Jan 2004, Issue 58

"It is not, in fact, a pornographic work, but a book depicting the art of living for the civilized and refined citizen, finding its expression in the sphere of love, eroticism, and the sensual pleasures of life. . . . Rather than calling the Kama Sutra pornography and hiding it on the highest shelf of their bookcases, Western readers should see it as the expression of a refined, sophisticated people on the art of love.", Audrey Chaix, Vulpes Libris, Jan 2010
