There’s an interesting review in the New York Times of what sounds like a rather awesome new translation of the Kama Sutra. However, it’s important to remember that not all of the teachings in the Kama Sutra are good ones:

The Kama Sutra provides a recipe to make a man invisible so he can sneak into a harem. There is wince-inducing advice, involving insect bristles and a string hammock, for enlarging the penis. If you would like a woman to be faithful, we are told, sprinkle her with “a mixture of powered milkweed thorns, hogweed,” monkey feces and “root of glory lily.”

What earthly good, I ask you, is a faithful woman who reeks of monkey feces?
