Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0684839814, Hardcover)

The Illustrated Koka Shastra explores all matters sexual, from setting the mood to explicit instruction on technique. In this edition, Comfort's translation is supplemented with explanatory notes and commentary. Explicit images drawn from a collection of ancient Indian paintings and sculptures - many never before published - complement and augment the classic text. This collection of instruction for intimate relations includes the complete text of the Koka Shastra and Ratimanjari, along with other significant medieval Indian writings on love such as the Ananga Ranga (the Stage of Love-God) and the Panchasaiyaka (the Five Arrows). This celebration of sex and sexuality is an invitation to explore a state of mind that accepts physical intimacy as a positive good and its elaboration as a natural part of life.
