"Gives us the dazzling artwork from museums and private collections worldwide... 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*
