About this title

Synopsis:

Adapts the precepts of the original Kama Sutra to celebrate the spiritual and sexual expressions of male homosexual love

Review:

The Kama Sutra, a compendium of Indian erotic knowledge collected in the 1st century, has long been viewed as a book not only of sexual technique but also of the art of love and life. In The Gay Kama Sutra Colin Spencer has attempted to bring the life-affirming erotic world view of the original (along with some of its more complicated techniques) to his discussion of contemporary gay male life. While the book celebrates gay male sexual love, it also discusses AIDS, relationships, homophobia, transvestism, gender, and politics. Its unabashedly pro-gay stance and ability to convey sexual information in explicit but nonclinical terms makes The Gay Kama Sutra an informative and useful guide.
