From the Publisher

Man should study the Kama Sutra and the arts and sciences subordinate thereto, in addition to the study of the arts and sciences contained in Dharma and Artha. Even young maids should study this Kama Sutra along with its arts and sciences before marriage, and after it they should continue to do so with the consent of their husbands.

Here some learned men object, and say that females, not being allowed to study any science, should not study the Kama Sutra.

But Vatsyayana is of opinion that this objection does not hold good, for women already know the practice of Kama Sutra, and that practice is derived from the Kama Shastra, or the science of Kama itself.

Because Witt is beautiful and writing about sex in the internet age, she’s gotten media attention. But she’s bristled at calling her work a memoir. Although being single at 30 led her to her topic, Witt travels beyond her own psychic distress and into a journalistic tour of 21st century mating. The result serves as a new economics of sex or, equally, an economics of new sex. Witt, now 35, is at the tail e

Nobody Asked Tyrese For His Trash Advice On Women's Sex Lives, But Here We Are

There's nothing quite like a man, completely unprompted, doling out sexist drivel under the guise of helpful tips for "all the single ladies out there."  It's this genre of fire garbage advice that brought us singer, songwriter, Fast & Furious actor and all-around misogynistic jerk Tyrese's latest lecture on single women and self-respect. BET, unironically, shared a now-deleted video clip of Tyrese's cringeworthy monologue Monday on Twitter, prompting most people's eyes to roll right out of their heads.  Tyrese starts out by telling single women how much he appreciates them for "holding out" (

Seattle Mayor Drops Re-Election Bid, Says Sex Abuse Allegations Are Untrue

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray announced on Tuesday that he will not run for re-election because of allegations that he sexually abused minors, three decades ago. Murray is a skilled, bare-knuckled politician and it was assumed he would cruise to re-election this year. But a few weeks ago, he was sued by Delvonn Heckard, 46, who says back in the 80s, Murray paid him for sex when Heckard was a minor. The suit echoed claims made by other men a decade ago, but Murray, 62, vehemently denied wrong-doing. He even got a doctor to rebut certain anatomical evidence offered by his accuser. But finally, on Tues
