Introduction
Since time out of mind,
we’ve loved spicing up
our sex lives with a little
variety. Have you ever
wanted to dazzle a new
lover with your wicked
invention? Or to refresh
the long-cherished
intimacy you hold with
the familiar love of
your life? Or to try
something totally new
just for the fun of it? As
it turns out, so did our
ancestors.

introduction
Here, you’ll find a position for every day of the
year, inspired not only by the most famous love text
in history but by other classic authors. Who hasn’t
heard of the Kama Sutra? Written sometime
between the second and fifth centuries by the great
yogi Mallanaga Vatsyayana, its aim was not just to
share naughty secrets but also to reflect on the
whole nature of pleasure, love, and how to live a
fulfilling life. A grand work indeed, but not the only
word on the subject: In these pages, you’ll also find
tips from other classics—the Smaradipika, the
Ananga Ranga, the Panchasayaka, the
Ratikallonlini—books written by poets, scholars
and philosophers to enlighten lovers across the
ages. If all that sounds scholarly, don’t worry:
Yourself and your partner are all you need to bring
to the table... or bed, floor, staircase,
or anywhere else you choose.

introduction
People are sexy creatures, whenever or wherever
they’re born, and we love to experiment. We all
know that diferent positions are one way to shake
things up: Sex is a physical conversation and the
stance you strike at the beginning can do a lot for
your tone. But there’s more to it than just diferent
twists and angles. Human beings are creative, and
we like to work together making new and beautiful
things. As the ancient writers taught us, sex can be
part of that: To try new ideas in bed is to sculpt
with sensation, to paint with love. Artists of former
times knew that sex could be an art.

introduction
There are many ways you can read this book. You
can leaf through, looking for a new favorite and
trying whatever catches your eye. You can take on
the huge and hilarious challenge of attempting one
position every day—and whether you succeed or
not, there’s no question you and your partner will
be happier, funnier, and closer for giving it a shot.
If you’re after something specific, you can also flip
to the end, where you’ll find a Random Selector
pointing you toward our particular
recommendations for whatever mood you’re in.
Some of these positions are sensual, sleepy, or
spiritual caresses. Some of them are limb-bending,
brow-raising feats to make you feel tingly all over.
All of them are a door to a creative playground
where you and your lover can run wild.
