Just put on your headphones
5th August 2010: Plug on to hear India’s ancient sex guide dating back 1,600 years.
Too conscious of being seen holding on to Kama Sutra? Forget the written word. Keep down the great Indian sex manual, and just put on your headphones.
For the sex guide is now available in audio book form for the first time in its long history. No wonder, the British-based publisher is describing it as a "perfect meeting of ancient history and modernity".
Managing director of Beautiful Books Simon Petherick says now there is no need for you to feel embarrassed by reading in public the wonderful and important book. You can simply download it on to your mp3 player and liven up your commute to work.
You can even use the audio book as a step-by-step manual for improving bedroom techniques, without the need to stop and start with constant reference to a book.
The Kama Sutra, narrated by a British actress, is based on ancient Indian philosophies and was first translated into English in the 19th century. It contains advice on relationships. One of the chapters describes 64 types of sexual acts.
