Kama Sutra Cartoon - USA
This amazing postcard came all the way from Spam, Minnesota in the United States (yes, the birthplace of the infamous canned food!). It shows a comic cartoon of one of the hundreds of weird positions described in the Kama Sutra book - of course that even knowing that the great Vātsyāyana work is much more than a sex manual, and a great book by the way, it's impossible to listen to the name Kama Sutra without thinking in something really kinky! In this particular scene (called 'Herd of Cows') we can see a lucky fella having fun with five different girls (whoa... "ménage à six"? really?). Thank you very much Mimi, I laughed a lot with this card and the funny story you told me (let's hope my blog doesn't get censured because of this picture!). This postcard took 7 days to arrive!
The Kama Sutra is an ancient Indian Hindu text widely considered to be the standard work on human sexual behavior in Sanskrit literature written by Vātsyāyana. Contrary to popular perception, especially in the western world, Kama Sutra is not just an exclusive sex manual; it presents itself as a guide to a virtuous and gracious living that discusses the nature of love, family life and other aspects pertaining to pleasure oriented faculties of human life.
