Thank you Princess

Thank you princess…

Your comment was refreshing on one of my recent posts

I have stated very similar things over the past few months and just not recently. Several people have bashed my most recent opinions because they have not read much of my blog in general and therefore do not know anything about the previous statements I have made.

You really backed up everything that a lot of my previous posts claimed though. I have addressed the religious aspects of tantra numerous times. I have addressed the fact that Kama sutra is mostly just a sexual position manual today and is not an accurate translation. I also addressed that the Kama sutra was written for men because women where not allowed to study it and that there was a different version written for women.

Most American translations are removing any or all of the religious information from the sex manuals. What they do not realize is that this should be considered plagiarism because it is copying a text poorly and incorrectly. I think they need to stop translating it altogether because the last 50 years of incorrect translations proves that Americans are not capable enough to translate the texts. If a translation is going to be done, it needs to be done word for word by someone who has multiple degrees of cultural history and sexual education.

Lance Dane has one of the most recent accurate translations that I have seen. He also owns one of the world’s largest private collections of erotic literature and paintings though.

To many people think they are know-it-alls and believe they can do anything they put their minds to. There are not many people in the world that can understand the original texts and even fewer who can understand them without needing to go to college and get a degree in it first.

I've read translations that are quite good and include all the stuff most "illustrated Kama Sutra" editions leave out, includig the arts a woman should know such as teaching a cockatoo to speak (and other courtly delights the modern world seems to have no use for) before venturing into the arts of embracing, kissing, scrathes, light slaps and finally intercourse per se.

True demonic...

Most American translations do not discuss what you first mentioned though. They solely focus on the sexual acts and positions involved. The Kama Sutra is referred to as "the Holy Bible of Sex" because it went into details about sex and relationships and a daily way of life for Hindu men. It talked about shaving body hair and eating certain leaves to freshen their breath and such. It talked about ways to treat women both in and "out" of the bedroom.

American translations are a total insult to the truly wonderful original version. Personally, all American editions should be required to be sent to one location and then destroyed because they are the just as disgusting as what happened during all the events of world war 2.

Hmmm... the Kama Sutra i have... i don't remember any pictures? but 75% of it (more than 50% at any rate) talks about 'other stuff'... i remember there being stuff a woman should know to be a good wife, such as singing. the remainder was about sex. though i also later bought an illustrated version, which naturally only deals with the sex aspect. but illustrations do have their uses!!
