How’s Your Kama?


I am so pleased to have Jenna Jaxon as a Guest blogger.  She’s talking about one of my favorite subjects – SEX and giving us a sneak peek at her upcoming release from Decadent publishingAlmost Perfect.   Jenna – thanks for coming. Love this post!

Good morning, everyone!  I’d like to thank my great friend and even greater crit partner, Casea Major, for inviting me to Major Love–Major Romance today.

 With the release of my erotic contemporary Almost Perfect scheduled for November 25, I thought it would be fun to talk about sex–specifically about the Kama Sutra, which figures prominently in the  book.

I’m sure most romance readers have heard of the Kama Sutra, an ancient Indian text considered the ultimate guide to sexual and sensual pleasure.  Composed of seven books, the Kama Sutra’s second book is devoted to practical advice on sexual union–including chapters that discuss types of embraces, caresses, kisses, marking with fingernails, biting and marking with the teeth, slapping with the hand (and corresponding moaning), and an illustrated section on sexual positions that lead to superior orgasms.

Good To Know’s website on Sex and Relationships at http://www.goodtoknow.co.uk/relationships/259026/Kama-Sutra-positions

gives descriptions and photo illustrations of some of the most popular–and most challenging–positions recommended by the text.

In Almost Perfect, Roger has become a student of the Kama Sutra and challenges Pam to let him show her why he’s at the head of his class.

There are a total of 64 (!) positions described and illustrated in the Kama Sutra, along with advice on how to accomplish the total sensual experience between partners.  Some of the things it suggests are eye-opening to say the least!

The various Kama Sutra positions have pretty strange names:  Widely Opened, The Congress of the Crow, Splitting of the Bamboo, Milk and Water Embrace.  Some are very easy to accomplish while others look as though they’d have to be performed by Circ du Soliel!  All promise to be a fun time in the bedroom–or anywhere you feel the urge.

My favorite position is The Pair of Tongs–just to look at.  I could never do it because it seems to defy gravity!

So if you’re ever bored in your love life or need a little spice in the bedroom, check out the Kama Sutra and rediscover the fun side of sensual sexual pleasure.

Blurb Almost Perfect

Pamela Kimball’s birthday present, a 1Night Stand adventure, promises to jump-start her life, put a new man in her bed, and help her forget her past.  Unfortunately, movie-buff Pam’s Pirates of the Caribbean fantasy takes an alarming wrong turn when she’s abandoned on a not quite deserted island—with ex-husband Roger Ware.

Forced by hunger to accept Roger’s offer of dinner,  Pam realizes the geek she married has transformed into one of the most charming, sexiest men she’s ever met. His newfound confidence—and hot body—re-kindles old fires.  A simple kiss leads Roger to challenge her to discover how much his lovemaking skills have improved, leaving Pam torn between self-preservation and burning desire.

With time running out before they’re rescued, Pam must decide if her heart can survive the consequences of becoming Roger’s “almost” perfect one-night stand.

    • That’s awesome, Jenna! Wish I could participate. So many good books at Decadent it’s hard to choose!

    What a cool blog. Honestly , most of the Kama Sutra just makes me shake my head. I don’t know how they do some of those positions.
    Almost Perfect sounds wonderful, so you can put my name in for that. Good luck with everything!

    November 22, 2011 at 8:12 am

    • Thanks, JM. I looked at those positions a lot when researching for Almost Perfect. Some do seem to defy gravity! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.

  4. yeah, why do you think I go to yoga? uh huh…I love the kama sutra.
    great post ladies! thanks!

    November 22, 2011 at 8:14 am

    • In my current physical state it would take more than just yoga to get me into some of those positions. Yoga and a crane perhaps. LOL But you go, Liz! I’ll know who to talk to if I write a sequel. 🙂 Thanks for visiting!

  5. Think I have to go visit my chiropractor from just looking at that picture!

    November 22, 2011 at 9:06 am

    • LOL Daryl! But I agree. 🙂

      November 22, 2011 at 9:50 am

  6. Two of those positions look a bit tricky. LOL Looking forward to Almost Perfect! 🙂

    November 22, 2011 at 9:25 am

    • Thanks, Jessica! I remember seeing an illustration once of one of the positions with a woman on top of the man–shooting arrows as they were engaged in “sexual congress.” My first thought: “Some people are just show-offs!” LOL

  7. Ella

    Jenna, Great post and interesting positions. My husband’s vitsiting. I’ll have to go check it out.

    November 22, 2011 at 9:29 am

    • Sounds like you’ll have something to be thankful for this holiday season, Ella! LOL Good luck! 🙂

      November 22, 2011 at 10:00 am

  8. Great post! Lol, I don’t think I’m acrobatic enough for a lot of those positions. I would probably pass out from lightheadedness!

    November 22, 2011 at 9:34 am

    • Thanks, Eve. I’m with you on that. Just looking at The Pair of Tongs makes me dizzy! LOL Though some of them apear to be do-able, yet a little adventuresome. Perfect for the less than limber like me. Glad you stopped by. 🙂

      November 22, 2011 at 10:03 am

  9. Jenna, Here this chair is supposed to make the Kama Sutra easier. Some of these still look Cirque du Soleil to me. But the chair does look FUN. http://tantrachair.com/en/content/29/film-new/124/tantra-chair-film-5/

    November 22, 2011 at 10:12 am

    • Unfortunately I’m not able to access that site right now, but I’ll take a look later. If you think it looks fun, Casea, it’s got to be wild! LOL

      November 22, 2011 at 11:14 am

  10. Great post and that chair is awesome. If we had room in our bedroom, we would have one. Okay, sorry TMI.

    Congratulations on the release Jenna. I love this series and it just gets better and better.

    If I were 20 years younger, I would be able to do the positions but right now…no way. Thanks for the refresher Jenna and Casea.

    • Thanks, Marika! I guess we’ll both just have to live vicariously through the characters– who don’t seem to have a problem with the positions. LOL

      November 22, 2011 at 11:25 am

  11. Wonderful post, Jenna. And a great choice in guests, Casea. You have to wonder if the folks who wrote the Kama Sutra tried all their wild positions, or if they were a bit fantastical. I know that when I’m writing sex stuff I try to think of things that are different but don’t need a telestrator to explain. Good luck on your release, Jenna!

    November 22, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    • Thank you, Patricia! I’m sure some of those positions are truly either showing off or impossible to do. LOL Bodies just don’t bend that way!

      November 22, 2011 at 10:20 pm

  12. That one would require surgical removal of several vertebrae. Maybe 20yrs ago….
    lol

    Good post, Jenna!

    November 22, 2011 at 4:57 pm

    • Thanks, Heather! It was fun to do that part of the research. Even if it didn’t have a practical application for me. LOL Hubby and I would probably end up in traction!

      November 22, 2011 at 10:22 pm

  13. Patricia

    Due to back problems couldn’t do most of those in the Kama Sutra anyway. It is interesting to read though. As for a book, why go through the list? Your book, Almost Perfect, sounds very interesting, so i would like to get that one if I won.
    Thanks

    • Thanks for visiting Casea’s blog, Patricia. Good luck in the giveaway and I hope you get to enjoy Almost Perfect. 🙂

      November 22, 2011 at 10:24 pm

  14. Thank you once again, Casea, for having me on the blog today! I had a lot of fun meeting some of your subscribers and chatting with old friends. Happy Thanksgiving, all!
