tangles my lungs, knits into my heart,
crawls up my throat
and sucks like octopi on my tongue.
- "The Love Plant," US poet Anne Sexton
The book is part of a continuing series of “Little Black Books” and “Little Pink Books.” Other titles include The Little Black Book of [how to break the fifth Buddhist precept] and The Little Pink Book of Etiquette.
The Kama Sutra book is very much in line with a growing trend of publishing books as interactive apps instead of as e-books. The only trouble is that the book is sexual in nature [there goes the third precept*] and illustrated with photographs [of alluring positions that will make one wish one had practiced more yoga].
The Kama Sutra puts Apple in an awkward position.
The content is really an Indian religious text [on sex and sensual enjoyment because India did not always have the hang ups about sex we and it now do] that predates the fall of the Roman Empire.
