about

Absolutely riveting. I couldn't put it down. Everything you wanted to know about sex . . . in India, but never dared ask."-Mark Shand, author ofTravels on my Elephant and winner of the Travel Writer of the Year award Sally Howard, a self-confessed child of the western sexual revolution, sets out on a "sexploration" through modern India. With experiences collected over fifteen years of crisscrossing the enormous country, from the heat of anti-rape protest on the streets of New Delhi to the cool hills of Shimla, playground of the Raj; from a Gujurati retirement home for gay men and eunuchs to a busy sex clinic in Chennai, Howard lifts the bed sheets on India's sexual revolution. And it's a revolution that's full of fascinating surprises and contrasts; for India-the land that gave us the most famous-or infamous-guide to sexual pleasure, the Kama Sutra, is also the land where couples fear to hold hands in public and where women remain cloistered in purdah. With compelling contradictions and characters,The Kama Sutra Diaries paints a vibrant portrait of modern-day love, sex, and sexuality in an India caught between a sensual past and evolving present. Sally Howard is freelance travel and human interest journalist and author. A contributor to many of the world's most prestigious media, including theSunday Times,Forbes Lifestyle, and theSunday Telegraph. "
