One of the first books I ever bought myself in college that wasn’t a required text was the Kama Sutra. I was in my ’90s-era hippie chick phase, and I’d heard that this book was 1) Indian 2) about crazy sex positions, so I was pretty psyched to read it. But of course the Kama Sutra is not nearly as thrilling as anyone who hasn’t experienced it expects it to be — kinda like marriage, amIright??? Simon Rich and Farley Katz know what I’m talkin’ about, and they’ve written a book on the subject, aptly titled, The Married Kama Sutra: The World’s Least Erotic Sex Manual. Here are some of the hilarious marital “positions” they’ve created:
When I asked author Farley Katz what the secret to a happy marriage is, he answered, “Purchasing numerous copies of this book.” That, and keeping a sense of humor. If you live in New York City and you’d like to see Katz’s co-author Simon Rich and I argue that single life is far superior, come see the Uptown Showdown on November 13th at 8 pm at Symphony Space.
