4.0 out of 5 starsWho Needs the Gym? Just Sexercise!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 15 November 2018
I'm reviewing the Kama Sutra Workout: Work Hard, Play Harder with 300 Sensual Sexercises by DK, and it's a mind-boggling, eye-opening read that I'm glad I got to see. I mean, surely this should be on everyone's 1001 books to read before they die? (At least a version of the actual Kama Sutra). Even if it is just to see what you're missing!
From "The Steamy Handstand" (is this even possible in real life?) to the "Thrust of Lust" (don't ask!) there are some very colourful, and detailed (my husband says "disturbing!" LOL ) pictures to guide you through some equally creative Kama Sutra positions. These have accompanying "sexercises" to give you and your partner a full body workout. (What? On top of getting into these positions in the first place? That's work out enough for me).
I wish I could share with you pictures, but I think I'd be banned from Amazon if I did. It's a small book in size but has plenty of width to keep you happy. Innuendo intended.
The idea is you swap the gym for the bedroom and (depending on how young and flexible you are) choose the "workout" you most fancy from the back of the book. These consist of a complete sex session by following a sequence of three positions, or if you're feeling really energetic you can use the position selectors to choose your next random sexercise.
This isn't really about exercise. Let's be honest, it's barely about the Kama Sutra. The cool thing about this book is the energy/flexibility metrics. It shows you which partner will be doing most of the work or when it's evenly distributed. It also shows which muscles to engage to get the most out of it, which is really handy when you're on a more complicated page and wondering how in the heck you're supposed to make it work. The one thing that I would change is that I would organize the entries by effort, maybe on a least to greatest scale. It's a lot of flipping pages around. Also, best to just go ahead and laugh at the illustrations. The figures' faces are genuinely funny, and laughing is all part of the experience. Have fun and try new things!
Okay I haven’t given this to my husband yet, BUT I know he’s going to get a kick out of this. We are both active people in and out of the bedroom so I know we can do most of these “activities”. I’m not going to lie though, I flipped through this book and gawked at some of the positions. Maybe it’s because we aren’t Circus Soleil performers, and maybe you are so you wouldn’t be shocked by these! We’ll still try and probably still get a good workout in, I just got a good giggle out of some of them! TONS of sexual exercises and it goes into detail of what type of workout, what it exercises, and how strenuous it is. It’s well written! It really is!

Bit joy of sex type illustrations of ostensibly white heterosexuals (sorry, but this is actually peculiar these days, writing as a white heterosexual). No one claims to be an author of the chunky little book, but there is an exercise consultant. Not sure of the exercise value of holding a position for just one minute (there are 1-5 minute and 5-10 minute contortions.). Details of what goes where are coyly hazy too (we have an internet connection, and this is somewhat tame). Basically the joke present, the early love stage present....printed on matt paper which doesn’t look too wipe clean. So are they balancing at the bottom of the stairs in that one?
