Kama Sutra Game
For more than a thousand years, Kama Sutra has been a guide for lovers of all ages. The Kama Sutra Game interprets this great work and offers to couples as an interactive game experience giving lovers the opportunity to explore the sensual and sexual aspects of their bodies, minds, and relationships on a journey to experience ecstasy.
The object of the game is to develop a deeper understanding of what you and your partner desire and want in your intimate relationship. Engage in an extended session of lovemaking that builds on anticipation, creativity, adventure and a progression of physical intimacy while expanding your sensory awareness through activities using sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch.
Includes: Game board, 56 activity and position cards, a die, 2 playing pieces and instructions. Box measures 11" x 9" x 2".
TOOL SHED TEAM REVIEW
This game is a hybrid of communication and direct physical/sexual interaction with a partner.
The Kama Sutra game is one of the most sensually-focused games in our selection. It also has some of the best described rules and preparation of any game we've seen. The instructions include suggestions for creating an environment that engages all the senses, as well as ways to focus on your partner during the game, encouraging connection. They include a safer sex reminder and encourage players to feel free to accept or refuse anything in the game that they don't feel comfortable with.
The game consists of a large format playing board wIth 80 different prompts, as well as spaces where you can draw from 36 Kama Sutra cards, 2 invitation cards, and 16 position cards. Players move around the board using playing pieces and dice.
The board prompts, the Kama Sutra cards, and the invitation cards do not use any gender-specific language, and genitals are typically generalized to "below the waist." The position cards, however, use binary-gendered language are are designed to show different positions for penis-vagina intercourse (much like in the original Kama Sutra, on which this game is based). The position cards use simple line drawings to depict a (presumably) cisgender heterosexual couple engaged in a position. Couples who do not engage in penis-vagina intercourse might choose to either adapt these position cards, or simply not use them altogether.
The ending of the game is reaching the "Ecstasy" space, where a position card is played. Again, folks for whom penis-vagina intercourse is not a preference or option, an adaptation could be made to choose from a couple's favorite sexual activities, using positions they enjoy.
Accessibility note: Some of the positions shown in the cards are difficult to achieve; the game does note this on those cards. Many of the other cards and prompts are easily performed by people of varying physical abilities. Players may wish to adapt the game or remove certain cards as needed.
