First 'Kama Sutra' audio book made
Thursday 05 August 2010
Historic sex guide the Kama Sutra is to be published as an audio book for the first time.
The Hindu text, which is believed to have been written around 1,600 years ago and was first translated into English in 1883, is read by Tanya Franks, who plays Rainie Cross in EastEnders.
She said: "Recording the audio book was when first I realised the Kama Sutra wasn't just a sex manual but a complete philosophy – and the philosophy is a whole lot easier to get to grips with than some of the positions."
