Synopses & Reviews
Written in the 16th century by Arabian Sheik Umar ibn Muhammed al-Nefzawi, The Perfumed Garden
was first translated into the English language by world-famous orientalist and explorer Sir Richard Burton in the 1800s. Its wealth of sensual, sexual and erotic knowledge is now presented with a modern perspective and sumptuous photography and illustrations.
The Illustrated Perfumed Garden explores every aspect of love-making from the finer points of fantastic foreplay to the amorous embraces of afterplay as well as illustrating over fifty of the Sheik's often unique sexual positions. It also includes chapters dealing with tools, toys and techniques for more adventurous loveplay, sex for people of different shapes and sizes and, importantly in this decade, safe sex practices.
