    I’ve read the kama sutra and I’ve been to the sun temple at Konarak, Orissa and the Khajuraho temple. I think many of the sculptural reliefs are very beautiful. I think sexuality is sacred with the right person and commitment, and is as open to interpretation as our imaginations and bodies are capable.

    I visited Khajuraho in Oct 2014. I was blown away by the place. 🙂
