Kama Sutra Meets Futuristic Technology & iPod !

Posted in Futuristic Gadgets, Health & Beauty with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 31, 2009 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

I recently came across a book name “Art of Kama Sutra” and was facinated by the beautifully illustrations of this ancient art/scripture! For many centuries even now, the word & activity of “Sex” has and is still a “Taboo” topic for some people. But come think of it, sex is actually the oldest recorded and the most “normal” activity for human & any living organism to reproduce and pass on their genes to continue their species. But I guess as the ime goes by, maybe some religion started to use it as an weapon to control people’s mind to maintain their own power and whatever they are trying to achieve, the SEX has became “Taboo” or “Sin” !

But if it’s so “Sinful” or “wrong” then why will there be pleasures that encourage us to keep “doing it” ? haha! anyway, this blog is not about confronting any spiritual believes or try to convenience anyone into any believes.

So we did a little study on the Art of kama Sutra… (’cause knowledge is power! wink)

The Kama Sutra (Sanskrit: कामसूत्र), (alternative spellings: Kamasutram or simply Kamasutra), is an ancient Indian text widely considered to be the standard work on love in Sanskrit literature written by the Indian intellectual Vatsyayana. A portion of the work deals with human sexual behavior.
 
The Kama Sutra is mostly notable of a group of texts known generically as Kama Shastra ( Sanskrit: Kāma Śhāstra ). Traditionally, the first transmission of Kama Shastra or “Discipline of Kama” is attributed to Nandi the sacred bull, shiva’s doorkeeper, who was moved to sacred utterance by overhearing the lovemaking of the god and his wife Parvati and later recorded his utterances for the benefit of mankind.

The Mallanaga Vatsyayana’s Kama Sutra has 1250 verses, distributed in 36 chapters, which are further organized into 7 parts. According to both the Burton and Doniger translations, the contents of the book are structured into 7 parts like the following:

Content:

1. Introductory
Chapters on contents of the book, three aims and priorities of life, the acquisition of knowledge, conduct of the well=bred townsman, reflections on intermediaries who assist the lover in his enterprises (5 chapters).

2. On sexual union
Chapters on stimulation of desire, types of embraces, caressing and kisses, marking with nails, biting and marking with teeth, on copulation (positions), slapping by hand and corresponding moaning, virile behavior in women, superior coition and oral sex, preludes and conclusions to the game of love. It describes 64 types of sexual acts (10 chapters).
 
3. About the acquisition of a wife
Chapters on forms of marriage, relaxing the girl, obtaining the girl, managing alone, union by marrage (5 chapters)


4. About a wife
Chapters on conduct of the only wife and conduct of the chief wife and other wives (2 chapters).
 
5. About the wives of other people
Chapters on behavior of woman and man, encounters to get acquainted, examination of sentiments, the task of go-between, the king’s pleasures, behavior in the women’s quarters (6 chapters).
 
6. About courtesans
Chapters on advice of the assistants on the choice of lovers, looking for a steady lover, ways of making money, renewing friendship with a former lover, occasional profits, profits and losses (6 chapters).
 
7. On the means of attracting others to one’s self
Chapters on improving physical attractions, arousing a weakened sexual power (2 chapters).

Pleasure and spirituality

Some Indian philosophies following the “four main goals of life”, known as the purusharthas:

1). Dharma: Virtuous living. 2). Artha: Material prosperity. 3). Kama: Aesthetic and erotic pleasure. 4). Moksha: Liberation.

Dharma, Artha and Kama are aims of everyday life, while Moksha is release from the cycle of death and rebirth. The Kama Sutra (Burton translation) says:
“Dharma is better than Artha, and Artha is better than Kama. But Artha should always be first practised by the king for the livelihood of men is to be obtained from it only. Again, Kama being the occupation of public women, they should prefer it to the other two, and these are exceptions to the general rule.” (Kama Sutra 1.2.14)
 
Of the first three, virtue is the highest goal, a secure life the second and pleasure the least important. When motives conflict, the higher ideal is to be followed. Thus, in making money virtue must not be compromised, but earning a living should take precedence over pleasure, but there are exceptions.
 
In childhood, Vātsyāyana says, a person should learn how to make a living; youth is the time for pleasure, and as years pass one should concentrate on living virtuously and hope to escape the cycle of rebirth.

The Kama Sutra is sometimes wrongly thought of as a manual for tantric sex. While sexual practices do exist within the very wide tradition of Hindu tantra, the Kama Sutra is not a tantric text, and does not touch upon any of the sexual rites associated with some forms of tantric practice.

 

 

 

 

 

Also the Buddha preached a Kama Sutra, which is located in the Atthakavagga (sutra number 1). This Kama Sutra, however, is of a very different nature as it warns against the dangers that come with the search for pleasures of the senses.
So after all the reading about the Kama Sutra, We’ve notice it’s spring time again! the weather warms up, flowers blooms, you see frogs are doing it, walrus, turtles, lions even lady bugs are getting “busy”!

Happy 50th Birthday Barbie !

Posted in Barbie, Celebrity & Entertainment with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 24, 2009 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

As Barbie celebrates her 50th anniversary, an outrageously pink affair , I’m reminiscing about my own Barbie collection. I adored Barbies as a child. I loved dressing them in sparkling gowns and twirly skirts (My very first Barbie was the “Crystal Fantasy Barbie”). My Barbies had boxes brimming with tulle tutus, stylish suits, and pretty-in-pink dresses. I remember all the tiny snaps and bits of velcro and sweet ruffle detail.

My Barbies? They were fashionable, strong independent women who can do anything! and that bitch has everything! from her super hot boyfriend Ken to her fabulous malibu dream house and convertable…. she calls the shot & Ken always rode as a passenger in Barbie’s pink convertible & Barbie is the one driving!

She owned her own home, a two-story affair with lovely lattice detail, the fruits of a successful career as a veterinarian, Astronut, Nurse, Artist… Presumably, Barbie paid for all her own classy couture and grand living.




When my Barbie ran for President, nobody wondered if the world was ready for a female in the White House (Maybe that’s why I wanted Hillary to win the white house in this past election LOL). My Executive Barbie was never paid less than her male counterparts. I never wondered how my Doctor Barbie conquered work-life balance and date George Clooney in the ER room haha; she just did! My Barbies? They were successful, pioneering women with style and taste of couture, she has inspried me to be a fashion designer as I am now.


 
She’ll be walking the runway at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City, where 50 world-renowned fashion designers will celebrate the past, present and future of Barbie-inspired fashion

 

 

The fabulous festivities will continue with a Special Barbie Boutique & Exhibit at Colette in Paris and the grand opening of Barbie’s first flagship store in Shanghai. Dylan’s Candy Bar, Stila, and Bloomingdales will all join in the festivities.
Become a Barbie fan on
Facebook for even more of the hottest buzz surrounding Barbie’s 50th – and follow Barbie’s tweets.

You know, after all of Barbie’s trailblazing and triumphs, she no doubt deserves such a grand jubilee.
 
 
Happy Birthday Barbie !!
