Alongside the famous Kamasutra, intended for heteronormative sexuality, Sidaction is launching Kamasutra+, an illustrated project to educate about inclusive sex.
“Love has no borders, neither those of bodies nor those of gender. But love has a beginning: self-love. So let’s throw away everything that holds us back. Let’s celebrate the body, lengthwise, crosswise, across, upside down”. This is how the Kamasutra+ imagined by Sidaction, in collaboration with the Kiblind studio and the agency The Good Company, was introduced.
A MORE MODERN VERSION OF THE SEX GUIDE
The objective is both to address all genders, but also all sexualities, by continuing to educate on ways to protect yourself from HIV . Sidaction’s general manager, Florence Thune, summed up the project by the desire to “celebrate and protect all loves”. ” To protect yourself against HIV you need fulfilling and consenting sex . At that time, you are more likely to find ways to take care of yourself and protect yourself against HIV,” she added.
Sex toys , condoms, hair, different morphologies, or even post-mastectomy scars … The Kamasutra+ raises awareness of prevention but also educates the eye on the diversity of bodies . To build it, many artists have participated, such as Genie Espinosa, author of the drawing “The bulb to change”, Eniko Katalin Eged who signs “The garden of delights”, Jack Cachete at the initiative of the position known as “The frog”, Marie Boiseau who represents “the mouthwash”.
Aesthetic and humorous, the guide dusts off the very heteronormative vision of the classic Kamasutra and shows more realistic scenes around the search for pleasure , regardless of the type of sexuality one has embraced.

LOOK AT YOURSELF, AND USE YOUR HANDS
To set it up, one of you must lie on your right side. The other kneels down with your right leg below him (or her), and swings your left leg over his hips. In this way the left leg is “wrapped” around his chest, hence the name “pretzel”…
The position not only allows an optimal angle in terms of penetration (a bit like doggy style), but above all offers the possibility of being completely connected to the other by being face to face, and to be able to look at each other . The bonus? Your hands are free. Women’s Health suggests using it to add pleasure… It’s up to you!
