Carnal DevicesIndia dreads her occupation as a prostitute at Carnal Pleasures, a brothel in London. In order to kindle India’s passion for her work, Madam Rowena introduces her to Phineas, a renowned scholar in the field of sexual psychology. With the help of Phineas, his carnal devices, and the Kama Sutra, India attempts to reinvent herself as a sophisticated courtesan named India of Rajasthan.

Phineas is a  scholar and an intellectual. In India he finds a woman of imagination and intelligence, who needs guidance to realize her full potential. Not only does he help her believe in herself, but she in turn helps him indulge in a fantasy he has kept hidden for years—the sin of male-male love.

Reader Advisory: India’s sensual journey includes brief forays into ménage, female/female, and observing male/male sexual exploration.
