And the art of love, and great game are originated in India," said WGM Pogonina. “We will be reviewing the most interesting openings and middlegame positions and relating them to positions from Kamasutra; surprise our readers by introducing the “love theory” which is extremely effective for developing your chess skills and becoming happy in personal life; share unique trainings in “sexchess”, approbated by ourselves” she added.
Chess Kamasutra is going to be a very entertaining and useful book covering many interesting subjects – we aren’t revealing most of the secrets yet, but one day you’ll be able to see it for yourself.
The book will include techniques for chess players and ordinary lovers of sex - by beginning with a Sunday game undress and lead to very complex maneuvers such as "creating a weakness in the opponent”.

Variations in the development of subsequent events may be different and most of them largely depends on whether there will be "endshpil" or as in “Chess kamasutra” - orgasm.
