The Married Kama Sutra describes itself as the world's least erotic manual. However, while the volume isn't quite sexy, it's absolutely hilarious. Created by Simon Rich and Farley Katz, the book explores how the kids, the dishwasher, and other nuisances transform a couple's sex life.

And it's about time the Kama Sutra got an update! Don't get me wrong, the old guide to the "art-of-loving" is fine and all, but modern society needs something more... up to date. Complete with four-color, full-page illustrations in the style of the original, but with modern, domestic accouterments, here are the poses, positions, and games married lovers play nowadays to keep the spark alive.

"Simon and I met on the Harvard Lampoon comedy magazine," Farley Katz told Bored Panda. The undergraduate humor publication was founded all the way back in 1876, and for some time Rich was even its president.

Even though the Kama Sutra is the oldest surviving Hindu text on erotic love, the original composition date or century is unknown. Historians place it somewhere between 400 BCE and 300 CE.

Vatsyayana Mallanaga is its widely accepted author because his name is embedded in the colophon verse, however, little is known about him.

The Married Kama Sutra would probably make a good wedding or anniversary gift. The authors managed to write down all the things the rest of us only think about without sacrificing their charm. "It's a lighthearted, fun romp through the crippling realities of commitment," Katz said.

This one is my mom when my dad’s twelve years old sneakers are literally showing his socks but he insists “no it’s fine, besides, they’re my comfiest ones”.

I agree with Ana, just imagine if it were the other way around. That’s breakup material right there. Also, pedo shit.

When my wife comes in and I quickly close the lap top and she asks what I was looking at, I say it's porn because I'm too embarrassed to admit I was looking at funny kitten videos on YouTube.
