During our Wheel of Time recaps, we couldn’t get over how many horses we learned about. Now that we’re reading the actual books, it is sword forms that are catching our eye. And boy did they catch our eye. Mostly because they could very easily be in another tome. Namely, the Kama Sutra.

Let’s play a game. Here are a list of things from both The Wheel of Time: The Gathering Storm and the Kama Sutra (as told to me by a somewhat illuminating British women’s magazine). See if you can figure out which is which.

1. The Viper Flicks Its Tongue
2. Cat Dances on the Wall
3. The Rocking Horse
4. Leopard’s Caress
5. Folding the Air
6. Cat on Hot Sand
7. The Glowing Triangle
8. Hummingbird Kisses the Honeyrose
9. Apple Blossoms in the Wind
10. Shake Dew from the Branch
11. The Curled Angel
12. Parting the Silk
13. Rat Gnawing the Grain

Got your answers? Okay! Scroll down to see how you’ve done!





The sex acts are 3, 7, and 11. The rest are all sword forms from The Wheel of Time series! I know, I know… Parting the Silk? Shake Dew from the Branch? Hummingbird Kisses the Honeyrose? What can I say? Way to go, Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson!

No fan art this time. What are you all thinking! Eesh!
