Synopsis असामान्य यौनप्रवृत्ति कोई आधुनिक या पश्चिमी बात नहीं है। दो हज़ार वर्षों से भी पुरानी हिन्दुत्व की विशाल मौखिक और लिखित परम्पराओं में असामान्य यौनप्रवृत्ति की कई कथाएँ और उदाहरण पाए जाते हैं, जैसे महाभारत में शिखण्डी जो अपनी पत्नी को सन्तुष्ट करने के लिए पुरुष बना; या फिर महादेव जो इसलिए स्त्री बने ताकि अपने भक्त के बच्चे को जन्म दे सकें; या चूडाला जो अपने पति को ज्ञान देने के लिए पुरुष बनी-ये और ऐसी अनेक कथाएँ इस पुस्तक में प्रस्तुत हैं। दिलचस्प और हृदयस्पर्शी, यहाँ तक कि उद्विग्नता पैदा करने वाली, ये कथाएँ इस बात की साक्षी हैं कि हमारे देश में असामान्य यौनप्रवृत्ति की कितनी पुरानी परम्परा है। देवदत्त पट्टनायक पौराणिक विषयों के जाने माने विशेषज्ञ हैं। पौराणिक कहानियों, संस्कारों और रीति-रिवाज़ों का हमारी आधुनिक जि़न्दगी में क्या महत्त्व है, इस विषय पर वह लिखते हैं और जगह-जगह व्याख्यान भी देते हैं। इनकी पन्द्रह से अधिक पुस्तकें प्रकाशित हो चुकी हैं और टीवी पर इनका कार्यक्रम भी दिखाया जाता है। विष्णु के सात रहस्य, शिव के सात रहस्य और देवी के सात रहस्य उनकी बहुचर्चित पुस्तकें हैं।
