Meet the Author

The Kama Sutra was written by Mallanaga of the clan or sept called Vatsyayana. Mallanaga was a holy man, a seer, and a sage, and in all of the spiritual senses of the word, a tantric. He worshipped the Divine as both feminine and masculine, and lived primarily a religious life.

He wrote the Kama Sutra for the ruling class, which at that time in India's history was the Kshatriya, or Warrior caste. Based on mentions of 1st Century historical figures in the Kama Sutra, and on mentions of the Kama Sutra in early 5th Century works, we know that Mallanaga Vatsyayana wrote the Sutra sometime between the 1st and 4th Centuries A.D.

I believed this one to be a guide with pictures and the names of each position but it's more just a walk through of sexuality.

The book looks like they printed and bound a post from a 90s Usenet group. The entire book is just plain, unformatted text, even going as far as using underscores beside text instead of italics. There is no change in font or size in any of the text, even for chapter headings, which are not even given page breaks. I would comment on the lack of a table of contents, but even if it had one, it would be useless, since the pages are unnumbered. Particularly for a public domain work like this, there is no reason to settle for something this poorly made.
