This translation from the transkrit consists of practical advice on sexual intercourse. It is largely in prose, with many inserted anustubh poetry verses. "Kama" means sensual or sexual pleasure, and "sutra" literally means a thread or line that holds things together, and more metaphorically refers to an aphorism (or line, rule, formula), or a collection of such aphorisms in the form of a manual.

Although written in a different century, the Kama Sutra's advice on the techniques of pleasure are every bit as valid in today's modern age as it was in its own time. Today's couples are re-discovering the magic of the Kama Sutra and its wondrous techniques to celebrate their own sexuality in it's most natural and uninhibited form.
