Overview

The Kama Sutra is an ancient Indian Hindu text widely considered to be the standard work on human sexual behavior in Sanskrit literature written by Vatsyayana.The most ancient book on Kamasutra was composed in Abhira Kingdom and is considered by many through the ages to be the definitive tome on the art of sexuality and a practical instruction manual in the art of lovemaking and sensuality.

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.
