The Kama Sutra of Vatsyayana Audiobook

The Kama Sutra of Vatsyayana

Written by the ancient Indian philosopher Vatsyayana sometime between the first and sixth centuries A.D., the Kama Sutra is literally translated as "Aphorisms on Love". It is intended as a manual for not only love and intimacy but also a treatise on the politics and customs of relationships between men and women. The Kama Sutra, while sought after for its instruction on sexual positions, is much more than just a guide for lovemaking. Presented here is the classic translation by Sir Richard Francis Burton.

    "Well done"

    200CE Indian women had more social rights and privileges than 1800CE European women. Quite a commentary on western values if read from this angle rather than a love manual, which it really isn't in the popular modern expectation.

    "This is the World Famous Kama Sutra"
    Any additional comments?

    So this is the world famous Kama Sutra. I went into this fully expecting to learn the secrets of love. And believe me I did, for example I learned how to seek into a kings harem and have a wild fun time. I learned how to enslave a woman to my will by throwing monkey feces at her and I learned many more such useful tricks.

    Too bad I don't know any kings with harems and monkey feces are hard to come by in my neck of the woods.
