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.

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.
I'm a web developer based out of Sacramento, I listen to books while I work, and love audible.
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.
