    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.

    The Kama Sutra is an ancient Indian text widely considered to be the standard work on human sexual behavior in Sanskrit literature. It is over 1,700 years old, yet it remains a best seller to this day. Part of the reason, of course, is it's incredible advice and creativity in the art of loving. But it is much more than that.
