The Kama Sutra, an ancient Indian Hindu text, is widely considered to be the standard work on sex. A part of the work consists of practical advice on sexual intercourse. But contrary to popular perception, mostly in the western world, Kama Sutra is not just a sex manual; it presents itself as a philosophical guide to a gracious and sensual living - written eighteen centuries ago, it is today accepted as unique amongst the classical works on love and love-making. The Indian author Vatsyayana has treated this exceedingly delicate theme with a delightful candour. This edition contains the original Kama Sutra, translated by Sir Richard Burton, optimized for all digital reading devices.
