This book combines the Hindu sage Vatsyayana's celebrated treatise with illustrations from various schools of painting on the theme of sexual pleasure. The intention of these works was to provide instruction as well as enjoyment. Its view of sexuality is both jaunty and pragmatic, its analysis of sexual politics often chillingly realistic.
In the beginning, the Lord of Beings created men and women... And Vatsyayana, poet, esthete and lover thought they should have some instruction for doing what they like to do best. Hence the Kama Sutra, the ancient manual of love, with descriptions ranging from the ninety-nine positions for sex, to instructions for hitting your lover in moments of passion and the appropriate sound to make with each swat, all the way to securing a wife. Translated from the Sanskrit, 'for private circulation only' and dedicated by the translator (famed explorer Sir Richard Francis Burton) 'to that small portion of the British public which takes enlightened interest in studying the manners and customs of the olden east, ' here is the 2000 year old Joy of Sex for the ages.

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. ------"The Kama Sutra is the most advanced and sensuous of all the ancient texts on sexuality" - Playboy Magazine --"This volume of the interpretation of the Kama Sutra shows the unbridled power and timelessness of sex in its most potent and beautiful expression. A highly recommended read. " - Cosmopolitan ---"Amazingly erotic and powerful" - Newsweek
Sir Richard F. Burton’s translation of The Kama Sutra remains one of the best English interpretations of this early Indian treatise on politics, social customs, love, and intimacy. Its crisp style set a new standard for Sanskrit translation. The Kama Sutra stands uniquely as a work of psychology, sociology, Hindu dogma, and sexology. It has been a celebrated classic of Indian literature for 1,700 years and a window for the West into the culture and mysticism of the East. This Modern Library Paperback Classic reprints the authoritative text of Sir Richard F. Burton’s 1883 translation.
In the literature of all countries there will be found a certain number of works treating especially of love. Everywhere the subject is dealt with differently, and from various points of view. In the present publication it is proposed to give a complete translation of what is considered the standard work on love in Sanscrit literature, and which is called the 'Vatsyayana Kama Sutra,' or Aphorisms on Love, by Vatsyayana. While the introduction will bear with the evidence concerning the date of the writing, and the commentaries written upon it, the chapters following the introduction will give a translation of the work itself. It is, however, advisable to furnish here a brief analysis of works of the same nature, prepared by authors who lived and wrote years after Vatsya had passed away, but who still considered him as a great authority, and always quoted him as the chief guide to Hindoo erotic literature.
