Full description for The Kama Sutra of Vatsyayana
"Kama" means desire, love, and lust; "sutra" means teachings and "verses." The "Kama Sutra, " then, is the book of love, teaching the best methods of cultivating sensual pleasure, sexual desire, and loving union. A classic of world literature for 1,700 years, this is the most explicit and fascinating book ever written for lovers. This immortal work also serves as a window into Indian culture and mysticism. Its unique approach --combining meditations on politics and social customs with counsel on love and intimacy--features frank, direct advice on bodily pleasures, from aphrodisiacs and kissing to orgasm-delaying techniques. This edition is the renowned translation by the great 19th-century explorer and writer Richard Burton. Its crisp style sets a new standard for Sanskrit translation, and its unblushing faithfulness to the original text sparked controversy in certain corners of the Victorian world. A wellspring of erotic knowledge, it remains an inspiration to readers of every era.
