Vatsyayana lived in India nearly 2000 years ago; nothing is known about him except that he authored Kama Sutra.Treating pleasure as an art, Kama Sutra is a handbook covering every aspect of love and relationships. Its seven sections are devoted to everything from social life to detailed instruction on sexual techniques. This beautiful new edition dispels the well-worn image of an erotic Oriental curiosity, highlighting the work's historical importance as a sophisticated guide to living well. Conveying all the original flavour and feel of this elegant, intimate and hugely enjoyable work, this clear, accurate translation is a masterpiece of pithy description and a wry account of human desires and foibles.
