The Kama Sutra is often thought of as the age old sex position manual. That is a common misconception. Only about 20% of the book concerns sex positions. In reality, The Kama Sutra is a comprehensive way of looking at all aspects of sexuality and sexual relationships. It is about getting to a place where you can maintain a good loving relationship, and where sex is about pleasing each other and knowing how to make each other feel good. Written approximately 1500 years ago in India, this is the AGE OLD sex training manual and is a great book for anyone in a relationship. As an editor I have chosen the Sir Richard Burton translation of 1883. And I have tried to present to you what I think is an unmodified copy of that original translation. I have also tried to keep the text as original as I can - including spelling and punctuation. And although the original translation was not illustrated, I have researched and included fifty-nine 18thand 19th century Indian sex position illustrations to keep a certain amount of consistency with the writings.
