This translation of The Kama Sutra is the most recent version of the venerable (and rightly venerated) ancient Indian advice for pursuing physical pleasure with sensuous abandon.

The original author, Vatsyayana, is shrouded in historic mystery. The best guess about when he lived is sometime between the first and third centuries. He is believed to have written The Kama Sutra while devoting himself to the celibate life. This edition moves past the traditional fixation on sexual positions and instead focuses on its original purpose: educating young men in the fine art of living well. The continued appeal of The Kama Sutra, though, lies in various forms of the physical expression of love it presents without the impediment of moral judgments.

For those with a desire to expand their sexually horizons or simply those with a historical curiosity, The Kama Sutra is an entertaining read.
