The Kama Sutra is often
tough 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 sexuality. 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.
As an editor I have tried to find and present to you what I
think is an unmodified original translation. I have 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 18th
and19th century Indian sex position illustrations to keep a certain amount of
consistency with the writings.
