Written by Vatsyayana sometime between the 1st and 6th centuries A.D., "Kama Sutra" is literally translated as "Aphorisms on Love." Intended as a manual for not only love and intimacy but also a treatise on the politics and customs of relationships between men and women. The "Kama Sutra", while sought after for its instruction on sexual positions, is much more than just a guide for lovemaking. Presented here is the classic translation of Sir Richard Burton.

Sir Richard F. Burton's translation of "The Kama Sutra remains one of the best English interpretations of this early Indian treatise on politics, social customs, love, and intimacy. Its crisp style set a new standard for Sanskrit translation.
"The Kama Sutra stands uniquely as a work of psychology, sociology, Hindu dogma, and sexology. It has been a celebrated classic of Indian literature for 1,700 years and a window for the West into the culture and mysticism of the East.
This Modern Library Paperback Classic reprints the authoritative text of Sir Richard F. Burton's 1883 translation.
“[The Kama Sutra is] tender, sage, and domestic.” —Fawn M. Brodie
