Introduction to Kama Sutra

Kama Sutra is a famous text from ancient India that deals with life in a relationship. The work was written by Mallanga Vatsyana approximately in 200 AD. However, the author himself acknowledges that he has merely compiled the book from other, more ancient sources.

A common misconception relating to this book is that it is focused only on the art of making love. In reality this topic is dealt with only in one out of seven chapters. In fact, only a part of this specific chapter is devoted to the topic that has gained fame to the whole work, the love-making positions. The rest of the chapter deals with love-making at a more general level.
