Penguin Evergreens: Kamasutra Selections presents an abridged version of the ancient Indian treatise on marital affairs and sexual intercourse by Vatsyayana.
Summary of the Book
The Kamasutra is one of the oldest and most detailed books on the art of sex. It is attributed to Vatsyayana, but legend has it that the Kamasutra is a part of a larger body of text originally scribed by the Bull God Nandi as he watched Shiva with his consort Parvati. In this book, one can find information on how to select a wife, and the meaning of marriage. It lists the duties of a husband towards his wife, and progresses to talk about what it calls the “64 arts”. In doing so, it has become one of the most famous books on the affairs of the bedroom and details every imaginable means of enticing, alluring and seducing one’s partner in ways that will have them on their knees squealing and begging for more.
Vatsyayana was a Hindu philosopher who is believed to have lived during the 3rd century CE. He is also purported to be the author of Nyaya Sutra Bhashya, the first commentary on Gotama's Nyaya Sutras.
