The Kama Sutra is an ancient text of Indian Hindu origin written by Vatsyayana, a Verdic Hindu philosopher. A standard piece in Sanskrit literature on human sexual behavior, the Kama Sutra has a good deal of its texts highlighting practical advice for making the most out of sexual intercourse. In short, it’s a sex book. However, the Kama Sutra though is more than just a book with lots of crazy sex positions. Rather, it is a guide that aims to lead towards the best kind of living by tackling love and family life and other aspects of one’s life that pleasure can be derived from. Only because sex is considered to be one of the foremost sources of pleasure that the Kama Sutra was associated with such.
There are English translations of the Kama Sutra so you can definitely get yourself a copy and acquaint yourself with what Vatsyayana had to say about dealing with the pleasures of life. However, if you are just interested in the crazy sex positions, you can easily get a copy of that chapter of the Kama Sutra online. The proliferation of this chapter may have also contributed to the assumption that the Kama Sutra is just full of sex tricks and positions to spice up the way you make love.
