Summary

The ultimate book of erotic love, the Kamasutra is, above all, about inventive sensuality. It is both a celebration of, and a guide to, the good sexual life. In this small, intimate book, a leading authority on ancient Indian art and classical erotica unpacks the Kamasutra in four thematic sections:

•Nayaka and Nayika—the love escapades of the sensual man and the sensual woman;

•Maithuna—imagination and the sexual act;

•Ananda—sex as the route to ultimate bliss;

•Ganika—the courtesan as the guide to ananda.

Containing seventy full-page erotic paintings and photographs, this is a delightful little book of pure, uninhibited pleasure.
