Summary:
"The Kāma Sūtra deals without ambiguity or hypocrisy with all aspects of sexual life--including marriage, adultery, prostitution, group sex, sadomasochism, male and female homosexuality, and transvestism. The text paints a fascinating portrait of secular life in classical India ... whose openness to sexuality gave rise to a highly developed expression of the erotic."--Jacket.
