What is Kama Sutra?
The Kama Sutra is an ancient Indian Hindu text widely considered to be the standard work on human sexual behavior in Sanskrit literature written by Vātsyāyana. Historians attribute Kama Sutra to be composed between 400 BCE and 200 CE.
A portion of the work consists of practical advice on sexual intercourse. It is largely in prose, with many inserted poetry verses. “Kāma” which is one of the four goals of Hindu life, means desire including sexual desire the latter being the subject of the textbook, and “sūtra” literally means a thread or line that holds things together.
Contrary to popular perception, especially in the western world, Kama sutra is not exclusively a sex manual; it presents itself as a guide to a virtuous and gracious living that discusses the nature of love, family life and other aspects pertaining to pleasure oriented faculties of human life. Kama Sutra, in parts of the world, is presumed or depicted as a synonym for creative sexual positions; in reality, only 20% of Kama Sutra is about sexual positions.
Many in the Western world wrongly consider the Kama Sutra to be a manual for tantric sex. While sexual practices do exist within the very wide tradition of Hindu Tantra, the Kama Sutra is not a Tantric text, and does not touch upon any of the sexual rites associated with some forms of Tantric practice.

What does Kama Sutra mean to me?
For me, Kamasutra is to understand the art of music and poetry,
and to unify myself with these arts.
I like to play with music and poetry, with eroticism and lust to become seductive.
At the same time I commit myself to a continuous process of exploration and discovery.
I want to observe and be fully aware of the beauty around me and in me.
