Definition - What does Kama Sutra mean?

Kama Sutra is an ancient Indian text that explores human sexuality and the sociology of sex. It was originally written in Sanskrit, and it is believed that it was created by an Indian philosopher named Vatsyayana. Today, Kama Sutra is most known for the 64 different sexual positions that were outlined in the original text.

Kinkly explains Kama Sutra

The Kama Sutra text teaches that sex is one of life's greatest joys and should be a part of daily life. The 64 sexual positions outlined in the book may not all be for everyone, but the book certainly can provide some variety for those looking to mix things up. One example is the crab position, where a woman lies on her back with her knees pulled up to her stomach and the man enters her from a kneeling position. This is one of the easier Kama Sutra positions to get into.

There is a variety of books about Kama Sutra as well as downloadable apps.
