The Kamasutra is an ancient classical work on the art of love. Its uniqueness lies in that it discusses the theme of sexual pleasure without any feeling of shyness or shame.

The author, Vatsyayana talks about Kama, that is, sexual pleasure, and explains the rules which govern life according to Kama. Through its discussion on erotic love, the book manages to highlight the social customs and individual habits of ancient India.

This tastefully produced and beautifully illustrated gift edition treats the subject of male and female sexuality in two separate volumes, suggestively entitled The Amorous Man and the Sensuous Woman. The male-female union is portrayed in all its splendor through the use of Indian miniatures and Khajuraho sculptures.
