This book has had centuries of influence in the East and in the West.The Kama Sutra is an ancient Indian Hindu[1][2] text widely considered to be the standard work on human sexual behavior in Sanskrit literature written by Vatsyayana. A portion of the work consists of practical advice on sexual intercourse.[3] It is largely in prose, with many inserted anustubh poetry verses. “Kama” which is one of the three goals of Hindu life, means sensual or sexual pleasure, and “sutra” literally means a thread or line that holds things together
