"The Kama Sutra stands uniquely as a work of psychology, sociology, Hindu dogma, and sexology. It has been a celebrated classic of Indian literature for 1,700 years and a window for the West into the culture and mysticism of the East.
This Modern Library Paperback Classic reprints the authoritative text of Sir Richard F. Burton's 1883 translation. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

The text is to be used as a tool to benefit those seeking pleasure but also a moral framework for r/ships. True it may puzzle some people, feminists and puritans in particular, for example the manipulation of males to gain female sexual pleasure, but also females towards males for the benefit of material wealth and sexual pleasures.
I was impressed with the easy, graceful transaltion of Burton.
