The cultivation of pleasure was brought to its height with the Kamasutra: the Hindu text of erotic love. This sophisticated and provocative teaching from ancient India has continued to intrigue us for generations, offering explicit instructions in the art of living and lovemaking. Now, Wendy Doniger, one of the world's foremost scholars of Sanskrit and Hindu mythology, offers a fresh and insightful new translation of this treasury of sensual secrets with The Essential Kamasutra.

Through alluring stories and surprisingly practical advice, you will learn the language of attraction, how to recognize the unspoken signals from someone who wants you. You'll also gain insight on rituals to prepare yourself and your bedroom for the delights of erotic love, a sexual vocabulary of kisses, embraces, and caresses, the four kinds of love and how to nourish each of them, plus how the tension of a sexual battle enhances pleasure, and more.

Translations of the Kamasutra have been available for more than a century, with over 150 versions currently in print. Here, for the first time through spoken word, the long-hidden gems of the Kamasutra are revealed to bring the delicious fulfillment of love, deep connection, and enlightened pleasure to your life.

Listener Opinions

    " It's more than just about sex and it a fun and insightful way of understanding the history of a nation beyond it's history as a British colony and subsequent Democracy "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rodrigo J | 2/5/2014

    " Just great. We westerners take classes of everything, tennis and golf, for example? But we assume that we do not need them here... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aileen | 1/13/2014

    " It wasn't what I thought it would be. There's some pretty cool historical information and some fun new ways to refer to genitals. I think more than anything it showed a level of comfort with anything sexual. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 1/13/2014

    " So, this is the best translation by the experts. It reads like a dry history text and figuring out any useful information is rather wearing. I suspect the Burton translation, while less reverent, is probably more useful. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karim | 1/8/2014

    " Strange book, may be it has some advantages, but it has very strange philosophy and can not be a strong reference to all women of every region of the world. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sarah Packer | 1/8/2014

    " Ha ha ha no pictures and in a foreign language, not quite what I expected! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charlie | 1/6/2014

    " I have the english version of this book (The Pop-up Kama Sutra)... it's certainly good for laughs, with the interactive popups. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Huw Winston | 1/4/2014

    " No way in hell could I hold let alone perform in over half of those positions!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bev Hankins | 11/21/2013

    " One of those books that I read just so I could say I have. Actually, a pretty interesting, scholarly edition. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Russell | 6/12/2013

    " It's like reading stereo instructions. It's an interesting insight into ancient Indian culture though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 6/11/2013

    " I admit, I was sort of hoping it would be spicier even as I reminded myself that Kama Sutra is actually a book of cultural and historical significance. This version should be read from that standpoint. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stefan Detrez | 5/13/2013

    " Fallocentric classic on how to woe a woman, providing interesting insights into traditional roles of men and women in India. Some stuff still works, other stuff's outdated in courting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 5/28/2011

    " Interesting but a bit dry. This book discusses sexuality and relationships in general. A newer translation may suit the curious better than this version. Preferably one with pictures...haha. I heard there is a pop-up version! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sean | 7/4/2009

    " Honestly, this book never really leaves my "currently-reading" section. Sadly, I never get to apply its sage methods. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 toshie | 8/6/2008

    " i didn't know i could put my foot there too... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff Littrell | 4/10/2008

    " I checked this out just for kicks, but I thought it was pretty cool. We can always learn more about pleasing our partner(s). It was informative and inventive ! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kataklicik | 2/26/2007

    " Over-rated lah. Or maybe I'm the one with no imagination... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patrick | 10/26/2006

    " This has something for everybody - it's a combination sex manual, etiquette guide, self-help book, and encyclopedia. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Olivia | 10/21/2005

    " Great book! Before the "Shades" series..there was the Kama Sutra! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Don Abdul | 1/29/2005

    " A complete manual for all those who wish to become better lovers. The book doesn't just focus only on sexual positions but the entire science of courtship, romance and lovemaking. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 11/19/2004

    " Still haven't finished reading it... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrei Ștefănucă | 1/19/2004

    " An extremely simplistic, esoteric and symbolic discourse on the space of potential interaction between man and woman, whatever man and whatever woman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa | 9/14/2003

    " A lot of text instead of instructional photos. But the interactive pop-ups aid in that area. Beautifully done and well constructed pop-ups...except the first one in my used copy is broken. :( Expect to learn some Indian culture. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 A. End | 9/13/2003

    " Feel certain I could improve upon this. "
