Sir Richard F Burton’s translation of The Kama Sutra remains one of the best English interpretations of this early Indian treatise on politics social customs love and intimacy Like most children my brother and I knew where everything was in our house paying particular attention to the things we weren't supposed to know about This book was contained in a shoebox in the closet of my parent's bedroomThe Kama Sutra is commonly mismarketed as a sex guide or as pornography Although courtesans are mentioned it is not about the sex trade but includes discussion of marriage adultery transvestism homosexuality etc Most memorable from the childhood perusal of it is the long listing of positions for coitus many if not all of them named for various animals This was weirdly fascinating not for any erotic charge there isn't any but for the suggestions it implanted about how strange Indian culture must have beenI suppose Mom and Dad must have been disappointed also neither of them having evinced any particular interest in the s of medieval India
