What is the Kama Sutra?

The Kama Sutra is an ancient Indian text that was written to help teach men on how to have a happy marriage.

A lot of people think that it’s just about sex, but that’s not strictly true. The Kama Sutra is made up of seven sections but only the second, called ‘On Sexual Union’, details different sexual positions.

This part of it is illustrated with drawings to show couples different ways of having sex.

Despite it being centuries old, The Kama Sutra is still just as fun to try today. Some of the positions are a little more challenging than others, but all are designed to give both of you pleasure.

We’ve taken some of the most popular Kama Sutra positions from this ancient book to help you spice up your love life.
