Koka Shastra : Being the Ratirahasya of Kokkoka and Other Medieval Indian Writings on Love

The Koka Shastra is to medieval literature whar The Kama Sutra was to ancient. This translation, which preserves the flavor of joy in the original, exposes the reader to a culture which accepted sexuality and its exploration as part of the good life. The Indian works describe the forms of love-play, the multifarious postures for intercourse, and the ways of satisfying a woman's passions. And the imaginative reader will have to admit that many Indian love practices - the signs of satisfaction and dissatisfaction, the forms of desire, the variety of ways in which satisfaction can be achieved -- have an immediate relevance for any person who wants to heighten the ways as well as the sense of joy in their lives.
