Two thousand years before THE JOY OF SEX, the KAMA SUTRA detailed every aspect of the lovers' experience. Here is the fascinating story of this remarkable text.
Its 36 chapters detail the complete range of erotic experience from formulas for aphrodisiacs to foreplay and explicit details of intercourse. More than 2,000 years after a forgotten Hindu high priest sat down to compile all that was written about sex and sensuality, the Kama Sutra continues to inspire delight and spark controversy.
Take an unblinking look at one of the most remarkable and, to some, notorious works ever written. This program traces not only the details of the book itself such as the identity of the author and how it eventually came to the attention of the Western World but also explores the culture that gave rise to it. Visit an incredible temple-town a few hours drive from Delhi decorated in erotic sculptures that celebrate the sexual positions of the Kama Sutra, and which Mahatma Gandhi wanted to destroy. And meet with historians and leading thinkers including bestselling author Deepak Chopra who offer insight into the place of the Kama Sutra in Indian culture and history.
