A couple of thousand years or so ago, a man called Vatsyayana Mullanaga got it into his head to compile a book of all the sex tips he could find in his homeland of India. This tome was called the ''Kama Sutra'' (lit: ''Pleasure Sayings'') and even today it is a byword for sexuality around the world. Yet, like so many classic literary works, [[MainstreamObscurity it's one of those famous works that a lot of people have heard of, but few have bothered to read (in full)]]. PopCulturalOsmosis has reduced it to supposedly being nothing but a pornographic book with a lot of naughty pictures. In reality there is an entire philosophy behind the sexual acts described in the book. Another UrbanLegend claims it is a religious work, which isn't true either, although some cultures may regard sex as an act of worship.
