The video that explains why the Kamasutra is not just about sex

It’s one of the world’s earliest books on sex — but not actually that sexy.

This video by Vox.com takes a deeper look at the Kamasutra, its history, and how it got the reputation it has today.

Popularized by British "orientalist" Richard Francis Burton, the book has spread across cultures and continents.

While people tend to focus on the chapters involving sex positions, the rest of the seven-part treatise is a fascinating look at ancient Indian power structures, gender roles, and yes -- pleasure.
