One of the most fascinating times you can have in India is to become a
student of anthropology and search for art and life inspired by the famous
treatise on sex (actually there are many such works, Kamasutra is but the
most famous of them). As a tourist, you can discover these artifacts at almost
every nook and corner of India -- you just have to be patient and look for it!
During our own travels, when we start studying or photographing obscure
erotic art, we have received enthusiastic response from passers by, who will
tell us about more such yet undiscovered treasures somewhere else. Our large
collections of photographs on Erotic Arts of India were hence collected.
