Mallana-ga Va-tsya-yana was the Hinud philosopher credited with writing the original work in the sixth century AD. In his own words, 'a person acquainted with the true principles of science, who preserves his Dharma (virtue or religious merit) , his Artha (worldly wealth) and his Kama (pleasure or sensual gratification), and who has regard to the customs of the people, is sure to obtain mastery over his senses. In short, an intelligent and knowing person attending to Dharma and Artha and also to Kama, without becoming the slave of his passions, will obtain success in everything he may do.'

Captain Sir Richard Francis Burton (1821-1890) was an English explorer, translator, writer, soldier, orientalist, ethnologist, spy, linguist, poet, fencer and diplomat. His best-known achievements include travelling in disguise to Mecca, an unexpurgated translation of 'One Thousand and One Nights',and bringing the Kama Sutra to publication in English - thereby introducing the world to what is now regarded as the standard work on human sexual behavior. Following a career in the army of the East India Company serving in India (and later briefly, in the Crimean War), he was engaged by the Royal Geographical Society to explore the east coast of Africa and led the expedition guided by the locals that discovered Lake Tanganyika. In later life he served as British Consul in Fernando Po, Santos, Damascus and finally, Trieste. He was a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and was awarded a knighthood in 1886.
