He is a beautiful Hindu youth who rides an elephant or a parrot (yes, a parrot) and has a Cupid-like bow made of sugar cane.
Accompanied by his sexy consort Rati, he promotes the arts of sexual love in all its many forms.
There are big spiritual blessings to be gained from a bit of sex — or even a lot. Unlike other, more stuffy, religions, the Hindu concept of Kama (love) includes the physical side too.
Pretty much anything goes as Kama is a very open-minded God of Desire. It’s just as well we don’t all desire the same things.
