In ancient times, reading and writing were not universal skills. Preserving and perpetuating knowledge was done through oral tradition. So Vatsyayana wrote in sutras.
A sutra is a highly condensed verse meant to be memorized. Which is why the Kama Sutra is more a book of aphorisms than one of lengthy prose, elaborate descriptions, and step-by-step techniques. To extract the true value of the sayings, one has to understand the Kama Sutra History, the Kama Sutra Sex Positive customs, and the practices of the times.
To quote the original text...
"Kama is the enjoyment of the appropriate objects by the five senses of hearing, feeling, seeing, tasting, and smelling assisted by the mind together with the soul."
The love guide goes on by saying "Kama is as necessary for existence and well-being of the body as food, and consequently equally required."
Of course, those of us who practice Kama Sutra Tantra in a Kama Sutra Sex Positive culture heartily endorse such truths.
