The chapter presents an overview of the importance of sexuality in, and its points of intersection with, Hindu religion, historically and in the contemporary world. Among the themes discussed are eroticism as religious imagery and role-play, ascetic ideals of chastity, contrasts between the treatment of sexuality in religious law and secular manuals of love, sacral and ritulized sexuality, sexual minorities and the ‘third sex’ (particularly the hijṛā community), and the influence of colonization and missionary activity on modern Hindu views on sexuality.
