There’s a reason that the Kama Sutra has been the go-to sex position guide for thousands of years. If you’re ready to spice up your sex life, try these 5 hot sex positions you’ll both love – or love trying!
Much like the practice of Yoga, the Kama Sutra is hugely misunderstood around the world. The Kama Sutra is an ancient book of Love; it is not just a book of sex positions. There are 64 different positions that can be assumed during loving making and are actually that’s just a small part of the entire book.
In Hindu cosmology, the process of creation emerged from primordial chaos and a frenzied sensuality. The idea is our world was created as an amorous act between the gods and goddesses; making the formation of the universe both sacred and erotic.
Because making love is a sacred act, it is very important for both individuals to respect and fully enjoy each other’s company as though you are in the presence of a god or goddess.
Striving to please your lover in every way makes the union equal, and as both partners are synchronized you’ll both achieve a state of ecstasy at the same time. In that single moment of joint orgasmic liberation you are the physical manifestation of Shiva and Shakti, the masculine and feminine energy that make up our cosmos. How beautiful is that?
While you ponder on these spiritual ideas, here are five sensuous love positions from the Kama Sutra for you to try with your partner.
For this position, the woman lies on her back but allows her weight to shift slightly onto one hip. She then lifts the leg from the side that is bearing no weight into the air. Her lover straddles the leg left on the bed and gently places the leg that is in the air onto his shoulders. This position allows the man to control the rhythm and depth of penetration. He can also choose to bite and kiss the ankle of the leg rested on his shoulders for added eroticism. The woman can choose to lie back and rest her hands on his hips, bed sheets or find another use for them?
Lying back on the bed and the woman’s legs should come to her chest (like child’s pose) with her feet in the air. Her lover then supports his weight on his arms and penetrates her from the top. If you wish to change the angle of the yoni (vagina) and the penetration, place a pillow under her buttocks. The pillow also eases the pressure placed on her body in case his arms become tired. She can choose to rest her ankles on his shoulders to deepen the penetration.
3. THE TIGRESS
Another gorgeous and playful female on-top position, it is reasonably easy to achieve. The man lies on the bed, face-up and with his legs together. His lover straddles him and allows the lingam (penis) to penetrate the yoni (vagina). The woman lies back and steadies her weight with her arms, which should rest near the knees (or shins) of her lover. To stimulate the clitoris during intercourse the man can place his hands on her thighs and encourage a slightly more vigorous rocking motion. This position may also be done with the female being reversed, her lover may hold her buttocks as she leans back with her hands upon his chest.
2. THE LOTUS
Sitting on a table, or perhaps a washing machine, the woman leans back and awaits penetration. Her lover approaches her from the front and pulls her gently toward him, raising her buttocks slightly off the high surface. Locking her legs around his buttock or lower back depending on the length of her legs, she locks her feet together as he penetrates her. The man may choose to nibble and kiss her breasts as she pulls his hair. Or the man may choose to sit on the edge of the bed and his lover may sit on top of him and wrap her legs around his back, from there he can embrace her like a padlock, this is a beautifully intimate position and one of my favorites, if you feel cold, wrap a big blanket around the both of you. The woman may lean her head back as they rock together whilst her lover kisses her breasts.
The woman has an unusual amount of room to express her lust in this variation on the ordinary man-on-top position. Because his hips are high in the air rather than pinning her to the bed, she’s free to thrust, grind, and wiggle as much as she wants.
