KAMA SUTRA SEX POSITIONS

Like all things which keep us deliciously intrigued, no one can quite agree on the facts surrounding the Kama Sutra. We know it was compiled between the first and fourth century by an elderly Indian sage called Mallanaga Vatsyayana, but little is known of him. Some historians swear he was celibate; others say after studying ancient texts, he put the advice into practice and went for it!

The Kama Sutra is basically a guide to live and love. It’s addressed to men, but Vatsyayana heartily recommends young women also flip through it before marriage (with their fiancé’s consent, of course.) At the time the Kama Sutra was written, there was no shame associated with sex – Hindus thought sex wasn’t just natural and necessary, but sacred. A veritable sexfest apparently! (Time machine, anyone?)

The following positions are original Kama Sutra staples. Some of them look ridiculously easy, others impossibly difficult. But don’t be fooled. A lot of what’s actually happening can’t be seen and the acrobatic positions aren’t designed for traditional thrusting. All is not as it seems!
