In this simple face to face position, you lie on your sides close together. This creates an intimate mood of warmth and tenderness. Both lovers start with their legs outstretched. The woman rests her uppermost leg on top of her man’s leg, bending it a little to allow him into her. He them pulls her toward him by grasping her thigh.
From The Perfumed Garden:
EIGHTEENTH MANNER (“Love’s Fusion”) – While the woman is lying on her right side, extend yourself on your left side; your left leg remains extended, and you raise your right one until it is up to her flank, when you lay her upper leg upon your side. Thus, her uppermost leg serves the woman as a support for her back. After having introduced your member you move as you please, and she responds to your action as she pleases.
If you’re looking for a good position to make sex last longer, take this page from the Kamasutra.
Because he can’t move as easily, being on his side delays the guy’s arousal. Having limited motion means the man won’t be able to get carried away or climax too quickly.
Not only will the sex last longer but you’ll also be able to communicate what feels good face-to-face while both being in control.
