With that in mind, let us have a look at some of the best recommended sexual positions of the Kama Sutra! A sex swing might be the ideal answer to working your way through the joys of the Kama Sutra’s best.
The Kama Sutra placed significant importance on the value of enjoyable and meaningful sexual practices. There are lots of sexual positions – what is most commonly known by many as the ‘Kama Sutra’. It wasn’t only Ancient India that offered instructions for better sex – but also in Ancient China with Taoist sexual practices.
Position of Indrani
With this position, the woman lies on her back, relaxed. She raises her legs as high as they will go – for very flexible women this means that her thighs will be resting on her stomach. This position, the text cautioned, is not for everyone and might need practice to get it right.
This position is a great one as it allows the man to deeply penetrate the woman, which feels great for him, and – unlike many other missionary-based positions – will give her a good chance of enjoying a blended orgasm.
This is a gorgeous and playful female on-top position, and it is an easy and straightforward position. The man lies on his back with his legs together. His lover straddles him (not facing him) whilst supporting her weight with her hands, which should rest near the knees (or shins) of her lover. This position is commonly known today as ‘reverse cowgirl’ and this is a firm favorite that has stood the test of time!
With the pressed position, the woman again lies on her back. The man lifts and holds her feet and legs up by his chest, using her body to leverage his own movements.
This position is fantastic for both men and women. The angle of the woman’s hips in the pressed position means that he will be rubbing against the frontal vaginal wall, stroking the G spot with each thrust. This is a classic move that offers deep penetration.
Congress of a Cow
This position, once described, will be easily recognized. The woman goes on hands and feet, or hands and knees in front of the man, while he enters her from behind. It is simply what is known now as doggy style! Again, as mentioned above, references to ‘cows’ are not as demeaning as they might have taken to be by Western minds, given the religious importance of cows to Hinduism.
This position, despite its name, does not refer to being bored in any way, shape, or form ! With this position, the woman once again lies on her back, and spreads her legs as wide apart as possible, with the man holding her legs wide.
This position is probably so named because the act of lifting and spreading her legs causes everything to open up for him, allowing deep penetration. This is one of the most recommended sexual positions as it gives great pleasure to both partners. It is also very arousing because the woman surrenders herself completely and offers her sexual soul to her lover.
More than Just Sex
It must be stressed that the Kama Sutra is far more than a sex-guide. While it certainly does give a great deal of information and detail about sexual practices, it also recommends much else to do with living well and being a good member of society.
Women are treated as equals and as deserving of sexual satisfaction as men are, and there are many lists within the work detailing other subjects that each person, be it a woman (married or virginal maid) or a young man-about-town, should study in order to be a well-rounded and healthy person: these include singing, painting, tattooing, cooking, interior design and so much else.
