The Kamasutra is the bible of sex positions. It was written in India in Sanskrit – historian’s think it first appeared between 400 BCE and 200CE! Originally it wasn’t just a sex positions manual but a whole way of life! However, if it’s sex positions you’re after then you’ve come to the right place!
The Kamasutra contains very detailed instructions to different sex positions and we’ve come up with handy little illustrations to help you get to grips with them!
1. “The erotic V”
This position demands certain acrobatic capacities!
The woman sits down on a table edge. The man stands before it and bends his legs so he’s in the best “entering” position.
Now she braces herself by putting her arms around his neck, pulls first the right, then the left leg up onto his shoulders. She leans back and he directs the thrusting by holding on to her bum!
2. The Fantastic Rocking Horse – kamasutra sex position
In the Rocking Horse sex position he sits cross-legged and leans back supporting himself with both arms behind him. She kneels over his lap hugging him with her thighs and lowers herself down. She can then determine the speed and depth of penetration.
It may be easier to maintain the Rocking Horse sex position for the man to lean against a wall or the edge of the bed and help her bounce up and down or just cop a feel while she does all the hard work.
3. The Catherine Wheel – kamasutra sex position
The Catherine Wheel sex position is more complicated than it looks.
First the man and the woman sit down opposite each other. Now she wraps her legs round his torso and he enters her, he then wraps one leg over her to hold her in place.
In order to hold the balance, she braces herself with both hands. He guides the movement propped up on his elbow.
4. The Glowing Triangle – kamasutra sex position
At first glance, the Glowing Triangle position reminds us of the classic missionary position – woman on her back and the man on top. However the trick with this position is that the man goes on all fours then the woman lifts her hips towards his penis so that he can penetrate her.
The man remains in this position while the woman does all the work… so actually not like the missionary at all.
5. The X-Rated sex position is all about control.
He lies faceup on the bed, she turns around and straddles him — so her back is toward him — she then lowers herself onto him.
She extends her legs back toward his shoulders, relaxing her torso onto the bed between his feet. With both her legs and his forming an X-shape, she starts to slide up and down.
She cam use his feet for added thrusting leverage.
6. The Nirvana – kamasutra sex position
The Nirvana sex position is a classic. When trying the Nirvana sex position, she lies on her back, stretches her legs out and holds onto the bedposts above her head. She keeps her legs together as he enters her with his thighs outside hers.
They move together and the pressure of her thighs intensifies the penetration effect and provides for a natural stimulation of the clitoris.
7. The Padlock – kamasutra sex position
She climbs onto a high piece of furniture (work disk, washing machine …), sits down on the edge and supports herself with the arms behind her. He stands before her and she wraps her legs firmly around his hips as he leans in to penetrate her in the Padlock sex position.
They can look into each other eyes as he uses grips her bottom to control the momentum. Time with the spin cycle for added “ohhhh”.
8. The Slide – kamasutra sex position
The man lies on his back, the woman lies on top with her legs together. While he penetrates her she begins to rub up and down his body.
The Slide sex position is pretty easy to master and he’ll be surprised at how much tighter your feel!
9. The Ape – kamasutra sex position
No idea why it’s called the ape sex position! You need to be more of a gymnast for this one.
The man lies on his back and pulls his knees up to his chest. She sits down backwards and slides his penis inside while propping herself up on his feet.
The more she shifts her weight on the legs, the easier it becomes for her partner… although, let’s face it, it’s never going to be easy!
Through the deep penetration, ‘the ape’ provides for especially sensual moments. However the woman must have adequate muscle power and balance for this position. She should reach down and grab her partners wrists to make movement simpler.
10. The Butterfly – kamasutra sex position
Another inappropriately named position. The key to the Butterfly sex position is the angle. She lies on her back on a suitable piece of furniture. He stands before her and she slips her legs over his shoulders.
She puts her arms and hands down so she can lift her hips up while he grabs her bottom to give her added lift. As long as he’s strong enough he can then move into her at the perfect angle.
