Face to Face Positions: Missionary (legs over shoulders variation)
Face to face positions with similar body parts facing or touching (mouths together, hearts toward each other, eyes gazing) encourage emotional union and circulation of hot sexual energy. . . Use face to face positions when you want to open your hearts to deep connection. . . rather than continue to build to a higher peak of excitement.
In this position with her legs over your shoulders she presents herself fully ripe and open for maximum penetration. It’s highly effective when the lingam (penis) is small and the yoni (vagina) is large.
Opposites Positions: The Deer
Postures that combine opposites (rear entry, head to feet) build erotic excitement and generate a high sexual charge rapidly. All opposite positions are useful for any man with difficulty getting and maintaining an erection because they are so arousing. Avoid them if you ejaculate prematurely.
“If the lady, eager for love, goes on all fours, lays breasts, arms and forehead to the carpet, raising her buttocks high, and you guide your penis into her yoni humping her back like a doe, and you enjoy her from behind, rutting as though you’d lost all human nature…”Love Teachings of Kama Sutra, by Vatsyayana, translated by Indra Sinha
Sideways Positions: Spoons
Sideways positions are generally well suited to circulating and sharing sexual energy. They tend to be gentler, slower, and quieter. Although perhaps less stimulating than other positions, they can be powerfully emotional….
The wonderful spoons posture allows you to rest after an exhausting dance of love. . . Intercourse while in the spoons position is perfect when the man is larger than the woman, as penetration is not as deep and thrusting not as fierce. It is especially suited for lovemaking during pregnancy as there is no weight or pressure upon the new life growing in the lady’s womb. If either partner is recovering from injury, illness or exhaustion, this posture is also ideal.”
Standing Positions: Climbing the Tree
Standing positions are not usually held for long periods of time because of the physical strength required. They are ideal for lovemaking “quickies”….
“You catch one of her knees firmly in your hand and stand making love with her while her hands explore and caress your body.” Love Teachings of Kama Sutra, by Vatsyayana, translated by Indra Sinha
