Chapter 2: Foreplay for Sure
All the classic love guides, the Kama Sutra, the Ananga Ranga, and the Perfumed Garden, stress the importance of kissing. Kisses are part of the whole lovemaking picture. They’re included before intercourse, during intercourse, and after intercourse.
Sheikh Nafzawi, author of the 16th century Perfumed Garden, deemed kissing so vital, that “no kind of position or movement procures the full pleasure,” without it.
“. . . Add teasing motions with the Throbbing Kiss. Gently suck her bottom lip into your mouth and feel it vibrate seductively against yours. Your top lips remain still . . .”
Chapter 3: The Sensual Nutrition of Massage
Massage is an extraordinary gift to give each other. When you are touching and being touched your body secretes endorphins and oxytocin. The powerful chemicals make you feel good and at the same time build the desire for more of that marvellous holding and stroking . . . Through your touch you can offer relaxation, stimulation, arousal, and healing–separately or in imaginative combinations.
“. . . Erotic massage is all about arousal, so it can often become increasingly sexual as you get farther into it. For women e specially, Erotic Massage helps them get out of their heads and intro their bodies . . . With Erotic Massage you can use not only your hands but also your tongue, lips, hair, or other exotic aids . . .”
Chapter 4: Erotic Inflamers
Like many other love guides, the Kama Sutra suggests that lovemaking is a delightful battleground: a place where men and women test their metal and show their powers of persuasion and passion. In lusty skirmishes, as equals with complementary skills, you brandish your finely honed weapons, like scratches, nips, and love taps, to spur each other into love’s delirium, remembering always, always to consider your partner’s desires.
“. . . To make the Tiger’s Claw, curve your fingers and spread them apart a little. Backs, buttocks, breasts, and necks are great spot for this scratch . . . ”
Chapter 6: Introducing Kama Sutra Positions
Man on Top
When the Kama Sutra was written, men were identified with the sky, the god Shiva, the power of thought. Women were connected to the earth, the goddess Shakti, the power of creative life energy. Together they made a union that reflected the construction of the cosmos. So, it was deemed part of the natural order that during lovemaking men should be on top most of the time.
That’s why almost all the Kama Sutra positions (26 out of 34), whether Face To Face or Rear Entry, are Man On Top poses.
“. . . Widely Opened is another position that invites maximum penetration. She lies back with her knees bent and her feet flat on the bed. Then she raises her lower body in a pelvic lift. It opens her canal widely. If she isn’t strong enough to hold this pose comfortable, try it with lots of pillows . . .”
