sex poses

The Kama Sutra is an ancient Indian Hindu text widely considered to be the standard work on human sexual behavior in Sanskrit literature written by Vatsyayana to teach abstainment of sex and lead prosperous, healthy family life.

Original Kama Sutra is not referred, the current versions and interpretations only focus about sex positions. These sex positions practiced by couples revealed that its adds new variety in their sexlife. A portion of the work consists of practical advice on sexual intercourse, which is overtly used worldwide. It is largely in prose, with many inserted anustubh poetry verses. “Kāma” which is one of the four goals of Hindu life, means desire including sexual desire the latter being the subject of the textbook, and “sūtra” literally means a thread or line that holds things together, and more metaphorically refers to an aphorism (or line, rule, formula), or a collection of such aphorisms in the form of a manual. Contrary to popular perception, especially in the western world, Kama sutra is not exclusively a sex manual; it presents itself as a guide to a virtuous and gracious living that discusses the nature of love, family life and other aspects pertaining to pleasure oriented faculties of human life. Kama Sutra, in parts of the world, is presumed or depicted as a synonym for creative sexual positions; in reality, only 20% of Kama Sutra is about sexual positions.

The majority of the book is non-erotic, notes Jacob Levy, is about the philosophy and theory of love, what triggers desire, what sustains it, how and when it is good or bad, which can be life changing in person not sexually.

1/5th part of 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!

“The erotic V” sex position

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.

The Catherine Wheel sex position

what is healthise The Catherine Wheel 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.

At first glance Sex Position

What is healthise At first glance 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.

The X-Rated sex position

what is healthise The X-Rated sex position

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 cam use his feet for added thrusting leverage.

The Nirvana 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.

The Padlock Sex Position

The Slide sex position is pretty easy to master and he’ll be surprised at how much tighter your feel!

The Ape 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 a 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.

The Butterfly sex position

what is healthise butterfly 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.

The Ascent to Desire sex position

He stands with feet firmly on the ground hip width apart, knees slightly bent. She stands before him. As he lifts her onto him, she wraps her legs around his hips.

It may be useful to start off sitting on the bed and then turn round once lifted so she can put her feet down and help support the lift with the edge of the bed.

The weight should help with deep penetration as she moves up and down.

The Balancing Act sex position

what is healthise balancing act sex position

The woman get her leg over one of the man’s shoulders. The man straddles her other thigh and enters her using his hands to support her elivated leg and support himself. As her hands are free she can show her clitoris a little self-love or stroke his penis as he moves in and out.

The Curled Angel (aka Anjou-style) sex position

what is healthise The Curled Angel Anjou style sex position

The woman curls up on her side, knees drawn up and the man spoons her from behind. Penetration is fairly easy from his position and the man can rach around to play her breasts or clit.

Especially to recommend for pregnant women, this can be adapted so that she doesn’t have to bring her knees up quite so far and thus avoids squishing her “bump”.

  • The Bridge sex position

Ohhh we love this one. Not that we’ve ever tried The Bridge sex position because we aren’t dating Olympic gymnasts (or Russell Brand)… it just that the bridge sex position looks so impressive.

Try only if your man is super flexible and strong. He makes a bridge and she straddles him, sitting down onto his penis. Taking the weight on her feet she then moves up and down on top of him.

Don’t stay like this too long or he may pass out with so much blood rushing to his head!

  • The Clip sex position

The man lies on his back with legs closed. She sits down on him and once he’s safely inside she bends backwards and supports herself with her hands.

Once in the Clip sex position she can then make rhythmic movements while he stimulates her clitoris (and enjoys the view).

  • The Close-up sex position

A variation on simple spooning and the Curled Angel position. The close-up sex position is slightly more difficult to master.

Lying on their sides the man spoons the woman from behind but this time she wraps her legs round the outside of his.

They can both reach the clit for a good pre-penetration play or he can concentrate on her boobs while she pleases herself.

  • The Double Decker sex position

The Double Decker sex position is a good transition position as it’s easy for the man to roll the woman into a new position.

  • The Seduction sex position

The Seduction sex position takes its name from the wanton “take me now” position that they woman adopts to kick things off. As seductions go this one is pretty obvious…

She starts off on her knees and then leans back – ankles under her bum, arms abover her head.

Kneeling over her, the man leans over her to penetrate so that his legs are straight out behind him and his weight is supported on his forearms.

He can then use circular motions or thrusts to pleasure her.

She can reach her clit or his balls and penis and guides the depth and pace of penetration with his help.

The Crouching Tiger sex position takes some thigh power but with a little help from the man this one is fairly easy to achieve.

  • The Hero sex position

For the Hero sex position, the woman lies on her back pulling her knees up to her chest, feet extending up towards the ceiling.

The man kneels down thighs under her bum so she can rest on him as he enters her. He can use his free hands to press her thighs back towards her chest to aid penetration.

  • The Dolphin sex position

Another one for the acrobats and yoga enthusiasts amongst us – this is the Dolphin sex position.

In the dolphin the woman makes a bridge by pushing her thighs and hips towards the ceiling while supporting herself on her shoulders and keeping her head and neck on the floor.

The man slots himself between her knees and helps her to keep her hips off the ground. All the while he penetrates her with soft movements.

The more adventurous version involves the man lifting the womans hips even higher so that her feet are clear off the ground.

Don’t hold this too long. All that blood to the head can lead to blackouts!

  • The Frog sex position

The Frog sex position starts with the man sitting on the edge of the bed, the feet on the ground. The woman squats before him on the edge of the bed with her back to him (like a little frog).

For the Reclining Lotus sex position, a little yoga practice goes a long way…

The woman lies on her back, legs crossed in the “lotus” position (the opposite foot on top of the opposite knee). The man lies between her legs and penetrates from above.

So that the woman doesn’t have to carry his entire weight, it’s recommended that the man braces himself on his arms.

A pillow under the woman’s hips can change the penetration angle. Her hands are free to wander or to hold on to her partner.

  • The Lustful Leg sex position

Again, Olympic standard flexibility is a basic requirement for this Lustful Leg sex position.

The couple start approximately shoulder width apart facing each other. The woman places one leg up onto the bed.

This takes some practice to get right… we’re not sure it’s worth the effort.

  • The Rock’n Roller sex position

We’re fairly sure this isn’t the original name of this position… but the Rock’n Roller sex position sounds great.

He kneels in front of her and enters her, taking his weight on his hands, on either side of her shoulders. As this is a position for deep penetration, it should only be tried when sufficiently lubricated to avoid any pain for the woman.
