Kama Sutra is considered to be the most ancient text of erotica, it can give us a wide range of knowledge that we seek from sex.
One significant challenge to the sex life of couples is lack of variety between the sheets (loss of novelty in the bedroom), thereby causing the sex life to fall off a cliff. There is every reason for you to up your a-game in the bedroom. There is never a bad time to add new sex positions to your bedroom collection and road – test the new sex positions with your partner.
The brain is very much involved in the excitement and satisfaction, therefore, it craves newness.
Vanessa Marin opined, “Anytime you introduce something fresh and novel into the bedroom, you set yourself up for a more stimulating experience and bigger finish,”
The original Kama Sutra is philosophical text offering musings on how to have a rewarding life and fruitful relationships; to the extent that it’s a sex manual, it’s mostly because it doesn’t shy away from the notion that sex is a healthy and normal part of life.
According to Kama Sutra, there are 64 types of sexual acts that one can pull during lovemaking. You will find instructions on how to perform each sex positions in this article.
1. Pretzel Dip:
This position allows for deep penetration without sacrificing eye contact and eye contact contributes to intimacy. In the Pretzel Dip, the female lies on their side. Facing her, the male straddles his bottom leg, keeping his torso upright. The female bends the knee of the top leg, while the male on top, thrusts into the female on the bottom, controlling the depth and tempo. If the raised leg makes the person on bottom feel unstable, they can use their top arm to help them stay in position, placing it in front or behind them.
2. Doggy style:
The man directs in this position but in this position, even the woman can drive. The female partner stands in doggy – style, bending her elbows and knees spreading them on sides, she holds her head straight. The male partner is behind her, kneeling down, he takes her by her waist, and penetrates not only moving his muscles, but his buttocks, by the beat of his movements.
3. Reversed Cowgirl position:
The woman is on top in this position and this position hits a different spot as you can feel the penetration in a totally different way.
Just as it sounds, reverse cowgirl is the girl-on-top position but reversed. As in, while in typical cowgirl, you may face your partner, but in reverse cowgirl, you face the opposite way (toward their feet). Most often, reverse cowgirl is done while seated or on your knees.
4. Spoon position:
Spooning refers to lying on your side with a partner (or more!) lying on their side and wrap your partner in a big hug , with your arm resting over their waist; mimicking spoons that seamlessly fit together.
You’ll be facing the same way so you won’t be able to see each other’s faces, but the position still allows you to get close to one another.
5. The Om:
This position is calm, relaxing and sensual. This is best for tantric sex. Rocking is the key when it comes to this intimate position, not thrusting.
The male sits cross legged (yoga style), the female sits on his lap facing him. She then wraps her legs around him and both hug each other for support.
Women’s Health opined, “This sex position is awesome because when you raise your legs, it narrows the vagina and helps target your G-spot.”
The female lies back with her legs resting on each of the male’s shoulder and when she raises her legs, it narrows the vagina. The male should rock the female in a side-to-side or up-and-down motion. That should bring the penis or strap-on into direct contact with your G-spot.
7. Magic Mountain:
It is quite similar to doggy style but requires the man to bend over the woman so that her back is against his chest. This position also allows for deep penetration, it stimulates the clitoris and it is perfect for baby making.
8. The Chairman:
This position leaves both your hands totally free for other endeavours, like kissing your partner’s neck and stimulating her nipples while at it.
He sits on the edge of the bed and she sits on him, facing away.
9.The Pinball Wizard:
This position gives the male easy access to stimulate her clitoris and massage the mons pubis.
She gets into a partial bridge position, with her weight resting on her shoulders. He enters her from a kneeling position.
10. Stand and deliver:
The female will stand against a wall with her legs slightly spread. The male partner will face her, grabbing the backs of her thighs, and carefully lifting her up (she should be high enough so that her legs rest against his hips). She can help him by pushing her back into the wall for leverage. She should put her hands on his shoulders or her arms around his neck for balance. He thrusts away, keeping his knees bent and pushing from his hips.
The female stands on one foot, she faces her male partner and wraps her other leg around his waist while he helps support her.
This position allows for quality face time and connecting. If you are a little more flexible, try putting the raised leg on his shoulder for even deeper penetration.
12. The Good Ex:
The female partner lays flat on the bed, head-to-toe with the male partner. Then, she crosses her partner’s right leg over her left and his left leg over her right. When she finds herself in the form of an “X”, she will have her male partner sit up and enter her at an angle.
The wheelbarrow is a sex position that allows penetrative sex from the back. The move requires some dexterity and core strength.
In this position, the male partner stands and holds the female partner’s legs. The female partner starts on the floor and uses her hands to balance in a plank-like position. Then the male partner lifts the female partner’s legs off the ground and holds them at waist level. The move is meant to resemble a wheelbarrow shape.
14. The Caboose:
The male partner will sit on the bed or floor with one leg extended and one leg bent. Once the male partner is in position, the female sits on his lap and put her thang down, flip it, and reverse it to keep the fun going even longer. This simple but effective position is perfect for clitoral stimulation and nipple play.
15. The seashell:
The female needs to lie on her back propped up on her elbows, and bring her legs up as high as they can go. Ideally near your ears, but make sure you only go as far as you’re comfortable to. The male partner then lies on top of her, with their his arms supporting his weight, and enters her.
16. Butter Churner:
The female lies on her back with her legs raised and folded over so that her ankles are on either side of her head, while the male partner squats and dips his penis in and out of her vagina.
The female partner splits her legs apart into a giant V shape and slowly, the male partner press down on them, stretching them forward. Now, the male partner leans forward as close to her as he can get. He puts his hands on the bed and let her split legs rest against the fold between his forearms and biceps. She can also hold onto her ankles or thighs (if she can reach), or wrap her arms around the male partner’s neck and pull him in closer.
18. Seated wheelbarrow:
The male partner sits on the bed while the female partner gets down on her front as the male partner enters her similar to the rear entry or doggie style. However, instead of letting the woman’s legs remain on the bed, the male partner lifts her by the pelvis and the woman grips the man around the waist with her legs. The sex position is hard, but not as hard as the standing wheelbarrow and can be used as a precursor to the standing variation.
19.The lazy man:
The male partner starts by ensuring his back was straight and comfortable against the bedroom wall by using a pillow, he then stretches out his legs straight. The female partner swill then sit on top of him with her two feet on the mattress. The female partner will gently lower herself on his erect penis, her breast in his face.
She will use her gentle touch to place herself in a position that she can move up and down with ease; the woman will be in full control. The male partner can also decide what thrusting speed he wants by directing her hips with his careful guided hands.
20. Wrapped lotus:
This is a very tough position to get into. Use pillows or wedges under your butt or knees to lean back against. In this position, two people sit facing one another with their legs and arms wrapped around each other.
The male partner will sit with his legs crossed on the bed (or wherever you’re having sex). While facing him, the female partner will sit as close as you can to them and wrap her legs around his torso. Then, the male partner should tuck his legs under you. After, wrap your arms around each other in a hug-like embrace and feel your chests melt together.
