Kamasutra – what’s that all about?

With terms like “lotus” or “buzzing monkey” many of us directly think of yoga postures. These are actually terms for sex positions that can make sex particularly exciting. The Indian sex bible Kamasutra, which translates as “teachings on desire” from Sanskrit, is entirely devoted to lust.

With terms like “lotus” or “buzzing monkey” many of us directly think of yoga postures. These are actually terms for sex positions that can make sex particularly exciting. Kamasutra was written by Vatsyayana Mallanaga 200 to 300 years after Christ. He describes lust as one of the three goals in life. What follows is a meticulous guide for lovers and a description of the famous 729 different positions, which besides sexual fulfillment, are all about getting to know each other’s bodies better.

It doesn’t only include positions that call for extreme flexibility in bed or bendiness on the kitchen table. Positions similar to missionaries or spoons can also be found in the Kamasutra and serve as a reminder that the best sex doesn’t have to be too complicated.

A simple kamasutra position where a woman can feel like a goddess is the sphinx. Lying on her stomach, she leans on her forearms and bends one leg. Her partner lies on her and also can support himself with her help of her arms. While she pushes her bottom slightly upwards and so her back hollows, he can penetrate her from behind. Of course, it also works between two men and also with sex toys.
