Kamasutra sex positions to spice up your sex life!
Lotus bloom: This is a position which ensure that you and your partner are as close to each other as possible. In the lotus bloom position the man sits with his legs either straight out in front of him or bent at the knees. And the woman sits on top of the man’s lap with her chest facing the man with her legs wrapped around the man’s bottoms. The man can use his hands to support himself while the woman can hold on to the man and go along for the ride. This position allows you to simply go with the flow and feel oh-so-sexy. The lotus bloom position allows the man access to all the pleasure points on the woman’s body (like the back, neck, breasts and nape of the neck) and helps in deeper penetration. As an added bonus, if your woman likes to be held close during the act, this position is for you.
The kneel: In this position the man kneels, while the woman – who kneels facing him—sits on him with her legs wrapped around his waist and her arms around his neck. She may choose to support her body with her feet on the ground. The man can then penetrate deeper as he moves up and down. Also, since he is kneeling, he will be more in control of the depth of his penetration. This position allows the man to kiss the woman all over the erogenous zones of her upper body, while the woman can play with her man’s hair and claw his back sensuously. The kneel allows for controlled penetration, so as the pleasure quotient increases, the man can choose to go deeper or make his woman scream for more.
Butterfly sex position: In this position the woman lies on her back on a table. The man steps in between her feet and raises her hips with his hands (you could add pillows for that added lift). This position raises the raunchy quotient of your sex life, ensuring better penetration and helps the sperms stay in the vagina.
Magic Mountain: This pose is just like the doggy style, but has the man bending over the woman, so that her back is against his chest. You can make the sex even more pleasurable by hugging as you have sex. Here, the woman is bent over at the waist, and can use pillows beneath her to stabilise her upper body. You can reduce the number of pillows to increase the bend in the woman’s waist helping her pelvis tilt even more. This pose allows for deep penetration, hits the G spot and stimulates the clitoris and is perfect for baby making.
Glowing-triangle-position: This pose is an offshoot of the missionary position. Here the man is on top with the woman below, the difference being that the man is on all fours with his legs extended out. The woman’s pelvis is raised (you can use a pillow for that added lift) and wrapped around the man. This position helps in increasing the depth of the penetration and helps tilt the woman’s pelvis upwards. The best part about this position is that the man need not move. The woman can do all the work.
The lustful leg position: This sex position is definitely for when you and your partner if you’re feeling especially flexible. In this position the man and the woman stand face to face. Then the woman lifts her leg and places it on the man’s shoulder. The man then wraps his hands around the woman’s waist and inserts his penis into her vagina. Now both the partners can move and the man can guide the depth of his penetration by pulling the woman closer to him. This position allows very deep penetration. The best part is that the man’s penis will rub against the front wall of the woman’s vagina and can stimulate her G-spot.
The Peg: This position is for all the adventurous couples out there and it’s sure to spice up your sex life. To do this position the man should lie on his side. The woman lies next to him with her legs facing his head. Now she bends her legs at the knees and sandwiches his legs. Now is when the man penetrates the woman and using his elbow can support his body. He now has his hand free to touch the woman on her back, breasts, anus and lower back. Both the partners can move simultaneously in this position. On penetration the woman is stimulated along the back wall of her vagina. To intensify things, the woman can choose to stimulate her clitoris as well. The man has the pleasure of stoking the woman’s bottoms and anus. To take things up a notch the man can even stimulate the anus and make the woman scream with pleasure.
The Glowing Juniper: This is a great position for both men and women. To do this, the woman lies on her back with her legs outstretched and spread open. The man slides in between her legs and stretches out his legs on either side of the woman’s body. He then places his hands just below her waist and lifts up her lower body. He then penetrates her. The woman can then bend her knees a bit to help the man move. An extremely sensual pose, the glowing juniper allows the man to caress and kiss the woman’s body. He can also enjoy watching the woman in her most pleasured state.
