Like all things which keep us deliciously intrigued, no one can quite agree on the facts surrounding the Kama Sutra. We know it was compiled between the first and fourth century by an elderly Indian sage called Mallanaga Vatsyayana, but little is known of him. Some historians swear he was celibate; others say after studying ancient texts, he put the advice into practice and went for it!
The Kama Sutra is basically a guide to live and love. It’s addressed to men, but Vatsyayana heartily recommends young women also flip through it before marriage (with their fiancé’s consent, of course.) At the time the Kama Sutra was written, there was no shame associated with sex – Hindus thought sex wasn’t just natural and necessary, but sacred. A veritable sexfest apparently! (Time machine, anyone?)
The following positions are original Kama Sutra staples. Some of them look ridiculously easy, others impossibly difficult. But don’t be fooled. A lot of what’s actually happening can’t be seen and the acrobatic positions aren’t designed for traditional thrusting. All is not as it seems!
According to the Kama Sutra, “When a man and woman lie down in an inverted order, with the head of one toward the feet of the other, and carry on this congress, it is called the congress of a crow.”
One of three secret positions of the Kama Sutra noted for maximum pleasure, the Black Bee is one wild ride. Click here to for our trick to make it even hotter.
A lift of her hips and a curve of her back means constant clitoral contact – and one very happy girlfriend!

This erotic Kama Sutra position is satisfyingly show-off, but also relatively simple. Send each other into erotic overdrive – in comfort!
Animalistic, primitive, and positioned to hit super-sensitive spots, this one puts him in charge of her pleasure.
In the Half-Pressed Position he can enter her deeply, but her foot on his chest forces him to keep his distance – creating a sexy hint of tension.
The Kama Sutra Pressed Position is a classic move excellent for the G-spot orgasm, multiple orgasms, heavier female partners, or men with a smaller than average penis.
The Rising Position enables deep thrusting in a position that is comfortable for both of you — great for building erotic tension.
Although he’s on top, she’s the one making the moves in this Kama Sutra classic. If he’s still on the lookout for that g-spot, “Splitting of a Bamboo” will improve his odds of finding it.
A perfect position for spontaneous sex — and great for feeding those naughty, anonymous stranger fantasies.
