The Lotus



Name of Kama Sutra Position: The Lotus

Getting into the position: Facing the woman in a seated position, the man grasps her ankles and fastens them like a chain behind his neck. She then grips her toes as they make love.

On a scale of 1 to 10 how would you rate position (1 as horrible, 10 as sexual nirvana)? 
I give this position a mediocre 5.

Did you have difficulty getting into the position? 
Slight difficulty

Did you feel like a pretzel? Were you able to do the motions once in position?
I did not feel like a pretzel and I am not really certain what the motions are supposed to be for this one. But while she's holding her toes with her legs fastened around my neck, there just isnÕt much room for movement.

Any recommendations on getting either in or out of this position?
Just like putting on your pants Ñ do it one leg at a time.

How long did you last in the position?
Five minutes of swaying and bobbling, until we finally looked at each other with the "screw this" expression and we moved on to something else.

Enjoyment once you were in position (for the woman): She was not particularly impressed with it.
Enjoyment once you were in position (for the man): Not too impressed either.

Short Answers:

Was the position comfortable? Were you able to relax?
Yes, but awkward
Woman: No É no É no!

Would you consider this to be an intimate position (why or why not)?
I would say no to this, even though you are up close and face to face. There is something about this position that feels entrapping, and not in the kinky S&M way, but more like the "get me the heck out of this position" way!

Are you achy or sore after the fact?
Woman: No

What did the position feel like (both mentally and physically) in 50 words or less? 
It felt like I was in a wrestling match with my partner and she was kicking my butt. Then, just as I thought it was over and I was going to get lucky, my manhood turned against me and lost all zest for the act. My zest was gone, too.

Did she reach orgasm? No
Did he reach orgasm? Not that I know of.

Did it take longer than usual to reach orgasm? N/A

Would you do this position again (why or why not)? 
No, I think I will pass on this one. I like to be free to move and experience all the sensations of my partner without being restricted.

Any suggestions to make the position more pleasurable?
I have seen this position featured in different ways. A lot of times it is shown with the woman having her legs around the guyÕs waist, which is of course very simple, but nothing too out of the ordinary. There might be a good way to do the original version with the legs around the neck, but I invite any of you out there to enlighten me, because I sure couldnÕt figure it out!
