Name of Kama Sutra Position: Pressing, marking and scratching with the nails

Position: When a love is intense, the book of Kama Sutra recommends pressing your nails into your lover on either of these occasions.

  • During a first visit
  • At the time of the setting out on a long journey
  • At the return of a long journey
  • After an angry fight has been reconciled
  • If your lover is intoxicated.

Pressing with the Nails- When a person presses the chin, the breasts and the lower lip so softly that no mark is left, but only the hair on the body becomes erect from the touch of the nails.

Half Moon- A curved mark with the nails, which is impressed on the neck and the breast.

Tiger’s Nail- A curved mark in the form of a small line made on the breast.

Peacock’s Foot- When a curved mark is made on the breast by means of the five nails. This mark is made with the intension of praising the woman.

On a scale of 1 to 10 how would you rate position (1 as horrible, 10 as sexual nirvana)? This is an interesting little ditty… with a rating of 5, do to the love/hate relationship it had with my partner and I.

Did you have difficulty getting into the position? N/A

Did you feel like a pretzel? Were you able to do the motions once in position? N/A

Any recommendations on getting either in or out of this position: First I would say to let your lover know you are going to try something different, especially if you are going in for a “Tiger’s Nail.” If you want to keep it a surprise I would work up from “Pressing with the Nails.” Not everybody gets off on being clawed during lovemaking, so unless you want to start an all out “bitch fest” of clawing each other… take it easy. We men would lose this battle anyway.

How long did you last in the position? 5 minutes

Enjoyment once you were in position (for the woman): No

Enjoyment once you were in position (for the man): Yes

Short Answers:

Was the position comfortable? Were you able to relax?

Man: Yes

Woman: No, she was afraid I was going to leave a scar. But she didn’t understand that is part of the thing; to leave your mark for them to admire for weeks after the episode. It is supposed to remind them of your love for them. It does not always work this way folks, as in my case. It only left a mark that seemed to give her the right and reason to bitch several days after about the mark.

Would you consider this to be an intimate position (Why or why not)? I would say that it is very intimate if done in the throws of passion. It is definitely a symbol of lust, desire and extreme wanting. I myself have been scratched many times and did not even feel it. Woman appear to be a little more sensitive to that, as they are probably not used to it, so care has to be taken to keep it in the realm of intimacy unless they are into S&M, of which case scratch away!

Are you achy or sore after the fact?

Man: No

Woman: Yes

What did the position feel like (both mentally and physically) in 50 words or less? Well, it was definitely a turn-on for me, although it did feel feminine which was a big turn-off. There is a sense of control and desire when you are inflicting slight pain in the form of sexual delight.

Did she reach orgasm? …After I stopped scratching her!

Did he reach orgasm? Yes, while I was scratching her… go figure!

Did it take longer than usual to reach orgasm? It took a bit longer for her, but in some relationships that could be considered a good thing.

Would you do this position again (why or why not)? I do think that I will try to incorporate this into my sexual play again. I will definitely take it very slow and maybe just have a few light scratches here and there and build up to the actual “Tiger Nail.”

Any suggestions to make the position more pleasurable: You have to have a little bit of S&M in you to think this technique pleasurable. If either lover is not too keen on the idea from the beginning, it will be your job to teach them to like it, which is not always an easy task to embark upon.
