Name of Kama Sutra Position:Â The Svastika
Position: The woman begins this position sitting erect on the floor. She then extends her left leg to the side as the man scoots his loins between her lovely legs. Wrapping her right leg around his waist, she pulls him in as close as she canÂ and crosses her ankles over each other. The man who is hopefully able to achieve penetration during all this, mirrors her position and clasps his ankles around her waist. The couple is then instructed to go at it with each other like two ballerina's at an all girls dance camp... well, okay, I made that last part up.
On a scale of 1 to 10 how would you rate position (1 as horrible, 10 as sexual nirvana)?Â
This is a solid 6
Did you have difficulty getting into the position?Â Yes, there can be a slight difficulty getting in this position if you haven't seen your toes, much less touched them in a few years. While not the most flexible chap in the world I was able to pull it off, but I wouldn't say it was easy.
Did you feel like a pretzel? Were you able to do the motions once in position?Â I felt more like a little teacup short and spout!
Any recommendations on getting either in or out of this position:Â Well, obviously you are going to have to begin to achieve penetration before any ankles can cross...
How long did you last in the position?Â 5 minutes
Enjoyment once you were in position (for the woman):Â No.
Enjoyment once you were in position (for the man):Â No.
Was the position comfortable? Were you able to relax?
Man:Â It was not comfortable at all and not exciting enough to keep my mind off of the discomfort...
Woman:Â She was not comfortable either.
Would you consider this to be an intimate position (Why or why not)?Â No, this is more of an “lets see if we can actually contort each other in this way and actually still achieve penetration” kind of position. It is more of a novelty, than an actual sex position in my opinion. There is just not enough movement and stimulation to get any real intimacy going!
Are you achy or sore after the fact?
Man:Â Hamstrings were perhaps a bit sore
Woman:Â Hamstrings sore... and a little rug burn on her rump.
What did the position feel like (both mentally and physically) in 50 words or less?Â Mentally, I was entertained for the first minute while we were contorting into position and then the final 4 minutes was spent thinking of a new position. Physically my loins were rather excited to achieve penetration as we moved into position. Unfortunately, once they realized that was the most exciting part of the position, they bailed on me!
Did she reach orgasm?Â No...
Did he reach orgasm?Â No...
Did it take longer than usual to reach orgasm?Â I think Jean Claude Van Dam would have a better chance at a hit movie in the coming years than I would have orgasming in this position!
Would you do this position again (why or why not)?Â No, I can't see me thinking, speaking, dreaming, talking, or even reminiscing about this position ever again. I like to have a lot of motion and action with my sex and this particular position leaves little room to none to even wiggle or shimmy in place, much less watch TV or even prepare your taxes.
Any suggestions to make the position more pleasurable: Tip her over on her back and pile drive her like a plunger in the backed up stall of an all-you-can-eat steakhouse in Arkansas... but don't put it to her that way!
