The Medusa



This position offers a lesson on both love and balance. It starts with the man squatting on the floor, using only his feet for balance. The woman then straddles him, allowing penetration. The movement is described as a back and forth rocking motion, similar to that of a hammock. There is also a variation on the movement, where the motion is described as rather stationary until the woman is ready to orgasm.

On a scale of 1 to 10 how would you rate position (1 as horrible, 10 as sexual nirvana)?

This position definitely receives bonus points for being such a different challenge. It is fun in itself, just to see if you can do it and for that we give it a 7.

Did you have difficulty getting into the position? Yes, this isn't a jump on each other and go at it type of position, you are going to have to coordinate to keep in the upright.

Did you feel like a pretzel? Were you able to do the motions once in position? No pretzel, but the motions take a bit of getting used to. I'd be surprised at anyone just trying this not falling down at least five times within the first 5 to 10 minutes... if you are really “rocking” that is.

Any recommendations on getting either in or out of this position: Absolutely... the man should start squatting on the floor, but have his hands behind him supporting himself, while the woman gets into position. I highly recommend the couple position their feet, so that they are several inches apart from each other. Meaning that the woman place her feet as far behind her partners feet as possible, towards his rear, which will help create a sort of platform from which to help each other balance.

How long did you last in the position? 10 minutes.

Enjoyment once you were in position (for the woman): She had a pretty good time. I can't remember the last time I saw her giggling (in a good way) so much in bed.

Enjoyment once you were in position (for the man): I have to admit that for a guy who loves getting down and dirty with the serious Kama Sutra positions that offer the deepest penetration and best action, this position was kind of fun. While I can't see really getting carried away or having a huge orgasm, the fun and challenge factor made it worth while.

Short Answers:

Was the position comfortable? Were you able to relax?

Man: This position is at least an 8 or 9 on the difficult meter, so you won't be doing any relaxing at any part of it. And if you're drunk when you decide to attempt this... faggitaboutit!

Woman: The woman has it a bit easier in the balance department, but she is still not in any position to relax.

Would you consider this to be an intimate position (Why or why not)? I would say that it is definitely intimate in communication, cooperation, and partnership. You really have to work as a team and help each other in order to get any joy out of this position. It is not intimate in its pure ecstasy and sexiness of most other Kama Sutra, but a change of pace is good!

Are you achy or sore after the fact?

Man: No... surprisingly this position left no repercussions for me.

Woman: No...

What did the position feel like (both mentally and physically) in 50 words or less? This position reminded me of what it might be like to try to have sex on the edge of a building. It is also similar to a cheap ride at a carnival. If it wasn't for the free peep show, including hands on T&A, it would be a rather boring ride mind you, but never-the-less it is a worthy dig.

Did she reach orgasm? …No, she was too busy having fun to get into that mode.

Did he reach orgasm? No, but I tried...

Did it take longer than usual to reach orgasm? Yes, I think this position could be a tough one to orgasm in, especially if you are used to deep penetration and wild pumping action. For anyone who suffers from premature explosion, this will probably be your ticket to rocket well over the 2 minute mark.

Would you do this position again (why or why not)? Yes, I think that with practice, this position would become more sexually pleasurable. It reminds you of how much fun sex can be and also challenges you with the obstacle of balance, which is overcomable, but at the expense of becoming a better partnership, which I feel is well worth the efforts.

Any suggestions to make the position more pleasurable: For those of you with an smidgen of S&M in your blood, I found that putting an element of danger in the mix, such as a table, or edge of a chair, heightens the stacks and can throw a little extra orgasm potential at the whole experience.
