Good health and a quality sex life really do go hand in hand. Take care of yourself from a health standpoint and you’ll definitely reap the benefits in the bedroom sooner or later. You don’t have to stop at pumping iron and making sure to maintain a healthful, balanced diet though. Even something as simple as your choice in sexual positions can really give you a boost.
If you’ve never given the Kama Sutra a serious read, it’s high time you did. It’s so much more than a timeless text filled with priceless insights about sex, love, and happiness within romantic relationships. Many of the positions in the Kama Sutra can help you improve your health, build flexibility, and become stronger as well.
The following are some excellent (and relatively accessible) examples of what we mean. Definitely don’t hesitate to dip into your own copy of the Kama Sutra for even more great positions though. Your sex life and your general health will thank you for it!
1. Suspended Union (Sthitarata)
If you and your partner enjoy making love while standing up, you’ll definitely want to add the suspended union position to your sexual to-try list. It’s an especially great choice for quickies or for those spontaneous “got to have you now” love sessions that are oh so red hot. It’s also a terrific position for building strength and improving balance in both partners.
To give it a try, find a wall or other strong, supportive surface you can lean against. The man should then lift his partner onto his erect penis by gripping her firmly underneath her buttocks. The woman can then lock her legs around his waist or brace her feet against the wall behind her—whichever works best and feels more natural.
2. Full Press (Piditaka)
Looking for a spicy new way to approach man-on-top sex? Eager to try a fun position that makes for a nice, tight fit you’ll both love? Give the full press a try the next time you’re in the mood for something different. Not only is it aces when it comes to boosting stimulation for both of you, but it’s terrific for building flexibility as well.
To perform the full press, the woman lies on her back just as she would for missionary sex while the man kneels in front of her. She should then pull her knees up to her chest and position the soles of her feet on the man’s chest. He should then lift her hips onto his lap before entering her. (Feel free to place a pillow or sex cushion underneath the receiving partner’s lower back to make this easier.)
3. Fixing Nails (Shulachitak)
You may need to work on your flexibility and endurance a bit before you can truly master this position, but it’s well worth it. Not only does it make for a really great angle that boosts stimulation for both partners, but it will absolutely help you both in the fitness department as well. The best of both worlds!
Get started by having the woman lie on her back while her lover kneels in front of her, knees positioned on either side of her pelvis. The man should then lift one of her legs, gently stretching it vertically until her foot is at the level of his forehead, before penetrating her. (Her other leg should be left flat.) With each thrust, she should alternate the position of her two legs. The result is an interesting angle change that shifts with every thrust and will absolutely blow your minds.
4. The Cow (Dhenuka II)
If you and your partner love rear entry-style positions, then the cow is definitely for you. Sexually, it’s stellar for increasing stimulation and facilitating an ultra-tight fit you’ll both get excited about. It’s a great position for people looking to work on their balance as well, so definitely take it for a spin.
To try it, have the woman lie flat on her stomach with her legs stretched out straight, but also spread slightly. (Again, a sex cushion or pillow underneath her hips may come in handy.) Placing his legs to the outside of hers, the man should then stretch over her and enter her from behind. If he likes he can also manually press her legs together for an even tighter fit.
5. The Yawn (Jrimbhitaka)
The yawn is a great position for sex lovers that are still working on the flexibility required to do some of the other positions in the Kama Sutra justice, so it’s a great choice for couples just getting started in the exploration department. However, it’s still incredibly sexy and really delivers in the stimulation department.
The woman should lie on her back with her legs spread wide, but also kept flat. The man should then kneel over her with his knees on either side of her hips. If he needs additional support as he starts thrusting, he can grab his partner’s hands or wrists. The yawn has the added thrill factor of the female partner being pinned down, so it makes an especially great addition to bondage play or domination scenarios.
Once you’ve mastered the positions detailed here, keep the adventure going by looking for even more challenging positions to take for a spin. Not only is it a great way to keep your sex life sizzling, but switching things up in the position department is a terrific way to support your ongoing fitness journey as well. Try it and see for yourself!
