Looking to move beyond missionary? Try turning to the Kama Sutra—the ancient sex bible that’s full of bizarre, awkward, and ridiculously acrobatic sex positions that most of us have never tried.
While that might sound uninviting, there’s a reason that the Kama Sutra has been a go-to sex position guide for thousands of years. If you really want to try a certain position, you’re going to need a positive and excited energy that will make it fun and pleasurable no matter what the angle. So if you’re ready to spice up your sex life, try these 5 bizarre-but-hot sex positions you’ll both love—or love trying!
The Sammukha position is a relatively easy position to get started with, and one you’ve probably never thought to try. In this position, she leans back against a wall while standing and spreads her legs as wide as she can while you enter her. This position does lower her a bit, so shorter women may need to stand on something and taller men may have to kneel if she’s really flexible.
Although this position might seem a little awkward at first, it’s actually an incredibly passionate and romantic position thanks to all the eye contact Because she’s supporting herself against a wall, this position also offers some of the deepest penetration possible.
The Janukurpara position will probably require some extra gym time, but it’s worth it. In this position you lift her up, locking your elbows under her knees and gripping her butt with your hands while she places her arms around your neck to hold on. Janukurpara offers extra-deep penetration, lots of eye contact, and it has the added benefit of making you look like a champion. A lot of acrobatic positions offer just bragging rights, but some offer bragging rights and pleasure.
The Piditaka position is a comfortable, laid-back position that you can do any time. In this position, she lies on her back and pulls her knees into her chest, resting her feet on your chest as you kneel in front of her. With your knees on either side of her hips, you raise her hips onto your thighs and enter her.
She’ll feel tighter in this position because her vagina is narrowed when her legs are up. She can also press her legs together or cross her ankles, increasing pressure for both of you. This position is great for those into positions offering female vulnerability. For those desiring the auspiciousness of the Kama Sutra even more, the guy can draw her feet up to touch his mouth and forehead, conveying tenderness, humility, and devotion.
The Virsha position isn’t actually that bizarre, you just know it by another name: The Reverse Cowgirl. That said, it’s a position that’s used a lot in porn but not so much in everyday sex—but it should be. Because Virsha is a “girl on top” position, it makes her feel sexy, strong, and in control, while still giving you an awesome view of her ass,.
In this position, you lie flat on your back while she sits or kneels on top of you, facing your feet. She lowers herself onto you and leans forward, gripping your ankles. Virsha is Sanskrit for bull, and, as simple as it sounds, it’s no bull when I say that this is very difficult. Even the best can’t master it without practice—and what better reason to have lots of sex!
Tripadam is the perfect position for a quickie because it doesn’t allow for deep penetration, but it does allow for short and fast fun. In this position, you both stand, facing each other. You put your hand under one of her knees and raise it off the floor, turning the two of you into a “tripadam”—or a tripod—and enter her while standing. (This position works best if both of you are around the same height.) Another benefit to this move, like all standing positions, is that you both get maximum blood flow to your erogenous zones for sexual function.
