Marriage and Beyond>>Marriage and Sex>>The Man on Top Positions

The Man on Top position commonly known as the missionary position is the most widely used from times immemorial and gives the best possible enjoyment and penetration. Sage Vatsyayana has made these positions more exciting and pleasant by his sheer brilliant expressions and imaginations. If one reads carefully through all outlined positions in this category, it is evident that what Vatsyayana promotes constantly is for the man and woman to strive for maximum contact of the organs.

The Ratipasha Position
Vatsyayana describes this position as follows:

"If, encircling and trapping
her thighs with yours,
you grip so hard that
she cries out in pain,
it is "Ratipasha"
a device most charming to the ladies."

The Ratipasha position, also dubbed Love's Noose entails not much more than a hardening of the basic grip by the man while he's on top of the woman. In this position while giving maximum thrusts the man puts additional pressure on the woman by his thighs as he clutches the woman. The woman feels the strain of the man's thigh hug but the heightened pleasure she goes through nullifies that. Not a very recommended position because not every woman derives pleasure through pain.

The Uthkanta Position
Vatsyayana describes this position as follows:

"Lift the lady's feet until her soles
lie perfectly parallel,
one to each side of her slender throat,
cup her breasts and enjoy her:
this technique is "Uthkanta" (Throat-high)."

In this position the woman's yoni is completely exposed in such a manner that the man enters her forcefully getting very deep penetration and stimulation. The man lifts the woman's leg to such an extent that they are held parallel to her ears and her yoni is completely exposed and is ready for penetration. Simultaneously with the same grip he holds and caresses her breasts and then enters her making love to her passionately and deeply. This is a mutually rewarding position with both the man and the woman getting maximum exposure to each other's sexual parts. Consequently, stimulation for both is very high and this is a highly enjoyable position.

The Ratisundara Position
Vatsyayana describes this position as follows:

"Catch hold of her two feet,
raising them till they press upon her breasts
and her legs form a rough circle.
Clasp her neck and make love to her:
this is "Ratisundara" (Aphrodite's Delight)."

In this kind of missionary position the woman has to be very flexible and agile. The man has to lift the woman's leg high up in such a way that it touches her breasts forming a semi circle. The man then proceeds to enter her by clasping her neck. In this position like all the other Man on Top positions, the man as well as the woman, reach the pinnacle of satisfaction and pleasure.

The Vyomapada Position
Vatsyayana describes this position as follows:

"Your lovely wife, lying on the bed,
grasps her own feet
and draws them up until they reach her hair;
you catch her breasts and make love:
this is "Vyomapada" (Sky-foot)."

Another variation in the basic missionary position is the Vyomapada position wherein the woman lifts her feet and draws them back until they reach her hair exposing her yoni to the man. The man enters her forcefully caressing and playing with her breasts. In this position also penetration is very deep and it is a very enjoyable position. As is routine in such positions, the woman needs to be supple so that her legs can be pushed back without causing undue inconvenience.

The Manmathpriya Position
Vatsyayana describes this position as follows:

"She lies flat on her back,
you sit between her parted knees, raise them,
hook her feet over your thighs,
catch hold of her breasts, and enjoy her:
this is "Manmathpriya" (Dear to Cupid)."

In all the missionary positions Vatsyayana's basic objective was to ensure that stimulation and penetration is deep and intense. In these positions the woman though has to lie back and enjoy but also has to give utmost co-operation and exposure to her man so that he can enter her and satisfy her to the fullest. In this position also the man raises the womans parted keens and hooks her feet over his thighs thereby completely exposing her yoni for the penetration. He can then enter her and at the same time caress her breasts giving her divine pleasure.

The Devabandha Position
Vatsyayana describes this position as follows:

"Her breasts stab your chest,
her thighs are stretched out along yours,
you clasp each other's hands and lie sprawled,
like two starfish making love.
This is Devabandha."

The Devabandha position is a fairly routine position described with more aesthetic gusto in the Kamasutra. In this position the man lies sprawled across the woman, both with their arms and legs extended, her breasts digging into the man's chest thereby both achieving maximum pleasure from this contact.

The Samputa Position
Vatsyayana describes this position as follows:

"In Samputa your legs lie along hers
caressing their whole length from toes to thighs.
Your lover may be below you,
or you may both lie on your sides,
in which case she should always be on your left."

This position is more preferred by men who have small penis because it gives them the required deepness and stimulation. The position is simple and very natural. The woman lies on her back while the man enters her from on top. The Sage also gives an alternate position which is from the side, most preferable the woman should be on your left. While the man is lying on his partner, by supporting himself on his elbows and knees he ensures the woman doesn't get crushed.

The Gramya Position
Vatsyayana describes this position as follows:

"When she lies on her back
with her two thighs pressed tightly together
and you make love to her,
keeping your thighs outside hers,
it is "Gramya".

In this position foreplay is a must in order to get the woman lubricating because in this position the woman's yoni is not fully exposed to the man and entering her will be difficult if the woman is dry. This is a fairly basic position in which the woman lies on her back with her thighs closed tight and the man enters her and remains locked during the duration of the love making. This position is therefore called the rustic position.

The Madandhvaja Position
Vatsyayana describes this position as follows:

"Grasping the ankles
of the round hipped woman, whose buttocks
are like two ripe gourds,
raise her beautiful thighs
and spread the thigh-joints widely.

Full of desire, saying sweet words,
approach her with your body stiff as a pole
and drive straight forward
to pierce her lotus and join your limbs:
experts call it "Madandhvaja" (The Flag of Cupid)."

This is a very stimulating and satisfactory position wherein the man grasps the ankles of the woman, simultaneously raising and spreading her thighs wide to enter her from behind. Though this position need a bit of expertise to perform it but once you get the hang of the position it is very enjoyable for the man because he can control the thrusts and the penetration.
