Disclaimer: The subject of this post is human sexuality in the context of Christian belief. It is intended for mature audiences. If you are under the age of 18 you should have your parents read it and judge if it is appropriate for you to read. Parents, lighten up about this with your teens because quite frankly I am trying to undo a lot of Christian mistakes in informing and educating people about sex. You have been warned and encouraged, enter at your own risk. Also, I am by no means a sexual expert, just a guy who has been married to the same woman for 25 plus years and a pastor who has for what ever reason been exposed to a lot of sexual issues during his ministry. If you don’t find your answer here, keep searching there is probably someone out there that has it.
Ok, now the really good stuff. That is now we are actually getting to the actual sexual intercourse part of the Kama Sutra and in particular the issue of the best position regardless of sexual position for which sexual intercourse can be enjoyed. This is about sexual position as far as how the penis interacts with the vagina, not so much the actual position the couple uses during sex although that is addressed as well. In order to do this one must take different positions and maybe willing to do different positions for sex.
This is the interesting thing and one I think now that most readers and modern writers on sex miss when putting forth a version of the Kama Sutra for the masses, this is not about having a variety of positions for sex but discovering the best position for you and your lover to have the maximum sexual pleasure for both sides. I read this part a couple of times and that is the message I got every time. Position experimentation is not about having a variety of positions to elevate boredom but more of an exploration to find what positions provide the most pleasure for both the man and the woman during sex.
This results in a number of positions being named and discussed briefly In the Kama Sutra. However, the author didn’t go into great detail and of course there were at the time no illustrations. An original reader would be left with experimentation leading to discovery which may have been the point all along. There are some additional issues discussed like a man with two women or a man with multiple women (not the reverse). There is simply a direction from the Kama Sutra to enjoy and experiment to increase enjoyment.
From a Christian standpoint I could find no moral or ethical problems in this section either, unless one wants to take issue with making love to multiple women or sex outside of marriage. Inside the marriage bed things here seem like they would be good and helpful advice to exploring a couple’s sexuality. There is an instruction to keep exploring and trying out new things but the aim is not variety but maximum sexual pleasure for both the man and the woman.
