CHAPTER VI. 

 

OF THE DIFFERENT WAYS OF LYING DOWN, AND VARIOUS KINDS OF CONGRESS. 

 

 

On the occasion of a "high congress" the Mrigi (Deer) woman should lie 

down in such a way as to widen her yoni, while in a "low congress" the 

Hastini (Elephant) woman should lie down so as to contract hers. But in 

an "equal congress" they should lie down in the natural position. What 

is said above concerning the Mrigi and the Hastini applies also to the 

Vadawa (Mare) woman. In a "low congress" the women should particularly 

make use of medicine, to cause her desires to be satisfied quickly. 

 

The Deer-woman has the following three ways of lying down. 

 

The widely opened position. 

The yawning position. 

The position of the wife of Indra. 

 

(1). When she lowers her head and raises her middle parts, it is called 

the "widely opened position." At such a time the man should apply some 

unguent, so as to make the entrance easy. 

 

(2). When she raises her thighs and keeps them wide apart and engages in 

congress, it is called the "yawning position." 

 

(3). When she places her thighs with her legs doubled on them upon her 

sides, and thus engages in congress, it is called the position of 

Indrani, and this is learnt only by practice. The position is also 

useful in the case of the "highest congress." 

 

The "clasping position" is used in "low congress," and in the "lowest 

congress," together with the "pressing position," the "twining 

position", and the "mare's position." 

 

When the legs of both the male and the female are stretched straight 

out over each other, it is called the "clasping position." It is of two 

kinds, the side position and the supine position, according to the way 

in which they lie down. In the side position the male should invariably 

lie on his left side, and cause the woman to lie on her right side, and 

this rule is to be observed in lying down with all kinds of women. 

 

When, after congress has begun in the clasping position, the woman 

presses her lover with her thighs, it is called the "pressing position." 

 

When the woman places one of her thighs across the thigh of her lover, 

it is called the "twining position." 

 

When a woman forcibly holds in her yoni the lingam after it is in, it is 

called the "mare's position." This is learnt by practice only, and is 

chiefly found among the women of the Andra country. 

 

The above are the different ways of lying down, mentioned by Babhravya; 

Suvarnanabha, however, gives the following in addition.
