CONCLUDING REMARKS

 

When the female raises both of her thighs straight up, it is called the 

"rising position." 

 

When she raises both of her legs, and places them on her lover's 

shoulders, it is called the "yawning position." 

 

When the legs are contracted, and thus held by the lover before his 

bosom, it is called the "pressed position." 

 

When only one of her legs is stretched out, it is called the "half 

pressed position." 

 

When the woman places one of her legs on her lover's shoulder, and 

stretches the other out, and then places the latter on his shoulder, and 

stretches out the other, and continues to do so alternately, it is 

called the "splitting of a bamboo." 

 

When one of her legs is placed on the head, and the other is stretched 

out, it is called the "fixing of a nail." This is learnt by practice 

only. 

 

When both the legs of the woman are contracted, and placed on her 

stomach, it is called the "crab's position." 

 

When the thighs are raised and placed one upon the other, it is called 

the "packed position." 

 

When the shanks are placed one upon the other, it is called the 

"lotus-like position." 

 

When a man, during congress, turns round, and enjoys the woman without 

leaving her, while she embraces him round the back all the time, it is 

called the "turning position," and is learnt only by practice. 

 

Thus says Suvarnanabha, these different ways of lying down, sitting, and 

standing should be practised in water, because it is easy to do so 

therein. But Vatsyayana is of opinion that congress in water is 

improper, because it is prohibited by the religious law. 

 

When a man and a woman support themselves on each other's bodies, or on 

a wall, or pillar, and thus while standing engage in congress, it is 

called the "supported congress." 

 

When a man supports himself against a wall, and the woman, sitting on 

his hands joined together and held underneath her, throws her arms round 

his neck, and putting her thighs alongside his waist, moves herself by 

her feet, which are touching the wall against which the man is leaning, 

it is called the "suspended congress." 

 

When a woman stands on her hands and feet like a quadruped, and her 

lover mounts her like a bull, it is called the "congress of a cow." At 

this time everything that is ordinarily done on the bosom should be done 

on the back. 

 

In the same way can be carried on the congress of a dog, the congress of 

a goat, the congress of a deer, the forcible mounting of an ass, the
