Humpbacked Bridge

Name of Kama Sutra Position: Humpbacked Bridge

Getting into the position: The man starts by lying on his back on the floor, then pushing himself up into a bridge. The woman then straddles him and uses a variation of grinding movements. Depending on the strength of the man and the leg length of the woman, the man may not want to take on the full weight of his woman unless he is sure he can handle it!

On a scale of 1 to 10 how would you rate position (1 as horrible, 10 as sexual nirvana)? 
This position is a 6.

Did you have difficulty getting into the position?
OK, the basics of the position are pretty easy to get into but actually getting connected up will prove to be the greatest difficulty.

Did you feel like a pretzel? Were you able to do the motions once in position?

No, but I felt like the mound and pole of a game of capture the flag.

Any recommendations on getting either in or out of this position? 
Very carefully! Have something soft below you to land on in case of a ÒLondon bridgesÓ collapse.

How long did you last in the position? 
Five minutes

Enjoyment once you were in position (for the woman): She found it very entertaining.

Enjoyment once you were in position (for the man): I was entertained too, but it was hard to focus on the sex part.

Short Answers:

Was the position comfortable? Were you able to relax?
Man: No, not at all comfortable.
Woman: She was quite comfortable.

Would you consider this to be an intimate position (why or why not)? 
Well, this is one of those positions that is intimate, simply because of the amount of communication and trust that is involved. There is not much physical connection and I felt spiritually detached, not to mention I really could not see what was going on. Perhaps if you added a few more naked bodies into the picture you would have a real party on your hands.

Are you achy or sore after the fact?
Woman: No

What did the position feel like (both mentally and physically) in 50 words or less? 
It was erotic stretching out into a vulnerable position and being straddled like a bucking bronco. The real disappointment comes when you realize you canÕt buck like a bronco, much less giggle like Jell-O. The disappointment, however, builds up to a nice climax once you change positions to something more maneuverable.

Did she reach orgasm? No
Did he reach orgasm? No, but I kept an erection and that seems to be the real battle you're up against.

Did it take longer than usual to reach orgasm? N/A

Would you do this position again (why or why not)? 
Yes, I probably would play with this again, because I think if you could ever get some real motion going here this would be one to tell your grandkids about.

Any suggestions to make the position more pleasurable?
The real problem a man is going to have here is lack of visual stimulation, which is very important for many of us. I honestly think that with another couple, this could get pretty wild, but alas for me that will not be an option. But if it is for you, I would sure love to hear about how it goes!
