Kama Sutra: Apadravyas

of this position?

I would highly recommend first asking your partner before punching a hole into your box spring (or water mattress). Some women frown on such an action and you will find yourself rather alone with one heck of a John Holmes replica (and nothing to do with it). Perhaps between the couch cushions would be an appropriate resting place in today’s world of orthopedic mattresses and memory foam.

Enjoyment once you were in position (for the woman): She thought it sounded creepy.

Enjoyment once you were in position (for the man): Probably couldn’t think of anything much other than the pain.

Would you consider this to be an intimate position (why or why not)?

OK, any man willing to put himself through such lengths to enlarge himself for the pleasure of his woman is incredibly into her and her needs and should be either congratulated or committed to an asylum.

Are you achy or sore after the fact?

Man: My manhood would never be the same if I did, in fact, come out of this in one piece. The scary part is some men of India are said to have lived their lives using this method in order to stay enlarged. I think I would rather take my chances with the pill and pump option.

Woman: She would be just fine and dandy!

What did the position feel like (both mentally and physically) in 50 words or less?

Now while I have never done this, I have thought about it quite extensively. I think it would simulate having your manhood slammed in a car door, put through a meat grinder and then seasoned with a few dashes of salt.

Would you do this position again (why or why not)?

I would hope I never even THINK of this position again!

Any suggestions to make the position more pleasurable?

Use the pump and pills instead. Don’t throw your sex life away, young Kama Sutra grasshoppers!

Getting into the position: The man rubs his manhood with wasp stings and then massages it with oil as it begins to swell. It is then prescribed that he let it dangle through the bed for 10 nights using a cool ointment to soothe the pain and swelling. After the 10th night, with the bonus of a rather enlarged manhood, he will be ready to make love to his woman.

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


Did you have difficulty getting into the position?

I did not actually do this, but its interesting nature at least deserves an honorary mention.

Any recommendations on getting either in or out
