The Clasping Position has long traditionally been recognized with the male on top, but this version has been swapped around, giving the woman complete control of the motions. The position begins easiest with the man lying on his back, legs together, with a readied erection. The woman sits on him in standard cowgirl position and then slides her legs back until they are straight behind her. The man can also spread his legs slightly, allowing the woman's legs to fall between his for a slightly different angle of penetration and clitoral stimulation.
On a scale of 1 to 10 how would you rate position (1 as horrible, 10 as sexual nirvana)?
A respectable 8.
Did you have difficulty getting into the position? There is no doubt that which ever diety you choose to believe in, had no intension for the human species to have sex in this manner. It is not overly difficult to get into position, but it may take a little shuffling around for you both to get comfortable.
Did you feel like a pretzel? Were you able to do the motions once in position? While this position may be a bit of a fish out of water, it is certainly no pretzel... more like a twisty stick. The motions are fairly simple to do otherwise.
Any recommendations on getting either in or out of this position: The guy has to be hard to accomplish this, and I mean "hard." A halfer is just not going to cut it on this one. Once she closes her legs, it number one reduces the normal depth a man can achieve, plus tightens her up considerably.
How long did you last in the position? 15 to 20 minutes.
Enjoyment once you were in position (for the woman): She would give this position a solid 10 if it were only her giving out the ranks. I think I lost the count of the number of orgasms she had.
Enjoyment once you were in position (for the man): This position was good for me, but as I am turned on more by the doing than being done, it wasn't quite as exciting as other positions in the Kama Sutra lineup.
Was the position comfortable? Were you able to relax?
Man: Yes, this position is comfortable and relaxing as long as the man maintains a good hard erection. If there is any loss of hardness at all, a slight sense of fear will set in, because there is nothing more painful to a man that a woman grinding on his manhood when it slips out and gets jammed on the side of her leg... ouch!
Woman: She was in perfect comfort and relaxation... no complaints! This is indeed a position made for a woman.
Would you consider this to be an intimate position (Why or why not)? While this is certainly a bit of an intimate position, I will say that it could also be classified slightly as not. My reasoning is that a woman can get slightly selfish during this position and completely into her own enjoyment. He may even feel as if she forgot that he was even human, but more like a doorknob in an adolescent girls room.
Are you achy or sore after the fact?
Man: Yes, pubic bone is a little sore from all that grinding.
What did the position feel like (both mentally and physically) in 50 words or less? Physically, this position feels a lot like any other girl on top position, but just a little more risky (getting your shaft stubbed) and she feels a little more tight. Because of its minimal involvement for the guy, it makes it easy to last awhile, while she pops off orgasm after orgasm. It is a confidence builder. After 20 minutes or so of this position, any man will look like he's Casanova.
Did she reach orgasm? ...Yes
Did he reach orgasm? ...No
Did it take longer than usual to reach orgasm? No, she came quick... then quick... then quick again...
Would you do this position again (why or why not)? Sure, this is a good position. It is especially good if the woman is having a hard time achieving an orgasm while the man is about ready to pop. You just slide into this while she has a couple dozen orgasms, then the man can roll her over and pump her the normal way for his own orgasm. It doesn't get much better than that.
Any suggestions to make the position more pleasurable: Nope, this one is good as is...
