Kama Sutra: the orisson

Share on Nextdoor

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

The motions were all quite simple … so I would say I felt most like a vanilla yogurt pretzel going in for its dip of creamy sweet yogurt goodness.

Any recommendations on getting either in or out of this position:

There are no recommendations for getting in or out of position, but I think this is a good place to talk about the construction of the harness necessary for the position. The basic contraption can either be purchased commercially or hand made. If you build it yourself, it should cost you about $50. You will need several feet of high tensile strength rope, a pulley, a comfortable harness or netting, and a sturdy beam from which to hang it.

How long did you last in the position?

20 minutes.

Enjoyment once you were in position (for the woman):

A solid two thumbs up!

Enjoyment once you were in position (for the man):


Short Answers:

Was the position comfortable? Were you able to relax?

Man: I was comfortable, but once the games begun I would say that there was not a whole lot of relaxing going on ...

Woman: She was very comfortable and relaxed.

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

Yes, this is a very intimate position and due to its delicate nature and execution, it involves a lot of trust. The male lies down with his partner dangling over his member.  The woman is strung up in a rather immobile and vulnerable position with a very excited and intense partner living out his most wild and vivid fantasies through her… TRUST!

Are you achy or sore after the fact?

Man: No.

Woman: No.

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

It was a culmination of several dreams coming true. It’s as close to making love in a zero gravity chamber as most people will ever get. In addition, you can try all of your wildest fantasies and dreams without the need of he-man strength to hold your partner.

Did she reach orgasm?

“Yes … yes … oh, oh yes …”

Did he reach orgasm?


Did it take longer than usual to reach orgasm?

I actually had to work to keep it going as long as possible.

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

Oh please let me live long enough to experience this at least once more! It really has to be experienced to know the pleasures that it can give. What are you waiting for? It certainly isn’t going to build itself and your in-laws probably aren’t going to help you either!

Any suggestions to make the position more pleasurable:

Have fun. Play around with each other and try as many different positions as you can imagine … you never know what is going to feel good!

Position: The Orisson

The position involves constructing a suspension harness with ropes and pulleys. This allows the male to bounce the female up and down atop him with minimal effort.

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

At long last we finally have a solid 10.

Did you have difficulty getting into the position?

No difficulty getting into position, but the building of the contraption to raise my partner safely was. "Safely" being the key word here, but that's a whole different story.
