The Amazon

The Amazon begins with the man lying on his back with both feet in the air, legs curled up towards his abdomen, and legs spread comfortably. The woman then squats over top of the man, pushing his legs forward, curling him backward, so that she can straddle his hamstrings and achieve penetration at the same time.

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

This position deserves an 8.5 for its unique pleasure points

Did you have difficulty getting into the position?


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

Yes, this is a pretzel position, of which motions do not come naturally for the most part.

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

Your parts are not going to match up nice and neat as in most Kama Sutra positions. The man is going to need to angle his member forward towards his testicles, which can be easier for some than for others!

How long did you last in the position?

We lasted about 10 minutes in this position until climax.

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

She did enjoy this position and due to the female dominance was able to achieve a very healthy orgasm. She did mention however that the odd submissive nature of the man, who is spread eagle on his back, turned her off somewhat.

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

This position can be very pleasurable in a very unnatural and uncomfortable way.

Short Answers:

Was the position comfortable? Were you able to relax?

Man:  No, not particularly comfortable for the man.

Woman:  Decently comfortable, although there is more leg strength needed than the tradition girl on top, which makes it a lot less relaxing.

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

This is a very distant position in some ways and intimate in others. There is very little face to face contact and communication is minimal. The man will feel vulnerable and feminine during the execution of this move, which lends itself inherently to intimacy and trust. The more intimately involved you are with your partner, the greater your experience should be, because you both will be able to open up and experience sex from the vantage point of each others perspective.

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?

This position allows the man a candid view of what submissive sex is all about. The woman has complete control of the motion and the man is simply there for the ride. The man, with his butt in the air and legs curled into his stomach will experience moments of lost machismo and feminism, but this can lead to a new realm of traditionally forbidden pleasures if he opens himself to the experience.

Did she reach orgasm?


Did he reach orgasm?


Did it take longer than usual to reach orgasm?

No, this position is meant to be accomplished rather quickly to maximize pleasure and minimize discomfort.

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

Yes, but this is not something that I would recommend doing very often. What makes this position fun is its unique sexual perspective. It is great for the male who loves submissive role-playing, and in this case may become something that you would do more often. For the traditional couple however, this can be a big turn-off if overused!

Any suggestions to make the position more pleasurable?

This position lends itself to some adventurous role-playing for the right domineering woman.
