The Encircling

Name of Kama Sutra Position: The Encircling

Getting into the position: To accomplish the Encircling, the man stands leaning against a stationary object while the woman puts one foot onto his heart (chest) and the man lends his hand in support. The woman is then prescribed to guide his manhood into her yoni and circle her hips to both of their pleasures.

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? 
Not too much difficulty , but your partner does have to be reasonably flexible in order to get into position.

Did you feel like a pretzel? Were you able to do the motions once in position? 
Not a pretzel per se, but the motions can be a little bit uncoordinated if you have never done anything like it before.

Any recommendations on getting either in or out of this position?
Please do some stretching before attempting to get into this position. I can see some painful injury coming out of this one from either the woman pulling a muscle or the manÕs manhood being in the wrong place at the wrong time during such an injury.

How long did you last in the position? 
We lasted about two minutes until she gave up.

Enjoyment once you were in position (for the woman): NO.
Enjoyment once you were in position (for the man): Me, I actually kind of liked it ...

Short Answers:

Was the position comfortable? Were you able to relax?
Yes, I was very relaxed and comfortable and rather much enjoyed my two minutes.
Woman: No and NO.

Would you consider this to be an intimate position (why or why not)? 
No, I would not say this was an intimate position. It was uncomfortable and awkward for my partner and this made her feel self-conscious and we lost our connection very early on in the game which put a damper on the whole experience.

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? 
This position felt like two insects (praying mantises specifically come to mind) attempting to get it on. I was just waiting for my head to be ripped off in the heat of the moment.

Did she reach orgasm? No
Did he reach orgasm? No

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

Would you do this position again (why or why not)?
No, I would not do this position again, mostly because of my partner's disinterest and detachment. Otherwise, I actually think that it has some very nice possibilities.

Any suggestions to make the position more pleasurable?
I would not even recommend involving yourself with this one unless the woman is either skilled in gymnastics or dance. There is a certain amount of coordination and balance necessary to get away with this and both look and feel good. Also make sure the woman is in a reasonably good mood (in reference to the praying mantis head-ripping action)!
