The Swing

Name of Kama Sutra Position: The Swing

Getting into the position:

Begin by sitting face to face in bed with the womanÕs breasts pressed tightly against the manÕs chest. The lovers should lock heels behind each other's waists and lean back while clasping one another's wrists. Then set the swing gently in motion. This is "Dolita" (the Swing).

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

I would give it a 6 for both the effort involved and its level of fun.

Did you have difficulty getting into the position?


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

I would say that a pretzel fits the description of this one perfectly.

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

It is easiest to get situated while in the cowgirl position. Then when youÕre ready, have the woman slide down between your legs and then you can clasp ankles around each other, grab wrists and start teetering around like thereÕs no tomorrow É

How long did you last in the position?

We lasted until we both almost fell off the bed for the third time.

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

Not bad, as it actually gives slight clitoris stimulation.

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

IÕd say not too bad É but not too good either.

Short Answers:

Was the position comfortable? Were you able to relax?

Man: I was comfortable for three minutes. My testicles, however, were beginning to fall asleep (could just be my own problem though).

Woman: She was only slightly comfortable and relaxed.

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

Yes, this is definitely a romp through adult toyland with all your best goodies and cash prizes up for grabs and display. You are staring right at each other most of the time and working as a team. It was probably the most childish fun IÕve had since I was 9 years old around the back of my neighborÕs tool shed with my school bus crush, Angie Hansen.

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?

The position felt like one of those spring-loaded playground characters you can bounce and teeter on. It feels stimulating, but since you canÕt move your genitals much once you are locked together, it is not a really intense position by any means. But it is still fun!

Did she reach orgasm? No

Did he reach orgasm? No!

Did it take longer than usual to reach orgasm?


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

Yes I would. It definitely breaks up the monotony of day-to-day sex play and I think it has some real possibilities.

Any suggestions to make the position more pleasurable?
Guard rails for the bed? I also think that you could vary this particular position with a few other Kama Sutra gems, such as Churning of the Cream to create one world-class nut- and ovary-busting experience! And in this case, the ÒbustingÓ would be a good thing!
