OF THE DIFFERENT WAYS OF LYING DOWN, AND VARIOUS KINDS OF CONGRESS
On the occasion of a `high congress' the Mrigi (Deer) woman should lie down in such a way as to widen her yoni, while in a `low congress' the Hastini (Elephant) woman should lie down so as to contract hers. But in an `equal congress' they should lie down in the natural position. What is said above concerning the Mrigi and the Hastini applies also to the Vadawa (Mare) woman. In a `low congress the woman should particularly make use of medicine, to cause her desires to be satisfied quickly.
The Deer-woman has the following three ways of lying down:
The yawning position
The position of the wife of Indra
When she lowers her head and raises her middle parts, it is called the `widely opened position'. At such a time the man should apply some unguent, so as to make the entrance easy.
When she raises her thighs and keeps them wide apart and engages in congress, it is called the `yawning position'.
When she places her thighs with her legs doubled on them upon her sides, and thus engages in congress, it is called the position of Indrani and this is learnt only by practice. The position is also useful in the case of the `highest congress'.
The `clasping position' is used in `low congress', and in the `lowest congress', together with the `pressing position', the `twining position', and the `mare's position'.
When the legs of both the male and the female are stretched straight out over each other, it is called the `clasping position'. It is of two kinds, the side position and the supine position, according to the way in which they lie down. In the side position the male should invariably lie on his left side, and cause the woman to lie on her right side, and this rule is to be observed in lying down with all kinds of women.
When, after congress has begun in the clasping position, the woman presses her lover with her thighs, it is called the `pressing position'.
When the woman places one of her thighs across the thigh of her lover it is called the `twining position'.
When a woman forcibly holds in her yoni the lingam after it is in, it is called the `mare's position'. This is learnt by practice only, and is chiefly found among the women of the Andhra country.
The above are the different ways of lying down, mentioned by Babhravya. Suvarnanabha, however, gives the following in addition:
When the female raises both of her thighs straight up, it is called the `rising position'.
When she raises both of her legs, and places them on her lover's shoulders, it is called the `yawning position'.
When the legs are contracted, and thus held by the lover before his bosom, it is called the `pressed position'.
When only one of her legs is stretched out, it is called the `half pressed position'.
When the woman places one of her legs on her lover's shoulder, and stretches the other out, and then places the latter on his shoulder, and stretches out the other, and continues to do so alternately, it is called the `splitting of a bamboo'.
