    CHAPTER VI
    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 widely opened position
  • The yawning position
  • The position of the wife of Indra
