  • PART II
    CHAPTER VI
    Of the different ways of lying down, and various kinds of congress


    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'.
