    SEXUAL POSITIONS
    "THE CARESS OF THE BUD" position


    Lying on the stomach, legs interlaced, the man and the woman turn with their backs to each other. However, the special effect of this position may be somewhat painful for some men, whose short and thick penis can only be flexed with difficulty. In the continuation of this position the woman, who maintains her balance with one arm now facing her lover and who is supported on the man's body, is only titillated at the entrance to her vagina by the glans. Naturally this is only foreplay to deeper coitus. The man inserts his erect penis into the vagina by turning gently to one side. The vagina is now ready to receive it in its totality.

    This position is proper for those lovers who are beginners in the art of sexual energy control. "The caress of the bud" position offers to the lovers the possibility to become more conscious about intensity of pleasure and also to reduce it by stopping the movement when they feel they are get close to the climax.

    For sublimation the sexual energy they have to concentrate their attention in the middle of the forehead. This will induce a clear-minded state in both lovers, which will help them to control the sexual energy and to sublimate it in more elevated energies.
