    SEXUAL POSITIONS
    "THE TOP" position


    "The TOP" position, being pretty close to the missionary position, also named in Kama Sutra "Driving the nail home", makes it easy for the man approach it without having to withdraw his penis from his lover's vagina. That is why the lovers should perform "The top" position after the classical one in order to keep in contact their genitals.

    Tantric masters recommend to the lovers to keep in contact their sexual organs during the intercourse, because in this way it is not interrupted the energetic exchange between lovers that is launch during the erotic act.

    The woman should not be passive in this position. By holding the man's thighs she can press his pelvis on hers, helping him to penetrate her deeply.

    As same as "Driving the nail home" position, "The top" position is not recommended for the beginners in the art of sexual continence because it favours the accumulation of the sexual energy in the genital area. That is why the man has to make slow motions and to focus his attention in the cardiac plexus in order to control the sexual energy and to avoid the ejaculation. This is recommended for woman, too.
