With World Kama Sutra Day approaching on Friday 21st June, there’s no better way to get into the spirit than by trying out popular sex positions yourself. After all, who doesn’t want to try something new in the bedroom at any given time? You may have even dipped your toe into Kamasutra without even realising! Below, we explain 10 of the top Kamasutra sex positions you can try this World Kama Sutra Day.


What Is Kama Sutra?

So, first things first, what is Kamasutra play? Kamasutra is all about enjoying pleasure at its core. The term ‘Kama Sutra’ or ‘Principles of Love’ as it is better known, is an ancient Hindu text on three key factors: sexuality, eroticism, and emotional fulfilment. However, its sole focus isn’t based on having the very best sex. Sex aside, Kamasutra is about making new discoveries whether that be about yourself or about your partner.

Kama Sutra Sex Tips

When it comes to trying out new things in the bedroom, not matter what they might be, communication with your partner is key. To ensure you both have the best experience, it’s beneficial to discuss your boundaries and preferences beforehand. That way, you can be confident that neither of you are stepping too far above the line mid-act, maintaining its enjoyment and pleasure. It can also be helpful to have a safe word or phrase. This is something either you or your partner can use if you feel uncomfortable at any time.
