Don’t be mistaken by thinking that the Kama Sutra is just for the super-bendy and more experienced between the sheets! We’ve specially selected some Kama Sutra positions that anyone can try. Whether you have a long-term partner, you’re in a new relationship or just want some new Kama Sutra tips, this easy-to-follow sex position guide will help you learn more about the Kama Sutra.
What is the Kama Sutra?
The Kama Sutra is an ancient Indian text that was written to help teach men on how to have a happy marriage.
A lot of people think that it’s just about sex, but that’s not strictly true. The Kama Sutra is made up of seven sections but only the second, called ‘On Sexual Union’, details different sexual positions.
This part of it is illustrated with drawings to show couples different ways of having sex.
Despite it being centuries old, The Kama Sutra is still just as fun to try today. Some of the positions are a little more challenging than others, but all are designed to give both of you pleasure.
We’ve taken some of the most popular Kama Sutra positions from this ancient book to help you spice up your love life.

1. Kama Sutra: Widely Opened
The Widely Opened sex position is part of the ancient Kama Sutra.
If you’re looking for ways to heat things up between the sheets, then theKama Sutra is a great place to start. You don’t need to be a gymnist to try the positions – while some are more difficult than others, there are plenty you can try with your partner that won’t put either of you in danger of breaking your neck!
The Widely Opened position is a great one for couples who are new to the Kama Sutra. Ok so it might not be the most romantic name, but it certainly explains the idea behind this position (and if you try it you’ll see, it can be very sexy).
Unlike some sex positions, Widely Opened isn’t a step too far from the well-known and well-loved missionary position, so if you want to start with something more familiar, Widely Opened is a good position to master first.
Widely Opened: How to do it
1. Your man kneels on the bed. You raise your bum and thighs and wrap your legs around him.
2. Then arch your back and lean backwards as he thrusts in and out of you, holding you underneath your back.
Widely Opened: What’s great about it?
Your partner’s upper body strength will come in handy for when he places his hands under you back to life you up, which is pretty hot in itself.
Leaning back with your boobs on full show will drive your man wild and make you feel brilliant as a result. Plus, it’s a flattering position to lay in, if the idea of being on top fills you with dread!
