What is the Kama Sutra in pregnancy?
The Kama Sutra, written in Sanskrit sometime between 400 BC and 200 AD, describes practical aspects of sex as well as the philosophy of love and desire. It is an ancient Indian Hindu text written by Vātsyāyana and widely considered to be the standard work on human sexual behaviour in Sanskrit literature. Specifically the kamasutra can be helpful in pregnancy for couples to find comfortable and safe sexual positions.
A portion of the work consists of practical advice on sexual intercourse. "Kāma" which is one of the four goals of Hindu life, means desire including sexual desire the latter being the subject of the textbook, and "sūtra" literally means a thread or line that holds things together.
The Kama Sutra is not exclusively a sex manual; it presents itself as a guide to a virtuous and gracious living that discusses the nature of love, family life and other aspects pertaining to pleasure oriented faculties of human life.
Sex positions are positions that couples use for sexual intercourse in order to get pregnant or just for fun.
Many sexual acts are described by the positions the participants adopt in order to perform those acts.
Sexual intercourse generally involves the sexual penetration of the body of one person by another, or simply direct stimulation of the sex organ of one by another, a sex position may not necessarily involve penetration or direct stimulation, and may be non-penetrative instead.
In general there are three categories of common sexual intercourse:
- vaginal intercourse, involving vaginal penetration by the penis
- oral intercourse, involving oral caress of the penis or vagina with a partner's mouth
- anal intercourse, involving insertion of the penis into a partner's anus
Kama Sutra is presumed or depicted as a synonym for creative sexual positions; in reality, only 20% of Kama Sutra is about sexual positions.
