The Nirvana Position

Updated: JUNE 25, 2021

The nirvana is a slight variation of the missionary position, and a classic Kama Sutra position. Instead of the receiver spreading their legs and wrapping their arms around their partner's back during penetration, they keep their legs closed and grasp something above their head, such as a bedpost. This position enables shallower penetration and more clitoral stimulation, which sends many people to nirvana.

This position is simple, gentle and accessible for a wide variety of physical abilities.
