There is no better guide to sex than the Kama Sutra. Of course, it also comes with a hint of sexism, much like all our historical works but with a little tweak here and there, you can fit it right into your sex life. One of those things that I tried to fit into my sex life this weekend are the different kinds of bites mentioned in the Kama Sutra. The book really focusses on making sex more slow and sensual than fast and passionate. So I decided to give it a go with my boyfriend and well, here is our verdict!
This one is the simplest. It's basically just lightly biting the lower lip. So light that it doesn't even leave a mark. I tried it as soon as I met my boyfriend and he was pleasantly surprised. It got him instantly in the mood.
Here, one is supposed to bite the ear or the left cheek (though you can bite the right one too, why discriminate?). Personally, the ear is a huge erogenous zone for me so I actually made my boyfriend try this on me before I tried it on him. He was a little wary of biting me hard enough to leave a mark but it was still a huge turn on for me in the moment.
This bite is on the forehead. It requires precision, of course, to bite the forehead in a way that leaves a very tiny mark and also to nip the skin in the first place. So I hate to say that my boyfriend and I kind of failed at the bindu. It just felt odd so we left it at that.
Basically, you can make a bindu mala at various different parts of the body. You just have to make the bites in a loop. It could be the neck, the breasts or inner thigh. I started at my boyfriend's neck and down till his navel and he started at my inner thigh and up my...
The idea behind the pravalamani is to create an ornamental shape with the help of your upper teeth. Which is also why it's called the coral. It was easy enough to perform but wasn't that great of an add-on.
Mani mala is very similar to bindu mala so basically, we got to do it twice. This time, my boyfriend started from my lower neck to the tip of my breasts and oh, my!
These are supposed to be scattered bites, majorly around the breasts, that look like clouds. My boyfriend tried giving them to me all through our little experimental session so they were actually pretty fun, albeit a little purposeless.
Oh, hell yes! Now for this one, you really need to be in a steamy moment. These bites are much like the broken cloud, except redder and harder and they are amazing! But you also have to know your partner's limit so you don't end up hurting each other.
