Most Tantric sacred lovemaking texts substitute more poetic terms to refer to the male and female sexual anatomy. Penis is lingam. Vagina is yoni. There are hundreds of other terms commonly used, such as golden rod, wand of light, jade stalk, tangled garden, honey pot and secret cave. Using such terminology is generally perceived to be more respectful, sensual and romantic. Certainly the language commonly heard on the streets such as cock and cunt, seems by comparison crude and disrespectful.
Genital Sizes – Mix and Match
The Kama Sutra, by Vatsyayana classifies the lingam and yoni according to size.
Male – Lingam: Hare (small) – Bull (medium) – Horse (large)
Female – Yoni: Deer (small) – Mare (medium) – Elephant (large)
According to Vatsyayana (and common sense) matches of equal size are ideal, but lovers can manage the other combinations quite nicely. Certain positions are helpful when there is a mismatch of genital sizes.
When the lingam is small and the yoni large try the following positions.
When the lingam is large and the yoni is small try the following positions.
