The Curving Knot
|The friends linger behind. One discusses the matters of
love. The master of the house, however, thinks only of his befoved who awaits him. He thinks of the 'line of jewels'
he left at the bottom of her back. This is what one calls a bite made with all of the teeth. One of the hosts recounts
how he practises the curving knot position, which demands skill and suppleness. The master of the house smiles
dreamily... Last night his beloved, as clever as a she-monkey, led him into this perilous exercise. His legs remember
it still! Each partner puts their arms into the hollow of their fences and pulls their legs towards them. Holding
each other's hands, yoni and lingam are brought closer. Reaching ecstasy in this delicate position is said to be
a token of the lovers' eternal love.
When your wife sits
with both knees drawn tight to her body
and you mirror this posture,
it is known to experts in the art of love
as Yugmapada (The Foot Yoke).
Seated erect, the lovely girl
folds one leg to her body
and stretches the other along the bed,
while you mirror her actions:
this is Yugmapada (The Feet Yoke).
Sitting erect, grip your lover's waist
and pull her on to you,
your loins continuously leaping together
with a sound like the flapping of elephants' ears:
this is Kirtibandha (the Knot of Fame).
