History of Sex - India
India has a history full of sensual language, images and sculpture all over their temples and anciet scripts. India is the birthplace of the Kama Sutra, the Great Raja Raja and the Taj Mahal!
Kama Sutra or the "desire guide" as it roughly translates has the instruction for sensuous relationships, love, marriage and the sexual fantasy of satisfaction written through the Hindu religion. There are 5 sexual sitting positions, 7 standing ones, 8 rear entry, 4 with the woman on top and 9 with the man on top. This guide has been translated into several different languages, has been integrated into yoga asanas, therapy, and many illustrated books and videos.
The Great Raja Raja was an ancient ruler whom made hundreds of temples to rectify his huge war
efforts in order to reincarnate into something somewhat decent. The lost erotic temples were discovered and on their walls were hundreds of thousands of statues of sensual positions, orgies, gods, dancing women, naked couples and acts of sexual pleasure. Shocking to most these images were a pilgrimage to the god Shiva and celebrated life, love and the pleasures of creation.
The Taj Mahal, one of the most beautiful buildings in the world and one of the seven wonders was
made in honor of the love of a woman. The ruler Muntaz Mahal was madly in love with his favorite wife, Shah Jahan and erected the building as a memorial to her after she passed giving birth to their 14th child in 1631. At the top is a lingam or a phallic symbol, which was religious to the people of India. The inside is covered with beautiful carvings and inlaid gems cut into flowers and decorative art. This was the depth of his love for his wife and the many children they had shows how much they made love on a regular basis.
India has a passionate history full of cultural rituals, values and are very open about the way they express it through their heritage and customs.
