The Splitting of a Bamboo position is part of the ancient Kama Sutra.

Have you found yourself intrigued to try the Kama Sutra but worried it's too tricky and difficult to master? Don't be put off by thinking it's only for the experienced, there are many Kama Sutra positions you and your other half can try that won't end in a trip to the hospital!

Ok ok, so 'Splitting of a Bamboo' might sound a tad scary, but don't worry. This one is nothing to be scared of. In fact, chances are you've already tried something similar in bed with your partner without even realising!

It's also worth noting that as you're inclined towards the downward position, the Splitting of a Bamboo position is a great way to get pregnant if you and your other half are trying.

Splitting of a Bamboo: How to do it

This is the basic man-on-top position but with a bit of a difference. You raise one leg up in the air and hold it by his ear or rest it on his shoulder - you can even swap legs throughout if you're feeling adventurous. This will allow for deeper penetration - all the better for you!

What's great about it?

You just get to lie back and relax - he does all the work. We're not saying you might want to do this every night (after all, we are totally relying on the 'sex is a great workout' justification when we don't want to go to the gym, and we're not gonna burn many calories on our backs!). But now and then it's nice to let your partner take control and enjoy the ride!

Psst... Don't forget to try out some other Kama Sutra positions!

thats gross


i'm so sexy!


I think I may have tried most of these in all my 42 years. I do have a couple favorites though.This being one of them. Remember guys. Sex is in your mind for the most part. Always make each other feel desireable. Mind and body.

this is the best for women who are still trying to fing thier g-spot. thats how i found mine.


The Spitting of a Bamboo is good but try this : as you see in the picture above the leg of the female that is raised...try resting it on the male's forehead! It may look strange but allows him to feel more steady and he can kiss the underside of your ankle or suck your toes!


this position s awesome for the ladies. they can sometimes hit the G-spot and it's good for average or well endowed


oh this looks interestin might have to try it ha! my partner would love it. i still prefer congress of the crow aka '69'. x
