Druids and Sex - What Can We Learn From Them?
If you think the druids can't teach you much about enhancing your sex life - Think again!
Although Druids are considered pagan by the Christian Church, many of their customs have been introduced into our society today.
The druids contribution to sex and free love is under estimated and this is what this article is all about.
The entire Christian calendar is full of Druidic holidays and this is an ideal place to start in our pursuit of druid sexuality.
There were two times of the year that specifically apply to this essay. The first is Samhuinn, from October 31st to November 2nd, and the second is Beltane on May the 1st.
Sexual Activity of druids
Samhuinn was a time where for three days, all order was allowed to break down, and there was as you would expect, uninhibited sexual activity.
For the Beltane festival, it was a time for the mating of animals and the fertility of young women.
The evenings were lit up by bonfires, wild music played, drink flowed and free-flowing spirits danced with gay abandon.
The dance and drink made the desire for sexual union between couples almost irresistible.
To discover what was actually practiced, we must look what the early Church fathers were forbidding.
In the prohibitions we discover the practices that took place.
For the first missionaries, who were for the most part, still Jewish, there was (and still is for all Orthodox Jews) one sexual position; the missionary.
The two positions you will find below, were strictly forbidden, but in truth, normal in every way and are practiced by many couples today.
During the Samhuinn there was no time for orderly and relaxed sexual encounters.
Sexual encounters proceeded quickly amongst the revellers, fueled by drink and the mood of sexual liberation.
Here are some examples of favoured druid sexual positions:
"As Does the Deer"
This was the basic and favorite Druid position for sex.
The woman would bend over and hold on to some object to support her during the mans thrusting. She would spread her legs wide apart, and the man would remove the clothing only to the side of the genital area.
With his own feet slightly spread apart (for balance,hard after a few drinks!)he would then enter her from the rear, and begin thrusting.
He would further bend over himself, across and on top of the womans back, and have his hands free to fondle her breast and/or clitoris.
The quick thrusting would last about 10 to 12 minutes, and the man would finish quickly.
Time was at a premium, and this is perhaps the original quickie position.
This is an exciting and effective position, and useful in cramped spaces, today many people use it in such places as an elevator or restroom, or even out in the open,which was practiced by the Druids at this time of un-rule or anarchy.
"Sacrifice at the Altar"
It seems the Church fathers especially found this position offensive. Perhaps the nature of it, or the name.
However, when examined from a serological and physiological point of view, it is quite effective. It is very stimulating for the clitoral area, the G-spot and AFE Zone.
The woman is placed on her back on a table or some structure that allows the man to stand in front of her, in position. The womans legs are raised half way to her chest, no more, and the man can hold on to her calfs, or under her knees.
The man then penetrates her, and she raises her buttocks slightly to accommodate him for maximum penetration.
Thrusting should be slow and rhythmical, and it will soon become obvious of the womans pleasure with this sexual position.
The man also will find he can delay his climax with this position, and the average time for copulation can be over 20 minutes, and perhaps longer.
The man has a wonderful and explicit view of the womans genital area, and she, if raising her neck slightly (and is so interested) can also see her partners actions.
This may be performed at home on a high bed, or table, if some padding (a blanket perhaps) is used for the womans comfort.
It has been reported that some models of automobiles afford the possibility as well, using the hood (engine cover) in place of a table, rock or boulder.
The druids were an extremely sexual people, with few inhibitions and the positions above (if you have not tried them) are sure to enhance your sex life and that of your partner.
