Andromache

Andromache - sex position with woman on topIn Greek mythology, Andromache was the wife of the Trojan hero Hector. According to some versions of the legend, Andromache was an Amazon – a powerful female warrior – and her name (which is pronounced “Andromaki”) literally means “she fights like a man”.

Because of her powerful, dominant nature, Andromache has given her name to a position for sexual intercourse in which the women straddles the male partner and rides on top of him. This position is also popular in Tantra, which has its roots in the female-dominant, Goddess-worshipping tradition of ancient India. The Sanskrit word for this sexual position, as used in the Kama Sutra, is Purushayita, meaning “virile behaviour”.
