Get Yourself Off, Subcontinental Style

A friend of mine has taken up with a British gentleman and gone bonkers for cricket. Yesterday, I introduced her and the Manfriend to one of my favorite Bollywood films, Lagaan.  It's a 3-hour saga of cricket, love and racial oppression, and a great first Bollywood movie for Western audiences to watch.  It was even nominated for Best Foreign Film at the 2002 Oscars.  It's a lot of fun and you should check it out.

Anyway, it inspired me to post about an article I stumbled on last week about using Mudras, ritual hand gestures used in yoga, Hindu and Buddhist religious practice and traditional Indian dance, for masturbatory purposes. As an example:

This is not one of the mudras suggested by the Eric Clay Ong, author of the article you can read here, but one that is easily recognizable.  Now, I have not jumped on the yoga bandwagon, and my study of Hinduism and Buddhism is not as extensive as it might be, so much of this is very new to me. But my understanding is that these hand gestures can enhance a person's masturbation by focusing spiritual energies to the task at hand.

One he does suggest is the Linga Mudra, which is "named after the divine phallus of Hinduism.  Interlace the fingers of both hands as in prayer.  Extend one thumb upward.  Encircle it with the index finger and thumb of your other hand.  Now cup your genitals and do your thing, keeping the thumb erect.  The Linga Mudra is traditionally used to strengthen the body's immune system, and when applied to the genitals it's good for sexual stamina."

fingernail trimming optional but recommended

OK, can someone tell me how I'm supposed to 'cup my genitals' with this?  If I had a cock, I'd get it, but I don't have one, and I'm a little lost.  In fact, most of the mudras suggested in the article are going to work a whole lot more effectively on men than on women.  Case in point is the Prana mudra: "the touching finger create an opening perfect for encircling the clitoris or sliding up and down the shaft of the penis."  

 provided said clitoris is the size of a penis.

Long story short, I have not succeeded in finding some deeper level of orgasmic bliss using these handshapes.  However, as I mentioned, I am not particularly practiced in such things.  I will say, though, that I sat for about 5 minutes with my legs crossed and my hands in that Linga mudra, and I definitely did feel some tinglies, though not in a sexy way.  It's supposed to increase circulation, which is just what it felt like, so I'm not willing to throw in the towel just yet. 

Yoga bunnies, if you're willing to try this, with your more experienced mudra-making hands, and tell me how it goes, I would be delighted beyond words.  Namaste!!
