Caution: Visiting These Temples May Incite Wild Sex in You

Celebrating sex in Indian Temples
Khajuraho, Madhya Pradesh

Many established tourist places in India, though a treat to the eyes and memorable are overcrowded and may be overrated. This is especially true when you are visiting with your love mate or going for honeymoon and just craving for an exotic and peaceful destination for secluded wild combative sex nights. And perhaps during the day, just wanna sit lazily on the beach or trudge up the hills?
What if you went to temples that celebrate sex as an integral part of life? What if you see erotica everywhere you look? Will you be or your mate will be interested? We think sure!

Why Does Some Hindu Temples Have Sex Sculptures and Architecture?

Hindu religion is one of the largest religions which is followed by millions across the globe and has its roots relating to the early inception of humans and civilization on earth. Temples of Hindu have been often denoted as the replicas of the cosmology of the universe. As per the spiritual and religious manuscripts and Vedas it has been stated that the architecture and the sculptures of a temple not only limns the cosmology of the universe, but explicitly portrays sensual material pleasures on their walls, which conveys life and beyond it, Almighty who created it

So read, pack your bag and hit the road!

The top on the list is:

1. Khajuraho, Madhya Pradesh

Khajuraho, Madhya Pradesh

No talk about erotic temple architecture can begin without mentioning Khajuraho first. While erotic sculptures make up only 10% of the artwork on the walls of the Khajuraho group of temples, it is still the most iconic name in the representation of erotica. And for centuries, the elaborate sculptures have been the centerpiece of debates and arguments about the need for such erotica on temple walls. The most accepted explanation of why “Twisting, broad-hipped and high breasted nymphs display their generously contoured and bejeweled bodies on exquisitely worked exterior wall panels” (James McConnachie) has been attributed to how Kama (lust) is an essential and integral part of the human experience.
Sculptures here range from orgies, elaborate "maithunas" (coitus) and sexual positions that require assistance by maids to hold up the woman, and even suggestive masturbation. But what is common in all the sculpted panels is how sex becomes the highest – and probably the purest – form of passion for these couples. As inspiring as these sculptures are, it is best to not replicate the positions – they are way too acrobatic we think!

2. Markandeshwar Temple, Maharashtra

Markandeshwar Temple, Maharashtra

While not very well-known, the Markandeshwar Temple, depicts women as dominating and demanding, and the representation of fellatio here stands in stark contrast to the sculpture on temples around the area. The Shiva temple is highly revered among devotees, and the sculptures on the exterior wall raise a few eyebrows because many do not understand why such erotica was made part of such a holy temple.

3. Sun Temple, Konarak Odisha

Sun Temple, Konarak

An architectural marvel, the Sun Temple of Konarak is built in the form of a chariot on wheels drawn by seven horses. Known as the Black Pagoda, the temple was built keeping astronomical positions in mind, but what is more surprising is the presence of erotic sculpture on the walls of the temple that, in some opinions, offer stiff competition to the Khajuraho group of monuments. One of the boldest sculptures here is that of a dog licking a woman’s genitalia – and guides routinely explain that the saliva from a dog was believed to cure sex-related infections. Scenes of polyandry, polygamy and lesbian love are aplenty at the Sun Temple, believed to have been put there to impress upon viewers that kama, like sanyas, was an essential part of life and needed to be embraced fully.

The contrast created by the presence of erotic sculptures here is quite brazen. Several scenes of high breasted and wide-hipped women engaged in orgies, passionate coitus, fellatio and elaborate love-making postures can seem quite shocking, but look deeply, and it is all a celebration of fertility and a liberal attitude towards the most basic of all desires.

5. Ranakpur Jain Temple, Rajasthan

Ranakpur Jain Temple, Rajasthan

It seems that sex wasn’t just celebrated in Hindu temples. The Jain temple of Ranakpur, unlike most other Jain temples, is an excellent study in the representation of sex and the position that women occupied in the psyche of the people of the times. While the temple has numerous exquisitely carved pillars and panels, the one that you and the missus should be looking for is a panel depicting several rather experimental scenes of coitus, with a central queen-like figure in the center, on a throne with a midget on her lap in an amorous position. Dedicated to Adinatha, the first Jain Tirthankara, the temple’s erotic sculptures connect the Digambara ideology with the Tantric cult.

6. Padawali Temple, Madhya Pradesh

Padawali Temple, Madhya Pradesh

The Padawali temple located in the spectacular Chambal region of Madhya Pradesh is probably the most ornate temple in the area. There isn’t an inch of stone on the temple that isn’t carved in breathtaking detail. While most of these carvings are of scenes from the Indian epics and Puranas, as well as of the Hindu trinity and scenes of mythology, there are some extremely intricate carvings of erotic imagery. The temple in fact, is known as “Mini Khajuraho” for its sculptures, but believe us when we say this, the representation of sex in Padawali is far less acrobatic and far more realistic than in Khajuraho.

The sculptures relate to Tanstrism and Occult, and have elaborate scenes of passionate "Maithuna" in Tantric traditions.
