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
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
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
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
"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 man’s 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 woman’s 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 woman’s 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 buttons slightly to accommodate him for maximum penetration.
Thrusting should be slow and rhythmical,
and it will soon become obvious of the woman’s pleasure with this sexual
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 woman’s 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
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.
