No desire for another man on the part of woman and for another woman on the part of man should be there at the time of intercourse. Both should be free from anger, grief and hunger. The female should be in a supine position.Improper positioning can result in Vata vitiation .Cold water shower is necessary for the woman after the intercourse.
