Again, two pages of the same Persian manuscript showing how to make love in different positions. The top one is the depiction of a couple engaged in the butterfly position or modified missionary position while the bottom one again is focused on participants facing each other on similar fashion. The receiving partner lies on her back with legs apart, while the penetrating partner lies on top.
