Kama-Sutra or position abuse

Is Kama-Sutra spent fashion? It’s possible. Since 2004, Google’s research associated with this word have been divided by 15 in France, and by 10 in the world. No particular event associates with this tumble: the curve collapses slowly and inexorably. Just like collapse our passion for sexual positions: interest divided by 40, flat encephalogram.

The youngest will probably have trouble believing it, but when I was a teenager (RIP the 1990s), the positions were the big deal. We traded the stories (largely imaginary) of our sexual prowess: how much were there positions, found in which magazine, interviews in which movie?

Including in the guardians of contemporary pornography: on Pornhub as on Youporn and Xvideos (the three largest platforms of X), there is simply no category related to sexual positions.
