Position of the Week: Hold the Pose

What’s squat to like? Work it with Hold the Pose, a beginner-friendly solo play position destined to make your anal frolics picture-perfect. Just pull out your favourite suction-cup dildo and get your camera face on. Ready, and... action!


Stick your suction-cup dildo to a sturdy, flat surface. This could be the floor, a chair, or a mirror. Stand over it with your feet shoulder-width apart, then slowly lower yourself onto the dildo. If you find squatting difficult, rest your hands against a wall or a bed to keep your legs nice and balanced.


This squat-like position allows you to easily control the depth and speed of penetration, so you can spoil your sweet spots with sensational anal pleasure. With your hands free, you can stimulate your other erogenous zones, such as your nipples and genitals.


If you’re new to anal masturbation, it’s a good idea to start off small. Slowly ease yourself into play by gently inserting your finger or a petite butt plug, so you can discover the depth and speed you enjoy best. If you’re more advanced in your anal adventures, try one of our Lifelike Lovers. These boast realistic features and come in a variety of different sizes, so they’re perfect for gradually increasing your appetite for anal penetration. Always make sure you use plenty of water-based anal lubricant for smooth insertion and long-lasting glide.

Make it even better

If you have a penis, you could use a vibrating cock ring, a stroker or a pocket pussy for some tantalising dual stimulation. If you have a vulva, add in a bullet vibrator, clitoral suction toy or rabbit vibrator and send unparalleled pleasure directly to your clitoris or G-spot. Nipple suckers or clamps are also great if you’re a fan of nipple play.

Not the position for you?

We're working to make sure that everyone is represented on our website, regardless of who you love, so we'll be using a variety of gender depictions in our Position of the Week posts. This will include straight, gay, lesbian, and gender neutral couples, but all positions will have details in the description of how to make them work for your own relationship dynamic.
