Position of the Week: Quench

Quench your thirst and lavish your lover with a banquet of tongue action. This up-close-and-personal oral position puts the receiver in a position of power, as they sit directly above their partner’s face. Quench delivers an irresistible combination of sensation overload and allows you to play with power roles.


The giver lies on their back, on a bed or on the floor. The receiver straddles their shoulders and positions their thighs on either side of the giver’s head in a snug embrace. The receiver can hold onto the giver’s thighs to guide them in closer.


With the receiver in a deliciously dominant position, Quench is the perfect position for exploring a Dom/sub scenario. It also offers very intimate access to your partner’s sweet spots, as eye contact can be maintained while the giver goes to town on delivering pleasure to the receiver’s vulva or anus.


The giving partner’s hands are free to roam to the receiving partner’s external erogenous zones, while their tongue is doing its thing. Intense, targeted vibrations with the addition of a finger vibrator or wand vibrator will give the receiver explosive sensations.

Alternatively, either partner could wear a vibrating butt plug or vibrating love egg with a handy remote control to introduce internal pleasure. Who takes charge of the remote is probably for the Dom to decide...

Make it even easier

If you use a mobility aid, this seated position is great for you, particularly if you have difficulties with balance or standing for too long. Just ensure you have plenty of water-based lubricant or water-based anal lubricant within reach and if needed, consider having extra pillows on hand if you need more support.

Make it even better

Explore the dynamics of a Dom/sub relationship by switching roles and try restraining the giver’s arms and legs with an under-mattress restraint. This will put the receiver in complete control and encourage the giver to focus solely on the pleasure they can deliver with their licks, sucks and kisses.

Additionally, why not enhance the pleasure platter even further with an oral sex snack such as a flavoured lubricant. With so many tempting flavours on offer, you’re sure to find one that makes your Quench session extra mouth-watering.

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.
