Position of the Week: Sleigh Ride | Lovehoney

With your stomachs full of festive deliciousness, the Sleigh Ride is the perfect position for a laid-back-but-raunchy ride that's guaranteed to jingle those bells.


The giving partner lies on their side with both legs bent and slightly apart. The receiving partner lies on their back with their butt facing the giving partner’s intimate area, with their legs bent and placed over the giving partner’s thighs.


This position allows both partners to lie back on a bed or sofa and gently ease into play. While the giving partner is in control of the speed and pace from the side, they also have full access to the receiving partner’s sweet spots. The receiving partner also has enough room to reach forward and treat themselves to some delightful solo stimulation using their hands or a toy.


If you fancy switching it up, you can try a seated version of this position with the giving partner sitting on the edge of a bed and the receiving partner sitting on top for deeper penetration and increased intimacy.

Make it even better

Sleigh Ride is a fantastic position for targeted external stimulation, so why not add a bullet vibrator, massage wand vibrator or male masturbator to your festive wishlist, and you take the frisky festive vibes with you into the next year.

Want to add more heat to the fire? A vibrating cock ring is great if you want to share the love with someone sexy. They can also pop in a vibrating butt plug for added anal thrills.

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.
