Trust us, this position will take you straight to the top level of intimate pleasure.


The receiving partner stands with one leg raised and resting on a sofa or bed. They can lean against a wall to help them balance if needed. The giving partner crouches between their legs and nuzzles into their crotch to delight the receiving partner with their tongue and hands.


The receiving partner's standing position gives them a wonderfully erotic vista of their partner pleasuring them, as well as a feeling of empowerment. The giving partner can relish in having no-holds-barred access to their lover's most explosive of pleasure zones. Whether they choose to go to town with their tongue, digits, toys... or all three, is a thrilling decision for them to make.


If the receiving partner is into wearing strap-ons or has a penis, the giving partner can look into their eyes and perform fellatio while maintaining eye contact at all times. Super. Hot.

And get this little trick! A strapless strap-on for those with a vulva can be worn by the receiver and licked and sucked to create G-spot-loving movement.

Make it even better

A pair of handcuffs or wrist to thigh restraints will put the receiving partner at the mercy of their pleasure-giving partner, adding a thrilling power play dimension to the position.

The giving partner can also up the excitement and pleasure levels by accessorising their oral or fingering skills with a vibrator or stroker, depending on the genitalia of the recipient.

Alternating stimulation between toys and tongues or fingers can build to an incredible crescendo. If the receiving partner is wearing a blindfold, it can further heighten the anticipation of what's to come next.

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.
