Position of the Week | Two Turtle Doves | Lovehoney

Tis the season for Two Turtle Doves, a beginner-friendly mutual masturbation position for couples eager to create a more intimate connection during the festive season.


Sit next to each other and take hold of each other’s hands. Keep your eyes closed and touch your lover's body, listening to their responses and letting their reactions guide you.


With your eyes closed, you and your partner can relax and focus on every touch and caress. This position also allows you to imagine your lover’s expressions and explore your inner fantasies.

Holding hands can be a form of silent communication, as every squeeze and change in grip allows you to convey your desires. You can also subtly sync your movements to feel even more connected.


Amplify your arousal by incorporating a variety of toys into your play. Hold a wand massager or bullet vibrator in one hand and use it to stimulate your (or your lover’s) clitoris, penis or nipples. Remote control toys allow one partner to take control of the other’s pleasure and add an element of surprise and excitement, as the partner being stimulated won’t know what pattern or intensity level is coming next.

Make it even better

Treat your external erogenous zones to even more stimulation with some nipple suckers or nipple clamps, increasing their sensitivity and elevating pleasure for both partners.

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.
