Less common positions

The T-square position

These positions are more innovative, and perhaps not as widely known or practiced as the ones listed above.

  • The receiving partner is on the bottom. The penetrating partner lies on top perpendicularly to them.

  • The penetrating partner lies on their back, legs spread. The receiving partner is on their back on top of the penetrator, legs spread, facing the opposite direction.

  • The penetrator and the receiver lie on their backs, heads pointed away from one another. Each places one leg on the other’s shoulder (as a brace) and the other leg out somewhat to the side.

  • The receiving partner lies on their back with knees up and legs apart. The penetrating partner lies on their side perpendicular to the receiver, with the penetrating partner’s hips under the arch formed by receiver’s legs. Sometimes called the T-square.[citation needed]

  • The receiving partner’s legs are together turning to one side while looking up towards the penetrator, who has spread legs and is kneeing straight behind the other’s hips. The penetrator’s hands are on the other’s hips. This position can be called the Modified T-square.[9]

  • The receiving partner lies on their back with the penetrating partner lying perpendicular. The receiving partner bends the knee closest to the penetrating partner’s head enough so that there is room for the penetrating partner’s waist to fit beneath it, while the penetrating partner’s legs straddle the receiving partner’s other leg. The in-and-out thrusting action will move more along a side-to-side rather than top-to-bottom axis. This position allows for breast stimulation during sex, for partners to maintain eye contact if they wish, and for a good view of both partners as they reach orgasm.

  • The penetrating partner sits on edge of a bed or chair with feet spread wide on floor. The receiving partner lays on their back on the floor and drapes their legs and thighs over the legs of the penetrating partner. The penetrating partner holds the knees of the receiving partner and controls thrusts.

  • The Seventh Posture of Burton’s translation of The Perfumed Garden is an unusual position not described in other classical sex manuals.[4] The receiving partner lies on their side. The penetrating partner faces the receiver, straddling the receiver’s lower leg, and lifts the receiver’s upper leg on either side of the body onto the crook of penetrating partner’s elbow or onto the shoulder. While some references describe this position as being “for acrobats and not to be taken seriously,”[10] others have found it very comfortable, especially duringpregnancy.

  • The penetrator straddles one of the legs of the receiver, who is lying on their side.

  • The piledriver is a difficult position sometimes seen in porn videos. It is described in many ways by different sources. In a heterosexual context, the woman lies on her back, then raises her hips as high as possible, so that her partner, standing, can enter her vaginally or anally. The position places considerable strain on the woman’s neck, so firm cushions should be used to support her.

  • The receiver lies face down legs spread on the edge of the bed and parallel to the floor, while the penetrator stands behind, holding both legs.

  • “The Rusty Bike Pump” is similar to a piledriver where penetration is achieved from above at a downward angle with the receiving partner bottom side up.
