Position of the Week: The Butterfly Effect


So you wanna play with magic? Sit comfortably on a bed, or on a mat on the floor. Put the soles of your feet together so that your knees are spread in a butterfly-like shape. Use your free hands to pleasure yourself in any which way you choose to.


Hard to resist, so touchable, the seated position of The Butterfly Effect means you can easily reach your clitoris, penis or testicles, as well as other external erogenous zones such as the nipples. It’s also fantastic for G-spot and P-spot stimulation, if you fancy adding a toy into the mix.


You can introduce a vibrating butt plug or G-spot vibrator to transform this position into an internal flutter of sensation, while indulging your external hot spots at the same time. Alternatively, give your hands a little help in satisfying those hungry nerve-endings with the addition of a stroker, or treat yourself to a sheet-clenching roar with a clitoral suction toy. It's in the palm of your hand now, baby.

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

Experiment with the angle of your knees and distance between your heels and pelvic areas to achieve different sensations and discover what feels best. You can also take full advantage of the tension created in your pelvic floor muscles by clenching down on them as you edge your way to orgasm. Ignite the light with a little hot ‘n’ cold temperature play by adding warming or cooling lubricants to really ramp up the excitement.
