Position of the Week: Apple Bobbing

Much more pleasurable than dunking your head in a bucket of cold water, this whole new take on apple bobbing rewards both partners with much more than just a bruised apple.

POTW Apple Bobbing


One partner positions themselves on their knees (spread apart) on the edge of a bed or sturdy object of a similar height. The other partner kneels on the floor in front of them and holds on to their partner’s buttocks to bring their pelvis closer to their face.


The elevated position of the receiving partner’s pelvis brings them to head height for the giving partner, so they don’t have to strain their neck when treating their lover to a blow job or cunnilingus. This in turn gives each suck, lick and tease a lot more strength, control and stamina, minus the neck ache.


The receiving partner can help guide the kneeling partner’s head with their hands and tease their sensitive nipples and other touch-sensitive spots such as the ears and neck. Taking charge of a remote control vibrating love egg, vibrating butt plug or butterfly vibrator that’s worn by the kneeling partner is also a thrilling way to keep those hands occupied.

Make it even better

Everything tastes better with a squeeze of flavoured lube! Fact.
