Position of the Week: Back in the Saddle

Back in the Saddle is a very intimate position that encourages physical communication and frees up both partner's hands for extra stimulation of her sensitive spots during penetration. Nice and easy with maximum pleasure and intimacy, it'll feel oh-so-good to get back in the saddle and ride again.

Position of the Week: Back in the Saddle


He kneels with his knees together and she straddles him, placing her knees either side of his with her back to him, edging onto him in a seated position.


The position allows for a wide range of penetration depths and angles to be explored as she can raise and lower herself, and lean further forwards or backwards with support from him. Think about the range of movement of someone riding a horse - from a slow seated trot to a lean-forward-to-go-faster gallop - and you'll have this position nailed. Both the A-spot and G-spot can be targeted with simple adjustments, and his and her hands are completely freed up to set to work on external stimulation at the same time, whether her clitoris, breasts or caresses to her neck or earlobes.


Slip a finger vibrator onto his or her finger to turn it into a vibrating pleasure digit, with unbound access to all of those hungry nerve-endings. Up the pleasure levels even more by applying a little orgasm gel to her clitoris and/or nipples before play commences. Trust us, she'll be singing from the rooftops.

Make it even better

Why not send both of your pleasure levels soaring by adding a couples vibrator into the mix? He too can then indulge in some intense vibrations. We-Vibe do a popular selection of couples vibrators that can be worn by her during sex and controlled via a remote to give both partners the option of taking charge of the vibration settings.


This position can be adapted for female-female couples with the use of a strap-on dildo. It's also a great position to try for anal sex (and add a male masturbator into the mix if the receiver has a penis).
