Working out has taken on a whole new meaning with this new position in town. Combining an upper body workout for her with deliciously deep penetration, Lift Off will get your blood pumping for all the right reasons.

Position of the week: Lift Off


She lies on her front and he approaches her from behind in a kneeling position. She shifts back onto him with her torso raised and both hands on the floor, and places her legs either side of his thighs in a stretched out position. He moves his hands to her hips for gentle support and to aid penetration.


The rear-entry style of Lift Off enables deep penetration, while the angle of penetration lends itself perfectly to targeted G-spot stimulation. Both partners can tailor the angle and height of penetration with a simple raise or lower of her arms or his kneeling position. He's also perfectly placed to make use of his hands, and can easily reach her breasts or clitoris to ramp up the sensations.

As it's a particularly engaging position for her, she may need to lower herself down onto her elbows to ease the weight of holding herself up.


Lift Off lends itself perfectly to anal stimulation or sex. If anal sex isn't for you, the addition of wearing butt plugs could heighten the sensations for both partners during vaginal sex, introducing an irresistible feeling of fullness into the mix.

Make it even better

The fact that both partners are facing away from each other draws on the sense of trust in one another, and also enhances every touch. When one sense is taken away it heightens your other senses, so why not build on this by slipping a blindfold on to one partner? You can take it in turns to wear the blindfold to explore the different roles it creates within the position, and it's also a fun introduction to the thrill of light bondage.


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).
