Position of the Week: The Thigh's the Limit

Grab ahold of those thighs and ride your way to a yee-haw-inducing orgasm with this variation of the well-known cowgirl sex position.

Position of the Week: The Thigh's the Limit

With minimal need for flexibility and a shedload of potential, The Thigh's the Limit is indeed limitless when it comes to satisfying and growing your intimate pleasure.


The giving partner lies on their back with their knees raised and their feet positioned flat on the floor. The receiving partner climbs on top and facing away from the reclining partner, straddles them and holds onto their knees while leaning onto their thighs for support.


The horizontal partner gets a fantastic view, while the 'riding' partner gets to take control and set the pace and rhythm.

If the receiving partner is used to taking on a more submissive role in the bedroom, The Thigh's the Limit is a great position to ease them into being the one in control. Any inhibitions they may have about being the one in control can be eased by the lack of eye contact, allowing them to truly lose themselves in the moment.


Have fun exploring the array of different motions and angles this position offers up, be it moving up and down, grinding or leaning forwards or backwards.

Make it even better

Add the extra pleasure potential of four free hands into the mix and you'll start to truly understand why the sky (or should we say thigh?), really is the limit with this position. The top partner can ride one-handed to free up their other hand to take hold of a Wand Vibrator to tease and massage numerous external hot spots, or simply hand it over to the reclining partner to work their magic.

Looking for something a little more targeted? Suction Vibrators are designed to replicate the feeling of oral sex, which works a treat on clitorises or nipples, while adding a whole new dimension of sensation to the position.

Not the position for you?

We're working to make sure that everyone is represented on our website, regardless of who you love, so we'll be using a variety of gender depictions in our Position of the Week posts. This will include straight, gay, lesbian, and gender neutral couples, but all positions will have details in the description of how to make them work for your own relationship dynamic.
