Remember Narcissus? Well this position is all about face-to-face or you can look at it as the vertical variation of the missionary position. The giver holds one of the receiver’s legs, or the leg can be propped up on a chair. What’s the greatest challenge? This intimate, penetrative position’s challenge would be accommodating height differences, so confidently wear heels or utilize the stairs if you’re the shorter partner. This position can also be considered romantic as it allows you to see your partner’s face and kiss and caress their body. Bonus points, this position makes it easier to thrust for a longer period of time, which can be more difficult as the top partner with gravity working against you. “Without having to hold up your weight, you can focus more on sensations, feel your body relaxed and have less stress and tension in your muscles,” Dr Chavez adds.
