Position of the Week: Bound & Bend

Bound and Bend

Let your partner discover how you best like pleasure with this intimate sex position that ensures your partner takes the lead. With the help of a spreader bar, and an open mind to explore your vulnerability in the bedroom, this bondage-inspired POTW is one you can both enjoy.


The receiving partner places themselves into the classic ‘doggy position’, with knees and elbows to the floor and legs slightly parted. The giving partner kneels behind and locks their lover’s ankles into a bondage spreader bar to help them maintain their position.


Bound and Bend is great for giving partners who love visual stimulation. With the receiving partner knelt over and intimately exposed, they can enjoy getting up close and personal, exploring the scent, sight, feel and taste of their genital area. This position is also good for those who want to experiment with power play and anal play, and is perfectly angled for deeper penetration.


Use toys to take things up another level. A vibrating butt plug, string of anal beads or prostate massager are all good for dipping your toes into the exciting world of anal play. Using a massage wand, feather tickler, flogger or pinwheel lets you experiment with sensory play, while adding more into the dominant/submissive exchange.

Make it even better

Go from full-on penetration to tantalising oral – this position is perfect for switching things up dependent on your mood and preference. Throw in some lip-smacking lube, and you’ll have a pleasure fest that tastes as good as it feels.

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.
