Position of the Week: Sitting Pretty

This is the Queen Bee of oral sex positions. It puts her in complete control, while the partner in the supine position gets full access to her most sensitive erogenous spots, including the external vulva and clitoris.

Position of the Week: Pretty Pretty


One partner lies flat on their back and invites her to straddle their face, with her knees positioned either side of their head.


The default position for women to receive oral sex is lying down, which makes Sitting Pretty all the more exciting. The horizontal partner can lavish her with delicious licks, sucks and kisses, reading her body language to learn what is really hitting all of her favourite spots. She can grind or move her body back and forth over their face and aim for a body-trembling, almighty climax.


By asking her partner to stay completely still, with their hands by their sides and nothing but their tongue out, she can experiment with different grinding motions and movement, and truly embrace sitting in the power seat. If their hands feel idle, they could indulge in a bit of self-pleasuring with a stroker or vibrator.

Make it even better

Fancy adding a bit of extra-pleasurable bum fun into the oral mix? By leaning forward and resting on her elbows in a crouched position, the supine partner can access both her vulva and anus to introduce rimming to the oral pleasure show - just be sure to stick with one or the other to avoid transferring bacteria between the two.

It also creates the perfect position for him to remove anal beads from her bum at the point of climax for super-intense sensations.

If the bum fun doesn't appeal, she can direct thrilling vibrations from a bullet vibrator straight to her clitoris and/or nipples to complement the oral endeavours. Pleasure-overload is definitely on the menu.

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.
