Position of the Week: Starry Ride

on Dec 23, 2022

Throw out the mere expression 'seeing stars' and chase the real thing. Combining eyes-upward visibility with fantastic depth, it's the sex position for you when you want to see stars in the literal and that-was-the-best-sex-ever sense at the same time.

POTW Starry Ride


Put your festive dinner aside and let the real feast begin. The penetrating partner lies on their back on a table, with their feet braced on a chair. Their partner climbs aboard, placing their feet on the table behind their partner's shoulders and gripping the back of the chair as they ride.


This position puts all the control in the hands (and calves) of the receiving partner, while giving the penetrating partner a show that will make them quake at the sight.


Both vaginal and anal penetration fab in this position - strap on a double penetration strap-on for even more 'oh yes'.

Make it even better

We haven't forgotten about you, penetrating partner. Try wearing a butt plug with a flat base or a vibrating butt plug while you play for extra sensations.

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.
