Position of the Week: Stroke at Midnight | Lovehoney

Indulge in some frisky foreplay while the fireworks go off with Stroke at Midnight, a wonderful way to warm up before penetrative play. This position will have you reaching for the stars, as your lover strokes your sensitive sweet spots before the clock strikes twelve.


The receiver lies on their side on a bed, on a sex position wedge, or on the floor, with both knees slightly bent. While one leg rests on the bed, the other is raised towards the ceiling. The giver kneels with their back upright, straddling the receiver’s horizontal leg, with the receiver's other leg resting against their shoulder.


This position allows you to take it slow and puts the giving partner in control of their partner’s pleasure. The giving partner gets a VIP view of their lover’s facial expressions, as they stroke, rub, and tease their hot spots.


As you get into a smooth and comfortable rhythm, the giving partner can grab the receiver’s right leg or right arm, pulling them into a sensual embrace. This also allows you to introduce some shallow penetration into your play, as the giver has even better access to their lover's internal hot spots.

If the receiver starts to feel discomfort in their legs, the giver can place a pillow under their knee or hip, providing additional support and comfort. The giver can also adjust the angle of their body by leaning backwards or forwards, until both partners find what feels most satisfying.

Make it even better

Invite some gratifying guests to your NYE party with a bullet vibrator or massage wand vibrator. A remote control couple’s vibrator is also perfect for delivering sensational stimulation for two, while also allowing one partner to take control of the other partner’s pleasure at the touch of a button.

Want more than a midnight kiss? A vibrating cock ring is great for stimulating those sensitive nerve-endings and sharing the love with your partner. You can also pop in a vibrating butt plug for amazing anal thrills.

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.
