Position of the Week: The Wheelbarrow | Lovehoney

Challenge yourself. Start your strap-on adventures with The Wheelbarrow, a couple’s penetrative position that utilises the power of the Lovehoney BASICS Strap-On Harness Kit. With a textured, realistic dildo and three different O-rings, the giving partner takes control of the pace of play, while the receiving partner enjoys multi sweet spot stimulation.


The receiver stands with their back to the giver, who then penetrates them with their penis or a strap-on dildo. The giver holds onto their partner’s calves while the receiver leans forward onto their hands, putting their legs behind their partner’s.


A standing position that requires a lot of balance and strength, The Wheelbarrow offers direct stimulation of the G-spot and P-spot, perfect for those looking to advance their strap-on play and pegging. Incredibly versatile, and with our wide variety of strap-on kits, strapless strap-ons and suction-cup dildos, you can easily tailor this position to suit your preference.


As the giving partner thrusts, the receiver can take control of the depth and pace of penetration by bouncing their booty against the giver. You can also spice up your session with a pair of nipple suckers, for some thrilling sensory play.

Make it even easier

If you or your partner use a mobility aid, this position can be easily adapted. The giver can be seated on a sofa or a chair, and the receiver leaning forwards on a sex position wedge to reduce strain on their hands. Just ensure you have plenty of water-based lubricant within reach and consider having extra pillows if needed.

Make it even better

For the giver, a vibrating butt plug is brilliant for beginner anal play and stimulating those sensitive nerve-endings. If the giver has a penis, both partners can indulge in some mutual pleasure with a vibrating cock ring, which is great for boosting clitoral or perineal sensations during play.

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.
