The Tip of Your Tongue: Oral Sex Positions that Take Serious Balance

Oral sex positions are our favorite thing to write about, simply  because there are so possibilities – you can really let the creative juices flow, so to speak.

That’s not to say that straying from the receiver-lying-on-their-back configuration won’t require some finesse – not to mention strength and balance – but that can be half the fun! Below, we explain 3 of our favorite and most ambitious positions for oral pleasure.

The Golden Apple

Difficulty: 3/5

With the bottom of the receiving partner firmly in their partner’s hands, their pleasure is front and center. The receiver’s attention, however, will probably be on how sore their arms are getting and how precarious their balance is.

We highly recommend trying this on a bed – and a pillow on the bottom partner’s lap isn’t overkill either. However, won’t your yoga teacher be proud of how open your shoulders are?

The Bow Down

Difficulty: 4.5/5

It so happens that performers of cunnilingus don’t usually get stuck in an uncomfortable position as often as, say, someone giving a blow job – because seriously, that hurts your knees.

Enter the Bow Down oral sex position. Your partner will be so impressed with your hand-stand skills (using a wall isn’t cheating) that they will have to bow at the waist in respect…before lavishing you with oral attention.

The Smile Driver

Difficulty: 5/5

Look, we’re not saying don’t try this at home, but this position comes with a ‘Handle with Care’ warning. Serious strength is needed from the person holding their partner, and serious trust from the person being held.

But since we know that you care to dare, remember to clear away any breakables, have a safe word in case anyone gets a bit tired, and first place trophy to those who can boss this level of oral.
