Definition - What does Lady Godiva Position mean?

The Lady Godiva sex position is an oral sex position that is designed specifically for cunnilingus. The giving partner lies down on their back, head near a wall or headboard. The receiving partner then straddles her partner's head, the vulva hovering over their mouth, and supports herself by placing her hands on a wall or headboard. This position gives the partner on the bottom much easier access to the female partner's clitoris, vulva, and vagina if fingers are used for manual stimulation.

The Lady Godiva position is also known as the hovering butterfly.

Kinkly explains Lady Godiva Position

The Lady Godiva sex position puts the woman in more control of oral sex than the traditional oral sex position, as she can raise and lower herself over her partner's mouth for lighter or more intense stimulation. Her partner can also stick their tongue out and hold it still, which gives her free reign to grind against it however she likes. This position enables the female partner to grind her hips for stimulation of her clitoris against the tongue or she is enabled to simply slide her pelvis back and forth, dragging her clitoris across her partner's tongue.
