The camel style position is a face-to-face sexual position. In this position, the receiving partner lies on their side. The penetrating partner straddles the receiving partner's outstretched leg to enter them.
The camel style position has many other names including the pretzel, the pretzel dip, and the camel ride. Having sex in this position is also called camelstyle.
To prepare for the camel style position, the receiving partner lies down on their side. They keep one leg outstretched and the other leg raised and either wrapped around the penetrating partner’s waist or their side. The penetrating partner straddles the receiving partner's outstretched leg and enters them.
The camel style position is very popular with women as it gives the deep penetration of doggy style with the intimacy of face-to-face contact. It also doesn’t give them the back pain of many rear-entry positions. Men also appreciate the ease with which they can set the rhythm in this position.
To vary the position, the man might try manually stimulating a female partner’s clitoris while he enters her. He might also withdraw his penis and use it to tease her clitoris before re-entering her.
While this position is traditionally performed by heterosexual couples, it can be adapted for gay partnerships and lesbians using strap-ons.
