Definition - What does Happy Scissors Position mean?

The happy scissors sex position is a simple, missionary-style position that provides a little more excitement and visual appeal. To get into this position, the receiving partner should get on their back with hips elevated. The penetrating partner may kneel between the legs of the receiving partner.

The happy scissors sex position is a great position to add sex toys into as the receiving partner has both their hands free. For example, in the image below, the receiving partner is using the Satisfyer Curvy 2+ to stimulate their clitoris while their partner penetrates them. The receiving partner could also stimulate their breast or nipples whilst in this position as well.

Kinkly explains Happy Scissors Position

Either partner can hold the reclined partner's ankles here, however, it may require great flexibility from the receiving partner, if they choose to hold their own ankles. It may also be helpful to put a pillow or wedge under the reclined partner's hips. This will keep them elevated and make things more comfortable. In addition to providing a very sexy view for the kneeling partner, the happy scissors sex position is great for deep penetration.

The happy scissors position is also a great position to use a strap-on!
