Definition - What does The Hinge Position mean?

The hinge is an intense rear-entry sex position that combines athleticism with deep penetration. This position provides a bit of twist on the classic doggie-style position by putting the penetrating partner on one knee. It can be a little awkward, but it also makes it possible to go super deep, which some couples love!

Kinkly explains The Hinge Position

Because both knees and elbows are on the ground here, it is important to get into this position on a soft surface. A pillow or wedge may also be used to support the partner in front and take some weight off their forearms and shoulders. Because this position is quite intense and athletic, it's often best served at the end of play.
