Definition - What does The Ship Position mean?

The ship position is a delicate, balance-oriented sex position that provides challenge and intimacy. In this position, the receiving partner sits cross legged on top of the giving partner, but faces the side of the body for a unique angle of entry. The partner on top can then rock back and forth and move gently in ways that feel good to both partners.

Kinkly explains The Ship Position

Because of the sideways entry, the ship sex position can be challenging. It is important to be very careful when lowering into this position, as it could bend or put uncomfortable stress on the penis. The best thing about this position is that it puts the partner on top's clitoris and anus right at the level of each of her partner's hands.
