The Flat Doggy Style position is a rear-entry sex position and a variation of the standard Doggy Style sex position. Like regular Doggy Style, Flat Doggy Style is a rear-entry sex position that allows for anal and vaginal intercourse, either with a penis or with a sex toy like Hott Love Extreme Six-Inch Petite Power 7 Function Waterproof Vibrator from Spencer's -- or both!

Flat Doggy Style Position. Doggy style but receiving partner is lying flat with their bum in the air. The penetrating partner holds a Hott Love Extreme Six-Inch Pink Petite Power 7 Function Waterproof Vibrator from Spencer's in their hand, reaching around to use it on the receiving partner's clitoris.

To get into this position, the receiving partner lies down on their stomach, rather than being on their hands and knees. The penetrating partner then kneels behind the receiving partner to slide inside.

More About Flat Doggy Style Position

The exact angle of Flat Doggy Style position will vary based on the bodies exploring it. As the illustration shows, some receiving partners may prefer to lift their hips to the sky while keeping their chest on the ground. This can allow for deeper g-spot and p-spot stimulation while simultaneously reducing how much of the penetrating partner's bodyweight rests on top of the receiver's body.

On the opposing end, Flat Doggy Style can also be a great sex position to get comfortable. The receiving partner can lie fully on the ground, face down, and the penetrating partner can lay on top of them like a weighted blanket. For a receiving partner with any type of body paralysis, the fully Flat Doggy Style position can be a great option to explore; just ensure you undertake this position with lots of open communication to ensure both partners are comfortable.

While the fully Flat Doggy Style position reduces the angles of the hips, it also reduces a lot of the muscle strain involved for both partners trying to hold this position. After all, you're both laying down flat. The fully Flat Doggy Style variation also can help reduce the depth of penetration with the receiver's legs pressed together because penetration will require sliding through the thighs or squishiness of the butt in order to reach the destination.

A penetrating partner with a vulva who is wearing a strap-on harness may fall in love with the fully-flat version of the Flat Doggy Style position for an additional reason: this position lends itself well to grinding or full thrusts. Opting for the grinding can grind the clitoris into the base of a dildo worn inside of a strap-on harness to provide pleasure for the harness wearer completely hands-free!

More About Flat Doggy Style Position

No matter which variation you choose, don't forget about the power of pillows, sex props, or sex furniture. Depending on where the Flat Doggy Style position is undertaken, the receiving partner may find various bones of their body being pretty too firmly into the floor underneath them. Pillows or folded blankets can definitely alleviate that!

If you're trying to explore the Flat Doggy Style position with the receiver's elevated hips, you might consider using a Liberator Wedge underneath the hips. This can help comfortably raise the hips and reduce strain on the receiver's lower back and legs. As the elevated-hips variation leaves the penetrating partner pushing into their partner horizontally, the additional support of a soft, padded surface ensures the receiving partner isn't stuck trying to resist the lowering of the hips by strength alone.

Don't forget to experiment with leg placement as well. The penetrating partner can kneel in-between the receiver's open knees for deeper penetration, while straddling the receiving partner's closed legs may be a good fit for those looking for shallow penetration. Either way, this position can leave the penetrating partner with a lot of control over the depth and pace. If a certain penetration depth can be painful for the receiving partner, we recommend utilizing some of these suggestions -- and the OhNut -- to ensure both partners can go into this position worry-free.

Even with these modifications, you may find that the Flat Doggy Style sex position isn't necessarily a fantastic fit for you and your partner. The position can put pressure on the receiver's knees and lower back -- and can make it harder for the receiver to breathe. For the penetrating partner, there is a lot of weight placed on the knees, and it may require a sturdy core and lots of upper-body strength. If the Flat Doggy Style position isn't comfortable for either you or your partner, don't try to "tough it out". Remember: Intercourse is all about pleasure and connection. There are thousands of other sex positions out there that will be a much better fit for your body!

Flat Doggy Style position is also one of the best sex positions out there if penetration isn't on the table. The position presses the "penetrating" partner up against the receiving partner's soft, squishy butt for delicious outercourse. Simultaneously, it leaves the "receiving" partner's hands free for self-pleasure. Alternatively, an additional sex toy (like the Hott Love Extreme Six-Inch Petite Power 7 Function Waterproof Vibrator from Spencer's) can be placed underneath the receiving partner for additional pleasure. The angles of the Flat Doggy Style position lend themselves well to clothes-on sex by grinding against one another for pleasure. No penetration required here!

If you live with any kind of chronic pain or complex disabilities, such as Cerebral Palsy, we recognize that this position may be off the table and extremely difficult and/or impossible as the penetrating or receiving partner. However, if you are disabled with limited mobility, and are comfortable with the topping partner, this position may be something you want to explore. You could even take penetration off the table entirely and just focus.
