Definition - What does Scissoring Position mean?

Scissoring is a classic lesbian sex position in which partners intertwine legs, allowing them to rub their vulvas together or against their partners' stomach, thighs, and legs for pleasure. For people who prefer external stimulation or the pleasure of friction, this position has lots of options and can be a good fit.

Kinkly explains Scissoring Position

Although this position is often stereotyped as the main sexual practice for two female partners, research shows that only about a third of lesbian women use this position. Although this is a non-penetrative position, some people choose to add a dildo or penetrative sex toy for internal stimulation.
