Definition - What does Leopard Position mean?

The Leopard Position is a rear-entry sex position for anal or vaginal sex. This sexual position gets its name because the movements of the person being penetrated resemble the movements of a leopard ready to pounce.

The Leopard Position is a medium-level sex position. It is sometimes called the Leaping Leopard Position.

Kinkly explains Leopard Position

To get into the leopard position, the partner doing the penetrating gets into a seated kneeling position and leans back slightly. They can steady themselves with their hand if they need to. This position exposes their erect penis.

The partner being penetrated then lowers themselves down onto the penis or strap-on, for vaginal or anal penetration, and leans forward. Their legs should be spread slightly apart and their feet should be near their male partner’s legs. As they lean forward, they should steady themselves with their hands on the ground or bed, so they are on all fours. Their partner can provide extra support by holding onto their hips or buttocks during sex. The person on all fours rocks backwards and forwards for sexual pleasure. The person penetrating their partner may caress their body in this position to increase their pleasure.

Unlike many rear-entry sex positions, the person being penetrated has the greatest control in the leopard position. They control the rhythm and depth of penetration. This control can be very appealing for people, who usually take a submissive role during sex. It also offers deep penetration and G-spot and P-spot stimulation. The position also naturally lengthens the vagina, which can make penetration easier and more comfortable for vulva-owners.

While the person in the seated kneeling position is typically a penis-owner, the leopard position could easily be adapted for a person wearing a strap-on.
