Definition - What does The G-Whiz Position mean?

The G-whiz position is a variation of the missionary position. Like the original missionary position, the G-whiz position is a face-to-face position which suits vaginal sex. The placement of the receiving partner also makes it well-suited to anal sex.

The G-whiz position takes its name from the positive affirmation “Gee whiz.” This phrase shows wonder, enthusiasm, and excitement, all qualities this sexual position provides. The position’s name also refers to the G-spot, the small and sensitive area on the front wall of the vagina which this position famously stimulates.

To get in the G-whiz position, couples start in the missionary position. The receiving partner lays on their back on a bed or another flat surface. The penetrating partner kneels between their thighs. The receiving partner then raises their legs and rests their calves on their partner’s shoulder. This elevates the penetrating partner’s buttocks off the bed. The penetrating partner leans forward slightly, placing their hands flat on the bed for support, for entry. The penetrating partner has most of the control in this position. They thrust forward, controlling the depth and pace of penetration.

The G-whizz position is an alternative spelling for the G-whiz position. It is also called the anvil position and the dragonfly position.

Kinkly explains The G-Whiz Position

Sex in the G-whiz position is an excellent way to stimulate the G-spot. That’s because raising the legs narrows the vagina, helping any penetration target this sensitive area.

Many people love the G-spot stimulation the G-whiz provides. However, the G-spot is so sensitive that hard thrusting against it can be uncomfortable. Penetrating partners can give their partners a better sexual experience by thrusting gently at first, then rocking with their partner. Rocking in an up-or-down or sideways motion should create the kind of pleasurable G-spot stimulation many people love.

Adding a pillow or wedge underneath the receiving partner’s backside changes the angle slightly and shortens the vagina. This makes G-spot stimulation even easier. This variation also stimulates the A-spot. A strong penetrating partner could also lift their partner’s hips for a similar effect. If penetrating partners press on the receiving partner’s lower abdomen as they thrust, this position also stimulates the clitoris.

While the penetrating partner typically has more control in the G-whiz position, some variations can even up the power balance. A receiving partner can take more control by placing their feet on the front of their partner’s shoulders or on their chest. These variations both let the receiving partner adjust the speed and depth of their partner’s thrusting. As receiving partners have their hands free, they can stimulate their clitoris or penis while their partner thrusts. They can also caress their partner’s body from this position.

The G-whiz position is fairly easy to master. However, some receiving partners find it takes some muscular endurance. If they are tiring, they can put one of their legs down to make the position easier. Alternatively, the penetrating partner can grab their partner’s legs for added support.

The angle of penetration can also feel strange and even uncomfortable at first. Couples should start slow, then gradually build their momentum to make sex in the G-whiz position pleasurable.
