The Butter Churner position is an advanced vaginal or anal sex position. While it's unclear where it originally came from, it gained attention in 2020 when "Love Island" contestant Callum Jones declared it his favorite sex position.
To get into this position, the receiving partner should first warm up with some stretches because it requires a fair amount of spinal flexibility. Practicing yoga can also improve flexibility and make this position easier. In fact, the Plow Pose in yoga is very similar to the receiving partner’s position in the Butter Churner, so mastering it can be good training.
Once warmed up, the receiving partner lies on their back with their legs raised above and behind their head. The penetrating partner then squats and penetrates the receiving partner from above.
The thrusting motion in this position looks like making butter in an old-fashioned butter churn, which is how this position got its name.
This sex position puts the penetrating partner in total control; they can adjust the intensity and depth to their own taste. At the same time, receiving partners who love feeling dominated will enjoy letting go.
The Butter Churner position also stimulates dopamine production in the brain. This feel-good chemical increases feelings of pleasure and connection during sex. This connection is further increased by the position, which encourages partners to look at one another during sex.
As it is not the easiest position to get into and maintain, it may also be a great fantasy image to keep in mind, rather than a regular "go-to" position. Similar sensations for the giver can be achieved with a high quality masturbation sleeve.
The Butter Churner may also be known as the squat thruster because the penetrating partner’s movements resemble squat thrusts during a workout.
