The Tabletop position is a face-to-face vaginal or anal sex position that uses a table as a prop. It gets its name because the receiving partner sits on the top of the table, or tabletop, for sex.
To get into the Tabletop position, the receiving partner should sit on a sturdy, waist-high tabletop. Their butt should be as close to the edge of the table as is comfortable, and their legs should be slightly apart to allow penetration. Their penetrating partner then stands in front of them, so they are both face to face. From this position, the penetrating partner can enter the receiving partner.
Many penetrating partners enjoy holding onto the receiving partner’s hips as they thrust or grind into them. This position gives penetrating partners even more control in the Tabletop position than they already do. The receiving partner can either embrace their partner, lean back with their hands flat on the table or lay all the way down on the table. All of these different variations on the Tabletop position will create different sensations by varying the angle of penetration during sex.
The Tabletop sex position is also known as the Torrid Tabletop position or the Love Temple position.
