Definition - What does The Tabletop Position mean?

The tabletop position is a sex position that uses a table as a prop. To get into this position, the receiving partner sits on on a sturdy, waist-high tabletop, with their butt right on the edge. The penetrating partner then enters them while standing. The receiving partner can either embrace their partner, lean back on their arms, or lay all the way down on the table for different sensations.

This position may also be called the torrid tabletop or the love temple.

Kinkly explains The Tabletop Position

The tabletop position is perfect for a naughty tryst in the kitchen. Sex on a tabletop can be exciting, not just because of the change of scenery, but also because it allows better access to the clitoris for stimulation. The receiving partner can also rest their feet or legs on the penetrating partner's shoulders, which helps facilitate deep penetration. The tabletop also offer the excitement of a standing position, but it's much less work for both partners because the table can support the receiving partner's weight, and some of the penetrating partner's as well.
