Definition - What does The Padlock Position mean?

The padlock is a sexual position in which the woman sits at the edge of a waist-high piece of furniture or appliance. Tables and washing machines work perfectly for this; men who need added height may want to consider a short stool. Once the couple is in position, the woman wraps her legs around her partner's waist, supporting the weight of her body with her arms behind her.

This position is also known as the leg lock.
