Double penetration is a wide-ranging term that collectively refers to inserting two body parts or objects into a person for sexual pleasure. There are many different ways double penetration can be achieved, in terms of what is being inserted where and by whom. Combinations of penises, fingers, fists, tongues, sex toys (including dildos, strap-ons, butt plugs and more) can be inserted simultaneously during sex. A double penetration scene can be solo, two people, or three people (adding in more folks would potentially change the number of penetrations) and involve any combination of oral, vaginal or anal penetration.

Double penetration is not limited to any specific gender, identity or sexual orientation. Any combination of people can participate in double penetration activities. It is a fulfilling and pleasurable activity on many different levels, for both the people penetrating and those being penetrated.

A common misconception is that double penetration specifically refers to two penises of two people being simultaneously inserted into the vagina and anus of a single person. This limiting belief is widely perpetuated by pornography, in which double penetration is a significant subgenre. Frequently referred to as DP, it is often presented with one person with a penis on their back, penetrating a second person’s vagina as they face each other, with a third person on top penetrating the second person’s anus from behind. Sometimes the order is reversed and the second person faces the third person so that the first person is penetrating anally why the third person penetrates vaginally.

In reality, these too frequent depictions do not come close to covering the many different possibilities of double penetration. Because double penetration can involve so many different permutations of people, orifices and objects, there are countless different positions that can be used. In fact, many people frequently participate in double penetration activities without referring to them as such.

More About Double Penetration (DP)

Double penetration can be a formidable sexual experience that offers the potential for various different kinds of pleasure for the person being penetrated and those who are penetrating. Beyond the immediate physical enjoyment, double penetration can also be very visually and psychologically stimulating. For those who enjoy watching other people enjoy sex, double penetration frequently offers a close-up view of sexytime shenanigans. And for those testing the boundaries of sexual excitement, group sex, anal, and masturbation are still taboo and a thrill to explore.

Because double penetration may involve anal touch or possibly inserting two objects in any orifice, it is important that everybody—whether you’re playing along or with others—take things slowly. In fact, it is great to start exploring double penetration as a solo act, so that you can feel what it is like to have two objects inside you (in whatever combination) to see what positions and angles and objects feel the best. While porn might make it look easy, double penetration can be overwhelming for the receiver, and it might be challenging to focus on more than one object or person at the same time. And if you’re a penetrating partner in this adventure, be sure to check in and ask how your partner is doing throughout the experience.

Two other considerations should definitely be top of mind in double penetration situations: lube and hygiene. Additional lubrication is a must for anal penetration and a great-to-have for vaginal penetration. At the same time, it is important to remember that care should be taken when moving from one orifice to another. Penis and toys should not go from ass to mouth or vaginal without a was or changing condoms.
