Definition - What does The Cross Position mean?

The cross sex position gets its name because partners form a cross or "T" with their bodies. To get into this position, the man lies on his side, while the woman lies perpendicular to him with her legs raised. After penetration, she then lowers her legs so that her knees are bent over her partner's waist and thighs.

Kinkly explains The Cross Position

While in this position, it is easy for both partners to reach the woman's clitoris in order to rub it or stimulate it with a vibrator. The cross is not only for vaginal intercourse; it can be used for anal sex as well. This position also provides an way to segue into other sex positions, such as the spoon or scissors position.

Unlike many other sex positions, this position requires very little stamina or strength. It's a great option for when one or both partners are tired but still want to have sex.
