Definition - What does Facesitting mean?

Facesitting is a sexual practice in which a person sits or hovers over a partner's face. This is often done to facilitate oral sex or analingus. It is sometimes a part of BDSM scenes, particularly Femdom scenes. The partner who sits on the other's face is usually the dominant partner, and the technique can be used to both demonstrate a dominant partner's superiority and humiliate a submissive partner.

Facesitting is also sometimes known as "Queening" particularly if a female is on top.

Kinkly explains Facesitting

While it can be an erotic practice, facesitting can also be dangerous and lead to asphyxiation. To prevent this, the top partner shouldn't sit all the way onto the bottom partner's face, but hover over it slightly instead. A Queening stool can also be used for added safety; this is a low stool with an opening in the seat.
