Definition - What does The Straddle Position mean?

The straddle position is a relaxing position in which the receiving partner lies on their back with one leg extended. Their partner straddles their extended thigh. The other leg can either be bent at the knee, or placed on the partner's shoulder. This position has some kink to it and provides a great view for the seated partner, while still being comfortable and relatively easy to perform.

Kinkly explains The Straddle Position

Long periods of time in this position can begin to get uncomfortable for seated partner's knees, so it may not work as a long-term position for everyone. The seated partner can also brace themselves on the ground behind them for leverage.
