Definition - What does The Deckchair Position mean?

The deckchair is a sex position that is so named because couples in this position resemble a deckchair. The penetrating partner in this position sits on the bed or floor and leans back, supporting themselves with their hands. The receiving partner then lies on their back between the spread legs of the penetrating partner. With the receiving partner's pelvis in front of the penetrating partner, penetration can occur.

The deck chair position may also be known as the lounge chair position.

Kinkly explains The Deckchair Position

While in this position, a pillow under the receiving partner's butt puts their pelvis at a good angle for the penetrating partner. If the receiving partner is a woman, this position is good for g-spot stimulation. The deckchair position is also an excellent position for deep penetration. Because of this, it's best for the receiving partner to control the thrusting by moving their hips or sliding gently up and back.
