Definition - What does The Waterfall Position mean?

The waterfall position is a woman-on-top position. To get into this position, the penetrating partner lies face up with head and torso off the edge of the bed. The shoulders might rest on the ground. The receiving partner straddles the penetrating partner with legs in front rather than legs behind.
