More About The Pretzel Dip Position
The pretzel dip position combines the deeper penetration of doggy style with the intimacy of face-to-face positions. In this position, couples can gaze into one another’s eyes. Their hands are also free for caressing and stimulating the clitoris, breasts, testicles, or anus. Alternatively, couples could introduce a vibrator or a vibrating cock ring into the equation.
This position also encourages gentle and slow lovemaking, rather than vigorous thrusting. This more leisurely pace enhances the intimacy of the pretzel dip position. The penetrating partner can make sex in the pretzel dip position even slower by withdrawing their penis or strap-on dildo periodically. They should use it to stimulate their partner’s clitoris for a while, then enter their vagina again. This variation is ideal for delaying the penetrating partner's orgasm and helping receiving partners who don’t usually come through penetration alone climax.
A variation of the pretzel dip position puts both partners on their knees. If the receiving partner has their right knee forward, the penetrating partner puts their left knee forward, or vice versa. In this variation, the penetrating and receiving partners both hold on to one another as they have sex. This variation requires excellent balance, but it can be a fun alternative to shake things up.
While the pretzel dip position suits penetration, most couples know penetration isn’t essential for having fun. Many people enjoy simply grinding on one another, without penetration, in this position. This variation is excellent for clitoral stimulation.
Getting the pretzel dip position can be challenging for curvy couples, but they needn’t miss out on the fun. A variation called the standing pretzel position is perfect for people carrying a few extra pounds.
The receiving partner lies in the standard pretzel position, but near the end of the bed. The penetrating partner stands at the end of the bed and straddles the leg against the bed, as with the original position. The receiving partner can put their leg around their partner’s waist, as with the standard pretzel, or raise it to the receiving partner’s shoulder. Since this position doesn’t have as many twists and turns, achieving it is a little easier.
