Kinkly explains The Headlong Position

To get into this position, the bottom partner hangs the head and torso off the edge of the bed supported by the arms. The hips should still be on the bed. The other partner then enters from the behind. The position has been reported to increase feeling during intercourse due to the increased blood flow to the head. The position supports rapid movements back and forth.
