Definition - What does The Mermaid Position mean?

The mermaid is a sex position that allows for deep penetration via front entry. To get into this position, the receiving partner lies on their back on the edge of a table, desk, or counter top with their legs straight up in the air. The penetrating partner stands to enter the receiving partner.

Kinkly explains The Mermaid Position

To change the angle and depth of penetration, the receiving partner can place their hands or a pillow under them to raise the pelvis further. This is a relatively easy position to get into and maintain for long periods of time. The receiving partner can grip the edge of the platform to control the speed, rhythm, and depth of penetration as well.
