Kinkly explains The Basket Position

To maintain balance in this position, the bottom partner might keep one knee bent and hold the hips of the receiving partner. In this position, the receiving partner is in control of the movements, and the giving partner receives a great view of the other partner. This position is more intimate, as it allows for kissing and eye contact.
