The arm chair position is a unique woman-on-top or vulva-owner-on-top sexual position. In this position, the vulva-owner sits on their partner’s lap with their legs resting on their partner's shoulders. From this position, the vulva-owner can lower themselves down onto their partner’s penis or strap-on.

More About Arm Chair Position

To get in the arm chair position, the penis owner or partner wearing a strap-on sits down on a bed or chair, with their legs stretched out in front of them. The receiving partner then straddles the giving partner and moves so that their legs are resting on the giver's shoulders. The receiver should lean back as they grind their hips, supporting their weight with their hands.

It can be challenging for couples to get the rhythm for the arm chair position right. However, with practice, this position can be a pleasurable way to spice up your sex life.

The receiver needs to be strong to hold themselves up in the arm chair position. The receiver's arms may tire quickly, and they may even feel pain as they fatigues. Some couples use pillows to prop up the receiver and take some of the weight. Some givers also hold on to their partners’ backs to provide support and help guide their movements.

The giver may also experience some discomfort if their partner is heavy. Performing this position with the giver in a chair or with his back against the wall can provide support.
