The 69 Position

Updated: JUNE 9, 2022

When it comes to oral sex, the 69 position is the mother of all positions. Unlike traditional oral sex, this position allows both partners to give and receive oral sex simultaneously.

To get into this sex position, one partner lies on their back in this position, while the other partner crouches or lies on top, facing the opposite direction.

The 69 position gets its name as the body positions of the two partners resemble a sideways 69. Partners of all genitalia combinations can also perform the 69 position!

Variants of the 69 position include the standing 69, sex swing 69, and the side-by-side 69.

More About The 69 Position

Mastering the 69 position can be somewhat tricky for some couples because it can be hard to concentrate on the task at hand while also receiving oral sex.

To get around this and make sure both partners are getting and giving their fair share, partners can take turns giving and receiving cunnilingus or fellatio.

A sex wedge, sex furniture, or pillows can also be positioned under the bottom partner's head and neck for added comfort and to instantly change the angle.
