The Scissor sex position can be uncomfortable for some people, as the receiving partner must rest her weight on her partner’s lower leg. Propping pillows under the receiving partner’s back, side, or hips can ease the discomfort. Also experiment with your angles, as some configurations will feel better than others.
This sex position is also ideal for sex toy play. Rather than using his penis, the giving partner can also stimulate his partner’s vagina or anus with a vibrator, dildo, or butt plug.
