The flatiron or “prone bone” position is a fantastic position for deep penetration and g-spot stimulation. It combines the primal passion of doggy style with the intimacy of missionary. It allows for vaginal and clitoral stimulation and lets both partners control the depth of penetration. It’s a great view for the person on top and an amazing sensation for the one on the bottom.

What is the flatiron sex position?

In the flatiron position the woman lies face down. She then slightly lifts her hips up while keeping her legs relatively straight. The man then enters her from behind (as in doggy-style) on his knees and leans over her.  It can help to put a pillow under her hips to elevate the pelvis.

How to have sex in the flatiron position

You can choose your own adventure with this position. You can go deep and fast or slow and shallow. Run your hands along her back and up her spine. Kissing the neck and nibbling the ears adds to the fun and intimacy. With a pillow under her hips you can better control the angle to increase the g-spot stimulation and her hands are free to play with her clit. This position is also great for anal sex. The man on top can also control how much weight he places on his partner depending on whether she likes being pinned down or free to move with him.

Is the flatiron position the best for her?

The best sex position is always a matter of personal taste, but you can’t know until you try. The clitorus isn’t just located on the front of the vagina, but has deep “wings” that go into the vagina. In this position you can stimulate those wings and the g-spot. It can be modified in many ways to fit the types of stimulation you both like.

What is the difference between the flatiron and doggy style?

The flatiron involves the woman being mostly on her belly and with her legs straighter. This lets the man lay on top of her allowing for more intimate contact than doggy style. If you don’t like sitting on your knees then the flatiron sex position is your prone bone ticket to pleasure. Doggy style allows for more rapid penetration and is more dominating than the prone bone. Both are great and it’s easy to switch between the two.  A third closely related position is the “Jockey Position“. The amount of variations in these positions is astounding and exciting.
