Ballerina Sex Position

Sex Positions: Ballerina

The Ballerina sex position is a popular standing sex position that is an excellent choice for very flexible women! Women who aren’t as flexible may find this position difficult to get into and stay in though, so if you can’t hike your leg up that far, consider another position or practice stretching until you can comfortably get into the Ballerina.

How To Do It

In the Ballerina sex position, both partners are standing facing each other. The female partner raises one of her legs all the way up, resting her ankle on her lover’s shoulder. Yes, she has to be incredibly flexible to do this! He holds on to her leg with one hand and her hip with the other and is responsible for the majority of the thrusting movement.

Less flexible women can simply wrap one leg around her lovers waist – a.k.a. the Dancer sex position.

Where To Do It

Standing sex positions are awesome to do in tight spaces, like when you want a quickie in the closet at a party, or are at home and don’t want the kids to catch you.

Props You’ll Need


Difficulty Level


Her O-Meter


She’s going to be more concerned about stretching comfortably and staying upright in the Ballerina sex position, so she’s not terribly into getting an orgasm out of it. If she does get into it though, the penetration is deep enough to elicit g-spot stimulation and possible orgasms!

His O-Meter


He totally digs her leg raised like this, and if she can do the Ballerina sex position, he’ll be convinced his sex life is awesome. Guys tend to like more exotic sex positions (you know,  the ones where the woman is folded up like a pretzel in a near impossible configuration), so this is high up on his “I just want to try this” list.


Try the Ballerina sex position outside the house. Slip into a public bathroom stall and get it on there (just don’t touch anything!), or in a dressing room at the department store.
