Scissors Sex Position

Sex Position: Scissors

The Scissors sex position is an exotic sex position that is easy to do and is a great sex position to use when others won’t work, like during pregnancy.

How To Do It

The male partner lies on his side on a bed, and lifts one of his legs so that his legs are wide open. His partner lies on her back or side perpendicular to him, straddling his leg and thigh that is lifted so her groin is pressed against his and he is able to penetrate her. He can grasp one of her legs and she can support her weight on her arms to help with thrusting.

The Scissors sex position requires so much space that you’re better off doing it in the bed. While the floor will work, the bed is certainly the most comfortable option. If you do decide to do it on the floor, make sure you have plenty of blankets and pillows! It’s also a fun sex position to do outdoors on a picnic blanket if you have enough privacy!

Props You’ll Need

Blankets and pillows depending on where you’re at.

Difficulty Level


Her O-Meter


She likes the Scissors sex position because it’s exceptionally easy for her to get clitoral stimulation. She can grind her clitoris up against his thigh, and with some lube, it can feel absolutely fantastic. That, coupled with the unique angle of g-spot stimulation, can make the Scissors sex position extremely orgasmic for her! Although this is an “exotic” sex position, it actually works quite well during pregnancy, when a woman isn’t able to lie flat on her back in the later stages of pregnancy and can’t be on top when she gets bigger.

His O-Meter


He likes being able to watch her get off in the Scissors sex position, and the angle of penetration makes sex feel different and new for him too. This is a great sex position to use if you’re looking for a fairly easy to accomplish exotic sex position!


This is a great position for her to reach down and stimulate her clitoris during sex either with her fingers or a good clitoral vibrator.
