Utilize the couch for comfort and stability in the Take it for a Ride position. Reminiscent of the popular Person-on-Top position, Take it for a Ride utilizes the added elevation of a couch to reduce strain on the penetrating partner’s knees and make the entire position more comfortable.
To get into this sex position, the penetrating partner should lay on a couch with the majority of their body on the couch. This may press the penetrating partner’s head firmly into a couch cushion. The penetrating partner’s legs or feet should hang off the edge of the couch. The receiving partner then straddles the penetrating partner’s hips to ride on top.
More About Take it for a Ride Position
The success of the Take It for a Ride sex position will hinge on the size of your couch and how well it fits with your bodies. A short loveseat, for example, may be too small for tall partners. A shallow couch with no depth may not have enough space for larger-bodied individuals to use it. In an ideal world, the couch you choose will be large enough for the penetrating partner’s body to be entirely supported from the hips up while their lower half extends past the cushions with feet flat on the ground.
The position may be perfect for a penetrating partner who doesn?t have lots of ability to thrust independently due to disability and/or chronic pain conditions.
This “ideal” position allows for the most leverage during intercourse. With the penetrating partner’s feet grounded, they’re able to push upwards during each thrust. The position also allows them to brace their core — which may be necessary if the couch is particularly plushy.
If the couch is too shallow for the penetrating partner to lay out at an angle, consider having the penetrating partner lay parallel on the couch — as if they were using it for a nap — to get into a position that looks like the Squat Position. If there isn’t enough space on the couch for both of the receiving partner’s knees to rest alongside the penetrating partner’s hips, the receiver can leave one foot flat on the floor right in front of the couch to still achieve this position.
