The Back Lift Sex Position is a penetrative posture that can be incorporated into anal or vaginal sex. With the receptive partner‘s hips and pelvis in the air, the insertive partner‘s penis (or strap-on!) can penetrate even deeper — leading to maximum g-spot or prostate pleasure.

More About Back Lift Position

The beauty of the Back Lift Position is its versatility. As a bodyweight position, it’s suitable for nearly anywhere (make it count next time you and your playmate hit a quiet spot on the beach)! Plus, it offers a reasonably painless degree of difficulty for Partner B. If the position is accessible to you, it provides a comfortable angle of entry and it can be easily modified to make Partner A’s role more accessible.

Partner A’s upper body strength is going to give you a great advantage in this position — they’re tasked with creating a solid, locked-in reverse pushup; so the steadier they can hold themselves, the more you’ll get out of every thrust. However, if holding this pose is (or becomes) too difficult independently, you can make it easier by sliding a short stool or table under Partner A’s lower back. We also recommend having consistent check-ins about comfort, pain and ability level.

For Partner B, this position is all about angling themselves correctly between their partner’s legs (if they are able!) and finding the correct working height to tuck in and thrust away. You can place pillows or cushions underneath Partner B’s knees for increased comfort.

To take the Back Lift up a notch, Partner B might use their hands to play with their partner’s nipples. Alternatively, spice up the visual with a mouth plug. If you are a wheelchair user or can’t attempt this position, you can still have fun with your partner’s mouth and nipples!
