Cleopatra's Delight

The woman is instructed to stand above the male on some sort of elevated surface, such as a couch, bed, two chairs, Mini Cooper hood, etc. With her legs spread wide, she gradually lowers her torso, so that her “yoni” is within reach of the man, who is standing on the floor just below her. Once the man is inside of her, the two lovers gyrate and pump to their hearts content.

This position commands the use of plenty of hands on pleasure, such as stroking each others hips and tickling each others magic buttons. His mouth with be in easy reach of her breasts and she will have full control over the amount of stimulation he can offer.

On a scale of 1 to 10 how would you rate position (1 as horrible, 10 as sexual nirvana)?

This position gets an all around solid 8

Did you have difficulty getting into the position?

There is not a whole lot of skill in getting into this position, but it will take a little bit of stamina to stay in it.

Did you feel like a pretzel? Were you able to do the motions once in position?


Any recommendations on getting either in or out of this position?

From experience I would say that using two chairs seems to work the best with this position, as it allows the man to position himself directly between her legs without any obstacle to get in his way. Make sure the chairs are stable however, and not much over 32 inches.

How long did you last in the position?

We lasted a good 10 minutes before we moved on to something else.

Enjoyment once you were in position (for the woman)?

She enjoyed the amount of control she had over the stimulation to her clitoris, breasts, and mouth. The sense of danger and vulnerability heightened her excitement and while she did not orgasm is warmed her up rather nicely to have a good one later on.

Enjoyment once you were in position (for the man)?

I personally enjoyed the animalistic pleasure of standing sex without the difficulties of attempting to connect up the parts. This position actually makes standing sex as effortless as the standard missionary.

Short Answers:

Was the position comfortable? Were you able to relax?

Man: This position is fairly comfortable for the man, although it would not be recommended for someone with a bad back. You will find yourself leaning back quite a bit in order to keep her steadily upon your hips. There is nothing relaxing about this position.

Woman: This position has absolutely nothing to do with being comfortable and relaxed for the woman. Her legs will be wobbly, she will probably get tired relatively quickly... so the pure pleasure payoff is what will keep her riding!

Would you consider this to be an intimate position (Why or why not)? Yes, this position is beyond a doubt very intimate. Her feelings of vulnerability coupled by his intense urge for raw sexual satisfaction pull the couple into each other. There has to be a coordinated effort between the two to make this position work. The woman has to place her “yoni” in the sweet spot, while the man holds his manhood at just the right angle... and if everything goes right, they both win. There is nothing like sex that offers a win-win situation for all...

Are you achy or sore after the fact?

Man: No, there is not too much exertion needed to execute this position effectively.

Woman: She said that her legs were definitely burning after the act, but they were not sore the day after.

What did the position feel like (both mentally and physically) in 50 words or less?

This position is best accomplished during a spur of the moment decision. Just grab her, throw her up between two chairs and let nature take over. The excitement is along the sames lines as impromptu standing sex, but the penetration and ease of play is much improved upon!

Did she reach orgasm?

Not until a bit later in a different position... but that is not to say that she didn't enjoy herself.

Did he reach orgasm?

No, I saved mine for a bit later myself.

Did it take longer than usual to reach orgasm?

I do think that the physical exertion causes a prolonged orgasm to some degree. But at the same time, I think for some the execution would lead to a premature one, so it all depends on the person.

Would you do this position again (why or why not)?

Hell yes, this is a great position. There is always going to be a need for great “in-the-moment” positions and this is one of the top 10 that I have ever experienced!

Any suggestions to make the position more pleasurable?
