Side by side Position

Side by side Side by side

The Side entry positions are some of the best love making positions there are. It involves little messing around or undressing and is allows for longer, slower and deeper penetration. Movement in the side entry positions are good but can be limited.

This position is ideal for woman during pregnancy or for larger females. Side entry positions are good for conceiving, especially if the woman remains with her legs drawn-back for a few minutes after intercourse.

The clitoris and anus are accessible to both partners for those who enjoy extra stimulation and arousal. All hands are free to caress each others body including the woman's breast and the man's scrotum. One disadvantage is that there is no eye contact, making it a little less romantic.

How it works:

In the side entry position both partners are laying down and can be facing each other or reversed in the Spoon position. The man gets close to his partner and enters her. Usually there will be some overlapping of the arms and legs in this position and you may find you need to be a little lower to align the groins for penetration. Both partners arms and hands are free to touch there partner all over.

There are some variations that can be done with the Side entry positions:

  • if the woman draws her knees up to her stomach she can intensify the penetration. This then turns into the Spoon position which is a great for a woman who is making love for the first time after she has given birth and is wary of deep penetration, especially if she has had an episiotomy.

  • the woman lies on her side, turning slightly on to her front and supporting her upper body with her arms on the bed. The man gets close into the back of her just as in the Spoons position, then puts his upper leg over her hips as he penetrates her.

  • penetration can be made less if the woman has her legs fairly straight.

  • the woman can open up her vagina considerably by rolling over on to her back a little and placing one leg over the upper leg of the man once he is inside of her. This is restful for the woman and can sometimes stimulate the G-spot.

  • the couple can turn facing each other while the woman draws her legs up to her chest opening them widely. The man enters her while the woman wraps her legs around his back and holds on to his shoulders with her arms. Penetration here can be restricted and it is not suitable for very overweight or pregnant people. This variations does provide a lot of body contact and allows the couple to see and kiss each other passionately.
Some disadvantages to the Side entry positions can be:
  • there is not much visualisation or freedom to kiss when in the spoons style side entry

  • movement and leverage is limited in this position and penetration can be effected
