Picture of Edge of the Bed Sex Positions

The basic edge of the bed sex position.

The person being penetrated is at the edge of the bed, with your bum right at the edge, just a little off the bed. Your partner can be on their knees or even standing in front of you depending on the height of the bed.

Pros of the Edge of the Bed Sex Position

  • In some sense this is a nice "lazy" position for the person on the bed, as you're comfortable and don't have to do a lot of moving or supporting yourself.
  • Either partner can grab onto the bed for leverage, and it provides a firm support with some give.
  • This position can also be good for either or both partner if fatigue is an issue.

Cons of the Edge of the Bed Sex Position

  • One partner is doing most of the work in this position, so you might not consider it completely equitable.
  • The partner not being supported by the bed may want to use pillows for comfort if they are on their knees.
