Position of the Week: Strummer

by Lucy

on Jan 28, 2022

Forget about Guitar Hero, it’s time to get your riff on and progress to far more exciting orgasmic levels with the Strummer sex position.



One partner sits on a sturdy chair with their legs slightly apart, and invites the other partner to sit on them side on, with their legs draped over the side and their body leaning back into the seated partner’s arms.


The Strummer has all bases covered and is easy to adapt to suit your preferred type of intimate pleasure.

If those sweet spots are hungry for some gentle strumming, indulge in it as a penetrative position with the added benefit of full access to external erogenous zones. Or, simply hop on and enjoy a thrilling foreplay show and strokes worthy of a Slash solo.


If you opt for the penetrative version of the Strummer, a vibrating butt plug with a remote could be worn by one or both partners to achieve that sought-after feeling of fullness while your other erogenous zones are lavished with attention.

Alternatively, a vibrating strapless strap-on or hollow vibrating strap-on could be just the thing to ramp up the big O volume.

Make it even better

Alongside kisses and caresses of the neck, a little nipple play may well catapult the Strummer into a whole new league of sex positions. Try nipple suckers for gentle sucking sensations that heighten every touch, or nipple clamps for a pleasing pinch and pleasurable, weighty pull.
