This sex position is perfect for a female blended orgasm, which refers to orgasm by multiple simultaneous stimulations. During vaginal penetration in the Bridge Pose, her partner has easy access to pleasure her clitoris, labia (which is the female equivalent of a scrotum, and is very sensitive), and even breasts. 

I especially love to recommend this position for anal penetration, as her lover can simultaneously pleasure her vagina, clitoris, labia, and breasts. Keeping the booty relaxed in Bridge Pose helps to relax the anus, and more easily receive pleasure during penetration. 

Men who practice anal penetration can reap similar Bridge Pose pleasures, by enjoying simultaneous stimulation of his penis and scrotum.

Bridge Pose for Her (Setu Bandha Sarvangasana)

  • Lay on your back with your knees bent, and your feet planted next to your partner's hips. 

  • Point your perineum directly toward your partner. 

  • Keep your shoulder blades together and your arms flat on the ground. 

  • Gently lift your hips by pressing your feet into the ground, keeping your booty muscles relaxed. 

  • You can place a pillow under your hips, if you’d like added support.

This sex position also helps to assuage cramping that many men experience while pumping vigorously. The Thunderbolt Pose requires a bending in the hips to keep the perineum pointing down. By using his pelvis for thrusting, rather than gripping the glutes, men can relax into the pleasure of penetration, without overworking their muscles. He can also try Up-Down Thrusting instead of In-Out Thrusting for more sensual pleasure with less effort.

Thunderbolt Pose for Him (Vajrasana):

  • Begin by kneeling in between your partner’s legs. 

  • Keep your knees directly under your hips, and your ankles directly behind your knees. 

  • Curl your toes under. 

  • Gently bend in your hips, sitting back onto your heels with your perineum pointing directly down. 

  • You can place a pillow under your ankles or on top of your hips, if you’d like added support.

The face-to-face nature of this position allows for sensual connection even beyond the point of penetration. Tantra teaches us that eye contact can be a highly erotic exchange of energies. I love that this position allows lovers to gaze into each other during anal penetration! You can also try speaking your desires aloud while locking eyes with your partner. Adding aural and visual dimensions to your intimate experience can take your pleasure even deeper
