The Pair of Tongs position is part of the ancient Kama Sutra. If you’re intrigued by the Kama Sutra, we can help! We’ve put together a whole host of sex positions you and your other half can try – perfect if you’re looking for ways to get hot and steamy between the sheets! Don’t be put off by how tricky the Pair of Tongs position may look. Although this is one of the more ‘advanced’ sex positions, once you and your partner get the hang of it, it’ll be one you return to time and again. You do both need upper body strength, so if you’re new to the Kama Sutra we’d suggest you try one of the more straight forward ideas first.

Pair of Tongs: How to do it
This position is for the slightly more energetic and you’ll need some strength in your arms. You lie off the edge of the bed on your side, just with your calves, ankles and feet still on the mattress. You support yourself with your left arm and he holds you up from your waist. He steps over your left leg and holding your other leg up and enters you while you dangle precariously off the bed! It sounds confusing but will all come together when you get going. Just remember to enjoy it, and probably best not to attempt this one if you’ve had a drink or two. We don’t want any trips to the hospital now! If you’re trying it for the first time, then make sure you’re on a soft surface to cushion any accidental falls…

What’s great about it?
