The Pretzel sex position is an enjoyable man on top position, where you can relax and let your man do pretty much all of the work. It’s one of the less exotic positions from over 100 that you will find in our Sex Positions Guide here.
To perform the Pretzel, you’ll need to lie on your side in the recovery position just like in the demonstration above. Then you need to raise your top leg a little bit towards your chest and put your top arm either in front or behind you to stay in position. You can keep your lower leg fairly straight and feel free to position your lower arm however you like. Your man then needs to straddle your straight leg while on his knees and remain upright and start thrusting into you. You won’t be able to do anything in this position so you can just relax and take it easy.
WHAT THE GIRL DOES IN THE PRETZEL POSITION
Like I just said, you don’t need to do anything at all in the Pretzel position. You just need to relax. If you want though, you can use one of your hands to start masturbating yourself and massaging your clitoris to help yourself climax. If you are having anal sex with your man, then you can finger yourself too.
WHAT THE GUY DOES IN THE PRETZEL POSITION
Your man will be doing almost all the work. He can rest his hands on the bed to make it easier to thrust into you or he can put his hands on your waist/leg. If you want him to thrust deeper into you, then your man can grab your arm and pull you towards him with each thrust.
But for a lot of couples, the Pretzel is not all about penetrating you fast and hard, it’s about slower, more gentle and intimate sex. This means that your man may want to slow things down a bit and grind on you instead of thrusting in and out.
THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN PERFORMING THE PRETZEL POSITION
The Pretzel is not a very common position, but a lot of students of the Bad Girls Bible have tried it and have given me some great insights into getting the most out of it:
- The Pretzel is great for when you are tired and you want your man to do all the work.
- The Pretzel is more of a sensual sex position than a crazy, ‘wild’ sex position. Although if he wants, your man can penetrate you more vigorously.
- Anal sex is quite easy in the Pretzel position, but it doesn’t make for a sensual, intimate time with your man. If you are looking for something that is more sensual and bonding, then perhaps start with an intimate massage!
- To help your man penetrate you deeper, you can grab your top leg with your arms(s) and pull it closer to your chest.
- Deckchair – Move your legs and his arm to get into this position.
- Leg Glider – He rests on one of your legs while the other goes straight up.
- Flatiron – He leans over you instead of sitting up.

SEAN’S THOUGHTS ON THE PRETZEL SEX POSITION
I like the Pretzel a lot. It’s great for when I’m with a girl who wants some slow, sensual sex. It’s also really easy to switch from Spooning to the Pretzel in a matter of seconds.
