Face Sitter


  Position #8 Face Sitter Have some fun with this oral sex position. One partner lies down while the other brings their knees either side of their partners head. A wall or headboard is handy to support the top partner who can control the pleasure. Make sure you leave enough room for the bottom partner to breath!   Leiden is celebrating sex one position at a time. Each fortnight we will be celebrating a different sex position in our sexy new illustration series featuring original artwork by Lexi Keelan.

Sixty Nine


  Position #7 Sixty Nine If you are a fan of both giving and receiving oral sex then this is the position for you. Soixante-neuf as our french friends call it, allows you to do both at the same time!

This can be a bit tricky for partners who aren’t of a similar height but play around to find a configuration that works for you. Believe us, its worth it.   Leiden is celebrating sex one… Continue Reading
