The splitting Bamboo is one sex position that many couples just can’t stop raving about once they try it. It offes a unique stimulation angle that both men and women tend to find note-worthy and very enjoyable.
The Splitting Bamboo description
To assume the splitting bamboo position, the woman should lie down flat on her back on a bed or other comfortable surface, such as a couch or futon. The man then moves in between her legs. He straddles one of them while lifting the other one up onto his shoulder. This opens up the woman’s hips and provides an easy angle for penetration. The man inserts his penis and thrusting or other, more subtle movement is initiated.
Both the male and female partner have a good amount of control in this position, although it is probably a somewhat male-dominant position. The man can thrust in and out while the woman can raise her hips up to meet him or pull back to limit the depth of penetration. This position lends itself well to gentle, circular grinding motions, which can provide excellent clitoral stimulation for the woman as the man’s hips press against her vulva.
The splitting bamboo stands out for many couples because of the sideways — rather than straight-on — orientation of the penis within the vagina. This angle provides stimulation to both partners that is noticeably different than the majority of other common sex positions. This is a good reason to take it slow at first, though, until both partners are comfortable with how the penis and vagina are lining up.
The splitting bamboo is also popular because, as with missionary, for instance, it makes it easy for the two participants to hug, kiss, touch and look into each other’s eyes while having sex. This makes it a good choice when you want to be loving and emotionally intimate.
