Everything mermaid-related went through quite a resurgence in popularity recently – and why wouldn’t it, mermaids are awesome. From ethereal-looking toast toppings and smoothie bowls to mermaid hair and nails, these mythical creatures wriggled their way into every aspect of our lives – including the bedroom in the form of a sex position.

So, how does it work? First of all, lie down on your back on a high bed (if your bed isn’t high enough, use the kitchen table – just add a pillow under your bum for extra comfort). Next, lift your legs into the air, pressing them firmly together. Your guy can then penetrate you, holding onto your legs for extra stability, if he needs it.

The benefits of this move are that because your legs are straight up in the air, your vagina forms a tight ring, providing a snug fit for his penis and lots of O-mazing friction for both of you. Because your hands are unoccupied, feel free to stimulate your clitoris or breasts and drive him wild as he watches you feel yourself up. To change up the sensation and vary the tightness, alternate between opening and closing your legs. Want to change it up? Check out these sexy variations…
