The Pinball Wizard Sex Position Is Just As Magical As It Sounds

Need something new in your sexual repertoire? Behold, the Pinball Wizard sex position. It’s like the bridge pose in yoga, but with orgasms. One partner lies on their back, then lifts their hips up, keeping their feet and shoulders on the ground. The other partner kneels to penetrate, holding their partner’s legs for balance and for leverage to go deep—real deep.

If you’re not convinced yet, here are a few more reason you should absolutely try this position, like, tonight.

It’s amazing for deep penetration.

Did you not read that last paragraph? So much D/strap-on/dildo action.

You and your partner get easy clit stim access.

Most people with vaginas need some form of clitoral stimulation to orgasm, and the Pinball Wizard position gives you all that and then some. “Because the receiver is arched, it puts their clitoris in prime position for some stimulation with either fingers or a bullet vibrator,” says Ruby Payne, dominatrix and sex expert at adult toy retailer UberKinky.

It looks really f-ing sexy.

If you love watching how your bodies fit together, this is amazing for both partners. “It’s a lovely position for the partners to be able to see each other’s bodies, which can be a real turn on,” says Searah Deysach, sex educator and owner of feminist sex shop Early to Bed. Want a different POV? Do it in front of a mirror.

It works for pretty much anyone.

“It’s fantastic for lesbian couples!” says Carmel Jones, a relationship expert who writes about sex, dating, and relationships at The Big Fling . “When used with a strap-on, this position can be deeply satisfying for both partners. I’d suggest trying it with a dual penetration strap-on or a strap-on that vibrates. That way, both partners can get in on the action.”

It’s adjustable for your fitness level.

Have you missed yoga classes for, like, two years? (*Shakes fist impotently at Covid*) “The Pinball Wizard position can be a challenge for people without a lot of core strength. If this happens to be you, consider adding a sex wedge to help with positioning,” says Rebecca Blanton, aka Auntie Vice, a sex educator and co-host of the Fat Chicks on Top podcast.

The Tilt

Want to go even deeper? Are you sure?! Have you discussed this with your cervix?! If so, put a leg over your partner’s shoulder. This takes a bit more athleticism, but it can help with deeper penetration,” says Deysach. Again, a sex wedge can be your BFF here.

The High Score

Make it even hotter by adding a toy (or toys!). “Try holding a vibrator to your (or your partner’s) clitoris while in this position. A wand-style or mini vibe would work great,” says Deysach. Go ahead and throw in some butt plugs too, if you’re craving anal play.

The Bumper Shot

Flip over for a Pinball/doggie hybrid with all new feels. “For very deep penetration, the penetrated partner flips over so they’re facing away from their partner,” says Tatyana Dyachenko, sex therapist and relationship expert for Peaches and Screams. You can keep the yoga theme going by putting your feet on the floor à la downward dog, or the penetrating partner can grab one or both of the receiver’s legs to make it into a classic wheelbarrow position.
