The Ups and Downs of 69

Become a master at the 69 position! Try these tried-and-true tips to having the best head-to-toe action ever.

The 69er got its name because the numbers are head-to-toe — as you are when you're doing it! Put simply, it's a sexual position that allows each of you to give and receive oral sex simultaneously. The usual position is you on top of him, with your bottom pointed toward his face, genitals lowered so he can lick them. Meanwhile, your mouth is positioned above his penis.

Because you're giving and receiving pleasure at the same time, some claim a 69er is the ultimate erotic sensation. Others find them to be ultimately frustrating: It's all too easy to get lazy on your end! If your partner's working his magic and you're about to climax, it's common to forget about his pleasure and try to get away with a few lackluster licks. That's why many people try 69ers in their youth and then decide they're too much work. Big mistake, ladies: They're a great way to add naughtiness and variety to a stale sex life, and with a few simple adjustments, they're easy to master. Here, the ups and downs of head-to-toe sex — and how to make yours better!
