Frisky business Dear Angela: Are we too old to do the waterfall position safely?

Dear Angela:

With our 25th wedding anniversary coming up, my husband and I decided to revive our sex life. We made a list of all the sex positions we practiced over the years, and the plan is to try them all again before our anniversary this May.

We got all the easy ones out of the way already and are now working through the more adventurous positions that we experimented with when we were younger.

In an old diary I found a note about a waterfall position. I gave it a bad rating but I don’t even remember how it worked. I only know that my husband was half hanging off the bed and that he hurt his penis.

Do you know the position? Would it be safe to try it again?

Answer: The waterfall position is on the tricky side, but if you’re careful you should be OK.

Let your husband lie on his back at the edge of the bed with his head and shoulders resting on the floor. Then sit on top, facing him.
For stability and safety, put your feet on the edge of the bed or on the ground.

Once you got your bits together, don’t move too vehemently — due to the unusual angle of penetration, the position can cause painful penis injuries if you go too wild.
