BORED of the same old sex positions? Well maybe it’s time for you and your partner to try to the full nelson – but be warned this position is not for the faint of heart.
Named after the wrestling move it resembles, the full nelson is a rather advanced position, and not one that should be attempted by beginners or those who are not particularly athletic.
Not for beginners this positions requires a fair amount of athleticism and flexibility
So what is the full nelson?
To get into the full nelson position you should begin in reverse cowgirl. From here the receiving partner, who is on top, lies back and puts their legs up into a V shape.
The penetrating partner then wraps their arms around the top partner’s legs, holding them back with their elbows and locking their fingers behind the top person’s neck.
While more commonly used for vaginal penetration this position can be adapted for anal penetration instead.

Is the full nelson safe?
A rather difficult position, the full nelson should only really be attempted by those athletic and flexible enough – and can prove difficult even for women with yoga or gymnastics experience.
There are a number of risks that can arise when attempting this position including reduced breath for both partners. With the partner on the bottom having to carry the entire weight of the person on top, while for the other participant their neck position can result in shallower breathing.
There is a slight risk of penis injury, again due to the penetrating partner holding the entire weight of the receiving partner.
The biggest risk with the full nelson is possible neck injury to the person on top, the penetrating partner must take extreme care to not push too hard on their partner’s neck.
The wrestling move this position is named after is actually banned in amateur wrestling due to the heightened risk of injury.

One common variation to this is nelson’s sandwich, which is similar to the full nelson but where this is for two participants, nelson’s sandwich is a threesome position that allows for double penetration.
Another variation is the dog meet nelson. For this you should begin in standing doggy style with the receiving partner’s feet flat on the floor, they should bend over the waist and place their hands on the ground.
The penetrating partner should then stand behind them, bend forward and wrap their arms under the inside of their partner’s knees. From here they should then reach all the way behind their partner’s head and slowly lift them off the ground.
