What is the full nelson sex position and how do you perform it? 0 119

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.

What are the benefits of the full nelson?

Used in pornography more often than in other sexual circumstances this is a great position for anyone wanting to film a sex tape there is a lot of exposure.

This position also allows for greater G-spot stimulation, and is great for women who like to feel small during sex. In this position men may also feel more masculine and powerful.

Are there variations of this position?

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.

My bitter ex told lies to my friends about my ‘small manhood’ after I dumped her 0 40

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger.

She never complained when we were together, but last week she told the girls in our group that being with me was “like kissing a soggy lettuce leaf” and that she “literally didn’t feel a thing when we were having sex” because I’m so small.

My ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger

I’m 25 and she’s 24. I think part of it is jealousy.

She knows a couple of the other girls fancy me and I think she’s trying to sabotage any chance I have with them.

Not that I’m even planning anything.

She’s so insecure and has a vicious tongue on her.

I’m tempted to let each of her so-called friends know what she really says about them in private.

Even her best friend gets a nasty critique every time she posts anything on Instagram.

Her top is either too short, or her hair looks like wire, or her laugh is fake . . . it goes on and on.

I don’t regret splitting up with her but this last trick has really infuriated me.

You could maybe reply with: “Let’s just say she never complained when we were together and nor have any of my other exes.”

Your friends will soon see her behaviour for what it is – jealous insecurity.

My partner said he was on a work trip – but he was actually getting married and on his honeymoon 0 28

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner said he was on a work trip two months ago, but he had actually got married and been on honeymoon.

Our relationship had become a bit predictable, but we still had regular sex and nice days out with our two young sons.

My partner lied about his work trip – he was really on his HONEYMOON

I’m 32 and he’s 37. Our sons are four and two.

When he returned from his “work trip” he blamed me for his cheating, saying I had let myself go and didn’t pay him enough attention.

He then told me he’d “traded up” for a better model. It didn’t stop there.

He said that his wife, who is 27, is absolutely stunning and makes him feel special.

Apparently this woman was a barmaid he’d met on a golf trip and they had been seeing each other for six months.

He told me all this, then marched upstairs and packed his games console and his clothes and drove off out of my life.

The thing is, we always talked about getting married but when we had kids there always seemed something better to spend our money on.

Mutual friends have told me he has moved into a new-build home on the other side of our small town and his wife has plenty of family money.

My sons are really missing him and I don’t even know how I feel.

Sometimes when he comes to visit the boys I beg him to come home.

But other times I’m so angry with him, I refuse to let him in.

Now he is accusing me of stopping him from seeing his children.

DEAR DEIDRE

I caught my husband snogging my sister – how am I meant to trust him again?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry your partner ended your relationship in such a cruel way.

This man sounds selfish and immature, and quite frankly the way he has treated you is emotionally abusive.

It won’t feel like it now, but you really are better off without him.

He is behaving like he still lives in your home, by just turning up unannounced.

Tell him firmly that you would encourage a good relationship between him and your sons but he can only collect them with prior arrangement.

Start to put down your boundaries.

I’m sending you my support pack When Parents Fall Out, which you could pass to him to help explain why you need to co-operate for the future wellbeing of your children.
