THE piledriver is a rather difficult position – but is also one that allows for deeper penetration and pleasure for those partaking in it.
Also known as the jackhammer, the piledriver position is not one for beginners to either sex or exercise. This position requires a fair amount of both core and leg strength.
The piledriver is definitely not a position for beginners
Even for those who are incredibly in shape it’s still recommended to do some hip opening exercises before getting straight down to it.
So what is the piledriver?
The piledriver requires two consenting participants, both of whom are quite flexible. This position can be use for both vaginal and anal penetration.
To get into the piledriver position, the receiving partner should lie on their back and slowly lift their legs up from their thighs until their torso is off the bed, they should end in a position similar to the yoga plow pose.
The penetrating partner should then straddle them on top and forward to enter at the right angle. If the angle is still not right, they can lean forward more and bend their knees for balance.

Is the piledriver safe?
If you have the required stamina and flexibility for this position to work then it can be done safely – although it’s recommended to still be careful and to perhaps not go too fast in this position.
The piledriver is not recommended for anyone with a bad back, especially if they are the receiving partner. A bad back can increase the risk of injury while in this position and it can be difficult for anyone to remain in this position for a long period of time, whether they suffer from back pain or not.
For the receiving partner there is also the risk that too much blood may rush to their head causing them to pass out. The penetrating partner may find themselves at risk of penile fracture depending on their angle of entry.
What are the benefits of this position?
One key benefit of this position is that it allows for deeper penetration, which many people find extremely pleasurable.

The piledriver also allows for penetration from different angles, so depending on how the penetrating partner moves, this can help stimulate the G spot or prostate.
It can also be a pleasurable position for a receiving partner who enjoys their partner having control during intercourse.
Are there variations on this?
There are at least a couple of variations on the piledriver; the upside down piledriver and the lying down piledriver.
For the upside down piledriver, the receiving partner should get into a downward dog position, the penetrating partner then stands and enters from behind.
The lying down piledriver starts with the receiving partner lying on their back with their knees bent, they then raise their legs up bringing their knees towards their face, while keeping their back flat on the bed.
The penetrating partner then kneels facing their partner and enters from that direction – the receiving partner can rest their legs on the penetrator’s shoulders if needed.
