What is the piledriver sex position? 0 44

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.

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.
