The ’68’ sex position is allegedly even better than the ’69’ … except no one’s heard of it

Jade Hayden

Sounds like a pain in the neck, tbh.

If you are a human being living on planet earth, chances are you’ve heard of the 69.

And if you haven’t, it’s a sex position. Google it. Or don’t. Just make sure you go incognito if you are.

The 69 has become a classic among people who have sex and yet, so few of us have ever heard of the 68.

Why? Because it sounds like a lot of work and we’re just not able for the stress, tbh.

According to Your Tango, the 68 is the “best sex position you’ve probably never heard of.” And it goes a little something like this:

One person lies on their back – standard enough beginning.

The other person lies on top of that person with their genitals facing their partner’s mouth with their body facing upwards.

The person on the bottom then has all access to their partner’s bits from underneath while also having some free hands to touch some other places while they’re down there giving oral.

Still with us? No? Here’s a diagram shared on a website called for reference.

Get it now?

Yeah, you do.

Like, we’re sure this feels nice and everything, but is the 68 really all that achievable?

Would the person on the bottom not be mildly crushed by the person on the top’s inability to hold themselves up?

Would your neck not be absolutely wrecked from forcing it up to someone else’s bits from such an awkward angle?

Would you not primarily have a face full of ass for the entirety of this exercise (which, you know, if that’s your thing then go for it, maybe the 68 is the position for you)?

At the end of the day, we’re not going to knock the 68 until we’ve tried it (which will probably be no time in the near future due to how painfully alone and lazy we are).
