Position of the week—The Pair of Tongs

I looked at the picture of this one and just laughed. Talk about superhuman strength. Who makes this stuff up? In this position, the woman hangs off the bed sideways, supporting most of her weight on one arm. The man straddles the woman’s lower leg while holding her upper leg…well, up. Might have to lift weights for a few months (or years) to be able to achieve this one.
Well, you gals threw out the challenge and all I can say is we tried our best to do The Pair of Tongs position. Sweet Mary. I’m not sure who worked that position out, but God bless their upper-arm strength. Ethan tried to help me get in the right position and we even—sort of—held the pose for a few seconds before I started giggling uncontrollably. At that point, it went downhill fast. My arm gave out, Ethan tripped while trying to break my fall and we both fell onto the floor in a heap of naked body parts. I have to admit it will go down as my favorite pose regardless of the fact we never did it, because as we were sitting on the floor laughing our asses off—Ethan told me he loved me. He loves me!


  1. Oh, wow! I wish some hot young man would say that to me.

  2. I knew it!!! Congratulations, Rach! You and Ethan were meant to be together. Now you just have to work on that upper body strength so you can try out the Tongs on your honeymoon.

    So happy for you both!

  3. Tongs. Is that a position the Chinese made up in the 7th century?
    For those who have done yoga and strength training.

  4. Sam would have a heart attack if I even mentioned the words "tongs" and "sex" in the same sentence. And I don't really want to have to think about my upper body strength when I'm having sex. I'm all about what's going on below the waist. (Isn't it great the first time they use the L word? I cried.)

    I'm really, really happy for you.

  5. Umm. That just looks downright painful.
