‘The Nun’ Is The Unholy Sex Position You’ve Probably Never Heard Of

While The Nun is currently terrifying cinema audiences all over the world, the same title has been handed to a rather kinky sex position that is anything but holy.

Yes, although 'The Nun' might suggest a rather modest move in the bedroom, the position is far from it and involves the woman positioning herself by kneeling down on her partner as if she is praying.

No demons involved.


And that's not all - in a revealing report from The Sun, the pleasurable playtime placement sees the man laying back on a pillow with the woman facing away from him, while she puts her shins under his legs and bows her head as if praying in church.

The best part about it is that it involves the deepest penetration with the least effort. Although you'll probably have to say a few Hail Mary's in order to wash away those sins straight afterwards.

Anyway, it's a good way to pass the hours with your lover. And if you get sick of all that church chum or you're just looking for a way to get the ultimate personal pleasure, you can always have a go at the '68'.

Yes, you read that right.

While the 69 might be the more commonly known giving and receiving sex song, according to YourTango.com, the 68 is not about providing mutual pleasure, but ensuring one partner in the couple has a seriously good time.

Basically it involves one lucky candidate laying on his or her partner so their genitals are positioned over their mouth - and then the giver is free to suck, lick, or tickle to their heart's content.

Don't say we never treat you - that's two positions you can try out with your partner if you've got a spare few hours and are feeling a bit spicy.


What else were you going to do with your Sunday? Go to church? Watch The Nun? Why not do all at once and have a screaming orgasm while you're at it?

Not only are they fun, but they're both pretty safe in the grand scheme of things. According to the laws of karma sutra (and hospital statistics), the sex position that leaves dudes most at risk of suffering from a broken penis is doggy, followed closely by missionary.

NHS figures revealed that 18 cases were treated by hospital medics in the UK in 2016, with the highest risk occurring during 'vigorous sexual intercourse'.

Suddenly 'The Nun' and '68' aren't looking so outlandish now. Not only are they fun, but by the sounds of it a lot safer too. Enjoy, lovers!
