If you are looking for some serious intimacy when it comes to sex, you will probably want a position where the two of you really connect. Then you will love the ‘Face-Off’ position. For this one, you don’t need to have supple limbs that contort in all directions to get this one to happen. This position is all about being truly intimate. It allows you to gaze into each other’s eyes if that’s what you want and love. If that’s what you and your partner cherish, then this super-hot connection is what you are looking for.
Getting into position for the Face-Off sex position
In this article we are talking about a ‘girl’ and a ‘guy’, just to explain everything more simply. But this position is for any sexual orientation, so don’t worry about that. Anyone can do this position.
The guy will sit on the edge of the bed or a chair. His feet should be firm on the ground and his legs slightly apart. The girl will then slowly go down on his cock; straddling him, and facing him. Her legs will go around his waist and his erect penis will be inside her. Now that he is sunken deep into her, the two of you can grind along together and look into each other’s eyes. Maybe some dirty talk whilst gazing into each other’s talk will be the ultimate turn-on for the most intimate of sex.

You can’t really get closer than this. If you want to read all the loving expressions on your partner’s face and eyes, this is one of the ultimate positions to do that.
What are the benefits of the face-off position?
The girl is in control of the depth of the thrust. Being seated provides her with the support she needs to ride her guy slow or fast, hard or gentle.

Both of you will have plenty of opportunities to use your hands to pleasure your partner. If you are battling to put an image in your mind, check out this pic!
Make yours an intimate experience too
Remember that sex is also a whole lot of fun. So don’t think that just because you are up close and personal with your partner that you have to be serious and intense. You can also allow yourselves to smile, giggle and laugh. It’s not a serious staring contest, particularly if you are not talking. If you do happen to find yourselves in the throes of pleasure but don’t want your partner to see you in such raptures, then you can close your eyes too or look away. You don’t have to be staring into his or her face the entire time!
Don’t forget you can introduce dirty talk in this position
It’s a powerful aspect of good sex. When you talk dirty, you are lacing sex with fantasy and full of anticipation. Talking dirty also helps you both express what you both love in bed. Dirty talk works better when you are looking at someone in the eye. The atmosphere is charged with steaminess, desire, and sex appeal – it can bring about very sexy results!
This position is not really for those who stress about face-to-face sex
“Face-to-face sex can be a stressful situation—it’s important to be aware of your partner’s preference: eye contact, no eye contact, or a bit of eye contact,” says sex educator, Catie Osborn. Sometimes people who have experienced trauma issues might not like eye contact, whereas those with ADHD might enjoy it more as it makes them feel closer to their partners.

Court Vox, a sex and intimacy consultant, on the other hand, suggests that “If you want to get really vulnerable, keep your eyes open and demand or request the gaze of your partner remain on you.”
Sure, the face-to-face sex position is really a great way if you want to build intimacy with your partner. Perhaps you feel that if you are truly in love, this is the perfect position to experience. Did you know that all that increased eye contact from having sex face-to-face can actually boost your oxytocin levels? Oxytocin is the chemical of ‘love’ and it’s associated with trust and bonding, so says Jodie Milton, women’s relationship and sex coach. Remember that when you get up close and personal with your partners.
