Another great position for oxygen dependent patients, the Scissors Position is slightly different than the Intersection Position in that both partners have their legs opened like scissors and not just one. The man lies on his side with his legs opened to accept the woman, who is also on her side with her legs apart. The use of pillows is highly recommended for greater comfort.
