Intimacy at its best is found with the Side-to-Side Position. The man lies on his side and faces the woman, who is also on her side. Legs and arms of both partners should entwine naturally. For this position, the man may need to be a bit lower than his partner, for greater comfort during penetration. Pillows can be used by both partners for support.
