Valentine's Day chocolates are nice, but the pretzel dip (position, that is) seems to be taking priority over sweet truffles this year. (Though we still advise you to indulge in the candy, of course.) 

Ahead of February 14, partners are embracing a frisky mindset. From enrolling in virtual sex classes to switching up coitus locations with adventurous sofa sex, a little experimentation seems to be on everyone's minds. And according to the top 2023 sex trends, couples are looking for an intimate, feel-good experience in every sense. 

All things considered, it's no surprise curiosity about this bold move is on the uptick and climbing the charts of the most Googled sex positions. If a few twists and turns don't intimidate you, the experts suggest copying the shape of your favorite ballpark snack while in bed for a few extra perks. (Yes, really.)

Interest in the pretzel dip position is only increasing, as it's unusual, intimate and surprisingly not *too* hard to master. Though yes, the legs of you and your significant other will be twisted like a pretzel, the results are said to be worth it. 

The person being penetrated should lie on their right side while their partner kneels. The one receiving will lift up their left leg while their S.O. straddles the right one and enters them. The benefits of being somewhat sideways, legs folded and wrapped about, are that the penetration is deeper, it's easier to make eye contact—something causing a buzz on TikTok right now—and the hands-free play will likely segue into even more exploration.

"It's always fun to do something different and create a new sexual experience,"  Marla Renee Stewart, MA, a sexpert for Lovers previously told My Imperfect Life. 

Bringing a snack's unique shape into the equation certainly checks "different" off the list, right? Just remember to be honest with your S.O. before trying something new.

"Always talk to your partner first and ensure that you are both on the same page. As we always say, great sex starts with open and honest communication and always involves enthusiastic consent throughout, with limits respected," Angie Rowntree, the founder and director of told us.
