The Reclining Lotus requires the female be able to sit in the lotus yoga position. The lotus position is the same as sitting cross-legged. Once in the position, the female lays back on the bed, her crossed legs in the air. The male supports his weight on his arms as he penetrates from the top. Placing a pillow under her bottom changes the angle of the vagina and penetration. The pillow also helps ease pressure placed on her body if his arms grow a bit tired.
