Facesitting, also known as queening, or kinging, is a sexual practice in which one partner sits on or over the other's face, typically to allow or force oral-genital or oral-anal contact.[1][2] It is common for this position to form part of BDSM, involving dominance and submission, though this need not be the case. Within a BDSM or D/S context, facesitting can be an especially intense form of erotic humiliation.

Facesitting is common among dominant and submissive individuals, for demonstrating superiority and for sexual gratification.

Unlike smothering, in facesitting the bottom partner is not deprived of air. The full-weight body-pressure, moisture, sex odors and darkness can be perceived as powerful sexual attractions or compulsions. The person sat upon may be in bondage, sexually submissive, or simply held down by the body-weight of the other person.

 

Queening stool

Sometimes special furniture is used, such as a smotherbox or queening stool.

A queening stool is a low seat which fits over the submissive's face and contains an opening to allow oral-genital and/or oral-anal stimulation of the domme while seated. In modern BDSM vernacular, the queening stool allows open access to the crotch while seated. The position allows the pelvic floor muscles (PFM) to relax and therefore partly exposing the labia minora to intimate touch. The gluteus maximus, levator ani and puborectalis or sphincter recti muscles, the major muscles of the crotch, can relax and sag allowing easy access to the vagina and anus. The queening stool is also related to a "smotherbox," which also allows the person under the seat to be locked in place, restrained by the neck as in a set of stocks.
