What Is the Eiffel Tower Sex Position?

Medically Reviewed by Dan Brennan, MD on June 28, 2021

The Eiffel Tower sex position involves three or more people who position themselves into a formation that resembles the architectural structure of the Eiffel Tower.

How Does it Work?

By definition, the Eiffel Tower can only be accomplished with three or more people. This means that you will have to have a conversation with your partner prior to doing this sex position. Once all parties have confirmed that they are willing and able participants, you can begin planning how to set up the Eiffel Tower.

One person gets on all fours and forms the “base” of the tower. That person performs oral sex on the partner standing in front, while being penetrated by the other partner from behind. Then the outside partners high-five or touch hands above the base partner.

Variations of the Eiffel Tower

Flipped Eiffel Tower

This variation has the same structure as the Eiffel Tower, but instead of the base partner being on all fours, they flip over and lie on their back. 

Lying Down Eiffel Tower

This variation has the same structure as the traditional Eiffel Tower, but instead of the two outside partners standing or kneeling, they both lay down towards the same side, while the base partner also rolls onto their side.

Double-Stack Eiffel Tower

This involves bringing in a fourth partner to help form the base of the tower. They can be facing the same way as the original base partner, go head-to-toe and perform a 69 sex position, or flipped over and lay them back to back on top of the original base partner. The outside partners now have four different hole variations to choose from for penetration.

What is the Difference Between Eiffel Tower and Spit Roast?

While the general formation of both positions is the same, the difference between these two sex positions is that in the Eiffel Tower, the partners on either end of the partner in the middle touch or hold hands, forming a triangle. In the Spit Roast, the outside partners keep their hands to themselves or touch the base partner on their respective ends.

Myths About the Eiffel Tower Position

It has to be male-female-male.

The Eiffel Tower can be accomplished with any combination of partners and can include vaginal or anal sex, a dildo or strap-on.

It has to be only three people.

The Eiffel Tower position lends itself for more than three people to participate. There can be two people at the same time as the base.

How to Try the Eiffel Tower Sex Position Safely

Practice Safe Sex

Since the Eiffel Tower involves more than two people, make sure that everyone is practicing safe sex. Use condoms and take other measures to protect you and your partners from sexually transmitted diseases.

Talk to Your Partner

When involving an additional person to have sex with you and your partner, you need to make sure that everyone is comfortable and consenting to group sex. You should also be prepared to deal with difficult or jealous feelings after.

Whenever engaging in group sex, open and honest lines of communication about how each partner is feeling is very important to ensure everyone participating is safe, healthy, and happy.
