Frontal over-the-lap position
The frontal over-the-lap position is spanking position in which the spankee is placed over the seated spanker's lap such that the spankee's bottom faces forward, not sideways as in the classic over-the-knee position. The spanker's knees are apart and the spankee's upper body rests on one of the spanker's thighs. The spankee's legs face forward rather than sideways. The spanker typically holds or reaches around the spankee's waist to keep him/her in position.
This position can be used both for big/heavyweight and small/lightweight spankees. Small children may be completely in front of the spanker and their feet will be off the floor, while taller children and adults will be able to keep their feet on the ground and find their head and arms clearly behind the spanker. The spanker best sits on a bed or stool, or on a couch that is wide enough to provide room for the spankee's upper body. A chair with arms or an armchair is not suitable for this position.
A disadvantage of this position is the poor hip support and the unsymmetry. The spankee's torso rests at an angle on one of the spanker's thighs and is stabilized there as good as possible with the help of the spanker's arm, hand, and other leg.
