A body position in which the feet are kept together or close to one another while the knees bent and spread widely appart. Usually adopted while the person is sitting, reclining or lying on their back.

The pose is very sexually provocative and is often assumed naturally by women during intercourse or as a visual prompt to initiate sex.

The term is derived from 'akimbo' - a similar posture involving the arms - the hands are placed on ones hips with elbows bent and pointing outward, thus forming the same diamond shape.
I think she liked me; when I walked into the room she was lying on the bed with her legs akimbo, wearing nothing but a grin!

A take-off on the phrase "arms akimbo", meaning to give a visualization of someone bending the legs with the knees to the outside but with the feet together. Possibly first used in print by the cartoonist Johnny Hart in the cartoon B.C., where a character mentions a female nightclub dancer named Legs Akimbo. This is to indicate that her act is risqué, as her crotch would be exposed, or that she would dance in a wild fashion, with great abandon.
She was a sexy dancer, with a short skirt and her legs akimbo.
