A sexual position where one participant is penetrated from behind by the other, while the penetrated partner has their arms are held behind them (as opposed to with their hands on the ground, supporting their weight). In this position, the penetrating partner must support the weight of the penetrated, who leans out and forward, resembling a figurehead, or carved wooden decoration located on the prow of old ships.

Christina: He totally wants to figurehead you.

Jun 14 Word of the Day
Referring to women who are sexually or romantically attracted to other women. Applies to both lesbians and bisexual women, as it is only the same-sex attraction that matters, not any other attractions the women may have.

Originates from the Greek poet Sappho, a bisexual woman from the Isle of Lesbos, from which we get the term lesbian.
The sapphic women greatly enjoyed each others company.

A figurehead is an insecure mama's boy who likes to act tough on internet chat rooms and forums. Often spends hours researching material to come across as knowledgeable, but more times than not will be incorrect. A figurehead is easily spotted when confronted with bogus information. A figurehead will become combative, resorting to name calling and throwing fits.
When called out on his obvious lack of knowledge on the subject, figurehead started ranting, raving, and calling everyone an idiot. He had nothing else to backup his comments.
