I doubt if any person male or female has the correct frame unless thay have been taught at a very good school, or have been fortunare enough to have gone to a very experienced teacher. It is not possible to learn this by ones self.

I am new at this and I am female. What are you referring to as "frame"? I had best find this out now before I create problems for my partner as well as a bad habit to have to break later. Thank you!!

Frame: The position of the arms and top of body. As a woman, it is extremely important that you hold your own arms up. Do not lean straight back into the man's arms -this will kill him. It looks like this is what women are doing but it is an illusion. Look left, do not do 'the wiper' with your head moving back and forth across his line of sight. Keep your chest up and off the man's chest, shoulders down but do not scrunch your shoulder blades together. Your elbows should stay in front of you at all times. Proper frame is a huge challenge and I have only mentioned the most obvious tips. The only way to get the frame right is to learn from a good instructor who cares about it and check it frequently.
