Benefits: Strong clitoral stimulation. In a study published in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy, women who were unable to have an orgasm in the missionary position reported a 56 percent increase in orgasm frequency using the coital alignment technique. Other studies suggest even greater success, with up to 73 percent of women achieving orgasm with CAT.
Benefits: The blood will rush to your other head too.
Technique: Move to the edge of the bed and lie back with your head and shoulders on the floor as she straddles you. The blood will rush to your head creating mind-blowing sensations upon orgasm.
Benefits: This is the best sex position for women who are particularly sensitive along one side of the clitoris.
Technique: Kneel on the floor with her lying on the edge of the bed. Raise one of her legs and ask her to support her leg by wrapping her hands around her hamstring just below the knee. With one hip raised, she’ll be able to add some movement to aid in your stroking or to help move you to the perfect spot.
Benefits: Puts her in control. Great for G-spot stimulation and her orgasm.
Technique: Woman-on-top is one of the best sex positions because it allows for a variety of interesting sights and sensations, and offers her the psychological advantage of taking charge of pace and depth of penetration. Alternate between shallow and deep thrusts. "Shallow will stimulate the front third of the vagina, which is the most sensitive," says sex therapist Rebecca Rosenblatt, author of Seducing Your Man.
Benefits: Good G-spot stimulation.
Technique: Sit on the edge of the bed or on a chair with your feet on the floor. She turns away and backs up onto you, sitting between your legs. She can ride back and forth by pushing off the chair arms or pressing up with her feet. She can control the angle of entry by arching her back and pressing her buttocks into your groin. While doggy style is about your dominance, The Hot Seat puts her in the driver's seat. And that makes it one of the best sex positions for both of you.
Benefits: Extra vibes.
Technique: This is a variation on the Hot Seat with her sitting in your lap, but this time planting yourselves on top of a washing machine set at the highest agitator cycle.
In vitae nisi aliquam, scelerisque leo a, volutpat sem. Vivamus rutrum dui fermentum eros hendrerit, id lobortis leo volutpat.
Maecenas sollicitudin est in libero pretium interdum. Nullam volutpat dui sem.
Benefits: With a pillow under your head, you get an awesome view of her backside. She can control depth of penetration and pace with this sex position.
Technique: Lie on your back with your legs outstretched. She kneels next to you, then turns and spreads her legs, straddling your hips and facing your feet. Kneeling, she lowers herself onto your penis and begins riding you.
Benefits: Dual stimulation for her; for you—a great view of her rear and your penis entering her.
Technique: Lie on your back and bend one of your legs, keeping the other outstretched. She straddles the raised leg with a thigh on either side and lowers herself onto your member so that her back is facing you. She should hold your knee and use it for support as she rocks up and down.
Benefits: Allows for face-to-face intimacy; cozy for long sessions.
Technique: Sit on a chair or the edge of the bed. She then faces you, wraps her arms around your back, climbs on top, and sits on your lap. Once in the saddle, she can ride up and down on your penis by pressing with her legs or knees. Want to go faster? Assist by grabbing her buttocks and lifting and bouncing.
Benefits: Puts her in control, maintains intimacy.
Technique: Place pillows behind your back and sit on the bed with legs outstretched. She straddles your waist, feet on the bed. She then bends her knees to lower herself onto you, using one hand to direct your penis in. Just by pressing on the balls of her feet and releasing, she can raise and lower herself on your shaft as slowly or quickly as she pleases.
Benefits: This sex position is the piece de resistance for women who prefer a strong, upward stroking motion.
Technique: Place a pillow under her hips to tilt her pelvis up. Bend her knees so she can place her feet on your shoulder blades.
Benefits: The ultimate sex position for oral on the go, use this to get her in the mood and help her cut loose.
Technique: Have your partner sit on a chair with her legs wide open. You take it from there. This is a good sex position for either beginning the slow build-up with loose, broad, strokes, or ending with strong suction. Your partner is able to easily guide you, and she's able to get a full view of you between her legs, which is a turn-on for many women.
Benefits: A variation of One Up that allows for slow buildup.
Technique: Some women find direct clitoral stimulation uncomfortable. Having her close her legs during oral sex may help. Place your hand above her public mound applying light pressure, and then rub your firm tongue on the area around the clitoris to add indirect stimulation.
Benefits: The deep penetration of doggy-style while face to face.
Technique: Kneel and straddle her left leg while she is lying on her left side. She will bend her right leg around the right side of your waist, which will give you access to enter her vagina. For many women, rear entry hurts their backs. This sex position allows her to lounge comfortably while enjoying deep penetration.
Benefits: Allows deep penetration and targeting the G-spot.
Technique: She lies on her back. You kneel between her legs and raise them, resting her calves over your shoulders. Rock her in a side-to-side and up-and-down motion to bring the head and shaft of your penis in direct contact with the front wall of her vagina. Because this angle allows for deep penetration, thrust slowly at first avoids causing her discomfort.
Benefits: Deep penetration and an erotic view.
Technique: This could be your next move after starting in The Flatiron sex position. Entering her from behind, you'll be able to thrust deep so the tip of your penis touches her cervix, an often-neglected pleasure zone. But you should do this slowly and gently. Some women find it painful.
Benefits: Intensifies vaginal pleasure.
Technique: She lies face down on the bed, knees slightly bent and hips slightly raised. For comfort, and to increase the angle of her hips, she can place a pillow under her lower abs. You enter her from behind and keep your weight off of her by propping yourself up with your arms. This position creates a snug fit, making you feel larger to her.
Benefits: An extra rush of blood to her head to increase her ecstasy.
Technique: Have your partner lie on her back with her legs raised over her head. This is not a plain Jane position! Squat over her and dip your penis in and out of her. Be extra careful to thrust lightly to avoid stressing her neck.
Benefits: Erotic move for quickies in tight quarters. Good option for outdoor sex. Allows for easier penetration. She has control of thrusting, depth, and angle.
Technique: You stand facing one another. She raises one of her legs up and wraps it around your buttocks or thigh and pulls you into her with her leg.
Benefits: You can enjoy the view of your penis thrusting.
Stand at the edge of a bed or desk while she lies back and raises her legs to her chest. Her knees are bent as if she's doing a "bicycling" exercise. Grab her ankles and enter her. Thrust slowly as the deep penetration may be painful for her.
Benefits: Good sex position for a quickie with deep penetration.
Technique: A variation of The Ballet Dancer in which she raises her legs up and wraps them around your butt or thighs. Your kitchen counter is the perfect height for this standing-to-seated appetizer.
Benefits: Good for an outdoors quickie, while still avoiding prying eyes.
Technique: Another variation of The Ballet Dancer. Her buoyancy in the water makes this sex position easier to hold. And all you need to do is shift some bathing suit material out of the way of certain body parts; the lifeguards will be none the wiser.
Benefits: Calorie burner because it's so athletic. You can stroll around the house in this position, but draw the shades first.
Technique: You enter her as you would in standing, rear entry, but lift her up by the pelvis and have her grip your waist with her legs. Summer camp wheelbarrow races were never this much fun!
Benefits: Less strenuous than the standing varieties of this sex position, while still offering intense sensation.
Also try: Try the wheelbarrow while sitting on the edge of a bed or chair. Movement is limited, but penetration is deep.
Benefits: An ideal position for G-spot stimulation. Seeing the round curves of her rear tends to be highly erotic for you.
Technique: Stand and enter her from behind as she poses on all fours on the edge of the bed and arches her back to lift her buttocks.
Benefits: Good for a quickie at a party.
Technique: Slip into a bathroom and ask her to look into the mirror while you enter her from behind. It lets you have eye contact during the G-spot-targeting rear-entry sex position.
Benefits: Convenient for a quickie and adds spice outside the bedroom.
Technique: Ask her to bend her body over the arm of a couch as you enter her from behind. She can grind on the firm but cushy arm for multiple stimulation with minimal effort.
Benefits: Greater thrusting power, and good for quickie sex in your kitchen, especially if she is wearing a skirt.
Technique: Ask her to bend at the waist and rest her hands on a piece of furniture, her knees or the floor for support. You enter her from behind and hold her hips for support as you thrust.
Benefits: Creates great eye-to-eye contact. Keeps your weight off her bod.
Technique: There's a reason women swoon when they see a six pack. They know a man with strong abs is going to be great in the sack. The mountain climber position shows off your strength and hard abs (if you have them). While between her legs, assume the standard "up" sex position.
Benefits: A little bit of variety if missionary begins to feel stale; good upper body exercise. Technique: Place a pillow under the small of her back or her buttocks to tilt her pelvis and change the angle of your penetration for different sensations. Bracing yourself with your hands on the bed as in a pushup position, you take your weight off her body.
Benefits: Lots of eye and body contact.
Technique: The most commonly used position in the world, the missionary is an especially intimate position allowing for face-to-face contact. You like it because you can control penetration depth and speed of thrusting. She enjoys feeling your weight on her body, and the maximum skin-to-skin contact. Note that this position can make it more difficult to hold off ejaculation because of the intense friction and deep thrusting. To lengthen lovemaking, start there then switch to a position that maintains clitoral pressure without so much pelvic back and forth.
Benefits: Comfortable sex position if she's pregnant or you're heavy. Also ideal for long lovemaking. Good one for falling asleep afterward.
Technique: You both lie on your sides facing the same direction, you behind her. She bends her knees and pushes her rear back toward you for easier access to her vagina. Adjusting the lean of your bodies will vary the angle of entry and help with rocking and thrusting.
Benefits: Offers a natural bridge to more creative positions.
Technique: She lies on her back, and raises her right leg so you can position yourself between her legs at a 90-degree angle and enter. Her legs will form the tines of a spork, a spoon-and-fork utensil. She can do this with you facing her or facing her back.
Benefits: Relaxing position with deeper penetration and increased intimacy.
Technique: Both of you lie on your sides facing one another. She bends and spreads her legs, and angles her vagina toward you. You lift your legs between hers to enter while she wraps her legs around your back.
Benefits: A very intimate face-to-face position that encourages hugging and kissing.
Technique: This is an ideal position if she is pregnant or either one of you had a knee injury because it keeps weight off the body. To get into the position, begin by lying on your sides and facing one another. She spreads her legs slightly to allow you to enter her, then closes her legs so the part of your shaft that's outside can press against her clitoris. It's easy to kiss from this intimate face-to-face position.
Benefits: Prolonged slow sex to build arousal. Shallow thrusts stimulate the nerve endings in the head of your penis.
Technique: Sit on the bed facing each other with legs forward. Lift your right leg over her left and she lifts her right leg over your left. Come together so you can enter. Now both of you lie back, with your legs forming an X. Slow, leisurely gyrations replace thrusting.
Benefits: She gets a prime view of your derriere.
Technique: This is challenging: She lies on her back while you straddle her facing away. She lifts her legs and wraps them around your back to elevate her pelvis so you can enter. She then grabs your butt to help you slide up and back. She can add a little massage action to her grip also.
Benefits: Quicker orgasms for her; easier motions.
Technique: From The Spider, she can lift her legs onto your shoulders, which increases the muscular tension that advances the orgasm sequence. By elevating her butt off the bed, it'll be easier for her to thrust and grind in circles.
Benefits: You both can still maintain eye contact while viewing the action at center stage.
Technique: Both of you are seated on the bed with legs toward one another, arms back to support yourselves. Now move together and she moves onto you. Her hips will be between your spread legs, her knees bent and feet outside of your hips and flat on the bed. Now rock back and forth.
Benefits: She can direct the position of your tongue and the pressure against her by rising up or pressing down.
Technique: She straddles you placing her knees at your ears. She can hold onto a wall or headboard for support. While you're doing your thing, she can use her fingers to graze her nipples or rub the top of her vulva.
Benefits: Simultaneous oral pleasure.
Technique: When she's on top in 69, she can control the intensity of oral stimulation on her clitoris by lifting or pressing her pelvis. From this position it's easy to work her finger magic on your perineum, the sensitive area just below your testicles. Also try the man-on-top position.
Benefits: A comfortable position for the woman. An erotic one for you.
Technique: Rest a pillow behind her head, and then straddle her shoulders. Support yourself by holding the bed's headboard or the wall.
Benefits: Great for out-of-bedroom fellatio.
Technique: She kneels in front of you, covering her teeth with her lips and encircling your glens with her mouth. She then slowly pistons her lips up and down on your shaft, alternating speeds and occasionally stopping to move her tongue over and around your head.
Benefits: See The Hot Seat. Also, ads bounce to his thrusts.
Technique: Have a ball in your workout room? Use a stability ball to add some bounce to The Hot Seat. Have him sit on the ball with his feet on the floor. Back up onto him, sitting between his legs. Roll and bounce to it.
