Missionary Sex Positions Ahhh, Missionary. Traditionally considered the "default sex position," Missionary offers lots of advantages to first-timers and people looking for sex that's more on the vanilla side. However, there are lots of slight variations on it that can amp things up in terms of the pleasure, the intensity and the kink factor — for both partners.
Check out these Missionary-inspired versions: Missionary Carlee Ranger The Missionary position man on top, couple facing each other is the most famous and classic of all positions. The eye contact, the mild male dominance and the angle of penetration make this a popular one, and odds are, the first time you had sex was in Missionary. Start in regular Missionary, and then flatten your torso as much possible, while your partner should arch her legs and put her legs on your butt.
What you're doing here is targeting the clitoris for more direct rubbing and friction. The pressure you put on her clitoris could help her get to orgasm quicker. You should also be staying nice and deep within her in the C. In other words, this one is more for her pleasure than yours. Legs On Shoulders Carlee Ranger A classic take on Missionary, this one can either be done with you lying down on top of her, or with her positioned at the edge of the bed and with you in standing or more accurately leaning in with her legs on your shoulders as you go into her.
You may need to grasp her legs and pull in gently to prevent your thrusting from pushing her away from you. Start with your torso more or less vertical and her legs on your shoulders. Descend slowly until you're basically folding her in half. For more leverage, you can reach around her back with your arms and pull her tightly against you. The pressure you're putting on her muscles can also create a tightness in her pelvis, leading to an increased tighter feel for you.
You should make sure she's flexible enough to pull this one off — many women aren't — and keep in mind you'll probably be able to pull this off for just a few minutes. The friction and pressure will be what brings her to orgasm, no matter what your size. To get maximum closeness, Missionary with legs on shoulders works best. You may also want to consider propping up her hips on a pillow or wedge you can find specially made ones to create the perfect angle.
The Viennese Oyster requires she place both of her ankles behind her head, fully exposing her vulva and folding her body into the shape of an oyster. He holds her ankles in place while she uses her free hands to prevent his body weight from crushing her contorted body. This is great for extra-deep penetration.
Spread Eagle Carlee Ranger This one's not for beginners, as it requires a little light bondage. But if you're exploring kinkier options with your partner, this is a great option that allows you to take a more dominant role while still offering both of you a lot of intimacy. With your partner on her back, have her spread her legs and tie her ankles and her wrists together.
You then have total control for a very steamy, powerful romp. Doggy-Style Sex Positions Dogs, it turns out, are more than just our best friends. They've also figured out a pretty good way to get it on. Doggy-Style and other variations where you're doing your partner from behind offer you a lot of control, and while they're typically less intimate than Missionary or its variations, sometimes that's exactly what you or your partner are looking for.
Doggy variations allow for all kinds of positioning possibilities, as each person can be standing, kneeling, or lying down; it can be good for role play where staring into each other's faces might ruin the illusion; and it typically means both of you have the option to stimulate the woman's clitoris. What's not to love? In its simplest form, you kneel on the bed, with your partner on all fours. You can decide to go slow or hard. If you want to add some roughness, and your partner is into that, Doggy is a solid option that allows for you to pull her hair or spank her as well, provided she enjoys that.
If you have a free hand, a clitoral reach-around or playing with her breasts can add extra stimulation, too. An easy transition from normal Doggy-Style, in this version you actually get up on your feet and stand up, and lean way over her.
The leaning forward actually lets you get a somewhat deeper feel, and the difficulty quotient will make you feel all the more accomplished for pulling it off. Bedside Doggy-Style Carlee Ranger A lot of sexual positions have the woman on an elevated platform with the man on the ground — this one flips the script.
Go the edge of the bed and kneel. Have her standing straight up and back up to you slowly, and then bend over at 90 degrees. You then enter her from behind and thrust away. If you want to make things easier on her back, you can place a chair or desk to place her arms on for support. This position not only accesses the G-spot and the A-spot to create squirting orgasms but it's also comfortable for the female partner after switching into several positions.
Backdoor planking is a position where the female partner lies on her stomach with her legs close together, and is penetrated from behind. This position requires little work on her behalf, but feels amazing because her legs are placed closely together which creates a tighter entry for him and increased sensation for her. Doggy-Style Stairs Carlee Ranger Another set up that works for anal sex or vaginal sex, the Doggy-Style sex on the stairs takes advantage of the natural inclination and steps to create new angles and supports for a classic position.
Again, carpeted steps or a towel to protect her knees are a good idea. Depending on your height, you can either be standing or kneeling for this one. You lie on your side, with your partner in front of you, facing away. Enter her from behind, and then both of you can control the pace and depth of thrusting. Spooning is comfortable; it's great for longer sexual sessions with a lot of sensual touching and kissing of the back of the neck.
You can also get quite handsy and reach around the play with her nipples or even reach down and add extra stimulation to her clitoris from the front, and it also works great as an anal option.
In this edition, you enter her from behind as you would normally with Doggy-Style, only then both of you straighten your torsos straight up. It's a variant of the Doggy-Style position we are all familiar with. The man stands on the floor at the edge of the bed, and the woman gets into the typical Doggy-Style kneeling pose on the bed. After the man has entered his partner he pulls her up towards him so that she is now kneeling at the edge of the bed, instead of being an all fours.
He supports her with one hand wrapped around her torso. This position is great because it allows you to get that deep penetration so many love about Doggy-Style, but you're more connected with your partner because her whole body is up against you.
Added benefits are that you can pull her hair, see her face, and also whisper nasty things into her ear, all at the same time, since you have one free arm. Start in the typical Doggy-Style pose and then lift her up by her thighs. Adult film actor and director Derrick Pierce says: For additional support, bring your leg up and plant on your foot with the same leg of hers that you are holding and rest her leg on top of your knee.
The Superhero Carlee Ranger Perhaps the ultimate strength test position, the "Superman" sees you bend her over a desk or table, with her using it for support.
Then, once you're inside her, lift her pelvis up slowly until her feet are actually off the ground, and you're holding on to her as you thrust in and out.
The sheer physical intensity of this one means it's not for the faint-hearted, but can provide an adrenaline rush as you go closer and closer to your breaking point. Keep safety in mind and let her down gently as soon as your strength starts to wane, and make sure you don't pull out too much. How it looks depends on a your partner and b the thing she's leaning over.
Leaning your partner over, say, a table and taking her from behind requires work from her end no pun intended but allows the dude to go about sexy times while literally just standing there. How it feels depends on the surface. Bent-Over Standing Doggy Carlee Ranger This standing twist on Doggy-Style takes some serious flexibility and commitment, but if you're up for it or down for it it can be a fun addition to your roster of positions.
This is also a great choice if you're trying to get it on in public without being caught — she can completely dip down behind a bush or parked car for cover.
Finally, your chance to ride. This is a variant on the Backdoor Planking position that sees you putting your thighs outside of your partner's thighs instead of inside them. Your partner should push her butt up in the air a little bit to help give you a better angle — a pillow can help here. The Toad Carlee Ranger In the Toad, the guy gets behind the woman and penerates her — but rather than classic doggy style or standing doggy, here, both partners are crouched over together.
A good option for those who find that the Frog isn't crouch-y enough, the Toad is a master class in getting it on while your knees bent. While this one should be considered for experts only, it's a strong choice if you're trying to sneak in a quickie and want to keep a low profile without fully lying down.
Products To Enhance Your Experience Of course, the more positions you try, the more fun you can have — but let's not forget that adding some sex toys to the mix can really amp things up. If you're looking for more ways to spice up your sex life, consider some of these options: There are plenty of formulas on the market engineered for specific use cases, depending on where and what you're trying to lube up.
But if you're looking for a great lubricant perfect for any position you're trying out, this water-based formula takes just about any position to the next level. It's condom-compatible and completely safe to be used with toys. Plus it's super long lasting, meaning you'll get more bang for your buck And in case you haven't gotten to know your partner well enough to find out what she's allergic to, this formula is completely organic, chemical and paraben free — which means you'll be in the clear.
It's a fact that the majority of women need some kind of clitoral stimulation in order to reach orgasm. Of course, there are options that are better for getting her there. But if you want to try something new without losing the benefit of clit stim, a vibrator is going to help achieve both of those goals. As long as you're both getting off in a position you enjoy doing, everyone wins, right?
You don't need one of those monster vibrators to get the job done, either. Something like the We-Vibe Sync, which offers G-spot and clitoral stimulation while allowing for simultaneous penetration will do the trick nicely. If you've written off the idea of trying out a cock ring because you don't need extra help lasting, it's time to revisit the benefits of using one. For starters, wearing a cock ring during any variation of woman on top gives your partner the advantage of added clit stimulation as she's riding you.
This also takes your standard Missionary and Coital Alignment Technique positions a step further, letting you stimulate her most sensitive area without much additional effort. A vibrating ring like this rechargable one amplifies that stimulation even further — and will feel extra good for you, too.
Anything new and novel you can introduce into your typical sex routine makes the whole thing feel brand new again. So if you're still holding out on pulling the trigger on experimenting with a pair of handcuffs, a blindfold or even something more complex like a sex swing, now's the time to get on top of it. If she's into being tied up or blindfolded, positions that put her in a more submissive pose are best for playing with these new toys.
