Who, like, to each their own! You do not to have love anal sex.
But, the chances of taking advantage will be higher if you try one or more of these 15 positions. Whether you are with a penis owner or a strap owner, you will appreciate these inventive switches for all the variable stimulation they provide.
1 All Hands on Pecs
Anal sex often lets you look away, so this position is ideal for people who want a sexy view. From the missionary position, slowly bring in your partner. Hold their chest to guide their pushes.
2 Plug and Play
If you’re not a billion percent sure you want your partner to do everything, start with a test. Try the love of the clitoris via a toy or a hand, while your partner tries an exploration excursion with a well lubricated anal plug. If you want more, it’s easy to go to the trial entrance with a penis or a strap-on. Your butt, your period.
3 The Posterior Plank
This position has the lowest incidence of sex-induced butt cramps, if that worries you. Perfect for when you are feeling lazy but also want to have anal sex, AKA Thursday.
4 Anal Will Always Love You
A more intimate approach to doggy style, stand in front of your partner and let him in from behind, keep your bodies close as if they were your “bodyguard”. Then, for the big crescendo, throw your arms to the sides like the diva that you really are.
5 Back Me Up
A twilight catch in doggy style, and who doesn’t like doggy style? Always communicate the speed and depth with which you are comfortable in this position, but they can help you relax and stay aroused by reaching out and touching your clitoris.
6 The Kinky Cowgirl
Ride your partner, like a cowgirl, and slide slowly over their, uh, saddle. Then mount them and enjoy holding the reins.
7 The Low Rider
Get more control over what’s going on there with a doggy-spoon hybrid. You can use your foot to go further or slow it down if it becomes too intense.
8 T & Anal
Just because your back is the center of attention doesn’t mean your forehead should be ignored. Ask them to get you into a spoon position, then use their upper hand to give your nipples or clit some love.
9 The Inversion Booty
An advanced movement for experienced yogis and anal sexperts. Swing your legs over their shoulders and bring them inside you at an upward angle. The benefit of your impending leg cramp: They can rub against the sensitive inner parts of your clitoris from here.
10 The Doppelbanger
Get the physical benefits of double penetration without the emotional quirk that comes with it possible to have a threesome by simply using a dildo instead. Kiss a pillow between your legs to keep the dildo or rabbit vibe in place while your partner enters from behind. Therefore. Many. RE.
11 Lean on me
It sounds basic, but this position is not really for beginners. You have little control over speed and depth, and they will have a hard time reaching your clitoris to keep you excited. Do this with a trusted partner with whom you communicate well to make sure everyone feels supported.
12 Netflix Anal Chill
It’s like Netflix and chill, but, you know, in the back. Put them astride the couch so you have full control over the speed and depth of their progression, and put in a few episodes of Outlander so you can sneak up on Jamie Fraser.
13 Yab Bum
No reason why you should get all the cul-tastic love. Try the intimate Tantric Yab Yum position, but with anal for you and a vibrating prostate toy in the ass for your partner. Press a ball against your clitoris and, honestly, you will hardly have to move to have crazy orgasms powered by toys.
14 The Triple D
If you and your daughter have double penetration fantasies, but you are also monogamous lesbians, stock up on double-headed dildos. Vacuum them on the ground, lubricate them and slide them gently. (FYI: CBD-based lubricant can help relax the front and back entrances.) Once located, roll slowly up and down while rubbing yours or a nearby clitoris.
15 The forklift
For a sitting version of doggie that gives you waaaay more control over how much you take, sit on your partner’s lap. Slide down as slowly as you want, placing your hands on your partner’s thighs so that you have full control. (Ahem, making the backup “beep-beep” sound here is completely optional … as in, not really recommended at all.
