46 Best Sex Positions For Better Stimulation And Stronger Orgasms
Some things in life are better to repeat: friends, perfectly sunny beach days, your faithful white manicure. Your sexcapades, however? Not one of them. Even the hottest spark in the bedroom needs new sexual positions to stoke the flames from time to time, otherwise, things get boring, quickly.
“Whenever you introduce something fresh and new to the bedroom, you prepare for a more stimulating experience and a bigger finish,” says Vanessa Marin, a certified sex therapist in LA. In short, your brain is thirsty for new things, and especially for women, your brain is very involved in your enthusiasm and satisfaction.
But where to start? How about one of those 46 orgasm-inducing positions that will make you explode and the mind of your partner.
(Note: Although many of these guidelines refer to male partners, these positions can be assumed by just about anyone.)
Do it: Near the edge of a bed or bench, rest on your hip and forearm on one side and press your thighs together. Your partner stands and straddles you, entering from behind.
Why: Keeping your legs tight during this sexual position allows for a tighter grip on him as he pushes.
Make it warmer: Instead of letting your partner do all the work, try pushing your hips slightly so that they match the tempo.
Do it: Your partner is sitting on a chair or the edge of the bed; you face him, sitting on his lap.
Why: During this sexual position, you control the angle and depth of entry and thrust. Sitting adds support, so it’s great for marathon sex sessions.
Make it warmer: Let your fingers (and your hands) speak. Once seated, you can put your hands anywhere on your body or that of your partner to make things more interesting.
3. Doggy style
Do it: Get on all fours, then put your partner on your knees behind you, your upper body straight or slightly draped over you (you know, like a humping dog).
Why: This sexual position allows deep penetration and easier stimulation of the G-spot.
Make it warmer: Stimulate your clitoris with one hand or have your partner do the finger work for you.
4. Pretzel dip
Do it: Lie on your right; your partner kneels, overlapping your right leg and wrapping your left leg around his left side.
Why: With this sexual position, you get deeper penetration of the doggie while being able to make that important eye contact.
Make it warmer: Ask your partner to rub your clitoris. Because, duh.
Do it: Lie face down on the bed, legs straight, hips slightly raised.
Why: This sexual position creates a tight fit so that your partner’s penis will look even bigger.
Make it warmer: A few shallow pushes and deep breathing will help make it last longer.
Do it: Lie down with your legs resting on each of your partner’s shoulders.
Why: This sexual position is great because when you lift your legs, it narrows the vagina and helps target your G-spot.
Make it warmer: Ask your partner to start rocking you in a lateral or vertical motion. This should put the penis in direct contact with your G-spot.
7. Cowgirl helper
Do it: Similar to the popular Cowgirl sex position, you kneel on top, pushing your partner’s chest back and sliding up and down on the thighs. But your partner helps by supporting part of your weight and grabbing your hips or thighs while he stands up to respond to each push.
Why: This sexual position puts less stress on your legs, which makes orgasm easier. Plus, if you’re with a guy, female-dominated sexual positions delay their climax, so everyone wins.
Make it warmer: Alternate between shallow and deep pushes to stimulate different parts of the vagina.
Do it: Put yourself on your hands and feet and ask him to take you by the pelvis. Then enter its size with your thighs.
Why: In addition to being a fabulous workout for the arms, this predominantly male sexual position allows for deeper penetration.
Make it warmer: Try to rest on a table or the side of the bed and take a break in your arms.
Do it: This is a modified Doggystyle. Put yourself on your hands and knees, then, keeping your hips up, put your head and arms on the bed.
Why: This sexual position creates deeper penetration and gives you a chance to rest on a pillow.
Make it warmer: Use your hands to stimulate your clitoris.
10. Stand and deliver
Do it: With the two of you standing, you lean at the waist; it penetrates you from behind.
Why: Bending over during this sexual position helps tighten the vaginal walls and increases the intensity of friction.
Make it warmer: Ask your partner to tickle your clitoris with a free hand or to tie your hands loosely with a silky scarf.
11. Magic Mountain
Do it: Your partner is seated, his legs bent, leaning on his hands and forearms. You do the same, then you go to him until you make contact.
Why: You will both feel connected when you look at each other. Increase your stimulation by grinding your clitoris against her pelvis.
Make it warmer: Slide ice cubes down her chest and let cold water collect at the base of her pelvis.
Do it: You kneel on top, pushing your partner’s chest and sliding up and down on his thighs. You can relieve part of your weight from his pelvis by leaning back and leaning on his thighs.
Why: By being dominant in this sexual position, you will delay its peak and intensify yours.
Make it warmer: Discover new sensations for both of you by widening your knees or bringing them closer to your body.
13. Reverse Cowgirl
Do it: Your partner is lying on his back; you straddle it, facing its feet.
Why: This position allows you to take control and show your guy the pace and pace that you like.
Make it warmer: To get more leverage, put your knees and shins on the inside of her legs and under her thighs.

Make it warmer: You can dramatically change the feel for both of you by changing the angle of your legs.
Do it: Your partner enters you from the missionary position, then slides his chest and legs from your body so that his pelvis is in the same place but his members form an “X” with yours.
Why: You can no longer feel your body moving with this sexual position.
Make it warmer: Use this unique angle to massage his back, buttocks or legs while he pushes. He will go crazy (like you, watching him).
18. The Caboose
Do it: While he is sitting on the bed or a chair, lean back on his knees and grab a sitting spoon.
Why: You cannot see your partner during this sexual position, which means fantasizing is easier and can add to the excitement.
Make it warmer: Tighten the muscles of your pelvic floor so you can grip it and keep it hard AF.
19. Scoop Me Up
Do it: You both lie on your side, facing the same direction. You lift your knees slightly while your partner slides behind your pelvis and enters you from behind. (You can also know this as a spoon.)

Make it warmer: Ask him to “go high”, rub his pubis against your clitoris, or “go low”, directly stimulating your G-spot with the head of his penis.
23. Butter Churner
Do it: Lie on your back, legs raised and folded so that your ankles are on either side of your head, while he crouches and plunges his penis in and out of your vagina.
Why: In addition to getting this eye contact, the extra rush of blood in your head will increase the ecstasy.
Make it warmer: Ask him to dribble chocolate syrup or something sweet in your mouth (yes, really). It further mobilizes your senses and amplifies the whole experience.
24. The Chairman
Do it: Your partner is sitting on the edge of the bed and you sit on him, facing you.
Why: This sexual position will reach the place … as in your G-spot. During this time, you can use your hands to stimulate his scrotum or perineum.

25. The Pinball Wizard

Make it warmer: Throw one leg against his shoulder for deeper penetration.
Do it: From the missionary position, you raise your legs and straighten them (forming a “V”).

Why: From the spork position, you can lift your upper leg and support it by resting it on your partner’s shoulder. From there you can easily stimulate your clitoris using your fingers while it is inside of you.

28. Seated Wheelbarrow
Do it: Ask your partner to sit on the edge of a bed or chair and position yourself so that your buttocks are on their knees, and place your hands firmly on the floor. Stretch your legs behind your waist (it will probably work best if it supports your thighs) and pump.
Why: This position allows deep penetration and you will work your arms while you are at it.
Make it warmer: Try to rhythmically tighten your pelvic muscles to help you reach a climax.
Do it: You don’t need to do this on a table – any surface that hits your partner at the crotch will do the trick. Bring it into you while you are sitting or lying on the edge of a table, counter or maybe even your bed.
Why: This position is ideal for face to face action. Also, if you both have radically different heights, this is a great option, as it puts you both at the same height.

Make it warmer: Try doing it on the stairs or at the edge of the tub. Takes a little talent … but hey, practice makes perfect, amirite?
31. The Om
Do it: Your partner is sitting cross-legged (yoga/pretzel style), you are sitting on his lap facing him. Wrap your legs around him and hug you for support.

Make it warmer: Lock in the deep gaze of the other to put an extra “oh” in the big O.
32. Upstanding Citizen
Do it: You get on it, wrapping your legs around his body (he keeps his knees unlocked and his thighs slightly apart). He gets up and supports you in his arms. You can start on the bed and have him pick you up without disengaging. (Or for the more daring, you can climb aboard while standing!)
Why: This is the position of each steamy love movie … a.k.a, it is a must.
Make it warmer: Ask him to push you against a wall – very carefully.
33. The spider
Do it: Sit on the bed, legs to each other, arms back to support you. Now move together and over his penis. Your hips will be between her legs apart, your knees bent and your feet outside her hips and flat on the bed. Now swing back and forth.

34. The good ex

Make it warmer: Reach out and stand to pull together for the pelvic thrust. Also, in turn, sit and lie down without changing your pace.
35. The lazy man
Do it: Place pillows behind your partner’s back and have them sit on the bed with legs outstretched. Now get on her waist, feet on the bed. Bend your knees to lower yourself down on him, using one hand to direct his penis. Just by pressing and releasing the soles of your feet, you can move up and down on the tree as slowly or as quickly as you want.
Why: This position gives you control and maintains great privacy. Think of his penis as a masturbatory tool, something to rub and stimulate your clitoris with and against.
Make it warmer: From this position, you can both lie down in the Spider position or its most difficult variant, the Good Ex.
36. Snow Angel
Do it: Lie on your back and ask your partner to overlap you in front of you. Lift your legs and wrap them around his back to raise your pelvis so that it can enter you. Grab her buttocks to help her slide up and back. Add a little massage action to your intake.
Why: You get a breathtaking view of her pretty ass. Besides, from this position, you have easy access to caress his testicles. Without forgetting, her pelvis is perfectly positioned to rub against your clitoris.
Make it warmer: Rotate it in missionary style to face you while trying to stay inserted. Then change position, this time with you up and facing you.
37. wrapped Lotus
Do it: Ask your partner to sit cross-legged and climb on his knees, facing him, legs wrapped around his back. Ask your partner to enter you and crush you against his pelvis.
Why: This position allows a certain intimacy face to face. Also, there is a lot of room for creativity in this position, such as the stimulation of different erogenous zones on the upper body of the other, such as the head, neck, and face.
Make it warmer: Ask her to lick your nipples and let her hands wander. And wander … and wander. (You got the idea.)
38. The snake
Do it: Lie on your stomach, and make your partner lie on you and slide from behind.
Why: This position allows ultra-deep penetration and a tight fit that can be pleasant for you and your partner.
Make it warmer: you can extend your hand back and wrap your hand around its stem to help control the depth of its depth or change the angle of your buttocks for the same effect.
39. Woman Astride
Do It: This position is like a cowgirl, but with a twist. Climb to the top and bring your partner into you. Then lean back and place your hands on the bed to support it, creating a 45-degree angle with your partner’s legs.
Why: This change of angle helps target your G-spot even more and lets you control the speed and depth of the pushes. Besides, your partner has easy access to your clitoris.
Make it warmer: Give yourself a hand with the “V-stroke”: Make a V with the index and ring finger of one hand and place the fingers on each side of your clitoris with his penis between both. Push your fingers down in a rocking motion.
40. Belly Down
Do It: Lie on your stomach with your hands pushed between your legs. Grind your legs together and move your hips up and down so that your clitoris and pubic mound rub against your firmly held fingers.
Why: Simple but superb satisfaction.
Make it warmer: it’s easy to add to most rear-entry positions, like the Flatiron or the Leapfrog.
41. Bubble the Fun
Do It: With your body submerged and your legs hanging out of the bathtub, start by rubbing yourself at the top before going down to take a walk underwater.
Why: Relaxing in a warm, sweet-smelling bath helps relieve tension, relieve stress and puts you in the mood.
Make it warmer: Add a waterproof atmosphere to make waves or enjoy your removable shower head (can I recommend the “pulse” setting?). Regular jets of water on the clitoris can be extremely pleasant.
42. Look and Learn
do it: Holding a hand mirror, sit on a comfortable chair with one leg resting on the bed or sofa. Now that you can check the goods, venture away from your sensitive clitoris to discover new erogenous zones. Explore the opening, interior and back wall of your vagina with your fingers, pressing and changing pressure until you find something that works for you.
Why: It may sound basic, but you get a new point of view. You can learn a new way to “ring the bell,” which can help alleviate the frustration many women experience when they can only come in one position.
Make it warmer: try it with your favorite sex toy, or drag your partner from the Seashell or Butter Churner position.
43. Circle Perk
Do It: While seated, use your finger to “draw” a circle around your clitoris. Start slowly and increase the speed and pressure, depending on your reaction.
Why: This movement is ideal for women who find direct clitoral pressure too intense for prolonged stimulation.
Make it warmer: Tired of the “O” shape? Try tracing the letters of the alphabet on your clitoris to vary the feeling.
44. Couch Grind
Do It: Mount the arm of an upholstered chair or sofa or the edge of a table or desk with a thick towel or folded blanket. Start with a small movement of the hips and slowly increase in speed.
Why: Great if you like solid, steady pressure on your clitoris.
Make It Hotter: Do you feel a little too American Pie? Grab the arm with your thighs and bring your guy in from behind. Make sure you don’t break any furniture.
45. Get to the G-Spot
Do It: Lie on your back and bring your knees towards your chest. Insert one or two fingers deep into your vagina. When you remove your finger, press against the front of your vagina and urethra and bend your finger while beckoning.
Why: With this motion, it’s normal to feel a slight urgency at first, but with practice and multiple sessions, you can expect a warm and enjoyable experience.
Make it warmer: try it with one leg bent over your chest, extending the other, for a variation of the feeling.
46. Tap Dance
Do It: Lie on one side with one leg extended and the other bent. With one hand, gently separate and hold your lips on the sides, and apply a small drop of lubricant to your exposed clitoris. Then, with the opposite hand, start tapping it gently.
Why: Tapping, instead of rubbing, can cause rapid and intense sensations for those who find direct stimulation too intense.
