1. Reverse missionary
Straddle him with his legs together. “Some women love being on top so they can feel seductive.
Bonus benefit: You can rub your br**sts on top of him.
2. Hip hugger
When you’re on top, you get G-spot stimulation, plus you have more control of the rhythm and depth of penetration, deeper penetration also ups the odds of a vaginal climax. But in this position, with his hands guiding your hips, you can both drive the bus.
Bonus benefit: It can be difficult for men to keep strong erections when the woman is on top but because his legs are up, he has more leverage and can give stimulation to himself when he needs it.
You’ll feel relaxed and ultraconnected in this loving cocoon, though it can be a bit tricky to get into. Raise your top leg and take it slow. When men have trouble getting or staying inside you, they think they’re too small. So take your time and help guide him.
Bonus benefit: It’s great if you’re pregnant or worried about morning breath.
4. Hip flex-er
Start out supporting yourselves on your arms, then take turns: When one person leans back, the other does more work.
Bonus benefit: With this setup, women can get the kind of stimulation they want. Raise your hips and control the movement. Go deeper or more shallow. Feel your front, back, or side walls. Try thrusting or grinding.
5. Missionary – 45 degrees
Starting in the missionary position, he turns his body at a 45-degree angle. The v**ina is not nerve rich. Its purpose is to birth a baby, so you don’t really want too many nerves there. But you may experience more clitoral stimulation and sensation on the side of the vaginal walls, which can feel good to some women.
Bonus benefit: Try this position without penetration if you have pain or dryness issues—he will enjoy the friction of being between your legs.
6. On his lap—facing away
He sits on the edge of the bed while you, with your back to him, lower yourself down. You’ll get more leverage if your feet can touch the floor. You’ll both have free hands to stimulate each other. This position feels fun and young and sexy.
Bonus benefit: He’s perfectly positioned to hit your G-spot and reach around to help you climax.
7. Standing rear entry
This position allows for deep penetration up to the cervix.
Bonus benefit: You don’t need a bed—or a bedroom.
Kneeling, he straddles your left leg while you bend your right leg next to his body. You’ll both feel deep penetration, plus he can free up his hands to caress and stimulate you. Both partners will find this position relaxing, and for women, more relaxation means better, easier orgasms.
Bonus benefit: Men get tired during s*x, especially in missionary position. Sometimes endurance issues are for cardiovascular reasons and sometimes men can’t last because they can’t support themselves on their forearms and hands. In this position, he can relax and last longer.
9. Supported doggy style
Lie down with a pillow or two under your stomach so he can enter you from behind. With the added support, your lower back won’t hurt.
Bonus benefit: He’ll feel bigger (good for him), and the fit will be tighter (good for you).
10. On his lap—facing each other
He sits on the edge of the bed or chair while you, facing him, climb on top. Seated positions are great for G-spot and clitoral contact. Use your legs and pelvis to grind more than thrust so you can get clitoral stimulation as well.
Bonus benefit: Face-to-face s*x allows for eye contact and whispering to each other, which is important for women.
