Top 40 Sex Positions You Need to Know

Whether you’re a rookie or an old pro, it’s never too late to learn new sexual positions. These expert sex positions will get your erogenous zones tingling and the heart pumping.

Consider this the mutual oral sex version of Queening (more on that later). This position also allows him to hit her G-spot with more ease than the traditional face-sitting position.

1. Missionary

The missionary position has earned a reputation for being vanilla and boring, but it’s an extremely versatile position that can provide lots of pleasure. It’s a great option for sexual penetration, non-penetrative sex (such as intercrural sex), and clitoral stimulation.

It’s also a gateway position, allowing you to move easily into positions like the lotus and oral sex. In addition, the hands-free nature of the position makes it easy to rub and explore erogenous zones or incorporate a sex toy.

To spice things up, try rubbing your body against your lover’s and kissing them. You can even whisper sweet nothings or raunchy words into their ear—it’s up to you!

2. Doggy Style

Although it’s far from the most dangerous sex position (that honor goes to woman-on-top), doggy style is responsible for over a quarter of the penile fractures reported to the ER. That’s why it should be used with caution.

The classic doggy style requires the person receiving to kneel on all fours while the penetrating partner gets behind them. However, if this isn’t comfortable for you or your partner, try a variation that allows the receiver to support themselves on their knees and arms.

This enables deeper penetration, is more likely to stimulate the G-spot, and can be enhanced by using a sex pillow or toy. And it can be done in a number of places, including the bedroom, the bathroom, and even the living room.

3. Cowgirl

When it comes to the receiver-on-top sex positions, few have as much oomph as cowgirl. Whether you’re doing regular or reverse, this position is super intense and allows the person on top to control the exact pace they want to go. Plus, it provides great clitoral stimulation, making it one of the most efficient ways to reach orgasm.

Start by lying down, then have your partner get into missionary position on their back, while you straddle them facing away from each other. From there, you can add a finger, penis, or sex toy for penetration. For a more playful touch, try incorporating teasing into your cowgirl session. It will make the experience even hotter.

4. Reverse Cowgirl

As the name implies, reverse cowgirl is like missionary but with the penetrator facing away from their partner’s feet. It’s an especially good option for anyone who finds eye contact a bit too intense during penetration, as it allows them to suck their partner inside.

It also gives the receiving partner a nice view of their partner’s backside during penetration, which can be super horny. Plus, it’s easy to do for the person on top, who can bounce up and down or grind their hips.

Just be sure to use lots of lube and communicate well, says Cooper. That way, the person on bottom can get exactly what they want without any risk of a slipped penis.

5. One-Leg Straddle

In this sexy variation on the classic missionary position, your partner scooches up on top of you closer to your head. Their legs wrap around your body, straddling your hips and a little farther up your back, for a head-to-toe contact that can orgasm on its own—and is even more satisfying when combined with a cock ring or other hands-free clitoral toy.

Like the cowgirl and the wheelbarrow, this yoga-turned-sex position can be a great foreplay to get you extra aroused before penetration. It’s also a great option for those who have difficulty navigating the more complicated positions. It also gives the partner on top full control of speed, depth and rhythm.

6. Counter Measure

This position is an excellent way for a man who might be experiencing loss of erection strength to keep the arousal going. It also provides clitoral stimulation for the woman, which is good for orgasms. “It can be more intense than oral sex,” Ross tells Romper, since it is more likely to trigger arousal through the penis.

Start in a normal missionary position and have your partner move her legs around your hips to make contact with the base of your penis. Overlap your legs, and then rock in a rhythmic fashion. This is a great position to combine with kissing for a very intimate experience. It’s the face-to-face version of spooning, so you get to gaze into each other’s eyes throughout a very intimate moment.

8. Spooning

Spooning is a cozy cuddling position that can be both innocent and sexy. But, the sexiest version involves lying on your back, with the taller partner behind the shorter one. The big spoon wraps their arms around the smaller spoon, like a cocoon.

White says that the straddling aspect of this position makes it very intimate, and she also recommends a little tweak to increase access for erogenous zones. “You can add a little more height by supporting your hips,” she suggests.

She also recommends a certain harness (try the SpareParts Deuce) to give the penetrating partner more control of depth during penetration. This can help avoid premature ejaculation, which 30-40% of men experience after penetration.
