If you and your partner are getting bored with the same old sex positions, try some wilder sex positions to kick things up a notch. These sexy positions will stimulate the g-spot and clitoral area in new ways to make for a fun and orgasmic night.
The missionary position gets a bad rap, but by varying the angles and using a pillow to support the female body, this is one of the most pleasurable wild sex positions.
1. The Scissor Position
This position entwines your legs, which is great for clitoral stimulation. It’s also a great option for people who need a slow buildup to orgasm.
Using gels and lube can make this position feel extra intense, says Rose. It’s also a great way to introduce grinding into your relationship.
This sex position is also good for those with vulvas because it allows them to clench their pelvic muscles. And as a bonus, Finn suggests, scissoring may even be more orgasm-inducing for some folks than traditional penetrative sex. But again, pleasure — not orgasm — should be the goal. The key is to find what works for you and your partner.
2. The Missionary Position
Although it’s perhaps one of the most familiar sex positions, missionary can still deliver a lot of pleasure and can be a good starting point for other positions. One way to enhance the sensation is to add a lubricant and have her splay her legs wide for better contact.
Another great option is to switch things up by incorporating grinding. Just like normal missionary, have her grind her vulva and clitoris against your penis to experience more intense stimulation.
A variation of missionary is hooking, in which the bottom partner hooks her legs up and over her partner’s shoulders. This may help to stimulate her clitoral hood and is effective in assisting female orgasm while providing the benefit of gravity, according to Landry.
3. The Cowgirl Position
The cowgirl position, also known as girl on top or rider, has one partner straddling or squatting onto the penetrative partner while being penetrated vaginally or anally. Pleasure coach and sex educator Violet says this classic can be made more exciting by using a sex pillow or wedge to give the receiving partner extra leverage and to align their genitals for comfortable insertion.
She also suggests experimenting with leaning in for a teasing kiss or tickling their legs. Increasing the clitoral stimulation with a bullet vibrator is another option. But most importantly, both partners should make sure the position feels good to them. This will help ensure a satisfying sex session.
4. The Cross Booty Position
Another great position for tantric sex, this one encourages skin-on-skin contact. “You can rock back and forth or envelop each other while stroking and stimulating each other’s clitoris,” White says. “This position also centers pleasure for the partner with a vagina, who is able to control speed and depth of penetration.”
After assuming the missionary position, have your partner move her legs apart until their bodies form an X shape with yours—think mermaid’s tail. Then, enter her with your penis (or sex toy) from the front of her pelvis. This is a great way to add sensations without pushing too hard, which can cause discomfort for some women.
5. The Reverse Cowgirl Position
This one’s a good fit for those who like to ride their partner, but don’t want to be face-to-face. The penetrating partner lies on their back, while the receiver straddles them genitals to genitals and rides them.
It’s a great position for deeper penetration, Soper says. It also works well with strap-ons because it leaves your hands free for stroking and grinding.
It can be a bit difficult to get into, especially for people who have never done this position before. It’s best to start with a seated variation and work your way up. Encourage open communication with your partner as you experiment and find what angle feels best.
6. The Pile Driver Position
Also known as the jackhammer position, the pile driver is not for beginners and requires plenty of endurance. It is a highly masculine position that can be used for vaginal or anal penetration and is perfect for couples who enjoy a dominant/submissive dynamic in the bedroom.
However, it is important to note that the pile driver position puts a lot of strain on the receiving partner’s neck, which could lead to discomfort if it is not supported properly (safeword usage is essential). It may be necessary to elevate the position with pillows or against a wall in order to make it more comfortable. It is also important to communicate with your partner about any discomfort.
7. The Cowgirl in a Chair Position
Cowgirl is a classic, and for good reason: It can really bring on climax, and it’s easy for the woman on top to control the pace and angle.
To try chair cowgirl, have your partner sit in a chair or on the bed and then straddle onto their lap. Then, you can take turns stealing glances at each other and showering them with attention.
To make it even sexier, you can also try the corner cowgirl position. Just be careful, as this position is one of the most common positions for penile fractures. It can be painful for both partners if it’s not done properly. And it’s important to not thrust too hard at first.
8. The Cowgirl in Socks
This is a good position to start off with for oral sex, but it also works well for clitoral stimulation. “The penetrating partner can hold their legs out wide and spread with their calves together like a mermaid’s tail,” says Goerlich.
The partner who is being penetrated can then bend forward and rest their thighs on hers to make the positioning even more intimate. It’s a great way to start off a lovemaking session and it can also be used for quick strokes, so it won’t take as much stamina for both partners. It’s also a great way to break out of a boring lovemaking rut. This is the perfect morning sex position for those who may be sleepy during lovemaking.
