If you want to spice up your sex life, why not try a new sex position? There are so many thrilling sex positions that can help you become even more intimate with your partner and tap into total erotic pleasure. Below are the best sex positions to help you mix it up and have even more fun in the bedroom.

Missionary sex position

Missionary Sex Position

The missionary sex position is one of the most common and is great for people of all genders. In missionary, both partners lay down so their bodies are aligned lengthwise, with one facing the other. The person on top uses their penis or strap-on to penetrate them. The person on the bottom can wrap their legs around their partner’s waist, put their legs on their partner’s shoulders, or hold them in the air in a “V” shape.

Doggie style sex position

Doggie Style Sex Position

The doggie style sex position involves one partner lying facedown and the other person penetrating them from behind. Doggy style can offer deeper stimulation than the missionary sex position and allow the person on the bottom to touch their clitoris or use a clitoral vibrator.

Cowgirl sex position

Cowgirl Sex Position

The cowgirl sex position involves a person with a penis or a strap-on dildo lying on their back, while the other person is facing them and straddles them, lowering themselves down for penetration. The person on top (or “riding cowgirl”) is in control of this position and can set the pace and rhythm. The person on the bottom can hold onto their hips, grab their butt, or they can clasp hands if desired.

Reverse cowgirl sex position

Reverse Cowgirl Sex Position

The reverse cowgirl sex position is similar to the cowgirl position, but in reverse, as the name suggests. The person on top is facing away from their partner, offering them a view of their backside. The reverse cowgirl sex position provides a different angle for penetration than cowgirl that may be more pleasurable for some people.

Toying with the cowgirl sex position

Toying with the Cowgirl Sex Position

The toying with the cowgirl sex position is another variation on the cowgirl, with the person “riding” cowgirl using a sex toy, such as a clitoral vibrator, on themselves.

Wheelbarrow sex position

Wheelbarrow Sex Position

The wheelbarrow sex position involves one person standing up and holding up their partner by the waist, then penetrating them from behind. This could be thought of as a standing doggy style position. The wheelbarrow only works if the person standing is strong enough to maintain their hold on the other person.

69 sex position

69 Sex Position

The 69 sex position involves one person lying on their back, with the other person lying on top of them so their faces and genitals are aligned. Each person can perform oral sex on the other and experience true double pleasure. 69 is the perfect sex position for anyone who loves to give and get head!

Side saddle sex position

Side Saddle Sex Position

The side saddle sex position lets the person on top take control and get plenty of clitoral stimulation. Side saddle is somewhat similar to the cowgirl, but with the person on top turned to the side. The person on top gets to ride their partner and go as fast or slow as they’d like, while also showing off their profile for their partner.

Face off sex position

Face Off Sex Position

The face off sex position features one person sitting in a chair and the other person facing them and straddling them. This position allows participants to enjoy sex in a different setting than they may be used to. Face off provides intimacy by the nature of its closeness in a way that some other sex positions may not.

Lotus sex position

Lotus Sex Position

The lotus sex position is similar to the face off position, but instead of sitting on a chair, the partners are sitting on the floor facing each other, with one straddling the other. For those who want intense clitoral stimulation, the lotus can be an excellent sex position, plus it brings you in very close contact with your partner from the head on down. If you like to kiss during sex while feeling intimately connected, the lotus may be right for you.

Ring Master Sex Position

Ring Master Sex Position

In the ring master sex position, a variation on the cowgirl sex position, the person on top rides their partner, who’s wearing a cock ring. This makes great use of the couples’ sex toy because each person can benefit from its power; if you use a vibrating cock ring, there’s even more opportunities for pleasure. This is an excellent way for both of you to get strong sexual stimulation. The person on top can adjust their angle for better sensations and clitoral stimulation.

Butterfly Sex Position

Butterfly Sex Position

In the popular butterfly sex position, the receiver lies on their back and aligns their butt with the edge of the bed, then raises their legs to rest on the giver’s shoulders. The giver penetrates them and can hold onto their hips, allowing for deep penetration and clitoral stimulation of the receiver, if applicable. Either or both partners can easily incorporate sex toys into the butterfly sex position, and it doesn’t require any pressure on the knees for the giver. The giver could use a strap-on dildo.

Spooning Sex Position

Spooning Sex Position

The spooning sex position is a relatively simple one in which the partners spoon, meaning they get into a cuddling position, each facing in the same direction. One person acts as the “big spoon” on the outside, curled around the “little spoon” on the inside. You can be essentially lying next to each other, with the big spoon penetrating the little spoon, or curled more closely around each other to form a “C.” There are several variations of the spooning sex position. You can experiment with how you approach this sex position to find the angle that works right for you.

Bonus Spooning Sex Position

Bonus Spooning Sex Position

This is a variation on the spooning sex position in which the “little spoon” uses a sex toy such as a clitoral vibrator for added stimulation.

Pretzel Sex Position

Pretzel Sex Position

The pretzel sex position, also known as the pretzel dip sex position, involves the receiver lying on their side and the giver entering them by parting their legs. The pretzel sex position can be used for anal or vaginal sex and is popular due to its deep penetration. It’s called the pretzel since it does involve the partners turning in a pretzel-like position. It’s a little more involved than a sex position such as the spoon, but can be a fun position to use to mix things up and add variety to your sex life.

Piledriver Sex Position

Piledriver Sex Position

The piledriver sex position is one of the most challenging sexual positions and requires you to take special care when performing it. The piledriver involves one person lying down on their back, with their legs held up and their back lifted off the ground. The giver squats above the receiver and can enter them vaginally or anally. The receiver either has to balance themselves on the ground or the receiver can hold their legs up for them. The piledriver sex position allows for deep penetration.

To help support the neck, consider using a sex pillow as a cushion.

Eagle Sex Position

Eagle Sex Position

The eagle sex position, sometimes called the spread eagle sex position, features the receiver lying on their back with their legs spread in a “V” formation, while the giver gets on top of them and penetrates them. This can be done for vaginal or anal sex; any type of anal play requires you to use sex lube since the anus isn’t self-lubricating. The eagle sex position can provide deep penetration and add to the feeling of intimacy.

Helicopter sex position

Helicopter Sex Position

There are two common versions of the helicopter sex position, one easier and one more challenging. The helicopter sex position is an advanced sex position that’s best tried once you’re familiar with your partner and you’ve done a few other positions first. In the easier version of the helicopter sex position, the receiver lies down on their stomach, raising themselves up on their elbows. The giver climbs on top of them facing away from them, so each of their faces are near the other’s feet. The giver penetrates the receiver from above, which will involve sliding their penis or strap-on dildo behind them in a slightly unusual position. If anything about this position feels awkward or uncomfortable, you may want to switch to the spooning or spooning anal sex position instead.

In the more challenging version of the helicopter sex position, the receiver balances on their elbows and knees, with their butt raised in the air. The giver positions themselves alongside their partner, puts their legs out behind them, balancing on their hands or elbows, and inserts their penis or strap-on dildo into the receiver. Some people prefer the helicopter position for anal sex since the anus is higher in the air and more accessible. If balancing is too challenging, the giver can rest their feet on a piece of furniture such as a bed or chair.

Speed bump sex position

Speed Bump Sex Position

The speed bump sex position is similar to spooning, in which the receiver lies on their stomach, and the giver lies on top of them and penetrates them from behind, either vaginally or anally. The “speed bump” is referring to the receiver’s butt, which can also be massaged or stroked while engaging in this position, or the receiver could wear a butt plug while enjoying vaginal penetration.

G-spot sex position

G-Spot Sex Position

The G-Spot sex position is designed for penetration that strokes and arouses the receiver’s G-Spot. The receiver lies on their back with their legs placed upon the giver’s shoulders. The giver uses their penis or a dildo to enter them. Whether the giver circles their hips or thrusts and retreats, the nature of this position provides easy access to the receiver’s G-Spot.

Butter churner sex position

Butter Churner Sex Position

The butter churner sex position has some similarities to the pile driver, since the receiver is also on their back, but with their legs folded behind them and their ankles resting against the sides of their head. But in the butter churner, the giver squats over the receiver and enters them vaginally or anally, rather than standing over them. This sex position allows for deep penetration and a feeling of intimacy and eye contact, if desired. The receiver may want to use a sex pillow to cushion the neck for this position too.

Missionary anal sex position

Missionary Anal Sex Position

The missionary anal sex position is a variation on missionary, with the giver on top and the receiver underneath, but in this case, for anal intercourse. Like all anal sex positions, you’ll need to use lubricant when engaging in the missionary anal sex position, whether with a penis or dildo and harness. There are specifically formulated anal lubes designed for long-lasting use and ease and comfort for backdoor play.

Spooning anal sex position

Spooning Anal Sex Position

The spooning anal sex position features the giver spooning the receiver and entering them anally from behind. This position also requires lubrication since the anus isn’t self-lubricating.

Reverse cowgirl anal sex position

Reverse Cowgirl Anal Sex Position

The reverse cowgirl anal sex position is a variation where the person on top faces away from the person with the penis or dildo, and rides them anally. This position also requires lubrication.

Standing doggy anal sex position

Standing Doggy Anal Sex Position

The standing doggy style anal sex position is just what it sounds like: the giver stands, while the receiver gets on their knees with their butt in the air so the giver can penetrate them anally. Since this is an anal sex position, it requires lubricant.
