These are the 12 best s ex pos itions for women that you definitely aren’t trying (but totally should). People often underestimate the importance of s ex pos itions.
According to Dr. Yvonka, clinical s exologist, “Mastering the pos itioning of your bo dies together is an essential part to making sure that the experience is pl easurable for everyone involved. And yes, you may find yourself in numbers of three or more, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.
However, you’re in charge of your own pleasure and speaking up when something doesn’t feel right during s ex. Each of our bo dies is designed differently and therefore, when something doesn’t feel good, say something and sw itch it up!
1. The Sn ake
“For women who want to reach org asm during inter course, The Sn ake tends to be a favorable pos ition,” says Astroglide’s resident s exologist, Dr. Jess.
You lie on your stom ach and your partner lies on top of you (entering from be hind if desired). You place your hand or a toy beneath your pubic mound or vulva, and rub and grind with the weight of your bo dy while your partner pu mps on top.”
2. Ta ntra
“I practice Ta ntra. Tan tra has much more to do with spirituality than s ex. The $ exual benefits of practicing some form of Ta ntra seems to be mind-boggling; from developing the ability to be multiply org asmic (yes, men too); to the ecs tatic ener getic org asms that last way longer than most of our measly 10 second experiences.
The main text of Tantric s exual practice is the Kama Sutra,” says Nikeema Lee, an author, intimate relationship coach, and certified law of attraction guide.
3. The Tripod
“While standing against or near a wall, your partner holds up one of your knees firmly in one hand and then makes love to you face to face. It then leaves the other hands free to explore and caress both of your bo dies. It allows him to pe netrate you deeper,” says Lee.
4. The Cat
n this po sition, you lie on their stom ach while your partner gr abs hold of your ankles in their right hand, lifts them high up and pen etrates you, all while rubbing your face, neck and chest with the other hand, says Lee. Talk about a workout. This po sition is best if you’re working with a man that’s well-en dowed.
5. The Flower in Bloom
“You draw up both of your knees until they nestle your BR ASTS; your feet rest in your partner’s armpits.
Your partner cups and lifts the bu tto cks with their palms spreads the thighs and places the heels next to their hips, while you caress your BR ASTS,” says Lee.
This po sition is ideal for a man with small peni s. Who knew!
6. Cowg irl
“This po sition is great for women struggling with achieving org asm. Again, a common misco nception is that org asm ‘should’ only be achieved through pe netration, but this is hardly the case for most women.

We need clit oral stim ulation and cowgirl is excellent for this. As you’re on top of your partner grinding back and forth (yes gentlemen, grinding, not bouncing), it simultaneously stimulates the clitoris and provides the pleasure of pe netration, which leads to a fantastic org asm,” says Dr. Yvonka.
Take it slow, spend time on the movement of your hips forwards and backwards, and really finding the perfect balance of friction.
7. Bottoms Up
Sometimes, “do ggy” style can be painful for women because it may get a bit too deep for comfort. And despite what po rnography tells you, deeper is not generally better. Dr. Yvonka shares that if you prop your hips with a pillow or a fancy ready-made s ex wedge pillow, it could help with perfecting the angle and it begins to feel quite nice this way.
“I usually encourage using a small bullet or vibrator in this pos ition while you’re gently being taken from beh ind. You will have an org asm that blows your mind,” she says.
8. Face Up Whe elbarrow
“I’m not caught up with all the names these days as they seem to change regularly, but this one is sort of a wheelbarrow po sition —only you’re face up with your partner gra bbing your l egs on either side. Or, you can place them on his shoulders while he’s on his knees facing you.
This feels great for both partners because it narrows the vag inal walls and allows for a tighter grip. If you aren’t up on doing your regular kegel exercises, I’d definitely recommend this one,” says Dr. Yvonka.
Again, adding a little vibrator for clitor*l stim ulation is an excellent way to heighten the org asms.
9. The Lazy D og
This is totally the lazy man’s do ggy style! “The girl lays on her stomach with her le gs slightly together, almost like she’s getting ready to do a plank exercise. The man comes from beh ind, just like do ggy style. It’s better when the girl’s bu ms arches up a little bit,” says Chelsea McCain, Adult Empire’s s ex toy manager.
“I like this po sition because who doesn’t want to be the lazy one sometimes during se x? You can get your hair pulled easily and your a$$ is still in a good posi tion for his view.
10. Adapted/Flat Do ggie Style
“I like pressure on my lower abdomen, so moving from do ggie to laying-down-do ggie has always been one of my favorites. It’s a little difficult to get the heights right, but it’s good when the guy’s standing up and I’m at the edge of some surface (like a bed or a table),” says Alex Fine, founder and CEO of DAME Products, creator of the #1 crowd-funded $ ex toy, Eva.
11. Miss ionary
“I do love missionary pos ition, and think it gets too much flack because it’s traditional. It’s still a great po sition, and women can easily change it up by bending her knees or by having the man alter the angle at which his bo dy relates to hers,” says Fine.
“I love 6–9-ing and I think we should include that more often in our minds as a se x pos ition. It gives the woman clitor l stim ulation, which isn’t always received during pen etrative se x,” says Fine.
