New sex positions, and trying out different sex positions are wonderful ways to enhance your sexual experiences. Everyone is likely to have differing opinions on what their favourite or best sex position is because there are so many to try! If you wish to impress a partner, there is no downside to trying out a different sex position so check out the ultimate list we have created below for amazing position suggestions that are sure to ignite some passion in the bedroom...at the very least you will have some kinky fun trying to master them!!
This is one of the most popular positions couples can do and it’s a whole lot of fun! The 69 is where the woman’s face is directly in front of the partner’s genitals and vice versa. This means that both parties can enjoy the pleasures of oral sex and (to make it even more fun) they can compete to try to get the other person to come first!
Cunnilingus or the “68” (the slang term for the woman’s oral pleasure), where your partner goes “down” and then pursues your orgasm. This position allows you to show your partner how much passion you have for each other so get wild! Grab their hair while they work their magic, moan, tell them how good it feels, wiggle your hips to show them how much you love what they do to you.
Fellatio or “The 67” (the slang term for the man’s oral pleasure) is where you perform oral pleasure on your partner or go “down” on the other and pursue their orgasm. Your partner uses this visual aid to help chase their orgasm and you can help them along by looking into their eyes, being really enthusiastic about doing oral sex and caressing their genitals and thighs while performing oral sex. Doing this shows them how hot you are for them and that will turn them on even further.
This is perhaps the most talked about sex position. Everyone knows what the missionary is and it still remains a classic and a go-to position for many couples. You get into this position by lying down on your back with your legs extended into the air, your partner nestles between your legs and begins to penetrate you. With intimacy at its focal point you and your partner can reap the benefits of watching each other’s facial expressions while you bring each other to climax.
This position, originating from the Kama Sutra, allows you to keep the intimacy from the missionary but enhances the depth and angle of penetration. Just simply hoist one of your legs onto his shoulder and let the new sensation of a fuller and tighter squeeze envelope you.
This position, also originating from the Kama Sutra, creates greater stimulation of the g-spot by changing the angle and shape of the vagina. This causes the g-spot and cervix to become much more open to stimulation during intercourse, it also makes the clitoris available for play so either you or your partner can caress you to an amazing climax. To get into this position, your partner kneels up while your legs are extended upwards and placed on their shoulders, then your hips/thighs can be used for leverage during sex.
This position is a variation of the Yawning Stretch where instead of the legs being extended or bent at the knees, you go into the crossed leg position while lying on your back and then you or your partner holds onto your ankles. This position opens up the vagina and allows for deep penetration and can stimulate the cervix, g-spot and clitoris all at once. If you are keen to try the kinky side of things, using restraints on the wrists and binding them to the ankles suddenly transforms this sex session into a bondage session.
This is another popular and well known position, allowing the woman a more active role and allowing for more control over the angle of intercourse and for more stimulation of the g-spot and cervix. To get into this position, your partner lies down on their back and you sit directly on top of their genitals. You can then employ various different movements such as grinding in circular motions or rocking back and forth that can heighten both yours and their sexual excitement.
This is a variation of the Cowgirl, where you face away from your partner and lean back to gain stability by holding onto your partner’s shoulders, hands or chest. You can also lean forward slightly and use your knees/thighs as leverage to create a more bouncy rhythm.
This position varies on the original Reverse Cowgirl position as the woman still faces away from their partner but is now leaning forward and holding onto the partner’s legs. This allows for deeper penetration, self stimulation of the clitoris and a great visual for the recipient.
This position gives greater control over the speed, angle and intensity of the stimulation during intercourse. The woman squats over the man to get into this position, it requires balance but is a great position for stimulation of the g-spot and cervix.
This is a variation of the Squat as the woman turns away from their partner but stays in the same position.
This is another popular and well known position where the man is kneeling behind the woman, who is on her hands and knees. This position stimulates the cervix and the g-spot. To get even more stimulation from this position, we recommend to lower your head onto a pillow so that your hips are higher, this makes penetration deeper and allows for better cervical stimulation. This position also allows your partner to caress your clitoris during intercourse for added intensity!
This position is a variation of Doggystyle. It allows the angle of penetration to become deeper as your legs are in between the man’s legs (which gives a tighter squeeze!) and he is using the leg that he isn’t kneeling on to gain more momentum and power to thrust forward.
This is an advanced version of Doggystyle. This position requires stamina and balance as the man mimics the mounting stance of animals. This is a definite position pleaser as it gives deeper penetration, stimulation of the g-spot and cervix and it shows off the primal sexual instinct that is inside your man!
This position occurs when the woman lies stomach down on the bed and the man sits with his knees either side of the woman’s hips. This makes for a greater stimulation of the g-spot and is great for tighter intercourse.
The Lovers allows for very intimate sex. This position occurs when the man lies directly on top of the woman and the woman raises her hips upwards. This makes penetration deeper and allows for g-spot stimulation to occur.
This position is the same as the Lovers but with one difference. The left or right legs for both the woman and man are bent.
This position is where the woman lies on her side and the man kneels with his knees either side of the woman’s outstretched leg. The other leg is then hitched onto the man’s shoulder or wrapped around the man’s waist.
This position really stimulates the g-spot and allows either you or your partner to stimulate the clitoris. You and your partner can use this position almost anywhere inside your house: on the table, on the dresser, even the washing machine! This is a really good position for spontaneous sex.
Lie down towards the edge of a bed or a table and place your calves on your partner’s shoulders. Push your hips upward and your partner can use your hips as leverage.
C.A.T (Coital Alignment Technique)
The C.A.T. stands for the coital alignment technique; this involves your partner positioning themselves between your legs, and then shifting upward so their chest is more above your shoulders. You then bend your knees and lift your hips up so that the base of his penis is resting on your clitoris. The motion here should be a rocking back and forth motion rather than the normal penetrative style to rub against your clitoris and the walls of your vagina.
M.C.A.T (Modified Coital Alignment Technique) or The Nirvana
This is a slightly different version to the normal C.A.T, instead of having your legs outside your partners, your legs are in between their legs. This modified position gives you a tighter fit and gives a more intense sensation.
For this position, you simply lie on your back on a table or bed (preferably a table, it is called the countertop for a reason!) and rest your legs on your partner’s shoulders, they then penetrate you whilst standing and as a result, they can control the depth, speed and strength of their thrust by holding onto your hips.
This is an alternate version of the scissors where you kneel above your partner with one leg outside of their leg and one leg in between. Your partner then has to bend the leg that is in between your legs so you can use their knee as leverage. You can then put a hand on their chest for more leverage and the shift in position makes for amazing g-spot stimulation.
This is a position that demands strength and balance. The easiest way to get into this position is by sitting on your bed and allowing your partner to pick you up, while they hold onto your hips as you hold onto their shoulders; by interlocking your ankles together you can make sure you don’t fall off.

To get into this position you start in the classic missionary position, then slowly bring your hips off the bed and plant your feet firmly down by your partner’s knees. Your partner then leans on their hands and knees, keeping themselves off of your body, to maintain balance. They have to keep as still as they can while you thrust your hips against theirs.
The X-Rated position requires a good degree of flexibility. To begin with, your partner lies on their back on the bed and you lower yourself onto them to get into the Reverse Cowgirl position. You then lean down until your chest is resting on their legs and you then straighten out your legs so your partner can hook their arms under your thighs and can hold onto your hips. You then hook your arms under their legs to gain some leverage to rock back and forth.
The Padlock is so named because you “lock” your legs around your partner’s hips while resting on a table or sturdy surface. To get into this position, you rest your bum against the edge of a sturdy surface like a table and have your partner stand between your legs.

You then squat over them and lower yourself down to be penetrated. You can then either lean back and hold onto their thighs and use them as leverage to bounce up and down or you can hold hands with your partner and have them place their feet on to the middle of your back so you can use that and the hand holding as leverage for penetration.
This position gives a lot of intimacy and passion. To get into the Curled Angel position, both you and your partner lie on your sides, back to back.

The Dolphin position gives an exciting way to experience different depth feelings during penetration due to your lifted hips. To get into this position, you lie on your back and have your partner in between your legs and holding your hips up, this elevated position makes blood rush to your head, making the stimulation feel a lot more intense than it normally would.

The Frog position was given its name by the shape you make whilst attempting it. Your partner is sitting on the edge of a bed or chair and you are squatting over them with your feet on their thighs.

Your partner needs to grab hold of your thighs and as you jump up, he needs to lift you and brings your thighs up to his hips. Then he can then enter you and hold onto your hips for leverage and to keep you in this elevated position.
This is best used for couples where the man has a well endowed penis as this position decreases the amount of depth available to be penetrated. To get into this position, have your partner lie down on their back, sit down on their penis and then lie on top of them. Slowly bring your legs over their thighs so that your legs now are in between their legs. This position also allows for intimacy during sex.
The Advanced Peg is a lot better for more depth play and if you want to have a bit more aggressive sessions.

The Lustful Leg requires some degree of flexibility as this position requires you to be able to rest your ankle on your partner’s shoulder. We suggest that the best way to get into this position is by starting out with your partner performing cunnilingus on you while you are standing and they are kneeling down. You can then hook your knee over their shoulder to give them access to your private area and then if they slowly start to stand, you allow your leg to stay on their shoulder and let it slowly slide into place. Not only does this method make you ready for penetration but it makes an entire session a lot more exotic and passionate.
The Squat Balance requires some serious balance and strength from both partners as it is quite the position to maintain. To get into this position, we suggest using a low height bed or table to stand on, have your partner stand behind you and hold onto your bum/hips to help lower you into a squat and to help with leverage over thrusts.
The Magic Mountain is a really good position for a lazy sunday session, all it requires are some extra cushions and you are good to go. Stack your cushions up in pile so that you can lean on them in the doggy position, this means you don’t need to lean on your hands and you can relax into the position. Your partner can then lean over you and be able to gently thrust while holding onto you.

The Propeller position is an alternative version of the Backwards Cowgirl, where you are lying down on the bed and your partner is the one on top and instead of them squatting over you, they are lying down and are grinding instead of penetrating. This position is great for partners who want to explore more of their sexual fantasies such as anal play by touching and gently playing with your partner’s anus.
The Rock ‘n’ Roller is an alternative version of the Bandoleer as your partner instead leans over your body and your legs are either side of their face. This makes a much more tighter sensation and your partner is able to thrust much more deeply than previously.
The Fan is an alternative version of the Plough but instead of your partner lifting your legs up, they penetrate you from behind while you are leaning on a flat stable surface and they push apart your bum cheeks for different depth sensations. This position is suitable for very quick and passionate sessions.
The Rowing Boat is quite the pretzel of a position as you can see! It can however, give you very tight and intense sensations and it can be an incredibly sensual position to try. To start off with, you and your partner should sit in front of each other, then inch closer together and have your feet outside of your partner's hips and their feet outside of yours. Then hook your arms under your partner’s knees and have them do the same to yours, you both can then control the flow and speed of each thrust and can do this all while looking at each other’s expressions.
The Suspended Scissors is not a position to take lightly. This position also requires strength, balance and endurance to be able to begin and maintain it. To get into this position, you can start out in the Plough position just without the low height table, then lean more so on one of your hands and raise the other hand to hold onto your partner’s arm. Your partner can then hold onto your hips for leverage over the thrusts.
The Afternoon Delight is an amazingly lazy yet sensuous position to do as you both can be lying down on a bed, all you have to do is lie perpendicular to your partner and place your lower legs on their hips while they are leaning on their side.

The Triumphal Arch is definitely a position that requires a degree of flexibility and endurance. To get into this position, you start by kneeling over your partner’s lap with their legs stretched outward.

This position is also great for letting your partner play with your breasts or clitoris during your session.
This position is an easy one to try out. To begin, we recommend you start in the missionary position but have your partner lean over you on their hands and knees. You then have to lift up and grind your hips against theirs.

The Super 8 position is very similar to the Classic position however it differs slightly by introducing a pillow or cushion at the small of your back to lie down on so that your back is arched. This aims your hips downwards and causes the vaginal cavity to change its angle, therefore heightening sensations and causing more pleasure for you and your partner.
The Crossed Keys is so called because of the position your partner puts your legs into while penetrating. To get into this position, you should be lying down on a bed or table that is at the best height for your partner to penetrate you.

The Landslide requires some form of manipulation to get into position. To position yourself, you must be lying down on a bed or table on your stomach and have your legs slightly open. Your partner then must sit between your legs and shuffle forward until their feet are planted either side of your chest and they are leaning back on their hands. They can then control the speed and depth of the thrust by moving back and forth like a pendulum.
To get into the Snail position, begin in the Grip position (see number 64) and place your ankles on your partner’s shoulders and have them shuffle forward until your hips are completely off the bed or table that you both are on. Having you in this particular position opens up your vagina for much deeper penetrations and the movement of each thrust naturally makes it easier to alter the flow of penetration.
The G-Force position is very similar to the Snail position but differs in that your partner is holding onto your ankles and pushing your legs onto your chest to alter the angle of penetration. This allows them to have complete control over the angle including the speed and the strength of the thrusts while all you can do is hold on and take it all in your stride.
The Perch is very similar to the Amazon position but instead of you straddling your partner on a chair, your partner is perched on the edge of the chair and you are sitting slightly on their lap. This allows you to control the thrusts by leaning on your knees and keeping your back arched.

You lean forward to begin with so they can easily penetrate you from behind. They have to lean backwards and use their hands as leverage while you have to lean back into an upright position and hold onto their hips for balance. You can then easily grind/thrust against each other.

For more well endowed partners, penetration is able to happen.
The Standing Wheelbarrow is a variation on the “Suspended Scissors” position where instead of leaning one hand on the floor, you are instead leaning on both which helps to maintain your balance. This position is more stable and can be either in the more relaxed position where your partner is holding onto your hips or he is holding onto your ankles while you have pulled your legs upwards to your chest, your partner needs to be bent at the knees to accommodate for the variant position.
The Lotus Blossom is a position straight from the pages of the Kamasutra, which requires your partner to get into a crossed ankle seated position and for you to then sit into their lap and cross your ankles behind their back. This allows you to then control the thrusts by holding onto their shoulders and they can help by holding onto your waist or holding underneath your bum.
The Mermaid position is so named because of the shape you make whilst in it. To get into this position, you lie down on a table or bed that puts you at the same approximate height as your partner’s hips. Your partner then lifts your legs up in the air until they are straight, they then hold onto your feet and flex them slightly so that they are going backwards. This makes your legs stay straight and can give your partner leverage over the thrusts.

To get into this position, have your partner lie down on a bed or table and have them lean back on their hands, you then squat over them and lean back until you can either lean on the bed or lean on their knees.

The Crisscross position is easy enough to get into as you lie on your side on a bed and your partner goes in between your legs on their side as well to make a “X” shape.

The Jugghead position is where your partner is lying down and has their feet and calves resting on an elevated surface, such as the arms of a sofa, and you are on your hands and knees over them. The elevation causes your partner to gain a lot more control over the strength and speed of the thrusts.

This is named due to the intimate greeting with your partner’s crotch. The best way to get into this position is by lying on your back on a bed, a table, the floor etc. and have your partner kneel above your chest to give you full access. This is a great way to give pleasure if you have problems with your knees or if you get back pain during fellatio.
This is an alternate version of the F-Face, where you lean your head over an edge like a bed or a table, and your partner leans over your head so you can perform fellatio. This is a really good position if you want to delve into an act called “deep throat”, the act of opening up your throat for deep fellatio.
The 69 - Inverted is exactly what it sounds like in that you are in the classic 69 position with the exception that your partner is on top of you. This position means you are better able to practice the technique called “Deep Throat”, especially if your head is dangling over the edge of the bed as that angle really opens up the throat and reduces your gag reflex.

They can then wrap their arms around your waist to secure you to them and then slowly bring themselves into a more upright position. As they do so, you should wrap your arms behind their back so that you help with being held upright. Your partner then can pleasure you with their mouth and tongue while in this standing position.

This position does take some time to get used to it and you need to be able to trust the objects you are using to not suddenly slide off to the other side of the room.
The Ankle Grabber is exactly what the name suggests! You grab your ankles while standing and your partner kneels behind you and pleasures you until you think you may pass out!
The Face-To-Face position focuses on you not being able to control the motion of thrusting nor the speed, strength or angle. It requires you to fully trust your partner and rely on them to keep your balance. To get into this position, your partner needs to be seated on a sturdy chair or ottoman and you need to then straddle him. Bring your legs up so your feet aren’t touching the floor and hold onto their shoulders. They then should wrap their arms around your back and lean forward slightly to gain some leverage over the thrusts.
The Easy Rider position is almost as easy as it suggests! Your partner needs to lean on a chair or an ottoman so that both their legs and head are over the edge of the sides, you then straddle them and using your hands on their chest and planting your feet firmly on the floor, use that leverage to thrust up and down on them to make this session an “easy ride”!
This position is incredibly advanced and should only be done by a couple who are confident in their trust with each other and have enough strength, balance and endurance to maintain this position. The Squat Thruster position is where you are leaning on the top of your back with your legs in the air and your bum leaning on a solid surface like a bed or wall. Your partner then straddles your bum and holds onto your ankles to keep them upright and then thrusts up and down, back and forth.
The Simultaneous Push Ups position is where you are leaning on the floor with your elbows and your hip and legs are resting on the curve of a low height chair. Your partner then lies on top of you and leans on their own hands so that they are higher than you and can really control their thrust.
The Back to Back position is just like how it sounds except with a twist. You are leaning on your hands and knees on a small chair or ottoman so that your bum is in the air but also over the edge of the furniture. Your partner is then kneeling on a pillow or cushion for some extra height and is penetrating you from behind; they can use your hips, shoulders or hair for leverage to add more strength or speed to their thrusts.
The Educator position is there to tick off any school girl/boy fantasy you have, by combining the use of a chair and a table, you can straddle your partner and lean on the table to really ride them while they are leaning on the edge of the chair. This position can easily become one of your favourites if you aren’t careful!
The Jump Off is quite the position that requires a lot of flexibility. You need to straddle your partner with your back to them and to be resting the tops of your feet on the edge of the chair, or if that is too uncomfortable plant your feet securely on the edge of the chair. This means your partner holds onto your wrists and uses them as leverage to pull and push your body to grind back and forth.
The ‘V’ position requires good balance and endurance to maintain for long periods of time so this should be taken into account before beginning. Your partner needs to kneel on a bed so that their bum is resting on the heels of their feet. Then you need to scoot along the bed on your bum until you are essentially in your partner’s lap; they should then grab underneath your bum and pull you up until they can penetrate you. You can then hook your legs over their shoulders and lean back to rest on your hands. They can then thrust easily by lifting you up and down or by lifting themselves off the heels of their feet and using the space between their legs to thrust within.
The Compressed ‘V’ is essentially a complete copy of the ‘V’ except that instead of leaning back on your hands, you lean forward and hold onto your partner’s shoulders and they wrap their arms around your back to use for leverage to thrust. This position compresses your legs and body which makes a tighter sensation and your partner’s pubic bone stimulates your clitoris during play.
The Alternate Lotus is a good version of the Lotus to do if you suffer from knee pain when bent for long periods of time as this position asks you to extend your legs instead of wrapping them around your partner’s body and leaning on your partner’s knees to help with balance and to thrust yourself up and down on your partner’s penis.
The 69 - Sideways position is perfect for couples who have problems with the normal 69 position, it is perfect for a very casual and non stressful session. To get into this position, both you and your partner lie down sideways but in opposite directions then both lift up the leg that is closest to the ceiling so that you have better access to the crotch area. You both then can snuggle in close, wrap your arms around each other and go to town!
This is a variation on the missionary position as your partner now holds onto your thighs for leverage and your legs are loosely held in the air. This relaxed stance in your legs makes penetration easier and deeper.
This is a standing position where you face away from your partner and lean slightly forward and they penetrate you from behind and use your hips for leverage. You may find it easier to use a table to lean on for balance.
This is definitely a position for those with good core strength and balance. Your partner stands as you wrap your legs around his hips/waist while they support you by holding you using your lower back or holding you by your bum. For extra support, you can lean against a wall while in this position to make it easier for deeper penetration. This position is great for spontaneous sex as you can easily find a lonesome wall!
The Star position is a variation on the Cross position where your partner leans backwards and keeps their balance by leaning on their hands. This position makes thrusting a bit easier and turns both you and your partner into a bit of eye candy during the session.
This does require some flexibility and stamina from both parties to maintain the position for long periods of time. To get into this position, your partner sits upright with their legs loosely outstretched in front of them, you sit in their lap and curl yourself forward to hold onto their ankles while keeping your feet planted by their knees. They then can hold onto your waist or hips and can cuddle you from behind while in this position.
Similar to “The Passionate Lovers” position with the variation being that you use your elbows for balance and keep the upper half of your body upright to make a curved 90° angle. Your partner then penetrates you from behind.
The Tominagi position is a Kamasutra position where you are lying down on your back with your knees together and lifted as close to your chest as possible. Your partner is then kneeling either side of your hips and is leaning slightly over you, you then place your feet on their chest and they can rest some of their weight on you to keep your legs as close to your chest without hurting you. This position makes your vagina more open and more angled which creates a very intense feeling and makes it feel a lot tighter. The open kneeling position your partner is in allows for better thrusting and can allow for easy transition from normal sex to anal sex.
This position isn’t about penetration. It is about intimacy and the tease before the act. To get into this position you and your partner stand face to face and have your genitals touching, you can then gently thrust together so that you create a gliding action over each others genitals for an intimate and teasing sensation.
The Hinge position is so named after the 90° angle you need to have your leg at to make it work. You need to be on your hands and knees with your legs apart, your partner needs to have one knee between yours and their other foot planted firmly on the bed close to your waist level. They then need to reach out with the hand that is opposite to the non kneeling leg and lean on the bed with it. This position allows the thrusts to become deeper and can become as romantic or aggressive as you both want.
To get into the Slip position your partner needs to kneel as low to the bed or ground as possible and lean back, you then have to “slip” up their thighs and plant your feet firmly either outside or inside your partner’s ankles (whichever is better for you both). This position is great for showing how much you like to pleasure each other as you can both thrust with each other and you can play with your clitoris and the base of his penis to create extra sensation.
The Balancing Act is exactly what you would imagine it would involve, someone doing some serious circus balancing acts! For this position, your partner needs to be lying down on their back and to have their legs bent and open so that you can nestle between them. You then should sit down on their penis and either keep both hands down to play with your clitoris and fondle your partner’s balls or keep yourself balanced by holding onto your partner’s knees/legs. Then you and your partner need to lift up your legs so that neither of your feet are touching the ground; sensations are made by grinding in rocking and circular motions.
The Basket is a relatively simple position to get into, your partner has to be leaning against something like a wall or the backrest of a sofa with their legs relaxed, you then have to squat over them and hold onto their shoulders or if you are on a sofa, use the edge of the backrest. Your partner then helps keep your balance and momentum by holding onto your hips. This position is great for spontaneity.
Much like the “Squat Balance” except with a little twist. You have to be standing on a stool or table that is higher than the one you would use for the Squat Balance position and really squat down so that both you hips align together. You can lean on your knees to get some balance and to help maintain this position, your partner then has to penetrate you and hold onto your hips for leverage over thrusting and to help keep your balance.
The Whisper position is named after the much easier way you both can whisper into each other's ear. Your partner needs to first lie down on a bed or table and you need to straddle them. Once they have penetrated you, lie down on their chest so that your head is in the crook of their neck and you can easily whisper to them. They then can wrap their arms around you or can hold onto your hips for leverage over the thrusts.
The Clip is essentially the “Cowgirl” position except you are leaning back on your hands while your partner is stimulating your clitoris whilst penetrating. This gives an extra oomph to the well known Cowgirl position.
The Fold Position is so named due to the shape that your partner makes because they literally fold over you. So to get into this position, lie between your partner’s outstretched legs and then put your feet on the bed so you have some leverage over grinding against your partner. Your partner then has to lean over you and hold onto your shoulders to help push you back and forth on their penis.
Definitely made to cause a head rush, the Waterfall position is quite easy to master but will take some serious endurance to maintain. To get into this position, start out in the “Amazon” position but raise up your legs so that they are not touching the floor; hold onto your partner’s arms and lean backwards until you are now touching their legs with your back. Your partner now needs to hold onto your shoulders to keep you in place.
Made to hit all the right places, the Hound position is a variation on the “Doggystyle” position where instead of kneeling in between your partner’s legs, they are kneeling between yours. This switches the angle and by bringing your chest to the floor, it tilts your hips downwards which is great for g-spot stimulation.
The Right Angle is great for a show of dominance. To get into this position, you need to find yourself a table that, when you grab the furthest edge with your fingers and lie flat on the surface, is too tall for your feet to touch the ground. You need to assume this position and hold on as much as you can. Your partner then can stand behind you and penetrate you while caressing and showing you who's boss!
The Backwards Slide is definitely made for the adventurous. You get into this position by having your partner lean on a slanted sex aid or a small mountain of pillows against the wall and to sit on a low height table, chair or ottoman. You then squat over your partner so that your feet are either side of their hips and you lean right the way back until you are resting on the floor with your hands. You can then lift your hips in an up-down motion to control the thrusts while your partner holds onto your hips or caresses your body.
The Wide Open position is a variation on the Indrani position (see number 139) where instead of you hooking your feet under your partner’s arms, you keep your legs relaxed at their waist and let them dangle down. You partner also doesn’t lean over you, instead they just hold onto your waist to gently thrust or really get into the session.
Indrani is another Kamasutra position where you are lying down on a bed and you bring your legs up to your chest, a pillow under your head to make your chin lean towards your chest and your partner is kneeling under you so that your hips are leaning on their thighs. You then hook your feet underneath your partner’s arms to keep your legs in that elevated position and they lean forward to grind and thrust up to you.
Suspended Congress is a position that we can see would be a spur of the moment one, where you both threw caution to the wind and jumped each other! To get into this position if you want to plan it for the future, your partner will need to lean slightly on a wall but will need to place their feet further along the floor so that they are leaning at an angle. You then need to jump up and wrap your legs around their waist and they need to catch you by your hips, the slanted angle they are in helps to keep you on their waist better. You then hold onto your partner’s shoulders and can bring yourself up and down on them.
The Prone Tiger position is like a fusion of the “Fold” position and the “Seated Ball”, as to get into this position your partner needs to start off in the fold position while you need to squat over him in the seated ball position. Then you lean forward until you are resting on their legs and then slide your legs back until you are resting on your knees. Your partner can then lean over you and use your hips/bum to direct the thrusts.
The Shoulder Stand position is definitely not for the faint hearted, This position is great for grinding, for oral pleasure and for both vaginal and anal pleasure too. To get into this position, lie down on a bed and have your partner kneel between your legs. Then have them lift up your body by placing their hands under your bum and then place the backs of your knees on their shoulders. You then have to maintain a straight position while leaning on the top of your back and holding onto your partner’s calves. Your partner can then penetrate you for an extra tight sensation or they can grind against your vulva for some amazing foreplay.
The Sidekick position is a lovely position to get into if you want deep and fulfilling. To get into this position, you lie down on the bed with your one leg bent at the knee and lifted to the side. Your partner needs to straddle your outstretched leg and then stretch out their leg to get as low onto your leg as possible. They can then hold onto your hips or bum to direct how deep or how fast the thrusts will be.
The Shoulder Holder position is much like the Snail position where your partner is leaning forward over you and your legs are up and on their shoulders except in this position you have both of your legs on the one shoulder, this pushes you slightly to the side and makes each thrust now feel tighter and different every time.
The Stair Master is the position to do when you both want to conquer the stairs. To get into this position, kneel on one step and lean on your hands on the step above. Have your partner kneel down on the step below your knees and penetrate you from behind. This position not only lets you conquer one of the most coveted places in your home to do naughty things on but it really stimulates your g-spot and makes sure that your partner is rubbing against all the important places.
The Thigh Master is an amazing position to add more positions to foreplay or to help stimulate both your clitoris and g-spot. To get into this position, have your partner lie down on a bed and facing away from him, straddle only one of his legs on his hip bone. They then have to raise their knees so that their legs are bent and you can hold onto their knees for balance and leverage. If your partner is well endowed, this position can help ease you into the length as you are in control with how much depth the thrusts are at and with you going up and down you are rubbing your clitoris along the length of your partner’s thigh which can definitely add extra pleasure.
The Sideways Samba is very sassy indeed and in order to get into this position, you need to be lying down on your side while your partner leans over you with their hands on either side of your waist. You then lift both of your legs up towards your chest but keep them as straight as possible so that they eventually are 90° from your chest. Your partner needs to be slightly lower down the bed from you as the angle to penetrate has changed, but once that has happened they can hold onto your body to help thrust and to either romantically whisper sweet things or to make things a lot more dirtier!
The Side Saddle position is great for couples who get claustrophobic easily as you can have the same amount of intimacy without being in each other’s personal spaces. To get into this position, your partner needs to be lying down on a bed and you need to squat over them sideways, so that your feet are on the one side of their body. You then lean back until you are holding yourself up with your hands, you can then rock your hips in a back-forth, up and down or circular motion while keeping eye contact with each other for that amazing intimacy.
The Titanic is so named after the monumental and iconic pose of Jack and Rose at the bow of the ship. This position is a very adventurous one to choose and having upper body strength and balance is a major plus for attempting this position. The best way to get into this position is by starting out in the “Right Angle” position, your partner needs to hoist your legs up so that your legs are now located either side of their hips and you need to squeeze gently with your thighs to keep them in that position. You then grab hold of your partner's body and lean back so you are no longer resting on the table.
This position requires a lot of strength from both parties. Have your partner lie on the bed with their feet planted firmly on the floor, then get into the standard 69 position. Your partner then has to wrap their arms around your middle firmly so you don’t fall and then slowly and carefully stand up. It is essential that your partner is strong enough to be able to hold you up and keep you in place as well as keeping their balance and concentration so as not to drop you.
