    a.k.a. Lazy Girl

    Benefits: The ultimate sex position for oral on the go, use this to get her in the mood and help her cut loose

    Have your partner sit on a chair with her legs wide open. You take it from there. This is a good sex position for either beginning the slow build-up with loose, broad, strokes, or ending with strong suction. Your partner is able to easily guide you, and she’s able to get a full view of you between her legs, which is a turn-on for many women.

    Now try this: Switch to a swivel chair and turn it left and right as you hold your tongue stationary.

    Hot Tip — His

    Insert your index and ring fingers and stroke in a “come hither” motion to wake up her G-spot using this sex position. With either your tongue or other hand, apply pressure to her pubic bone. This dual stimulation executed just right will send her over the edge.

    4 / 10 4. Closed For Business

    Benefits: A variation of One Up that allows for slow buildup.

    Some women find direct clitoral stimulation uncomfortable. Having her close her legs during oral sex may help. Place your hand above her public mound applying light pressure, then rub your firm tongue on the area around the clitoris to add indirect stimulation.

  • 5. The Pretzel
    5 / 10 5. The Pretzel

    a.k.a. The Pretzel Dip, The Camel Ride

    Benefits: The deep penetration of doggy-style while face to face

    Kneel and straddle her left leg while she is lying on her left side. She will bend her right leg around the right side of your waist, which will give you access to enter her vagina. For many women, rear entry hurts their backs. This sex position allows her to lounge comfortably while enjoying deep penetration.

    Now try this: Manually stimulate her using your fingers. Or withdraw your penis and, holding the shaft with your left hand, rub the head against her clitoris to bring her to the brink of orgasm then you can reinsert when she wants you inside her.

    Hot Tip — Hers

    And ask her to direct you, faster, slower, lighter, harder.

    Hot Tip — His

    Be gentle with her clitoris. It’s more sensitive than your penis, so touch lightly at first. Some women even prefer gentle pressure around it rather than direct stimulation. Go soft, then increase speed and pressure.

    6 / 10 6. The G-Whiz

    a.k.a. The Shoulder Holder, The Anvil

    Benefits: Allows deep penetration and targeting the G-spot

    She lies on her back. You kneel between her legs and raise them, resting her calves over your shoulders. Rock her in a side-to-side and up-and-down motion to bring the head and shaft of your penis in direct contact with the front wall of her vagina. Because this angle allows for deep penetration, thrust slowly at first avoid causing her discomfort.

    7 / 10 7. Man's Best Friend

    a.k.a. Doggy-Style

    Benefits: Deep penetration and an erotic view.

    This could be your next move after starting in The Flatiron sex position. Entering her from behind, you’ll be able to thrust deep so the tip of your penis touches her cervix, an often-neglected pleasure zone. But you should do this slowly and gently. Some women find it painful.

    Hot Tip — Hers

    She may be able to increase the intensity of your orgasm by pushing her pelvic floor muscles outward, as if trying to squeeze something out of her vagina. This causes the vaginal walls to lower, making her G-spot more accessible.

    a.k.a. Downward Dog, The Belly Flop

    Benefits: Intensifies vaginal pleasure

    She lies face down on the bed, knees slightly bent and hips slightly raised. For comfort, and to increase the angle of her hips, she can place a pillow under her lower abs. You enter her from behind and keep your weight off of her by propping yourself up with your arms. This position creates a snug fit, making you feel larger to her.

    Now try this: You’ll last longer in this position if you switch to shallower thrusts and begin deep breathing.

    Hot Tip — His

    Less friction means less stimulation—and can help you last longer. Try using a very slippery silicon-based lubricant like Durex Play More, which may allow you to thrust longer before reaching orgasm.

    9 / 10 9. Butter Churner

    a.k.a. Squat Thruster

    Benefits: An extra rush of blood to her head to increase her ecstasy.

    Have your partner lie on her back with her legs raised over her head. This is not a plain Jane position! Squat over her and dip your penis in and out of her. Be extra careful to thrust lightly to avoid stressing her neck.

    Now try this: By removing yourself fully, you’ll give her the extremely pleasurable feeling of you first entering her over and over again.

    Hot Tip — His

    Novelty ignites passion by increasing your brain’s levels of dopamine, a neurotransmitter linked to romance and sex drive, says biological anthropologist Helen Fisher, PhD. The Butter Churner qualifies for novelty, but you don’t need to go to such extremes to sustain romance. Anything that’s new and different will do the trick.
