Missionary Position Sex Doesn't Need to Be Boring!

Feeling kind of meh about missionary sex? You're not the only one. This standby has long scored a bad rep for being boring and vanilla—that go-to move when you'd rather relax (since he's typcially doing most of the work) than rock your worlds. Thing is, there's a ton of crazy-hot reasons to get excited about this old-school style and get it back on your favorites playlist again. Board-certified sexologist Justine Shuey shows you how to take missionary from basic to blow-your-winter-socks off.

The biggest gripe about missionary is that it doesn't exactly make it easy for women to climax. Luckily, you've got options. Shuey says that many new sex toys are specifically designed to be used during missionary sex to help you experience an explosive climax. She recommends We Vibes, which even has a wireless remote. "One end stimulates the clitoris from the outside while the other strokes the g-spot inside, all while your guy is inside you too," she says.

Missionary means full-on body contact, and all that touching (plus the sweat and heat) creates intense sensation, says Shuey. Have him place his palms against the floor or bed above your head, so his torso aligns closely with yours. Reaching your hands overhead lets him hold them while he thrusts, and you can lock lips too. Bring your bodies even closer by wrapping your arms around his shoulders or upper body, then pressing your fingertips into his back or butt.

When you're underneath, it's easy to forget about your legs and leave them out of the game. But shifting them a little or extending them the right way can be super intense. Shuey suggests wrapping your legs around his back; this changes the angle of penetration, so either you or he has better access to your clitoris. To get him to go deeper, sling them over his shoulders. Feeling bendy? Touch your knees to your chest, which narrows your vagina for a tighter feel, she says.

Placing a soft yet sturdy pillow or two under your butt gives you extra cushioning while he's thrusting—always a good thing for longer bedroom sessions. But even hotter, it elevates your pelvis so his upward thrusts can graze your G-spot, says Shuey. Hiking your legs over your shoulders also gets them out of the way and lets him have more control over his motions.

Sync Up Your Motions

A variation of missionary called the Coital Alignment Technique lets your guy stroke your clitoris and G-spot at the same time, making it a lot easier for you to reach orgasm. How it's done: He gets on top, edging forward until his pelvis is aligned with yours. You both rock up and down in sync, not in and out—so with each motion, your clitoris touches the base of his penis. The clitoral contact and synched-up rhythm won't just help you climax, it makes the elusive simultaneous orgasm possible.
