Steamy Sex Positions to Try Tonight
Time to Switch It Up
When did you last try a new sex position? Whether or not you're in a relationship, it's all too easy to fall back on a handful of tried-and-tested moves and forget the delicious variety available to you and your partner.
That's where Clare Cavanah and Rachel Venning come in. They're not only the founders of sex toy boutique and educational hub Babeland, they're the authors of Moregasm: Babeland's Guide to Mind-Blowing Sex
. With insight into everything from BDSM to birth control, Moregasm is an expert (yet relatable) roadmap to your best-ever sex life.
The book's inclusive, deftly illustrated guides to manual, oral, vaginal, and anal sex positions are our favorite part. We're thrilled to share them with you here, beginning with Cavanah and Venning's step-by-step suggestions for vaginal sex and then adding ideas for other forms of play each month. (And if you just can't wait, you can purchase the book, here). Some positions may be old favorites, others variations on classics, and still others completely new to you. Combined, they might just make for your best sex yet. Click through for the good stuff.
"Put a pillow or two under your butt or under your lower back. This will tilt your pelvis up to better match the natural angle of the penis or dildo. This is also nice if you suffer from back pain."
Life On the Edge
"Lie down on your back at the edge of the bed, with your thighs and legs dangling off. Bend your knees and put your feet on the ground. Your partner stands or kneels between your legs and enters you. Your partner gets a great view and control of a deep thrust. You get to kick back and enjoy."
"Put your ankles on your partner's shoulders. This will lift your butt in the air. Your partner can hold your butt or your legs, and can kiss and massage your feet. Your partner has total control over the thrusting. Not great for stimulating the clit."
"You and your partner are making a scissor shape, with your partner's leg between one of yours and the other outside it. Lots of pressure on your mons makes this position a cut above."
"Kneel and straddle your partner, facing the other direction. You can put your arms in front of you and lean on your partner's knees, or you can arch and lean back on your arms behind you. This does not allow easy eye contact, but you get a lot of control."
The Flying Buttress
"This is for show-offs. Your partner is on top but facing away from you, head at your feet. Entry can be difficult from this angle. You can tilt your pelvis up to help the cause. For some, this is enjoyable. For others, it requires too much flexibility."
Limbo Like Me
"If you are flexible enough, lean back so your head is between your partner's ankles. Then, your partner holds your hips to control the thrusting. This helps the penis hit the G-spot. Anybody's free hand (or vibe!) can rub the clit."
"Your partner kneels or stands behind you and enters you. Your thighs can be apart with your partner's thighs inside yours. If your partner's strong, they can (after penetration) lift and hold one or both of your legs—like a sexy wheelbarrow."
"You kneel by the side of the bed, facing it and bracing your arms against the mattress. Your partner kneels behind you. All the fun of regular doggy, but with solid support."
"You lie face down with one or two pillows under your pelvis, so your butt tilts up. Your partner lies on top of you and enters you from behind with legs either between or outside of yours. You have little control, but it sure is restful!"
The Side Roll
"Your partner lies on their side, leaning back a little, legs apart. You lie in front, backing onto the penis or dildo. Your thighs are together and resting between your partner's thighs. You can also get here by starting in Reverse Cowgirl, unbending your knees, and sending your legs out straight in front of you. And everyone tilts to the side."
Taking the L Train
"Your partner lies on their side. You lie on your side at a 90-degree angle, forming an L with your partner's body. Your chest faces the headboard. You bend your legs and put your knees over your partner's shoulders, your butt against the penis or dildo. Your partner enters you from there. Or, try the variation pictured, where you're on your back." [For the full story, head over to Refinery29!]
