The Ultimate Sex Position Guide

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed with the overabundance of sex positions out there. You have your go-to classics like missionary and doggy, and then roughly 30,000 spin-offs of each of those. How do you keep track of them all? Which hand goes where? Are you supposed to be facing each other or turned around? Is your head *really* supposed to be down there? (Yes.)

So you never have to resort to repeating the same old in and out every night, here are about a million ways to shake it up… in graphic detail. Consider it a crash course in all the best sex positions with an emphasis on your enjoyment.

Doggy Style Variations

The Booty Pop

Katie Buckleitner

In a rush? Naked? Horny? You’re in luck. Strip down naked and bend over a couch/side of the bed/stool/laundry hamper/whatever, and flash your butt to your dude because why the hell not. Brace yourself as he takes you from behind and don’t forget to look back every so often to admire the curve of your own back.

Give a Dog a Bone

Katie Buckleitner

Always wanted to try out spanking but never really been sure how to organically do it? Try this entry-level posish for optimal control. Get on your hands and knees on a bed or a couch — he’s standing. Make sure you discuss limits and safe-words prior to diving in, so you can focus on the pain/pleasure dynamic while you’re in the moment. If you wanna get really into character, you can also incorporate some begging while the spanking is going on.

Don’t Think You’re Ready for This Jelly

Katie Buckleitner

It’s called ‘jelly’ because of all the lube you need for anal sex, haha get it? No but seriously, you will need a lot. For anal newbies and veterans alike, this spooning position is great because it allows you the space to relax and ease into it. Plus, no eye-contact! Feel free to make as many weird faces as you want.

Boob-centric Positions

The Golden Globes

Katie Buckleitner

Do your best Instagram influencer plank and go stiff as a board on top of your partner, squeezing your knees and thighs together to wiggle against them (the added friction is great for clitoral stimulation.) Dangle your boobs over their mouth and see if they can stand the torture.

The Ta-Ta Tease

Katie Buckleitner

Ah, ye old classic Titty Fuck of yore. So much more than schoolyard myth, this version lets you have a hand free so that it’ll actually do something for you too. While seated on a couch or elsewhere with your back up (and with copious amounts of lube, because chafing is REAL), have your dude rub himself in between your valley of the shadow of death while you touch yourself. It’s like seeing a Broadway show in a small theatre — every seat has a good view!

Breast Friends

Katie Buckleitner

Have your guy sit on a chair and straddle him so he can give your boobs the up-close-and-personal attention they so deserve. Sitting in this position gives him the perfect access to lick or suck on your breasts, while you take control of the rhythm of night and bounce to your heart’s desire on his D. Should you have enough breast in the chest to do it, try joining him in on the action and licking yourself too.

It’s Time to Get Pegged

Reverse Doggy Style

Katie Buckleitner

If you really wanna roll with the dominatrix dynamic of pegging, this is the way to go. Have your dude get on his elbows and knees in bed with his ass up, while you take him from behind. Brace your ankles against his calves for added stability and enjoy the ride. It’s a great view and if you get off on power, this is one of the hottest positions out there.

Reverse Cowboy

Katie Buckleitner

Lie on your bed with your head propped up on a pillow (yes, you DO deserve this view, girl) while your guy straddles your legs facing away from you, propping himself up on his elbows. He can control the speed at which he takes your strap-on, and keep a hand free to play with himself.

Chairman of the Board

Katie Buckleitner

It’s all about that view baby! Sit in a chair and have your guy straddle you, controlling the depth and speed with which he gets penetrated. This is great for beginners because it puts him in the drivers’ seat, while you get primo access to jerk him off from the front and/or nuzzle him with kisses. Either or.

Oral Sex Things He Needs to Learn ASAP

All Hail the Queen

Katie Buckleitner

Sitting on your dude’s face has got to be one of the sexiest and most empowering things you can do. Of course, you’re not supposed to actually sit-sit on his whole face, but instead to straddle his head and lower yourself and adjust to whatever suits your taste. You can prop yourself up on your arms if you get tired, or work those thighs while grinding up and down his face while he moves your butt.

The Leg Up

Katie Buckleitner

Lay on the side of your bed on your back with one leg up and one leg down while your guy goes to town on you while kneeling against the bed. This position leaves you wide open and frees up your dude’s neck muscles from getting a cramp so he can keep doing that thing you like even longer.

Doggy Goes Oral

Katie Buckleitner

Get on your knees and elbows while your dude eats you out from behind. If you need some extra assistance, slip a hand down below and play with yourself, and prop yourself up on some pillows. You can grind up against your partner’s face and dip your body as you please to control the angle. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, you can also have your partner eat your ass from this position too. Hey, just a suggestion.

BJ Positions You’ll Both Love

The Mouth Off

Katie Buckleitner

Lie with your head nearly dangling off the edge of the bed and touch yourself while taking your guy in your mouth. While this is not a move for beginners, submissive folks will certainly enjoy the power play of surrendering control. Plus, that rush of blood to the head is definitely something fun.

Open Wide and Say “Ahhhh”

Katie Buckleitner

Consider this a sexier version of the classic 69. Have your dude lie on his back while you straddle him and give him an upside down beej. Stick your booty up and out so he can use your favorite toy or his fingers to bring you to completion, all while enjoying the sexy front-row view.

The Auto Blow

Katie Buckleitner

Similar to the Mouth Off, prop your head on some pillows with your guy kneeling behind you and take him into your mouth. You can use your hands to touch yourself, or keep them on his shaft to stay in control of the pacing and angle.

So, You Want to Have a Threesome

The 69, Plus One

Katie Buckleitner

It’s like a pinwheel of dick! For this position, you’ll want to all get on your sides and form a circle so you’re all giving and receiving. If you feel like not enough attention is being paid to you, you can also have the guy who’s supposed to be going down on you, use a vibrator or his fingers instead.

The Happy Cuckold

Katie Buckleitner

Sit against your main guy’s chest and dangle your legs over the butt of your third partner while he enters you. Your main guy gets a helluva view and the close contact is a huge turn on for you too.

The Double Blind Bind

Katie Buckleitner

Make sure you’ve really established all your boundaries and safe words before trying this one, because it does take a certain level of trust to pull off. For this, put on a blindfold and have one of your partners tie your knees to your wrist (gently, and with slack to rock around and still enjoy a reasonable range of motion). Have them take turns entering and going down on you and guess who’s doing what based on their touch and sounds alone. And if the idea of being tied up and blindfolded is too much, it also works if you just close your eyes.

Get Down With Yourself for Some Solo Sex

The Long Way Around

Katie Buckleitner

Trying to spice it up a bit? Try masturbating while face down and reaching your hands around the back and through your legs. If you need an extra boost, throw a pillow under your hips for added oomph.

The Slip and Slide

Katie Buckleitner

If you’re lucky enough to have unfettered access to a pool or hot tub with jets, try saddling up next to the jets so the running water hits your bits in all the right places. Just make sure you’re alone first!

Pretend Lover

Katie Buckleitner

Pop a squat on a suction cup dildo affixed to the surface of your choice and go to down. Even if you don’t orgasm from penetration, that doesn’t mean it can’t still feel AMAZING. Plus, for the normally shy, this lets you act out all your wild sex fantasies without an audience — for now.

Sex Positions for Ladies Who Like Ladies

The Breast Enhancement

Katie Buckleitner

Have your partner lean against a pillow with her legs open while you kneel in between them. Then, lean in so only your nipples are touching and rub her clit with your hand or a vibrator. Tease her by pausing from time to time to kiss her breasts or nipples.

Defying Gravity

Katie Buckleitner

You might have to test drive all the chairs in your household to find a low one that allows you to reach the ground and support yourself before diving into this one, but when you do, it’ll be worth it. Have your partner sit on said chair while you kneel with your ass in her face, straddling her. Bend so your booty is in the air and prop your hands up on the ground for extra support while she goes to town on you. The rush of blood to the head will make it all worth it.

The Strap-on Sizzle

Katie Buckleitner

If you have a strap-on and a dildo, this is a great classic take on missionary. Enter her, making sure your nipples brush up against each other with every thrust. If you’re both comfortable with it too, this is a great position to try while one of you has her arms tied up above her head too.
