An Illustrated Guide To 37 Sex Positions You Need To Try Before You Die

Just about every guy and girl in the world likes sex. Hell, if most of us could just skip the whole work thing and spend all of our time in bed every day, we would.

But with all that need to have sex comes the urge to have a bit of variety. Fortunately, there’s plenty of different configurations you and your girl can try out. To make them easier to imitate, and to jumpstart your imagination, we’ve also crafted illustrations of each and every position and given you the skinny on just what you can expect from each. Whether you’re into slow and steady, fast and furious, anal sex positions or great ways to play orally, you’ll find something here to try tonight.

Missionary

Missionary

Missionary position is the most famous and classic of all sex positions. The eye contact, the mild male dominance and the angle of penetration make this a popular one, and odds are, the first time you had sex was in a missionary position. A very comfortable position that allows for easy thrusting, and an easy pull-out if you’re a man, there’s plenty of benefits to it and it’ll work its way into basically any sexual encounter you find yourself in, at some point.

Woman Lying On Top

Woman Lying On Top

This position requires a lot of exertion on the woman’s part but could be very intense; it can also work as an anal sex position, and give her a lot of control in that scenario. It’s pretty self explanatory; you lie flat on your back hold her by the hips or butt, while she partly props herself up using her elbows and legs, arching her back and placing her shoulders and shoulderblades on your chest. Then she lowers herself up and down, to control how deeply you move in and out of her. To prevent her from getting tired, help her by supporting her butt and taking some of the weight.

69’ing

69'ing

The classic mutual pleasure oral position, 69-ing is a thrill for the head-to-toe positioning. It also works for any combination of two sex partners. You either lie on your sides, or one on top of the other (woman on top), with each of your pleasuring the other orally. An intense position, it also tests your concentration and your ability to pleasure your partner while she’s doing the same for you. Work on this one and play with various configurations so you’re most comfortable. This is how you get oral sex without feeling selfish.

Face-sitting (Oral)

Face-sitting (Oral)

Face-sitting can be very hot because it adds an extra element of dominance and submissiveness to your oral play. Have your partner lie on her back; she can prop up her head either using a pillow or leaning her shoulders against the wall. Then, thrust into her mouth. It’s a good idea to go gently here because you could make this uncomfortable otherwise. Work with her body language and cues to figure out your rhythm and how deep you can go.

For female on male, this position works even better. Though a variety of stools and special sex chairs are made just for this position, in practice you can just have her straddle your face with her thighs and lower her crotch onto your lips, with her choosing to apply the pressure the way she wants to. The warmth, pressure, taste and wetness of this position make it a truly immersive oral experience.

Doggy-Style

Doggy-Style

Doggy-style is one of the favorite sex positions of millions of people for a few reasons. It’s the classic female submissive position and really lets the man be in control, and there’s more than a few variations on it. In its simplest form, you kneel on the bed, with your girl on all fours. Enter her from behind, and hold onto her hips and/or torso. You can decide to go slow or hard. If you want to add some roughness, and your girl is into that, this position is solid for pulling on hair or spanking as well, to add to the general submissiveness of the position. If you have a free hand, a clitoral reach-around or playing with her breasts can add extra stimulation to the position.

Reach For The Sky

Reach For The Sky

Doggy-style is normally done kneeling, but it doesn’t have to be. An easy transition from normal doggy-style, in this version you actually get up on your feet and stand up, and lean way over her. You’ll get somewhat of a less intense thrust than regular doggy-style, but in return you’ll have a different sensation, particularly for her, and a pretty decent workout for your hamstring and ankles from it. The leaning forward actually lets you get a somewhat deeper feel, and the difficulty quotient will make you feel all the more accomplished for pulling it off.

Woman On Table Sex

Woman On Table Sex

For truly intense thrusting and sex that involves a lot of power, having your feet firmly planted on the ground is a great way to go. Have your girlfriend lie flat on the table (this also works with any roughly waist-high platform) and have her butt pushed right up to the edge, or even overhanging a tiny bit. Then enter her and you’ll see how much power and stability you have from being in a standing position.
As for her legs, there are a few options; you can have her wrap them around you, you could have them hanging down or up against your shoulders, you could even have her lie on her side as well for a differing angle of penetration.

Doggy-style Oral

Doggy-style Oral

Unlike 69-ing or face-sitting, this doggy-style oral sex position is (crazy bending ability aside) just for performing on women. Have her get down on all fours, either propping herself up on her knees and hands or knees and elbows. You then either get down on all fours and pleasure her orally from behind, or have her on all fours next to the edge of the bed so that you can either stand or kneel on the ground to make it easier on your back. This position is also great for analingus, if you so desire.

Girl On Top

Girl On Top

Probably the second position you’ll have learned after “missionary,” there’s more than a few reasons why girl on top is arguably the favorite sex position in the world. You get to lie back and get a simply wonderful view of your girl moving up and down; she gets excellent clitoral stimulation and a lot of control of depth and penetration. This is arguably the quickest way for a girl to get an orgasm, although quite a bit more difficult for you in that position. Use your free hands to massage her breasts, and if you want to add an element of dominance despite your position on the bottom, you can place your fingers gently around her neck.

We also hate to mention it, but you should also bear in mind that if you bounce her too vigorously, there is a chance you’ll slip out, and she’ll bounce back down on your manhood, and you’ll deal with something called “penile fracture.” So bear this in mind.

Crouching Reverse Cowgirl

Crouching Reverse Cowgirl

The reverse cowgirl is usually done in something of a vertical T-position, with the man lying flat on his back and the woman bouncing up and down mostly upright. You can add a variation to this by having her lean forward, so that her head is actually almost over top of your feet. By planting her arms onto the ground/bed or even grabbing your shins, she can really get a lot of leverage to move herself back and forth. This one really leaves her in control and lets you sit back and chill out, which all things considered.

Reverse Cowgirl

Reverse Cowgirl

A classic, the reverse cowgirl puts the man on the bottom and has the woman straddling him facing away. She can control the angle of penetration here, and the man gets a great view of her from behind. If you want to change things up, arch your knees up to give her something to easily push off of. If you want to make eye contact and get a view of her from the front, a mirror could also be your friend here, although the “no eye contact” is one of the perks of this as well.

Legs On Shoulders

Legs On Shoulders

A classic take on missionary, this one can either be done with you lying down on top of her, or with her positioned at the edge of the bed and with you in standing (or more accurately leaning in) with her legs on your shoulders as you penetrate her. This position gives the man all of the control of penetration, but it will also allow you to penetrate more deeply, so it’s f a win-win. You may need to grasp her legs and pull in gently to prevent your thrusting from pushing her away from you.

Standing Sex

Standing Sex

Bro, do you even lift (your girlfriend up to have sex with her?) Grab her thighs and then have her wrap her legs around you while hanging off your shoulders with her arms. Make sure you’re strong enough to pull this one off, and then penetrate her. You’ll probably have to live her up higher and then slower her very slowly onto your penis.

We’d add a pretty big note of caution here: make sure you have a very firm grip and take this slowly and safely, as there is the potential for injury here if you drop your girlfriend — for both of you.

The Frog

The Frog

Another spin on missionary, the frog looks to sacrifice elevation and power for proper positioning. Start in regular missionary, and then flatten your torso as much possible, while your girl should arch her legs and put her legs on your butt. What you’re doing here is targeting the clitoris for more direct rubbing and friction. The pressure you put on her clitoris could help her get to orgasm quicker. You should also be staying nice and deep within her in this position so that your shaft is rubbing up against her clitoris, not the tip. In other words, this position is more for her pleasure than yours.

Pile Driver

Pile Driver

Those yoga lessons she’s been taking? Those could come in handy now, although this one is no walk in the park for the man either. It’s an intense position by any stretch of the imagination, and one you’re not likely to be able to sustain for long.
To get into this one, have her lie on her back, then lift her legs up slowly from her thighs until her torso is coming off the floor. Slowly raise her butt up so that it’s almost above her head, and then straddle her, using up and down motion to enter her. you’re going to have to lean forward somewhat in order to position your c*ck at the right angle, which is going to take a bit of bending regardless.

Sex In A Hot Tub

Sex In A Hot Tub

Is there a specific sex position for the hot tub? Probably not, but it’s a natural place for sex; you’re already in close contact with people wearing very little other clothing anyway. In addition to the jets of a hot tub being a wonderful masturbatory aid for women to get her started (you can also fondle her nipples and lend a hand as well), there are benches all around for the man to sit on. Remember, finish quickly though: you don’t want to be in there for more than 20 minutes.
