6 Sex Positions For Beginners That Are Still Hot AF
Whether you’re new to sex, or just find yourself always resorting to the same old position every. single. time. (no judgment)—remember there’s a whole world of sex positions out there to try!
But you don’t need to have insane acrobatic abilities to mix things up (*ahem, we’re looking at you butter churner*) There are plenty of basic sex moves that will make you feel anything but boring.
How to: For this position, lie on your back while your partner lies facedown on top of you, and enters you from here.
Why it’s great: A true classic, missionary is a great go-to sex position. It’s simple, and surprisingly versatile—you can make minor changes, like shifting the angle of your legs, to mix things up a bit.
How to: Kneel on top of your partner, pushing off your their chest and sliding up and down the thighs. You can relieve some of your weight from his pelvis by leaning back and supporting yourself on his thighs.
Why it’s great: In this position, you get to take control over the speed and intensity. You can also change things up by widening your knees or bringing them closer to his body for different experiences.
How to: Switch up cowgirl with this option. Start by kneeling on top of your partner, pushing off their chest and sliding up and down the thighs. But your partner helps by supporting some of your weight and grabbing your hips or thighs while he rises to meet each thrust.
Why it’s great: This sex position puts less stress on your legs, making climaxing easier. Plus, if you’re with a guy, female-dominant sex positions delay his climax—so everyone wins. Try switching between shallow and deep thrusts, to see how it stimulates your vagina and clit differently.
How to: Both of you lie on your sides, facing the same direction. You bring your knees up slightly while your partner slides up behind your pelvis and enters you from behind.
Why it’s great: There’s simply no position better for morning sex—the simple yet effective spoon is definitely one you should have on your radar. It allows for lots of skin-to-skin contact, an amazing angle of penetration, and built in cuddling. Plus, your partner can easily reach around to give your clit some extra love.
How to: This position takes a classic (doggy style) and makes it a little more low-key. Simply lie facedown on the bed, legs straight, hips slightly raised. Have your partner enter you from this position.
Why it’s great: This sex position allows you to relax and enjoy the ride. You can also try swiveling your hips, to create a new sensation for your partner. Bonus: Your partner has easy access to your clit (yes, please!).
How to: Your partner sits on a chair or the edge of the bed; you face him, seated on his lap.
Why it’s great: This position puts you up close and intimate with your partner, which can be incredibly sexy. Plus, you get to control of the angle and depth of the entry and thrust. Not to mention, being seated helps conserve energy (can you say sex marathon?) While in this position, try exploring your partner’s body with your hands—and maybe even learn one of their under-the-radar erogenous zones while you’re at it!
