6 Sex Positions to Try for Fun and Pleasure

Many couples ponder whether there are exciting sex positions they have not tried that can add to their sexual fun. The Kama Sutra and other sex manuals have popularised the idea of various sex positions to add variety and interest to a couples’ sex life. However, many couples limit their sex life to only ever trying two or three, and part of the problem is simply knowing what the possibilities are! Of course porn films can give you some ideas, but bear in mind that what professional actors do on a screen is not necessarily that easy to achieve for an ‘amateur’ couple in their bedroom!

Nevertheless, sex is one area of your life that you definitely want to ensure has variety to keep it from going stale. Even simple variations on your favourite positions can enhance your pleasure and fun. Here are another 6 sex positions that you might not have thought of. You might like to try to see what you think!

Woman lying flat on her stomach with man on top. This is a variation of the familiar ‘doggy’ position except the woman is lying flat rather than being on her knees. the man lies on top of here, also flat although using his elbows for support. This is a wonderfully sensuous position. It allows the man to feel the entire length of the woman’s body, including being able to kiss her neck. It can also give the woman a feeling of being totally under the man’s control which for many women, in the right situation, can be erotic in its own right. This is a great position for when the two of you are not feeling particularly energetic for sex. It can be a wonderful way to make love late at night, just before sleep.

Woman sitting on man facing away. This is very visually exciting for the man as he gets a good view of the woman’s buttocks and anus. He could also tickle her anus lightly while in this position. If the woman puts the weight on her knees, the man can control the penetration with his hips, and also by holding the woman’s hips with his hands. The woman can lean slightly forward, which will put added pressure to the base of the penis and the back wall of her vagina.

Woman lying on her back, man lying on side with one of her legs between his. Again, a very visual position for the man, as he is also able to see his penis moving in and out of the woman. Man is also able to stimulate the woman’s clitoris in this position. This is something of a variation on the standard ‘missionary’ position, but is a bit more restful for the man.

Couple standing with man behind and the woman leaning forward. Make sure the woman has something firm to lean on, such as a bed or wall. this can be great for a ‘quickie’!

Woman lying on back with a cushion underneath; man kneeling in front between woman’s legs. This raises the woman’s hips, allowing the man to penetrate at a different angle to the normal ‘missionary’ position. Again, it is a very visually exciting position for the man.

Lying side by side with man behind. Sometimes called ‘spooning’ but this involves actual penetration rather than just cuddling. The woman may lean forward slightly to gain a better angle of entry.

Varying the sexual positions used in a relationship can do a lot to keep your love life exciting and fresh. Of course the traditional favourites such as missionary and doggy positions are wonderful, but experiment with these positions described above and other positions, and communicate with your partner about what each of you likes the best.
