Face to Face Sex
The rocking horse
This requires a
fair amount of strength in your legs and thighs.
The man takes up a squatting position, probably on a bed or a firm surface like
the floor, and his partner then sits on him.
She helps to support her weight with her feet and legs, but the main sensation
in this position comes from her ability to rock backwards and forwards while her
partner's penis is inside her.
It's also interesting to try a variation where the man rocks back and forth
while his partner remains still, moving with him only as he moves.
When you take up
position for sex, the male partner sits as shown in the illustration with
his upper body supported on his hands.
He can keep his legs straight or bend them, depending on what is most suitable
and pleasurable. His partner sits on him as shown, bending his erect penis
forwards so that it enters her.
This means that men with a very upright erection may not be able to enjoy this
position as their penises will not bend forward enough.
Assuming that the couple can get into this position, she can control all the
movement, the rhythm and the speed of thrusting, since she has purchase with her
arms to allow her to thrust from her pelvis.
One great advantage is that the couple can enjoy looking at each other during
sex, though of course they can't really touch or kiss.
The Goddess embrace
on the edge of a chair or bed, the woman allows her partner to penetrate
her while he kneels.
Clearly, the position depends on the couple
getting the height right, so you may have to adjust the height of the
woman's bottom before it is easy for the man to enter her.
He also may need some cushions under his
knees for comfort.
Once inside her, he can embrace her tightly
as she clasps her legs around his back. By holding her close, he can get
deep into her, and he has control of the speed and rhythm of sex.
Climbing the hill
only recommend this position for very flexible or adventurous lovers!
The male partner lies as shown, with a firm
erection, which he holds for his partner as she guides herself down on top of
She must sit slowly and gently so as not to bend his
penis, though if she can get onto him, she has control of the movement.
He basically lies there while his partner rides up
and down him, using her legs to move up and down. The man gets extra stimulation
by watching his partner's breasts and his penis moving in and out of his
The spider's web
This is an
exciting position - if the man's back is flexible enough for him to get into it!
It also helps if he has a long penis, though this is not essential if the couple
raise her bottom with a pillow so that her vagina is at the right height for him
to enter her.
The easiest way to get into this position is for her to shuffle towards her man
as he sits waiting for her.
If he leans forward and holds her shoulders, he will be able to gain enough
purchase to thrust slightly, though movement is limited. He is basically
entering her from below and pushing up, since her bottom and pelvis are slightly
higher than his.
enjoy this position you need to be on a hard surface - a bed will rock too
much and you may not be able to stay upright.
The man sits as shown, holding his legs behind
the knees so that he forms a stable base for his partner to sit on.
She makes herself comfortable, resting some of
her weight on him and some on her legs, taking his penis inside her vagina as
she lowers herself onto him.
In this position, either he or she can move, but
it's a good idea to decide who is going to rock or thrust before you start,
since if you both try and move out of synch, things can get a bit confusing.
Obviously the man has easy access to his
partner's breasts, which he can kiss and caress as the couple make love.
The X factor
start in the chair position shown above, this time on a soft surface like a
bed, then have the man hold the woman's wrists as she lowers herself down onto
the bed between his legs.
Look carefully at the picture so you get the angle
of your legs correct, otherwise the position won't work!
The idea is that the man can pull his partner
towards him in a rocking motion, though to do this he must be fairly strong
and she must trust his ability to hold her.
It's a great exercise in trust, and fun to play
with, though you may find it is tiring and you are better returning to the
chair position above.
You can perhaps use a variation where you hold
each other around the back to support each other in a sitting position (see
another form of this sitting position below).
This is a
very erotic and exciting position which allows the man to penetrate his
partner slowly and deeply.
He sits down, with his erection ready to receive his partner, who then
sits on him, perhaps teasing him by playing with his penis, using it to
stimulate her clitoris before she lets him into her body.
As she plays with him like this, he may get more and more aroused, until
the sexual tension is so great that he simply wishes to posses her
The longer the build-up, and the more erotic the foreplay, the more
powerful and exciting the man's orgasm will be when he finally lets go and
explodes into her!
male partner relaxes with his back well supported so that he can form a
comfortable place for his partner to sit between his knees, which are raised
slightly off the bed.
His feet must have some purchase, so that they don't
slide down the bed when his partner sits on him - the whole idea is that his
body forms a couch for her to relax into. He can penetrate her easily, and the
more she raises her legs, the deeper he will be able to enter her.
Note the position of her thighs and his head, and
the couple's hands, both of whom have clear access to her clitoris, making it
possible that she will reach orgasm during intercourse.
This is a great position for men who ejaculate
quickly, as the erotic connection will keep him erect even if you rest still
very so often. That will help him to control his arousal and slow down his
progress towards orgasm.
well-known position, but one which a man may find is more suited to fantasy
It takes considerable strength and skill to support your partner like this
while you penetrate her, and if you drop her you run a severe risk of damaging
Only recommended for strong couples with a great deal of stamina, and
perhaps also where the woman is of slight build.
Once you're in this position, you can thrust powerfully or gently, helped
by your partner if she wraps her legs around your waist.
The forward bend
is is a position which occupies a lot of time in most men's minds! Many men
are highly aroused by women's bottoms, so the prospect of making love in this
position can be extremely exciting.
Of course, sex in a standing position like this
can be fast and furious, which may add to the excitement, and it allows a man
to express his most fundamental sexual urges: this position may even be the
most powerful expression of male sexuality!
Men love penetrating a woman from behind, and
seeing their penis moving in and out of her body as they do so. Since this
also allows deep thrusting and lets a man control the movements during sex,
it's not hard to see why it's such a favorite!
For a woman, the excitement can come from
knowing she is arousing her man to such an extent, or from the sheer
lustfulness of the sex, which can be liberating for a woman if she has
inhibitions or is slightly shy.
This can be a very exciting position for
spontaneous sex, especially if the woman teases the man beforehand, perhaps by
no wearing any underwear, so he can throw her skirt over her back and take her
Again, a position which is
ideal for strong couples, or those where the woman is slight of build.
The man must be careful as he lifts the
woman and guides her onto his erect penis, for if she slips while his
erection is inside her, there is a risk of a snapped penis.
This is both painful and can lead to Peyronie's
disease. Nonetheless, if the man is strong enough to comfortably support his
partner, this can be an exciting position because it is so unusual.
The man's ability to thrust is limited, but he can gain movement if his
partner's bottom is resting on, say, a table or some other suitable object.
Alternatively, he can grasp his partner's buttocks as he moves her back and
forth on his penis.
On Top Sex Positions
another famous position. It's one which occupies a favorite place in the
fantasy lives of many men, one which allows a man to adopt a rather more
submissive attitude in sex.
If you like to take a more relaxed position as your partner rides you from
time to time, then this is ideal for you.
There's no challenge in getting into the position as long as the woman
holds her partner's penis as she inserts it into her vagina, and there's
nothing difficult about it - the excitement lies in the fact that it's a
perfect way to reverse roles, to give the woman the opportunity to control the
speed, rhythm, and pace of sex, and to allow the man to relax as he enjoys the
attention of his partner.
Head to head
many men like the missionary position more than any other, it's worth
trying this variation, which can provide a whole new range of different
The woman takes more control of sex when she is on top, and again, as with
the reverse cowgirl, the man can relax and "let it all happen" as he
savors the site of his partner moving on top of him.
Again, this is not a
technically difficult position, but it is a highly enjoyable one, since the
couple can kiss and caress, the man can touch his partner's breasts, and she can
move in whatever way gives them both most pleasure.
Like all positions where the woman has the dominant role, this one enables her
to move in the way that best stimulates her clitoris and G spot.
In our view, this
is a more exciting version of the Reverse Cowgirl shown above, in that the
partners can look at each other as they make love.
The woman has
greater flexibility of movement - she can move forwards or backwards to
find the angle of her body that gives them both most pleasure.
Top Sex Positions
This is a powerful
position, in the sense that the man can penetrate his partner deeply and she can
enjoy the sense of exposure which comes from opening her legs and exposing her
vulva to his gaze as he enters her.
After penetration, he can then lean forward so that his whole body presses
on her chest, perhaps giving her a sense of containment and pressure which she
may find exciting.
Certainly, if he can position himself correctly, his body will press on her
clitoris, and she may be able to enjoy a powerful orgasm.
position which can offer new and perhaps rather unusual sensations.
The woman lies on her back, with her legs apart, and the man penetrates her
while facing in the opposite direction.
She then puts her legs on his back, and he can support himself on his
Thrusting is not easy, so the man can try instead making circular movements of
his pelvis, or he can grip his penis in his hand and move it around to
stimulate his partner while it is in her vagina.
Another exciting thing is that the man and woman cannot see each other, which
adds a whole new dimension to sex, and she can surprise him with unexpected
caresses of his testicles, legs or back.
Deepest of all
connection between the two partners is a prerequisite for this incredibly
The woman is completely exposed to her partner's gaze, which he may well find
erotic. Her position hints at complete abandonment, deep penetration - simply
wild sex in fact!
For many men, nothing is more exciting than such deep penetration, for the
sensations around the head of the penis can be profound, and the erotic appeal
of the man's testicles banging on his partner's vulva is considerable.
Although this might be the stuff of fantasy, it's a very difficult position to
get into and it's very difficult for the woman to move at all. If you want to
try it, put a cushion under the woman's hips. It may help if she is able to
put her hands over her head so she can push herself upwards onto his penis.
But once again, unless he has a penis which bends down when it's erect, it may
be difficult, if not impossible, for him to insert into her vagina in this
The side screw
advantage of this position is the tightness which it lends to the woman's
This can add greatly to the pleasure of both lovers, and since the man can
move his partner's legs in any direction he chooses, it is possible for him to
control the sensations which both he and she experience.
The man can also allow his passion to take control of him as he thrusts
vigorously into his partner. She can play with her clitoris, thereby ensuring
that she comes while they are making love.
Rear-entry sex positions (sex from behind)
Rear entry or doggy style
truly passionate and exciting position, perhaps the most exciting position of
all for many men.
But it's also very exciting for women, since it allows both sexes to express
their sexual passion. The woman kneels with her head down or her head up as
she chooses, and the man kneels behind her on all fours and enters her while
gripping her around the hips or waist.
He can thrust hard or soft, and she can also thrust with energy and passion. A
set of pillows or cushions under her stomach will support her and may make it
more comfortable for her. An exciting position for both sexes.
are woman who never comes during intercourse, try this position. It has the
effect of stimulating the clitoris as your man thrusts.
The best way to do this is to lie on the side of the bed on your side with your
legs bent double.
This has the effect of exposing your vulva and tightening your vagina, which
will make the position appealing and pleasurable for your man. As he thrusts
into you, his movements pull on your vaginal lips, which stretches the tissues
around the clitoris: this tension may help to make you come.
Your man can also caress your breasts and increase your pleasure with a little

woman holds her legs bent while she keeps them close together. This means
they will grip the man's penis as he enters her.
This is a good position for anal sex, so he
may be entering either her vagina or her anus. She can turn as he enters
so that she can see his face, and this allows the couple to exchange
loving gazes as they make love, though probably not to kiss.
If you want to move, the best movements are
likely to be gentle ones, though the penetration will be deep. You can
mould your bodies together, and the position of the woman's legs may allow
for stimulation of her clitoris as her man moves, which brings her to
orgasm during intercourse.
with both of you lying down. The woman should lie with her back to her
partner, and as you can see in the illustration, she will then bend a leg
back over the man's thigh or hip.
The man can then penetrate his partner as he
holds her leg up in the air. It's an exciting position which offers many
different sensations from normal sex, and the proximity of the woman's
