The Best Sex Positions for Orgasm

Everyone is different, especially when it comes to the best sex position for orgasm. Some positions lend themselves best to people who love deep penetration, others to those who really get off on intimacy or others still where it is all about the view!

Luckily, there are literally endless positions to try (depending on your flexibility and sense of adventure!) so nobody need ever go unsatisfied. In our experience, the best sex positions are often the most versatile ones which are easily adapted to hit all the right spots so we have tried to include different variations of our favorites in this go-to guide.

This guide will talk you through each of the positions (most of which you probably already know) and give you some expert tips on how to take them to new orgasmic levels!

We’ve also got an article about positions to make her squirt which is worth checking out.

Cowgirl

The perfect position for some bedroom “Yee Haws!”

Cowgirl, as the name suggests, is a position where the woman rides on top of the man like he’s a noble stallion. It allows the woman to control the rhythm and speed to exactly her liking and also to control how deeply she is penetrated.

Some women like to bounce up and down while others like to keep the penis deep inside them and grind back and forth. This can be a great way to stimulate the clit and achieve a multi-layered vaginal and clitoral orgasm.

Cowgirl is also a great position for the man to provide extra stimulation to his partner. He can play with her breasts, reach around to spank, hold or finger her ass, and stimulate her clit with his thumb or a vibrator.

Cowgirl also provides an intimate sexual experience as it is a classic face-to-face position which is perfect for kissing, choking, and anything else that gets the engines revving!

Cowgirl can also be both a vaginal or an anal position which is ideal if the lady loves a little backdoor action. Anal cowgirl also leaves the pussy open and available for fingers or a sex toy for some serious double penetration fun.

When it comes time for the man to climax, cowgirl isn’t the easiest position to transition out of quickly for a facial or body shot but it is the ideal position for creampie lovers. Once the man has shot his load, the woman can slowly rise off him, lean back and let him watch as the cum drips out of her holes.

Reverse Cowgirl

The ultimate view for ass lovers everywhere!

Reverse cowgirl is an amazing variation on the classic position which requires the woman to mount her partner’s cock while facing away from him. This provides her with the same depth, rhythm, and speed control as classic cowgirl but gives him an incredible view of her ass.

While she is riding her steed, the reverse cowgirl gives the woman free rein to rub or toy her clit, stimulate her nipples, or play with her man’s balls. For women who love some anal play, reverse cowgirl also allows her man to easily finger or toy her ass while she rides him, or it can even be an anal penetration position itself.

One of the unique aspects of reverse cowgirl is that by leaning forward, the lady on top can bend the man’s penis down to a whole new angle. This can be a little strange for the man at first but it does allow for the woman to grind her clit on his balls which can feel incredible for both partners.

Reverse cowgirl is also a great position for dishing out a well-deserved dose of spanking if the woman enjoys it and her man wants to spur her on. He can also grab her hair from behind and pull her back into a more reclined angle where he can play with her tits, kiss her neck, and rub her clit to climax.

Upright Reverse Cowgirl

A lapdance where touching is very much allowed!

Also known as The Seesaw or Lapdance Position, upright reverse cowgirl involves the man kneeling down and his partner sitting on him in the reverse cowgirl position. This gives easier access to her clit and breasts and can be an incredibly intimate position.

This position enables the man to support his partner better than the standard reverse cowgirl which leaves her hands free to play with her breasts or use a toy or her fingers on her clit. While the woman is grinding on his cock, the man can also kiss her neck, fondle her breasts, and whisper naughty things into her ear to drive her to the point of explosion.

Upright reverse cowgirl is also a great position to transition into doggy as things heat up. The woman just needs to lean forward and put her hands down to support herself with all her holes ready and waiting behind her.

It is a tailor-made position for squirting because the woman can keep her man’s penis deep inside, stimulating her g-spot while she’s simultaneously rubbing her clit. When it comes time to squirt, all she needs to do is raise herself off his cock and let it all go!

Sideways Saddle

A new angle on a classic ride!

The side saddle was previously the way fine ladies would ride their horses to preserve their dignity and also to preserve their maidenhood. It was seen as a symbol of chastity and virtue which is just one reason this position is so naughty!

Also known as Seated Scissors Thigh Tide, this position has the woman mounting her man’s cock at a sideways angle with her feet planted and riding him to her heart’s content. It allows her to control the depth, rhythm, and speed of sex but also enables her to rub her clit on his thigh to supercharge her climax and build up a glorious squirt!

Sideways saddle can allow for vaginal penetration but is also a great anal penetration position leaving the pussy free for a toy or fingers. Balance is crucial for a sideways saddle so it can help if the man supports his partner by holding onto her legs and placing one hand behind her so she can lean her weight back and focus on the fine work she is doing.

Like other cowgirl positions, the woman can grind or bounce on the man’s cock or even allow him to set the pace by bouncing his hips up and down with her on top. She can keep one hand on his chest for support and use her other for clitoral stimulation, to play with her breasts and nipples, or to explore her man’s balls or ass.

Missionary

Tried, tested, and hard to beat!

There are few more sex positions more famous than missionary, yet for some unknown reason, it gets a bad rep. Part of the reason for this may be that missionary is so rarely shown in porn but that is because it’s not a great position for any close-up penetration shots. This has led to some people viewing missionary as a little vanilla but no sex position becomes this famous for nothing!

First and foremost, missionary is one of the single most intimate positions in your sexual arsenal. Missionary allows you to look deeply into your partner’s eyes, make out, kiss and bite each other’s necks and ears, whisper sweet nothings, and talk absolute filth to each other.

Missionary is also a great energy-conserving position because it allows the woman to lay back and enjoy themselves and only really requires the man to thrust his hips. Sometimes, this is the best way to reach an orgasm when you can just focus on the sensations, find the perfect speed and rhythm, and connect with your partner.

Missionary is also the ideal position for the woman to stimulate her man’s anus. She can just reach around while he is pounding away and play with his perineum, finger him, or use a toy to stimulate his backdoor areas.

When the man is ready to orgasm, missionary is great for a deep creampie which can often be the trigger for his partner’s orgasm. Alternatively, he can pull out and cum on her body, breasts or face, or in her mouth for a real pornstar experience.

The C.A.T. (Coital Alignment Position)

A new twist on everyone’s favorite position!

Missionary is a wonderfully versatile position because, with just a slight adjustment of angles, it can bring on entirely new orgasmic sensations. One of the single best missionary variations of the Coital Alignment Position, often referred to as the C.A.T.

To get into the C.A.T., the man slides slightly further up his partner’s body from a standard missionary position. This changes the angle of penetration so the top of his shaft provides heightened clit stimulation and gives him more leverage for thrusting. It also brings the man and woman closer together for an even more intimate sexual experience.

The man can either rest on his forearms, allow his weight to put pressure on his partner, or hold himself up to really give himself space for pounding. Like standard missionary, C.A.T. is ideal for the woman to play with her man’s ass and spur him on to an explosive climax.

For deeper penetration, the woman can also wrap her legs tightly around her man’s backside or lower back with both partners rocking back and forth together. This can allow for perfect orgasmic timing with the man holding out until he feels her convulsions, she grabs his ass tightly and they cum together.

Legs Together Missionary

A tighter squeeze for a more intense climax!

Legs together missionary provides all of the intimacy of standard missionary with a fun twist!

Also known as the Pinner, and the Locked and Loaded position, this playful missionary variation is perfect for both men and women who prefer a “tighter fit.” In standard missionary, the woman opens her legs and the man gets in between them but, as its name suggests, legs together missionary requires the woman to squeeze her thighs together with her man’s cock inside her and his legs on the outside.

This position creates extra tightness which can help both partners orgasm, particularly if the man is a little smaller or his partner a little bigger. Legs together missionary is all about making every inch count and the added friction can be a real game changer when it comes to climax time.

One really exciting way to cum in legs together missionary is for the woman to leave her panties on. All the man needs to do is pull them slightly to the side for access to her pussy. He can then creampie inside her or cum directly into her panties themselves.

For extra naughtiness, the woman can then leave her panties on for the rest of the day, whether that’s just in the house or out for dinner. With both partners knowing that her panties and pussy are still full of cum can be a massive turn-on and really dial up the anticipation for a fuckfest later.

Legs Up

A playful position with seriously deep penetration!

The legs up position is another easy transition from missionary which offers the ultimate in deep penetration and hard-pounding potential. There are different variations of the position with the woman putting her feet on the man’s chest, her legs completely over his shoulders, or, if she is flexible enough, even her legs behind her own head.

This position provides a myriad of pleasure benefits. First of all, it allows for far deeper penetration than a standard missionary so the woman’s G-spot can receive serious stimulation. It also allows for both vaginal and easy anal penetration so that all the woman’s holes can be fully satisfied.

Legs up can also provide a lot of clitoral stimulation as the man’s upper pelvis rubs back on forth while his cock stimulates deep inside, hitting the G-spot simultaneously. For many women, this dual-pronged stimulation is the best way to climax making legs up a certified go-to position for guaranteed orgasms.

There is also something so animalistically sexy about hoisting your legs up on your partner’s shoulders and letting him pound away. It is a very submissive position for the woman and a very dominant position for the man and can also be great for switching it up if the man is into pegging or assuming the “bottom” role.

Spoons

An intimate position where your hands are free to wander!

Spoons is another classic position that combines close-up intimacy with the potential for multi-pleasure point stimulation. To get into spoons, the woman lies down on one side with her weight supported on one forearm. Her partner then lies down close up behind her and enters her from behind.

One of the great things about the spoons position is that you can mix up rhythms easily. The man can thrust away from behind or grab his partner’s hips and rock her up and down on his cock, or the woman can take charge and wiggle her backside until her man is fit to burst inside her. Spoons is a fantastic vaginal and anal position and leaves the man’s hands completely free to play with the woman’s breasts, rub her clit, choke her, and anything else which brings her to climax.

Spoons also leaves one of the woman’s hands free to play with herself or her man. She can finger or vibe her clit, dildo her pussy if they are doing anal spooning, or rub her partner’s balls with her free hand.

Finally, spoons keeps the man close up behind his partner at all times for neck kissing, ear nibbling, dirty talking, and finger sucking. It is like the from-behind version of missionary that every couple adds to their sexual repertoire.

Doggy Style

The ultimate power position!

From the intimate to the downright dirty, doggy style is the ultimate in hard-pounding, no-holds-barred pleasure. Doggy style is one of the most famous positions of them all, giving the man full control over his partner who gives up her pleasure to his every whim.

To get into doggy, the woman goes down on all fours making her pussy and ass available to her partner. The man then kneels down behind and slides his cock into the hole of her choice. From there, doggy style is as versatile as it gets, but the basic move is for the man to pound in and out of the woman while spanking her ass, pulling her hair, or reaching around to finger her clit.

Doggy style allows the man to switch up rhythm, speed, and intensity to pleasure himself and his partner. It can be rough, sensual, or a delicious mixture of both. When he gets tired, the woman can rock her backside back and forth, sliding his cock in and out of her until he is ready to go again or until he cums inside her or all over her ass.

The angle of penetration can be easily adjusted in doggy style by how high the woman rests on her arms. For the deepest penetration, she can bury her face in a pillow, leaving her pussy and ass riding high, and lose herself in the sensations.

If the woman likes to be dominated, the man can grab her hair from behind like a set of reins or push her face into her pillow. From this position, she can reach back to finger or toy her clit or pussy and allow herself to be completely overrun with sensations until she explodes.

Laying-Down Doggy

Perfect for a lazy hump!

Also known as the Prone Bone position, laying-down doggy is a variant of the classic position where the woman lies down on her front rather than being up on all fours. The man then gets on top of her with his legs on the outside of hers and enters her from behind either her thighs parted or squeezed tightly together.

This position may seem like a lazy version of classic doggy but it has a number of benefits over its more famous cousin. First of all, it is less intensive which means both partners can save their strength for lovemaking rather than using their energy to prop themselves up. Second, it is easier for the man to reach his partner’s breasts, pull her hair, choke her, or push her face down into the pillow.

Laying-down doggy is a great position for vaginal sex, anal sex, and DP with a toy in either hole. With the woman’s thighs squeezed together, it helps to tighten everything up downstairs for more intense sensations and is the perfect position to finish when you are both spent from more vigorous fucking.

The man can perch himself a little, hold his partner’s hips and thrust from there, or lay his weight down on top of her for an intense, intimate ride. When it is time to cum, this position lends itself perfectly for a juicy creampie, a thick load all over the back or ass, or even a facial with the man quickly standing up and cumming on his partner’s face as she looks seductively up at him.

For the woman, laying-down doggy enables her to grind her clit on the bed or a pillow and to really push back against the man to get him deeper inside. When she is ready to explode, he can pull her hair back from behind, wrap his hand around her throat, and feel her juices squirting out behind her.
