If you want to enjoy longer-lasting sex and better orgasms, then the Spinner Sex Position is definitely something you should try.

Most people equate ‘in-and-out’ thrusting with good sex, but staying inside and spinning actually results in a much more pleasurable experience.

Some of the benefits of the this position include:

In this guide, I’ll explain everything you need to know to get the most out of this unbeatable sex position. Follow along, and you’ll learn how to rotate and grind your way to orgasm like never before.

Over the years, I’ve coached hundreds of men and women on how to have better sex and I’ve also interviewed dozens of porn stars and sexologists to gain unique insights into how to maximize enjoyment in bed.

I’ll be sharing two of my most orgasmic tips at the end of this guide, so make sure you stick around.

What is the Spinner Sex Position?

Describing a petite woman as a ‘spinner’ is a way of infering that she’s small and light enough to be spun around an erect penis. While this is quite a derogatory term, it neatly sums up the basic mechanics of the SSP; the woman rotates on a guy’s cock.

It’s essentially a woman-on-top position where the woman moves between facing her partner (as in Cowgirl position) to facing away (as in Reverse Cowgirl), or any angle in between, either under her own steam or with her partners’ assistance.

The spinning doesn’t need to be anything crazy, but it’s a marked shift from the typical ‘in-and-out’ thrusting that most couples are used to during sex. Making love without thrusting may seem unusual, but as it turns out, rotating during sex has some pretty spectacular benefits…

Top reasons to try this Position

If you are used to thrusting during coitus, then this position may take a little getting used to. But the benefits are nothing short of spectacular.

For him

The SSP lacks the ‘in-out’ friction of regular sex. This helps you last much longer in bed, and means that your partner is more likely to be satisfied. The head and shaft of your penis actually gets more friction and pressure during ‘spinning sex’, making the experience uniquely satisfying.

For her

Staying on top and rotating or twisting helps build pleasure, because it gives you way more clitoral stimulation. Whereas thrusting interrupts pleasure, spinning lets you experiment until you find the best angle. The sex also lasts longer, meaning you’re more likely to reach orgasm, especially if you use your favorite vibrator.

How to do this awesome position

The SSP isn’t hard to pull off, here’s the gist of it.

Technique: He lies on his back with his feet shoulder-width apart and one leg slightly bent at the knee. She stands to one side of her lover’s body and crouches down onto his shaft in the ‘Straddle’ position (shown above). He puts one hand on her neck and the other on her knee. She places one hand on his knee and the other on his chest, then starts to move and grind onto his shaft until she finds the perfect angle.

When she’s ready, she can spin around into the ‘Overturned’ position (shown above) where she is facing away from her partner. She can either keep her feet up or drop down onto her knees with one foot either side of her partner’s legs. From this position, she can either spin back into the ‘Straddle’ position, or spin the other way into the ‘Alley’ position facing her man, as shown below:

This position is lots of fun; the woman can either be passively spun around by the guy, or can take a more active roll and choose the direction and speed of the rotations. The possibilities are endless!

Tips for making it orgasmic

The SSP is infinitely versatile depending on your athletic prowess and sexual preferences. At one extreme, you can rotate gradually between one position and the next. At the other extreme, the woman can remain passive and let the guy literally spin her around his cock. Basically, the spinning can be as fast or as leisurely as you like.

Here are some tips for making this position even more orgasmic.

Resist the urge to thrust

You don’t need any thrusting motion to make this position fun, but that’s what most couples are used to and old habits can die hard. My best tip for rocking this position is to set a 5-minutes timer on your phone and try to last that long without thrusting. This gives you a chance to experiment with the rotating movement and find ways to make the position feel incredible.

Keep your hips still

The stroking ‘in-and-out’ hip motion that most people do when they have sex isn’t necessary whilst in the position. The goal is for the woman to move her entire body without the guy using his hips to pump.

Most guys that I interviewed for this article agreed that holding onto the bed or bed posts is the best way to minimize body and hip movement while their partner spun on their cock. This makes the penis stimulate the clit in circular motions (which just so happens to be most clit’s favorite motions).

Try Pre-vibing

Most women that I spoke to have said that the SSP feels amazing when they use their vibrators just as they get really close to coming. The best tip I can give you girls is to use your favorite vibrator to get to the point of orgasm and then, just before you cum, start to grind and spin on your partner until you climax. This will keep constant stimulation between your clit and top of your partner’s penis.

Try Tilting

Having spoken to hundreds of women, including sexologists and porn stars, I’ve noticed that almost all women are especially sensitive along one particular side of their vagina. When the head or shaft of the penis (or a toy) hits this area, sparks fly. That’s why one of the most orgasmic, yet lesser-known, tips I recommend you try is called ‘Tilting’. It basically lets you hone in on the most sensitive, exciting spot on your vagina.

Tilting is easy: simply have your guy slip a small cushion or pillow under one side of his butt. This sets his dick at different angles and helps enhance pleasure on one side of the vagina more than the other as you rotate.

Final thoughts

As you’ve seen, the Spinner Sex Position is nothing if not versatile. It’s honestly one of the most exciting positions that you should add to your repertoire and will definitely help you have longer-lasting sex, and enjoy stronger, more powerful orgasms!
