At the end of the day, sex is just like any other sport or performing art:
The final result is only worth the energy and practice you put into it.
Sex can be downright tantalizing, or a total snooze-fest — and a lot of it has to do with the amount of effort that you and the woman you’re with put into it.
Different sex positions can be a fun, low-risk way to spice up your sex life… connect better with your partner… and otherwise enjoy sex a whole lot more.
Not to mention that by trying new sex positions, you’ll gain a level of sexual confidence and mastery. You’ll feel far more competent in the bedroom, which will drive the woman you’re with wild with lust (trust me ;-)).
So if you’re ready to switch things up a little, and spice up your sex life… the brand-new sex positions below can mean the difference between boring, mediocre sex, and absolutely mindblowing, drench the sheets, wake-the neighbors sex.
(I don’t know about you, but I’ll take the latter — and as much of it as I can get, please!)
Sex should be something you and your partner continually learn from and improve, in order to keep it fresh, exciting, and enjoyable.
So whether you’re new to having sex…
Looking for more advanced, experimental, or plain different sex positions…
Or looking for different sex positions to drive her wild…
You’ve come to the right place.
In this article, I’m going to walk you through the best different sex positions for:
- Beginners looking to master basic sex moves…
- Experienced people looking to experiment or learn some new tricks…
- Those interested in finding moves that drive her wild & take her over the edge…
And much more. I’ll show you the 5 best moves for each category, go through what makes them so hot, and explain how to try them out.
But before we begin, you might be wondering:
“How do I know if I’m a beginner or more advanced?”
And ultimately, I can’t answer that — only you can honestly answer that question for yourself.
Be honest: are you really adventurous in bed?
Or do you just want to try something new?
Maybe you’re looking for some help penetrating the woman you’re with deeper…
If you aren’t sure, my recommendation is to skim through the “Beginner” positions and move on to the following sections once you feel familiar with those.
While these moves might not work perfectly for everyone, there are variations you can try out and angle adjustment recommendations that will help you perfect each position.
Let’s begin with the 5 best different sex positions for beginners:
The 5 Best Beginner Sex Positions
Let’s start with the basics. If you’re new to sex, experimenting is something you should look forward to.
But in the meantime, it’s important to get comfortable with sex in some basic (yet amazing) positions that will help you gain confidence & sexual mastery in bed.
(Speaking of sexual mastery, did you know that only 6% of guys know how to take charge the way women want? Here’s why… and how to do it.)
While basic, yes, these positions are also sex staples. Every sexually active guy should be able to impress a woman with these fundamental moves.
However, there is one thing to keep in mind:
Make sure you pay attention to your partner’s responses to your moves — especially when you’re first having sex with her.
This is the key to determining what she likes and doesn’t like. And ultimately, it will make for better sex for you both.
The Missionary position gets a really bad rap. A lot of women say it’s boring…
And too simple…
Which is pretty unfair, considering how popular it is.
While yes, Missionary can be boring (let’s face it, any position can be boring if you aren’t trying), it’s a staple sex position for a reason.
- It’s comfortable and simple, so you won’t get nervous when you’re doing it…
- It allows you to truly connect with the woman you’re with. You can lock eyes with her and really explore what she likes…
- Finally, it offers a deeper sense of intimacy…
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
So to pull it off, have your girl lie down flat on her back with her legs spread apart.
Kneel over her body (almost like you’re doing a push-up).
You can have her legs spread around yours, or vice versa — do whatever feels most comfortable for you.
(In a recent poll, 22.5% of women revealed that missionary was one of their favorite go-to’s)
2) Standing Missionary
This slight variation on the traditional position feels a little naughtier but is actually just as easy to do.
Simply have the woman you’re with lay down toward the bottom of the bed, so her butt is just above the edge.
Stand in front of the bed (leaving a few inches between you and the mattress), and hold her legs or have her wrap them around you.
To be honest, this position is even simpler to achieve than standard Missionary for many people, because you don’t have to worry about holding up your own body weight.
If you find there are height differences making it difficult for you to enter her easily — try raising her up by placing a pillow under her hips.
3) Sitting Girl on Top
“Girl on Top” is a great position for your lady to show you what she likes. However, it can be a little intimidating if you’ve never tried it before.
To make things a little bit easier, try this modified position where both of you are sitting down.
To begin, sit on the couch or bed and have her climb on top of you, slowly lowering herself down onto your shaft.
Let her then rock up and down or in a circular motion until you both climax.
What makes this position so great is that it allows the two of you to experience the closeness and intimacy you get with Missionary… while also letting you both sit back, relax, and focus on your pleasure.
Pro Tip: Pay attention to what makes her moan, and keep it in mind for next time.
Bonus Pro Tip: If you wanna go even deeper inside her (but aren’t that big “down there”)… then these 3 “Deep Penetration Positions for Guys With Small Penises” should help a lot (don’t worry–I won’t tell anyone)!
4) Modified Doggy Style
Many people — both men and women — enjoy doing the deed Doggy Style. A recent survey reveals that doggy style is the #1 preferred position.
But if you’re new to sex, this position can seem a little intense.
Plus, until you get enough practice in, it’s important to wait on this one to avoid hurting your partner.
So to modify this position, have her lay on her stomach with a pillow or two underneath. This helps raise her butt up without changing the nuts and bolts of it too much.
It also gives you a better angle to enter her from behind without getting too rough.
Go slowly at first to make sure the angle is good for both of you — you can also add or remove pillows from underneath her as needed.
Sex therapist Moushumi Ghose adds, “This position is great—from slow, deep thrusting and quick, shallow thrusts. Start slow, and then go faster. Alternate between deep and shallow. In this variation, there is more skin-to-skin contact, and breasts, nipples, clitoris, and anus are all within easy reach. One partner can nibble the other’s ears, kiss their neck, or breathe dirty-sweet phrases down their back.”
Modified Doggy Style is a great way to experiment with sex in a “safe” way, so you can try traditional Doggy Style later on down the road.
5) Modified Girl on Top
If you’re aching to try Girl on Top but the woman you’re with seems hesitant, try compromising with this position instead.
It’s different from the Sitting Girl on Top I mentioned above because there’s no sitting involved here — she’s laying on top of you instead.
However, what separates it from traditional Girl on Top is that she’s leaning over you, using her hands to lift her own body weight.
You can even think of it as a slightly reversed Missionary position. Plus, you can help her out by thrusting from beneath her.
And once you’ve mastered these moves, you can switch them up a bit to prevent them from becoming too repetitive.
Try changing the location you’re having sex in, or you could try slightly tweaking the positioning as well.
Never underestimate the power of raising her up to a different angle or slightly modifying a position. 🙂
Have you already mastered the basics…?
Or maybe you’re just looking for more of a challenge in bed…?
Perhaps you and your girlfriend are wanting to experiment, but you don’t know exactly where to start.
These 5 positions will be great stepping stones into your experimentation with sex. Plus, many of them can be performed with props or bondage techniques to really kick it up a notch.
6) Doggy Style
If you’ve never tried this beloved position before or if you’re looking to get more experimental, Doggy Style is the perfect place to start.
It’s a great introduction to rougher sex and can be intensely pleasurable for both you and the woman you’re with.
To perfect this position, have her kneel down on the bed, then lower her upper body so she’s on her hands and knees.
Kneel or lay down behind her and enter her from behind.
Also, keep in mind that you will probably have to play with the angle after you enter her.
For example, a 90-degree (perpendicular) angle of entry might not feel amazing for her…
But using pillows or having her lower her head down could help bend her body so that you’re entering from an angle she loves.
If you’ve already mastered this position or you’re looking to kick things up a notch, then Doggy Style is also a great way to start experimenting with anal sex.
Start with toys first, and tweak the angle until both of you are comfortable enough to go for it.
For an added little bit of kink, try riding her while pulling her hair or tying her down.
(As a woman, I can tell you that most of us want you to be really rough with us in bed… here are 3 ways to do it I promise she’ll love.)
7) Spread Eagle
If you’re really looking to spice up your sex life, there’s nothing better than a move that requires some minor bondage.
The Spread Eagle is an incredible position for anyone interested in dabbling with BDSM or just looking for some extra fun in bed.
To perfect this position, have her lie down on her back. Next, have her lift her legs and arms up in the air.
If you’d like, you can make it so that her legs and arms touch.
And to be even kinkier, you can tie her legs and her arms together. Make sure the knot is tight, but not too tight to cut off her circulation.
Finally, enter her from above (similar to Missionary).
This puts you in complete control of the situation, which is ideal if you’re looking to play with Dominant/Submissive roles.
Even if you aren’t into BDSM, this position can be extremely thrilling, so long as there is complete trust between you and your partner.
This is also a great position if you’re not “huge” down there and wanna penetrate her really deep… so that she gets that “fullness” feeling she craves (click here to find out how to go deeper inside of her more often!)
8) Reverse Cowgirl
Giddy up, cowboy!
Put her in the driver’s seat with this incredible position.
This variation of Girl on Top offers her more control over the situation, while also allowing you to relax more. Plus, you get a great view while you’re doing it.
Lie flat on your back or at an angle and have her straddle you so that she’s facing your feet. She can then use her thighs to swivel and bounce up and down.

To make it a little more intense and to give her some more leverage, bend your knees so she can use them to help lift her body up and down.
And if you want to take this position even further, have her tie you down so you’re unable to do anything except lay back and enjoy the ride.
9) Inclined Doggy Style
Wanna experiment with some angles? This position is perfect for you.
It’s one of the most inventive modifications to traditional Doggy Style and might be just what you need to spice up your sex life.
You’ll need stairs to make this happen, and it’s also a great position for both vaginal and anal sex — I’ll let you decide.
To pull it off, have the woman you’re with kneel on a stair and let her lean forward with her upper body so that she’s resting on the steps above her legs.
Then you do the same, except your upper body will rest on hers as you enter her from behind.
It’s one of the best ways to figure out what angles drive both of you wild and can be the perfect “gateway drug” to start experimenting with sex in strange places.
10) Wet and Wild
You don’t have to incorporate brand-new moves into the bedroom to experiment — instead, try changing your environment.
Shower sex can be a lot of fun (as long as you’re careful), so if you’re looking to switch up your sex routine, just add water.
To be successful at shower sex, make sure you have an awesome silicone-based lube for her and something sturdy for you to hold on to.
You can try a standing Doggy Style position where she bends over, or you could also try standing face to face while you penetrate her (bend her leg for support).
Experimenting with sex is a fun part of any healthy relationship, so don’t let the positions do all the work for you.
Try incorporating dirty talk…
Or other props that you both agree will really help push things to the next super-sexy level.
The 5 Best Positions for MAXIMUM Pleasure
While sex is usually a lot of fun for most of us ladies…
It can still be really difficult to actually have an orgasm during the deed (even if what you’re doing feels really, really good).
However, while orgasming during sex can be a real challenge for most women — it’s definitely not impossible.
(Like did you know her orgasm is 80% more likely if you can do this to her? It’s so freaking easy too.)
One of the easiest ways for a woman to orgasm through intercourse is by placing her in the driver’s seat. This way, she can stimulate her body the way she wants.
Of course, there are also ways for you to control her movements while also blowing her mind.
So if you want to do everything you can to give her the sexual pleasure she craves, try adding one (or more) of these sex positions to your arsenal.
11) The Fusion
This position is a little more complicated to pull off, but it’s so worth the effort.
It offers better movement control for her while providing you with the best view in the house. 😉
To perfect this position, sit on the bed with your legs spread. Then lean back and prop yourself up using the palms of your hands.
From there, have her sit facing you between your legs, and prop her legs up on your shoulders. She’ll also be leaning back slightly and supporting her weight with her palms.
This position allows her to move up and down or in circles, providing faster and more intense orgasms for both of you.
It also allows you to go deeper inside her… filling her up even if you’re not that big (here are 3 other great positions that help if you aren’t that big “down there”).
12) The Waterfall
This position doesn’t take place in the shower — instead, it’s named after the way it looks.
Not only does it provide better control over movements for her, but it also ensures you have one of the best orgasms of your life.
Try it out by laying flat on your back (toward the foot of the bed).
Slowly slide your head and back off of the bed so that your head and shoulders are on the floor.
At this point, your body will be arched in a kind of waterfall shape. Next, have her sit on top of you — from there, she can press her heels against the edge of the bed and grind up and down, moving her hips in circles.
The real secret to this trick is that the blood in your body is going to rush to your head, making your orgasm much more intense than you ever thought possible.
It’s also fantastic for her because she can tease you while building up to her own orgasm.
13) Lowered Reverse Cowgirl
Try out this tweaked version of Reverse Cowgirl…
Similar to Reverse Cowgirl, this move keeps the woman in control of all movements.
What makes it different here is that her body will be in a better position to actually navigate her movements more precisely — this increases her chances of reaching orgasm significantly.
To pull off this position, get into the standard Reverse Cowgirl position.
From there, have her lower herself down to your legs or feet, and she can use the palms of her hands and her knees to help support her body.
This will offer her better control over her movements, allowing her to hit all the right spots… including her elusive “A-Spot” deep inside her (most women don’t even know about this)…
14) Pinball Wizard
Did you grow up on arcade games? Pinball, perhaps?
Well, consider this the “adult” version of pinball.
This position gives you control of the situation and also makes it easier to bring the woman you’re with to orgasm.
What’s better, it can also be done as rough (or “vanilla”) as you want and can be modified in a few different ways.
To perfect this position, kneel down on the bed and have her lay in front of you.
Lift her legs up and grip her thighs to help thrust in and out.
You can modify this slightly by having her lace her ankles around your neck or over your shoulders.
This steamy position not only feels naughtier than most… but it’s also a great way to give her an easy orgasm (the odds of a woman having an orgasm are increased anytime her legs are in the air because it helps you go deeper inside of her).
15) Magic Mountain
The “Magic Mountain” doesn’t just sound like a fun ride at an amusement park… it also feels amazing.
It makes it equally easy for both you and the woman you’re with to control your movements — and on top of that, it makes it way easier for her to finish during sex.
Put a stack of pillows on the floor. Have the woman you’re with lean over the pillows and “relax” into them.
Her back should naturally arch.
You want to lay on her back so that your chest is “glued” to her. Your arms should be on top of hers.
Then enter her from behind, just like doggie style.
You can now safely go “all-out” with your thrusts, since she has plenty of padding.
But it also gives her an increased sense of connection and skin-to-skin contact.
The best part about this move is that there’s a shared sense of sexual control.
At the end of the day, sex should be fun for both you and the woman you’re with… and these positions should certainly help you get there.
But, Don’t Forget THE #1 Most Important Thing…
So now that I’ve blown your world open with:
-Easy sex positions you might have forgotten about…
-Much-needed updates on your go-to sex positions…
-And mind-blowing new sex positions to try…
Let me offer one more valuable piece of advice.
Boys, if you want to get her to climax (again and again and again), a new and exciting sex position can be a great way to get there.
But there’s something else you should know.
We all appreciate the variety. Slowly some of the time, and like a jackhammer at other times…
Upside down, right side up, her on top, you on top, regular cowgirl, reverse cowgirl, from bed to floor to the shower onto the front lawn into the neighbor’s hot tub…
Variety is the spice of life, and trying out new sex positions is a great way to get her interested in having sex with you again and again.
Whether you’re impressing a new lady or you’ve been together forever, these new sex positions are bound to keep her coming back for more.
But there’s one importing word there, gentlemen: coming.
After all, that’s the goal. Don’t leave your girl out in the cold.
But how can you ensure you get her to orgasm?
Variety is great. Your expertise in fun new sex positions will impress her and capture her attention. You’ll be the subject of all of her fantasies.
But, you’ve also got to make sure you get her there.
It’s far too easy for guys to get really into mixing it up, switching it up, jackhammering away, and going super fast.
If you want to make sure she finishes, boys, you’ve got to pay close attention.
Take careful note of which new sex position she’s really enjoying.
She’ll let you know: moaning, closing her eyes, clutching you, telling you not to stop.
While all of these new sex positions will be pleasurable for both of you, some of them will get her there more than others.
Every woman is different, so it’s up to you to figure out which new sex positions do the job.
Do that by paying attention to her body language.
Keep doing what you’re doing.
Don’t change right away, unless you’re purposely holding her right on the edge of orgasm and not letting her climax (you naughty man, you).
Once you find something that’s really working for her, stick with it. Be patient. Make small adjustments while you pay attention to what she really likes.
She’ll be coming like a fountain in no time, and that means she’ll be coming back to you again and again.
Which is perfect, right? Because you’ve got even more new sex positions to try. (You’re welcome!)
NOW… I’ve gotta confess — there is one more thing you can do to make sure you’re the best she’s ever had.
(If you’ve been paying attention so far… you might already be able to guess it :-):
It’s honestly my favorite thing a guy can do during sex… here’s how it works:
How to Go MUCH Deeper Inside Her… (& Hit Her Elusive “A-Spot”)
A lot of women know how to come from touching their clitorises…
And some even can guide a guy to hit their “G-Spot” consistently…
It’s got its own weird name… and it’s often why women prefer guys with “bigger” penises…
Each one is scientifically-designed to increase your odds of hitting her “secret spot” during sex… even if you’re only “average” (or especially if you’re “below average”) downstairs.
Plus there’s also a great free bonus that’ll help you hit this secret spot on-command, whenever you want–check it out here:
