Sex positions with sex toys: heating it up for him

Sex positions with sex toys

According to research, most people only have sex in three different positions: missionary, woman on top and doggie. While mixing up sex positions and trying something new can be great, there is a reason people tend to stick to the positions they know: because they know they work. If you want to get the best of both worlds, and if you want to enhance the positions with which you’re most comfortable, you can try something new with the cunning addition of sex toys. By using sex toys to enhance your usual sex positions, you have the advantage of familiarity with added new sensations and, with any luck, more intense orgasms for both of you.

Sex positions to enhance female orgasm


I’m fairly sure I have a big enough penis – well, it’s seven and a bit inches from where I like to measure it, and it feels pretty girthy to me – but I don’t seem to be able to make my girlfriends have an orgasm when we’re having sex. I’ve tried the loads of the foreplay thing, tried some sex positions, and I’ve tried giving them an orgasm first, etc, etc. I want to cum together when we’re having sex. Is there some position I could use to make this happen?

Using toys to enhance sex positions for her


Generally speaking, men find it much easier to climax during sex than women do. While it’s all well and good to go with the ‘ladies first’ approach, that isn’t always feasible in a long term relationship. Sometimes, you want the comfort of sex and mutual orgasm without having to spend hours on foreplay beforehand; and sometimes you want hot, fast sex without having to think about anything other than the passion of the moment. This is where a sex toy or two can come in handy.

Man-on-top sex positions: enhancing the missionary position

Sex position: man-on-top

Man-on-top sex positions aren’t always passive for the woman. With many variations on the ‘missionary’ position, the woman can control the depth of penetration and set the pace for intercourse.

Rear-entry sex positions


Of all the rear-entry sex positions, the ‘doggy’ position is almost certainly the best known. But with imagination, the loving couple can find others that are even more stimulating.

Side-by-side sex positions
