New sex positions – without a flop

It can be nerve wracking, even with a trusted, long-term partner, when you’d like to try a new sex position. We can feel a bit embarrassed, perhaps about sex generally, and don’t really want ourselves or our partner to make a mistake. There’s also the risk that, if we suggest a new position to try, this might be taken as criticism of him or her by our partner. Rest assured, such challenges as these can be overcome.

Advanced woman-on-top sex positions

For the woman who likes to take the lead in love, woman-on-top moves are ideal – the more advanced sex positions do not always allow her as much control, but they do allow for penetration in new ways.

The missionary position

Even though it has a reputation for being ‘unimaginative’, the missionary position has a lot going for it. Many women particularly enjoy the basic missionary position, with the man on top and the woman underneath, because it allows a lot of intimacy.

Sex positions: spooning

Many women love ‘spooning’ because of the intimacy it offers. Both of you lie on your left or right sides, whichever is more comfortable for both of you.

Doggy style sex

Generally speaking, men tend to enjoy positions that give them a good view or deep penetration. ‘Doggy style’ satisfies both criteria.

The missionary position with raised legs

If you’re into deep penetration, try missionary position sex – with a twist.

Sex positions: Easy Rider

The woman lies on top of the man, facing her partner and straddling him. Once he’s penetrated her, she leans back on to her arms.

Sex postitions: Coital Alignment Technique (CAT)

Possibly one of the most effective variations on the missionary position is the Coital Alignment technique, or CAT position. This stimulates the G-spot and clitoris and is thought to assist mutual orgasm.
