Side-by-side lovemaking positions

For couples who prize intimacy and close contact when they make love, side-by-side sex positions give maximum opportunity for cuddling, caressing and kissing.


Best positions for deep penetration

Few couples use positions for deep penetration every time they make love. Occasionally, however, a couple may wish to experiment with positions that offer especially deep penetration and a whole wealth of new sensations.


Enhancing missionary position sex

Man-on-top lovemaking 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 positions: the guide

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


Woman on top positions

These positions put the control with the woman. The man lies on his back while the woman rides him. She can then set the speed and depth of penetration. Pin his arms to the bed for extra power!

The missionary position

Even though it has a reputation for being 'unimaginative', missionary position sex has a lot going for it - most of all: intimacy.



Over the edge

Add spice to the missionary position by the woman dangling her legs over the edge of the bed - or it could be a sofa, kitchen table, office desk, or whatever else takes your fancy!

The head rush

For an unusual angle of penetration - stretching his penis and targeting her G-spot - and a rush of blood to the head, try... the 'head rush'!

Missionary sex plus: the leg wrap

The 'leg wrap' is a great variation on classic missionary position lovemaking. Penetration is deep, the vagina will be tighter, and the clitoral stimulation is great.

Coital Alignment Technique (CAT)

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

Yee-hah! Reverse cowgirl

The 'reverse cowgirl' sex position gives 'bum men' a visual treat. It takes a bit of practice to make sure you get the angle right - but it's worth it!

Raised missionary position

If you're into deep penetration, try the missionary sex position - with a twist.

Doggy style sex

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