4 Sexual Positions for Beginners

Sex can be the most natural thing in the world but engaging still requires you to learn a thing or two to reach optimal pleasure. In this article, you will learn four simple positions to try with your partner for mind-blowing orgasms!

1. Missionary Position

How to do it: Lie on your back with your legs apart, knees up, and feet planted. Your partner then penetrates you as they lay on top of you – either fully stretched out or on their knees.

Why You Should: This is one of the classic positions.. Whether you are a beginner or expert, this position remains one of the most predictable yet pleasurable positions for many. Some may call it boring but this position provides so much pleasure because of the physical closeness, eye-to-eye gazes, kisses, and nipple play.

There are many variations to the missionary position. You can begin with the classic missionary – face-to-face position. Then elevate your pelvis by putting a pillow underneath your waistline; this would change the angle of the penis when it penetrates to hit the G-Spot. You can move your hips, grab your partner’s hips, and widen your knees to allow for deeper penetration. If you want extremely deep penetration, you can raise your legs up and hold them with your arms or rest them on the shoulders of your partners as they kneel.

2. Woman On Top aka CowGirl!

How to do it: Have your partner lie flat, then you sit on top and straddle.

Why You Should: This position gives women the ability to control depth, speed, and pace. For deeper thrusts, you can lean forward as you straddle, using your partner’s chest or bed as support. This leaning-in also allows your partner the perfect opportunity to kiss your neck and fondle your breasts. You can also straddle in different motions; side-to-side, up and down, or circular motion.

3. Spoon sex position also known as Side Way sex position

How to do it: You both lie down on your sides facing the same direction. Your partner lifts your knees up slightly and penetrates from behind.

Why You Should: The sideways position also known as spooning allows for more skin-to-skin contact that increases stimulation. In this position, your partner can amp it up by rubbing your clitoris, fondling your breasts, kissing your neck, and grabbing your hips. You can also control how deep or shallow the thrusts are by widening or tightening your legs. This position also reduces the chances of a man losing his erection, hence making it worth trying for people with partners who suffer from premature ejaculation.

4. Doggy Style

How to do it: Bend over and spread your legs apart so your partner can penetrate you from behind.

Why You Should: Doggy style is certainly a favorite for many people. The position allows for deeper penetration which stimulates the G-Spot. You can boost your arousal by having your partner stimulate your breast or clitoris as they thrust. Additionally, you can also try a side-to-side thrust motion instead of the in-and-out motion – you might just be surprised at how good it feels.


There’s no right or wrong way to have sex. Keep experimenting with your partner to find out what feels good for both of you.

Extra tips: Including sex toys and some sex lubricant to your sexual encounter can enhance even more pleasure.
