Different sex positions have different effects. While you could have sex in the same way every time, you’re more likely to find what really hits the spot if you experiment a little.

These positions are all easy to do and have their own perks, just be sure to use enough lube to make them comfortable for you.

Raised Missionary

Missionary position is when the woman lies on her back and the man lies on top of her, resting his weight on his arms. Raised missionary adds one simple twist: the woman puts a pillow under her bum. This changes the angle of entry, making it easier for him to hit the G-spot. It will also make a man feel bigger – so best avoided if you find deep sex uncomfortable, but ideal if you want to make the most of a man.

The man gets a great view, and has easy access to stroke her body all over.

Doggy Style

Often topping surveys as men’s favourite sexual positions, the woman kneels on all fours and the man kneels behind her. Some women find doggy a bit impersonal. If so, putting a mirror in front of her so she can look in your eyes can help it feel more intimate. Doggy offers deep penetration and G-spot stimulation. It’s also easy for the man to stroke the woman’s breasts and kiss her neck; and for the woman to touch herself or use a toy during sex too.


The perfect first time position, Cowgirl is another name for sex with the man on his back and woman on top, straddling him. This lets her set the pace, and also means she can lean forwards to get easy clitoral stimulation. The man gets a great view, and has easy access to stroke her body all over.


Although spooning is known as one of the ‘cuddliest’ sex positions, it can still be very intense. The man and woman both lay on their side with the woman in front, facing away. Entering from behind, it gives the opportunity for both of you to control the pace and depth of thrusting. This position also allows you to work with your hands, playing with her nipples or adding extra stimulation to her clitoris.

Try these sex positions and find out what works best for both you and your partner. Everyone likes different things so experimenting and having a play around will give you the opportunity to find out what really hits the spot.
