The “best” sex positions are those that allow both you and your partner to experience the greatest pleasure and come to an orgasm. Seems obvious, right? But it’s amazing how many otherwise intelligent people totally miss this point.

A large majority (60-70% depending on which poll you read) of women don’t orgasm during sex. Does your choice of sex position make a difference? Probably more than you know.

With this in mind let’s take the top three sex positions and look at how they can bring a woman greater pleasure.

If you read men’s magazines the favorite positions in polls (including for women) is doggy style, while in women’s magazines both men and women’s favorite position is cowgirl.

I’m going to put the position that puts women in charge of what goes on first… since ladies should be in the driver’s seat for this one.

Woman on Top Sex Position

She’s the one with the greatest range of motion possible, so the woman sets the pace, finding a rhythm that works for both.

Feeling naughty? She can use her own fingers to stimulate herself.

caress her buttocks

Add a little more by caressing her buttocks, or stroking her back door.

Some women don’t like to be “on top” because they’re uncomfortable with their appearance. So, turn the lights down. Wear a bed shirt. Or, try something a little kinky

Doggy Style Sex Position

What man doesn’t love this position? It’s easy as pie and he gets to watch his dick going in and out, which is at the top of his list for “Things I’d like to do today.”

For many women it’s a favorite position because it can be great for G-spot stimulation, and for fantasizing. For many women, however, the depth of penetration means he men can actually hit the cervix. Some women enjoy that, but many find it painful.

The key to successful doggy style intercourse again is communication. Just as the head of a man’s penis is the most sensitive, the first third of a woman’s vagina is the most sensitive and the G-spot isn’t down deep at the back, it’s on the front wall about a third of the way down (though it varies woman to woman) so you need to communicate with your lover to find the right thrust that works for her.

Also, the G-spot often needs a lot of stimulation before it “wakes up” so you need to either go down on a woman first orally and make sure she’s either had an orgasm already, or is pretty darn close, or you need to reach your hand around and give her plenty of clitoral stimulation at the same time to make sure she’s enjoying things the way you are.

The problem man and women have with doggy style is that it feels very impersonal. To make her feel more connected try a couple variations on the theme such as rear entry while you’re both on your knees, or standing, in front of a mirror so that there’s plenty of eye contact and you both get the visual stimulation of seeing exactly what’s going on.

Missionary Sex Position

Yes, the old standard is still a favorite for many couples because it’s one of the most intimate, but again this position only works for both parties with good communication.

The CAT or coital alignment technique is a way to make sure you’re lined up to give her clitoris the stimulation it needs to get its groove on. To get into position the man slides forward from his normal resting place so that the woman’s clitoris is receiving stimulation from the base of the man’s penis, with his legs resting outside of hers  instead of inside. Then rather than using a thrusting motion like you’d normally engage in the woman initiate a more gentle rocking motion, making sure her clitoris is getting the stimulation it needs. The man should push down gently counter resisting the woman’s upward motion.

Men if you find that it’s difficult to keep your erection while bringing a woman to orgasm first, then try bringing her close to an orgasm with your hand or orally first before beginning intercourse.
