The most effective sex positions to maximise her pleasure while giving you a tough full-body workout in the process.

1
The Sports Massage
MUSCLES WORKED: Forearms, wrist flexors. GYM EQUIVALENT: Wrist curl. WHY? She’ll need to trust you on this one. And you really need to trust us. HOW? Start in a traditional reverse-cowgirl position: her on top, facing your feet. Then, bend your knees so she can lean forward and rest her chest on them. This gives you access to her perineum (the area between her vagina and anus) which you can stroke gently with two wet fingers, enhancing her pleasure – and your grip strength. MUTUAL BENEFIT: Maximum stimulation.

2
The USB
MUSCLES WORKED: Core, hamstrings. GYM EQUIVALENT: Prison squat. WHY? Get a faster connection to her vaginal nerves, for instant results. HOW? It’s harder to plug in, but better for everyone: she kneels on all fours while you stand behind her with your buttocks pressed against hers. Now lean forward until you can slide into her. Your reward for being bent slightly out of shape is a visual download that’s straight off a porn site, while getting direct access to her G-spot.

3
The Easy Rider
MUSCLES WORKED: Core, quads. GYM EQUIVALENT: Bosu ball squat. WHY? This position gives you a more intense way to mount her. HOW? Start in good ol’ man-on-top missionary. Then, she closes her legs while you inch your body towards the headboard. Now put your legs on the outside of hers, segueing into straddling her, while she keeps her legs tightly closed. Unconventional, yes. But this angle is guaranteed to hit her clitoris, and the suspension will be tighter than ever.

4
The Upward Dog
MUSCLES WORKED: Glutes, hip flexors, abs. GYM EQUIVALENT: Leg lift. WHY? It’s like yoga, but much more fun – receive the enlightenment of extra stimulation. HOW? Start in “doggie” position, then drop your hips back until you’re kneeling with your bum on the backs of your heels. She should be sitting on your lap with her feet making contact with your balls. Go ahead and rock happily to orgasm.

5
The Duct Tape
MUSCLES WORKED: Triceps, abs. GYM EQUIVALENT: Weighted dip. WHY? The move is so called because it’s the most secure way she can possibly “grip” you. HOW? She lies back and raises her legs, one crossed over the other. Kneel down in front of her and slide inside. Lean back, supporting your weight on your hands, elbows bent. Rock in and out, but only very slightly to start with.

6
The Jelly Fish
MUSCLES WORKED: Biceps, hip flexors GYM EQUIVALENT: Seated row. WHY? This will give you extreme depth and satisfying “closeness”. HOW? You kneel and she crouches on top. With arms around each other, work up a pulsing motion, moving apart and together in unison. This angle allows for surprising depth of penetration. By “closeness”, we mean her boobs will rub your chest.

7
The Sushi Chef
MUSCLES WORKED: Shoulders, abdominals GYM EQUIVALENT: Pike crunch. WHY? Fold, hold and roll for precision satisfaction. HOW? She lies on her back with her bum right on the edge of the bed. Standing on the floor in front of her, place her ankles on your shoulders and slide inside. Then, gently push her ankles towards her ears. When she’s reached her bend limit, drop both her knees to the left or the right to change the spots you’re stimulating.

8
The Crunch Master
MUSCLES WORKED: Biceps, forearms, abdominals. GYM EQUIVALENT: Crunch. WHY? It’s a core workout – for you and her.
HOW? Stand facing her and let her jump up and hook her legs around your waist for penetration. Slide your hands underneath her bum and ask her to lean back at a 90-degree angle, before rising back up to kiss you. She repeats this movement, testing out the whole variety of penetrative angles, while you support her. Find your best angle and finish the session in that position.

9
The Farmer’s Hold
MUSCLES WORKED: Triceps, lats, lower back. GYM EQUIVALENT: Dead lift. WHY? Take the strain and both of you will benefit. HOW? Stand with your back against the wall. Ask her to climb onto you and support her back while she “kneels” against the wall. Tip her backwards so she can place her hands on the floor. She’ll enjoy the high of the blood rushing to her head, you can enjoy a strong-man power trip. MAXIMUM MUSCLE: Arms & back.

10
The Control Pad
MUSCLES WORKED: Glutes, hamstrings, forearms. GYM EQUIVALENT: Stability ball leg-curl. WHY? This makes good use of the coordination skills you’ve honed through years of gaming. HOW? Lie on your side behind her and pull her hips against your groin. Slip her top leg over your hip, drawing it slightly back and begin to thrust. Now comes the dexterity. Combine stroking her clitoris, massaging her breasts and kissing her neck for multiplier bonus points. Pinch her nipples to reach the high-score board. MUTUAL BENEFIT: Total access.

11
The WWW
MUSCLES WORKED: Quads, hamstrings, core. GYM EQUIVALENT: Back squat. WHY? Get unrivalled friction for a broadband orgasm. HOW? She sits on the edge of the bed with her legs pointing vertically at the ceiling, holding her ankles. Stand on the floor in front of her and place your hands behind her head to support her and stop her from rolling backwards. Now make the connection.

12
The Toblerone
MUSCLES WORKED: Hamstrings, quads, glutes. GYM EQUIVALENT: Isometric lunge. WHY? Relax and let her do the work. HOW? Lie back with one leg bent. Ask her to straddle you sideways, with her back turned slightly towards your face. She holds your knee, then lowers herself onto you. MAXIMUM MUSCLE: Legs & glutes.

13
The Shock Absorber
MUSCLES WORKED: Abs, hip flexors. GYM EQUIVALENT: Leg raise WHY? If the ride to her G-spot has been bumpy, this position will help. HOW? She lies back with her knees pulled to her chest. You kneel in front of her, so that her feet are resting on your chest, and slide inside. Tilt forward, hold onto her hips and bounce away.

14
The Spider Woman
MUSCLES WORKED: Lower legs, glutes. GYM EQUIPMENT: Calf raise. WHY? For a fit that’s snugger than spandex – for any shape of man. HOW? She stands facing a wall and lifts one leg to rest against it. Her arms should be up against the wall for support too, in the fashion of a ’70s Spider-Man. You approach her from the side and squeeze in. Use your hand on her clitoris to ensure that the other kind of “wall-climbing” ensues.

15
The GPS
MUSCLES WORKED: Core, glutes. GYM EQUIVALENT: Kettlebell swing. WHY? It makes locating the G-spot blissfully straightforward. HOW? Whether you need directions or not, it is worth finding it. Place her on a counter and stand facing her with your arms around her lower back. With her hands resting on your shoulders, she raises her legs and props them on your shoulders, too. Talking in an amusing accent discouraged.

16
The Circuit Board
MUSCLES WORKED: Core, shoulders. GYM EQUIVALENT: Barbell roll-out. WHY There are various points of contact, which means she will experience orgasmic sensations in her entire pelvic region. HOW? Start in missionary position, then shift your body up so that the base of your penis presses firmly against her clitoris. She now presses her pelvis up and wraps her legs around your calves, squeezing them together until she finds the spark.

17
The Y-Wing
MUSCLES WORKED: Core, hamstrings. GYM EQUIVALENT: Bridge. WHY? Your legs will truly feel the force. HOW? Lie at the edge of the bed, legs spread in a Y-shape. She lies on top with her back against your chest, then slides onto you. As she gradually sits up, move her back and forth with your hands. Keep your legs up so she can stroke your balls. Do not quote Star Wars. MAXIMUM MUSCLE: Core & abs.
