11 Positions You Should Definitely Try For Maximum Penetration During Sex
In the emotional sense, staring into each other’s eyes and synchronizing your breath for deep, passionate sex can be mind-blowing. But what if you’re looking to literally go deep?
As long as your partner is on board, that can be hot, too.
Here are the 11 most penetrating sex positions for when you’re both in the mood for something intense.
How to Do It: She lies facedown with her hips slightly elevated (try sticking a pillow underneath them) and her legs straight, spread out slightly.
Why It Works: The lifted hips offer a low barrier to entry, says New York City sex therapist, Ian Kerner, Ph.D., author of She Comes First.
Perks: This one gives her great G-spot stimulation, says Kerner.
How to Do It :While you sit down, she sits in your lap, facing you.
Why It Works: Because her legs are spread wider here, she’s more open to receiving all you have to offer, Kerner says.
Perks: From here, she’s able to control the pace and just how deep she wants you to go.
How to Do It: Like cowgirl, she’s on top pushing off of you as you lie back. The twist here is that you assist with your hands. By holding her hips or thighs, you’ll support her weight and rise to meet her thrusts.
Why It Works: This gives her some great G-spot stimulation, and she can go as deep as she likes depending on her thrusts, says Kerner.
Perks: Great view, and she gets the chance to dominate, he says.
How to Do It: She’s on top as you lie back. She pushes off of your chest and slides against your thighs.
Why It Works: From here, says Kerner, she can open her legs wider for a deeper entrance.
Perks: This move gives G-spot and clitoral stimulation, which means she’s twice as likely to get off, he says.
How to Do It: Lay on top of her, face to face, as she lies on her back.
Why It Works: It’s a classic for a reason—this one gives you both deep stimulation, combined with intimacy, Kerner says.
Perks: There’s lots of eye contact and face time for making out, says Kerner.
How to Do It: Kneel directly behind her as she’s on her hands and knees.
Why It Works: The angle of this position gives deep penetration and G-spot stimulation, says Kerner.
Perks: Your hands are free to stimulate her clitoris or engage in a little nipple action, he says.
How to Do It: You’re seated. She backs into your lap, facing away from you.
Why It Works: Since this probably isn’t your go-to position, it’ll feel like a whole new world, says Kerner. That newness will make the penetration feel deeper than it actually is.
Perks: Your hands are free
How to Do It: Lie side-by-side in the spooning position, and enter her from behind.
Why It Works: You have more leverage and support so you can wedge yourself in a way that creates maximum depth, says Kerner.
Perks: There’s plenty of G-spot stimulation for her this position, he says. Plus, it’s perfect for when you’re both tired but still in the mood.
How to Do It: Lie on your back with legs raised up and out. Get your ankles as far back toward your head as you can. Then, he enters in a missionary position.
Why It Works: The legs are spread wide, lending more depth, says Kerner.
Perks: He’s riding high, so that will give you some clitoral stimulation—or you’re free from here to take that into your own hands, he says.
How to Do It: She lies back in the plow position, ankles on either side of her head. You squat and dip your penis in and out of her.
Why It Works: This one is all about the newness, says Kerner. In this strange, new position, every sensation feels amplified.
Perks: All the blood will start rushing to her head, adding to the fresh sensations, he says.
How to Do It: He sits cross-legged, then you sit on his lap, facing him. Next, wrap your legs around his back, pull each other closer, and rock back and forth.
Why It Works: This position is all about opening yourself up—especially your legs and hips, he says.
Perks: Here, you can get deep in more ways than one: Lock eyes with your partner as you climax for added intimacy, says Kerner.
