Here are some of the best sex positions for better stimulation:

Doggy Style

Doggy style is renowned for maximizing pleasure for both partners, allowing men to penetrate deeply and hit that all-important G spot. This position feels fantastic and, top tip, the more you arch your back, the deep the penetration will be!


Cowgirl is a sex position loved by millions as it unleashes a level of pleasure, giving the person on the top maximum control of their orgasm. As the name suggests, this position involves your partner lying on their back whilst you straddle and ride them.

Sofa Brace

Things always get steamy on the sofa, right? And the exciting, highly satisfying Sofa Brace is perfect for spontaneous, highly pleasurable sex. Get on your knees and bend yourself over the back of the sofa, whilst your partner penetrates you doggy style. The thrill of this position will take your session to new heights.

Unique sex positions

And the good news is, these unique sex positions are super easy to replicate – you don’t need to be super flexible or put in any more effort than you normally would!


Similar to cowgirl, this position involves leaning back with your arms and using them to support your weight, rather than your knees. Once you and your partner are comfortable, move your body up and down for optimum pleasure.

Butter Churner

If you love your partner penetrating deep inside you, this should be your go-to sex position! Butter Churner involves lying flat on your back with your legs raised and folded over so that your ankles are on either side of your head. Your partner then takes the squat position and penetrates deeply, allowing you to enjoy the ultimate intimacy and pleasure.

The Pretzel

If powerful thrusts and deep penetration excite you, the Pretzel will certainly get things hot and steamy in the bedroom. This position involves your partner kneeling over you, whilst you wrap one leg around your partner’s waist and rest the over leg under their bottom.

If you want to form a deeper, more sensual connection with your partner, this is the one for you!

Sex positions while pregnant

Sex doesn’t have to stop just because you’re pregnant – nine months is a long time, after all.

And although getting intimate with your partner may seem daunting with a little human growing inside you, having sex when you are pregnant is completely safe and enjoyable too. In fact, it’s healthy and let’s face it, when the pitta patter of tiny feet arrive, you’re probably not going to have anywhere as near enough time to get busy in the bedroom.

There are lots of comfortable sex positions to enjoy whilst you’re pregnant, giving you the same level of closeness and intimacy, without any discomfort.

During your early months of being pregnant, you should spend some time getting to know the different positions that work for you and your partner.

  • Sex from behind
  • Spoon away
  • You on top
  • The Hot Seat
  • Cowgirl
  • Cross Buttocks
  • Propped Missionary
  • 69 Oral Sex
  • Doggy Style

Of course, when you reach the later stages of pregnancy, you might not feel up for getting down and dirty in the bedroom! Instead, you might prefer to focus on oral sex or pleasure your partner with your hands.

Ultimately, enhancing your sex life is all about experimenting and having the confidence to try new things and positions. So research your favorite positions, relax, and get ready for a new, sensual experience.

Remember, for the trickier, deep penetrating positions, lube can really help to enhance sexual activity and alleviate any pain or discomfort during intercourse.
