What Are Women’s Most Favorite Love Making Positions And What Positions Do They Typically Not Like?
women’s most favorite making love positions
Cox: Place a pillow underneath your butt. Instead of simply lying back as he thrusts in and out of you, sit up halfway, lift your butt, and then slowly lean backward. Repeat until one of you climaxes.
Chen: For women who find it difficult to reach orgasm in the missionary position, I recommend helping yourself along to orgasm by stimulating your clitoris while he’s on top. Just the visual alone of you touching yourself will be a feast for his eyes. During missionary your partner can leave just enough space in between your bodies so that you can slip your hand in between, reach down, and slowly stroke your own clitoral area (or C-spot) to the rhythm of his strokes, building yourself up to orgasm; with a little bit of practice it’s a great way to time reaching your orgasms together.
2.) WOMAN ON TOP
Cox: Move your body in small circles as you lift and lower your pelvis. Have him sit up, with his legs straight out in front of him. Lower yourself onto his penis and sit with your knees bent, facing him, with your feet flat on the floor.
3.) DOGGIE STYLE
Cox: Rather than kneel, lie facedown on the bed, with your legs spread. He lies on your back and penetrates you from behind. Try having him stand behind you while you gradually—and carefully!—lean forward until your hands touch the floor.
Chen: While on all fours, with your partner behind you, either instruct your partner to reach around, or guide your partner’s hand around your hips. Qith a finger or two begin gently stroking your C-spot while you’re being penetrated from behind. Done properly, slowly, and gently, you can build up to an explosive orgasm.
Cox: Grind your body against his penis, bending from the waist and moving your upper torso downward. Reach around to fondle him while he’s moving in and out of you.
5.) MANUAL STIMULATION
Chen: Grab him by the balls—he’ll be happy you did. Just like a man has pleasure receptors in his anus, these same happy sensors extend to his testicles. If you find yourself on top or on bottom and you’ve got a free hand, slowly and softly grab and rub his balls while you’re riding him. Or, if you’re on bottom, reach for his balls as he’s penetrating you during deeper strokes. Give them a gentle tug and notice his immediate pleasure receptors.
JULIA, 25, WRITER
FAVORITE POSITION: My favorite is upright, from behind—think steamy shower, bent over one leg up on the edge of the tub.
WHAT MAKES IT SO HOT: The running water and upright position make it feel urgent (in a good way), the angle is just right for me, and it’s perfect for spontaneous, quick and dirty sex or taking your time (falling into bed for round two afterwards all clean and warm feels great). Also, this position always pulled double-duty for me and my boyfriend when we were long distance. I have many sexy memories of seeing him again after a long separation and immediately hopping in the shower together to wash off the airplane grime and enjoy a sweet reunion.
FUN PROP: I love a good unisex shower gel, like Neutrogena Rainbath. It’s perfectly musky and great for lathering each other up.
DANIELLE, 26, PHOTOGRAPHER
FAVORITE POSITION: We’re in a spooning position, and he moves onto his knees behind me and continues thrusting from there.
WHAT MAKES IT SO HOT: Other than it making me come almost instantly, it’s always a surprising move that helps us branch out from missionary. We often transition to doggy style or cowgirl after that.
FUN PROP: A little vibrator like the Dame Fin, otherwise it’s hard to reach my clit in this spot (it’s usually not needed though).
ANA, 24, PUBLICIST
FAVORITE POSITION: I’m straddling him, reverse-cowgirl style, while he’s propped up on his back in the bathtub and I’m bracing myself against the sides or the wall.
WHAT MAKES IT SO HOT: I love it because I get to take charge and control the angle, and the warm water helps us relax. It’s also a nice change of pace from the routine, so usually we’ll try it when we’re on vacation (since no one actually wants to clean their bathtub at home). The ambience is really sexy since everything’s candlelit and the water and soap naturally get everything going down there.
FUN PROP: Candles, bubbles, and bath oil. Just make sure you don’t slip around too much when you’re moving around (and prepare to get your knees a little bruised if you’re trying it in a smaller space)!
MAYA, 26, EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT
FAVORITE POSITION: We’re standing. I face my boyfriend and wrap my legs around his torso. He puts his hands beneath my butt and lifts me up and down while thrusting into me. I call it “The Claw.”
WHAT MAKES IT SO HOT: I’m a very independent woman, but I occasionally love being dominated. My partner is in total control here—I don’t have to do a thing! It may be a physically demanding position for him, but it makes me feel virtually weightless—and totally orgasmic.
FUN PROP: The Claw is even more fun when you’re greased up, so slick yourselves down with Johnson’s Baby Oil Gel beforehand. But practice it dry a few times first so you don’t get hurt!
AKYNOS, 28, INTERNET SEX COLUMNIST/MODEL
FAVORITE POSITION: I’m flat on my back. He slides on top of me and—OK, I admit it! The position that always does it for me is missionary!
WHAT MAKES IT SO HOT: It may seem like a tame choice for a sex columnist, but I just love looking into a guy’s eyes while we’re having sex. And it’s not like I just lie there—I love to grab his butt and draw him as deeply as I can inside of me so that I can feel every inch of him. I never get bored of climaxing like this. But men, be warned: If your mouth isn’t all over my lips and neck, you’re wasting my time!
FUN PROP: Try a little fresh air! When I was a teenager, I got it on with a guy on a rooftop in our neighborhood. I was so naive—I didn’t think anyone would see us up there. But the news got back to my mother, and all hell broke loose. Still, it’s a sexy thing to think back on…and I still love doing it outside.
MAJESTA, 28, NURSE’S ASSISTANT/ NANNY
FAVORITE POSITION: I lie on my back with my legs over my boyfriend’s shoulders. He leans forward with his chest resting on the backs of my thighs and plunges in and out of me. I tend to make a lot of noise, so we refer to it as “The Scream Machine.”
WHAT MAKES IT SO HOT: It allows for deeper penetration than almost any other position—and definitely leads to the most intense orgasms.
FUN PROPS: Strawberries, whipped cream, and champagne make for unbelievable foreplay. I suggest a hands-off policy while we eat, which my guy usually agrees to at first. But as he watches me sip champagne and pop cream-covered strawberries into my mouth, he goes crazy. By the time the last strawberry is gone, so are our clothes!
AFINITY, 26, ADMINISTRATIVE COORDINATOR
FAVORITE POSITION: My fiancé, Allen, and I kneel on the floor with a couch or bed in front of us to brace ourselves. He’s behind me, and I spread my legs a little wider than his for balance. He penetrates me from behind. I nicknamed this “The Reverse Allen,” because it’s a variation on another amazing position he came up with. He’s very creative!
WHAT MAKES IT SO HOT: It makes me feel like the sexiest woman on earth, because it pushes my chest out and pulls my stomach in so my body looks fantastic. And there are endless variations. During one recent quickie, I led Allen’s hand to my hair so he could tug on it. It was such a huge turn-on that I climaxed within seconds.
FUN PROPS: I love sliding on stockings and sky-high heels before sex. Nothing looks hotter than when I’m wearing only these.
RACHEL, 27, FITNESS COACH
FAVORITE POSITION: I’m riding him while his legs are draped over the side of the bed and I’m leaning back slightly and arching my back.
WHAT MAKES IT SO HOT: I feel like a rockstar because my entire body’s on display and I’ll admit that it’s always more engaging for me when I’m making eye contact with my boyfriend. He likes to brace himself against my shoulder or grab my chest when we’re in the thick of it.
FUN PROPS: It’s pretty simple, but I always go for a really lacy or sheer lingerie set, especially when we start out in this position. He either can’t wait to get me out of them or I’ll leave the top half rolled down around my waist for some peek-a-boo action.
Positions Women Typically Don’t Like
“It’s awkward and therefore unpleasant! In 69, it’s impossible to concentrate on both things (pleasuring and receiving pleasure) at once.”
“I’m 5 foot nothing, and tend to get it on with taller guys, which makes this position pretty much impossible most of the time. On the occasions where the guy has been more my height or particularly flexible enough to sit up and execute this, I just find myself getting either distracted by how good what he’s doing feels that I stop doing my part, or the opposite happens.”
“It makes no sense. I straight up say I’m not going to do it.
“Gag reflex and being squished/can’t focus? No, thank you. My partner and I both don’t like this position and prefer sex/pleasuring each other in other ways.”
2. Standing Up
“I really hate any position that does not involve me not lying on my back or cowgirl. It feels awkward and I end up concentrating on where my legs/arms are vs how it actually feels. When the suggestion to do this position comes up, I say, ‘no, let’s do this much better thing!’ Voila. On my back.”
“If I can avoid standing up during sex, I will. I guess I would like to avoid anything that involves moving around a lot, but this position is especially bad. It looks sexy in movies, but in practice, you’re two very different heights most of the time. How can you stand up and have sex when a penis is a foot above your vagina?”
“Every time I spoon with my boyfriend, I feel like we’re 80 years old. It’s just NOT sexy. I feel like we should save this position for when we’re married and have five children to worry about it. It’s so lazy. We’re young and alive so, let’s do doggy style or something.”
“There is not enough clitoral stimulation. I can only come by touching myself. My favorite is sideways or doggy-style (more lying down than on my knees, though). To avoid it, I just get in another position with my butt out.”
“I’m not into missionary because I feel like I’m being crushed. I don’t know. Maybe the guys I’m sleeping with don’t have enough upper body strength. I always feel like I can’t breathe. It just isn’t for me.”
“Okay, so lotus isn’t THAT bad. It is kind of intimate. What I hate about it is that I can’t get off in this position. I feel like I can barely move. Plus, my partner wants to make out the whole time, which I can’t get into. I need to focus on myself.”
“OMG cowgirl is so boring! I don’t get anything out of it at all. It’s completely exhausting. How can I have an orgasm when I’m dying and sweating? My partner cares enough about what I want that we rarely ever do it.”
7. Reverse Cowgirl
“I cannot even begin to describe how much I loathe this position. Your vagina does not even go in that direction. There is no way I’m having an orgasm when I’m trying not to throw my back out. Also, guys always want me to play with their balls while I’m there. As if I don’t have enough to worry about without focusing on your sack? Pass.”
“I can’t get the rhythm down and also I’ve gained 40 pounds since moving to NYC, and I could do without my partner seeing my butt and love handles from below. I just ask to watch The Office instead. Just kidding. I give blowjobs. And also I wasn’t kidding about The Office thing.”
