2. Face-To-Face

A great place to start the adventure is with face-to-face sex positions, such as the ‘Missionary’ basic sex position which provides the best angle for forward facing dirty talk and deep eye contact. You can better tell from your partner’s facial expressions what’s working for them and what isn’t. And, if it’s your first time and you feel slightly anxious, you’ll be able to give feedback on the speed and intensity every step of the way (which will help you feel more comfortable and in control).

You can also try interlocking your legs and rubbing your bodies together to vary the sensations or raise your legs up to explore the angle or depth of penetration. There’s a reason many people list the good ol’ ‘Missionary’ as one of the best, different sex positions out there. Try it for yourself and see why.

3. Sitting Straddling

Another classic is the often nicknamed ‘Cowgirl’ or ‘Cowboy’ sex position, where one of you straddles the other with knees facing forward and bent. This basic sex position allows the one on top to control the speed, depth, and angle of penetration, which sometimes helps with cumming faster. But don’t worry, the partner underneath has a pleasurable time too. They also get to watch the show as their partner does all the work overtop of them.

If you’re looking to enjoy each other’s bodies and have a full view of everything, this is the perfect position. You might feel a stronger emotional connection as there’s plenty of sexy eye contact. And if you’re lucky enough to be laying underneath your partner, you can explore their body with your hands and also help move them up and down by supporting their hips. This is an intense sex position to try that benefits everyone’s future orgasm.

4. Sex From Behind

Mainly known as ‘Doggystyle’, this takes place when you enter your partner from behind as you’re both on your knees. This position normally allows for deeper penetration to occur. ‘Doggystyle’ is a winner for many reasons. It’s a free moving position which gives way to many touching opportunities and both parties can control the depth and intensity of the thrusts. Plenty of people favour this different sex position because the moaning and releasing moments are seemingly endless. We recommend finding a great Durex lube* to make moments like these all the more wet and immaculate.
