11 Best Positions For Morning Sex

Rise and shine, lovebirds: morning just might become your new favorite time of day. When you hit the snooze button to enjoy some morning sex, your a.m. routine can improve drastically. It could help you wake up better than even the strongest cup of coffee. Especially if you implement some of the best positions for morning sex.

Sure, night time is the go-to time for most sexy activities. But it's not always the best time of day for everyone. What happens when you're completely wiped out after a long day of work, and the only thing you want to do in bed is sleep?

This is where morning sex comes into play. Sure, you and your SO may still be a little sleepy when you first rouse, but you're probably much more refreshed than at the end of the day. Plus, if you wake up early enough there is nothing else competing for your attention. Your mind and schedule are both blank.

You don't have to go at it immediately after waking (a quick trip to the bathroom to brush your teeth is totally OK), and morning sex has so much to offer. You get a few more minutes in a nice warm bed, you and your SO get to bond before anything else can intervene, and it's an easy way to get your heart pumping. Once you review these easy-to-master morning sex positions, you just might become a morning person after all.



Want to avoid the issue of morning breath? Take a tip from Women's Health and hop on top in cowgirl position. Neither of you will even miss kissing for a few minutes.



If you're in a hurry, this position will help you both out. As noted in Cosmopolitan, 69 is an excellent morning position because it doesn't take a ton of foreplay. Plus, you get to spend the rest of your day enjoying memories of your new morning routine.


Sexy Spoons

Feeling lazy? This is the one for you. According to Good To Know, spooning is an intimate and low-energy way to enjoy morning sex. Just think of it as advanced cuddling.



Why mess with a classic? As noted in Lelo, missionary is a straightforward position that pretty much works for everyone. Chances are, you can pull it off while both of you are still waking up.


Doggy Style

Sometimes, sleepy experimentation is extremely fun. As noted by Men's Health, you can opt for doggy style in the mornings to release your uninhibited side. Who knew you could get so wild before coffee?


Leg Lift

If you need to get ready for the day but still want to make time for lovemaking, why not multitask? According to Glamour, the leg lift, in which you crook your leg around your partner as you go at it, provides the necessary support and stability to pull off shower sex. (That said, some grippy bath mats are probably a good investment if this move becomes a regular in your rotation.)


Assisted Missionary

Put your pillow to work. To spice up your basic missionary position, stick a pillow beneath your butt or lower back, as suggested in Refinery 29. It helps you and your partner match up a little more closely.



Even if you don't have a handy table in your bedroom, you can use a chest of drawers, bench, or even the bed itself. In this position, you lie back on a surface that is close to his hip level, and let your partner enjoy being at the perfect level for thrusting, as noted in Thrillist. Best of all, you can just kick back and relax.


Belly Down

Hey, if you sleep on your stomach, you might not even need to move much. As noted in Men's Fitness, you can lie face-down on the bed and have your partner enter that way (think of it as an upside-down missionary style). It will present some new feelings compared the the standard positions, and of course it's also a pretty relaxing way to pass the time.



If you're looking for a quick route to orgasm, then this may be the move for you. According to Elite Daily, you can have your partner sit up and then ride them from there. Think of it as cowgirl, but with more fluid rocking than bouncing.


Legs Over Shoulders

OK, this one may sound like a lot of work, but it's easier than you think once you put it into practice. Take a note from The Frisky and drape your feet over your partner's shoulders. It may look like an advanced form of missionary style, but the results speak for themselves.
