11 Positions For Sleepy Sex, Because You Can Be Tired & Want To Get It On

When you're tired, it can be difficult to get in the mood. But whether you're in a longterm relationship or have a little black book of friends with benefits, there's no reason not to cash in your sex chip just because you're drowsy. And there are a number of positions for sleepy sex get you off without qualifying you for the sex olympics. Hey, just because you don't break a sweat doesn't mean it's not good.

In fact, lazy girl sex positions can help you get the most out of a night's sleep. That's right, psychologist Cindy M. Meston, director of the Sexual Psychophysiology Laboratory at the University of Texas at Austin told Women's Health that during orgasm, the hormone prolactin is released, and this hormone helps you sleep sounder. Meston added that "subdued" sex — also know as sex achieved from sleepy sex positions — will aide your sleep as opposed to more acrobatic sex that tends to energize people.

Of course, this isn't to say you should force someone to have sex or be forced to have sex if you're tired. If you want sleep over sex, that decision should be respected. But if you need a little help lulling yourself to deep sleep and happen to be horny, here are some sleepy sex positions to get you going.


Spooning With Penetration

Instructions provided by the Bad Girl's Bible help you get into spooning with penetration. But if you need a cheat sheet on this position, you're lazier than I thought. Kidding, of course. As the ultimate lazy girl, I like to use a cheat sheet between the sheets at all time.


The Twizzler

According to The Stir, the Twizzler is a modified spooning with penetration. He fits his top legs between yours, allowing your bodies to resemble, you guessed it; a Twizzler. This little modification allows for deeper penetration.



You don't have to do much during this position to enjoy it, but if you want to try some little tweaks on missionary to make it better, this classic position will get you off without fail. And without a lot of exertion either.


Missionary With A Twist

Board-certified sexologist Justine Shuey told Shape that if you wrap your legs around your partner's back you can shift the angle of penetration so that his penis touches your clit with every thrust. The leg wrap does not take a lot out of you, but it will make your orgasm better, I promise.


Afternoon Delight

You lie back while your partner lies on their side, perpendicular to your body. Now you lift your legs so they form a 90-degree angle, and the vertex is the junction of your privates. Too much geometry for a sleepy girl like you? Check out this illustration of Afternoon Delight.


Modified 69

69 lying side-by-side is one way to make this pleasurable position all the more comfortable, according to Cosmopolitan. Dimming the lights, or turning them off altogether also helps you get out of your head, while giving it.


Downward Dog

Think of this position as modified doggy style. Rather than getting on all fours, lie flat on your belly in this modified doggy position, which according to Glamour, gets you off without making you break a sweat.


The Couch Potato

Yup, the editors of Cosmopolitan really outdid themselves by naming a sex position for lazy girls: the Couch Potato. What this position lacks in nomenclature, it makes up for in pleasure, because it has you straddling your guy for plenty of C-spot stimulation.


Pleasure Pick-Me-Up

In Cosmopolitan UK's Pleasure Pick-Me-Up, your guy leans against the wall and picks you up. Wrap your legs around his waist and bounce up and down at your desired pace. While he will be getting a workout, you're just doing your thing, in his arms. If you're drowsy but your man is a night owl, this position is for you.


Modified Reverse Cowgirl, AKA The Backup Boogie

If you've ever tried reverse cowgirl, you know that it involves a lot of effort, as this position works your quads, hamstrings, and butt. However, modified reverse cowgirl or the Backup Boogie has you riding backwards, but positioned on all fours, according to Cosmopolitan. Because of the added stability, your muscles don't get as tired, and you can enjoy this position as much as he will.


Position Of Your Choice Plus A Sex Toy And Lube

If you're feeling sleepy but still want to get off, just do it in your favorite position. Take some of the pressure off by adding a sex toy and lots of lube, which according to Women's Health, is a surefire ways to enjoy yourself, and without much effort.



The real ultimate sleepy sex position is lying back and letting your lover go to town between your legs. According to Go Ask Alice, your lover can feel you orgasm with his tongue. Data from the National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior also claimed that a guy loves to give you oral. So, no need to feel indulgent. Just relax and enjoy yourself.
