7 Sex Positions That All Grown-Ass Women Should Try

Once you have a few years of sexual exploration under your belt, so to speak, chances are you’re ready to get a little adventurous and experiment with new things. So the sex positions that all grown-ass women should try are best suited to the ladies who know what they like and how to get it. Because going full #bosslady can include the bedroom too, and faking it is not going to happen.

These positions are geared to support the realities of women’s anatomies and sexual responses. “The sex positions giving you even a chance of achieving an orgasm are ones that stimulate your clitoris," as explained in Elite Daily. "Or, even better, ones which give you easy access to do it yourself." Knowing how to get yourself off, communicating this to your partner, and going for it when the time is right are pretty key aspects of a healthy sex life.

So to all my grown and sexy ladies, here are the daring and effective positions that can jazz up your bedroom repertoire. There’s no harm in enjoying a little trial and error to find out what you like. Because adulthood already comes with enough responsibilities, you might as well make the most of the good parts.

1. Woman On Top

It's difficult to overstate the awesomeness of this position. "It can be confidence-building because it physically helps women to be in control," sex researcher Debby Herbenick  said in Woman's Day. "Make sure to do it your way, though. Woman on top can be done kneeling, squatting, facing forward or facing backward." Basically, you can make it anything you like.

2. Caboose

This is a great choice if you'd like to take it easy. "While he sits on the bed or a chair, back yourself into his lap and spoon each other while seated," as suggested in Women's Health. Bonus: easy access to the clitoris.

3. Advanced Missionary

Want to go for the G-spot? Healthy Women recommends you "try missionary position with your legs propped up on either of your partner's shoulders." Then just lie back and enjoy.

4. Coital Alignment Technique

If you want clitoral stimulation during missionary, then the coital alignment technique may be your new favorite thing. New Health Advisor has very detailed instructions, but in general you will start in missionary and then have your partner slide upward until "his pelvis aligns with yours." This makes things hotter for everyone.

5. Standing Tiger / Crouching Dragon

You have to admire some of these creative names. In this one, you will crouch on the bed on all fours while he stands behind you. "In this position you can easily reach your clitoris with one hand," as noted in Cosmopolitan. Everyone wins.

6. The Straddle

GIPHY

This is another easy one. As explained in Elite Daily, "Have him sit up normally while you straddle him so you’re face to face. Now, instead of bouncing up and down, simply swirl yourself around and rock back and forth so his penis hits the wall of your G-spot over and over again." It might become a new favorite.

7. Supported Doggy

It's a new twist on an old favorite. Refinery 29 lays it all out there: "You kneel by the side of the bed, facing it and bracing your arms against the mattress. Your partner kneels behind you." This version does not require such massive arm strength.
