7 Unique Sex Positions To Make Your Orgasm Stronger

Sex can be a lot of things, with pleasurable being one of the biggest. But for many people with vaginas, getting off can be a little bit of a challenge. For cisgender women, the ins and outs or orgasms may not be enough to get us to the point of explosion. But, by paying attention to your anatomy and knowing what works for you, it can be easy to find positions that will make your orgasm stronger and totally blow your mind.

Reaching a more intense climax can be as simple as stepping outside of your comfort zone. And although adding a vibrator into the mix can definitely help, it’s not required to achieve new levels of pleasure. Some cisgender women can orgasm from penetration alone, but the vast majority of people with vaginas require clitoral stimulation to achieve orgasmic release. Therefore, the positions that will best provide mind blowing orgasms are the ones that can provide firm and consistent clitoral contact. Surprisingly, that stimulation can be achieved with a few simple modifications to some of the best known (and well-loved) positions.

Just a few tweaks and adjustments should have you writhing in pleasure and having the kinds of orgasms you’d only dreamed of and deserve.

1. Cowpoke

This position is usually known as the cowgirl, but it's worth noting not all people with vaginas are women. But when you attempt this position, forget the bouncing up and down you see in porn movies. Instead, lean forward and grind against your partner’s pelvis — this will make for intense clitoral stimulation and can provide the big O you’re after.

2. Doggy Style

Yes, really. For people that like deep penetration, doggy style can’t be beat. It also makes providing clitoral stimulation with your hand a cinch. Hello, O!

3. Reverse Cowpoke

Turn your “cowgirl” around for increased leverage and the ability to provide manual clitoral stimulation.

4. Sideways Straddle

Licensed sex psychotherapist Vanessa Marin wrote for Bustle that the sideways straddle position means “you’ll essentially be straddling one of [your partner’s] knees, turning away from [them].” It’s similar to reverse cowpoke, but turned slightly. From this position, you can get amazing friction against your partner’s pelvis and thigh, providing the coveting clitoral stimulation that leads to intense oragasms for so many people.

5. Tight Squeeze

In the tight squeeze, G-spot stimulation is at its best. To get into it, you should lie flat on your stomach and poke your butt into the air a bit. Your partner should lie almost flat on top of you, entering you from behind. The squeezing of your legs together also results in a lot of nice friction.

6. Pillow Play

Everyday Health suggested placing a pillow under your hips during missionary position, which will tilt your pelvis up and allow for more clitoral stimulation than standard missionary does.

7. Spooning

The best position for lazy sex can also be one that brings the fireworks with the addition of a little clitoral stimulation with your free hand.
