1. The Sit 'N Straddle

Have your partner sit cross-legged while you straddle them with a knee on either side of their lap. Rock back and forth at your own leisure, for your own pleasure. According to Cosmopolitan, "with you in charge of the speed and depth, you can tease the supersensitive head of his penis and tantalize the lower third of your vagina, which is packed with excitable nerve endings." Bingo.

2. The Octopus

Sex blogger Girl on the Net took a few girl on top positions for a whirl with her partner to test them out for Cosmopolitan UK, and she recommended this position for both you and your partner. Your partner sits on the floor with their hands on the ground behind them, spreading their legs with their knees slightly bent. You straddle your partner, keeping your hands on the floor for support, and lift each of your legs to their shoulders. If you're doing it right, you should look vaguely like an octopus. A sexy octopus. This one might take some stretching and a few tries, but once you get the hang of it, your G-spot will thank you.

3. The Om

For those of you looking for a session that's nice and slow, have your partner sit cross-legged while you straddle their lap, and cross your legs behind their back. Though it's definitely not easy to build up very much speed, you'll be hitting all the right angles.  According to Woman's Health, the key to this position is rocking, not thrusting.

4. The Lap Limbo

As the name implies, you'll need a sofa for this number, so you can sit in their lap. Have your partner sit on the sofa, putting your legs up over their shoulders. Using your hands to grip the back of the sofa, you'll be able to build up a good momentum. Girl on the Net assured Cosmopolitan UK that you'll never look at furniture the same way again.

5. The Backup Boogie

With your partner lying down with a pillow beneath their head, you place your hands on the floor as you straddle them, your backside in full view. Reverse until you're able to back up onto your partner's penis, having them grip your thighs while you control the thrusting and the angle. A distant relative of doggy style, Cosmopolitan recommends this position if you like to be in control.

6. The Sofa Squat

Giphy

A little bit like the Lap Limbo up there, you'll need your trusty sofa for this one. Girl on the Net told Cosmopolitan UK that this position will cause some sofa squeaking if you're doing it right. With your partner leaning back while sitting on the sofa, straddle their lap while keeping your feet on either side of the sofa, as though you're crouching down on top of your partner's penis. The face to face action is prime in this position, and it's super easy to manage.

7. The Joystick Joyride

Giphy

Have your partner lie down with their hands above their head. Straddle your partner and push your legs forward, so that your feet are on either side of their shoulders. Pressing your hands either against the floor or your partner's shins for balance and control, start swiveling your hips in a figure eight motion, like — you guessed it, a joystick. Cosmopolitan recommends this position for the independent woman, since you're in control of the speed, direction, and general level of activity.

8. The Desk Detail

Giphy

This number happens to be an old favorite of Girl on the Net's. A desk and an office chair will help set the mood for this number. Have your partner sit in the office chair with their feet on the ground, and you sit in their lap with your back against their chest. Using the desk in front of you for balance, have at it.

9. The Wild Ride

Giphy

With your partner on their back, lower yourself down while facing them, taking a kneeling position. Keeping your knees on the bed, wrap your feet around your partner's calves or knees, and grip the bed sheets on either side of your partner's head. With a little tilt of your pelvis and small tight motions, you'll be yelling "yeehaw" all night long. According to Cosmopolitan, "you can up the ante as you like, taking the wild ride from slow and sweet to bucking bronco," and those small tight motions keep your pelvis connected to his, making you feel super connected.
