Sex Position 1: The Classic Reverse Cowgirl Position

How to do  the reverse cowgirl

To put it simply reverse cowgirl is just the backwards cowgirl position. The partner with a penis or strap-on lies on their back, then the partner on top straddles the other one with their bum and back facing their partner’s chest and legs either side of their partner’s crotch. If the partner on top gets tired try switching it up by squatting over your partner with your feet flat on the bed, this will give you more power to bounce up and down. Another option is the partner on bottom holds on to their lover’s hips and bounces them up and down this will provide extra support and movement.

Benefits

Have sex with a good view in this position, the seductive rhythm of your partners bum moving back and forth will send you into an erotic trance. This is also a great position for switching the power roles, allowing the person on top to take control, whilst their partner can relax sit back and enjoy the show. Reverse cowgirl offers easy access to clitoral stimulation (great news for the ladies), meaning both her g-spot and clitoris can be stimulated at the same time – hello orgasm heaven. If you sometimes find facing each other and locking eye contact intense this position is perfect for you, allowing you to lower your inhibitions, close your eyes and get lost in your own kinky fantasy world.

Orgasm Tip

Rather than just moving up and down if you are on top, try changing it up and rocking back and forth or side to side, the change in flow and sensation will drive you both wild.

Use a Helping Hand

For deeper orgasms that you won’t be able to forget, try using the vibrating my toy bullet to stimulate her clitoris. Small yet powerful this little bullet is the perfect toy to help you take advantage of the easy clit access in this position. If it is a guy on bottom try stroking the duo vibe vibrating couples toy along his gooch (the part between his balls and anus), he will be like putty around your legs.

The partner with a penis or strap-on is essentially the big spoon and lays behind the other partner who is the little spoon, both facing the same way.

Sex Position 7: The Scissors Sex Position

Scissor sex position for women
How to do it

When picturing the scissor position often same-sex female couples come to mind. Whilst the scissor is an amazing position for lesbian couples it can also be great for couples with different genitalia – any combination goes! To perform the scissor one partner lays with both of their legs spread out on the bed, one on top of the other (for some couples this will be the partner who is being penetrated). This partner then creates an opening to their genitalia by raising and bending the leg that is on top of the other leg. Now the other partners head will be at the opposite end to the bed, sofa, magic carpet (whatever surface floats your boat), at the same side as their partner’s feet (foot fetish heaven!). This partner (if a dangly genital is involved this will be the penetrating partner) then slides their lower leg underneath the other partners lower leg, so that the first partner’s leg is now between both of the others legs. If a penis is involved, this partner then moves his crotch over to penetrate, or if two females are scissoring both move your lady parts towards each other and start rubbing – queue the lubricant!

Benefits

The scissor position is great for couples wanting to experiment and add some communication into their sex life. While no one can deny doggy style is sex treasure, it can sometimes lack intimacy and connection. Facing each other so openly in the spooning position allows for real communication between the two of you during intercourse, show each other what you like with your facial expressions, try talking dirty to your partner to turn them on. Plus RUBBING! And lots of it so for the ladies, this position will always be a winner.

Orgasm Tip

One word LUBE – and lots of it. When there’s rubbing involved you can bet there will be some friction. Use lots of lubricant in this position to prevent this happening and make it more pleasurable for both of you. Early warning – this position can be a bit of an awkward one too find that magic rhythm, however, with a bit of time, patience and laughter you will get there in the end and have some fun whilst trying to find it! So be open-minded and scissor the night away.

Use a Helping Hand
