Not exactly surprising: after we polled nearly 500 Women’s Health readers recently, we found that those three positions frequently bring women to orgasm. To find out why they’ve become fan favourites, we delved back into our playbook of classic moves guaranteed to make her orgasm.
Missionary is great for you because you have control over the depth and speed of thrusting. And she loves it because it’s intimate and it requires lots of eye and skin contact.
Bonus: the friction of your pelvis indirectly stimulates her clitoris, which most women need to achieve orgasm, according to the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction.
Also known as woman on top, cowgirl puts her in control of the pace and depth of penetration, giving her freedom to mix it up between shallow and deep thrusts. As for you? Well, you can’t beat that kind of view.
Just keep in mind that reverse cowgirl came in as the most overrated sex position when we polled 1100 Women's Health readers.
This perennial fave allows for deep penetration, which feels amazing for the both of you. Remember: thrust slowly and gently so you don’t hurt her.
Now that you’ve mastered the basics, we encourage you get a little more creative in bed. Here's a VERY good place to start.
