In this position, she sits on her heels and then leans forward. While remaining on her haunches, she extends her hands forward; all the while, her back remains straight. This variation of doggy style grants you full access to her vagina. (If she has a bigger butt, you may need to spread her cheeks to allow for deep penetration.)
2 The Flatiron
Have her lie face down on the bed with her knees slightly bent and hips slightly raised. For comfort, and to increase the angle of her hips, you can place a pillow under her lower abs. From here, enter her from behind and keep your weight off of her by propping yourself up with your arms. (Or if she likes the feeling of your weight, grab her by the hips and thrust from there). This position, in my humble opinion, is the best position for deep penetration. For the man, it feels incredible—so incredible, in fact, that you’re likely to orgasm quickly.
3 Happy Baby Pose
While she’s lying on her back, have her raise her bent legs into the air. Her legs should be slightly past shoulder-length apart, and for this pose to really work, she needs to grip the soles of her feet with her hands. Happy Baby Pose not only allows for deeper penetration, it’s also an ideal position if you want to engage her clitoris too. With one hand you can stimulate her clitoris, and with your other free hand, you can hold onto her for support.
4 Legs on Shoulders
While she’s on her back, have her drape her legs on your shoulders. The angle of her body should be roughly 90 degrees. The legs on shoulders move should be considered a staple, as it allows for deep vaginal penetration. If standard “legs over shoulders” isn’t doing anything for her, try grabbing her butt and tilting her pelvis upward, slightly toward you. As always, ask her what feels best, but a small tweak can be the difference between her not orgasming and orgasming within minutes.
5 The Pearly Gates
The Pearly Gates isn’t a popular sex position, even though it requires little strength and flexibility as far as sex positions go. While you’re lying flat on your back, have your partner lie on top of you; her back should be on your chest. Then you can thrust up and into her. This position can hit her G-spot because most penises, when erect, aren’t at a 90-degree angle to the body; most tilt upwards. The position works with your penis’ natural curvature, allowing you to penetrate deeper. From this position, it’s also easy for either you or your partner to stimulate her clitoris.
6 The Pretzel
Kneel and straddle her left leg while she’s lying on her left side. From here, she should bend her right leg around the right side of your waist, allowing full access to her vulva. From here, you can really angle yourself deep inside of her. If you push her upright leg back, there really is no limit to how deep you can go.
7 Seated Wheelbarrow
You should be seated upright at the end of the bed. Then have your partner get into position with her hands firmly planted on the floor in front of her. Grab your partner by her hips, position her vagina over your penis, and then begin penetrating. This position could be slightly strenuous for your partner, but you can help her by holding most of her weight. She shouldn’t be fully supporting herself on her hands—her hands should only be used to steady herself.
While you’re both lying on your sides, effectively spooning, enter her from behind. To increase intensity, you can wrap your arms around her, holding her tightly. If for some reason you're noticing that you’re unable to penetrate her deeply, lean away from her. This allows you to reposition yourself to an angle where you can penetrate her more deeply.
9 Stand and Deliver
Stand at the edge of a bed or desk while she lies back and raises her legs to her chest. Her knees are bent as if she's doing a "bicycling" exercise. Grab her ankles and enter her. Since this position allows for really deep penetration, make sure she’s warmed up, turned on, and well-lubricated before going all-in. You can also place her legs over your shoulders.
Last but certainly not least is classic missionary. In this staple, your partner lies on her back, and you crawl on top of her, facing her. From there, you can easily penetrate your partner. Not only does this position allow for deep penetration, it’s also a somewhat intimate position, since you can kiss and make sustained eye contact while having sex. You know what they say, “If ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” If this position is working for you and your partner, then keep at it.
