Try these, like... TONIGHT.
1. Missionary Done Right
According to many sex experts, women get the most pleasure out of basic missionary sex. There's nothing fancy about it, but many women said they love the closeness and the intimacy of having their partner's weight on them, the ability to kiss, talk, nibble, plus a lot of clit stimulation.
"In order for missionary position to be most effective, guys, make sure you're entering her at the correct angle. This is an important position to master; by going in diagonally — rather than straight in and out — there's more friction for clitorial stimulation, which is best, since that's how most women achieve orgasm," says Coleen Singer from Sssh.com.
Just as the name implies, "ride 'em, cowgirl!" In this position, the woman straddles the man from above, and very much is in control of the action and pace of sex.
"Its other benefit is that the man is in a position to allow his hands to explore her body, stimulate her clit and breasts, and pull her forward onto him for a passionate kiss. Cowgirl is important to include in your lovemaking because it inherently flips the 'power balance' over to your lover and gives her the dominant role," says Singer.
3. The Crisscross
This is another great position for clitoral stimulation. Both partners are lying down.
"The woman is on her back and the guy is on his side. She has her legs draped over his middle like a giant X. Since your bodies aren't pressed up against each other, either the man or the woman can reach down to rub her clitoris. This position also lends itself to using vibrating sex toys on her. The crisscross is a very useful and valuable position, as it allows you to give her total clitoral stimulation and great orgasms," says Singer.
4. Ankles Up
When you're on top of somebody or flat, you can't always achieve full penetration, which is why adjusting her leg positioning allows for deeper contact.
"Guys, put her ankles up over your shoulders. It allows you to go as deep inside of her as possible and hit her G-spot. The other important aspect of this is that, as a variation on missionary, it keeps eye contact at the maximum," says Singer.
You don't need to be flexible enough to sit completely cross-legged like a pretzel; you just need to be able to get into a seated position with your erection facing up.
"From here, she'll sit in your lap, facing you and wrapping her legs around your hips/waist. You'll achieve maximum penetration and she can be fully in control, either riding you or rocking her hips while she holds onto your shoulders for support. Cross-legged is also an important position as it evens the playing field as far as control of the action," says Singer.
6. Standing Wall
"I like to use 'over the door' wrist restraints and blindfold my partner, teasing her with breath, commands, and some gentle slapping and nibbling, suggestive finger and p*ssy-licking. I like to run a really soft fabric up her thighs and hips, and over her tits and shoulders, and then slide up to her neck, hold it tight, and kiss her as my fingers caress her p*ssy. I'll play with her like that until her legs start to wobble, then I just lift her up and f*ck her against the door, telling her to kiss me but staying just out of her reach," says Magnus Sullivan of ManShop.com.
7. The Three-Legged Standing Position
While standing up facing him, hook one leg over your partner's hip as he penetrates you.
"This position requires some balancing skills, so stay close to a wall, dresser or the kitchen counter the first few times as you get the hang of this one," says Singer.
8. The Butterfly
Laying on the edge of the bed, move your legs up his chest, placing your ankles on his shoulders.
"Arch your back while he lifts your bottom off the bed, and then you can lay back and enjoy the sensation and the visual of him standing over you. The butterfly also allows for very deep penetration, with your partner having a great deal of control over the angle of insertion and intensity of thrusts," says Singer.
9. The Lotus
As he sits on the bed or floor cross-legged, climb on top and lower down onto his penis, gently wrapping your arms and legs around him.
"It's also a fabulous position for clit stimulation as the shaft of his penis is in the perfect angle to rub on your love button. The additional bonus of The Lotus is it allows your partner to take aim at your G-spot with the head of his penis," says Singer.
10. Reverse Cowgirl
"You see a lot of it in porn, but for some reason, it's too much for a lot of couples to stop what they're doing, when they're in the swing of things, and face away from each other. It's incredible how easy it is to shift so that he hits your G-spot just right, and it's easy spanking, if you're into that. I'm amazed at how infrequently couples break out this simple move," says Tina, a woman who wishes to remain anonymous.
11. The Flatiron
The woman lies down on her stomach with her legs straight and her hips raised slightly.
"The man takes her from behind, which allows him deep access. With subtle adjustments of her hips, she should be able to find that sweet spot where he's hitting not just the G-spot, but her A-spot as well. Bonus: either of them can reach around to give her clitoris some love, and guys tend to last longer in this position," says Antonia Hall, a psychologist, relationship expert and sexpert.
12. The High Rise
In this deep thrusting position, the woman is on her back with legs raised and the man is kneeling before her.
"A pillow can be placed under her bottom to elevate her hips, and she can alternate between resting her feet on his shoulders and supporting her hips when she takes them wide. He can easily alternate his thrusts in this position, allowing him to tease and stimulate both her G- and A-spots, and offers perfect clitoral access for even greater pleasure. It also allows the couple to look into each other's eyes and admire each other's bodies," says Hall.
13. The Yab Yum
This classic Tantric position can be easily adapted, so don't write this one off if you're not currently in perfect yogi shape.
"The man can sit either crossed-legged or with his legs outstretched, or he can sit at the end of the bed or on a couch. The woman sits on his lap, facing him. This is a wonderfully intimate position, in which a couple can look into each other's eyes, kiss deeply, synchronize their breathing and connect deeply. It also offers her great G-spot stimulation and the opportunity to set the pace," says Hall.
14. The Wheelbarrow

We don't all have the upper arm strength to pull off the classic wheelbarrow, but there are variations that will offer you just as much pleasure.
"Whether she's standing stretched out in downward dog, or resting on her elbows with her hips and chest supported by pillows, the elevation of her hips as he takes her from behind offers the perfect G-spot stimulation and also access to clit play," says Hall.
