When it comes to sex, we often get so caught up in orgasms and “goal oriented” sex that we miss the mark. We are so busy trying to impress each other with our sexual prowess that we forget the simple pleasures of good old-fashioned, HOT sex!

These three basic sexual positions will bring you back to that space of connection and romance that inevitably leads to deeper satisfaction.


1. Missionary

Good old Missionary Position is one of the most romantic sex positions there is.

Face to face and heart to heart, it allows partners to intimately connect on a deeper and more meaningful level. The bodies are in alignment and easy entry into the vagina means you’re not angling for any acrobatics — you’re just focused on each other.


Partners are able to gaze into each other’s eyes, breathe together, take long passionate kisses, maintain body-to-body closeness, and synchronize their movements.

Take your time and enjoy the pose that makes penetration more satisfying, often leading to intense orgasms for women and men.

2. Woman On Top

Woman-on-top sex positions include go-to's like “Cowgirl,” “Reverse Cowgirl,” “The Lotus,” “Yab-Yum,” etc.



Women love these positions because they allow them to be able to control the speed, angle and depth of penetration. When a woman is on top, it makes it easier for her to move in a way that feels more pleasurable for her. The man’s hands are free to roam and stimulate other pleasure points of her body such as her breasts, back, butt, etc., which also helps to increase her body’s sensitivity.

These positions also offer direct stimulation of the clitoris and G-spot which can maximize her chances of having an orgasm.

3. Spooning

With spooning positions, both partners can cuddle closely together. The angle of this position puts pressure in all the right places for both partners. Although spooning does not allow for eye contact, it offers a nuzzling closeness that’s hard to beat.


Similarly to the woman on top positions, spooning positions allows the man all access to all the pleasure points on the woman’s body. Her partner can caress her stomach, breast, neck, and clitoris. Another reason this position is so popular is because of the full-body contact which allows for cuddling and low-intensity sex that can last for a long time.

Don’t get me wrong, there is absolutely nothing wrong with a sweaty, highly charge, acrobatic sex session.


However, sometimes we need to take back to the basics. With these three sexual positions, you cannot go wrong.
