The 5 Best Sex Positions For Anal Play Beginners

So you’ve delved into the world of anal play, you’ve read all of the awesome guides on anal sex ... and you’re ready to give it a go.

You’ve got the basics covered — lots of lube, condoms, be sure to start slow — but you’re left wondering, "What position should I try so it won’t end up being, LITERALLY, a pain in the ass?!"

Though many of your favorite positions for vaginal penetration are just as fun for anal, you may find that some are suddenly uncomfortable or awkward due to the slight change in angle and anatomy.

If you don’t know where to begin, here are five of the simplest (and best) anal sex positions to get you started!

1. Spooning

Spooning is great for anal because it’s uber comfortable for both partners.

It also has the added benefit of allowing your guy easy access to your breasts, clit, and vagina for added stimulation, which is great for women who don't orgasm from anal sex alone.

2. Girl-on-Top

Girl-on-top positions are awesome for anal because they provide you with the maximum level of control, making it easy to take things slow if they start to become a little too intense.

As an added bonus, your guy’s hand are free to roam over your body as you see fit.

3. Missionary

The missionary position might have a boring reputation, but try spicing it up a bit by using it during anal instead. When your guy is on top doing most of the work, it leaves your hands free to play with whatever part of yourself will help you reach orgasm.

If you crave intimacy, the face-to-face aspect of this position can help to achieve that and creates ample opportunities for kissing.

4. Reverse Cowgirl

As a variation of those girl-on-top positions, reverse cowgirl once again gives you control over speed and depth.

Your partner will love it too for the same reason he always loves it when you’re on top — he can relax and enjoy a sexy view of your best ASSets!

5. From Behind

Anal positions which incorporate rear entry (such as doggy style or bending over) often allow for an easier orgasm, as your partner’s penis is able to put indirect stimulation and pressure on your G-spot through the vaginal wall.

For added comfort, try lying down with a pillow beneath your stomach for added extra support and an easier angle. You’ll want to be extra careful with rear entry positions when you’re an anal beginner, as they don’t afford much control to you as the receiver.

As with any sexual experience, do whatever feels most comfortable for you.

Give these classic positions a go, but if none of them feel quite right, don’t be afraid to try new things and find your own perfect anal position.

Note: This guide was written with male-penetrating-female couples in mind, however, most of the positions and tips mentioned work well with in other types of relationships too, with slight adaptations.
