As a clinical sexologist, these are a few of the sex positions that I instruct couples to do as part of the home assignment exercises. These are the best sex positions for maintaining a longer, more passionate love making session. 

All of these intimate sex positions, if done correctly, can actually bring couples closer together.

1. The Rocking Horse

This is a wonderful position because the couple is face to face, kissing and slow passionate penetration can take place.

The man sits cross-legged and leans back supporting himself with both arms behind him or leaning against a wall. The woman kneels over his lap hugging him with her thighs and lowers herself down at the speed and depth that she determines. This also allows her to adjust her body to him making it possible for clitoral stimulation as well.

This position is wonderful for the man and woman to kiss and look at each other face to face, and loving kiss each other's neck or nipples.

2. The Curled Angel (aka Anjou-Style)

The woman curls up on her side, knees drawn up and the man spoons her from behind. Penetration is fairly easy from his position and the man can reach around to touch her breast and clitoris.

This position is also good for deep penetration done in a slower motion while still maintaining an embrace.

This is a wonderful position for women who are pregnant. The man can cuddle her, kiss her neck, ear and face while slowly and intimately making love to her.

3. The Glowing Juniper

In this position, the woman lies on her back with her legs open and outstretched. The man sits between her knees, facing her with his legs outstretched. He can lean against a wall or pillows for more comfort.

He lifts her hips to aid penetration and at the same time he can lean down to kiss her belly, breasts and face providing his flexibility.

4. The Rowing Boat

To get into this position, the man starts by lying back so the woman can sit down slowly onto his penis.

The man then sits up, bringing his knees and torso up so that the couple is face to face and his knees are on the outside of her body. She should also have her knees bent up so her legs are outside his and she 

can wrap her legs around him.

He slips his arms over her calves and under her knees and she slips her hands under his knees and round her thighs so that she can grip his hands. It almost looks like a rocking position.

The intimate part about this position is the couple is face to face looking in each other’s eyes and being able to kiss and have a more intimate bond. The penetration is slow and rocking slighting together can create the thrusting motion.

5. The Peg

The man lies down on his back with his legs outstretched. The woman then gets on top of him and lets him enter her.

As he does so, she stretches her legs out straight behind her and starts to move back and forth as fast or as slow as she likes. It's a great position for full body contact, kissing and touching throughout. When her legs are together this also creates a tighter fit for the couple during penetration.

The intimacy of her lying on top of him and being able to hug while having slow long thrusting penetration is part of the love making.

6. The Zen Pause

This position provides a slower, intimate moment.

It is also recommended when the man is close to orgasm and wants to slow it down for a longer love making session. When on the brink of the orgasm, take a break from a heart-pounding position and try this holding pattern.

People roll onto their sides, face-to-face (if possible, he stays inside her the entire time), and this puts the passion on a low simmer with legs intertwined and chests pressed against one another. This allows a slower build up for both the man and the women to an incredible climax.

This is a wonderful position for giving a loving tease to each other while maintaining the closeness of him inside without much move moment.
