Sex Positions, Illustrated

Go back to the text-only, unillustrated version of this page.

At the moment of penetration, a tight pussy or asshole needs to be expanded to take a larger cock and, conversely, a capacious hole needs to be contracted for a smaller dick, or else a dildo used as well.

For Larger Cocks

Here are some ways of opening up the pussy or asshole to take a larger cock (or strap-on).

The Flower

The receiving partner lays on their back and raises their hips to a level above their head, e.g. by placing a pillow under the small of their back.

The Wide Open

The receiving partner lies on their back, and splays both of their legs – straight or bent – high and wide. The penetrating partner can fuck in a lying, kneeling, crouching or standing position, facing their lover.

The Leg Raise

The receiving partner lies on their side and lifts their upper leg vertically to the ceiling, in a straight or bent position, while their partner lies on their side, too, and fucks them from the front or behind.

The Way of Heaven

Used to accommodate the largest cocks or open up the tightest hole, the receiving partner lies on their back and spreads both legs in a bent position, pulling their knees back towards their chest. The penetrating partner then pushes their partner’s legs apart at the thighs or else the receiving partner grabs the backs of their knees with their forearms.

For Smaller Cocks

Here are some ways of contracting a pussy or asshole to enjoy a smaller cock.

The Box

Lying down, one on top of the other or both on their sides, with extended legs, the two lovers face each other as they fuck.

The Squeeze

Legs extended, the receiving partner squeezes their thighs together once their partner has penetrated.

The Vine

Legs extended, the receiving partner crosses one of their legs over the other at the calves after their partner has penetrated.

The Snare

The receiving partner contracts their pelvic floor muscles to grip their partner’s cock or dildo.

Be careful when trying these that the cock can still get in and out easily. A ripped foreskin is no fun.

Extra Suggestions

Here are some additional suggestions. If they seem tricky at first, try practicing them in water.

Try positions on the bed, couch, chair, recliner, in the bath, shower, hot tub, or a private pool. Different locations offer different opportunities, new ways to decline your body, different things to hang onto, so you can vary and perfect a position until it suits you both.

The Yawn

The receiving partner lies on their back, raises both their legs, and rests the backs of their knees on their partner’s shoulders.

The High Pressure

The receiving partner lies on their back, legs bent, pulls their knees towards their chest, and places their feet on their partner’s chest. The penetrating partner, on top, presses against their partner’s feet in this position, so that both of their chests are compressed as they fuck.

The Half Pressure

Similar to the high pressure, but in this case the receiving partner bends only one knee towards their chest and places that foot on their partner’s chest, with the other leg left extended. The receiving partner may keep switching legs in this position to avoid discomfort.

Impalement

Lying on their back, the receiving partner places their right foot on their partner’s left shoulder, or on their head, keeping their left leg extended. As they fuck, the receiving partner swaps legs regularly.

The Crab

Lying on their back, the receiving partner bends their knees and pulls their legs back to their chest. This is like the high pressure, just without the pressure.

The Crossed Crab

Lying on their back, and having bent their knees and pulled their legs back to their chest, the receiving partner crosses one raised leg over the other at the calf.

The Lotus

The receiving partner sits on their lover’s lap with their legs crossed, similar to the yoga position.

The Revolution

The penetrating partner enters their lover from behind then spins them around to face them, without their cock falling out. This requires some practice and is largely for effect.

Standing Sex

Many positions that work lying down can be performed standing up or leaning against a wall.

Doggy Style

The receiving partner gets down on all fours – on their hands and knees – and the penetrating partner takes them from behind, kneeling, squatting, standing or whatever other position might suggest itself, based on observation of wild animals.

Hanging Sex

The penetrating partner leans their back against a wall with their hands clasped in front of them. The receiving partner hangs from their lover’s neck, sits on their clasped hands, and places their feet against the wall so that they can push back and forth as they fuck.

Group Sex

If you’re having sex with more than one person at the same time, one of you should be kissing, scratching, slapping or biting the receiving partner while the other is fucking or going down on them.

Anal Sex

Some people like to fuck each other in the ass.

Oral Sex

This gets its own section here.

Perfect union lies
At a delicate crossing
Of the real, the personal,
And the imaginary.

The birds and the bees
Are for noobs and novices.
If you wanna impress
You gotta emulate the rest!
