There are a lot of solid reasons for bringing your sex session to new (vertical) heights.
First, it switches up your routine! You’ve probably mastered the tricks of oral sex and have girl-on-top down to a science, so it’s time to add a little next-level adventure to your sex life. Trying more physical standing sex positions is the perfect way to go.
It’s a stronger workout, too! Your core, pelvic floor, legs and arms have the opportunity to flex and stretch while you’re assuming your positions and thrusting. If you’re going to work up a sweat anyway, why not make it count as serious physical activity for the day?
Standing sex is also more athletic in nature than missionary-style moves, so training both of your bodies to work as a single, sexual unit can act as a workshop in physical and emotional connection with your partner.
And finally, it’s creative, cool and fun and it’ll lead to a blissful orgasm. Sold? Great, let’s get going.
Try these five positions with your partner, but be careful! As mentioned, they can require more flexibility and balance than most horizontal sex poses, so go slow before working your way up to a faster rhythm.
While ’Shower sex’ isn’t super specific, all the best shower-friendly positions are standing—mostly for logistics purposes, but it feels great, too.
When you’re both standing under the steamy water, the woman should press her front or back against the wall to create a chilly, oddly arousing sensation. The guy can then enter her, with her legs either close together (for a tighter feeling) or with one propped up on the edge of the tub for balance.
When you’re doing it in the water, be careful! It’s slippery and the last thing you need is a sexually-induced trip to the ER.
This standing pose is a more spontaneous, need-it-right-now kind of option. It feels pretty sneaky, too, which only amps up your adrenaline and your libido.
For this pose, you’ll need to find a tight space in your home so you can both balance yourselves. A door frame or small closet is perfect! Have him lean his back against one wall, with his legs more toward the middle of the space. She’ll do the same, then bring one leg over his shoulder (or resting on the surface wherever it’s comfortable).
This one takes some flexibility on her end, but the spontaneity of the act is a thrilling one, making those pre-sex stretches all worth it.
Reinvent doggie style and let her show off those yoga moves she’s learning in class!
For this position, the woman will bend at the waist to touch the floor, walking her hands and feet away from each other until well balanced. The man will enter her from behind, thrusting with circular hip movements.
This allows her to feel the penis hit a variety of her sensitive spots so you can search for what feels best. Plus, this position can be painful for a woman if it’s too fast or rough.
If you’ve always wondered what you look like during sex but making an amateur film isn’t your speed, this sexy standing pose is for you.
Head to the bathroom or bedroom and position yourselves directly in front of the mirror. The woman will stand upright facing the mirror, and the guy will be directly behind her. She can spread her legs slightly or lean over until you’re both in a comfortable position, but the trick is to keep your eyes on the ultra hot visual happening in front of you.
This position is perfect for couples who have a hip-height kitchen countertop or sturdy bar-top table. Cheers to doing it in a different room of the house!
For this style of sex, the woman sits on the edge of the countertop with her hips angled to her guy’s height. He stands in front facing her, then enters slowly. If you skip that last part, his hips could end up bruised and beaten from slamming into the counter. Start slow to find the angles that work best for your bodies!
This position is ideal for her g-spot stimulation as she can lean back (resting on her elbows as needed) to find the best angle for penetration. He can also get creative with hip movements and get a little handsy on her chest or clitoris for some extra sexy stimulation.
