Ready to take things to the next level in the bedroom? You may scoff at missionary as being the most square form of straight sex, but even the slightest adjustment can make it feel like a whole new position.
The good thing about missionary is that it's the most basic position — meaning it's easily modified. You don't have to endure the same old thrusting routine you and your partner have been rehearsing for years. With some hot new knowledge and a little conversation with your partner, you'll have all kinds of missionary variations at your fingertips, meaning guy-on-top sex will never be the same again.
But where to turn for these sexy new techniques and positions? Why, none other than the Kama Sutra, of course. The ancient Hindu text mainly unpacks theories and philosophies on love, and as popularized by Western culture, also contains over 100 sex positions — complete with graphic instructions.
What better way to enhance your sex life than by turning to the original sex manual? Take a page out of the Kama Sutra to transform your semi-satisfying missionary sex into out-of-this-world missionary sex.
Whether you're adding props like pillows or reading up on the following positions, it can never hurt to take responsibility for your sexual pleasure.
It's pretty common for guys to aim for the front wall of your vagina during missionary. Let him know this time to aim for the back side of your vagina instead; it's a whole new ball game. He should thrust his penis in a downward direction (rather than upward) and keep his thrusting short and deep (rather than plunging deeply).
This technique is best for when you and your guy are ready for some hot and heavy, animalistic, let's-get-it-on sex. Maybe he set the mood when he got a little handsy during the car ride home from date night, or you're just loving the way he looks in a suit. Whatever gets your juices flowing, this tried and true technique will be there to satisfy your lustful yearnings.
Assume your typical missionary position. As he thrusts, have him pull out completely and then enter again with a hard, fast stroke. Put it on repeat for a while and tell me you don't want to go again. The teasing combined with the lusty thrusting will put a whole new primitive spin on missionary.
Don't mind the strange wording of this technique; you'll be thanking us later. Whichever way or rhythm your guy is thrusting inside you, have him aim in a different direction. Have him aim his penis to his left or right, putting continuous pressure on the side of your vagina. Explore each side for a while before deciding which area of your vagina is the most sensitive, then once you find that spot, have him continue riiight there.
Not one to speak up in the bedroom? Learning to take control and give a few commands during sex is one of the most empowering things you can do for yourself. Who knows? Maybe you've been missing out on parts (and sensations) of sex you didn't even know were there.
Not as scary as it sounds. This technique is best for those nights when you've got the lights turned low, some sensual tunes playing softly, and scented candles burning into themselves. The reason being: You're gonna need to take this one slow and easy.
Lie on your back as usual, but keep your hips low. Have him climb on top but a little higher than usual, with his shoulders aligned with your head. As he (slowly) thrusts in and out, his penis will slip back and forth against your clitoris — allowing for some uncommon clitoral contact during missionary. The extra stimulation might be just what you needed to take you to your happy place.
Yes, like butter. If the other techniques on this list are looking a little too bold or adventurous, churning might be the best way to experiment. During missionary, grasp his penis with your hand and gently move it in circles inside your vagina. That way, you can explore all the different hot spots inside your vagina and have direct control over where his penis is touching.
Sound like too much work for missionary? Once he's familiar with your favorite spots, why not relax and let him take over? Communication is key during sex; your partner wants to make you feel as good as possible, so letting him know what you like is a huge step in making missionary even hotter.
Again, don't let the weird names distract you from what's coming (pun intended). This technique will be your go-to move whenever you're in the mood to be teased — especially if you're one of the women whose first inch or so of her vagina is the most sensitive.
Rather than your guy thrusting deeply into you, have him do quick, shallow, in-and-out strokes without ever removing his penis. It might take some control on his part, but we're thinking you can come up with some sort of way to repay him once you see stars with this technique.
Moving right along to full-on Kama Sutra positions, rather than techniques. These may vary slightly from typical missionary sex, but trust us when we say the payoff is worth the risk.
For the Star, lie on your back as usual, but with one leg bent and the other outstretched on the bed. Have your guy kneel on top in the same manner. His outstretched leg should lie underneath your bent leg, and his bent leg should wrap around your flat, outstretched leg — forming a star.
This position allows for deep, penetrable sex, and unlike most missionary positions, even a little clitoris action. Have him go for your G-spot while you reach down and stimulate your clitoris, leaving him able to play with your breasts or pull on your hair. No erotic zone left untouched!
Ready to get wild and crazy? This move might encompass the ideas you already have about the Kama Sutra, in that it's super fun and sexy.
Lie on your back like with normal missionary, but put your foot on his shoulder. Take it off and put your other foot on his other shoulder, like some sort of mid-coital Chorus Line dancer. Depending on how tall your guy is, he may have to kneel in order for this one to work. Incorporate some of those techniques we talked about earlier for a full-on sexy experience.
