"Kneeling Booty Pop"
This position involves the woman getting on her hands and knees on the edge of the couch or bed. He stands behind like in the "Booty Pop."
Cosmopolitan says this is an ideal move for any couples that want to incorporate "spanking." However, it is important to "discuss limits and safe-words prior to diving in, so you can focus on the pain/pleasure dynamic while you’re in the moment."
The "Spoons" position involves the couple lying down with the woman in front and her partner directly behind. This configuration is worth trying for couples interested in trying anal.
For newbies and veterans alike, this spooning position is great because it allows you the space to relax and ease into it. Plus, no eye-contact!prevnext

"The Mouth Off"
This position is a variation on the standard "sixty-nine" maneuver.
