Intimate sex positions
With some fun under the sheets, you can easily reignite the intimacy between you and your partner. So, if you’re thinking doggy style is intimate, then keep on reading.
#1 Missionary position. Don’t yawn! Missionary position is pretty intimate even though you probably think otherwise. Sure, you probably lost your virginity in this position, but stop for a second and think about it. The man’s on top of the female, face-to-face with eye contact. It’s romantic.
For the female, she’s able to use her hands and explore her partner’s body. I know missionary is known as some standard position since the female doesn’t have to do much, but, try lifting your legs on his shoulders or bringing your knees to your chest. That exposes the clitoris and gives it direct contact with his penis. [Read: Who’s on top? 8 ways to make missionary magical]
#2 Woman on top. While similar to the cowgirl position, there’s less distance between you and your partner. Cowgirl has the man laying down with the woman riding him. But, with woman-on-top, you have the man sitting up, with your legs wrapped around his torso.
This gives you face-to-face contact and allows you to passionately kiss, grab, and bite at the same time. This position is best when he’s sitting on a chair, couch, or at the edge of the bed. While riding him, he can play with your nipples which is known to release oxytocin, the bonding hormone. [Read: How to ride a man and look really sexy doing it]
#3 Spooning. Everybody loves a good ol’ spoonin’. Well, this intimate sex position is basically the same position as when you would sleep. However, you know, you’re naked and having sex—a slight difference. With your back facing him, you’re actually not sharing any eye contact.
But the feeling of being cradled in a man’s arms intensifies the connectedness between you two. Also, this is considered one of the best sex positions for the female orgasm—you’re welcome ladies. [Read: How to spoon right: 11 tips to make spooning more intimate]
#4 The pretzel. The pretzel isn’t as complicated as it sounds. Basically, the male is kneeling and the female is lying on her left side with her right leg wrapped around the right side of his waist. This is great because he gets to watch your face and you get to watch his body move. Slow this position down so you both feel the penis go in and out. It’s an amazing position.
#5 Woman on the stomach. Okay, you’re probably thinking this position isn’t personal since the woman is facing the pillow. You’re highly mistaken.
For this intimate sex position, the female needs to lie face down on the bed with legs spread slightly apart. Then, the man has to slowly enter from behind while the female crosses her ankles, creating a tighter squeeze.
If you don’t feel anything happening with your clitoris, the female or the male can manually stimulate it. There’s something great about this position because the guy can get down low right beside your face. I mean, it’s sex. You’re sweaty, he’s sweaty, your faces, and touching each other, you can hear him breathe. Mama mia. [Read: 30 days sex challenge – 30 sex positions for 30 days]
#6 The suspender. If your man has been hitting the gym, then you can certainly test him out with this position. With the male standing with his back up against the wall, the female wraps her legs around his waist and bounces up and down.
Now, the guy needs to use his arms to hold onto her legs for support, or else she’s going flying or just hit the floor. It’s a little different than the traditional bed, and you’re also in a face-to-face position. [Read: Sexual wish list: 16 naughty deeds to help build your list]
#7 Magic Mountain. This isn’t a Disneyland ride. Although, it sure looks like one.
The male sits with his legs bent and leaning back on his hands or forearms, and the female is doing the same. Both in this position, they inch closer and closer together until they connect.
When you’re in the moment, the last thing you want to do is wait to have someone inside you. You want it now. But, if you can last, it’s a beautiful moment. You’re staring at each other and the increased sexual tension continues to build. Plus, for women, because his pelvis will be grinding against your clitoris, you’ll get extra stimulation.

#8 The pinball wizard. If you’ve been doing yoga or Pilates, this position will come easily to you. If not, then start stretching. For the pinball wizard, the female has to get into a partial bridge position, with her hips in the air.
The male will be in a kneeling position, holding the hips and entering into the female. For females, this feels great because he can easily stimulate your clitoris and massage it. If you have back problems, though, I recommend you try something else. [Read: From “om” to “o”: Best possible positions for yoga sex]
#9 Tub fun. To become intimate doesn’t necessarily mean you need to have penetration. Don’t frown. It can still be a lot of fun. If you have a bathtub, then turn that water on and fill it up.
Get you and your partner into the tub, relax your feet over the edge of the tub and start touching yourself in front of your partner. Without a doubt, that will excite them and they’ll start touching themselves as well. With you staring at your partner and them staring back at you, I would say that’s pretty intimate.

#10 Solo belly down. If you happen to be alone, why not have an intimate moment with yourself? You don’t always have to be with someone to experience intimacy.
Lie down on your stomach and with your hands between your legs, slowly grind against them. Rub your legs together. Move your hips up and down as if there was a man on top of you. This will stimulate your clitoris and trust me, you want it stimulated.
