File No. 6: Top 10 Sex Positions We’re Most Thankful For

24 Nov

With America on the cusp of their biggest eating holiday of the year, we take a moment to reflect on some things we are truly thankful for. Of course, sex is always on the brain here at The Flirt Files HQ. To demonstrate that, we give you, the top 10 sexual positions we are the most thankful for:

10. Inverted Jockey

The Inverted Jockey position is a variation on the Cowboy with the giver leaning forward over the receiver. It is not a naturally occurring position, as the receiver has their legs closed while the giver sits astride their thighs. To get into the position, the receiver simply lies down on their back while their partner sits atop of them and leans forward on their arms. Although inserting can be a little difficult at first for the giver, the tightness of the opening can be rewarding for shallow penetration.

9. Inverted Missionary

The Inverted Missionary position is exactly what it sounds like, the Missionary position with the receiver on top and the giver underneath. Getting into the position is very easy; the giver just lies back on the bed and has the receiver lay on top of them. Variations in the positioning of the receiver’s upper body can also allow for kissing the body – shoulders, breasts or neck, so feel free to move around and experiment.

8. The Viennese Oyster

In the Viennese Oyster position the receiver lays on their back with their lower back and legs raised all the way up so that their ankles are crossed behind their own head. The exact end position will depend on the flexibility of the receiver. This position totally exposes the groin area to the giving partner who lays atop the receiver to perform. The giver moves up and down on the receiver to create friction. The giver needs to use their hands to support their own body weight so as not to crush the receiver.

This position requires considerable flexibility on the part of the receiver and it cannot be (fully) achieved by most, but it is wonderfully “naughty” due to the feeling of being totally exposed. Those less flexible might try getting into the position, but stop at the point where the position starts to become uncomfortable. The giver can also help those less flexible by using their hands to support the receiver’s thighs at mid-point.

7. Scissors

The Scissors position differs from the Intersextion position because all four legs are inter-crossed or scissored. This allows for a unique angle for penetration, but it comes at the partial expense of comfort. Many people don’t like this position because they find it awkward to position their legs without causing one of the partner’s legs irritation or pain, but it does have a solid following amongst those who can find the sweet spot.

6. The Upside Down Position

Stand facing each other. You jump up and wrap your legs around his waist and your arms around his neck. Let him penetrate; then, very slowly and carefully, let go so your body falls backward into a handstand position facing away from him. Your palms are now on the floor, and he supports you by holding your waist and bottom. Yes, you do need to be flexible, but it’s actually not as difficult as it sounds. (And you’ve got to admit, it looks damn impressive!)

Why you’ll love it:

It’s called inversion: his taking you head-down. Because the blood literally rushes to your head, it builds pressure in the veins of your face and neck, producing startling sensations that lead to an orgasm. Oh, and it’s great for improving your balance and giving your abs a workout. It sure beats the gym!

5. Victory

The Victory is basically the Missionary position but with the receiver’s legs extended out straight and forming a v-shape toward the ceiling. To get into the position, the receiver simply lies down on their back while their partner lies face-down on top of them. The receiver then extends the legs as shown.

4. The Butterfly

The Butterfly position is at the head of the butterfly family. Its great for the edge of the bed, couch, or just about any edge for that matter! To get into this position, the receiver lays back on just about any edge big enough and plants their feet on the floor, while the penetrating partner stands or kneels between their legs.

This position is very comfortable for both partners, though a pillow under the knees could be useful for a kneeling penetrator.

3. The Slide Position

He kneels on a hard surface in a praying position, keeping his back straight. You lie in front of him with your genitals facing his direction. He then lifts your legs up to his shoulders, so your weight is supported on your shoulders. Shifting his erection downward, he penetrates you. He holds you in position by wrapping his arms around your upper thighs.

Why you’ll love it:

The Slide is successful because it’s a position in which he can penetrate you shallowly. How terribly tactful is Mother Nature? — all of the vagina’s nerve endings are located within an inch or so of its entrance. The reason the technique works: He is able to focus on your supersensitive nerve endings with what also happens to be his most sensitive part — the head of his penis.

2. Elevated Missionary

You’ll never see missionary position the same way again. “While on your back, put a pillow under your butt, lift your hips, and bring your legs up and back toward your shoulders, as though you’re folding in half,” says Solot. This move allows him better ease of thrusting and deeper penetration — a perk for both of you. Plus, it can stimulate your G-spot. But consider this a warm-up — you’re getting the zone primed for a more intense orgasm. Once your G-spot feels sufficiently stroked, put your legs down and have him get into coital-alignment-technique (CAT) position. “He’s on top, but he lifts his pelvic bone upward, aligning it with your clitoris,” says sex therapist Gloria Brame, PhD. “Then he rocks against the area until you peak.” “The legs-up position is a slow burn that brings you to the brink and increases sensitivity. Then the addition of clitoral rubbing takes you over the edge in a bigger way than if you had done CAT alone,” adds Brame.

1. Doggy Style

The most traditional version of the Doggy Style position is straightforward; the receiver on all fours with their partner holding on to the receiver’s bottom or sides. Although Doggy Style is a huge hit with just about every guy, some women need time to open up to it due to the lack of face-to-face contact. That being said, once they do, they usually become big fans of it as well.

There are many direct variations of Doggy Style, some of the more common are:

  • Both partner’s standing
  • Lowering the receiver’s chest so that it is resting on the couch or bed
  • The receiver’s chest on the bed, but their knees on the floor
