We’d like to say we were surprised with the results — but your go-to moves are our favorites, too. See what experts have to say about the top 10 best sex positions — and what makes them so hot for you and, especially for her.
You’re both barely moving, but you’re touching all of the right spots — and building up lots of sweat between your legs. The friction and glide are enough to set either of you off.
What makes it hot for her: “Women like the feeling of abandon that usually accompanies this position,” says sex therapist Vanessa Marin.
What makes it hot for him: “This is intimate for him because it allows him to penetrate deeper than most other positions and also lets him look at her body and fondle it. Men are turned on visually and this position allows for some serious visual stimulation,” says sexologist and author of Sex in South Beach, Dr. Sonjia.
You’re thrusting at her as hard as you can from behind while she lays down at a 90-degree angle. It’s very good for her, while you get to remain in control without having to really sit up at all. Win, win?
What makes it hot for her: “Women need to feel relaxed to experience optimal sexual pleasure and this is a great position for relaxing while coming,” says Dr. Sonjia. “In addition, he can go deep inside of her at a different angle than most other positions and touching a woman in an unusual angle makes the man “special” in her mind, which makes her feel closer to him.”

What makes it hot for him: “Many men find thrusting to be easier when they are laying on their sides. Some men last longer in this position because the penetration isn’t particularly intense. Men can also use the woman’s body for some additional leverage,” says Marin.
This position, that’s perfect in a chair, lets your girl straddle you and ride you, but remain chest-to-chest. It’s still raw, but it’s kind of sweet too.
What makes it hot for her: “This is one of the most intimate positions for both men and women. They can coordinate their breathing so it in synch with each other and few things are more intimate than that,” says Dr. Sonjia. “They can also look into each other’s eyes and kiss deeply during sex, which will inspire them to hug each other closer and feel as if they’re fused into each other.”
What makes it hot for him: “In this position, you have to focus more on grinding rather than thrusting, and the different stimulation can be an exciting change for both sexes,” says Marin. “It’s a great position for men to take a bit of a break and help prolong their orgasm. Or the clitoris can get stimulated by grinding up against the man’s skin.”
It’s the sex you have first thing in the morning or when you’re in the mood for something lazy — and yet successful — at night. She’s on her side, you’re around her and you both just move until you finish… and fall asleep (even if it’s just for 10 more minutes).
What makes it hot for her: “This is intimate for women because it makes her feel safe. Plus, she can simply push her rear against his thrust for a deeper connection,” says Dr. Sonjia.
What makes it hot for him: “Spooning is incredibly intimate. It’s the perfect cure for morning wood — just roll over, insert, feel connected and cum,” says Laurel House, dating coach and flirting expert. “He can’t go as deep inside of her, but they both like that he can use his hands to squeeze her breasts, play with her nipples and finger her clit, plus he can kiss her neck and talk really dirty to her while he takes her from behind.”
