The 7 Best Sex Positions for Quick Orgasm

Feeling a little stuck in your current sex routine, or just want to explore some new sensations? This list of the best sex positions for women includes everything from sex positions for clitoral stimulation and the best positions for using a vibrator to the anal sex positions for every level and the sex positions for two female partners.

Missionary

Don’t write this off as basic: Missionary might just be one of the best sex positions for women to have an orgasm. «Missionary is classic for a reason,» says Finn of the tried-and-true position. «General contact is really nice and deep, and you can talk, kiss, bite, and make eye contact.» To get that clitoral stimulation, though, the person on the bottom should grind their pelvis against their partner. «That will make the position feel even better,» she says.

Edge of the Bed

Edge of the Bed

For deep penetration and clitoral play, try this fun sex position. Lie on your back, hips at the edge of the bed, and have your partner stand and enter you from under your legs. «With any penetrative sex positions where you’re aiming for clit stimulation, it’s helpful to make enough room for a hand or toy to stimulate the clit directly,» says Kate Kenfield, a sex educator at O.School. «Any position that has the receptive partner on the edge of the bed with the penetrative partner standing up is great for this.» Want to add a toy? She recommends the We-Vibe Tango or the Je Joue MiMi.

Yab Yum

Yab Yum

If you’ve ever seen the cover of a tantric sex book or workshop brochure, this position may look familiar. It’s considered the ultimate tantric sex position, according to Queen. «Yab Yum entails a seriously intimate, connection-boosting configuration.» Basically, it’s a tantra-fied version of the already-intimate lotus position.

Have the penetrating partner sit cross-legged on the bed (or couch, or floor) and the receiver straddle their partner’s lap facing towards, legs wrapped around their partners lower back. «As your partner penetrates you and you’re embracing each other, add tantra practices like eye-gazing and in-sync breathing,» says Queen. From here, rock back and forth together for deep penetration. If the person on top has a vulva, they can tilt their pelvis up for extra G-spot love.

BTW: The penetration can happen anally too. It’s a great way to hit your A-spot if you’re on top (a sensitive area of tissue at the ends of the vaginal canal, between the cervix and the bladder, that can be indirectly stimulated through anal sex). And it’s a great way to hit a guy’s P-spot if he’s on top (and you’re using a strap-on). Just keep in mind that anal sex can be painful if the body isn’t properly prepped with foreplay and lube.

Doggy Style

Doggy Style

Just like it sounds, doggy style is where you get on all fours, leaning on your hands or forearms, and your partner enters you from behind. «Doggy style gives a tighter fit than facing positions, and it’s great for G-spot stimulation,» says Finn. Make one small tweak to make this one of the best sex positions for women for orgasming too: «Because your partner is resting against your body, it could potentially free up one or both hands so they could stimulate your clit while holding your body close,» says Finn. Or, balance on one arm so you can free up a hand of your own. (Hello, core workout!)

Cowgirl

Cowgirl

«If you’re looking to have clitoral stimulation during sex without a toy or without having to get hands involved, cowgirl is the best way to do it,» says Finn. In this position, you’re kneeling and straddling your partner, facing them.

To make it one of the best sex positions for orgasm, add lube: «With the addition of lube, this position is really good for grinding your pelvis against your partner for clit stimulation,» says Finn, since, otherwise, skin that isn’t super hydrated can make friction unpleasant. Also try leaning back and holding on to your partner’s legs, or leaning forward to hold on to their shoulders. How far forward or back you lean will change the angle and the different spots you might hit to reach that clit orgasm.

Tilted Missionary

There’s a reason this tried-and-true position is a fave in long-term relationships: it’s the ultimate connection-booster. Before you get into it, start with in-sync breath work (breathing at the same time as your partner) or eye gazing (looking into each other’s eyes), suggests Martin. «Two minutes is a good amount of time for beginners.» Work your way up to five or ten minutes.

After that, go ahead and add penetration. To deepen penetration or make accessing the G-spot easier, add a sex pillow or ramp (like Dame’s Pillo), or have the receiving partner place their legs over the shoulders of the penetrating partner, says international tantra teacher Sofia Sundari, founder of the Tantra Mystery School and the Priestess School.

You can use this tantric sex position to stimulate your cervix as well, says Sundari. This will depend on the size of the penetrator and where the receiving partner is in their menstrual cycle (because the cervix drops lower when you’re menstruating), she explains. «Cervical stimulation may produce cervical orgasm and these orgasms produce profound states of consciousness, but the sensation can also be really intense.» That’s why she says a good idea to go there only when the receiver feels highly aroused and open to communicate if it feels like too much. In that instance, spend some time kissing without penetration, and then return to standard missionary.

Lazy Dog

«The lazy dog is like doggy style, but both partners are flat against the bed,» says Kenfield. «It’s great for when both partners are feeling turned on but have less energy. If the receptive partner is into vibration on their clit, I highly recommend the We Vibe Sync,» she adds. (PS: These Are the Best Vibrators for Women)
