The Kama Sutra is perhaps the world’s oldest and most famous sex manual. Written in India around 400 BC, there’s a reason why this book has stood the test of time. After all, Karma Sutra literally translates to ‘treatise on pleasure.’ This book has over 100 sexual positions to spice up your bedroom and if you’re struggling to reach that ‘O’ moment, you’ll be happy to know many of these positions will help you get there. To make it even easier, we’ve picked out the top ten.

10. The pretzel dip

Imagine a human pretzel, it no doubt conjures up images of a tangle of legs. But, the pretzel position is actually surprisingly easy to get into. All you need to do is lie on your right side while your partner approaches straight on. Get your partner to straddle you with your right leg in the air or wrapped around their hips.

This position offers optimum space for nipple stimulation and to spice it up even further, get your partner to stimulate the clitoris until you climax

9. The amazon

The amazon is a sex position that sparks female empowerment. To get into this position get your partner to lie on their back with their knees pulled up to their chest like a ball and push their penis back between their legs so that it’s underneath them. Then, squat over them to straddle them.

8. The hero

The hero position is optimum for g-spot stimulation. Just lie on your back with your legs in the air and get your partner to kneel down and take you while pushing your legs back.

This position is also perfect if you’re into BDSM as your ankles can be tied together or to the bedpost to make things a little easier.

7. Spooning

Spooning sex is a classic but a goodie. Essentially it’s just like spooning, but with your partner penetrating you from behind. Then, you’re free to grind on them as you please. This position leaves your partners arm free to provide extra stimulation to the nipples or clitoris, or you can also use your own hands to ensure all erogenous zones are covered. Even better, spooning sex is perfect for introducing vibrating sex toys like clitoral stimulators.

6. The star

To get into the star sex position, lie flat on your back with one leg bent and one outstretched. Then, get your partner to penetrate you with the opposite leg bent to create a star shape. This position is perfect for deep g-spot penetration.

5. The magic mountain

The magic mountain position is not only great for heterosexual sex but also lends itself well to female on female sex where participants can use their hands or toys to stimulate each other. To get into the magic mountain, get your partner to sit down with their legs bent and leaning back on their hands. Then you do the same with your legs over the top of theirs. This position is again great for grinding over thrusting.

4. The chairman

To get into the chairman position, have your partner sit on the edge of the bed or on a chair while you sit on top facing away from them.

The chairman is another position that is much better with a grinding movement, but thrusting and bouncing are still available options here. The chairman also leaves your chest, clitoris and both you and your partner’s hands available for exploration.

3. Reverse cowgirl

The reverse cowgirl is a spicy take on a classic sex position. Instead of a regular cowgirl, turn around and face away from your partner. You can take reverse cowgirl while sitting upright or even lying forwards or backwards. To further control the depth of penetration, place a pillow under each knee.

2. Lotus

Also called padmasana or om, this position is perfect for ramping up the intimacy. To get into the lotus position, let your partner sit down cross-legged and then lower yourself on top of them with your legs wrapped around them. Lotus allows for partners to wrap their arms around each other and you can even rub up against them if penetration isn’t your thing.

1. Stand and deliver

If you’re feeling a little risky then the stand and deliver position will hit the spot. Just have both you and your partner stand up and then bend over at the waist while they enter you from behind. Stand and deliver is great for shallow penetration but you can take it to the knees for a deeper experience.

If you’re worried about falling over when things get hot and heavy, try leaning on a chair or table for extra support.
