Top 5 Standing Sex Positions

Sexual pleasure is not something that should be confined to the mattress. Sex shouldn’t be confined at all, and millions of pages in thousands of books have been devoted to finding new sex positions, in new locations, to cater to new sexual tastes and ever more experienced appetites. Some of these sexual positions require study, flexibility, imagination and patience. Others, though, are simple, fun and easy, and yet offer the same amount of pleasure as the more complicated positions (and don’t require you to be a yoga teacher).

Standing Sex Positions

So here, for your intellectual edification and erogenous enjoyment, are our Top 5 Standing Sex Positions!

5. The Necklace Of Venus

Necklace of Venus Sex PositionOnly he stands in the “Necklace” position, while she reclines backwards on a firm surface, raising her legs and wrapping her ankles around the back of his neck. She can alter the angle of penetration by propping herself up on her elbows.

This sex position is perfect for quick, passionate sexual encounters on a desk, a sink, the hood of a car or anywhere else flat and firm, because it requires very little undressing or planning.

Pros:

This position offers deep penetration, and because her bodyweight is as supported as she wants it to be, he can be more energetic and she can enjoy the sensations at any angle she chooses. Also, since this is a legs-closed position, the sensations will be more intense for both.

Cons:

The more vigorous the sex, the more endurance she will need in her upper arms and thighs. Still, it’s good for muscle toning.

4. The Plough

The Plough Sex PositionSimilar in principle to the Necklace Of Venus but very different in practice, this intimate sex position requires her to lie on her back on any waist-high surface and wrap her legs around the middle of his back.

This position encourages a slower pace than The Necklace, with lots of eye contact and deep, fulfilling penetration.

Pros:

A far more relaxing position for her with sexy views for him. Both partners can control the pace and intensity of sex, and the face to face perspective allows for romance, talking, laughing and kissing.

Cons:

If the surface she’s lying on is a little too low, he will have to crouch or bend and it will become uncomfortable for him relatively quickly.

3. The Hanging Garden

The Hanging Garden Sex PositionThis sex position requires no furniture and no props, and as such it can be performed anywhere, any time (within reason. And within the law).

Quite simply, the couple are face to face, he supports her under her buttocks, she wraps her legs around his waist and adds to the support by wrapping her hands or arms around his neck.

Pros:

It’s an energetic and bold position for passionate lovers, and when it’s used when you’re having sex outside, it’s beautiful. It’s also a great way for him to take control and show off a bit.

Cons:

It is quite hard work, and it definitely favors stronger guys and lighter girls. In addition, he’ll need to have pretty good balance.

2. The Wheelbarrow

The Wheelbarrow Sex PositionSure, it’s not a very sexy name for a sexual position, but it is a very sexy position. It’s also a very fun one that never fails to prompt laughter and silliness, so it’s perfect for experimental couples looking for something less serious from their sexlives.

She should start in a press-up position. He can then slip between her legs, take hold of her ankles or thighs, and lift her lower body off the floor. He holds her there and begins to penetrate while she supports her torso with her arms.

Pros:

Like we said, this is a fun position, and with a little practice it’s a pleasurable one too. Mostly though, it’s just for play, and it’s a good core strengthening exercise.

Cons:

It’s for reasonably strong couples, and it doesn’t really encourage very deep penetration.

1. The Frisk

The Frisk Sex PositionVery simple, very satisfying and a staple of any fulfilling sex life, this standing sexual position is called ‘the frisk’ because the her stance – hands against the wall, bending slightly forward, feet apart – is similar to a police body search.

It’s also great because both couples can be in control of the speed and intensity of the action.

Pros:

This sexual position is perfect for tight spaces, like showers and small rooms, and great if you’re in a rush. What’s more, this position will stimulate her G-spot like no other on this list, and it allows him to hold some hair and slap some backside to heat things up even further.

Cons:

It can become a little awkward if there’s a significant height difference between the couple, but it’s nothing that can’t be overcome with some experimentation.

So there we have it, five of the best standing sex positions that don’t require any gymnastic training whatsoever.

Have we missed one? What’s your favourite standing sexual position?
