For the Daring and Bold: 4 Crazy Sex Positions You’ll Want to Try Tonight

Last updated:

Before we dive in, let’s all agree that the term ‘crazy’ is relative? When someone talks about having a “crazy weekend” it’s often met with positive praise. But when one calls another “crazy” it’s a negative thing. 

So when we say we’re going to be talking about 4 crazy sex positions, don’t be too intimidated! They’re not over-the-top, yoga-like Kama Sutra-inspired sex positions. In fact, they’re positions that nearly anyone can take for a spin with their lover(s).

4 Crazy Sex Positions

While some of these positions are more intense than others, we say: variety is the spice of life! And just for reference: using the word “crazy” in this context, is definitely a good thing!

1. X Marks the Spot

The X Marks the Spot is kind of like an upgraded missionary position… and possibly even more rewarding. 

How to do the X Marks the Spot sex position:

  • One partner lays on their back with their head at the top of the bed
  • The other partner will get on top, laying across the bed with their head by one side of the bed and their feet at the other
  • One or both partners will then thrust as normal 
  • In this way, it’ll look like an “X” when viewed from above

This position is a fun one as it provides similar stimulation as missionary, but note that vulva owners may not get to enjoy much clitoral stimulation. Opt for a clitoral sex toy if you fancy, to create double the amount of bliss. 

Additionally, the partner on the bottom could grab their lover’s butt or legs to add deeper penetration, and the partner on top could grab onto their lover’s arm for deeper thrusts.

The drawback of this position is that it doesn’t really aid in much G-spot stimulation, and it doesn’t offer eye contact.

2. Brute

The Brute sex position gives the one on top more of a dominant role. It’s one that’s similar to the Amazon sex position, but in reverse.

How to do the Brute sex position:

  • One partner will be on their back with their knees to their chest and stomach
  • The other partner will get on their knees, back themselves up towards their partner with their back to their partner’s front
  • Both partners will be straddling one another 
  • To get some thrusting action going, the partner on top will move up and down

Tip: This position could be easier for the partner on top if they put their feet under their lover’s armpits. This will help them to push upwards (seeing as there is quite a bit of exercise involved for the one on top).

The thing about the Brute sex position is that it doesn’t offer deep penetration, which some may love and others may not. 

The drawback of this sex position is that it’s a workout for the partner on top. They may press too hard on the bottom partner’s thighs with each thrust, but if the bottom partner gently pushes them back upwards with their thighs, this may make it more comfortable. 

Another way to make this crazy sex position more comfortable would be for the partner on top to stay fairly stationary and to use their hips to thrust back and forth instead of thrusting up and down.

3. The Downward Stroke

For those who crave G-spot stimulation, the Downward Stroke sex position is a real winner. It does require the partner on top to have a fair amount of strength, but it’s definitely worth it.

How to do The Downward Stroke sex position:

  • One partner lays on their back on the edge of their bed or sofa with their legs raised in the air pointing towards the ceiling
  • The other partner will grab their lover’s legs and pull them towards them in such a way that they can enter you whilst they’re standing almost straight
  • The standing partner will lift their lover up and towards them so that their waist is off the bed and only their upper back, shoulders, and head are resting on the bed

This sex positon, while slightly taxing, can be very intimate as it allows for eye contact. And with the one giving penetration thrusting in and out as opposed to up and down, they’ll be able to stimulate the upper wall of the vagina, which is utterly erotic. This sex position is also great to do during anal sex.

The drawback of this crazy sex position is that, if the one on top can’t get the angle right, it could feel uncomfortable. To remedy this would be for them to hold onto their lover’s thighs in such a way that it feels good for both partners.

4. The Helicopter

Ready for the ride of your life? The Helicopter sex position can be a whirlwind of an adventure, and offers vulva owners some delicious G-spot stimulation. 

But before you go ahead with it, penis owners will need to make sure their penis is flexible enough. To test it out, have them stand up straight and point their erection downwards towards the ground. If they can do this comfortably, then you can go forth with glee.

How to do The Helicopter sex position:

  • Have one partner lay down on a soft surface on their stomach with their legs straight and open wide
  • The partner on top will also lay down on their stomach, facing the opposite direction, legs straight and open (in this way, both partners will have their bottoms facing each other’s)
  • The one on top will then reverse back until their thighs are positioned over the bottom partner’s thighs, which will allow for penetration
  • For the partner on the bottom, be sure to stay still as the one on top gains momentum and finds their best level of comfort. Once both lovers are comfortable, the bottom partner could gyrate their hips but don’t bother thrusting as it will most likely cause them to slip out

The drawback of this crazy sex position is that it doesn’t offer deep penetration. It’s also a position that requires a lot of penile strength…without that, the penis owner could strain their suspensory ligaments in their penis. Go slow, and find your best fit before attempting to get hot and heavy.

Ready to go on a new kind of sexual adventure? Whatever you’re planning on trying, make sure that you’re safe and always listen to your body. If you feel any discomfort, we suggest moving onto a different position that makes you feel royally euphoric.
