The Best Anal Sex Positions

A woman's bottom and legs

Anal sex is just like marmite, you will either love it or hate it, but until you try you’ll never know. When it comes to comfortable, pleasurable anal sex, the smallest of adjustments can make a huge difference. Many assume that the same positions that are good for vaginal sex will be good for anal too, but that isn’t always the case.
It’s impossible to over-emphasise the necessary components for safe and satisfying anal play; communication, relaxation and plenty of lube!

Spooning

This position is great for beginners – it is highly flexible, comfortable and accommodating to couples of varying sizes. The penetration is shallower here, and women tend to find that bending and stretching their upper legs away from their body helps open the external sphincter a little and keeps them feeling relaxed.

Lie behind your partner and hold her top leg up and gently enter her from behind. This position leaves your hands free to play and stimulate and tease other important parts. Take it slowly and gently rock your way to an orgasm.

Bend-Over Bliss

If you’re looking to try something a little kinky, look no further. This position has a classic, porn feel to it, which couples seem to love! Have the received stand, bent over, while using furniture (or a wall) for support. Being taken from behind while bending over is super sexy, and has a tendency to make the receiver weak at the knees…in a good way!

Girl on Top

If you have previous experience, but your partner is new to anal sex, this is the one for you. Having the received on top gives them full control of the speed and depth of penetration that works for her. You can either get your partner to straddle and face you, or face away, whichever works best for you. Facing each other gives the benefits of communication, kissing and getting to watch your partner moan and groan as she rocks on top.

However, when your partner faces away, the angle you will get from this position is guaranteed to bring you more pleasure than you would get from most positions. Try alternating between having her knees bent upwards and having her knees on the bed. When she’s more comfortable, get her to arch her back slightly – this will change the angle and will make this position even more enjoyable.

The Amazon

This position allows you to shake up your bedroom routine without being too ambitious. It involves no skills or toys, all you need is a chair and plenty of lube. Sit yourself on the chair and get your partner to sit on top facing towards you, so that she’s straddling you. This position allows your partner to stay in control and position you both for that orgasm. Just make sure that her feet can reach the ground, so that she can bounce up and down on you gently. This is an intimate position, so shower her with kisses, paying special attention to her neck, shoulder and breasts. For added fun; you can tug her hair gently or nibble her earlobes and neck.

Doggy Style

When it comes to classic anal positions, we automatically think of doggy style and taking a woman for behind. This is in fact, one of the hardest positions to master as the angle is a little trickier to achieve. Doggy style leaves you in control, so you need to be aware of how much your partner can take. We recommend that you try the other positions before moving on to this one, so that you are both familiar with the speed, rhythm and amount of penetration that you both like and don’t like.

When going from behind, get your partner to angle her pelvis slightly with a few pillows under her. This will make the angle of penetration easier to access, and will ultimately cause the least discomfort. However the angle of penetration will be deep so use plenty of lube and take it slow. The ones downside is that you cannot see your partner’s face while having sex. Introducing a mirror or two to the bedroom will solve this problem and will certainly spice things up a little!

As with any kind of sex, it’s all about finding ways to be creative and fun. All of the positions mentioned above can be altered by using props, toys, tongues and hands in different combinations- so it’s time to get adventurous. Just remember to communicate and take things slowly, it’s definitely worth the effort!
