At the risk of being tagged a feminist, I am yet again coming for my fellow women folks. In my years of research, I have come across men who believe sex was meant just for procreation alone and therefore, all a man has to do is to get a hard on, climb on his wife and perform his duty.

These set of men do not think that apart from child bearing, sex was meant to be enjoyed by both parties engaged in it. As much as a man wants to enjoy sex, a woman should also be made to enjoy it because, let us be truthful here, women love sex.

In fact, some women think about it just as often, if not more, then their male counterparts. They fantasise constantly and at great length. These hot little fantasies can cover a broad spectrum of kink, but almost always involve one of the five most common vaginal and anal sex positions women enjoy.

This is due to a number of reasons, the most significant being that they create a perfect balance between level of difficulty and maximum pleasure. In other words, these sex positions women enjoy result in loads of pleasure for the minimal level of effort required to pull them off.

The simple fact men should know is that when we’re getting down and dirty, certain sex positions tend to get women more wet than others.

Try these:

Lap dance

Most women love being on top for one simple reason: it makes them feel like they're in charge, and power is always a heady aphrodisiac. Being on top is not limited to one style, however.

If you’re old-school, lie on your back and have her straddle your waist before lowering herself onto you; don’t forget to lend her some support by holding her hips while she rides you.

If your woman doesn’t enjoy this style, it’s likely for one of two reasons: she may feel overexposed during the act, or her legs might be a bit too short to pull it off comfortably. The easy fix for this dilemma? Move to the sofa. Sit yourself down, lean back and pull her astride you.


This is definitely one of the sex positions women enjoy because it allows her to brace herself against the back of the couch, giving her excellent leverage to ride you to orgasm. She can even brace herself with one hand, leaving the other free to play with her clit.

Sex position savvy: It may be tempting to just sit back and enjoy the scenery, but if you’d like to really rock her world, tease her breasts and nipples with your tongue and trace the curve of her waist with your fingers; these moves will magnify her pleasure.

The comfort zone

More commonly known as the missionary position, the comfort zone is not to be overlooked; nor should any man ignore its tremendous potential for scorching hot sex. Yes, it can also be boring if only you refuse to add spice to it or you are lacking passion and creativity.

The comfort zone is one of the top sex positions women enjoy, and for good reason too: the permutations for pleasure are virtually endless, and none of them involve discomfort or the skills of a gymnast.

Take charge: Lay her down on the bed, spread her legs apart by sliding your knee between her thighs, place her wrists above her head and show her what you’re made of. Women love displays of dominance in the bedroom, and this one can be either subtle or overt.


Sex position savvy: Take it to the next level by talking dirty to her. Bring your lips close to her ear and whisper what you’re going to do to her; let her know she’ll be screaming your name before it’s over.

Stand at 'erection'

This sexual position women enjoy is pretty self-evident in the title: your woman is going to sit on a surface (table, raised platform, etc), that stands level with your waist, and then you’re going to penetrate her as deeply as you possibly can.

The further her legs are spread apart, the better, and you can maximise this by drawing her legs around your waist. This will place her vagina directly against your groin, and will make deep thrusting incredibly easy for you, thereby increasing her odds of having a G-spot orgasm.

Where can you put this sexual position women enjoy to good use? Try the kitchen counter, the bathroom counter, the washing machine, the piano, the hood of your car - get as naughty as you like.


Sex position savvy: Some men come relatively quickly in this position, thanks to it’s deep-thrusting potential. Don’t be afraid to slow down and take a break to get yourself back under control. Use that time to stimulate her clitoris and bring her closer to the edge. When you start thrusting again, she’ll be just as ready as you are.

Spooning it

The spoon position makes for fabulous sex, and it’s really no wonder that it's on this list of sexual positions women enjoy. A woman loves the feel of a man’s chest against her back, she loves the feel of your arms wrapped around her and she loves the feel of being penetrated from behind.

She especially enjoys it in the spoon position, because it’s incredibly comfortable and still allows you to play with her breasts and clitoris, which, frankly, most women can never get enough of.

Slide behind your woman, pull her bottom backward against your groin, and slip her top leg over your hip, drawing it slightly backward as you do so. Having her thighs spread apart like this will make her feel deliciously naughty and she’ll probably arch her body to give you even further access.

This is a very comfortable sexual position women enjoy, and you can expect a great deal of moaning to ensue.

Sex position savvy: Take advantage of this position by reaching around and stimulating her clitoris, and don’t forget to talk dirty to her as you do; this is one of the best positions for pillow talk.


Stoop doggy dog

You may be surprised to see doggy style making the list, but it really is one of the sexual positions women enjoy. That said, the doggy style you see in the average porn movie isn’t really what we’re talking about here: we’re after something a bit more intimate and far more pleasurable.

Yes, women do like being bent forward on all fours and taken from behind, but they like it even more when you bend forward as well, sliding your fingers between her thighs and toying with her clit.

And women simply love it when you switch things up by pulling them into a kneeling position while you continue to thrust deeply. Women definitely enjoy doggy style, as long as they aren’t made to feel like objects.

Sex position savvy: While bending forward, gently nip your woman’s shoulders with your teeth; this area is very sensitive and most women enjoy being nibbled there, as it greatly intensifies the sexual pleasure.
