The Best Sex Positions You've Never Heard Of

Is sex with your guy starting to feel a bit…bland? You may think you've tried it all when it comes to sex positions, but we're willing to bet we've got a few you haven't tried! Straight from Naughty Tricks and Sexy Tips: A couple's guide to uninhibited sexual pleasure, we bring you a list of lesser-known positions to keep even the most seasoned lovers busy!


I'll begin with the Coital Alignment Technique because its simplicity and effectiveness in helping a woman achieve an orgasm makes it a valuable addition to your repertoire. In this position, the woman lies on top-face to face-with her legs inside those of her lover. This squeezes the penis fairly tightly and so caution must be exercised. She then shimmies upwards an inch or two on his pelvis so that her clitoris and surrounding region will be rubbed by his pubic bone. The movements made in the CAT, either circular or as small thrusts (or both-be creative!), allow a woman to mimic the sensations she gives herself when masturbating. The CAT is ideal as a second or third position when both lovers are aroused and perhaps the man needs slowing down while she needs now to concentrate on the right stimulation to build to orgasm. It also allows the man to rest after he has been engaged in more vigorous thrusting in other positions.

Spicy Suggestion… Take your time and enjoy this slow sensuality as you both gaze into each other's eyes.

The Starfish

The lovers can now move into the Starfish. Here, the woman brings both her knees towards her chest and rests her feet at the sides of his chest or on tops of his shoulders. He holds her knees and can open them, yielding different sensations for both lovers. The Starfish is so named because she looks like a starfish against his kneeling posture. The woman needs to be flexible, and the man needs a reasonable level of fitness in order to take control of the thrusting because his partner remains stationary in such a pose. In this position, they can clasp hands or he can lean on his arms on the bed.

Spicy Suggestion … The Starfish is ideal for the man who likes to take control. He can thrill his lover by slowing his thrusting, deepening it, or varying the style from, say, straight thrusts to circular movements.
