    The adage, ‘The more the merrier’ holds true especially in the bedroom, because there are simply so many different ways to have sex! Getting naughty in bed does not have to follow a single path. Your body is capable of producing some pretty incredible orgasms through different sex positions. Why restrict yourself when you can go all out? Here are the 12 most common sex positions you must try with your partner to create intimacy, closeness and most importantly, unforgettable orgasms. Take it a up by a notch by including some sex toys too. You’ll be surprised to see what happens next! 

    If you’ve ever come across a copy of the Kamasutra at the back of a bookstore, you’ll be surprised to see the images of sex positions that crop up. It’s pretty incredible how innovative we can be in bed and how there’s so much scope to explore positions of pleasure with an intimate partner. There are simply so many different ways to have sex! How exciting is that? 

    Sex is supposed to be fun and exhilirating! It’s supposed to make you feel good about yourself and your relationships. Spicing it up with different sex positions is a great way to keep things interesting in the bedroom and have an orgasm! 

    Here are 12 most common sex positions to try with your partner:

    1. Missionary Style:

    The missionary sex position is probably the most common sex position to exist till date. While traditionally, it was used to describe a heterosexual couple where the woman lies on the botton and the man is on top with both facing each other. Today, however, this sex position has been widely adopted by homsexual couples as well as non binary couples as it is a very intimate position.  So, how does missionary style work? The partner on top is between the legs of the partner below and this allows the partner on top to have greater control over penetration. The person below can adjust his/her hips accordingly to enable greater thrust of motion. If you’re trying this type of sex style for the first time, you can also put a pillow under your hips for deeper penetration. Same sex couples can use harnesses to achieve penetration during missionary too. It is certainly one of the best sex positions for beginners to have an orgasm. At Love Depot, you can shop for pleasure toys too to further elevate your sexual experiences. 

    2. Spooning:

    While spooning is seen as an act of affection between couples, it can also be used as a really good intimate position. One of the best sex positions for beginners, spooning typically involves the two partners being very close to each other on their sides, with the partner in front not facing the partner behind. Here, penetration happens from behind and the process is much slower and relaxed as well. The advantage of this sex position is that, the partner with a penis will not get too tired too fast, and its also more relaxing for the partner with a vagina. In this position, the penis rubs against the G Spot, which makes it much more pleasurable for the woman! One of the most common sex positions, this type of sex style is a favourite among most women that helps them have an orgasm! 

    3. Cowgirl:

    If you’re a woman who loves to take control of your man, the cowgirl is one of the best ways to have sex with your partner. In this position, the man lies on his back facing upwards, while the woman sits on him facing him directly. In this position, the partner on top controls almost everything. You can gain greater control over pace of intercourse, depth, vigour of penetration as well as clitoral stimulation. This position is also great for men, because it can help them relax and stimulate the clitoris with their hands, while the woman sits on top. Here, the woman rides the penis back and forth, instead of in and out, which is how it is in other most common sex positions. For gay couples too, the same principle can be applied to experience sexual pleasure.  

    4. Doggy Style:

    There’s no doubt that you’ve heard of the infamous doggy style sex position before! In doggy style, a person bends over and crouches on all fours, usually with the elbows and knees touching the ground, and gets penetrated from the rear end. Usually in heterosexual relationships, the woman gets down on all fours and the man penetrates her vagina from behind while standing. Its also a great position for anal sex. Why so many people like doggy style, is that you can experience the deepest penetrations, that can come in contact with your G-Spot more easily than any other position. Some people also like doggy style, because it helps take away from the pressure of making sustained eye contact with their partner, while allowing them to have an orgasm more freely without inhibitions. One of the most common sex positions and best sex positions for beginners you absolutely must try! Throw in a pleasure toy or two and take things to the next level. 

    5. Reverse Cowgirl:

    One of the best ways to have sex, the reverse cowgirl is similar to the cowgirl position, except that in this sex position, the partner on top does not face the partner lying on his back. For example, among heterosexual couples, the girl penetrates the penis by being on top of the male partner, while facing away from her man. If you’re a woman who wants to gain complete control over your partner, there’s no better way than to stay on top! During reverse cowgirl, you can lead forward, and control the depth and intensity of penetration. It provides a different type of pleasure, as the grinding is more back and forth as compared to in and out penetration. Do try out this type of sex stye for some mind blowing orgasms! 

    6. LeapFrog position:
    One of the most common sex positions, the leap frog is a very interesting, intimate sex position you must try with your partner! It’s a modification of the doggy style position. To get into leapfrog, all you have to do is get on your fours as you would in doggy style, raise your hips and relax your hands and elbows on the bed. Allow your partner to enter you from behind, while providing easy accessibility to your clitoris as well. Your partner gets a greater thrust during penetration in this position, and he/she can also stimulate your clitoris easily that helps you have an orgasm. The leap frog position is more comfortable for the partner bending over, since it does not put too much pressure on the arms and knees. Same sex couples too can explore this position, through strap ons and other pleasure toys at Love Depot! 

    7. Reverse Scoop:

    If you’re feeling super intimate and are searching for different ways to have sex, you should definitely try the reverse scoop with your partner! This position allows you to be extremely close to your partner and at the same time, reap the full benefits of clitoral stimulation. This position involves both partners facing each other, where you and your partner can get into a comfortable grinding rhythm against your legs. You need to press your body against your partner, and maybe even intertwine your legs around them for comfortable, deep penetration. Since you’re on your sides, there is enough room for some clitoral stimulation with the hands too! Sounds like your type of sex style? Do try it out! 

    8. Seashell Position:

    As a vagina owner, if you’ve been regularly doing a lot of yoga, this intimate position is an absolute must for you! The seashell position is similar to the classic missionary position, except that here, you stretch your legs all the way back over your shoulders and spread out, while you lie on your back. Your partner then penetrates your missionary style. Here your vulva is very exposed, leaving a lot of room and intensity for clitoral stimulation. You can even use your hands to stimulate yourself while your partner penetrates you. What’s better, you can use a clitoral vibrator to go all the way to town! 

    9. The ‘Om’ position:

    One of the most calm and intimate sex positions you must try, is the Om position. As the name suggests, the word ‘Om’ exudes a sense of peace and tranquility. This position allows you to be slow and composed while experiencing an orgasm. How it works is that both partners are sitting upright, and hold each other very close, to the point where you actually stick your body against your partner’s. You then grind against your partner and slowly allow penetration to happen. You hug and hold onto each other for support, making the Om one of the most intimate sex positions ever to have an orgasm (or many). 

    10. Pretzel Dip:

    The pretzel dip is a very different and interesting and intimate position. Here one partner lies at the bottom, facing sideways, while the penetrating partner straddles the bottom leg, while keeping the body upright. The partner on top has to bend the top knee, in order to provide room for penetration. This position requires much more effort from the person on top, as the penetrating partner has to control the depth and intensity of the penetration. It is definitely one of the most common sex positions among couples around the world! 

    11. The Loveseat:

    One of the most common sex positions, the loveseat is another sexy position you must try! If you like being on top, this position should be on your list. Ask your partner to relax and lie back, and ask him to spread his legs slightly. Sit on him in such a way that your back is away from his face. Spread your legs forward, use your hands for support and start grinding your partner from top. Use your hips to move up and down his penis while you penetrate him. The Loveseat type of sex style also offers plenty of opportunities to use pleasure toys. Your partner can use a massager or butt toy to stimulate you from behind. 

    12. Standing up position:

    Well.. this literally means that you can stand up and have sex anytime, anywhere. The stand up position is not as easy as it sounds though. You and your partner require a considerable amount of stamina and strength to derive maximum pleasure from this position. All you need to do is find a comfortable wall, or pillar against which you can balance yourself and allow penetration to happen comfortably. Standing up provides you ample opportunity to explore several ways of having sex. However, just remember to stay careful! 

    These are 12 of the most common sex positions that couples engage in, to add variety and spice to the bedroom! 

    Sex has so much to offer from intimacy to fun to mindblowing orgasms. However, if you want to stay safe and comfortable, make sure you use a condom at all times. If you think that sex is painful or uncomfotable, use plenty of lubrication, that makes the process of penetration much easier. 

    To further spice up your sex life, add in some stimulating pleasure toys or sex toys to your bedroom routine. At Love Depot, choose from a wide range of dildos, vibrators, anal toys, foreplay products and more to create magic with your partner. Also, check out condoms and lubes in our store to have safe and sensual sexual experiences.

    Up Next : HOW DO YOU KNOW YOUR LUBRICANT IS SEX TOY FRIENDLY?

    Team Love Depot

    Added on: Nov 28, 2022

      They say a lube can really uplift a sexual experience by encouraging a sense of smoothness, confidence and consistency in maintaining a comfortable rhythm. Couples can use and should treat lubes as an add-on, especially when they intend to experiment with positions and toys. In fact, using them with sex toys - whether you’re alone or with your partner, is an essential step in making your sexual journey as smooth as possible - pun intended.

      The market has an array of lubricants available and while they all serve the same purpose, their ingredients can and do differ. The most popular bases for lubes are:

      • Water
      • Silicone
      • Oil
      • Natural

      WATER BASED LUBRICANT

      One of the most popular choices from the world of lubes is water-based lubricants. They have no taste, feel very much like natural lubrication and are less likely to irritate or inflame sensitive skin. They are safe to use during oral sex as well and are generally absorbed quickly by the skin unlike others. Added benefits include being completely compatible with condoms - as compared to most oil-based sex lubes or petroleum jellies that can corrode latex. They are also extremely compatible with sex toys and we highly recommend using it during your play time.

      SILICONE BASED LUBRICANT

      These lubricants do not contain water. While it may work for many, and not so much for others, your sexual journey is not set in stone and exploring your choices is a healthy way to understand what works best for your skin and body. These feel a little different on the skin as they don’t get absorbed quickly like water or oil as silicone-based lubes are hypoallergenic in nature. They can be safely used with condoms and don't require as many reapplications. The only major drawback is that it cannot be used with sex toys as they tend to solidify on them and may leave a sticky residue. 

      OIL BASED LUBRICANT

      If you want to avoid reapplying lube, we recommend you use an oil-based lubricant. But bear in mind that these lubes are not compatible with latex condoms. There’s a risk of the condom ripping or tearing during the act - making it unsafe and compromising on the protection factor (against STDs and unplanned pregnancies). Some other concerns that rise with using oil-based lubricants include staining of sheets and clothes. But they can be doubled up and used for massaging your partner, so go ahead and give it a try some time. We recommend you don’t use oil-based lubes with sex toys as it can hamper the quality of the silicone and damage it.

      NATURAL LUBRICANT

      There’s always going to be a time when going natural is a ‘natural’ choice for many. Especially for those who are concerned about certain ingredients that go into the manufactured products. In such cases, using coconut oil is a popular choice. But it comes with added risks like condom breakage and staining of sheets. Also, the coconut oil used for daily activities should be separate from the one being used for your sexual activities. Avoid using it with sex toys as they aren’t compatible.

      Now that we’ve given a detailed lowdown on the various types of lubes available, it’s up to you to make the right choice for you and/or your partner. Remember to stick to water-based lubricants if you intend to use them with sex toys. Find our entire collection of lubes here: https://lovedepot.com/lubes/

      Up Next : WHAT IS A VIBRATING RING AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

      Team Love Depot

      Added on: Nov 28, 2022

        Ever wondered if there’s something out there for you to experience firmer erections, better stamina delayed ejaculations without actually consuming any form of drug or medication? Well, say hello to Vibrating Rings aka Penis Rings aka Cock Rings.

        Multiple names, one fabulous goal. Penis rings - whether they vibrate or not - can pump up your sexual performance to a whole new level. Maybe it’s time you explored this side and became your own very own “lord of the rings”...Excuse the pun, but you know what we mean, right?

        Key Features: Most Vibrating Rings are designed for extra pleasure. They are discreet, waterproof, and noise-free. They are made with quality silicone and have zero allergens - making it safe on skin.

        How to use? All vibrating rings are designed keeping in mind the same end goal - ie. to deliver the ultimate form of pleasure. But here are a few essential steps to keep in mind while using them.

        Step 1: Before putting on a cock ring, apply and spread a decent amount of lube around the inner part. This will help it slide down a penis more easily. Note: Preferably use a water-based lube to avoid causing damage to the ring. Step 2: Make sure your well-lubricated penis is semi-erect while placing the ring over the head and sliding it down the shaft and onto the base. You can place it over a fully erect penis as well, depending on your girth or the size of the ring.  Step 3: Start off with a position you and your partner are comfortable with - like missionary or even doggy in some cases and then you can move on to experimenting once you’ve got the hang of it. Important note: Avoid keeping a cock ring on for more than 20-30 minutes. Although the blood flow restriction is usually safe in short bursts, it can eventually turn painful after prolonged use.

        Why use it? The joy of mutual stimulation can be ultra exciting so why not give your sex life a sensual upgrade? Vibrating Rings are available in various shapes and forms but are all designed to be adjustable to make sure it fits no matter what size. The beauty of using these with your partner is that it works towards achieving mutually explosive and almost synchronised orgasms. Yes, it’s possible.

        Some of these rings are ergonomically designed with a small appendage or extension, which is almost like a small bullet vibrator which which is meant for clitoral stimulation, which is key to achieving wholesome female orgasms.

        Some rings are designed to enhance a man’s performance by curbing the blood flow to the penis - leading to harder and long-lasting erections. A smarter choice to make over popping pills, what say?

        Some vibrating rings come with bluetooth technology. These rings can be controlled with  a few good buttons and  take your orgasms to the next level. Explore and play with a range of different vibration modes to level-up your sexual experience.

        Couples in long distance relationships can invest in a vibrating ring that can be controlled no matter where you are in the world, with the help of an app connected to your ring - making sure your intimacy game stays strong and exciting despite the distance!
