5 Best Sex Positions For Short Girls

Being a short girl isn’t always easy. As someone who is 4’11 3/4”, I can attest to the fact that being such a shorty can really get in the way sometimes. And I’m not just talking about the fact that all my top shelves go unused, or how if I’m not in the front row of a show, I don’t have a chance in hell of seeing the band. No, I’m actually talking about the struggles of having sex when you're short — especially when your partner is tall.

Because I’ve always been attracted to tall guys, I’ve found that while some positions work, others just do not. For example, when I dated a guy who was 6’4”, it was almost impossible for us to kiss while in the missionary position, because his head was that much higher than mine. Granted, I would lift up and he’d sort of pull downward so we could kiss, but each time we did so, the penetration was less deep because he’d have to move down, and in doing so, his hips would follow. Our height difference kind of got in the way of all that intimacy that comes with getting to look your partner in the eyes when you orgasm.

In being short, I’ve realized that, as long as I'm only having sex with tall men, there are just some positions that I’ll never get to experience. Which I guess isn’t totally the end of the world. But the positions that have worked for me have worked magnificently. Here are fives positions for my fellow shorties out there.

1. Spooning

How To Do It: Get into the spooning position — but of course, you want to be the little spoon for this. Because he’s behind you and unable to really see where he needs to enter you, the best way to get him to penetrate you is to lift your leg a bit and push your hips against him as he gets himself into place.

Why It Works: Well, if you’re a shorter girl, you’re used to being the little spoon when you’re spooning. And because you’re not standing but lying on your sides, your height difference doesn’t come into play all that much. It’s also a great way to stimulate your G-spot, since he’s coming in from behind.

2. Girl On Top (Cowgirl)

How To Do It: If the name isn't self-explanatory enough, then let me break it down for you: Have him lie down on his back, while you get on top, straddling his hips, and take him inside you.

Why It Works: Well, if you’re limited in the height area, where you really excel is having sex on top, because you’re little! You can easily control the situation on top with your hips, and without long legs getting in the way. In fact, if you really are that petite, you just might even be able to show off your thigh strength by sitting up and spinning all the way around on your partner's penis in a circle. Of course, you don’t want to hurt his dick, but there’s reason short girls are sometimes called spinners.

3. Sitting

How To Do It: Ask your partner to sit up-right with his legs crossed. From there, you want to slowly lower yourself onto this penis while facing him, then wrap your arms and legs around him. It might take a few minutes to sync your movements, but don’t worry, you’ll get there.

Why It Works: Again, your height allows you to get on your partner and embrace them fully with your limbs. It’s also in this position that you can have some pretty hot makeout sessions, because you’re facing each other, making it extremely intimate. If you think you can handle it, you can also try a variation of this one with your back against the wall, your limbs still around him, while he stands. Sex against a wall, while your body is totally supported in his arms, is pretty hot. This position will also help him last longer.

4. Doggy Style

How To Do It: Get on your hands and knees; then, your partner enters you from behind while on his knees. But depending on how short you are, you just might need to put a pillow or two under your hips so that you and your partner are parallel to each other.

Why It Works: Doggy style is pretty much the position that just keeps giving. It’s great for short women, first-timers, men with small penises, and also provides some intense G-spot stimulation. Even if you don’t orgasm that way, either you or partner can use a vibrator to stimulate your clitoris.

5. Dangling Over The Edge Of The Bed

How To Do It: Lay back on your bed, with your legs hanging off the side. You also want to make sure your butt is as close to the edge as possible. From here, your partner stands between your legs and enters you from a standing position, while pulling his hips in toward your hips, as if making an L-shape of your two sets of hips.

Why It Works: With him standing, he’s manning the ship, and your height allows him to have more control over the position as he thrusts away. It’s also great because, while in other positions (i.e. missionary), men have to hold up their body weight, in this one he's standing and holding your body, which is fully supported by the bed, so it provides more leverage for him. If you throw in a vibrator in to use while he penetrates you from this angle, then you’re golden. Also, if your bed is on the short side, a couple of pillows under your butt will make a big difference.
