According to the Kama Sutra, there are hundreds of sex positions you need to try out there to try before you die. Although the likelihood that you’ll want to try them all may not be very high, the fact remains that they exist, should you need to change things up. And hey, sometimes the three or four positions you’ve been doing can get old fast.
There are positions for the female orgasm, the ideal positions for nailing your G-spot perfectly, and even positions for smaller penises. Basically, you're covered when it comes to the physical end of things, but what about the mental end of things? You shouldn't totally ignore that factor, because, especially for women, great sex incorporates a bunch of mental aspects, too.
Not only are there ideal sex positions for different sized bodies and physical needs, but there are sex positions that also fit the bill for specific personalities, too. For example, introverted women probably have a far different idea of what makes for a great position than women who are more on the extroverted side. Because that’s the case, that also means that there are perfect positions for people who want to show off a bit in the bedroom.
If you’re a showoff and you know it, pay attention. These positions are for you. (And keep in mind, these positions work with two women as well!)
1. The Side Straddle
How To Do It: This position is great because you’re facing away from your partner while straddling their leg. You slide yourself down onto their penis, then you begin to move up and down, while gyrating against their leg which is great for clitoral stimulation.
Why It’s Great For Showoffs: This particular position is awesome for showoffs in two ways. For starters, you’re in control as you slide up and down, and as any showoff will tell you, they love any position where they’re the star. Secondly, you’re giving your partner the chance to check out your ass ― another thing all showoffs love.
2. Reverse Cowgirl
How To Do It: Well, just as the name suggests you’re doing cowgirl, but backward. However, I want to point out that when it comes to a possible penile fracture, this position is the most common for that, but I digress.
Why It’s Great For Showoffs: Reverse Cowgirl takes some crazy thigh muscles and, depending on how high you bounce, it’s also all about aim ― you do not want to break your partner's penis! There’s also the “Look at my hot ass” factor once again.
3. Legs Up
How To Do It: You want to start as if you’re going into missionary, but when your partner situates their body between your legs, you want to put your legs up and back toward your head. You can either rest them on their shoulder or put them way back. It provides for some very deep penetration.
Why It’s Great For Showoffs: This particular move shows some crazy flexibility on your part. Some women can get their legs so far up and back, that they’re resting them on the headboard of the bed or the wall behind them. That’s pretty damn impressive.
4. The Splitter
How To Do It: For this position, you want to lie on your back with your partner kneeling in front of you, while straddling one of your legs. Whatever leg your partner isn’t straddling should go up in the air, where it can find a place to rest on their shoulder if you’d like.
Why It’s Great For Showoffs: Again, this position is a great display of your flexibility. While you can totally just rest your leg on your partner’s body, you can also bring it even further back. The further back you bring your leg, the deeper the penetration, too.
5. The Bridge
How To Do It: You want to start on your back with your knees bent. From there, your partner gets between your legs from a kneeling position, as you lift and arch your back, while they pull your hips into them. It’s in this position that your partner has the perfect amount of leverage to really give you a ton of pleasure.
Why It’s Great For Showoffs: This position is a great workout. I’m serious. What this means for showoffs is that they get to show just how awesome they are at multitasking. Oh, look at you… exercising and having an orgasm all at once?! You win at life!
6. The Crab Walk
How To Do It: Although I like to the keep the word “crab” as far away from any sexual discussion, the crab walk is where I make an exception. Facing each other, both you and your partner want to get into the crab position (think back to gym class for this one). Both of you should have your hands and feet flat on the ground, then when you’re close enough to your partner, you can lower yourself onto their penis.
Why It’s Great For Showoffs: While it doesn’t offer some majorly deep penetration, it does showoff flexibility and a fearlessness to look sort of silly. You and your partner are also facing each other in this position, so you both get an eye-full which is always a good thing.
7. The Three-Legged Dog
How To Do It: While standing and facing each other, have your partner lift one of your legs up and off to the side a bit. From here, with that one leg up and out of the way, your partner is to penetrate you; yes, while you continue to stand and stand on one leg alone.
Why It’s Great For Showoffs: Well, you’re on one leg, so that right there is all but screaming, “Look at how fantastic my balance is!” Also, anything that involves standing usually falls in the showoff category, because having sex, good sex especially, while standing up is no easy feat.
