7 Sex Positions For When You're Feeling Lazy

Some of the best sex positions are the simplest — the ones that require the least amount of effort. But lazy sex positions are hugely underrated. In fact, I think they're what keep our sex lives alive. We often think of the positions that spice up our sex lives as the ones to focus on, but if every sexual encounter involves balancing on your head in the shower with a series of pulleys and levers, you're not going to be having a lot of sex. There are some days you're just not going to be up for that. The more effort the sex requires, the more likely you are to find an excuse as soon as you're tired or feeling lazy.

And regular, fulfilling sex is so important. If you have a few lazy sex positions in your repertoire, then you and your partner can take advantage of them on those days where you don't want to get out of the duvet. Or maybe even out of your pajamas (no judgment, we've all been there). In fact, some of the coziest, most intimate sex can happen with some really lazy AF positions. You're not so busy thrusting and twisting, so you can actually focus on the connection.

So here are the seven best sex positions for when you're feeling lazy, because lazy sex is way more fun than no sex.

1Modified Doggy

How To Do It: Start in doggy, and then slowly lower down onto your elbows. Or, if you're really feeling lazy, start laying down and put a pillow under your hips while your partner enters you from behind.

Why It's Great For The Lazy: It has all the benefits of doggy, like deep penetration and a sexy angle, but you're both basically lying down. I mean, you can even use pillows for extra laziness. A pillow.

2Face To Face

How To Do It: Make sure you start with your hips higher than your partner's, and keep the lube handy — it's a tight fit, but worth it. Wrap your top leg around their hip and pull yourself closer, guiding them inside you. It may take a couple of tries, but once you're there enjoy some gentle rocking and grinding.

Why It's Great For The Lazy: You know when you wake up on a lazy morning and are just laying there chatting? This position is that, but, you know, with penetration.

3Lotus

How To Do It: After your partner sits cross-legged, slowly lower yourself onto them and wrap your legs and arms around them. You may need lube, because it's a tight squeeze, but that's what makes it so great.

Why It's Great For The Lazy: It's not only a giant hug, it's also way more focused on a deep, tight fit and grinding then thrusting and moving. It's hard to get into, but once you're there it's downright meditative.

4Coital Alignment Technique

How To Do It: It's just like missionary position except with your hips slightly lower and your knees hiked up and wrapped around your partner's hips. It may seem like an arbitrary change, but it's actually a much better position for stimulation, trust me.

Why It's Great For The Lazy: This is one of the best positions for orgasm and it's only a slight twist on the classic missionary position. Great for when you need to get off, but without a lot of work involved.

5Spooning

How To Do It: You may love to spoon, so it's just about capitalizing on what you already do. Lay with your partner behind you and your hips slightly higher than theirs. They should place their hand on your hip to help guide themselves inside you. Use your hands, or even a vibrator, for extra clit fun.

Why It's Great For The Lazy: I mean, I don't even need to explain how lazy this is. But you have free hands for clit play, great G-spot stimulation, and a sexy fit, so lazy doesn't half to mean half-assed. It can still be really intense.

6Cowgirl

How To Do It: Your partner has the easiest job —  just laying down. You straddle them and slowly lower yourself down. You can then use your hands to brace or play with yourself.

Why It's Great For The Lazy: Sure, you can really go buck wild in cowgirl, but you don't have to. Instead, pitch forward and rest on your hands, and just focus on grinding. Then it's lazy, but with you in charge.

7X Marks The Spot

How To Do It: Lay on the edge of the bed (or a table) while your partner stands in front of you. Cross your legs at the knee or ankle, whatever's most comfortable, and rest them on their chest. Experiment with different tightnesses, but mostly just let them get to work.

Why It's Great For The Lazy: Just because you're feeling lazy, doesn't mean your partner is. This allows you to lay back and enjoy, while they get moving. You just get the sensation and the sexy view.

Just because you're feeling lazy, doesn't mean you can't have fun. Pick a cozy position and relax, because you can still have an orgasm without all that panting and humping. Save that for springtime.
