9 Best Sex Positions For The Car

Jacob Lund/Fotolia

Although getting to have sex in a car isn't an opportunity that comes my way very often these days, I do remember how fun it was. Aside from a mutual masturbation situation in the car with an ex a couple years ago, the last time I had sex in a car was during a snowstorm in college. My college boyfriend and I snuck out over winter break to have sex in his car, but unfortunately the car slid into a snowbank and got stuck. However, being champs, before we called AAA for help, we had sex, then took care of the car problems. Priorities, right?

At 5', I'm a good height for having sex in a car, even though all of my partners have been 6' or taller, we've managed. I'm of the belief that as long as you're both not well over 6' tall, as in you're both not professional basketball players hovering around 7' or more, having sex in the car can definitely be achieved. While not all positions can be executed in the car, there's certainly more than a few that can, albeit with some finagling.

So whether it's your first time having sex in a car or you're feeling like you want to take a trip down memory lane or you're on a long road trip and, damn, you need to get laid now, here are nine sex positions for the car — if we assume that the car is at least average-sized and not one of those mini compact cars that you can practically fit in your pocket.

1. On Top

How to do it: With your partner seated, knees bent, straddle them, lowering yourself onto them.

Why it's good for in the car: This position can work in the back seat, the passenger's seat, or even the driver's seat, if it's pushed far enough away from the steering wheel so there isn't incessant horn-beeping with every move.

2. Seated Back Bend

How to do it: First, have your partner sit with their legs straight out in front them. Next, while facing them, straddle and lower yourself onto them. Finally, because we're not quite done yet, bend back. Why, yes, you do need to be somewhat limber to pull off this position without hurting yourself.

Why it's good for in the car: You may not be able to do this one in either one of the front seats, but you can totally do it in the backseat, no problem. In fact, I suggest you go out and try it right now so you can see I'm right.

3. Modified Missionary

How to do it: First of all, you want to get into regular missionary for this position. Next, pull your knees up, while your partner bends their knees a bit too.

Why it's good for in the car: Bent knee positions immediately shorten people up, making them fit into smaller spaces. Since that's the case, this position can work lying down in the backseat or in the passenger's seat.

4. Mutual Masturbation

How to do it: Grab your partner and, simply, proceed to masturbate along side them.

Why it's good for in the car: Honestly, I'm pretty sure there isn't a place where you can't mutual masturbate with your partner. You can, literally, do it anywhere. As for in the car, you can even be driving along, decide you're horny, pull into a dark area, and both just start going at yourselves, while throwing in some dirty talk for extra fun. If you can masturbate anywhere (although I suggest you don't in certain places, because no one wants "sex offender" on their record), then you can practice mutual masturbation anywhere, too.

5. Reverse Cowgirl

How to do it: With your partner lying down, straddle them, while facing away.

Why it's good for in the car: Although some reverse cowgirl positions can be done with you sitting upright, if you stay low, parallel to your partner's body, then it can be done in the car. While you probably won't be able to do it in either one of the front seats, unless you have a car where the seats go all the way flat (do those even exist?), you'll be able to pull it off in the backseat with some adjusting.

6. Modified Doggy

Caroline Wurtzel/Bustle

How to do it: For modified doggy, you can either start in the traditional doggy style position (which might be tricky in a car), or just get right to it, by both you and your partner lowering your bodies until you're almost flat.

Why it's good for in the car: This one, again if you're not seven-foot-something, can be done in the back seat, as well as the passenger's seat with a bit of effort. But you have to get the passenger seat at flat as possible, so your backs aren't uncomfortably arched. Although an arched back on your end does make for deeper penetration — just a fun little trick to know, if you didn't already.

7. Weak In The Knees

Caroline Wurtzel/Bustle

How to do it: With your partner (or you) lying on their back, knees bent, straddle their face, and voila! Oral is on!

Why it's good for in the car: I feel like when we think about oral sex in the car, we tend to only think about blowjobs or "road head," a term with which I'll probably never make peace. But this particular position is delivering to the one with the vagina in the equation and it's about time, right? While you won't be able to knock it out of the park in the driver's seat or passenger's seat with this position, it can definitely be done in the back seat. So that's where you need to head for this goody.

8. Woman On Top (Another Version)

Caroline Wurtzel/Bustle

How to do it: With your partner lying down, crawl on top, straddle them, and get to grinding.

Why it's good for in the car: Again we have a position that keeps the bodies parallel with each other which is ideal sex-in-a-car material. This one can be done in the backseat or the passenger seat. You can also evolve this position into the other version of woman on top. (See number one.)

9. Spooning

Caroline Wurtzel/Bustle

How to do it: While in the spooning position, have your partner penetrate you from behind. This is also a great position to make them last longer, if they're a little to quick.

Why it's good for in the car: In order for this one to work in the car, the backseat needs have a decent amount of depth to it, so two bodies can fit side-by-side. To the best of my knowledge, and I'm no car expert, unless you have a tiny sports car, you can do this. If you have an SUV, you can nail this super easy. Then, the best part? You're already in the cuddle position, so you can just cuddle up... until you're ready for round two.

As I said, sex in the car can be really fun! It's all about not being afraid to try other positions that may not have crossed your mind as "sex-in-the-car" friendly. It should also be noted, that car sex isn't just for high school or college kids; you're never too old to have sex in a car, so if you get the opportunity, go for it.
