12 Hot Positions For Doing It On The Couch

Ashley Lane & Quentin James

Couch sex can be amazing for many reasons. For one thing, it’s different. The couch can be the setting for quickie sex during downtime, or it can be a comfy place for little and Netflix & Chill.

Having sex on a couch makes it easy to try new positions, because there’s often not enough room for both of your bodies, and there are levels and edges your bed could never hope for!

If you’re looking to get sofa sexy, these 12 couch sex positions should do the trick.

  1. sex on a couch

    1. Cowgirl

    Kneel on top of him as he lies down on the couch with his knees bent. Your partner helps you by supporting some of your weight and holding your hips or thighs as he brings his pelvis up to meet you.

    This fan favorite is the same position you know from the bed, which transfers easily to the couch. Orgasm for both of you happens while you’re sliding up and down on his thighs while using his chest for leverage.

  2. sex on a couch

    2. Couch Surfer

    Lie facedown on the couch with your legs straight. Your partner can then penetrate you from behind.

    Keeping your legs closer together also creates a tighter fit, which will feel wonderful for both you and your partner.

  3. 3. Lap Dance

    For this position, have your partner sit with their back against the arm rest with legs outstretched, or for a smaller couch, have them sit on it properly. You straddle your partner’s waist with your feet on the couch and knees bent. Now get ready for a thigh workout as you lower yourself onto his penis and raise yourself up and down.

    This gives you most of the control, so you can dictate how fast or slow you want to go.

  4. couch sex positions

    4. Missionary

    Lie back as he lies face down on top of you. That’s all there is to it, but you can put finishing touches on it by changing the angles of your legs or moving your pelvis in sync with his.

    Missionary sex has gone through a renaissance, and thank god! It’s a classic for a reason. And, lucky for you, this is a position that is very easy to do on the couch, and your partner’s pelvis against your clit will feel oh-so-good in this cozy setting.

  5. 5. Doggy Style

    Perch on all fours while your partner kneels behind you.

    This position is not only a classic, but space-saving—making it perfect for the couch. It’s one of the best ways to reach the G-spot. Plus, if your partner is draped over you, they can reach over and stimulate your clitoris or nipples.

  6. 6. Spooning

    Both partners lie on their sides, facing the same direction. You bring your knees up slightly, as your partner slides in from behind you.

    Spooning will never be the same again after you’ve spoon-sexed on the couch—it’s the ultimate upgrade to couch cuddle time. And with your partner’s hands free, it’s easy to rub your clit or nipples.

  7. 7. Anvil

    Lie on your back with your legs raised and folded over, so your ankles are around your ears. Your partner can stand over you, or kneel on the couch, as he squats up and down to enter you.

    This position is not for everyone, as it requires a certain level of…flexibility. But if you are up to the challenge, the Anvil can be truly erotic, and allows for some super-deep penetration.

  8. pretzel sex position

    8. The Pretzel

    Lie on your side as your partner kneels over your lower leg, straddling it, and curl your upper leg around his side.

    This achieves the same penetration as doggy style, but adds a level of intimacy as you’re facing each other. To modify it for a smaller couch, bend your right leg instead of leaving it fully extended.

  9. 9. Face Down Ass Up

    This is a more compact version of doggy style, with you on your hands and knees, but with hips raised and your head and arms on the couch.

    It’s more comfortable for your arms and also allows your partner to reach deeper penetration. You can even use your hands to stimulate your clitoris. Or he can use a free hand to do it—even better!

  10. 10. Hot Seat

    Your partner sits on the edge of the couch, while you sit on top, facing away.

    This position was absolutely made for the couch, especially if you’re both super into whatever Netflix show you’ve been binging on.

  11. 11. Face to Face

    Turn together on your sides, both facing each other. It’s basically missionary, but in a different angle. You can also try intertwining your legs with your partner’s.

    Add a little spice to your Netflix and chill session with this creative move. With your bodies fully pressed together, you’ll feel incredibly intimate, and stimulated in all the right places.

  12. 12. Reverse Cowgirl

    Have your partner lie on his back as you straddle him and face his feet.

    This position lets you take control of the rhythm and depth of penetration. If you want to get fancy, lean back a little to change the angle.
