Best Sex Positions for Her Orgasm


The best sex positions are those that allow you and her to experience the greatest pleasure and come to an orgasm. Seems obvious, right?

But a large majority (60-70% depending on which poll you read) of women don’t orgasm during sex. Can a few changes to your favorite position make her orgasm easier? Hell yeah!

“Research shows it’s clitoral stimulation, not vaginal stimulation, that is the powerhouse of female orgasms,” says sex therapist Ian Kerner, Ph.D., author of She Comes First.

Woman on Top

Some women say woman on top is the only position where they can reach climax. She’s the one with the greatest range of motion possible, so the woman sets the pace, finding a rhythm that works for you both.

Most women won’t get off from vaginal penetration alone so when she’s on top, wet your fingers and rub her clitoris. The combination of penetration and clit-rubbing may be a little much at first, even uncomfortable. Watch her reaction to avoid overstimulating her.

Doggy Style

For many women it’s a favorite position because it can be great for G-spot stimulation, and for fantasizing.

The key to successful doggy style intercourse is communication. Just as the head of a man’s penis is the most sensitive, the first third of a woman’s vagina is the most sensitive. You need to communicate with your lover to find the right thrust that works for her.

Also, the majority of women do not orgasm through "no hands" intercourse. This can be a good position if she feels nervous about touching herself in front of her partner.

Believe it or not, the old standard is the best sex position for her orgasm. Missionary style is a favorite for many couples because it’s one of the most intimate, but again this position only works for both parties with good communication.

The Coital Alignment Technique or CAT sex position is a way to make sure you’re lined up to give her clitoris the stimulation it needs to get its groove on.

To get into position the man slides forward from his normal resting place so that the woman’s clitoris is receiving stimulation from the base of the man’s penis, with his legs resting outside of hers  instead of inside. Then rather than using a thrusting motion like you’d normally engage in the woman initiate a more gentle rocking motion. The man should push down gently counter resisting the woman’s upward motion.

In one study of women who were unable to orgasm from missionary sex, couples who learned the CAT reported a 56 percent increase in their orgasm frequency.

Of course, one fool-proof method helping a woman to orgasm during sex: Try bringing her close with your hand or orally first before beginning intercourse.
