It may be the most common sex position in the world, but it’s also one of the most intimate lovemaking styles.

Missionary is our favorite position not because it’s the most basic, but because it can be — and often is — the best.

Still, missionary gets an unfair rep as boring, vanilla sex. Missionary sex gets labeled as boring or basic because it’s typically the first position — and sometimes only position that couples try.

And yes, missionary is basic, but that doesn’t stop us. We know what’s good.

According to a survey by Skyn Condoms, the Missionary Position is the #2 sex position for most couples, right behind Doggy style.

Missionary is an easy pose for a wide range of people because it doesn’t require much in the way of strength, flexibility, or agility.

When you’re in the missionary position, both you and your partner have an incredible view of each other’s bodies. It’s really sexy to see your partner moving and reacting to the pleasure they’re feeling.

7 Hot Variations On the Missionary Sex Position

Before you write off missionary as boring, try these moves to make it even better.

  1. 1. Missionary With A Pillow

    Place a pillow under her butt — either a sex wedge pillow or a regular pillow works fine — and try wrapping her legs around you for extra deep penetration.

    A little lift changes the angle of entry, and that can make a big difference. If you’re not looking for sex positions that require yoga flexibility, props and pillows can keep your bodies aligned in a pleasurable way.

  3. 2. Coital Alignment Technique

    The CAT sex position gives you the best angle for vaginal and clitoral stimulation at the same time.

    Shift up so that your hips are higher than hers. During penetration, stay all the way inside of her rather than thrusting in and out.

    The opening of the vagina has a high concentration of nerve endings that are often overlooked. Drive her crazy by giving her just the tip. You do this by delivering shallow, quick strokes that only allow the tip of your penis to penetrate the entry.

    These strokes will help to warm your girl up and get her really wet.

  7. 4. The Arch

    Have your partner use her legs to lift her lower body up off the bed (or floor, or couch, or wherever.) A hard flat surface can actually make it easier for her to hold herself up.

    The Arch Sex Position requires some muscle, but you can support some of her weight by wrapping your arm around her waist. Or you can use a pillow to support her lower back.

    The angle is perfect to hit all the sensitive spots inside of her, and your hands are free to give her clit extra attention.

  9. 5. Leg Lock

    Start in the missionary position, wrap her legs around your waist ankles crossed like a pretzel.

    Gripping with the thighs tightens her vaginal and pelvic muscles.

    Take it slow when going deep, and penetrate until you can feel her cervix. Once you’re as far as you can go, use your hips to press slowly and rhythmically into her. You’re remaining as close to the cervix as possible.

    This deep penetration presses against the A spot with strokes that can bring about powerful, quivering orgasms.
