You’ll never see missionary position the same way again. “While on your back, put a pillow under your butt, lift your hips, and bring your legs up and back toward your shoulders, as though you’re folding in half,” says Solot. This move allows him better ease of thrusting and deeper penetration — a perk for both of you. Plus, it can stimulate your G-spot. But consider this a warm-up — you’re getting the zone primed for a more intense orgasm. Once your G-spot feels sufficiently stroked, put your legs down and have him get into coital-alignment-technique (CAT) position. “He’s on top, but he lifts his pelvic bone upward, aligning it with your clitoris,” says sex therapist Gloria Brame, PhD. “Then he rocks against the area until you peak.” “The legs-up position is a slow burn that brings you to the brink and increases sensitivity. Then the addition of clitoral rubbing takes you over the edge in a bigger way than if you had done CAT alone,” adds Brame.

You’ve probably tried an all-fours pose before (at least, we hope you have!). But while mentally the doggie-style position has great bad-girl benefits, in order to make it actually orgasmic, you need to modify it a bit. “Lie on your stomach, lifting your butt slightly so he can enter you,” suggests Solot. “Your partner can prop himself up with his hands in a push-up position or lie on top of you.” Not only does this facedown configuration provide increased friction as he moves in and out, but you can gently grind your clitoral area against the bed as well.
3. the criss-cross
With all the twisting and bending that goes on, sometimes sex can feel more like a cardio workout than a pleasurefest. That’s why it’s important to have at least one relaxed orgasm — inducing position in your repertoire. Such as this: “While you’re on your back, he should lie on his side, turned toward you,” explains Solot. “Swing both legs over his hips and thighs, making a bridge over them.” Then, just let him gently thrust into you. If it takes you a while to climax, this pose is ideal. “It’s not very aerobic, so the sex can go on for a long time without either of you tiring out,” says Laura Berman, PhD, director of the Berman Center and author of The Passion Prescription.“When you want to climax, it’s easy to touch yourself or he can use his top hand to stimulate you.”
4. the giddy-up
Girl-on-top tends to be a go-to for achieving orgasm…and for good reason! “It allows you to dictate the pace and depth of thrusting, but mainly, you have easy access to your clitoris,” says Berman. “You can touch your C-spot, have him touch it, or rub against his pubic bone to achieve orgasm.” But you can up the ante by literally pulling a 180. Twist around so you’re pointed toward his feet in reverse cowgirl position. “Instead of straddling him, put your legs together, feet flat between his legs,” suggests Brame. The benefits of this are twofold: With your legs together, the fit is even tighter, making the sensations more intense. Plus, there’s increased G-spot stimulation, which combined with your own clitoral strokes, makes for an explosive orgasm.
5. torrid tabletop
In some cases, a simple change of scenery can aid in achieving orgasm. For this move, you’ll need a kitchen table — one that comes to your man’s waist. “Lie down on the table with your butt near the edge,” suggests Solot. “He enters you while standing between your legs, holding on to your hips for leverage.” You can rest your feet on his shoulders or on the edge of the table. Because he’s standing, his hands are free to stroke your body,” says Brame. “And he’s at a perpendicular angle, rather than right on top of you, making it easier for him to touch your clitoris, unobstructed.” To up your odds of orgasming, clench and lift up your butt, which will increase the pelvic tension and blood flow to the area.
