Classic Performing the Missionary Position

Sex position #67 - Missionary. (face to face, lying down, man on top). Kamasutra - Photo, picture, image

The man is typically on top, taking charge of the penetration. He supports himself with his hands and arms, creating a strong and stable position. From this vantage point, he can control the depth and pace of thrusting, allowing him to cater to his partner’s pleasure.

The woman, on the other hand, lies on her back, her legs often spread wide or wrapped around her partner. She can engage in various activities to enhance her pleasure and increase intimacy. She can explore her partner’s body by caressing his back, grabbing his buttocks, or running her fingers through his hair. This intimate contact can heighten sensations for both partners.

How to Get More Pleasure From the Missionary Position

Before we get into the different variations of the missionary position let’s talk about some tips & tricks to enhance and improve the regular missionary position for a more enjoyable experience:

  • Communication is key. Talk openly with your partner about your desires, preferences, and any adjustments you’d like to make to enhance the position. Sharing feedback and discussing what feels good can lead to a more satisfying experience for both of you.
  • Focus on the grinding. Forget about routine thrusts, and let the grinding take center stage. The top partner should grind their body against the receiving partner’s clitoris. This change in movement adds a whole new level of pleasure and intimacy to the mix. By engaging in this grinding motion, you provide direct and continuous stimulation to their clitoris, heightening the pleasure and potentially leading to breathtaking orgasms.
  • Explore different angles. Ask the receiving partner to experiment with leg placement, such as wrapping their legs around your waist or placing their legs on your shoulders. This can add a different level of penetration and intensity to the missionary position. You could also use pillows or cushions under the hips or buttocks to adjust the angle of penetration. This can create different sensations and increase pleasure for both partners.

    Below I’ll show dozens of ways you can do this (with pictures).

  • Additional clitoral stimulation. The woman can also stimulate her clitoris with her hand or a vibrator, adding a delicious layer of pleasure to the mix.
  • Incorporate sex toys. Introduce sex toys, such as a vibrating cock ring or anal plug, to add extra stimulation to erogenous zones like the clitoris or perineum. This can enhance pleasure for both partners and intensify orgasmic experiences.
  • Add variation. Incorporate sensual touches, such as running your hands along your partner’s body, kissing passionately, or whispering naughty words to heighten intimacy and arousal.
  • Explore role-playing and dirty talk. Embrace your fantasies and engage in role-playing or incorporate dirty talk to spice up the experience. This can add an extra layer of excitement and passion to the session.

Remember, the key is to prioritize open communication, experimentation, and mutual consent.

What works for one couple may not work for another, so don’t be afraid to explore and find what brings you the most pleasure in the missionary position. Enjoy your adventurous exploration!

42 Missionary Position Variations

Alrighty then, we’ve finally arrived at the juiciest part of our journey!) Let’s talk about some exciting variations of the missionary position. It’s time to spice things up and bring some creativity to the bedroom.

Here are 42 ideas that will take your missionary game to a whole new level:

Variation #1

Here is the first option. Visually, it might not look much different from the classic missionary position. But hold on, because the magic lies in the nature of the friction.

Sex position #3 - Cat. (face to face, lying down, man on top). Kamasutra - Photo, picture, image
Sex position #3. Cat

Here’s the lowdown: The CAT (coital alignment technique) variation focuses on maintaining constant contact between the pubic bone of the penetrating partner and the clitoris of the receiving partner to enhance clitoral stimulation during intercourse.

Instead of focusing on inward thrusts, the man should move up and down along her body.

This technique aims to promote deeper connections and potentially increase the chances of simultaneous orgasm for both partners.

Variation #2

Let’s add a touch of exotic! Introducing the closed missionary position.

Sex position #151 - Twix. (face to face, lying down, man on top). Kamasutra - Photo, picture, image
Sex position #151 – Twix

At first, it might seem like something impossible, but it’s actually much simpler than it appears.

The main highlight of this variation is the angle of penetration, which can offer new sensations to both partners.

Here’s how it’s done. There’s no need to try to penetrate the woman in this position – it can be quite challenging and uncomfortable. There’s a much simpler way to achieve it.

While the woman is in the missionary position, she simply pulls one of her legs out alongside her body, and the man raises his leg and throws it over her leg. Then, we do the same with the other leg.

Variation #3

For those who want to take it even further, you can try to expand on the previous variation (#2).

Sex position #16 - Tornado. (criss cross, man on top). Kamasutra - Photo, picture, image
Sex position #16 – Tornado

The woman pulls her right leg towards her, and the man turns himself across his partner’s body, embracing her thigh with his hips.

Variation #4

The girl lifts her legs up and wraps them around the man’s waist.

Sex position #42 - Fall. (face to face, lying down, man on top). Kamasutra - Photo, picture, image
Sex position #42 – Fall

Below I will show some more similar variants, but I want to emphasize one very important feature of these positions.

All variants of the missionary position with legs raised up provide deeper penetration.

Keep that in mind. Men with big dicks should be careful, while men with small dicks can use this to their advantage.

Variation #5

Using a pillow or cushion under your partner’s buttocks is a game-changer, my friends.

Sex position #29 - Harmony. (face to face, lying down, man on top). Kamasutra - Photo, picture, image
Sex position #29 – Harmony

It elevates her pelvis, creating a whole new angle of penetration that can make all the difference.

It maximizes stimulation of the oh-so-pleasurable G-spot.

Sure, you can grab any old pillow or even roll up a blanket, but the results may not always be top-notch.

That’s where specialized sex furniture comes into play – sex pillows, to be precise. Let me tell you, they take things to a whole new level of satisfaction.

Variation #6

Although this missionary position option may require a bit more physical effort from the man, it comes with a significant advantage.

Sex position #79 - Rodeo. (face to face, lying down, man on top). Kamasutra - Photo, picture, image
Sex position #79 – Rodeo

When a man stands on his tiptoes, he gains the ability to move with a greater range.

This means that the up and down movements along her body can be extended, intensifying the clitoral stimulation.

This becomes especially crucial when you’re trying the Coital Alignment Technique (CAT) we mentioned earlier.

Variation #7

The girl puts one leg over the man’s opposite shoulder.

Sex position #127 - Acrobat. (face to face, lying down, man on top). Kamasutra - Photo, picture, image
Sex position #127 – Acrobat

Her pelvis is slightly raised and twisted, which also creates a non-standard angle of penetration.

Variation #8

This variant is also called the Eagle sex position.

Sex position #163 - Eagle. (face to face, lying down, man on top). Kamasutra - Photo, picture, image
Sex position #163 – Eagle

The man holds the woman’s legs with his hands under her knees.

The main feature is the deepest possible penetration.

Variation #9

The girl holds her legs up, spreads them wide, and aligns them. It’s also called the spread eagle sex position.

Sex position #55 - Spread Eagle. (face to face, lying down, man on top). Kamasutra - Photo, picture, image
Sex position #55 – Spread Eagle

You might be curious about the purpose and effects of this unique leg positioning. Take a deep breath and relax! It’s just for fun!))

Variation #10

The girl throws her legs over the man’s shoulders.

Sex position #115 - Anvil. (Knees to Chest, face to face, lying down, man on top). Kamasutra - Photo, picture, image
Sex position #115 – Anvil

The thighs folded together make penetration tighter. Thats why this is a best position for men with a small penis.

Variation #11

A man can go lower to kiss his woman.

Sex position #328 - Deck chair. (anal sex, face to face, man on top, lying down). Kamasutra - Photo, picture, image
Sex position #328 – Deck chair

It’s worth mentioning that these two variations may not be suitable for all girls, as they do require a certain level of flexibility.

But there is a simpler one, and you can see it below.

Variation #12

The man kneels upright with the woman’s legs still on his shoulders.

Sex position #199 - Nirvana. (kneeling, right angle). Kamasutra - Photo, picture, image
Sex position #199 – Nirvana

Now the woman does not have to stretch the back of her thighs much, which makes this sex position more easy and comfortable for most women.

Variation #13

The man sits on his butt and leans back a little, pulling his legs forward.

Sex position #81 - Lock. (right angle, sitting). Kamasutra - Photo, picture, image
Sex position #81 – Lock

This type of penetration may not directly stimulate the clitoris, but it primarily targets the front wall of the vagina, specifically the G-spot

By the way, a girl in this position does not prevent stimulating the clitoris additionally with her hand or a sex toy if she needs it.

Variation #14

Pretty much the same thing.

Sex position #93 - Diamond. (right angle, sitting). Kamasutra - Photo, picture, image

Variation #15

Another similar way.

Sex position #349 - Moonlight. (anal sex, reverse, right angle, sitting). Kamasutra - Photo, picture, image
Sex position #349 – Moonlight

Variation #16

Feel like the captain of the female orgasm!)

Sex position #209 – Captain

For a woman, it’s comfortable to provide additional stimulation to herself. Plus, the man gets to witness it all, which can be an extra exciting factor for him.

Variation #17

This and the following variation of the missionary position are sure to please the men out there.

Sex position #302 - Launch Pad. (anal sex, right angle). Kamasutra - Photo, picture, image
Sex position #302 – Launch Pad

Men absolutely love watching as their penis enters the vagina – it’s incredibly arousing.

Variation #18

Another version of the previous position.

Sex position #275 - Seashell. (anal sex, right angle). Kamasutra - Photo, picture, image

But hey, let’s be real, not every woman may be able to perform this position.

Variation #19

Variation #20

And this is what a reverse missionary position looks like.

Sex position #101 – Watering can

Transitioning into this position from the classic missionary is a breeze. Simply roll to one side, so that the bottom partner ends up on top.

In some cases, women find it easier to achieve orgasm in this position as they have control over the angle and depth of penetration according to their preference.

Variation #21

Sex position #283 - Lizard. (woman on top, face to face, spooning, lying down). Kamasutra - Photo, picture, image
Sex position #283 – Lizard

    Should I have to choose only one sex position, undoubtedly it would be the classic missionary. I can’t emphasize it enough!

    Previously, I misjudged it for being overly traditional or lackluster until my present partner completely transformed my perspective. Now, it’s truly my most cherished and intimate sanctuary.

    Sandwiched underneath him, hanging on to every move and savoring the sensation of his weight pressing against me, engaging in passionate kisses, and tuning into the rhythm of his breath and spoken sentiments — it is simply enthralling.

    The distinctive feature of the missionary sex position is its remarkable versatility. It can fluidly transition from exceptionally romantic to downright steamy and risque, all based on subtle shifts in the tone of our conversation and actions, enabling us to adapt according to the ambiance.

    Claiming that missionary is uninteresting is like dissing water because everyone consumes it. It, along with doggy style, are among the most mechanically effective positions out there.

    Missionary is one of the best sex positions out there. What’s often overlooked is its popularity when it comes to teaching a virgin bride in her wedding night. Most of us, including almost all of my friends, had it done in missionary.

    We probably all remember the mixed feelings of excitement and apprehension, together with shame and insecurity. If we’re honest about it, we have to admit that for most of us, it would have never happened if it wasn’t for our husbands to take the lead and guide us. Being pinned down and taken care of by my husband was exactly what I needed and missionary is absolutely ideal for him to be in control and make it happen.

    Almost all of my friends shared the exact same experience of being pinned down in their wedding night, so I believe missionary is pretty much the most effective way for seducing a hesitant virgin bride.

    It’s simply so easy to shift from an innocent massage and fooling around to actual sex, even if you’re not expecting it! After the wedding ceremony, my husband just offered me massaging my feet, which I really enjoyed. I honestly had no clue that he already planned for full sex! At one point, he grabbed my ankles and lifted up my feet. He made me put my legs up over his shoulders and before I could understand what was going on, he leaned forward and I found myself pinned down with my feet pointing up towards the headboard. I was trapped entirely! I never knew or expected that this is the most common way to teach a virgin girl. Only afterwards I learned that basically all my friends had it done like that. Looking back at it, it even makes sense. I would have been too scared to ever ask for it. But now that I was firmly pinned by my husband, there was no question about it and I knew that it was absolutely going to happen that night.
