Photographed by Lauren Perlstein.
When did you last try a new sex position? Whether or not you're in a relationship, it's all too easy to fall back on a handful of tried-and-tested moves and forget the delicious variety available to you and your partner.
That's where Clare Cavanah and Rachel Venning come in. They're not only the founders of sex toy boutique and educational hub Babeland, they're the authors of Moregasm: Babeland's Guide to Mind-Blowing Sex. With insight into everything from BDSM to birth control, Moregasm is an expert (yet relatable) roadmap to your best-ever sex life.

The Recliner
"Man lies down on his back. Giver lies between his legs. Good for visuals and eye contact. Can be rough on the neck."

Leg Reversal

"Hold your legs straight and together while the penetrative partner opens up their legs around yours. It takes a little more work to get the penis or dildo into the V, but then it’s a nice tight feeling."

The Octopus

"Hands and legs are wrapping around her while you polish her pearl. Feels like a nice big bear hug combined with an equally lovely hand job."

The Face-Sitter

"Giver lies on back. The man straddles giver’s face and puts his penis in his or her mouth. This provides the blower very little control, but it’s also less work. Do this with someone you trust."

Assisted Missionary

"Put a pillow or two under your butt or under your lower back. This will tilt your pelvis up to better match the natural angle of the penis or dildo. This is also nice if you suffer from back pain."

Reach Around

“A perfect way to surprise him while he’s doing the dishes.”

The S-Curve

"She lies on her right side, halfway curled up. You lie on your left side facing her, farther down, with your head to her muff. The two of you form a big S from above. Great for the neck, bad for eye contact."

Romance A-Go-Go

"Remember, you don’t have to limit your hand job to hand and cock alone. Bring in all those other tools, such as boobs, mouth, tongue, and nipples."

Power Up

"Add hands-free vibration to the fun. The wearable We-Vibe (which stimulates the clit and the G-spot and is made to be worn during intercourse) or a vibrating penis ring can provide the clit stimulation that the missionary position sometimes denies."

Life On The Edge

"Lie down on your back at the edge of the bed, with your thighs and legs dangling off. Bend your knees and put your feet on the ground. Your partner stands or kneels between your legs and enters you. Your partner gets a great view and control of a deep thrust. You get to kick back and enjoy."

Careful With The Balls!

"This image is a do-not-do example. By all means, tickle and gently fondle the balls, but don’t squeeze unless you are explicitly told to do so!"

Butt Lift

"Put your ankles on your partner's shoulders. This will lift your butt in the air. Your partner can hold your butt or your legs, and can kiss and massage your feet. Your partner has total control over the thrusting. Not great for stimulating the clit."

The Scissors

"You and your partner are making a scissor shape, with your partner's leg between one of yours and the other outside it. Lots of pressure on your mons makes this position a cut above."

Reverse Cowgirl

"Kneel and straddle your partner, facing the other direction. You can put your arms in front of you and lean on your partner's knees, or you can arch and lean back on your arms behind you. This does not allow easy eye contact, but you get a lot of control."

The Flying Buttress

"This is for show-offs. Your partner is on top but facing away from you, head at your feet. Entry can be difficult from this angle. You can tilt your pelvis up to help the cause. For some, this is enjoyable. For others, it requires too much flexibility."

Limbo Like Me

"If you are flexible enough, lean back so your head is between your partner's ankles. Then, your partner holds your hips to control the thrusting. This helps the penis hit the G-spot. Anybody's free hand (or vibe!) can rub the clit."

Raised Doggy

"Your partner kneels or stands behind you and enters you. Your thighs can be apart with your partner's thighs inside yours. If your partner's strong, they can (after penetration) lift and hold one or both of your legs — like a sexy wheelbarrow."

Supported Doggy

"You kneel by the side of the bed, facing it and bracing your arms against the mattress. Your partner kneels behind you. All the fun of regular doggy, but with solid support."

Tired Doggy

"You lie face down with one or two pillows under your pelvis, so your butt tilts up. Your partner lies on top of you and enters you from behind with legs either between or outside of yours. You have little control, but it sure is restful!"

The Side Roll

"Your partner lies on their side, leaning back a little, legs apart. You lie in front, backing onto the penis or dildo. Your thighs are together and resting between your partner's thighs. You can also get here by starting in Reverse Cowgirl, unbending your knees, and sending your legs out straight in front of you. And everyone tilts to the side."

Taking The L Train

"Your partner lies on their side. You lie on your side at a 90-degree angle, forming an L with your partner's body. Your chest faces the headboard. You bend your legs and put your knees over your partner's shoulders, your butt against the penis or dildo. Your partner enters you from there. Or, try the variation pictured, where you're on your back."

The Liftoff

"Your partner is standing and holds you by the butt as you straddle them. It takes a lot of strength. For greater ease and fun, your partner can hoist your butt on the kitchen counter (or washing machine or desk)."

Standing Doggy

"You stand and face away. Your partner enters you from behind. This position is tough if you are of different heights. A possible solution? Sexy high heels on the shorter partner. Or, you can get on all fours at the edge of the bed. Your partner stands and enters you from behind."

The Yogi

"Your partner sits up in bed (legs out or cross-legged) and, facing them, you sit on their lap, legs astride or around them. You can also transition to this from Cowgirl if your partner sits up and you straighten your legs. Great for closeness and kissing, since your chests come together in a hug. Arms are free. It takes some torso strength to stay upright."

Sidesaddle

"This works well on an armchair. You sit on your partner's lap, but ride sidesaddle instead of astride. You move yourself up and down with your arms or your legs, if they reach the floor."

The Bend-Over

"She’s on her hands and knees while you reach through from behind. A perfect opportunity for tickling her ass to boot."
