It is estimated that two-thirds of women have trouble climaxing during sex. If your usual techniques aren’t working for you, try these moves for a change – you’ll find yourself hitting your pleasure peak with minimal effort.

 

The C.A.T. (Coital Alignment Technique)
What it is: Get into the missionary position, but spread your legs slightly wider apart than you normally would. Once he is inside you, your man then slides his body upwards, towards your head, so that your jaw is just touching his shoulder. His pelvis should be aligned with yours, and his hips, pushed downward. From here, he moves in a slow rocking motion. 

Why it works: Most women cannot climax without clitoral stimulation, and this more sensual version of the missionary position addresses that problem. It is also a proven and effective way for you and Hubby to orgasm simultaneously. 

 

The Leapfrog
What it is: Get on your hands and knees, and, keeping your hips raised, lower your head and arms on the bed. You can rest your head and arms on a pillow if you wish. Your buttocks should be up in the air, so that your body resembles an inverted V from the side. Have your man kneel behind you and enter you slowly. He can hold onto your hips or buttocks as he moves.

Why it works: This twist on the traditional doggie-style position allows for deeper penetration and helps stimulate your G-spot.

Crouching cowgirl
What it is: Have your man lie on his back while you straddle him. Unlike the regular Cowgirl or Woman-On-Top position, which requires you to kneel, the Crouching Cowgirl requires you to squat over your man. From this position, slowly lower yourself onto Hubby. Rest your hands on his thighs as you move. Let your feet support most of your weight. Try not to lean backwards too much or you might find it difficult to balance. Your man can hold onto your legs or buttocks and guide your body up and down, or he can hold your waist to help you keep your balance. This position is especially effective if Hubby is not very well endowed.

Why it works: This position leaves your man free to stimulate your clitoris and caress your breasts and inner thighs. It also allows for easier stimulation of your G-spot.

 

The rocking horse
What it is: Ask Hubby to sit on the bed or floor. He can either cross his legs or stretch them out in front of him. Get him to lean back, supporting his weight on his arms. Now climb on top of him, allow him to enter you, and wrap your thighs around his hips. Instead of keeping your upper body straight or tilted back, angle it slightly forward so that your chest is just grazing your man’s chest. From here, move yourself up and down.

Why it works: Angling your body forward positions your clitoris right up against the base of Hubby’s penis. As you move up and down, your clitoris rubs against the shaft, increasing your chances of an orgasm.

The butterfly
What it is: Lay on your back, with your hips resting on the edge of the bed. Have your hubby stand in front of you and enter from this position. He may have to bend his knees slightly, depending on his height and the height of the bed. Now, lift your legs and put them over your man’s shoulders. Tilt your hips upward a little – you can rest your hips or waist on a pillow or cushion if you wish. 

Why it works: Also known as the Modified Missionary, this position gives the perfect angle for deep penetration. 

Sensual spooning
What it is: Lay on your side. Part your legs a little and get Hubby to spoon you from behind. As he thrusts in and out of you slowly, have him kiss your face and neck and stimulate your clitoris with his free hand. At the same time, you can reach behind you and stroke his penis.  

Why it works: Spooning is one of the most comfortable and intimate sex positions out there. It is wonderful if you love close, face-to-face contact with your guy.
