You’ve probably nailed down one or two positions that work best for you to reach your peak during sex. And while having an orgasm is usually better than not having one (duh), how you finish can also make a big difference.
Climaxing in the same position every time you have sex is like having ice cream every time you want dessert. Will you like it? Sure, but you’re depriving yourself of so many other tasty treats. Why settle? We asked Kat Van Kirk, PhD, a licensed marriage and family therapist and certified sex therapist, to come up with some newer, sweeter ways to top off an already scrumptious sesh.

Miss New Booty
- Why it’s hot: Van Kirk says this one can actually be more comfortable for your finish than doggy style since you equally share the weight of this position. You can use your arms to control some of the movement, or you can let him take control as you hold yourself up.
- How to do it: Place your hands on the floor and have him pull your waist so your legs are on either side of his hips.
- Why it’s hot: This reverse missionary angle is great for your O because it allows for more stimulation of the pubic mound and entire clitoral area, says Van Kirk.
- How to do it: Lie on your back, and have him straddle you while facing your feet (sort of like 69). Then, lift your legs to wrap them around his back. Raise your hips so he can enter you. Next, grab his butt to help him slide back and forth. Ta-da!
- Why it’s hot: You’re on top, so you’re in charge of your own finale. With you in control, you can guide the movements, speed, and depth, and he’s hands-free to stimulate your hot spots. Plus, he’ll get a full frontal view of when you finish.
- How to do it: Have him lie on his back while you lie on top and straddle him. Lean forward slightly so that your hands are on either side of his head.
- Why it’s hot: When you’re looking for maximum pleasure with minimal effort, this is the position to try. It’s got the hotness of doggy with him entering behind you, and you can easily touch your clit while he’s going at it. Many women are surprised by how quickly they finish in this position, says Van Kirk.
- How to do it: Bend at the waist as he stands behind you and enters you from the rear.
- Why it’s hot: Watching him take over in this position can be super hot. He’s doing most of the work, you get a great view of his bod, and you can also up the fun by having him wear a vibrating penis ring to stimulate your clit (you can also take matters into your own hands with this 20 Function Bullet Vibrator from the Prevention Shop.) Once you’ve had your finale, it’s also a great position for eye contact and kissing, post-O.
- How to do it: Lie on your back. Have him get on top and enter you.
