What are the best 15 sexual positions for her pleasure?

There are so many different sexual positions out there, and each one can have a different impact on her pleasure.

However, if you want to guarantee that she's going to be feeling the best possible sensations from every position that you get into, then these 15 are listed in order of how pleasurable they are for women:

1. Doggy style

Doggy style is the absolute best position for women because it allows them to experience deeper vaginal penetration.

With doggy style, she can either choose to remain still or push back against you as you thrust inside of her, allowing you to go even deeper inside of her than in most other positions.

She also has complete control over how fast and deep you go, so she can adjust herself to make things even more pleasurable for you both.

To perform the doggy style position, she positions herself on all fours and you enter her from behind.

2. The missionary position

Missionary is one of the most popular and common sex positions for a reason, it's great for both partners.

However, it's especially good for women because it allows them to have more control over the pace and depth of thrust.

This means that they can hit their G-spot easily, making it one of the most pleasurable sexual positions around.

Missionary position simply consists of one partner lying on their back while the other partner enters them from above while lying flat on them and using their arms for support.

Plus, it also gives them a great view of your face and body, making it even more intimate.

3. Cowgirl position

Cowgirl is another great beginner sex position for women because it allows them to be in control of the action.

She can ride your penis at her own pace, going up and down on her knees as she sees fit.

Cowgirl can be an especially pleasurable position because it allows her to control the angle that you're entering her, making it easier for you both to hit all of your erogenous zones and reach orgasm.

The cowgirl can be done by having the woman on top, facing you, while the man lies down and she straddles your waist with her hips and thighs.

The woman can thrust straight up and down or lean slightly forward or backward to control penetration.

4. Reverse cowgirl

Performing the reverse cowgirl involves you laying down while she positions herself so she's facing away from you, and back onto your manhood.

This common position is great for women because they can control the angle of penetration when they're on top.

This means that they have complete control over how deep you go inside of them, which can be especially pleasurable if their G-spot recieves direct stimulation.

Unlike the cowgirl position, reverse cowgirl also allows them to rub their clit while they ride you, making it even more pleasurable.

5. The spooning position

This intimate position is the ideal position for couples who want to get close and personal without expending lots of energy.

It's perfect for those times when you just want to lie in bed and make love, without any vigorous thrusting.

The spooning position allows for gentle, shallow thrusts that are perfect for when you're both just starting to get aroused.

Plus, since you're both lying on your sides, it takes the pressure off of your tired arms and allows you to last longer in bed.

The spooning position requires you to be behind your partner, with her pressed against you, as you both thrust forward while both lying on your sides.

6. Legs up missionary

This position is great for women because they feel completely enveloped by your body, making them feel more secure and safe.

Plus, the angle of penetration lifts their pelvis up slightly, which makes it relatively easy to hit either their G-spot or their A-spot.

To perform the legs up missionary position the woman has to lie down on her back and put her legs up so that they're resting on your shoulders while you face them and lie on top of them in the prone position to penetrate your partner while their legs remain on your shoulders.

7. Standing up against a wall

In this position, you'll both be standing up while she leans against a wall to support herself.

This is an especially good position for women because it keeps them from having to do any work, which means that they can focus on enjoying themselves until orgasm comes naturally or until you both decide to stop.

Plus, there's a certain amount of dominance and power that comes with being in this position, which can be a major turn-on for her although some people prefer to dominate themselves.

She can also wrap a leg around you to shift the position of penetration. If you're strong enough or have some support, she can lift both feet off the ground and wrap them around your waist as you support her and continue penetration.
