Some people like to say that sex is like pizza: Even when it’s bad, it’s still good. But is that statement really true? If you ask the female population, the majority would tell you, "NO!"


To most women, bad sex is bad sex. Period. After all, an overwhelming majority of men could do the horizontal dance with the most rigid woman on the planet and still get a (relatively) happy ending. Unfortunately, women aren’t so lucky. Only 30% of women are able to achieve an orgasm from good sex. You can only imagine the kinds of results bad - or even average - sex might produce.


If you have a female partner and you're really looking to please her, chances are you'll have to put in some real effort between the sheets. Here are five sex positions designed with a woman's pleasure in mind.

A Short Lesson in Female Anatomy

Yes, folks, the G-spot exists, and you can find it. It’s bean-shaped, and it feels like a rough sponge. It is located about one to three inches inside of the vagina. To find it, put your fingers into the vagina, palm side up. You will feel a rough spot on the upper wall of the vagina. Curl your fingers in a "come hither" motion to rub the G-spot.



Since the G-spot is super sensitive (it’s thought to be a bundle of nerves from the clitoris), it can trigger the female orgasm. Since the G-spot is found within (not outside) the vaginal wall, you have to apply a bit of pressure to it in order to hit the sweet spot. While manually stimulating the female G-spot is fairly easy, it is a little bit easier said than done with a penis. Some men have a natural upward bend to their penis which makes G-spot stimulation easier. But while that's a bonus, the position you choose for intercourse can make all the difference.

Modified Doggy Style or Leapfrog



This is a modified version of the doggy style position. This position just changes the angle of penetration and positions the penis to point down toward the G-spot. To increase your partner’s chances of achieving an orgasm, you can reach down and rub the clitoris with your fingers or have her gently grind her clitoral area against the bed.

The Cowgirl and Reverse Cowgirl



Having the woman on top means she gets to control the depth, angle, pressure, and speed of penetration. Depending on the natural angle of your penis, use the cowgirl or the reverse cowgirl position to hit her G-spot. The goal is to have the tip of your penis rub firmly against her front vaginal wall. Ride on!

The Seated Scissors



The Seated Scissors position is similar to the cowgirl position, but allows for a slightly different angle of penetration. For a better view, the bottom partner may prop himself up on his elbows. She may grab her partner's leg for support, or even rub her clitoris against it as she rides.

The Butterfly



The Butterfly gently stimulates the G-spot and is also a "feel good" position for women who love deep penetration.


In this position, the woman lays on her back on the edge of the bed (or a table if you’re feeling adventurous). She'll place her legs over her partner's shoulders and gently tilt her hips upward. A pillow (or sex wedge) underneath her hips may make her more comfortable. (Comfort counts! Read Why 'Comfort Sex' Rocks - and How to Have Some.)

The Afternoon Delight



The Afternoon Delight is a sweet, gentle, and super easy position that won’t tire either partner out. This position is perfect for the woman who takes a while to reach an orgasm. It's also a great position for stimulating the G-spot.



Each woman is different. Not every position will work for your partner. That’s kind of a good thing because you and your partner can experiment a little bit with each position! If that’s not a hot date, then we don’t know what is!
