These positions require unusual strength, agility, and concentration. In other words, they aren't for amateurs.
If you’re a sex geek like me, you’re probably familiar with all the different positions for sex and have tried, well, most of them. I just found some sexual positions that confounded and intrigued me. Positions that, unless you had mad skills of strength, agility, and concentration while sexually aroused, you wouldn’t be able to pull off. So, for those adventurous (or curious) people out there, here are six impractical positions for sex ninjas. I've rated them in difficulty from 1 to 10. (Looking for something less ambitious? Check out these 8 Entry-Level Sex Positions.)
Also note that while I recognize that (most of) these positions can be done by two men or two women, for clarity I chose to use terms that apply to the writer and interspersed generic terms such as "performer" and "receiver."

In this acrobatic position, the receiver stands on his head, against a wall, using his hands to steady him (like he’s about to do a cartwheel). The performer stands in front of him with her back to him and her feet at either side of his head. She then bends over and allows her partner to insert his penis. Yes, really.
Challenge: In this position, the male partner has to remain balanced, breathing, and relaxed enough to stay hard AND not faint from the blood rushing to his head. His partner doesn't have it easy, either. She has to set the momentum while keeping him at an angle that’s comfortable for both while not tipping him over.
Pair of Tongs
In this position, the woman lays on the bed sideways with half her torso hanging over the side of the bed, supporting herself with one arm on the floor. (For an added challenge, do this freestanding, as shown below.) The man stands facing her and grabs hold of her waist. He then uses his leg to hold down her lower leg, while he holds her upper leg and inserts his penis.
Challenge: The woman is going to have to have fantastic upper body strength and balance to stay steady. Her partner won't exactly be slacking here. He'll have to support much of her weight, too. It might just be more exciting than a typical yoga class, though.
The Big and Little Dipper
These two require strength, but they aren't entirely unrealistic. In the Big Dipper position, the man sits on the couch, stretches his arms behind him and puts his feet on a coffee table or ottoman. The woman straddles him, while he uses his arms to push himself up and down, hence the name. Then there’s the Little Dipper, in which these positions are essentially reversed. The man lays supine on top of a big pillow on the floor next to the couch. The woman assumes the position of the male in the Big Dipper except she rises and falls onto her partner's erect penis.
Challenge: The person with the penis (or a strap-on!) has to be in impeccable shape to do what your personal trainer might call "triceps dips" for any length of time. In addition, the person doing the work has to have the concentration of a monk to remain balance and continue to hit the target. There are way too many opportunities to miss here and thrust a buttock down on an erect penis. And that, my friends, is how your evening turns into date night at the emergency room.
The Overpass (or the Torture Twister)
The fact that this one has the word "torture" in its name should provide a hint as to its difficulty. Here, the woman (or receiver) lays on her back and lifts her feet up and over her head so her toes touch the floor behind her head. Her thighs are resting against her torso and her knees are by her ears. The man (or the performer) straddles himself over the woman’s genitals, putting one foot by the receiver's head and one by her side or back. The performer then thrusts, like he’s getting up and down off a chair, into the anus or vagina.
