5 Super Easy (And Fun!) Sex Positions for Beginners
Sex should be about pleasure and not trying to contort your body into the most challenging positions possible. It should also be accessible for all of us—non-disabled or disabled.
If you're a regular at Kinkly, you know we love suggesting all manner of sex positions for you to try out—from the simply wonderful to the extremely wild. (And if you're new here, welcome!)
But while getting into complex positions and (hopefully) getting the most out of them can be a kick and a half, sometimes you have to appreciate the basics. Plus, not all sex positions are accessible to all bodies—and that's totally OK!
So, we've put together this list of simple sex positions. These positions are great for newcomers to partner sex and they can make for an amazingly effective way to better understand your body as well as your partner's—particularly how well they fit together.

Have fun getting back to basics with these five super easy and oh-so-pleasurable positions for beginners—or anyone who understands sex doesn't have to be complicated or demanding to be amazing:
1. Missionary Position
Unfortunately, our first entry has received a very undeserved bad rap for being "unimaginative."
To which we say we say (excuse our French) poppycock!
Please don't buy into all that negativity towards the missionary position. There's a lot of pleasure to be had with one partner stretched out on their back and another partner on top of them!
Along with both sets of genitals receiving mutual attention, Missionary allows for kissing, caressing chests, and playing with and/or sucking nipples—and after things reach their orgasmic peak, it's easy-peasy for everyone to drift into a sensually relaxing embrace. Missionary position is also one of the easiest and most accessible positions for disabled or people with chronic pain because it doesn’t require a lot of moving around. From an accessibility standpoint, we give missionary an A+.
How to Make It Better
A simple sling or strap can do wonders for maneuvering into a bunch of different, and far more comfortable, penetrative angles. Also, talk with your partner(s) about what is and isn’t possible if you live with disability and chronic pain.
The Super Sex Sling from Sportsheets is ideal for this very thing.
2. Doggy Style Position
Woof woof! There's a good reason why this position remains at the top of practically everyone's favorites list: It provides excellent access to the receiver's genitals or anus—which is why it's one of the most popular anal sex positions.
Moreover, with the use of some strategically placed pillows under the receiving partner, you can make it easier for them to get whatever the penetrator's packing.
If there's a downside to the doggy style position, it's that both parties can't smooch or have access to each other's chest or nipples. Though, considering everything else it has going for it, that's a more-than-fair trade off. We can also appreciate that, for a lot of people with chronic pain and disability, this position is just not possible no matter what you do—and that is OK.
How to Make It Better
The penetrating partner can increase the intensity of their thrusts by gripping their partner's thighs.
If you're worried this might put undue strain on their hips, you might try using a doggie strap, like this one from Sportsheets. The doggie strap provides more leverage for the penetrating partner, making this already fantastic position extra exciting and ultra-comfortable.
3. Scissor Position
Despite occasionally being a tad tricky to get into if one partner is equipped with a penis, the scissor position is a whole lotta fun.
For example, people with lower back problems often swear by how it takes a lot of strain off that body part—and when everyone's done or ready for a break, Olympic-certifying gymnastics aren't necessary to get out of it.

To begin, both parties lay together, either facing each other or with one of them facing in the opposite direction.
Then, line up everyone's genitals to where they make as much pleasurable contact as possible.
