6 Super Fun (and Super Easy!) Oral Sex Positions
Published: DECEMBER 8, 2022
Banish mediocre sex! These oral sex positions put a new spin on giving head.
The road to mediocre sex is paved with repetition. Unless "mediocre" is the kind of sex you want to have, it's important to keep mixing things up, trying things out and approaching things from new angles (sometimes literally!).
When it comes to oral sex, you have so many different opportunities to explore your partner’s body. Why waste them on the same old, same old?
So, here are some oral sex positions designed to give you a new spin on mouth lovin’.
With three positions designed to please partners with penises (i.e., fellatio positions) and three positions designed to please partners with vaginas (i.e., cunnilingus positions), there’s a little something for everyone! Enjoy!
For Folks with Penises
If You're Giving It: This is perhaps, logistically, the best position from which to achieve the elusive deepthroat. It puts the mouth and throat into one long line, enabling you to more easily take more of your partner's genitals or strap-on into your mouth.
Because your partner has so much freedom to move here, use your hands to steer the motion and keep things comfortable for you. Relax your throat and enjoy the sensation of balls on your eyelids! ;-)
If You're Getting It: If you are receiving in this position, be aware you might need to kneel, squat or otherwise adjust your height to line up with your partner’s mouth. Also, be sensitive and aware so as not to choke your partner. It’s a good idea to observe a "tap out" hand signal that indicates when your partner needs a break.

If You're Giving It:Here, your partner lays on one side and lifts their top leg. You place your head between their legs and the rest of your body behind theirs so your head rests on their thigh. Your partner lays back while you get to work. This position gives you unfettered access to the penis and testicles and great angles to really get into it. You can even wrap your arms around their legs for more leverage.
If You're Getting It: If you are receiving in this position, you can just lie back and enjoy it. Or, try reaching back with your top arm to touch your partner.
If You're Giving It: This one's fun, but a little more mellow. Your partner assumes the same position as in the Peepshow position above but, this time, when you place your head between their legs, you flip the whole thing around!
Your legs will end up near your partner’s face and you will, once again, rest your head on their lower thigh. This position is better for taking things a little slower.
If You're Getting It: If you are receiving in this position, your partner’s body is right there in front of you! That means you have great access for manual stimulation or using a body-safe sex toy. With all of that space, larger toys like wand massagers can also play a part here!
For Folks with Vaginas
If You're Giving It: Get your lover to hop on and take this position for a ride. Lay back (perhaps with a pillow or sex prop supporting your head slightly) and have your partner kneel and straddle your face.
In this position, you can offer more stimulation by moving your head (not just your mouth) up and down and side to side as you use your tongue.

If You're Getting It: If you are receiving in this position you can get into a "riding" motion if both you and your partner are comfortable. Be aware of your partner’s ability to breathe, though. This is another good time to employ a "tap-out" signal.
