Go Deep! The 8 Best Sex Positions for Deep Penetration
Looking for a good, old-fashioned, super-intense boning? It's time to go deep!
As a sex writer I've both read and written more than my fair share of sex position articles. Some give suggestions for stimulating specific regions (20 Positions for G-Spot Glory!), others offer solutions to sexual stumbling blocks (10 Positions For Couples of Wildly Different Heights!), and there are always the ones that promise more pleasure than physically possible (5 Positions GUARANTEED To Give EVERYONE Multiple Orgasms - Even People In The Next Room!!).
I understand, though, that it's not always as complicated as all that. Sometimes you just want some good, straight-forward, intense boning and often that calls for super-deep penetration. I've got you covered! I’ve put together a list of eight of my favorite positions for when you want to get down on it. Really want to go to town? Add a LELO sex toy and buckle up for some intense pleasure. Check it out!

Missionary Plus Sex Positions
These positions are all variations on the standard missionary position.
Flying V Position
To be filed under “keep it simple” the Flying V position (also known as the Happy Scissors) is as easy as they come. Lie on your back with your hips elevated (use pillows or a positioning aid if you like a little lift) and allow your partner to kneel between your legs. Your partner then takes one of your ankles in each hand and holds you legs wide apart while thrusting. If you’re feeling super-helpful you can even hold your own legs, giving your partner the freedom to plant their hands and get more thrusting leverage.
The LELO Tor 2 cock ring can give deep penetration positions a little extra buzz
Take it to the next level: Want to make you V fly even higher (sorry, I couldn't resist)? Add in a toy like the LELO Tor 2. A super stretchy cock ring with a powerful built in vibrator and six stimulation modes, it can enhance the experience for both of you.
The G-Whiz Position
This one's called the G-Whiz (or the anvil) and it's for the flexible among you. Lie on your back and raise your legs. You partner kneels in front of you, so your legs can rest on their shoulders. Your partner then leans over you, causing your legs to come back toward you and your hips to lift, making for super-deep penetration.
For a different twist, place the soles of the feet on your partner’s chest instead of extending the legs. The penetration will still be really deep and your legs won’t have to stretch so far. This can also work as a beginner anal sex position as you control the depth by how straight or bent your legs are.
The Hugo prostate massager from LELO makes deep penetration positions even more intense.
Take it to the next level: You know what could feel spectacular in this position? Prostate stimulation! You know what no one can do as the penetrator in this position? Comfortably reach their own prostate. Thank goodness we live in the future and have awesome toys like the LELO Hugo with its two powerful motors and convenient remote control! Have your partner insert the Hugo (and maybe hand you the remote) before you get in position. Then turn it on and enjoy!
For deep penetration that lets you and your partner see each other (remember your partner, they’re so cute!) try the Butterfly Position! Lie on your back with your bum right at the edge of the bed or a sturdy table. Your partner stands in front of you, lifts your hips so your legs can rest on their shoulders and then holds onto to your legs while thrusting. Because you aren’t right on top of one another, you can check each other out while you get sexy!
The LELO Tiani 3 couples vibrator makes deep penetration positions even better.
Take it to the next level: This position is ideal for adding in some clitoral stimulation but your partner's hands are a bit busy and maybe you don't want to have to do it yourself. Enter a couple's toy! The LELO Tiani 3 features two arms, one that vibrates inside you and the other that stimulates the clitoris. It even has a remote control to easily switch modes. One last bonus: because it is worn in the vagina during intercourse, your partner will get the benefits of the vibration too!
From Behind Sex Positions
If you want your depth to come from behind, these are for you!
Flat Doggy Style Position
The Flat Doggy Style Position (or Speed Bump) is one of my all-time favorites and not just because I’m lazy .. but, seriously, this is a great position if you’re lazy! Lie down on your belly with pillows or sex positioning wedge under your hips with your legs together.
Your partner will then straddle you on their knees. The angle of entry here can be adjusted based on where your partner sets up their knees or angles their chest - play with that! They can adjust the angle of entry by where they put their knees. If you want to take a more active role, have your partner stay upright so you can reach back and grab their hands. Now they can use your hands to get extra thrusting leverage.
