5 Orgasm-Inducing Sex Positions

29 July, 2021

Today is National Orgasm Day and WE ARE HERE FOR IT! Let’s be real: even as old stigmas are being broken down today, there’s still a lot of taboo around female sexual desire and a wide orgasm gap between men and women. Why?

Maybe because we’ve been following a staid moral contract from the Victorian age. The truth is most likely a mix of many, many things that have resulted in women’s orgasms not being a top priority. But your orgasms are our top priority, our raison d'être. You deserve great sex and great orgasms because orgasms don’t just feel incredible, they do amazing things for your health and wellness. This National Orgasm Day, we’re encouraging you to honor your orgasm, explore your body, take time for sexual self-care, and own your moan. To help get you there today (maybe even more than once today 😉), we’ve gathered up a few favorite sex positions that reportedly make it easier to orgasm.

This National Orgasm Day, we’re encouraging you to honor your orgasm, explore your body, take time for sexual self-care, and own your moan.

Missionary

We know you probably weren’t expecting this one, but you can’t go wrong with this reliable standby. And hey, it often gets unfairly criticized for being boring and lacking imagination, but the missionary position gives you lots of clitoral contact. So there’s that truly toe-curling stimulation if done well. If you aren’t already, get on top so you have even more control over how you are stimulated during missionary. Here’s a twist. If you want to mix things up: sit up halfway and lift your butt, then lean back ever so slowly. Not so predictable and boring anymore, are you missionary position?

Reverse Cowgirl

Take-charge of your pleasure with your partner on their back and their hands free to explore. Straddle your partner, facing their feet and go to town. The awesome thing about this position is you set the pace fast or slow and you also decide how deep penetration goes and which angle best stimulates the clitoris. Dial up the intensity by leaning forward and grabbing your partner’s shins or ankles.

The Lotus

The Lotus comes from the tantric sex position yab yum. There’s evidence that this position has been in existence for thousands of years, showing up everywhere from Tibetan Buddhism to legendary singer Sting’s bedroom. The Lotus is all about having a deep spiritual connection. In this pose, there’s heavy eye contact, hot breaths close to each other and mindfulness. Here’s how the Lotus works: your partner sits cross-legged. You sit on top and wrap your arms and legs around them. With your chests pressed together you create a hugging motion, as your bodies blissfully meld together. Penetration is part of the story here, but it’s not really the end goal. The focus is doing what turns you on and being close together. Since you are on top, you can use your hips and legs to grind on your partner.

Some argue that sex in 2020 focused on “personal pleasure and genuine connection, having more meaningful, deeper connections during sex that connect our mind, body and soul together.” (Time will tell if that continues in 2021 or if we’ll revert to lots of casual sex to make up for more than a year in lockdown.) The Lotus position definitely checks all the boxes for deeper connections. Because you’re meeting literally face-to-face, you and your lover are physically and emotionally open to each other, which can ignite some explosive sexual energy.  

Scissor

First, lay on the edge of your bed with your partner standing in front of you holding your legs up. As he penetrates you, he crosses your legs wide, and then over each other, with a scissor movement. The sensation moves from tight fit to deep penetration and the chance for multiple orgasms is high.

Doggy Style

This is a very popular sex position for a number of reasons. You’re on all fours… maybe you’ve done this one? What’s great about it is that you or your partner can easily stimulate the clitoris during penetration. Maybe even introduce a vibrator into the mix! If a G-spot does in fact exist, although the jury is still out on that one, this position enables the penis to better stimulate that area.

Orgasms are as unique as the people having them, so try these and if they don’t work, keep experimenting to find the positions that work for you. The trying and testing and playing is all part of the tantalizing fun to figure out what works best for you and your body. And remember: Everyone is different, everyone’s sexual appetite is different, and everyone’s sexual fulfillment is different and equally valid. This National Orgasm Day, embrace your sexuality and own your moan! You are in charge of your own sexual destiny, and we hope you have many pleasure experiences that make you moan in the moment and make your insides tighten up when you think back on them and anticipate the next one. On that note, have you tried Vella Women's Pleasure Serum?
