You say: 'It's the easiest way to reach orgasm'

You say: 'This one rocks. We love doing it in the bathroom'
Great forA quickie in the afternoon.

Fun rating: 3/5The excitement of being pushed up against a wall will really get you both going.

You say: 'This one got the thumbs up - very comfortable and it really hit my G-spot '
Great forBoth of you
How does it work?The man sits on a chair with his legs outstretched in front of him. You climb aboard and stretch your legs out straight behind him. He clings onto your arms and you lean back holding on to him for support. You're in control, so then push back and forth on top of him as fast or as slow as you like.
The turn-onsHe gets a good view and you get deep penetration.
The turn-offsIt might be uncomfortable for you to keep your legs stretched out for any length of time
No.7 - The Good SpreadWoman on top with a slight twist - you're in total control

Great for...Mind-blowing sex with you in the driver's seat.

Difficulty rating: 3/5You might need to do a bit of limbering up first!

No.6 - Kneeling FoxMen love this one, because it's a bit like the doggy position - sadly you're not facing each other.
You say: 'This one got the thumbs up - very comfortable and it really hit my G-spot '
Great forDeep penetration.
How does it workYou get on your hands and knees and lean forward on your arms. He kneels, grabs hold of your waist and enters you from behind.
The turn-onsMost men loves the thrill of a 'doggy-style' position so this is bound to get him going.

Difficulty rating: 2/5He's working the hardest but you've got to keep in sync with him.
Fun rating: 3/5You'll have really fast and thrilling sex that will leave both your hearts racing.
No.5 - Melody MakerIt may look odd, but this gives you an amazing rush when you reach orgasm.
You say: 'woah - cant thank you enough for this one '
Great forA mindblowing orgasm
How does it work?This one's a bit more tricky than normal and you'll probably need a small footstool or comfy chair. Sit on the chair sideways and lean backwards so your head is pointing downwards.
Now get your fella to kneel between your legs and enter you. You may find it helps if you hold hands so that he can support you
The turn-onsHaving your head pointing down means that you'll get an amazing rush of blood, especially when you reach orgasm.
The turn-offsIt can feel a bit odd at first and you may not be able to stay there too long
Difficulty rating: 3/5Not that difficult once you get used to it, but the initial leaning back can be tricky.
Fun rating: 5/5The strength of the orgasm makes this one a real firecracker!
No.4 - The Man TrapThis is a slight twist on the missionary with you doing a little extra rubbing and wrapping.
You say: 'I thought this was a bit boring untill I had a quick orgasm'
Great for...Orgasmic, week-night sex, when you've not got the energy to really go for it.
How does it work?We're all for banning the missionary position on goodtoknow, but we have to admit this one's not too far off. You lie on the bed and he gets on top of you. He then thrusts in and out but while doing so, you wrap your legs around his.
It gives you a bit more power to control his speed and rhythm and if you arch your back slightly, you'll really start to feel the benefits.
The turn-onsHe gets to do his stuff but he'll get aroused by your legs entwining around him. The feeling of him rubbing against you should also give you a really powerful orgasm.
The turn-offsIf you're trying to break away from him-on-top, you-on-bottom sex then this is maybe not that different. But there's no harm in easing yourself into some of the more adventurous moves.
Difficulty rating: 1/5All you have to do is lie there and catch him in your man-trap!
Fun rating: 2/5An oldie, but a goodie.

You say: 'Wow - I'm getting excited just thinking about this position'
Great for:Hitting a woman's G-spot
How does it work?The woman lies on her stomach with her hips swivelled sideways and her legs bent. Now the man kneels between his partner's legs and leans forwards with his arms on either side of her. Now it's up to the man to do the work.
The turn-ons:As its name suggests, this position is designed to hit your G-spot - that's good enough for us!
The turn-offs:Some women might not enjoy being face down and not able to look at their fella.
No.2 - Magic BulletA bit athletic and you get an amazing rush of blood to your head
You say: 'Phew - I thought this would be a bit tricky, but we both found it easy. 9/10 for us'
Great for...Hitting your g-spot.
How does it work?Lie face up on the bed with your legs straight up in the air. Your man kneels on the bed behind you, holds onto your legs for leverage and thrusts!

Great for...Those days when you don't have the energy to really go for it.
