Classics don’t become classics by accident. They become classics because they’re among the best—because they’re tried, true and reliable.

This holds true for classic sex positions, for sure. They’re the standards, the foundations of sexual bliss that have been around for millennia. People have been enjoying them forever, because their ability to bring the pleasure is proven and perpetual.

And while there is certainly plenty to be said about trying new things and getting a little bit wild with the positions you and your partner try out and adopt as mainstays, it’s important to not forget about these several classic positions.

Here’s why.


1 – Missionary

Missionary is a great way to both start and end sex, and it’s probably the best position there is for engaging in eye contact, which can be one of the most arousing and intimate things you and your partner can engage in during sex. It’s also a great position for kissing while thrusting, if you’re coordinated enough. Additionally, if you’re the woman, missionary can give you a break while the guy does some of the work, and you can just lie back and concentrate on pure, unadulterated enjoyment.

2 – Cowgirl

If you think about it, cowgirl has a lot of the benefits of missionary. It’s great for eye contact and kissing, and it’s an opportunity for the man to take a break and lie back. (Additionally, many men tend to last longer and are able to delay orgasm for a bit if the woman is on top.) It also grants an amazing breast view, and easy access for breast and nipple stimulation.

3 – Doggie

Well, this one is admittedly not great for eye contact (unless you’re both facing a mirror, which, to be honest, takes things to a whole different level and is absolutely worth a shot). For women, the angle when a guy is behind you can result in deeper penetration in comparison with lots of other positions. And for guys? Well, it’s simple: you get to look at a beautiful butt. It’s also (arguable) the best position for hair-pulling, if that’s something you and your partner are into.

4 – Sixty-Nine

You should never forget about foreplay, and the Sixty-Nine position is great for oral and manual pleasure. It just makes sense. Why wouldn’t you want to get while you give, and give while you get? And Sixty-Nining isn’t just a great foreplay method. It’s also a great breather for you and your partner during a sex session—a nice interstitial between penetrative positions.
