Sex positions for G-spot stimulation

Hitting the right spot isn't that hard — we promise! Ashley Britton/SheKnows

It’s one of the biggest debates in sexual pleasure: Is there a G-spot or isn’t there? If you’re a believer (like I am), the G-spot, or Grafenberg spot, is that magical spot located about an inch inside the vaginal opening on the upper wall (closest to your tummy). When stimulated, this almond-size area swells and becomes tingly. It’s near the urethra so it may prompt the urge to urinate — that’s perfectly normal.

According to Planned Parenthood, though all people with a vagina have this tissue, it doesn’t work for everyone in exactly the same way. For instance, many notice no difference in sensation one way or the other, and about 10 percent ejaculate when their G-spots are stimulated. If you’re interested in trying to see if you can squirt or really like the feeling of penetration, these positions will totally be your vibe. Plus you can always use toys to supplement the experience in a really mind-blowing way.

The great thing about sex that hits the G-spot is that, in most positions, it allows the vagina-haver to control the depth and speed of penetration (because everyone’s tastes differ!). In many cases, this allows for a hands-free situation for their partner, so let those hands wander.

As with all sex and sexual positions, be sure to give your partner plenty of feedback so you can figure out what feels best. Sex isn’t a by-the-manual thing and it trying out a position from the Internet only really works when you’re willing to communicate and modify to make it perfect for you and your partner(s).

Here are six positions that encourage just the right angle, depth and control for mind-blowing G-spot orgasms.

You Wanna Be On Top?

What is it?  Have your penetrating partner sit at a 45-degree angle. This works best against a wall, headboard or other hard surfaces. Straddle them and lower yourself down and onto them. 

Why it’s great This position allows the partner being penetrated to control the action and move their body as they please, essentially using the penis as a sex toy. The person with the penis can lie back and enjoy their partner riding them.

Sexy Spooning

What is it? Lie on your side and have the penetrating partner be the big spoon. Bring your knees up slightly and have them enter you from behind. 

Why it’s great This position allows for deep, hands-free penetration and the perfect angle to hit the front wall of the vagina where the G-spot is. Bonus: It also allows for easy clitoral access, so use hands or bring a vibrator into the mix.

Rocking Horse

What is it?  The rocking horse position is when the person who is penetrating sits cross-legged and leans back, either on a wall or supporting themselves with their hands. Their partner kneels over their lap and starts hugging them with their thighs as the vagina-owner starts to lower themselves down.

Why it works “This position has excellent clitoral access, and it’s great for G-spot stimulation,” psychotherapist and therapeutic relationship coach Rachel Wright tells SheKnows. “This gives control to both of you, but with different aspects. Women (or ‘top’), it gives you control on top for speed and penetration. And men (or ‘bottom’), it gives you full control to touch and tease your partner while they try to control other things.”

Doggy-Style

What is it?  Get down on your hands and knees and spread your legs apart so your partner can penetrate you from behind. The higher you tilt your butt, the more directly your partner will hit the magical front vaginal wall.

Why it’s great “This position allows for deep penetration, plus the penis pushes directly against the G-spot, and your guy can wrap his arms around you, giving him direct finger access to your clitoris,” Laurel House, resident sex expert for My First Blush, tells SheKnows.

Criss Cross

What is it? This sex position works best on a bed, but if you’re feeling more adventurous, try a dining room table. Either way, you should be roughly hip height for your partner. Drape your legs over the edge and have your partner stand in front of you. Lift your legs into the air, then crisscross them into an X and rest your ankles on your partner’s shoulders. 

Why it’s great If you like a position in which your partner is in control, you’ll love this. Hold onto the end of the bed or table and have your partner hold onto your legs for the deepest thrusting. You may want to put a pillow under your hips for added comfort, especially on hard surfaces.

Modified Cowgirl

What is it?

Have your penetrating partner lie flat, then rest on top of them instead of sitting up or straddling them.  

Why it’s great

Like most penetrate-ee on top positions, the modified cowgirl allows them to control their own clitoral stimulation and therefore their orgasm. It also allows them to have eye contact and feel their partner’s entire body against them.
