Best positions for yoga sex

Here, we have gathered some of the best yoga positions for sizzling sex that you can try with your partner on the yoga mat or in the bedroom.

Wheel pose (Urdhva Dhanurasana). How to do it: From a standing position, with your two feet flat on the even ground, you bend your knees and roll your torso backward until you reach the floor, with your hands evenly flat on the ground. Your heels should be close to your sitting bones, your elbows spread, and your palms on the floor, forming a straight line with your head. With this pose, you form an inverted U shape with your body.

Why it’s great: This pose will wow your partner and will surely make him think you’re a freak in the bedroom. This pose, despite its complicated look, is very versatile. Depending on yours and your partner’s strength and flexibility, either of you can be on the top or bottom, or your partner can stand up between your legs. This position allows your partner to reach you in angles you’ve never thought possible, and effectively rub against your G-spot for maximum pleasure.

Chair pose (Utkatasana). How to do it: This position is great for males, especially those with strong leg and thigh muscles. You will assume a sitting position, with your feet flat and parallel to each other on the ground. Your knees should be slightly apart as well, and your buttocks perpendicular to the floor. Your back should be straight, and your arms straight out. If you can pull this off for a minute, then you’re awe-inspiring, but if you can’t, you can use blocks or a chair for support.

Why it’s great: This is a great position for flexing—and showcasing—your muscles to your girl. She can straddle you over your thighs, giving her full control, so she can achieve the best orgasms. Another variation is your girl can do the chair pose while you sit on a chair or stool and she can bounce over you, like a sitting reverse cowgirl.

Downward-facing dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana). How to do it: Start this pose on all fours, with your hands just a few inches in front of your shoulders. Your knees should be positioned under your hips. Whether on the floor, or on the bed, you can press your palms flat on the surface, and then press your hips upward, toward the ceiling. You know you’re doing it right when your body forms an upside-down “V.”

Why it’s great: this pose is great for improving your core—while having sex—and it’s not as complicated as it seems. Whether for penetration or foreplay, as a woman, you are opening yourself up to your partner, giving him full access. This also allows for maximum stimulation of the sensitive part of your vaginal wall, especially your G-spot. Not only that… it’s also perfect for anal intercourse.
