If we had to crown the MVP (most valuable position) of sex, it’d be girl on top. You may have a different opinion, but this move puts you in the driver’s seat and lets you take control of your orgasm. So what if we told you there was a way—10 in fact!—to intensify your climax in this position? Believe it, because it’s happening. Just try these simple tricks to take your girl-on-top routine to new heights:
1. Play with Your Boobs
In case you didn’t already know, your breasts and nipples are two of your biggest erogenous zones. Tease, massage, apply pressure—really anything that makes your girls (and you) happy, suggests Ian Kerner, Ph.D., author of She Comes First.
2. Drop It Like a Squat
Straddle your guy in a squat-like stance to give yourself more power to control thrust angle, depth, and strength, says Ava Cadell, Ph.D., author of NeuroLoveology: The Power to Mindful Love & Sex.
3. Bring Reinforcements
Your vibrator is a solid choice, but you can do better—much better. Check out a wearable sex toy for couples (like the Ela Vibrating Ring or the LELO Ida) so that it stimulates both of you, says Jessica O’Reilly, Ph.D., author of The New Sex Bible.
4. Squeeze Your Legs
When you bring your knees closer together, it squeezes your pelvic muscles and allows for greater friction between his penis and your clitoris, says Cadell.
5. Adjust the Rhythm
Sex doesn’t have to be a race (unless you’re looking for a quickie). So switch your speed between fast and slow and change up the depth from shallow to deep to allow for various types of stimulation, says Kerner. You can also move your hips in a circular motion instead of an up-and-down direction, says O’Reilly.
6. Get Kinky
Power is sexy, and in this position, you’re in total control. If you’re interested in a bit of kink, try binding his wrists together and blindfolding him so that he’s unaware of what you’re doing, says O’Reilly. You’ll feel like a master of sex, and he’ll find the surprise element very erotic.
7. Give Yourself a Hand
Here’s an oldie-but-a-goodie: With one hand caressing your boobs, use the other to manually stimulate your clitoris, says Kerner. Something tells us your partner won’t mind being ignored for a moment, so long as they get to enjoy this view.
8. Hold Their Gaze
One of the best ways to have incredible sex is to create smokin’ hot chemistry between you and your partner. So to boost your intimacy, stare into his eyes and lock it down, says Kerner. Research suggests that this kind of contact satisfies both emotional and physical pleasure.
9. Lie Flat on His Chest
Consider this a slight twist on this beloved position: Not only will you feel (and literally be) closer, but the skin-to-skin rubbing of your boobs on his chest only heightens the experience for both of you, says O’Reilly. Plus, the angle of your vagina will stimulate your clitoris in a new, possibly better way.
10. Hit the Floor
Bed, we love you—but you can take this sex position to unfamiliar places to spice things up. Try a soft carpet on the floor, suggests Kerner, who notes that it will provide more support for your thrusts.
