Sex can suit any mood or moment from intimate and romantic to hot and rough. That doesn’t mean you have to incorporate any strange fantasies, difficult positions, or floggers. All you have to do is tweak the sex positions you already know for an unforgettable romp. (Explore our guide to rough sex if you have yet to try it out.) Need some ideas? Check out these sexy suggestions from Emily Morse, Ph.D., founder and host of the Sex with Emily podcast, and then try them with your partner tonight. You’ll be breaking barriers, one spank and hair pull at a time.
Even though she’s upside down here, you both have control of the motion and depth of penetration during seated wheelbarrow. Her part might be more of a workout, but the extra sweat between you both just makes it hotter (and rougher). If you want to take control, use your hands for some spanking or anal play.
How to do it: Have her place her hands on the floor and pull her waist up so her legs are on either side of your hips.
THE HOT SEAT
The hot seat is super intimate, because you can wrap your arms around her to hold her tight, but you’re also hands-free to explore her body. Try squeezing her nipples or grabbing onto her hair.
How to do it: Sit on the edge of a bed or a chair and have her lower herself onto your shaft, facing away from you.
Doggy-style is a hot position for both of you. With some tweaks, you can up the rough factor by hair pulling, spanking, and positioning yourselves in front of a mirror so you can both watch.
How to do it: Have her get on all fours and kneel behind her. Enter her from behind while holding her hips or boobs.
With her on top, she has full control of the movement, depth, and speed—and you’ll love seeing her body in action. To kick it up a notch, have her tie your hands together so she can really take control. Another option: Wear a penis ring (like this one) for maximum mutual stimulation.
How to do it: Have her straddle you with her knees bent. Enjoy the view.
If you really want to get her going, have her squat over you face so you can orally stimulate her.
Reverse cowgirl combines the hotness of doggy with the sexy dominance of her on top. You’re hands-free here to explore and to get a little rough. This one is also ideal for anal play, since you have easy access.
How to do it: Lie on your back while she straddles you, facing away from you.
