How to do it

Classic Missionary is just that – a classic. Although this position has been used since the beginning of time, don’t be fooled into thinking it has to be boring. The Classic Missionary sex position doesn’t need much explanation, but if you’re unsure about nailing this one, we’ve got you covered.

Have your partner lie back on the bed, sofa or floor, and climb on top of them. With their legs slightly spread, position yourself over them in almost a press-up position. From there you can penetrate, thrusting your hips for more speed and pleasure.

Why should I do it?

Classic Missionary is an absolute staple of the library of sex positions – everyone has done missionary at some point! It’s a great starting point, gently easing yourself in and enjoying the intimacy and closeness it provides. What’s more, Classic Missionary is the ideal position to move into other, slightly more advanced positions. Even from this basic position, you can try lifting yourself up and putting your partner’s legs on your shoulders for deeper penetration.

Make it hotter

Another great thing about Classic Missionary is the scope for using toys to make it hotter. As your bodies are so closely pressed together in this position, it’s ideal for using a vibrating toy to add some extra sensations. A vibrating cock ring will press directly onto your partner’s clitoris or balls and provide waves of pleasure throughout.

Perfect Next Position

Classic Missionary is a great starting point to lead you into The Hard Lean. Just get your partner’s legs up over your shoulders, move into a kneeling position and prepare for that deep penetration. Find out more here.
