Flexibility is important to prevent injuries during your workouts, but it can also help you maximize your bedroom game. Being more limber lets you graduate from missionary and woman on top, allowing you to explore what other positions the Kama Sutra has to offer. Want to put your flexibility to the test? Try these seven positions that are better than yoga.
If you’ve got your splits down, this woman-on-top position is for you. Libra allows for deep penetration and clitoral stimulation. Have your partner sit down with their legs apart as you lower down into a side-split position. Hook one hand around their neck for support while their hands hold your butt and waist.
Stand straight with your legs wider than shoulder width for this fun variation on doggy style. Bend over and rest your elbows on the floor as your partner enters you from behind. In Eiffel Tower, you’ll enjoy G-spot stimulation and deep penetration.
Similar to Libra, this position is all about flexibility. To get into Airplane, have your partner sit with their legs apart, then straddle them in a middle split. Their hands will remain on your waist as you use your free hands however you please.
Think of Snake as an inverted take on 69. First, sit on your partner’s neck, with your crotch facing them. Once they get into a comfortable position with their legs apart, have them gently lower the upper half of your body until your head has reached their crotch. With your head turned to the side, hook your arm around one of their legs as they hold you up by your stomach and back.
Take oral sex to the next level with Zombie, a standing-69 position. Your partner should sit with their legs slightly bent apart as you stand with your butt to their face. Straddle your own legs outside of theirs and lean all the way forward until you reach their crotch. This position allows for both anal play and clitoral stimulation.
You may want to stretch before getting into this one, as it requires back and pelvic flexibility. Stand next to a wall and lean forward with your elbows bent on the wall for support. Keep one leg straight while raising the second leg behind you as far as you can. Your partner should then get behind you and rest your raised leg against their body. Once you both get situated, you’ll see why this is called Ballerina.
This face-to-face position allows for plenty of kissing. To get into Barbell, stand facing your partner and raise your most flexible leg onto their shoulder. Your partner should be standing with their legs apart and knees slightly bent. Hug their neck with one hand while wrapping the other around the outside of your leg and onto their shoulder. They should be holding your waist and leg for support.
