This position requires the male partner to lift the female partner and carry her while penetrating from the front. The position adds some excitement to your sex life, as well as provides a decent workout!

To enhance this sex position, add a vibrator or a pillow to prop up the female partner’s hips for deeper penetration.
The Broken Eagle
The Broken Eagle is one of the lesser-known sex positions that doesn’t get as much representation in media as the powerhouses Missionary, Cowgirl, and Lap Dance. However, couples who want to try something new without it being too challenging, might want to give this sex position at least one go in the bedroom!
To get into this position, the female partner lies on her back while her partner gets on top. He puts his body between her two legs so one leg goes over the shoulder and the other rests on his hip.

The Piledriver is an interesting, albeit challenging position, where the female partner lies on her back while her partner stands over her and penetrates from above. This position allows for deep penetration and can be incredibly pleasurable for both partners.
The Piledriver will not be doable for some couples, but we recommend giving it at least one shot to see if it works out for you and your partner. If wild and intense is your thing, give the last recommendation on this list a try.

The change in the angle of penetration makes it easier to hit certain spots inside the vagina, leading to a more pleasurable experience. Plus, the male partner can use one or both hands to explore her erogenous zones, such as the clitoris, breasts, and inner thighs.
The Full Nelson
The Full Nelson was coined after the wrestling move of the same name. This less commonly searched sex position is great for couples who want to add adventure to their sex life or maybe explore a bit of dominance and submission.
