Staring into each other’s eyes and synchronizing your breath for deep, passionate sex can be pretty mind-blowing. But what if you’re looking to literally go deep? You know, as in explore spaces no penis, dildo, or strap-on has gone before? Well, that’s pretty freaking hot, too.
Some sex positions are just better suited for that type of serious penetration. Try these hot moves when you’re in the mood for something a little more intense.
How to: Lie facedown, with your hips slightly elevated (try sticking a pillow underneath them), and spread your legs out straight. Have your partner penetrate you from behind.
Why it works: The lifted hips offer a low barrier to entry, says New York City sex therapist, Dr. Ian Kerner, author of She Comes First. Plus, this one gives great G-spot stimulation, says Kerner.
How to: While your partner is sitting down on a chair or the edge of a bed, you sit in their lap, facing them.
Why it works: Because the legs are wider here, you’re more open to receiving all your partner has to offer, Kerner says. This one is also great because you’re able to controlpace and just how deep you want to go. Plus, this position keeps your hands free to wander all over your partner’s body (or your own).
How to: Have your partner lie down, and you climb on top. Push off your partner’s chest or the bed to control your movement.
Why it works: From this position, says Kerner, you can open your legs wider for a deeper entrance. This move also provides ample G-spot action.
How to: Like classic cowgirl position, you’re on top as your partner lies back, and you push off their body for leverage. The twist here is that your partner assists. By holding your hips or thighs, he supports your weight and rises to meet your movements.
Why it works: This gives you some great G-spot stimulation, and you can go as deep as you like depending on your thrusts, says Kerner. Plus, you get the chance to dominate.
How to: Lie back while your partner lies on top of you, face to face.
Why it works: It’s a classic for a reason—this one gives you deep stimulation, combined with intimacy, says Kerner. (Hello, prime making-out position!) To take it to the next level, raise your legs over your partner’s shoulders.
How to: Get on your hands and knees while your partner kneels directly behind you and enters you from behind.
Why it works: The angle of this position allows for deep penetration and G-spot stimulation, says Kerner. Plus, your partner’s hands are free to stimulate your clitoris or engage in a little nipple action, he says.
How to: Your partner is seated, and you back into their lap, facing away.
Why it works: Since this probably isn’t your go-to position, it’ll feel like a whole new world down there, says Kerner. That newness will make the penetration feel even deeper than it actually is. Plus, not being able to see your partner can be incredibly sexy.

How to: Lie side-by-side in the spooning position, and bend your knees slightly so that your partner can enter you from behind.
Why it works: Your partner has more leverage and support in this position, so they can move their body in a way that gives maximum depth, says Kerner. Plus, your partner can easily wrap a hand around and stimulate your clit while thrusting. This one is also perfect for when you’re both tired but still in the mood.
How to: Lie on your back with legs raised up and out. Get your ankles as far back toward your head as you can. Then, your partner enters you in missionary style.
Why it works: Your legs are spread wide, lending more depth, says Kerner. Plus, from this position, your partner’s pelvis will give you some clitoral stimulation—or you’re free to take that into your own hands.
How to: Your partner sits cross-legged, then you sit on their lap, facing forward. Next, wrap your legs around your partner’s back, pull each other closer, and rock back and forth.
Why it works: This position is all about opening yourself up—especially your legs and hips, he says. Here, you can get deep in more ways than one: Lock eyes with your partner as you climax for added intimacy, says Kerner.
How to: Lie on your right side; your partner kneels, straddling your right leg and curling your left leg around his left side.
Why it works: With this sex position, you get both the physical and emotional depth. You have the deeper penetration of doggy style, while still being able to make eye contact. Bonus: This position is prime for some extra clit action from your partner.
How to: Get on your hands and knees; keeping hips raised, rest your head and arms on the bed. Have your partner enter you from behind.
Why it works: Similar to flatiron, the lifted hips in this position allows super-deep penetration. And if you add the pillow under your pelvis, that can really help your partner target that G-spot.
How to: Standing on one foot, face your partner and wrap your other leg around their waist while they help support you.
Why it works: To really make this position a standout for deep penetration, try putting your raised leg over your partner’s shoulder. This again creates that wide-leg opening. But if that’s too much, this face-to-face position is still a great option.
How to: Get on your hands and feet and have your partner pick you up by the pelvis. Then grip their waist with your thighs.
Why it works: With your legs literally locked around your partner’s hips, this creates a great deep-penetration situation. Not to mention: It’s a serious arm workout.
How to: Get into a partial bridge position, with your weight resting on your shoulders. Your partner enters you from a kneeling position.
Why it works: Your legs are spread wide in this position, which lends to deep thrusts, says Kerner. You can also try throwing one leg up against his shoulder for even deeper penetration.
