You’d be surprised to learn how many sexual positions out there can give you maximum pleasure and send you into the climax of your dreams.

Check out 7 of the sexiest and steamiest sexual positions to try this Valentine's Day that are guaranteed to keep you firmly planted between the sheets!
The Sensual Spoon
Cosmopolitan magazine prides itself on the sexual advice it gives to women, especially when it comes to sexy positions. This one is called The Sensual Spoon and it’s described as, “Lying on your side with your guy behind you. Keep both of your torsos in this doze pose and lift your top leg. Have him shift his lower body into a half-kneeling position, entering you from behind.” Very sensual indeed!
Curling your limbs around each other is a very romantic way to have sex because you are able to touch and feel each other, while maintaining a very close distance. Website Your Tango takes this position further, by giving it a name (Intimately Intertwined) and a steamy description. Here is what you do, “Kneeling, he straddles your left leg while you bend your right leg next to his body. You'll both feel deep penetration, plus he can free up his hands to caress and stimulate you. Both partners will find this sex position relaxing, and for women, more relaxation means better, easier orgasms.” This position proves that intimacy and sex are a perfect pair.
The Deck Chair
Many times the sexual positions that men love are quite different from those that women most enjoy. However, Men’s Health magazine offers up a happy medium sure to send you both into an everlasting climax. The Deck Chair is achieved as follows, “Sit with your legs straight out in front of you and your palms behind you on the floor to support your weight. Once she’s sitting in your lap facing you, have her throw her ankles over your shoulders. Rock your hips back and forth together with hers and revel in the new sensations.” After trying this one out, the deck chairs at the beach will never look the same.
Locking your lover down in a heated sexual position is a sexy way to make him stay put, but it also encourages direct stimulation to the parts deep inside that are often hard for some men to reach. GoodtoKnow UK, serves up a position aptly titled the Love Lock and details it like this, “Grab your man round the waist and pull yourself onto his lap in this hot sex position. Then let his hands be as active as his groin.” Oh yeah, this position could definitely get interesting pretty fast.
For some reason, anything butterfly-related always manages to bring about a good time, especially if it involves a sexy, elevated sexual position. SheKnows describes The Butterfly in detail, stating “With the woman on her back and her hips on the edge of the bed, the man penetrates her while standing. She then puts her legs over his shoulders and tilts her hips slightly upward. This gives a wonderful angle for cervical stimulation, with deep penetration that can produce some intense vaginal and uterine orgasms. With more shallow penetration, a man can stimulate the anterior vaginal wall to hit the G-spot.” This position is also ideal for having sex in places other than the bedroom.
Just a glance at the name of this position may bring about intimidation, but no worries because all you have to do is ease into it and maximum pleasure awaits. From The Health Site, The Pretzel position is not as complicated as it sounds, it’s described as, “A position that is not only extremely pleasurable but also highly romantic, as both of you are in the same position and can look into each other eyes. Both of you can go down on one knee (opposite to each other ) and you can enter her by lunging and rocking back and forth.” You could also modify this into other positions, such as the aforementioned Sensual Spoon.
Anything that mentions the word “tiger” in the bedroom is sure to be a memorable sexual experience. The prowling, prancing image of a tiger hunting its prey is sort of the basis of this position, but much more romantic. iDiva offers up the steamy details this way, “Men want to try this position because it makes them feel really powerful. You sit on your fours at the edge of the bed. Like doggie style your man doesn’t crouch, instead stands on the ground and enters you. Keep your knees close together to increase the friction.” Wow! This gives new meaning to “the eye of the tiger,”eh?
