Best sex positions - Close Encounter

This position puts you face-to-face, increasing the intimacy of the moment.

How to do it...

He sits in a chair (one without arms) or on a sofa, she climbs on top, bending her legs behind her.

Why it's great...

Penetration is deep and she can grind her clitoris against him. It's also a winning position if one partner is taller or heavier than the other – there's no squishing!

You could try...

If the chair isn't too high, it may be easier for her to thrust if she puts her feet flat on the floor.

Make it even better...

Add one (or more!) of these toys when trying this position to take your orgasms to the next level.


This position can be adapted for female-female couples with the use of a strap-on dildo. It's also a great position to try for anal sex (and add a male masturbator into the mix if the receiver has a penis).
