When it comes to sitting down sex positions, there are hundreds of possible variations to explore. In this article, we are only going to be talking about the few best positions, what you need to effectively pull them off, and the perfect execution of these positions.

Best Sitting Sex Positions

Armchair lotus

armchair lotus sex position
If your sex preferences can be described as snuggly, then you will love this sex position. The armchair lotus requires you to have a chair (make sure it is comfortable; you do not want your partner to get back cramps). The one who is penetrating should sit in a position where their knees are bent over a corner of the chair, and their butt diagonally positioned over the opposite corner.

The one being penetrated can then sit on top with their legs spread out over both arms of the chair. It means that their legs are also over their partner’s legs in a way that allows them to move up and down easily. The fact that their legs are spread is the part where the lotus art comes in.

This position ensures that you can access the entire length of your partner’s penis at the same time, allowing you to regulate the length you can handle. Continue to move up and down until you find the perfect rhythm.

Once you are satisfied, you are done, just lift your legs slowly and get them back to the ground. You do not want to hurt yourself after such a fix of pleasure.

The Zeal

There could not have been a better match than this sex position and the name it has. The zeal is one of the easiest yet most pleasurable sitting sex positions.

The first step is to get your partner to sit on a chair. It does not need to be an armchair; any chair will do. Once they are seated comfortably, the next step is to make sure that they are comfortable. Make sure that your partner spreads their legs and rests on the backrest of the chair.

The next step is to sit on top of them whilst facing the same direction they are facing. Sit on your partner in a way that your back is against their chest. Your feet must touch the ground, especially if you are not using a chair with armrests, to ensure that you have some sort of balance.

After you are comfortably seated, place your palms on your partner’s thighs, grip tight. Then start grinding back and forth. You can also try to slide up and down. Mixing up the grinding and sliding can be quite pleasurable, but it should be done in a manner that is both synchronized and comfortable for your partner. The secret is establishing the perfect rhythm, and once both of you establish this, stick to it.

Sitting Cowgirl

It is as straightforward as sitting positions can get and need. It is one of the most popular sitting sex positions, and it is for all the right reasons.

The first step is getting your partner to sit down as comfortably as they can whether on a couch, a bed, a chair, or on the floor. It is why it is one of the most popular positions: it is not that demanding, and anyone can pull it off.

Once your partner is comfortable, you can sit on your partner whilst facing them. For the cowgirl position, thrusting up and down works well, but we recommend grinding – it is rather more effective. Make sure your partner wraps their hands around you, with your boobs in their face. If you are athletic, you can try to wrap your legs around them.

Chilli pepper

Chilli pepper is not for the faint-hearted. If you want an explosive orgasm, then the Chilli pepper is the go-to sex position. It might be physically demanding, but believe us, it is worth every bead of sweat.

The best thing to make this position work is to get a chair without an armrest to make sure that your partner can extensively spread their legs. Make sure your partner is seated comfortably, their back firmly pressed against the chair.

Then, sit on them and bend your back, so your hands can touch the ground. It is why your partner needs to spread out their legs as much as they can. It means you won’t struggle with the bending down part.

When all is set, your partner can begin to thrust up and down in a manner that is both rhythmic and actively quick. If there is a position that gets right to the g spot, it is certainly this one. If it gets a little painful, be sure to talk to your partner. The strokes should be quick because it’s a little uncomfortable to stay in this position for a long time.

Sweet sin

If you’re an anal fan, and if you are out to get yourself an anal orgasm, you need to hook up with this position – you certainly need to.
This position is for those dominant women who like to take control during sex. Your partner sits down with their arms spread out, and their hands touching the ground for support. They sit with their knees raised a bit for effective thrusting.

Once your partner is comfortable pivoted, get your first leg over theirs whilst spreading out your arms for support. Then put another leg over your partners and let the anal action begin.

This position puts your anal cavity entrance at an elevated position that makes it easy for your partner to access it. Once you are comfortable, and the penis is inserted, you can start grinding back and forth. The position is quite extreme, and it might be a little painful at first, but eventually, you will ease into pleasure.

This position is sexy in the utmost sense of the word, but it is essential to clean up before and after sex in this position. We can authoritatively assure you that this position is everything that says pleasure.


abyss sex position
This position is all about torture. It’s a mix of both pleasure and a tad bit of pain. If you are a fan of the extreme when it comes to sex, but you still do not want to scar your body for life, this is definitely for you.

The first thing is to get a comfortable chair. For this position, the chair strictly has to have no arms. Your partner sits on the chair, with their legs wide open and their back firmly against the chair.

Once your partner is in this position, sit on your partner’s penis facing them. Then, you lower your back to your partner’s knees. Once you are in this position, your head will be in the air. You can hold your partner’s angles for support.

Once the position is firmly established, your partner can start delivering the strokes. This position is a little risky; your partner must go about his business in a rather gentle manner. There is a chance you might fall, but don’t worry, it’s all part of the pleasure pathway.


backrest sex position
It is another one for the anal sex enthusiasts. If you love doggy, then, well, this is one position you need to try.

The woman sits on a chair with a strong backrest. For this one again, the chair should not have armrests. Once you are seated, throw your legs over the backrest of the chair. Then hold the backrest firmly for support and then wait for the strokes.

Your partner will come from behind and sit on the remaining part of the chair. Your partner will then raise your buttocks, closing their arms around your suspended knees. Then, they will stick their penis into either your vagina or asshole, then the fire strokes begin.

We are sure that if this can’t get you wet, then nothing in the world ever can. This position is a perfect pathway to orgasm, and if done right, you definitely would never switch from it.


harness sex position
For the dominants who want nothing but control during sex, a harness is the best fit.

For this position, your partner sits on a comfortable chair, legs spread out to lower the penis down a bit. It is essential because, in this position, the elevation is everything.

You then sit on your partner’s knees. Touch the ground, and your partner will raise your legs and spread them around their waist. Once your legs are spread out, your partner will then raise you, holding the boob area. Once you are suspended in the air, the stroking begins.

This position is a little risky and requires a little extra care, especially if your partner is sitting on a fitness ball. Make sure the strokes are deep and slow. This position gives your partner full access to your vagina, and there is no need for speedy strokes. If deep lovemaking is your thing, this position will do.

Licking master

We did not forget, oral sex fans out there! When it comes to sitting sex positions, there is something for everyone, and this one is for the die-hard oral sex fans.

For this one, you sit on the edge of a chair and place your hand behind the seat. It will tilt your body back a bit, and the other hand is placed on the knee. One of your legs touches the ground whilst the other rests on the chair seat, explicitly exposing your vagina.

Your partner kneels, with their face directly in front of your vagina. They then get one of their hands on your boob and the other on either your thigh or your vagina. Once they are in this position, they make the tongue work. This position is explosive, and you might fail to control yourself that is why it is essential to communicate with your partner along the way. If this doesn’t satisfy your oral sex cravings, there are some other exciting oral sex positions.

Sex whilst sitting is a whole new dynamic when it comes to sex. You might want to try mastering some easy sex positions first. Practicing them can color your entire sex life differently. With this in mind, it becomes essential to master as many positions as you can, starting with those explained above.
