2) The Captain How it works: Oh captain, my captain! Have your partner lie on their back and hold their legs up straight in a V-shape. This grants you access to the booty. Enjoy! Why its good: Youve probably figured out by now that angles are the name of the game when it comes to anal. For one, you dont want it to hurt your dick. Two, you dont want your dick constantly slipping out every few seconds. (I purposefully did not include positions that often cause falling out.) This position allows for great angles, and its really hard to slip out if you'er the one penetrating your partner. @alliefolino

3) Crme Brle How it works: Your partner starts by lying on their side. Their arms are raised above them and their legs are bent. You then wrap one of your legs around your partners torso, keeping the other one straight. From there, its simple to start anal penetration. Why its good: This is the perfect position for lazy, morning anal. (Yes, thats a thingask any gay man ever.) It doesnt require a lot of work. Your limbs are intertwined. You can kiss each other's necks. Its the perfect way to start your day. @alliefolino

4) Extended Reverse Cowgirl How it works: Have you partner hop on top of you, facing the opposite direction, like its reverse cowgirl. Then have them lean back, planting the palms of their hands by the sides of your shoulders (or face) depending on the height of your partner. Why its good: Typical reverse cowgirl is actually tough to pull off in anal because of the angle. Most penises are fairly straight when erect, so typical reverse cowgirl will pull the penis forward, which can be painful. Extended reverse cowgirl solves that problem. @alliefolino

5) Fire Hydrant How it works: To start, get into regular doggy style, meaning your partner should be on their hands and knees in front of you. You should then get on your knees behind your partner with your knees inside their legs. You then raise one of your knees to a bent position. This will automatically raise your partners leg on the side. Their thigh will then be resting on yours. When done correcting, it looks like your partner is a dog peeing on a fire hydrant. Why its good: This position really is great for self-identified leg men because it feels like your partners legs are all over you while in this position. @alliefolino

6) Flatiron How it works: Have your partner lie face down on the bed with their knees slightly bent and hips slightly raised. For comfort and to increase the angle of their hips, you can place a pillow under their lower abs. From here, enter them from behind and keep your weight off of them by propping yourself up with your arms. Why its good: You can go really deep in this position, and it feels so damn good. @alliefolino

7) The Golden Arch How it works: Sit on the bed with your legs straight. Have your partner sit on top of you. They should bend their knees on top of your thighs, then both of you can lean back, planting your palms firmly on the bed. From there, get to business. Why its good: This position is different because its easy for both of you to work together to get the motion going as unit, instead of either you or your partner controlling the motion and speed. @alliefolino

8) Happy Baby Pose How it works: While your partners lying on their back, have them throw their bent legs up into the air. Their legs should be slightly past shoulder-length apart, and for this pose to really work, they need to grip the soles of their feet with their hands. (This will help them with stability.) Why its good: Happy Baby Pose not only allows for deeper penetration, if your partner is a vulva-owner, its also an ideal position to engage their clitoris too. With one hand you can stimulate their clitoris, and with your other free hand, you can hold onto them for support. @alliefolino

9) Leapfrog How it works: Have you partner squat down by bending their knees and leaning forward, so their hands are firmly planted on the surface in front of you. (They should look like a frog whos about to take a leap!) Then you get on your knees behind them. Why its good: Squatted positions like leapfrog and squatting cowgirl are great for anal because they allow for deep penetration, even if your partner's booty is on the bigger side. @alliefolino

10) Legs on Shoulders How it works: While theyre on their back, have your partner drape their legs over your shoulders. The angle of their body should be roughly 90-degrees. Why its good: The legs on shoulders position should be considered a staple, as it allows for deep anal penetration. @alliefolino

11) Marvelous Chair How it works: You slouch down far in a chair, to the point where you head is resting on top of the chair itself. Your partner then sits on top of you, riding your reverse cowgirl, with their feet firmly planted on the floor. They actually hold your legs to better angle you. Why its good: Theres something weirdly arousing about being squished by your partner while youre penetrating them. @alliefolino

12) Missionary How it works: In this staple, your partner lies on their back, and you crawl on top of them. From there, you can easily penetrate your partner's behind. Why its good: Its hot for all the reasons that P-in-V missionary is hot. Its intimate, allowing for plenty of kissing and eye contact. @alliefolino

13) The Piledriver How it works: Whoever came up with the name of this position did a great job because it really just describes what youre doing here. Your partner should be on their back, their legs completely thrown behind them, so their body is in a C-shape. You then position yourself over your partners booty and start pile driving. Why its good: You are getting suuuper deep in this position. @alliefolino

14) Seated Anal How it works: You two sit on the bed, face-to-face and close together. Your partner is straddling you, with their legs planted next to your side or wrapped around you. Your legs are resting next to their side. Why its good: This position is up close and personal. Your chests can touch. You can kiss. You can wrap your arms around your partner, holding them tightly. You'll fall in love with this position and each other. @alliefolino

15) Seated Wheelbarrow How it works: You should be seated upright at the end of the bed. Then have your partner get into position with their hands firmly planted on the floor in front of them. Grab your partner by the hips to position them over you. This position is slightly strenuous for the bottom, but you can help them by holding most of their weight. They shouldnt be fully supporting themselves on their hands. Their hands should only be used to steady themselves. Why its good: When done correctly, this position allows for incredibly deep penetration. You can also really control their movement by moving their hips. @alliefolino

16) Sit to Stand How it works: While youre standing upright on the side of the bed, your partner lies on their back, but they have the legs resting on your shoulders. (Their body should be at a 90-degree angle) Why its good: This is yet another position that allows for really deep penetration. Pro tip: Put a pillow under your partners back, so you can angle their anus upwards, more towards you. @alliefolino

17) Spicy Dish How it works: You sit on the edge of the bed with your feet planted on the floor. Then bend back slightly, supporting your upper body on your elbows. Have you partner then sit on your lap with their back towards you. They should put their legs on the corner of the bed for support. You can hold onto your partner's hips. Why its good: The person being penetrated has control in this position. They can give you a little lap danceits a great way to really tease the top. @alliefolino

18) Spooning How it works: While youre both lying on your side, effectively spooning, enter your partner. Why its good: Its easy to increase intensity in a spooning position by wrapping your arms around your partner. If for some reason you're noticing that youre unable to penetrate as deep as you both want, try leaning away from your partner. @alliefolino

19) Squatting Cowgirl How it works: Its similar to traditional cowgirl, where youre on your back, and your partner straddles you. Only instead of having your partners knees besides you, they have their soles planted on the bed in a squatting position. Why its good: With this position, you can grab them by the butt and thrust deep. Even though your partners on top, youre still in control of the speed and motion. @alliefolino

20) Stand and Deliver How it works: Stand at the edge of a bed or desk while your partner lies back and raises their legs to their chest. Their knees are bent as if theyre doing a "bicycling" exercise. Grab their ankles and enter them. Why its good: This one's also great for people who love deep penetration. @alliefolino
