Having Sex On The Sofa Is Hot — Try These Positions Tonight

Couch sex is totally underrated. While it might seem uncomfortable or limiting at first, there are actually some pretty great reasons to get it on while waiting for your DoorDash order to arrive tonight. The best part is, you don’t have to stick to simple missionary (though that’s great too!) to get the most out of the experience. Here are some sex on the sofa positions to try — you’ll be glad you did.

The kneel and pray

This is a great variation of sofa sex that allows all the focus to be on one partner for a while. The concept is simple: One partner sits on the couch with their legs open while the other kneels on the floor in front of them and gives the seated partner oral sex. This works for couples of any gender, and it’s one of the best ways to dote on your partner and bring them ultimate pleasure. Don’t forget to grab one of the couch cushions for your knees if you have hardwood floors or just need a little extra cushioning!

Big spoon, little spoon

If your couch is wide enough, you may already spoon while watching Netflix. You can up the ante on intimacy by trying the spooning sex position on the sofa. The partner acting as the big spoon can penetrate the little spoon from behind. It’s also possible for the partner laying behind to either finger or give a hand job to the little spoon, depending on what they’re working with downstairs. It’s hot and heavy, sexy, and also requires a bit less vigorous effort if you’re tired from a long week at work.

The Lotus

You might not think the lotus sex position is one of the best positions for sofa sex, but you couldn’t be more wrong. Larger couches should have cushions large enough for you to straddle one another while sitting sideways. One partner should sit cross-legged while the other rests their bum in the other’s lap and wraps their legs around the partner on the “bottom.” From there, the seated partner can penetrate the partner on top or allow themself to be ridden. Either way, it’s pretty sexy.

The bend over

Assuming you’ve got a sturdy couch, why not use it as a prop to steady yourself as your partner pounds into you? This is a great position to try when you want it hard and fast. It’s also pretty simple and straightforward. One partner bends over the couch and holds onto the back of it while the other penetrates from behind. Having the couch there doesn’t just keep you from falling over as you have the orgasm of your life, but it also gives you something to rest against to take the force of the other partner’s thrusting.

Good ol’ missionary

An oldie but a goodie, folks! If you’ve ever had sex on the sofa, this is one of the positions you’ve probably tried. It’s standard for a reason, and you don’t really need it explained. One partner lies down on their back, the other climbs on top and goes at it. This is great for penetrative sex or oral sex. You could even try 69 sex position variations from this angle, which can add some extra hotness to the experience.
