The Best Positions for Anal Sex: Expert Edition
In a different article, we offered anal sex positions for beginners. Here, you'll find 12 challenging and intense positions for anal-sex enthusiasts with experience.
How you engage in anal sex can make a big difference in your enjoyment. Some positions allow face-to-face intimacy or additional access to the genitals. Some depend on height. Some need props. (Sex toys can take anal sex to the next level, but we'll save those for another article.)
If you're not new to anal sex, you already know to bring the lube. Sometimes a towel can be handy to wipe up the occasional smear. Ladies, remember not to switch between anal sex and vaginal sex (and if you do, change condoms in between).
Here are 12 of the hottest anal-sex positions for intermediate and advanced practitioners. Some are interchangeable with vaginal sex, but, of course, here I'm recommending you try the anal version.
Note: I'm using "A" for the penetrating partner and "B" for the receiving partner.
Best intermediate/advanced anal positions
Both people on their knees, B in front of A. Like a semi-standing version of spoons, this allows for closeness and wrapping arms around each other. Also referred to as teaspoons.
An intense take on doggy style, B gets on hands and knees, and A crouches over them, balancing on the balls of their feet and fists/fingertips.
B lies on their back, legs bent up 90 degrees toward the ceiling (they can rest on A's chest/shoulders). A sits down on their knees and enters B. They may need to lift B's butt up a bit, so this may require some arm and quad strength by A.
This one requires a prop. B sits on a medium-high barstool with their butt over the edge, and A, who is standing, enters from behind. Also called high chair.
B stands, and A enters them from behind. You can wrap your arms around each other.
On their back, B tucks their legs toward their chest, moving into the happy baby yoga pose, allowing A to lower down and enter.
A sits on their butt, legs outstretched, arms just behind them, pushing into the floor. B lowers down on top, facing and straddling their partner, arms behind, pushing off of A's legs. This requires balance and strength, but allows you to be face-to-face.
Heads & toes
This is a beautiful, yet uncommon, position. Lie down like spoons, only head to toe. B positions their butt for rear entry, and A is able to reach their partner's genitals. Also called poles apart.
Similar to happy baby, but B positions their ankles on A's chest, feet back by their ears.
Top anal positions for the flexible, strong and experienced
This one's an intense and difficult position to coordinate. B lies on their back, lifting their legs all the way over their head or even until their toes touch the floor. B can use their hands to support their back. A bends their knees to lower themself down onto B's butt and enters. Not for the inflexible, and the feeling will be very full and intense for B.
Squat & press
B is positioned in a squat with their butt hanging over the edge of a bed or other surface that gives their hands something to push off of for support (and to get the movement going). A enters from behind, standing on the floor.
A sits cross-legged, and B sits down slowly on top of them, face-to-face, with legs wrapped around A's back. This is an intense and very intimate position.
These 12 anal sex positions are not for the faint of heart or weak of strength, but experienced backdoor explorers will find they take sensual excitement to new heights. Do some stretching, get prepared and enjoy.
