Taking initiative in the bedroom is like taking initiative at work — more than likely, it'll pay off big time. Check out these moves that put you in the driver's seat and let you take control of the action.
This classic position allows you to take charge of pace and depth of penetration, so alternate between shallow and deep thrusts to stimulate different parts of your vagina. To increase sensation, your partner can manually stimulate your clitoris—if you feel like giving him control, that is.
Switch up your usual cowgirl by facing away from your guy and giving him an awesome view as you ride him. For even more control, lean forward or back to change the angle of his penis inside you.
This position is a must-try if you like being in charge but don't want to sacrifice face-to-face intimacy. With your partner sitting on a chair or the edge of the bed, sit on his lap facing him with your arms around his back. Once in the saddle, you can ride up and down by pressing with your legs and knees.
Give woman on top an oral twist. Hold onto a wall or headboard for support as you straddle his face. Then, you can let him do his thing, or you can really take control by having him hold his tongue firm as you gyrate your hips to your liking.
Hello, dual pleasure. Straddling your partner's bent leg means you'll get clitoral stimulation and penetration at the same time. Hold his knee, and use it for support as you rock up and down. Want to drive him even crazier? Glance behind you to watch him enjoying you taking the reins.
Ask your partner to sit on the edge of the bed or on a chair, then back up onto him, sitting between his legs. As you move up and down, you can control the angle of entry by arching your back and pressing your butt into his groin.
Let your partner really relax by placing pillows behind his back and having him sit against them with his legs outstretched. Then, once you've lowered yourself onto him, you can press on the balls of your feet and release to raise and lower yourself as quickly or slowly as you please.
