Struggling with height differences in the bedroom can be challenging, especially when your partner towers over you. But being on the shorter side has its perks, too. If you’re naturally flexible, your petite frame allows for a range of exciting positions that can enhance intimacy and pleasure.

We’ve put together a list of the 8 best sex positions specifically for short women, proving that size doesn’t matter when it comes to great sex. Whether you’re short yourself or have a pint-sized partner, this guide is your go-to for maximizing every moment together. Read on to discover positions that make every inch count and turn height differences into an advantage.

One pro tip: If you are having difficulty enjoying sex because of your height gap, consider using a wedge pillow. This setup could solve some of your problems in sex that are caused by the height difference. This pillow is ergonomically designed to tilt the receiving partner in a favorable direction that normal pillows can not accomplish.

Another pro tip: Communication is key. You’ve probably heard this many times, but being open with one another is crucial. You know your body best, so speak up when things get awkward or uncomfortable. With open communication lines and partners sharing what they like and do not like, you can soar to greater heights.


Let’s start with an intimate sex position: Spooning. Chances are, if you’re the short partner, you’re the little spoon, which makes this one perfect for short girls. Since you’re lying on your side and not standing, your height (or lack thereof) does not affect this position. It is also one of those lazy positions that can instantly make things hot and passionate. Whether you choose to do slow and sensual movements or fast and deep thrusts, you can guarantee lots of pleasure.

Spooning Position

Throw in a sex toy or even use your free hand for clitoral stimulation, if you’re feeling raunchy. You can also take this as a chance for you or your partner to hit your G-spot, with the penetrating partner entering you from behind.

How To Do It

  1. Both partners lie on their sides facing the same direction.
  2. The receiving partner or the short girl bends their top leg in front of them for easy access and deeper penetration.
  3. The big spoon or giving partner inserts their penis from behind.
  4. They grind their hips, feeling every thrust, every sensation as they move up and down.
  5. Stimulate your partner’s breasts, use a sex toy, or reach downward to stimulate the clitoris of the little spoon.


Table Top

Next up, we have the Table Top. Height? We don’t know her. With the Table Top, height plays no role, as you are at roughly the same level. You’re also free to do this anywhere. It does not have to be a table. Any flat surface will suffice: the bedside table, the dining table, the bathroom counter, the kitchen counter, or the office desk.

As long as whatever surface you will do it on is at your partner’s crotch height, you can have fun doing this kinky sex position. Also, the shorter partner can raise their legs to their chest, giving them more control over the speed and depth at which their partner thrusts, so there is some shared power in this position.

How To Do It

  1. Look for any flat surface that is suitable for performing the Table Top.
  2. Once you have your chosen surface, the short or receiving partner lies down on it with their knees raised above their chest and spread apart. It is best if their body is close to the edge of the table; this permits easier penetration.
  3. The penetrating partner enters, standing up.
  4. Start with slow thrusts before gradually increasing speed. Use your hands to explore and play with each other’s bodies.



Looking for another position to bridge the (height) gap between you and your lover? How about Cowgirl? This is another easy sex position that proves that size doesn’t matter. With one partner lying down and the other riding them, you couldn’t care less about your height. Plus, having shorter legs means you do not need to worry about long legs getting in the way. More on the cowgirl in this guide.

  1. The giving or taller partner lies supine on the bed with their legs spread apart, while the short or receiving partner gets on top of them with their knees on the sides of their partner’s waist.
  2. They guide the penis inside the receiving partner.
  3. The short or receiving partner grinds and moves their hips forward and back, looking for a comfortable pace and rhythm as they grind faster. The giving partner can use their hands to grab onto their partner’s waist, ass, breasts, etc.
  4. The receiving partner rides until they reach an orgasm.



You will enjoy Lotus to the max if you are a petite queen. With the bigger partner cradling the smaller one, it’s an awesome position to be a short girl. You can gaze into your lover’s eyes, make out with them, and so much more. If you already tried the lotus you can also try other sitting sex position variations.

  2. The penetrating or taller partner sits down with their legs crossed.

Did you know the Wheelbarrow gives petite girls the upper hand over taller women? If not, you have to try this one ASAP. While most people know the Wheelbarrow as a male-dominated position that offers deep penetration, it is a great position for pocket-sized women to dominate as well.

Since short girls have shorter torsos and limbs, their center of gravity is closer to the ground. This also means you can get your body closer to your partner. If you struggle to do this position due to the height difference, you can place your hands on any elevated surface (e.g., the bed, couch, or stairs).

How To Do It

  1. The receiving or short partner gets on their knees and hands with their legs extended straight back as if in a planking position.
  2. The giving partner lifts their partner’s ankles, extends their legs, and then shuffles closer to penetrate. The receiving partner can wrap their legs around their partner’s thighs. This setup helps their bodies become even closer.
  3. The receiving partner can also tilt their hips higher for greater depth of penetration.
  4. The penetrating partner guides his penis inside the receiving partner and begins to thrust.



Let’s add a twist: the Pretzel. Vertically challenged women win in this position because they make the most out of the length of their shorter limbs in the Pretzel, as opposed to those with longer limbs. Plus, you get intimacy, a full-body embrace, and eye control, along with deep penetration coming from a creative side entry angle. You can’t go wrong with the pretzel.

How To Do It

  1. The receiving or short partner lies down with their knees bent to one side.
  2. They lift their upper knee.
  3. The giving partner kneels and centers their body on their partner’s lower leg. Both knees should be in between the receiving partner’s legs.
  4. The giving partner wraps their upper knee around the waist of the receiving partner.
  5. The giving partner penetrates. They can use their partner’s wrapped knee to leverage their thrusts.
  6. Maintain eye contact and try to stimulate each other’s erogenous zones.



Just like all the previous positions where the lack of height does not affect sexual intercourse, the same applies to the bedroom classic: Missionary. This one can be enjoyed by anyone, even or especially small-statued girls. Even with great height differences, the tall partner can still stimulate his short partner’s clitoris.

The short partner may come face-to-face with their partner’s chest making kissing difficult, but this doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy intense G-spot stimulation, eye contact, the feeling of intimacy and passion, and deep penetration that comes with the good ole’ Missionary position. For it to be more effective, you can mix things up with other missionary variations that feel comfortable.

How To Do It

  1. The short or receiving partner lies flat on their back and the giving partner climbs on top, coming face to face with their partner.
  2. The giving partner penetrates from there.
  3. They start with shallow thrusts, moving slowly until they gradually increase in speed and depth of their penetration.
  4. They keep going until they climax.



Think of the Leapfrog as a short girl variation of doggy style. With the short partner on their hands and knees, it’s sure to create some heightened arousal. The Leapfrog is a relatively relaxed yet steamy short girl sex position for receiving pleasure from behind, just like in doggy style. And it’s not just an exciting experience for the receiving partner either. The angle at which the pelvis penetrates creates a sensation that will leave you and your partner wanting more.

Leap Frog position

How To Do It

  1. Facing down, the short or receiving partner props themselves up on their knees with their back arched. From here, they can press their face and chest onto a pillow for comfort and support. The woman arching her back can help create deeper penetration, and it also gives their shoulders and arms some rest.
  2. The penetrating partner kneels behind their partner and enters from there.
  3. The penetrating partner thrusts in and out until they orgasm.
