1. Missionary

Missionary Sex Position With Two Fat PeopleThe missionary position might have a reputation for being plain, but the best sexual experiences are about your pleasure, not performing complicated acrobatics. Here’s why you should consider missionary as a top choice:

  • Maintaining eye contact strengthens the bond and lets you give in to the sensations. Don’t worry about looking like a porn star – porn isn’t realistic, and trying to recreate it will only ruin the fun.
  • Another benefit of the missionary is that lying on your back allows you to relax and enjoy sex without any distractions. To maximize the pleasure, make sure to prioritize foreplay. Have your partner finger you and kiss your neck.

Pro Tip: A missionary alternative is to place a pillow under your pelvis so your partner can enter you more easily.

How To Do It

  1. The vagina owner lies on their back with their legs spread.
  2. The penis owner positions themselves between their partner’s legs and slides into position.


2. Doggy Style

Having sex on all fours might seem uncomfortable if you’re carrying some extra weight. But doggy is actually a great option for plus-size couples as you can stimulate yourself during penetration. Plus, if your partner is also overweight, the angle will allow for deeper penetration than other sex positions.

Since doggie style isn’t a face-to-face position, you can let your imagination run wild and imagine yourself in a scenario that turns you on the most. If your partner is into the same kink as you, you can engage in roleplay to spice things up.

Pro Tip: A doggy alternative is to add a piece of sex furniture, like a Liberator wedge sex pillow with memory foam, under your arms for extra support; it will allow you to save energy while being on all fours. More on sex positions with a pillow here.

How To Do It

  1. Get on all fours on the edge of the bed and use a pillow for your forearms.
  2. The penetrating partner then enters you from behind.
  3. The vulva owner can spread their legs and stick their butt out for easier entry.


3. Spooning

Do you like to snuggle up and cuddle with your partner? Then you should give the spooning position a go, and here’s why:

  • Spooning is an incredibly intimate position that isn’t much different from your regular cuddling session.
  • Secondly, spooning can give your partner a feeling of comfort and strengthen the connection between you two, which is hotter than having wild sex.
  • Additionally, spooning allows your partner to enter with ease and stroke your breasts at the same time. The extreme closeness also prevents his penis from slipping out, which can happen in certain sex positions.
  • Finally, spooning is also perfect for bigger people with bad knees since you’re lying down.

How To Do It

  • Both partners lie on their sides, facing the same direction.
  • The receiving partner lifts her top leg to allow the giving partner to enter her from behind.
  • The man should position himself slightly lower than the woman to make it easier to insert his penis all the way.


4. Standing

Standing sex is a good choice if you’re worried about weight. It’s easier because you don’t have to put your weight on your partner. Just lean against a wall, and your partner can easily reach you from behind. Standing sex is also great for quick and spontaneous fun, like a quickie in the shower.

Pro Tip: This position is also perfect for oral sex, so don’t hesitate to kneel for your partner or let them pleasure you before moving on to penetration. Remember, sex isn’t just about penetration.

How To Do It

  1. Stand against a wall and lean slightly forward.
  2. Have your partner enter you from behind.


5. Cowgirl

The best thing about the cowgirl is it allows for deep penetration and eye contact. It’s also one of the best options for couples that love power play. You can try lightly choking your partner or whisper a few dirty words into his ear.

If too much is in the way, you can make it easier by tweaking things. Yes, I’m talking about the Reverse cowgirl position, which allows you to rest the weight on your forearms. This cowgirl alternative works great if your partner is also obese because you can easily lean forward without putting pressure on his stomach. The angle also allows for direct G-spot stimulation.

 How To Do It

  1. Your partner lies on the bed.
  2. Position yourself over his hips and slide into the position.
  3. You can face either direction, but if you’re both overweight, it’s better to attempt the reverse cowgirl first.


 6. Tabletop

The Tabletop is another excellent plus-size position because it gives you a lot of space to use sex toys to enhance your orgasm and add variety to your sex life. Plus, it’s great for those spontaneous sex moments.

You can also try roleplay while you’re at it – this, combined with the thrill of getting caught, can take your lovemaking sessions to the next level.

How To Do It

  1. Lie on the table with your legs spread.
  2. Have your partner stand between your legs and enter you slowly.
  3. He can place his hands on your hips for more control.
  4. Alternatively, you can try the butterfly position, where you put your legs on your partner’s shoulders. This alternative will allow you to enjoy deeper and better penetration.


7. Pretzel

Pretzel Sex Position With A BBW Couple

Pretzel is another good option for overweight couples as it combines deep penetration with intimacy, which are key ingredients to great sex. Since you twist your body and turn to the side, it gives your partner easy access to your vagina. This angle is also great for oral sex and clitoris stimulation – remember, foreplay is as vital as actual penetration and might help you relax if you’re self-conscious about your body.

You can add a pillow under your hips to let your partner go in deeper and experiment with different angles. Add a vibrator to the mix and look your partner in the eyes while you’re having an orgasm – it will drive him crazy!

How To Do It

  1. Lie on your side and lift one leg.
  2. Your male partner kneels in front and puts your leg over his hip.
