Sex positions are the various ways people can place their bodies during sex. There are four main categories of penetrative sex positions:
- Penetrating partner on top.
- Receiving partner on top.
- Sideways or side-by-side.
These different types of sex positions are often adaptable for vaginal and anal sex. Different sex positions vary the depth and angle of penetration. This changes the sensations couples feel. While most sex positions are designed for penetrative sex, there are also oral sex positions, including analingus positions, and masturbation positions.
People are creative and unique in the way they experience sex. A large number of documented sex positions and variations on them reflect different sexual tastes and physical abilities.
