If you find your desire for sex strikes often, it's probably because you have a high sex drive or libido. Sex drives vary from person to person, and unless you find it's significantly interfering with your daily life, a high libido just means you want a lot of sex. And you know what? That's totally fine if you're doing so safely (and with enthusiastic, continued consent), especially if you have a partner who is willing to indulge you and go several rounds until you're satisfied. If you're planning a long night ahead of you, you're going to need some really f*cking good sex positions that'll hit your spot just how you want it and keep things exciting.

Ahead, you'll find five options, from beginner sex positions to sex positions that'll pique even the seasoned veteran's interest. Each of these sex positions should help you reach your orgasm in a satisfying way, keep both parties comfortable, and inspire you and your sex partner to get even more adventurous with how you have sex. That said, the sky's the limit, so communicate with your partner constantly and adapt these sex positions in whatever ways will make both of you feel sexy and satisfied. (You might even consider adding some sex toys to the mix for even more stimulation.)

Cowgirl

When you're on top, you're in charge. OK, that's not always true, but when you're riding someone, you can easily set the pace and take everything you need from the experience, which is perfect if you're really, really into it. This angle also allows for deep penetration, which, depending on how you like to orgasm, can be that much more satisfying.

Doggy Style

What's great about having sex doggy style is you can get a little bit rough with it — as long as both you and your partner are into that — and move hard and fast, which can be exactly what you need if you have a high sex drive and crave a fast and furious release. This is another position that gives way to deep penetration, as well as G-spot stimulation, which can result in some pretty intense orgasms.

Yab-Yum

Yab-Yum is a popular tantric sex position, and it's a great one to try if you're hoping to get closer with your partner or if you or your partner has a high sex drive, because Yab-Yum focuses on intimacy. Essentially, one person sits on the other person's lap facing them, and the two of you focus on each other and the energy between you. If that level of spiritual connection is what you need to get off, this is the position to try

Butter Churner

I can thank "Love Island" for teaching me the butter churner sex position, which is not for the faint of heart. Basically, the partner being penetrated will lie on their back with their feet over their head and their hips in the air, so the penetrating partner does so from above. Because you're upside down, the blood will rush to your head, which can heighten the experience — but it's imperative to approach this position carefully and to avoid having sex this way for long periods.

Missionary With a Twist

Missionary is a solid sex position on any given day. However, if you have a vagina, it isn't always the best and most effective way for some to reach orgasm. When having sex missionary style, try the coital alignment technique, or a sex position in which the penetrating partner on top should slide a little farther forward, so that when they grind, they can better stimulate the vulva owner's clitoris. This added layer of stimulation may help both of you peak more quickly than with standard missionary.
