The Diamond

Degree of Difficulty: 3
Heat Meter: 6

Erotic instructions: Your guy lies on his back with a pillow propped under his head. Facing him, lower yourself onto his member and put your hands and knees on either side of his torso. "Once he's deep inside you, gently move in the diagonal shape of a diamond: to the left, then down, right, and up," explains Elena,* 21, who introduced us to this jewel of a move.

Pleasure payoff: You'll love it because your man's penis glides against every steamy inch of you, including your G-spot. (Hit this internal orgasm switch that's located on your front vaginal wall by moving into the "down" position.) "Not only can I take him all the way in, but he also gets to feel every inch of me," she raves. And since the slow, controlled motions won't wear you out the way fast, up-and-down thrusts do, you two will enjoy a long session of intense face-to-face intimacy.



The Side Slide

Degree of Difficulty: 4
Heat Meter: 7

Erotic instructions: Lie on your side, keeping your bottom leg straight and top leg bent at the knee. "Positioning himself between your legs, your guy lifts your top leg and either rests it on his chest or hooks your ankle over his shoulder, then enters you," writes Hope, 20.

Pleasure payoff: Yowza! If the wide-open view of your private parts doesn't take your guy over the edge, the deep penetration this position offers will. And since he can get way inside you, it'll make him feel like Moby Dick. "While he controls the speed and pacing, you lie there and enjoy the ecstasy," she adds. Or create even hotter down-there friction by squeezing your PC muscles tightly as he thrusts. It's also easy for him to stimulate you with his hand or a vibrator.



The Thigh Master

Degree of Difficulty: 5
Heat Meter: 8

Erotic instructions: "Have your guy lie back with one leg outstretched and the other bent, so his knee is pointing upward," explains Helen, 28, who tells us she created this with her partner after becoming bored one night with standard woman-on-top. "Facing sideways, lower yourself onto his penis and hold on to his bent knee for leverage. As you rock back and forth, lean far enough forward so your joy button rubs against his inner thigh."

Pleasure payoff: This torrid two-in-one move makes you the center of amorous attention: "The steady thrusting plus constant clitoral contact against his inner thigh will prime you for a big O," Helen says. And with his leg right there to balance you, you're free to really let go and grind in wild motions. Of course, there are booty benefits for him too. Thrill him by taking a break from thrusting to squeeze on the nerve-rich head of his penis. Or reach between his legs to massage his testicles and perineum (the supersensitive area between his balls and behind).




The Booty Bridge

Degree of Difficulty: 6
Heat Meter: 7

Erotic instructions: Since discovering this position with her boyfriend, Alexa, 19, has made it a permanent part of her passion repertoire: "Bend forward with your legs slightly spread and your arms either hanging loose in front of you or resting on a low chair for balance," she says. "Your guy enters you from behind, pulling himself as close to you as possible while holding your torso for support."

Pleasure payoff: This scorching spin on doggy-style is perfect for I-need-you-now quickies. "Being bent over gives your guy maximum depth and control," praises Alexa, and the angle allows access to your G-spot. And unlike typical rear-entry action that can leave you feeling disconnected from your dude, your pelvises and thighs touch, making the move more intimate. Booty bonus: Urge him to stay still while you grind your behind in circles.



The Carnal Clench

Degree of Difficulty: 3
Heat Meter: 9

Erotic instructions: "Lie on your stomach, legs straight and spread slightly," explains Julie, 33, who says this homegrown move is her favorite. "Your guy lies over you, positioning his legs on either side of yours. As he enters you, close your legs and cross them at the ankles."

Pleasure payoff: "With your legs clenched and ankles crossed, you can feel the entire length of your man's member and grip it tight," she raves, creating loads of feel-good friction as he tantalizes the depths of your pleasure zone. He can also reach under you and play with your breasts or brush his lips against your ears, cheek and neck. Though this move offers mega sensation, there isn't a lot of motion, so it's a prime pose for guys hoping to hold off on climaxing or couples who want to savor the feel of each other's bodies.



Randy Rider

Degree of Difficulty: 7
Heat Meter: 8

Erotic instructions: As your guy lies on his back, face him and lower yourself onto his penis in a kneeling position. Keeping your knees on the bed, hook your feet over the inside of his legs, likely at his knees. Grab the bed sheets on either side of his head, squeeze your butt, tilt your pelvis upward and move in small, tight motions. Giddyap!

Pleasure payoff: By gripping the bed sheets and using his legs as stirrups, this quasi-cowgirl configuration offers lots of leverage, so you maintain a steady rhythm without losing momentum before reaching orgasm. "And since your body is higher than it is in typical missionary, your clitoris can rub against his pubic bone," enthuses Elaine, 28.




Up, Up and Away

Degree of Difficulty: 4
Heat Meter: 7

Erotic instructions: "Lie on your back with a pillow under your head and your legs in the air as straight and high as possible," instructs Rory, 28, who sent us the details on her signature move. "While kneeling, your guy pushes your legs slightly to one side, not allowing them to flop all the way over, then enters you while keeping his hands on the bed or floor on either side of you for support."

Pleasure payoff: Having your legs up high and together creates a tight fit, which means goose bump-inducing sensations for you and your man. "But by bending your knees a bit, clamping your PC muscles, or opening your legs slightly, you'll experience a whole different grip and feel," she says. "Also, with your hands free, you can stroke your own bliss button while your man pumps away." Or just lie back and luxuriate in how oh-so-good your body feels.





Niagara Falls

Degree of Difficulty: 6
Heat Meter: 8

Erotic instructions: Facing the faucet, kneel in a tub that's half-filled with warm water. Lean forward and hold the walls or sides of the tub for balance; your guy can climb in and penetrate you from behind. As you grind, use your hand to guide the water stream from the faucet between your legs or use a detachable showerhead.

Pleasure payoff: This sex style is great for girls who don't always orgasm easily: Your man has prime G-spot access, while the super-sensual water spray electrifies your external passion button. "And with your bodies meshed tightly in the tub, your guy can play with your breasts and stroke you below the belt," says Tracy, 26.



Bed Spread

Degree of Difficulty: 3
Heat Meter: 8

Erotic instructions: Bend over the side of the bed so your stomach and breasts are pressed against the mattress and your feet are on the floor, legs spread comfortably. "As your guy penetrates you from behind, he lifts your legs from just above the knees, holds them apart and thrusts," reveals Lynn, 24.

Pleasure payoff: With your body angled slightly downward and your legs apart, he gets deep penetration. And since your gams are in his grip, he can thrust away with total abandon. Plus, he can easily view your sexy rear and watch himself move in and out of you -- an up close and personal pose guys pine for. So what's in it for you? You feel weightless with your legs lifted off the floor, as if you're floating, while your guy does all the work. "And his penis is perfectly angled to stroke your G-spot," she adds.





Degree of Difficulty: 10
Heat Meter: 10

Erotic instructions: Lie facedown across the bed, then scoot your body forward so your head and torso hang off the side and put your palms on the floor to support your weight. "Your man enters you from behind, his legs positioned inside yours and his hands holding your torso for balance so he can keep his head and shoulders high," says Jane, 32, who created this not-for-the-fainthearted pose.

Pleasure payoff: With your guy 's legs confined between yours, he won't have a huge range of motion, which means you'll be treated to lots of quick in-and-out moves that'll send a tsunami of sensation to the nerve-rich first few inches of your pleasure zone. And the instant blood rush to your head triggered when you lean off the side of the bed will heighten each thrust. "Because of the tricky positioning, this isn't something you can do all night," she says, "but it adds a lot of intensity to a run-of-the-mill romp."
