Truth: Truth: Extreme height differences can throw a wrench into sexual relationships. In order to attempt something as simple as a mood-setting kiss, you have to bend way down or, annoyingly, lift her off the floor. And things get even more frustrating in the bedroom, when you’re attempting a sex position as simple as missionary only to find her looking not into your eyes, but at your chest hair.
While you can’t do anything to change your size, you can definitely solve the sex problem. Below, we’ve rounded up six positions that are the perfect fit for short women and tall men.
1 REVERSE COWGIRL
A tried and true favourite, reverse cowgirl works well for partners of divergent sizes: lying on your back takes height differences out of the equation. Simply have her straddle you and ride you while facing your feet. It’s also great if you have a big penis, because it allows you to stimulate her G-spot while she controls the depth of penetration.
2 TABLE TOP
Granted, you don’t have to do this one on a table — pretty much any surface will do. Enter her while she’s sitting or lying at the edge of a table, counter, or your bed.
This one works because it puts you both on the same level, and allows for the face-to-face action you might otherwise be missing.
In the contest for best sex position, spoons might just be the sleeper favourite. Although it is low-key and even lazy in its movements, it offers excellent potential for you to have easy access to her clit, which we guarantee she’ll appreciate.
4 THE CLOSE-UP
Lie over her and thrust from behind while she lies on her stomach, maybe with a pillow under her pelvis to improve the angle of penetration. This position allows her to play with her clit for maximum orgasm opportunities.
6 DOGGY STYLE
As a variation on that theme, try doggy style: Enter her from behind while she kneels on all fours, bringing her hips and knees up. You might even benefit from standing while she plants herself on the bed, which places her vagina on the same plane as your penis. You also get a great view of her from behind, which is excellent.
