Put your sex life into overdrive

Ooooh, car sex: Shifting into high gear while your automobile is in park recalls those heady teenage days when sex seemed forbidden. For those of us who didn't get it on as teens at Makeout Point in high school — but wish we could have — these positions designed for vehicular sex will have you jeepin' in no time. The threat of getting caught will only add to the thrill.

Backseat Driver

Backseat Driver

How you do it: 

"Flip the front passenger seat forward and push it as close as possible toward the dash," says Lisa Sweet, author of 365 Sex Thrills. "He can then recline on the passenger-side backseat, with his legs resting on either side of the front passenger headrest. She climbs on top of him facing away from him and, depending on her height and the kind of car, can either kneel or bend her legs so her feet are planted outside his hips. To take him for a test drive, all she has to do is clutch the headrest to add some turbo power and shift his gear stick up, down and all around."

*Safety first: "Turn off the car to avoid making this a final joy trip. Also put down a towel or something else to protect the seat material. Last, stay on the passenger side of the car so there are no accidental horn honks as the action heats up," Sweet says.

Why it's awesome:

"It’s a space-efficient move that doesn’t compromise on pleasure no matter what size the car," Sweet says. "Any woman-on-top move means she drives the action, bumping and grinding as she desires while he gets to lie back and come along for the thrill ride. Add an outing to the wild side by using the safety belts to strap him in tight and restrict his movements."

Seated Rear-Entry

Yab Yum With a Twist


How you do it:

"The best car position is with him seated in the passenger seat and with her on top, facing away from him for some rear-entry access," says sexologist and couples therapist Kat Van Kirk. "This position is all the better with her legs inside of his, keeping the position compact and controlled."

Why it's awesome:

"The woman controls penetration and rhythm. There is heightened G-spot stimulation with rear entry, and she or he has access to the clitoris," Van Kirk says.

Yab Yum With a Twist

How you do it:

The classical Yab Yum tantric sex position is ideal for getting it on in the front seat. "In Yab Yum, the partners sit face to face with one astride the other. In the classical version, the man sits in the full lotus posture, with the woman on his lap, her legs wrapped around him. Of course, this isn't very practical in a car, but he can sit in the passenger seat, and she can straddle him," say tantric sex experts Patricia Johnson and Mark A. Michaels, coauthors of Partners in Passion: A Guide to Great Sex, Emotional Intimacy, and Long-Term Love.

Why it's awesome:

"If you're parked in an area where you won't be disturbed, this also allows for alternating between active, movement-based sex and a slow, meditative style of lovemaking. It allows you to sit in stillness and experience the quiet beauty of uniting your body with that of your beloved. If the sexual energy begins to diminish, you can pulse your PC muscles to reignite it. Exchanging pulses, which is sometimes known as 'the secret language,' can be a particularly sensual way to do to this," they say.

"This is one of the most intimate sex positions because your bodies are close together, aligned and face-to-face, which makes it great for eye-gazing. It allows your hands to be free to caress each other or to stimulate other erogenous zones. It's also great for building harmony and connection, since your breathing and emotional states will sync up quite rapidly."

Pro tip: Set the pace yourself. "This makes being penetrated an active rather than a passive or receptive role and often results in a more pleasurable orgasmic experience."

4. Belt Bondage

How you do it: 

"He lies on his back across the backseat, and she ties his hands above his head using the seat belt. She climbs on top and grinds to her heart’s content," says Jess O'Reilly, Ph.D., author of The Little Book of Kink.

Why it's awesome:

"This position works for women who know how to take what they want with no apologies," O'Reilly says. "Being on top allows her to rub her clit against his pelvic bone or reach down with her fingers for some extra stimulation."
