The Most Awesomely Lazy Sex Positions For When You're Tired AF

A guy once dubbed me a "pillow princess." I'm not mad about it. To be honest, I am pretty lazy in the bedroom.

But some of the best sex positions are the lazy AF ones.

Don't get me wrong. Every now and then, I like to be on top. But let's be real: On most days, you get home from work and you just want to be lazy. Sometimes you're not even in the mood for sex at all, but put out anyway because your dude is all riled up.

This phenomenon, my friends, is referred to as "mercy sex." You don't want to put in any work. You wouldn't necessarily mind getting yours, but you don't really feel up to throwing something sexy on and spending the next half hour essentially working out.

If you're generally a lazy human being and aren't up for riding your guy 'til the sun rises tonight, allow me to help you out.

These seven sex positions are perfect for the days when you just throw your guy a bone:

The Starfish

Aka good, old missionary. You can literally just lie there and let your guy do the work.

Your only job here is to enjoy the pleasure and let him know how good it feels.

The Spoon

I'm a big fan of this position because it basically just feels like cuddling.

Have your guy lie down as you lie next to him, your back facing his front. I suggest asking him to put his arm under your neck for some leverage.

Have him hold your breasts or put one hand on your clit for some extra sensation. This way, you're being stimulated in more ways than one and he has something to hold on to even though he's facing your back.

The Curled Spoon

This one is similar to the regular spoon, except with a slight difference.

Get into the spooning position with you as the little spoon, only this time, hug your knees into your chest as he does the same.

Because you're both in the fetal position, you won't have to do any work and his effort is minimal, as well. You're also super comfortable.

(There's something to be said for gentle sex.)

The Right Angle

Kylah Benes-Trapp

This position isn't a far cry from missionary. You still get to lie on your back and enjoy the view of your man.

Have him stand at the edge of the bed, facing your body. Then, throw your legs up onto his shoulders and have him hold them in place.

Your legs might feel a little sore afterward from the stretch, but that's to be expected. (Or should I say, SEXpected?)

The Acute Angle

Kylah Benes-Trapp

Unlike the Right Angle, this position won't hurt your legs because you aren't extending.

Lie down on your back and throw your legs up in the air, but keep soft knees. Have your guy hold them rather than putting them on his shoulders.

You can have an entire sex session switching back and forth between the Right Angle and the Acute Angle.

Collapsed Doggy Style

Kylah Benes-Trapp

Collapsed doggy, also known as "downward dog," is my favorite position.

It's so good, you might even fall asleep (not because the sex is bad, just because you're in a great sleeping position and we've already established you're tired from the work day).

Lie on your stomach and elevate your butt with a pillow. Your guy will get up behind you and do the rest.

The angle is also prime for hitting your G-spot, which is always nice.

The Chair Face-Off

Kylah Benes-Trapp

To master this position, you'll need a chair.

Have your guy sit face-front on a chair, and straddle him while facing him. He'll put his hands on your hips, then use his hips to bounce you up and down.

You could try this on a bed, but it's a little more difficult because you don't have the leverage you need to bounce properly in the event you feel like doing a bit of work.
