The 5 Best Morning Sex Positions To Try When You're Legit Exhausted

My personal philosophy about morning sex is that it's all about maximum pleasure but with minimal effort. Like, nobody needs to be breaking out the butter churner before you've had your morning coffee, OK? You're tired, I get that. I mean, you just woke up! The good news is that you don't have to go full on Kama Sutra-level lovin' to have really awesome, satisfying sex in the a.m. The key to killer morning sex is picking positions that ease you into the day — in the most enjoyable way.

I'm not going to say that I'm lazy in bed, but... my Patronus is probably a starfish. If you want to call me a pillow princess, that's cool, too. Sure, I've tried all the advanced moves, which can be a lot of fun if you're in the mood to really break a sweat and get acrobatic with your boo, but sometimes (in other words, most of the time) it's OK if you just want to orgasm and chill.

OK fine, I am lazy. But what I am getting at here is that you can trust me when I say, even if you are legit exhausted, you will still dig these morning moves.

1. Saucy Spoons Position

One major benefit of Saucy Spoons is that you probably won't even need to move to assume this position. Also, let's be real here, back-to-back means minimal mood-killing morning breath. Sorry, someone had to say it. Anyway... To get into the groove, lay on your side with your partner right behind you. This move is great for penetration or to allow them to reach around for clitoral stimulation.

2. The Nirvana Position

This position puts a little spin on good ol' missionary. Lie on your back with your legs together and have your partner lay on top of you with their knees on either side of your thighs. They can then penetrate between your closed legs. Yowsa, talk major clitoral stimulation, and all before breakfast.

3. The Little Lift Position

Remember when I said that a successful morning sex position is all about maximum pleasure with minimum effort? Yeah, that's exactly what makes the Little Lift position A+ in the a.m. This move requires a prop; you can use a pillow, but a wedge is even better, so if you're a morning freak, it's worth investing in one. Place your pillow or wedge (get a wedge; seriously it's awesome) below your pelvis so that your hips are elevated for a modified doggy style. All the deep penetration with none of the work.

4. The Man Trap Position

This position makes for great morning sex because it's another twist on missionary. In the Man Trap, you will start off in missionary, then wrap your legs around your partner's legs. It offers you a lot more control of the speed and depth of the thrusting — while still chillin' on your back while waiting for the coffee to brew.

5. The Om Position

I recommend the Om position for the weekends or for days when you have plenty of time in the morning before you have to rush out the door, because this move is all about the slow build. Have the penetrating partner sit crosslegged on the bed, and the receiving partner will then straddle them and wrap their legs around their back. Rather than thrusting in Om, you want instead to rock gently. This position is ideal for slow, languid weekend lovemaking in the morning, when you're more about connecting than a quick get-off-and-go.

Well, there you have it. Now you can start your day off right with some great morning sex!
