5 Awesome Sex Positions for Girl-on-Girl Love

Vanessa de Largie | Kinkly | June 26, 2017

The thing that irritates me about a lot of girl-on-girl porn is that it is often made for men. Lesbian porn clips that feature sex positions that look great on camera may not actually be that hot in practice.

Fortunately, there are also lots of great resources that pay homage to true lesbian sexuality and desire. Below are five awesome lesbian sex positions that are designed for both partners’ pleasure – not the camera.

The 69 Sex Position

The 69 position has to be my personal favorite sexual position for girl-on-girl love. I’m bisexual, but I find this one to be much more pleasurable with women than with men. I think the female anatomy may just be better suited for this kind of action! Feel free to add in a vibrator here if tongues get tired.


Scissoring is widely debated throughout the lesbian community and the feminist community. Actually, I would go as far to say that in many circles, it’s considered a joke – which is sad, because I know many women who really derive pleasure from it!

Non-LGBTQ folk can make assumptions about girl-on-girl sex and those assumptions include female genital-on-genital action. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, a 2003 survey of over 1,200 lesbian and bisexual women who were asked about their sexual practices found that only 50% practiced genital-on-genital touching regularly.

Although some people find scissoring uncomfortable, for many others it is so much sexy fun. There are numerous ways to scissor and most of them are really awkward; you may end up in a giggling heap, rather than getting off. But trust me, this position can be sooo sexy! And you will definitely score an intense hip, thigh and butt workout.

Lesbian Spooning Position

The Spoon is simple, relaxing and intimate. You both lay on your side, one behind the other, facing the same direction. The partner who lies behind can reach around and stimulate your clit. When the partner in front raises their top leg, this provides even more open access. And of course anal and vaginal penetration from behind work seamlessly in this position with a strap-on, fingers or a sex toy.

Reverse Missionary Position

As the name suggests Reverse Missionary position is missionary – in reverse. In this case, the partner on the bottom would likely don a strap-on, while their partner takes the top position. Either one can straddle the other and change leg positions for different angles of stimulation and penetration.

Rocking Horse Position

I reckon any legs-over-shoulders sexual position is a winner but this is particularly true for the Rocking Horse. In this position, one partner lies on their back putting their legs over their lover’s shoulders whilst the other kneels and thrusts with a strap on. The position allows deep penetration and is known to cause explosive vaginal orgasms.

Now, Go Make Up Your Own Positions!

The narrative for girl-on-girl love in porn, pop culture, film and literature isn’t always shaped by the people who actually engage in this kind of play in real life. In other words, a lesbian sex position can be any sex position that works for you and your partner. So, go ahead and use the positions that work for you and your partner – and feel free to experiment.
