Bucket list sex positions for summer
There is an undeniable sexy sensation when summer comes around. Sure, it’s hot, and there’s sweat, or the humidity in the air can call for extended siestas, but there’s something about summer that makes you want to spice up your sex life, too.
Heat can go either way here: it’ll get you frisky and ready to romp around in bed, on the beach, or a hidden forested area, or be an aggressive deterrent for having lengthy, sweaty sex sessions. Your best bet? Don’t let intimacy issues reign. Embrace what the summer sun has to offer and these sex tips; don’t let it prevent you from having your best orgasms yet. If you’re lounging, barely clothed as it is, might as well have some fun with it.
We’ve got some bucket list sex positions for you to try this summer indoors or outdoors (but attempt cautiously, seriously) that switch up what might be part of your regular routine and lean into the summer theme.
A fun one for those who prefer a position like Doggy Style. With the Turtle position, one partner is on all fours, face down, with the other behind them. This position allows for more control and a deeper penetration, and can be paired with K-Y® Lubricant - Naturals* as lube for couples for heightened sensations. A bonus is the person laying with their face down can move around, rocking back and forth, or grinding into their partner behind them. It has the ability for self-pleasure, too, which can add more heat to the position.

A position that straddles the realm of foreplay and penetration, Pearly Gates does it all. Here, a couple has one person on the bottom with the other laying on top of them so there’s access to all the fun erogenous parts on their front. This position absolutely promotes intimacy between couples. There’s a focus on kissing, caressing, touching, and rubbing, perhaps an integration of sex toys, too, while also slow and steady penetration from the bottom.
Standing Shower Sex
This one may seem like an obvious choice but, if you reach deep down in your heart, is it actually? Standing shower sex seems long forgotten, a relic of the early days of dating an amour when everything was exciting, like taking showers together. Bring it back into rotation—summer is the perfect time to do so. Shower sex is especially great after a long day out in the sun when you both need to clean up. Couples can face each other or have one turned around with the other penetrating from behind while standing up and bracing by putting hands on shower walls.
Another seasonally themed position, the Seashell is one of those fun and deep penetration moves that does require a bit of flexibility. One person is on their back, they stretch their legs behind back and toward their arms as the other penetrates. Think Happy Baby position but legs straight as possible and close to the body.
Stairway to Heaven
Sometimes you need to spice it up and make sure you’re not just having sex in bed. Stairway to Heaven is one of those bucket list, gotta-have-‘em-right-now sex positions. One person sits on a step (perhaps the bottom one for safety) and the receiver sits on top. Use the handrail for leverage to move around and bounce or to stay steady. This position offers more intimacy between couples by ensuring they are kept close together for kissing and caressing.
