5 Best Sex Positions for a Small Penis (w/ Illustrations and Tips)

We know; you've heard again and again that size doesn't matter - but if you feel like you're not delivering in the bedroom, it can be hard to take that claim seriously.

The fact is, size doesn't matter - but your technique does. Women are far more likely to be satisfied by an imaginative and skillful lover than they are by a guy that's packing size but doesn't know what to do with it.

In this guide, we'll explore the best sex positions for a small penis - so you can forget about measurements and focus on delivering memorable and mind-blowing sex, whether you're casually hooking up or adding spice to a long-term relationship.

Doggy Style

Doggy style is one of the best-known and most-loved sex positions out there - and it's especially good if the penetrating partner has a smaller penis.

To make it happen, you need the receiving partner to position themselves on all fours, either on their hands on leaning on their elbows. As the guy, you can then penetrate their vagina or ass while kneeling upright behind them.

Doggy style is one of the best-known and most-loved sex positions out there - and it's especially good if the penetrating partner has a smaller penis.

Doggy style can be varied by experimenting with different heights and positions. For example, the woman can push her ass backward, getting lower but helping with deeper penetration. She might decide to vary the angle of your penetration too - by lifting or lowering her body, going between hands flat with straight arms to chest down and ass pointing more upwards.

What Makes This Position Great?

There's a lot to love about doggy-style sex!

Firstly, it allows for deep penetration, even if you have a smaller-than-average penis size. Since the penis usually angles down slightly when entering a woman from behind, it also increases the chance that you're going to stimulate the G-spot, which is located on the front wall of the vagina.

Doggy style is also great for anal sex - allowing your partner to adjust the angle of your penetration for maximum comfort. This position is also perfect for clitoral stimulation. Since you don't have to prop yourself up with your arms, your hands are free to explore. As long as your partner has her legs open slightly, you can reach between them and rub her clit to maximize her enjoyment.

If you want to take that clit stimulation to the next level, you can even make use of your hands by directing a vibrator toward her clit for even more orgasmic fun.

Of course, a lot of pleasure is in the head - and doggy style delivers plenty in that area too. As a change from face-to-face sex, it can feel more exciting and arousing than the missionary position, regardless of penis size.

It also gives the penetrating partner a lot of control too - so it can be exciting for your partner to give up that control and let you control the pace and intensity of your sex.

There's also a lot to be said for exploring your partner's less well-known erogenous zones while you enjoy doggy-style sex. You can tickle and caress her back, neck, thighs, butt, and breasts or even engage in a little hair-pulling if she'd enjoy that. There are a lot of extra stimulation possibilities when your hands are free to wander!

Which toys work well with this position?

          True to the name, the cowgirl position makes it look a little like your partner is riding a horse. The good news is, you don't need to be hung like a horse for her to get her kicks.

          To make this sex position happen, you should lie flat on your back. Your partner then climbs on top of you with one leg on either side and lowers her vagina onto your penis.

          True to the name, the cowgirl position makes it look a little like your partner is riding a horse. 

          It's helpful for one of you to guide your penis into your partner - but when it's there, you can go hands-free and let her take control. She can grind her hips, slide up and down your penis, or just angle her body so you're hitting all the right spots. She may even decide to lift her knees so she's in more of a squatting position on your penis to maximize penetration.

          What Makes This Position Great?

          Cowgirl is a dream for guys with a smaller-than-average penis length because it facilitates deep penetration - meaning every inch you're packing is used to its full potential.

          Your partner can angle her body so your penis is pressing against her G-spot.

          Remember, in most women; the G-spot is between 1-2 inches inside the vagina - so even small penises will do a perfectly good job of hitting the sweet spot.

          When you're inside and in contact with her G-spot, she can then take control and move to stimulate this sensitive area according to her liking. This also means she can control the intensity of sex too - getting herself close to orgasm then leaning forward to ease off and build that glorious tension. Cowgirl is a unique position because both your and your partner's hands are free to explore.

          She can play with her clit, her breasts, or any other sensitive area that feels good. Equally, you're free to let your hands wander too - cupping her ass, holding her hips, or holding her hands and letting her brace herself against you as she moves. The possibilities are virtually endless!

          Cowgirl is also one of the most visually appealing positions for most guys. You get a front-row seat to the action, which can seriously help with arousal. If your partner likes to be watched, this can be a huge turn-on for her - especially since she's in control. Pro-tip - if your partner likes to grind - a textured vibrating cock ring is almost guaranteed to make her happy!

              Giver Standing, Holding Receiver

              The giver-standing, holding receiver position is a little more physical than some of the others on this list, but the sensations you'll both get are worth it. Not feeling strong enough? Don't worry; there are plenty of household surfaces that'll do some of the lifting for you!

              The giver-standing, holding receiver position is a little more physical than some of the others on this list, but the sensations you'll both get are worth it. 

              It's a good idea to start this position sitting on the edge of the bed or on the sofa. Your partner should straddle you and lower her vagina onto your penis. Then, she should wrap her legs around your body and her arms around your shoulders, like a hug. When in position, you can then lean forward, holding her body tight against yours, and stand up. It requires a little trust - but your legs will take most of the weight - you just have to keep her body pressed against yours.

              Alternatively, you could position your partner on a slightly higher surface, such as a kitchen surface or bar stool, then penetrate her before leaning backward, holding her tight, and lifting her - taking her weight onto your legs.

              When you're in position, your penis will be inside your partner up to the very bottom of your shaft. Her weight is pushing her vagina down and keeping you deep inside her - making the most of every inch.

              What Makes This Position Great?

              Regardless of penis size, you're going to get fantastic penetration and lots of sensual close bodily contact from this position. This intimacy is increased even further because you're face-to-face, so deep kissing and eye contact adds to the fun.

              Like the cowgirl position, standing while holding your partner gives her the opportunity to angle her body on your penis.

              She can relax her arms a little, loosening her hug to lean back and stimulate her G-spot with your penis. You can support her upper body as she does, so you can both keep your balance.

              There's plenty of psychological fun to be had when you pick your partner up too. She'll often feel slightly dominated as you exercise your strength and hold her on your penis. This can be a huge turn-on if you enjoy experimenting with dom/sub roles, as there's a lot of trust involved when you pick your partner up and hold her full body weight against you.

              Of course, the strength in your legs might not last forever, so you can always use a wall to support your partner's back and take a little weight off your legs. As well as resting your legs, this also feels playfully domineering too.

              When you're ready for a change of position, you can easily transition into missionary - or sit down and let her take control with the cowgirl position.

                  Pile Driver

                  Illustration of the The Pile Driver Sex Position

                  The phrase 'pile driver' might not sound like the most romantic proposition - but if you're looking for sex positions for guys with a smaller-than-average erect penis length, it's one of the best there is.

                  Start by getting your partner to lie flat on her back. Then, get her to swing her legs back over her head/shoulders as far as she feels comfortable. She should lift her lower back as she does this - effectively pointing her ass up toward the ceiling.

                  If it helps with comfort, she can put her arms behind her and rest them on her lower back to keep her mid-section pointing upwards. You can even use pillows or the side of the bed to help keep this position if it's otherwise uncomfortable.

                  With her ass pointing upwards, you can stand over her and penetrate her from above.

                  Depending on the normal angle of your erection, you may need to point your penis downward a little as you enter - but this helps to create a thrilling sensation when you're inside.

                  What Makes This Position Great?

                  The pile driver is a great addition to your sex life if you have a smaller penis. This is one of the best sex positions there is for G-spot stimulation thanks to the angle of entry.

                  Although her ass will be facing upwards, your partner's hips will usually tilt forwards in this position. This puts the vagina wall directly behind the vulva, which means you're going to be making contact with the G-spot when you penetrate her.

                  Like the other positions on this list, she'll be able to angle her hips to adjust the angle of your entry too - so she can make sure you're hitting exactly the right spot as you thrust. Since the vagina wall is at this angle, it also makes for a tighter fit - ideal if your partner likes the sensation of being stretched by your penis.

                  This is one of the best sex positions there is for G-spot stimulation thanks to the angle of entry.

                  If you're looking for an especially naughty position, the pile driver is the perfect choice. You don't have to rely on back strength to keep your partner in the position either - by doing this position at the side of your bed; she can keep her hands free for clitoral stimulation while you're thrusting.

                  If you enjoy anal sex, this position can very easily become an anal pile driver too. Again, because of the angle, it means you or your partner can easily access her vagina while you're penetrating her - especially sexy if she'd like to experience some intense double penetration sensations.

                      Seesaw
                      Illustration of the The Seesaw Sex Position

                      At first glance, the seesaw might seem like the cowgirl position. You lie flat, and your partner lowers herself onto your penis. Unlike the cowgirl position (where her knees rest at either side of you) - she then raises her knees and puts her feet flat on the bed at your sides.

                      To support her body weight, she can then place her hands on you to get the angle that offers the most stimulation.

                      She might put her hands forward onto your stomach or chest - but she can also lean backward, placing her hands on your knees or even your ankles.

                      When she's found a position that's right for you both, she then uses her feet to lift her hips up and down, sliding her vagina up and down your penis. The seesaw position requires some strength from muscles in your partner's thighs and ass, but the effort is more than worth it!

                      What Makes This Position Great?

                      The seesaw is another position that offers you an amazing view of your partner going to work on your penis - especially if she leans backward. Her legs are open as she straddles your body, so you've got a front-row seat to a fantastic show.

                      The idea of the seesaw is that she pumps her legs up and down. Don't worry though, that doesn't mean you've got to be packing a lot of length - even just small movements will let her work her G-spot against the end of your penis, so just rocking her hips will feel fantastic if you're worried about slipping out.

                      Although your partner's hands are going to be busy as she works up and down your penis, this position keeps your hands completely free.

                      This means you can remove some of the effort for her by cupping her ass and helping her work up and down. If you're concerned about slipping out, keeping one hand on her ass and the other on her hips can help to limit the up and down motion so you stay in the right spot.

                      Of course, you might decide to give her a helping hand too. Since her legs are spread in front of you, you've got the perfect opportunity to stimulate her clit as she's moving. You may even decide that a bullet-style vibrator works perfectly in your hand too - tickling her clit as she loses herself bouncing up and down on the seesaw!

                          The Best Sex Positions for A Small Penis: A Summary

                          Despite the average penis size being much smaller than most people think, penis anxiety is still extremely common. Feeling like you're inadequate can lead to a huge range of problems - not least a lowered self-esteem, which can often be a factor in erectile dysfunction.

                          We're here to tell you that penis size won't stop you from having great sex that's deeply satisfying for you and your partner. The following positions don't rely on length to stimulate your partner:

                          • Doggy style
                          • Cowgirl
                          • Giver standing, holding receiver
                          • Pile driver
                          • Seesaw


                            Although some of these positions are already bedroom favorites, some aren't so common - so as well as being positions that will help your partner get off if you're smaller than average, they're also fantastic ways to add spice and variety to your sex life.

                            Unlike standard missionary sex, many of these positions also give you or your partner at least one free hand - perfect for adding additional stimulation from a sex toy. Since the majority of women don't orgasm from penetration alone, this can be the key to mindblowing orgasms for both of you - regardless of what any measuring tape says!
