These Are Our Favorite Sex Positions, According to Pornhub


Good ole Pornhub. It's always there to reveal our most intimate thoughts. It's also just reliable as hell. Whatever they put out, you can bet it always has the data to back it up. Every year, the website releases its annual report  and, suffice to say, it can get pretty comprehensive.

For 2022, the results are in and we finally know the world's most-searched sex positions. Think our go-tos if we want an easy, assured orgasm. And it looks like people's interest have been trending in the adventurous area. Among the most popular searches were "crazy positions" and "weird sex positions." Women are also said to be 13 percent more likely to search for the term "position." And, surprise surprise, "cowgirl" has come out on top. Men, on the other hand, were more likely to search for "doggystyle."

In terms of the actual rankings though, here's what the site found out:

1 | Lesbian Scissoring

Lesbian Scissoring is popular among both male and female users. There's something about watching two people climax that we guess gets people off. While the portrayal of scissoring in porn can be problematic at times, it's something people find interesting. It's the position where both partners slide in toward each other. The real pleasure is in the grind. Women who scissor each other like it because it stimulates their vulvas at the same time.

2 | Amazon

The Amazon can be interesting, to say the least. Here, the penetrating partner lies on their back and bends their knees up to their chest area. The receiving partner, meanwhile, squats down inside the former. A dildo works here, too. This is best for anal and vaginal sex.

For Every Great Way to Have Sex, There's a Sh*tty Drawback


3 | 69

The 69 never gets old, it seems. It's a decent way to orally pleasure each other simultaneously. Here, one partner lies on their back while the other gets on top. Each position their waist against the other's face. Yes, that's when the magic happens. You can't go wrong with this one.

4 | Missionary

Missionary, understandably, is one of the most common sex positions out there. It's simple and apparently, Pornhub viewers still can't get enough of it. The receiving partner lies on their back while the penetrating partner, well, thrusts. It may seem boring but there's beauty in simplicity, as they say.

5 | Lotus

This can be a tricky one. The Lotus is more often used in tantric sex. It's the move where one partner goes into a a pretzel position (like the one we do for yoga) while the receiving partner wraps their legs around them to receive penetration. It's a position that is said to increase intimacy. This is best done slowly for the best results.

Rounding out the rest of the list are classics like spooning, helicopter, and cowgirl. We're guessing we should thank Pornhub for this? Hey, the more you know, right?
