10 Ways to Spice up Doggy Style Sex

For those who are unfamiliar, “doggy style” is when a person is on their hands and knees with a partner penetrating and/or pleasuring them from behind. 

Doggy style is beloved by many for how sensory-oriented it is. The person on the bottom has the room to move their whole body. (The position tends to tighten your pelvic region, which can make penetration feel fuller.) The person behind has an unrestricted view of their partner, and easier control of their hips. 

But like any other sex position, doggy can become kinda routine if you do it often enough. In that case, how can you shake things up a little to bring back the “oh wow!” spark?


  1. Grab a positioning aid. 

It can be hard to hold yourself in an ideal position for a long time – especially if you’re getting railed! Some folks bend over furniture or use a folded pillow to support themselves, but if you’re looking for a more versatile and effective prop, there’s Liberator. Liberator makes wedges and ramps to cushion your pushin’. These specially designed pillows are made with high density foam, so they won’t squish under you like a regular pillow. 


If you need something even more agile, there’s the Saffron Love Strap. “The wide, vegan leather strap helps reduce strain on knees and back, as the strap-holder uses the hand loops to find the ideal angle.”


  1. Watch yourselves in a mirror. 

Turned on by the idea of being watched during sex? Be your own audience by setting up a mirror the next time you’re doing it doggy style. Unlike most sex positions, doggy has both partners looking in the same direction. This means it’s ideal for watching yourselves get it on – and simultaneously enjoying each other’s reactions.


Just remember that sex on a Thursday afternoon isn’t meant to look like a mainstream porn shoot. Your body, your expressions, and your viewing angle are all au naturel – and it’s sexy as hell! 


  1. Use toys with handles.

Doggy style is great for a number of things, but it can be difficult to reliably reach your genitals when you’re on your hands and knees. Especially if you have short arms, a prominent belly, etc. Sex toys can help us reach further than our fingers – but sex toys with handles can do even better.  


The Hot Octopuss Kurve, the Manta Penis Wand, and the We-Vibe Wand (which has an attachment for penises) all have great handles. Toys like the Satisfyer Petting Hippo and BMS PalmPower Extreme have angled necks that are even easier to get into place. 


(Bonus Tip: Liberator has the Top Dog for holding strokers and Wanda Wand Mount for holding wands and other vibes if you’d prefer a hands-free experience. The We-Vibe Chorus for vuvlas and the Hot Octopuss Jett for penises are options for hands-free toys.)


  1. Consider some double penetration.

If you have two holes, being the bottom during doggy puts both of ‘em front row center. Popping in a pretty jewel-based plug gives your partner something to ogle during the act. If you’re the penetrating partner, you can wear a dual penetration harness like the Deuce “Male” Harness or Menage a Trois Double Penetration Harness to add an additional dildo to the party. 


If you’re not ready to fully incorporate anal penetration in your play, you can still include your bum if you want. You can ask your partner to slick their thumb with lube and massage circles on the outside of your hole, or beg for a light spanking


  1. Find out how ticklish they really are…

Tickling is a truly underrated tease! Not everybody enjoys it (and please ask before you indulge!) but those who do are in for some serious gasping and squirming if you reach down mid-doggy and skim your fingers, a feather, or a tickler over the bare soles of their feet. 


  1. Incorporate bondage.

Oh, the bondage possibilities that doggy offers! The penetrating partner can have their hands tied behind their back while they try to fuck without falling. The partner on their hands and knees can be roped into a Dogtie or Frog Tie. Either partner can wear a collar and leash to give the other a bit more control. 


If the partner on the receiving end wants to have their hands bound behind their back, they can lay with their chest down and their head turned. This lets them still look back at you and communicate. A great pair of cuffs for this is the Printed Cuffs with Handle, because they provide a handhold.


  1. Get doggy while doing doggy.

Doggy style can bring out our more primal side. It’s easier to let go and get a little wild if you’re not busy making eye contact. (Just make sure you’re still checking in with your partner – you might have very different ideas of what getting a little wild entails!) One way to take advantage of this frisky feeling is by channeling it into some role play


If you’d like to incorporate a little animal role play into your doggy style, you can wear a butt plug with a cute tail! Peepshow has a number of tail plugs, including doggies, blue bunnies, and proud ponies. And if you want to wear a tail but don’t want to use a butt plug (or if that hole’s already busy), there’s a puppy tail just for you


  1. Don’t sink in – enjoy the grind!

Whether you’re wielding a penis or a dildo, there’s no rule stating you have to be inside your partner during doggy. Instead, you can drizzle some lube over your partner’s ass or genitals and hump their soft bits. It’s a toe-curling tease for your partner, and a slick, groan-inducing ride for you. 


  1. Masturbate in the doggy style position.

All too often, we get so comfortable in our masturbation routines that we stop trying anything new. One way to spice up your self-love is to get into unique positions, like doggy! This allows you to stimulate yourself from different angles. It encourages you to use your tried-and-true sex toy favorites in other ways, such as fucking into a stroker with the Top Dog, rocking back against a suction cup dildo, or straddling your favorite wand vibe. It can also feed into fantasies you might be daydreaming about.


  1. Breeding kink role play. 

My, you’re looking submissive and breedable today! Just kidding. Unless…? 


Weird internet memes aside, “breeding kink” is when someone has the hots for impregnating a partner or being impregnated – or at least, pretending through role play. It doesn’t have to be anatomically possible for you. 


Doggy style can feel like a very primal position to be in, so it definitely feeds into the same raw, animalistic urge of “breeding.” Rut like you’re in heat while dirty talking about how fertile the fuck is – you might be surprised at how much of a turn on it can be!
