The woman lies down with spread legs while the man places on her, face to face. This position is highly beneficial to relieve stress. It is considered to be the most boring sex position, but it is great to tone the gluteal muscles, pelvis and tights.



The man lies down while the woman sits down on his penis. The movements women make in this position will help them to exercise the lower abdomen and pelvis. Men will tone their thighs as they lift their pelvis to ease the coitus.


The woman is on her four while the man is behind her and kneels to approach the woman with his pelvis. Women benefit most in this position. During it, they tone triceps and shoulders and both members of the couple exercise their abdomen and the lower back.

Standing up

Having sex standing up is a hard exercise for men because they have to hold the woman and also make movements with their hips. In this position, men will exercise their arms, back and abdomen.
