Standing

This sexual position builds your core muscles and improves your leg muscles too. The girl can flex her muscles and improve arm strength as she latches onto the man. This exercise needs a lot of stamina.

Lotus
Though it may seem like an easy sexual position, the lotus position improves your glutes and core. The lotus position also makes it intimate as you and your partner are facing each other.

Doggy style
This is one of the popular sexual positions for a man and a woman. It stimulates both the sexes immediately; doggy style stimulates a woman’s G-spot and pumps up a guy’s member. Doggy style strengthens a woman’s core, quadriceps and glutes. As for guys the quads and the core too are exercised.

Cowgirl
Cowgirl is one the favourite positions for women as they are in command of their body and their sexual experience. Cowgirl flexes lower abs, pelvic muscles and calves – cowgirl serves as a great exercise to build stamina and the leg muscles.

Scissors
