'Tis the season for scares, sweets and Halloween sex positions, a satisfying way for couples to ring in the most frightening time of the year once the Reese's run out.

In between horror movie marathons and snacking on your trick-or-treat stash (you'll likely want to include the viral sex chocolate, Tabs in the mix), the sexperts over at have uncovered spooky-good moves between the sheets, all of which have an ode to October. 

Needless to say, costumes are not required, but encouraged.

Halloween sex positions

Forget cowgirl style and doggy style. It's all about the witch and the ghost rider this time of the year. (*Cackles over cauldron*)

The Zombie Apocalypse

It's like The Walking Dead, but sexy. 

For this spooky-themed position, the sexperts say to have the penetrating partner lie down on their back and straddle their hips while the other player lowers themselves down onto them...and holds tight like a zombie would in an end-of-the-world takeover.  

The Pumpkin Patch

This isn't like the gourd you picked at the local farm. 

For the Pumpkin Patch, the penetrating partner should lie on their back with their legs slightly apart while the other lowers themselves onto them, facing the opposite way. From there, the penetrating partner will take their S.O.'s hips as they thrust up and down.

The Ghost Rider

For those who think sex is a workout, the Ghost Rider is one of the more advanced moves in the trick or treat bag, so proceed cautiously. 

One partner will have to lie down on their stomach with a pillow under their hips. Then, Player B will straddle them and lower themselves down until they're sitting on the pelvis. Grab their ankles for support and begin riding back and forth. 

(Again, proceed cautiously with any paranormal activity this spooky season.)

The Tangled Spider

The penetrating partner starts in missionary position while bending their knees and raising their hips, in turn keeping their pelvis high. Partner B heads on top and the games begin.

The Witch

For a wicked good time, the sexperts say to sit on the edge of the bed with your legs hanging off. Then your partner will grab hold of your ankles and lift your legs until your calves are resting on their shoulders. From here, they can enter you from behind while supporting your legs with their hands. It's a bit different than flying a broom.

The Haunted House

A chair's required for this one, and make sure it's not wobbly. 

From there, sit on the edge of the chair with your feet planted firmly on the ground and wrap your legs around your partner's waist as they enter you from behind.

The Vampire

For the Lestat fans in the crowd, have the penetrating partner stand up and lift you up so that you can wrap your legs around their hips and waist. Have them place you against a wall and thrust you up and down. Neck kisses encouraged. 

The 'Trick or Treat'

One partner's wrists are above their head with a pair of handcuffs or a silk tie. Next, they're blindfolded, and the other partner teases with light bondage and foreplay.  

Well, this sounds like an All Hallow's Eve for the books...the spell books,, that is.
