Whether it’s sex positions to help sculpt and tone or you opt for sex positions based on your star sign, we know what we like—sometimes. But have you ever wondered which moves get the most searches on google? Well, wonder no more, here are the most googled sex positions if you’re after a bit of sexpiration.

With all the new sex trends for 2022, not to mention the fact that we’re weeks away from Valentine’s day (hold your groans please) it seems many are on the hunt for some new sexy moves.

According to SlotsUP, searches for the ‘best sex positions' are up by 335%, and as we've all endured various states of lockdown across the world it's no surprise that people are looking to spice things up. 

So which moves are topping the most searched list?

1. The Lotus

At number one is the Lotus, which is described as a move for the ‘mindful couple.’ This move sees the giver sit with their legs crossed, their partner then sits on their lap with their legs placed on either side of the giver’s hips.

This move is great for Valentine’s day as it’s very intimate and sensual, while you move you can embrace and kiss—making it ideal for a romantic night.

2.  Splitting Bamboo

Described as a ‘lazy-couples’ go-to, the splitting bamboo position is very chilled. IMHO lazy sex is highly underrated, it often gets a bad rep and is never really spoken about. However, it really comes into its own when you're in the mood but not so much for strenuous exercise. 

The splitting bamboo allows the receiver to lie back, leaning on their arms and tilted slightly to one side, with their leg up on their partner’s shoulder. This move allows for deeper penetration while allowing you go to go at any tempo, with maximum feeling. Plus the lucky receiver gets to just lie back, chilling.

If you want to make this move even better and lazier, you can also add one of the best hands-free vibrators and try it on the sofa too.

3. The Plough

A move for the more adventurous lovers among us, who really want to shake things up. 

The Plough sees one partner on their front,  leaning on their arms, with the rest of their body off the side of the bed. Then the giving partner, stands beside the bed, in between the other’s legs, which they then lift up and hold—so their body is lifted off the bed. 

Strong arms are recommended for this move though, as it’s a bit of a workout.

4.  The Catherine Wheel.

This move is a bit more complicated and may take some practice. The giving partner lies on their back with their legs crossed, the receiver then straddles them, placing their legs around the giver’s torso. They then move their leg to be across the receiver’s middle, kind of like a seatbelt

This move is also a great opportunity to experiment with sex toys like app-controlled vibrators, to really get your legs shaking.

5.  The Bridge

For those who are more flexible, the bridge is the fifth most searched move. To do this move, the receiving partner is backward on all fours, creating a bridge shape with their body. Their partner will then kneel and be positioned in between their legs.
