Car Sex 101: Best Positions + How to Have Sex in a Car


Having sex in a car may seem like something we left behind in our teenage years, but it doesn’t have to be. Regardless of your age, car sex can still be fun and adventurous. For some, there’s an exhibitionist aspect to it that can’t be beaten.

Steamy windows, the smell of sex, all carry with you on the ride home. It gives you a lovely reminder of what fun you just had and possibly, what fun there is to come!

It’s difficult to have a long session in a car, but that’s not a bad thing. Those need-you-now vibes, especially if you’re in a long-term relationship, make for seriously steamy sex and better bonding afterward.

Here’s some excellent car sex tips and ideas for your next session (or your first)!

Where to Have Car Sex?

Almost empty parking lots are a great spot for steamy sex in the car. You’re obviously still in public, but in the right spot, you’re still discreet enough to (hopefully) not get caught! You can also try the parking area during a concert while the show is ongoing. Most people will be in the show, not the parking lot, so you’re safe-ish. 

Although you can drive somewhere more isolated, you don’t want to be completely alone in an unknown area in case something goes wrong (or you’re with someone you barely know). On that note, don’t try having sex in a moving car either. Be safe! 

Since having sex in public is illegal (yes, even in your car), you’ll want to be extra careful about your location choice. Don’t go anywhere suspicious where cops might be able to easily spot you, like a park at night or a completely empty parking lot. Some police will let you go, but it’s best to be safe. 

Wear a car sex outfit

Coming prepared in a skirt or dress (hey, you can even avoid panties ahead of time!) will make sex in the car a lot easier. And if the worst happens and someone catches you, it’s easier to cover yourself. If you insist on wearing panties, wear some that are stretchy and easy to pull to the side. 

This goes for guys as well – the best thing to wear is some sweatpants with a fly that lets you easily pull your member through. You don’t want to be caught with your pants completely off.  

Come prepared (with lube + toys) 

Since sex in the car is usually a quickie, make sure to have some lube ready to go for maximum pleasure. You can even try bringing a discreet vibrator to help orgasm quickly. 


When you’re trying anything new, sexually, you should sit down with your partner and discuss what each of your expectations are. You don’t want to be excited about the prospect of amazing car sex, only to have your partner ask you to put on your seat belt and return to your proper place in the vehicle. 


Talking beforehand and letting your partner know this is something you’re intrigued by and want to try saves you both from embarrassment – plus, the suspense of knowing you’re going to have kinky car sex can get you worked up. 

If you’re not so worried about rejection, you can try to spring a sexy surprise on your partner – they might love it! 

Take advantage of the sunroof

If you’re lucky enough to have a sunroof in your car, this can help in a couple of ways. You can use it to allow air into the car for when things get sweaty and it gives you a bit more headroom for seated sex positions.

Just be sure to keep your voices at an inside level, even though technically you’re outside.

Experiment with different spots

Try the front seat, sure, but don’t leave out sex in the backseat. You can get a bit more room in the back while still maintaining closeness. Use what you have. With such tight quarters, you’ll learn the art of leverage (especially when it comes to sex in a small car).

And if you have a truck, even better. The bed of a truck is one of the best places to have car sex and remain as comfortable as possible. With a bit of planning, bringing an air mattress or lots of blankets makes sex in a truck even better.

Move outside

If you want to up the level of kink and there’s truly nobody around, try moving outside and onto the hood. Sex on top of a car will give you that exhibitionist thrill – just make sure nobody can see you. Get a blanket to throw on top of you so that, if anyone drives by, they will think you’re just making out. 

You can also try doggy style in the backseat with the door open (this is a more comfortable position for tall guys that struggle with sex inside cars).  

9 Best Car Sex Positions

1. Car-girl

This take on classic Cowgirl is your go-to move for car sex. Why? It’s easy to hop on and hop off your partner in a pinch, you get tons of clitoral stimulation thanks to the angle of his penis, and you can push your body up against his to take him as deep as you like.

How To: With your partner sitting in the driver or passenger seat, climb on top and straddle them. Option to recline as far back as you both desire.

2. Reverse Car-girl

Like Car-girl, only with your back and butt facing your partner so they get all the views (and you get a nice one of the parking lot). This position is another one of the best car sex positions because it’s wonderful for hitting your G-spot—and controlling the depth and pace of your partner’s thrusts, since you can lean on the glove compartment for leverage.

How To: Have your partner sit on the driver or passenger seat (or backseat, if you want), and straddle him facing away. Brace the window or glove compartment for stability as you grind.

3. Backseat Doggy

Missionary can be tough, since chances are, neither of you will be able to extend your legs fully. Doggy style in the car, on the other hand, is perfect: You get deep penetration and G-spot stimulation, he gets to take you from behind while bending his torso over yours, and you both get easy access to your clitoris. Win-win.

How To: Climb into the backseat, then get on all fours. Have your partner kneel behind you and enter, draping his upper body over yours.

4. Car-boy

If you’re tired, go ahead and let your partner take the driver seat…for the sex, too. In this position, you get to lie down (with bent legs…because, space) while he sits on top of you.

How To: Get in the backseat and lie on your back with bent knees while your partner straddles you. He then inserts his penis through the tight opening created by your semi-closed legs, increasing the intensity of penetration.

5. The Sea Shell

One way to take up less space in the car? Fold your body in half (or the closest thing to it). The Seashell is one of the winning small car sex positions for this very reason—and the fact that you can have him “ride high,” rubbing his pubic bone against your clit, or “ride low,” directly stimulating your G-spot with the head of his penis.

How To: In the backseat, lie on your back with your legs raised all the way up and your ankles as close to your shoulders/head as possible. He enters you from a missionary position.

6. The Om

The Om is one of the more tantric car sex moves – it involves more slow rocking than hard pounding. But it’s kinda romantic, if that’s your thing.

How To: Have your partner sit cross-legged (yoga-/pretzel-style) on the car seat, then sit in his lap facing him. Wrap your legs around him and hug each other for support.

7. Reverse Scoop

This lying-down position is great for backseat sex, since your bodies are basically intertwined with each other and your legs are bent, unlike in missionary. The bonus of lying down? No chance of banging your head on the car ceiling.

How To: Climb into the backseat, then lie down and turn onto your sides to face each other. Scooch toward each other until he can enter you, and use your arms and various parts of the car, like the (locked!) door handle, to support you.

8. Spider

Want to crank up the kink on your own car-sex scene? The Spider is a must if you want to make things a little more hardcore. The position creates intense penetration while letting you and your partner get a full look at each other’s bodies—something that most car sex positions can’t do.

Do It: Both of you sit on the backseat with legs toward each other, arms back to support yourselves. Now move together and onto his penis. Your hips will be between his spread legs, your knees bent, and feet outside of his hips and flat on the seat. Rock back and forth.

Car sex is the only time you’ll be happy to see a spider in the car.
