We all know that it's (really) hard for women to reach the big O from sexual intercourse alone. But that doesn't mean it's impossible.

Scientists from the medical research group of Mayo Clinic together with the Indiana University School of Medicine reviewed previous studies about sexual and neuroanatomy to find out why some people experience orgasm and some hardly do. They referred to a European study that took MRI images of couples having sex, from which they concluded that different sexual positions can stimulate the vaginal walls in different ways.

"If a woman is trying to achieve a vaginal orgasm, it seems like it tends to be more successful if the front wall of the vagina is more stimulated," Dr. Jason Siegel of Mayo Clinic told international news website Daily Mail Online in an interview.

In other words, the success rate for orgasms is higher when you get in contact with the front wall of the vagina. And what are these positions that specifically allow for such stimulation? Siegel advises to go with frontal sex positions like the good old missionary and the cowgirl. The dog style, based on their observations, will make it hard for her to orgasm because it tends to offer more contact with the "floor" of the vaginal cavity rather than its "ceiling" (the front wall).

Additionally, if math is your thing or you happen to be carrying a protractor around in the bedroom, the best angle of entry for vaginal wall stimulation was found to be between 30 to 45 degrees.

Keep these tidbits in mind, and be a better sex partner.
