Growing into a sexual routine with someone over time is inevitable. We enjoy what we like. But eventually, doing the same moves gets boring, and we all understand what occurs when sex with our partner gets monotonous: both parties are dissatisfied and frustrated. Anytime you offer something new and fresh into the bedroom, you set yourself up for a more exhilarating experience and greater finish. The key to having a healthy relationship with sex is to stay open to learn and grow, (be it alone or with a partner).
What’s exciting about exploring healthy sex is that there are as many sex positions as there are flavors of ice cream. Essential, you have many options, styles, and strategies to choose from. Whether you want to explore using sex toys, changing your environment, or adding elements like food or music, the opportunity for creativity is unlimited.
Women and men don’t continuously agree on what passes as great sex. Due to our differing physiology, what seems enjoyable to one partner may not be all that exciting to the other. With that being understood we have a few sex positions that will enhance your’s and your partner’s pleasure.
In this sex position, you can have your partner sit back on some pillows with their knees up and legs separated. You can then stimulate their clitoris with your hand. This one is a great sex position for people who love passionate kissing.
The Winter Warmer
Your partner sits cross-legged (yoga/pretzel-style), you sit in their lap facing them. Wrap your legs around them and hug each other for support. This one is best for tantric sex. Rocking, not thrusting, is the key when it comes to this very intimate position. Thrust back and forth and up and down as you wrap your arms around each other, maintaining eye contact with a deep, loving stare.
Stand and Deliver
The stand and deliver sex position offers a deeper sensation for you both and couples. You’ll need to combine this position with some waist-height furniture, such as a kitchen table or desk. Get extra satisfaction by maintaining eye contact as you are both about to orgasm.
A more exciting take on your standard missionary, all you have to do is lie flat on your back with your partner lies perpendicular to you. Your partner enters you from the missionary position, then slides their chest and legs off your body so their pelvis is in the same location but their limbs form an “X” with yours. You feel more of your partner’s body in motion with this sex position.
Simply use your calves to direct your partner in a movement that works for you. And considering there’s plenty of deep penetration combined with clitoral stimulation, this position is ideal for achieving that elusive Big O.
The Sitting Duck
The Sitting Duck puts the woman on top – meaning she is in control of the speed and depth of the penetration. To copy the pose, the man starts by lying on the floor, and the woman lowers herself onto him. Once in position, she then folds each leg until she’s sitting cross-legged on top of him. This position works well because it stops from thrusting too deep which can cause discomfort if on the bigger side. You can maintain stimulation by rolling her hips and bottom in a circular motion. Lean forward, back, or sideways to control how deep the thrusts are where on the vaginal wall is targeted.
