…Because variety is the spice of your sex life.
Sex can be a great way to reconnect with your partner, or cement a growing bond in a new romance. Some couples are happy with the occasional mutually-satisfying quickie, or a regularly-scheduled weekend session that relies on the same ol’ reliable positions to get the job done.
These recommended sex positions to spice up the weekend with your lover are not only super stimulating and pleasurable, but they’re also crazy and hot AF.
1. The Gentle Spoons
This position is not only easy on the back, but highly intimate as your bodies benefit from full-length skin-to-skin contact. You simply lie in a spooning position, one behind the other. Use pillows beneath your arm and hips for added comfort.
2. The Snake
This is a great position for comfort, closeness, and clitoral stimulation. One partner lies their stomach and the other lies on top to approach from behind. The upper partner props themselves up on their hands or elbows, and you can place a pillow under the lower partner’s hips for support and/or added friction.
3. The “Rub Her” Cowgirl
One partner lies on their back with their feet on the mattress and legs bent. The other sits on top facing the supine partner’s feet and leans against their thighs for extra support (and pressure against their clitoris, if they have one). This is the ultimate position for both comfort and pleasure.
4. The Swing Set
One partner lies on their back with their legs hanging off of the bed and their feet on the floor. Place pillows beneath their head and hips for comfort and to adjust the angle according to your pleasure preferences. The other stands on the ground between their legs and places their hands against their hips as they rock, grind, and slide inside.
5. Knees-Up Missionary
One partner (the one with the more sensitive back) lies on their back and the other lies on top supported by pillows. The lower partner pulls their legs up, bending their knees to reduce pressure.
Researchers have looked into the best positions for back pain, but ultimately each person’s risks and injuries are unique, so the best advice is to take it slow, experiment, and be sure to communicate your needs (and any discomfort) to your partner from the onset.
So don’t go full-on circus, people. Instead, focus on flow and fun and being in the moment. You got this!
