5 Sex Positions You Can Do With Your Clothes On
For those nights when you’re in an I-have-to-have-you-now kind of mood.
Having sex generally means rolling between the sheets totally naked, enjoying the skin-on-skin intimacy that makes you feels so connected and excited.
But getting it on with your clothes on can be thrilling too. The only body parts exposed are your most pleasure-receptive erogenous zones, so they become the main focus of attention. Clothed sex also feels very primal. “It connotes spontaneity, ravishment, and intense desire for your partner,” says New York City sex therapist Stephen Snyder MD, author of Love Worth Making: How to Have Ridiculously Great Sex in a Long-Lasting Relationship.
Clothes can often work as a prop that changes the way sex feels, and if you keep them on during a hookup, buttoning them back up is one less thing you have to do after the action is over and you want to part ways. Plus, if being naked makes you feel vulnerable, having clothes on can provide a boost of confidence. And hey, sometimes the room is just too damn cold to strip down, and you end up with the wrong kind of goose bumps. Not sexy.
Ready to get it on—without baring it all? Try these five positions, ideal for getting down and dirty without disrobing.
This woman-on-top variation gives you control over both the speed and intensity. While your partner sits on a chair, his pants just unzipped enough, straddle his lap. Push aside your skirt or dress and then your underwear so he can enter you, and keep your blouse on; he can be a bit rougher touching and stroking your breasts when they’re covered up by fabric.
This face-to-face position can be super intimate,” says certified sex educator Alicia Sinclair, CEO of sex toy lines b-Vibe, Le Wand and The Cowgirl. She notes that it’s ideal for the car; anyone who might see you won’t suspect what’s really going on because your tops are covered. Not wearing a skirt or dress? Push down your pants a bit and try this position with you sitting on his lap facing the same direction.
Up against the wall
For this position, stand facing your partner with your back against a wall. After he unzips his pants, lift up your dress or skirt and push your underwear aside. (If you’re wearing pants, unzip and lower them on your hips, and lift one leg out of them.)
Keeping one leg on the floor, lift your other leg up and wrap it around your partner’s waist. (You may wind up on tippy-toes, if there’s a big height difference; standing on a few books or a stool can help.) Grip his shoulders or upper arms with your hands. For your partner, notes Dr. Snyder, this is a pretty athletic position—he might even work up a sweat. Still, his hand can easily move inward to stroke your clitoris.
Another twist on this position: wrap both legs around his thighs, so that your only support is from him lifting you and the wall bracing your back. With one or both legs up, your clothes can act as a cushion as he thrusts inside you.
