7 Quiet Sex Positions You Need When You’re a Guest in Someone’s House
Going home for the holidays? Here’s how to pull off guest-bedroom booty.
Heading home for the holidays with a significant other can be a lot of fun—especially because you’ll escape the “so are you seeing anyone?” interrogation you usually endure from relatives. What’s not so fun? Trying to enjoy sexy alone time with your partner while you’re staying at a family member’s house. Sure the thrill of almost getting caught can be a turn-on…but not when it’s by grandma.
The key to pulling off guest bedroom booty is by keeping things quiet. “Any position on the floor or with your feet on the ground will prevent noise from a squeaky bed or loose headboard,” says Chelsea Holland, a sex and relationship therapist with the Intimacy Institute. These 7 hot and exciting positions meet that criteria. (Just please, remember to lock your bedroom or bathroom door before you get busy.)
It’s super intimate, requires no acrobatic moves that might knock things to the floor, and the string of oh oh ohs you let out when you reach orgasm can easily be muffled by your partner putting their hand soft and tight over your mouth. “There’s a good reason why this position is a classic,” says Lisa Finn, a sex educator at sex toy emporium Babeland. “Missionary allows partners to be face-to-face for some hot eye contact or even a makeout session. Plus, having that close contact and grinding against bodies is a great way to stimulate against your clitoris.”
An update to the classic 69, this position has both partners lying down on their sides with their heads between each other’s legs for lots of intense oral action. “Being side-to-side instead of on top of each other not only makes it easier to breathe, but it also takes the strain off of your necks (use pillows for extra comfort) and allows for incorporating hands, since you won’t need them to support your body weight,” says Finn. “Plus, it’s hard to moan too loud when your mouth is already busy.”
Shower sex can be awkward, but when you’re in someone else’s home, it has awesome advantages. Almost every bathroom door has a lock, and running water helps to drown out moans, groans, and the sound of bodies bumping and grinding. The water will also help you stay in the moment by blocking off distracting noise coming from the rest of the house. “Try it with one leg propped up on the tub for comfort,” says Jess O’Reilly, PhD, Astroglide’s resident sexologist. “And make sure to bring a tube of silicone lube in there with you, because the water washes away your natural lubrication.”
