9 Sex Positions You’ll Wish You Had Tried Sooner
If you’ve been in a relationship for a long time, chances are you’ll reach a place where you want to mix things up in the bedroom. The annoying thing about falling into a sex rut is that you know you should try something new, but the rut means you don’t really have much interest in doing so.
“All couples struggle to keep their sex lives interesting and passionate,” Jonathan Bennett, dating and relationships expert at Double Trust Dating, tells Bustle. “If you’re going through a dry spell, as long as it’s not a trend, realize that you’re normal!”
If you feel like you want to try something new to spice up your sex life, but the idea of tackling the Kama Sutra feels overwhelming, don’t worry — there are plenty of sex positions that might not be in your usual rotation, but as soon as you try them you’ll wonder why you didn’t embrace them earlier. A few simple tweaks or variations can help you rediscover your sex life, without feeling like you’re going to throw out your lower back. Looking for a way to mix things up? Here are nine sex positions that you’ll definitely wish you had tried sooner.
1. Modified Doggy
How To Do It: If you like doggy, start in that position and slowly lower down onto your forearms. If that’s not your thing, you can lay on your stomach and lift up onto your elbows, using a pillow beneath your hips if necessary.
Why You Should Try It: A gentle version of doggy with all of the same G-spot stimulation, it’s an intimate variation that you can relax into and enjoy.
2. Weak In The Knees
How To Do It: Sit. On. Their. Face. Seriously, it’s that easy. Use a pillow to help get your neck comfortable, then settle in.
Why You Should Try It: Straight-up face sitting can be intimidating, but it’s actually far more comfortable and easier to control than you might think. Use a vibrator if you really want to take things up a notch.
3. The Double Dip
How To Do It: Think of it as doggy style, but with an extra partner underneath. You can always take turns to make sure you both get a chance to experience the different sensations.
Why You Should Try It: If you want to try a threesome but have always found it too intimidating, this position shows you how easy it can be when one plus two equals three.
4. Doggy With Vibe
How To Do It: In traditional doggy, why not take things to the next level? Add your favorite vibrator, with either you or your partner in control of it, and you’ll find there’s a whole lot of sensation happening.
Why You Should Try It: If you like the intensity of doggy, this allows you to take things further with intense clitoral and G-spot stimulation. It’s a great opportunity to try having a blended orgasm, aka when you have both clitoral and G-spot stimulation simultaneously, if that’s your thing.
How To Do It: With your partner sitting cross-legged, lower down on top of them. You may need lube to help guide them inside of you.
Why You Should Try It: It’s an intimidating position to get into, but once you’re there it’s way more comfortable and relaxing than you might think.
