There are many benefits to having sex. It’s a great stress reliever and a mood elevator. It boosts your immune system, it’s also great exercise and it can lower your blood pressure. The list goes on and on.
Or it should be. Are you and your partner stuck in a rut? Are you having trouble turning it on? This is common, especially if you’ve been with the same partner for a while. Well, let’s help dig you out of that rut and bring back the sexy in your sex life.
Sometimes it’s a quick fix and you may need to switch things up. This can be as simple as having sex in another room. You can buy new lingerie. You can have morning sex instead of always doing it at night after a long day of work. There are many different ways to spice up your sex life.
Or maybe you are just sick of missionary position? Maybe your missionary-to-doggy-style combo has become way too predictable? Here are some new positions thanks to Elite Daily that will help you steam things up in the bedroom.
You may have seen a less sexy version of this in your last boot camp class. The woman gets on her hands and knees, facing away from the man. The man, who is standing, lifts the woman's ankles up and wraps them around his waist. The woman keep her hands on the ground as the “wheelbarrow,” while the man penetrates. You better start working on your core muscles, ladies.
This is a simple one if you are looking to do a little less work. First, have your partner hoist you up onto a counter. We’ve all seen this in our favorite romantic comedies, so he will know what to do. That lift alone is super sexy and will get you off to a good start. Your mouths should be at a good level to kiss each other and your eyes should be at a good level to make some steamy eye contact. And ladies, you get to sit there while he penetrates and does all the work!
This one is also fun but you’ll need to have a washer/dryer in your place to make it happen.
First, put whatever you are going to wear to bed into the dryer. Then your partner will hop up on top of the dryer with his legs hanging over and you will get on top of him, sitting on his lap sitting the same way with your legs hanging out. Go for a little seated romp and when you are done, take those warm clothes out of the dryer and put them on. This is a great position to keep you warm for the winter.
Now we know that David Copperfield isn’t the sexiest magician, but use your imagination. This one is for the ladies! Ladies you will lay down on your back and put a pillow under your pelvis. Your partner will go down on you in that position, with your butt slightly raised in the air. This raised position will feel even better than it already does when he goes down on you. It’s a simple maneuver that will go a very long way. What it has to do with David Copperfield? No idea. Maybe because your orgasm will appear out of thin air? I tried.
This one is not too overwhelming. You will need a mirror for this one. Slip a mirror under you and your partner while you engage in the sex position of your choice. Doggy style will probably give you the best view, but missionary or cowgirl will work as well. The mirror will give you both a show and help you spice things up a little.
Now, if you are looking for some more positions, here are a few more to try. Warning: these next few positions are more advanced. They are not meant to intimidate anyone or throw anyone’s back out. Try these at your own risk.
Does the thought of the Amish churning butter turn you on? Perfect — then you will love this next move. First, you start by doing a shoulder stand with your legs over your head. Your partner then sits on top of you, gyrating up and down for penetration. Think the cowgirl position, except the man is on top and instead of riding a bull, he's churnin' butter. I told you that these were a little out there.
Have you been practicing your yoga? Well, this shoulder stand is for my yogis! This position is probably done best on a hard surface so you can keep your balance. While you do a shoulder stand with your legs stretched high into the air, your partner penetrates you from behind. He should grab you by the legs or ankles to help support you. You will probably need it unless you have abs of steel.
Here is another crazy one. If your partner has any back issues, do not attempt this one. In this position, your partner does a backbend aka a bridge. Then, you sit on top of them and ride them. It’s like a next-level reverse cowgirl.
So now you have some fun ideas for new positions for all different levels. Share these ideas with your partner and try some of them out! Start slow and then move on to the next and you might just find the perfect one for you and your partner.
Also play around with fantasies, role playing, dirty talk and sexting. Some sexy texts throughout the day could be just to thing to get you excited about the sex waiting for you at home. Good luck with these new moves and please don’t hurt yourself!
