If your s*x life is a steady rotation of three or four positions (OK, two at most), and you’re craving something a little more adventurous, we’ve got you covered. Each of the following creative positions has a suggestion for how you can take things to the next level, heightening the experience and the intensity. We’d say “enjoy” but that’s basically a given.
>’s a twist on the classic reverse cowgirl. Have your partner lie down, and get on top facing his feet—but instead of sitting up at a 90-degree angle, lower yourself to a 30-degree incline. In this pose, you’ll really control the motion as you move back and forth. The trick to this position is to be cat-like, leaning onto your hands toward the end of the bed instead of keeping your spine perpendicular to the bed.
Take it to the next level: If he finishes first, invite a pulsating s*x toy to the mix—and finish on your own while your partner watches. Or, if you can tell he’s about to come, dismount and hover above him using the toy for a few moments, before climbing back on.
Think of this move as extended foreplay. Well before you head to the bedroom, place a small bullet-like massager inside your v**ina and hand the remote over to your partner. He’ll enjoy watching you squirm on the couch or across the dinner table, and the extended tease will make the s*x that much hotter when it happens.
Take it to the next level: Swap the vibrator for a couples one which stays inside of you while he enters. Each time you feel like you’re about to explode he should change the settings and move you into a different position.
Lie tummy-down on the couch. Drop your leg that’s closest to the edge of the couch onto the ground; rest your other leg on the arm of the couch. Then, have your partner enter you from behind—this couch s*x variation on spooning provides really deep penetration.
Take it to the next level: Since your bottom is exposed, you’re in an ideal position for a little 50 shades of foreplay.
This move is a hybrid of doggy style and reverse cowboy. Lie on your stomach with your legs pressed tightly together and get comfortable with your head and arms resting on a pillow. Have him climb on top of you backward with his face at your feet. For you, this is a lazy position: He’s in charge of getting inside you and controlling the movements. Your partner should keep his chest elevated, and exert more effort from his arms—as if he’s doing a downward dog yoga pose or the butterfly stroke in a pool—so that he doesn’t slip out.
Take it to the next level: To increase the intensity, he can blindfold you, or tie your arms together to really restrict your movement. And, of course, this position makes it easy to transition into an*l s*x
