Still in lockdown with your SO and tired of your three go-to sex positions? Hey, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with having a routine that works. But, there’s no harm in throwing in something new every once in a while to see what happens. Especially now that the days seem to melt into one long run of working in pyjamas, eating pasta for supper and baking banana bread. Enter these four lockdown sex positions.
Even if you start things off with a new position and then go back to your tried and tested one to finish off, that’s good too. Orgasming isn’t always the easiest thing for us women, so it’s likely that you may only have one or two positions that actually work for you. So it’s important that you do you. Boo.
To get things started, why not show these moves to your partner and propose that you give them a try next time the mood takes you? Who knows? Maybe it’ll be right then.
One Up a.k.a. Over Your Shoulder, The Hamstring Stretch
Benefits: This position is ideal for women who are particularly sensitive along one side of the clitoris.
Lie on the edge of the bed with your partner kneeling on the floor in front of you. Raise one of your legs and support it by wrapping your hands around your hamstring just below the knee. With one hip raised, you’ll be able to add some movement to aid their stroking or to help move them to the perfect spot.
Now try this: Wriggle around a little to help them get the rhythm right.
Spork a.k.a. Spoon and Fork Combo, Scissoring
Benefits: Offers a natural bridge to more creative positions.
While you lie on your back, raise your right leg so your partner can position themselves between your legs at a 90-degree angle and enter you. Your legs will form the tines of a spork, a spoon-and-fork utensil. You can do this with them facing you or facing your back.
Now try this: If you are limber, lift your left leg up to increase the depth of penetration.
David Copperfield a.k.a. Trick and Treat
Benefits: This position is the pièce de résistance for women who prefer a strong, upward stroking motion.
Lying down, place a pillow under your hips to tilt your pelvis up. Bend your knees so you can place your feet on their shoulder blades.
Now try this: Get your partner to amplify their oral efforts with a simple sleight-of-hand trick: while they lap away, they can use their hands to push gently upward on your abdomen, stretching your skin away from your pubic bone, and helping to coax the head of your clitoris out from beneath the hood.
The Lazy Man a.k.a. The Squat Thrust
Benefits: Puts you in control; maintains intimacy.
Place pillows behind your partner’s back and have them sit on the bed with their legs outstretched. Now straddle their waist, feet on the bed. Bend your knees to lower yourself onto their penis or strap-on, using one hand to direct it in. Just by pressing on the balls of your feet and releasing, you can raise and lower yourself on the shaft as slowly or quickly as you please.
