Looking for ways to spice up your sex life, try some of the most recommended sex positions. Switching things up, opening your mind and of course your body by exploring sex positions will actually be super beneficial. It will not only help build intimacy with your spouse but will also help you explore your own sexual preferences. Here’re some favourite sex positions to explore:

1. Spooning

Best for winter seasons when you just want to cuddle up, this sex position is usually done by lying down in a spooning position (refer to the graphic shown above). Both the partners need to be on their sides at the same direction. The spouse with the penis penetrates the spouse with the vulva from this angle. From here, the clitoris can easily be stimulated by either of the partners.

2. Missionary with a pillow

Another favourite during winters …well technically for all first timers. Intimacy is ideal because you’re looking straight in your spouse’ eyes. How this works is, the person with the vulva lays on their back with a pillow under their hips. Then the spouse with the penis gets between their legs and penetrates them from above. So, both bodies are positioned parallel to each other. If confused, just refer to the graphic above.

3. Sofa straddle

Highly recommended for those lazy days when the couch seems to be your favourite accessory in the house. How this works is, the person with the penis sits on the sofa, while the person with the vulva gets on top to be penetrated. This position works perfect if you’ve suddenly gotten into the mood while watching a romantic film. A little chocolate around can help the food exploration during sex too. Just be careful not to leave any remanent on the sofa though!

4. The lotus

Want to build more intimacy in your relationship? Nothing beats the lotus position. Guaranteed to get things hot, sticky and steamy, the lotus is a couple favourite. To try it out, have the spouse with the penis sit with their legs crossed. Next, the person with the vulva lowers themselves into their spouse’s lap and onto them, while wrapping their legs and arms around their spouse’s body. Then you begin to rock together. Refer to the image above for clarity.

5. Cow girl

Another classic couple favourite is the cow girl. To achieve this position, the penis owner is on their back, the spouse with the vulva straddles them, then lowers themselves onto their spouse while facing them. You can either do this while in an up-right, sitting position or lying flat against each other. Completely up to the both of you!

6. Advanced crab walk

The advanced crab walk can be an adventurous and creative position for many people. Please make sure when trying to achieve this, you bring along your patience. How this works is, both partners need to get into the crab walk position. Then the person with the vulva lowers themselves onto their spouse’s penis. The vulva owner can either lift their hips up or down, or gyrate. It's whatever feels best for both the partners.

7. Legs up missionary

Also known as the plow position, the legs up missionary position is another couple favourite. To achieve this, start in missionary position. The person with the vulva rolls their hips back a bit so their legs are in the air. From here, the spouse with the penis penetrates them, while the vulva owner rests their legs on their spouse's shoulders.

8. X Marks The Spot

Fantasized about have sex on the kitchen or dining table? You’re going to love this position for sure. While the person with the vulva lays on their back, they need lift their legs up and cross them at the ankles or knees. Whatever feels best out of the two. With their legs up, their spouse with the penis, while in a standing position, penetrates them, while using the legs of the vulva owner as leverage to pull themselves in deeper. It’s also a great position for people with smaller penises.

Good luck trying these! Just remember though, paying attention to each other while exploring new positions will help both partners maximise pleasure.
