You’re not sure what happened, but your sex life just isn’t what it used to be.
The two of you used to have so much fun in bed together. When you first started dating, you couldn’t keep your hands off each other all night long. But lately, you barely have the energy to get past 10pm. You’re stuck in an every night routine of froyo and Letterman in bed; meanwhile, he’s snoring … loudly. Not very sexy.
But you like sex and, of course, you adore the guy you used to like having sex with. So what’s the problem?
Shouldn’t sex be steamy and spontaneous like it is in the movies? Well, not always. The hard truth is, sex can get — dare we say it — boring after a while, especially when you’re in a long-term relationship in which you may have gotten a little too comfortable with your significant other. That’s OK, we’ve all been guilty of falling back our easy, reliable sex positions (cough, missionary, cough), because we’re just too tired at the end of the day.
What you both need is some new ideas! So instead, get your grind on with these seven fun, exciting sex positions (and be reminded of the sexy chemistry that first brought you two together).
The Magic Mountain
You knew you bought all those decorative throw pillows for a reason! So put them to good use by stacking them against the headboard of your bed into a makeshift mountain. Bend over the pillows and have your man embrace you from behind, molding his body to the natural curve of your body, so that both of you are facing the headboard. You’ll love the silky smooth feel of pillows beneath you just as much as he’ll love the feel of your silky, smooth skin beneath him. Let’s see him roll his eyes at your decorative pillow collection now!
Just because you’re looking for something fun and fresh, doesn’t mean you have to give up romance. Have him sit cross-legged and kneel down so that your legs are wrapped around his waist. You’ll love the face-to-face intimacy of embracing each other, and he’ll love being face-down in the action, so to speak.
Looking for a special between-the-sheets thrill? The Trapeze will do the trick! Let him sit at the edge of the bed and wrap your legs around his hips, relaxing so that you can bend your body backwards and you’re turned upside down. He’ll love taking in the view of you and, admit it, you kind of love the idea of lovemaking that (quite literally) turns your world upside down.
Is doggy-style losing it’s adrenaline-inducing appeal? Try this crazy move. Bend over a sturdy surface like the edge of a table and have him hoist you up by the hips so that your legs are stretched out and the bottom half of your body is suspended in mid-air. That’s right: the pleasure will make you feel like you’re flying. This position positively defies gravity, so you’ll both earn superhero status in the bedroom if you can pull this off.
The Seated Scissors
Instead of The Scissors sex position in which you intercross all four of your legs (how complicated does that sound, seriously?), try the much simpler seated version! Have him sit up straight with his legs open, straddle his side so that one leg rests on his hip and the other lays between his legs. You can control the depth and angle, while he controls the pace of your lovemaking. Hey, isn’t a relationship all about teamwork?
The Viennese Oyster
Needless to say, yoga helps with this bendy move. Lay on your back and lift both legs in the air so that your crossed ankles are above your head, and let him lay on top of you to do all the work. If you can’t completely put your feet behind your head, he can help by holding your thighs up. Either way, his eyes will be bugging out of his head at your sexy flexibility and all the more eager to satisfy your naughtiest needs.
Snuggling up on a lazy Sunday morning is about to get a whole lot sexier. While you’re spooning, lift your outside leg so that it overlaps his hip and wraps behind him. You’ll love that he can nibble on your neck and whisper sweet nothings in your ear, while he’ll love that your body is totally exposed to him for the grabbing. You can still be sexy even if you’re feeling a little bit lazy.
