This classic pose can be a lot of fun, especially with the use of pillows under the receiving partner to help make holding the position easier. It also gives excellent access to the anus and genitals to the person who is behind. In fact, it’s one of the most common go-to anal sex positions there is.
If there’s a downside to this position it’s that both parties can’t kiss or have fun with each other’s chest or nipples but, considering how much fun it can be, it’s a pretty good trade off.
Make It Better: One of the best things about doggy-style is that the partner doing the thrusting can increase the intensity of those thrusts by holding on to his partner's thighs. Even better? Use a Doggie Strap from Sporthseets. This will give you all the leverage you could want - and save your or your partner's hips from wear and tear.
While this one can be a tad tricky to get into if one partner has a penis, this position has a lot going for it. For one thing, it’s great for people with possible back problems; it also makes for a relaxed and cuddly sex session.
The how is that both parties lay together, either facing each other or with one partner facing away. After that it’s just a matter of getting the genitals to have as good, and pleasurable, contact as possible.
Sometimes this means shifting around so those involved create a kind of sexual X, with the genitals at the center. But, again, a lot of the fun here is in experimentation.
Make It Better: With both partners' hands free, there's lots of room for a sex toy in this scenario! Try the Peace Vibe from Sportsheets; it's compact, powerful and great for all kinds of external stimulation.
Riding on Top
This one can be a bit more of a challenge, but it's still simple enough - and totally worth the effort.
The benefit here is that thrusting can come from the on-top partner as well as the one on the bottom - whatever works best!
One of the great advantages here is the sense of power and control the person on top can feel, as well as being the focus of the action on the part of the one on the bottom.
Make It Better: When the partner on the bottom of this position changes up the angle of their legs, fun and interesting things can happen! Use the Sportsheets Sex Sling to make it happen - and avoid a leg cramp!
Oral Sex Positions
Oral sex is the ultimate beginner sex position. It's adaptable and it's always interesting. Just find a fun way to connect and go for it! The 69 sex position is a classic to consider here.
Make It Better: It's good as is ... but a flavored warming lube can't hurt!
Getting That Beginner's Mindset
Sex should always be about pleasure, not working your way through the Karma Sutra. After all, sometimes, simple is best. If it feels good, go for it!
