7 Ways Your Sofa Can Make Sex Better (Including Oral Sex!)
While a couch is great for watching shows, snuggling and taking a well-deserved nap, it can also be a fantastic and amazingly versatile tool for some truly wild sexual rides!
Ah, the sofa: perfect for show-binging, lazy afternoon naps and—for so many people—an introduction to the joys of sexual pleasure.
Couches and sofas bring with them their own unique benefits, as well as drawbacks, when it comes to sexual shenanigans. But that’s what we’re here for: to share some of our favorite positions and activities you and your preferred playmate(s) can use to get the most out of your couch—turning this inviting piece of furniture into a just-about-perfect sex stage.
Here are seven sex positions that are sofa-king perfect to perform on your couch:
1. The Sofa Oral Sex Position
Arguably one of the best ways to have sofa sex is orally. (Not to take anything away from the mighty bed; but as anyone who likes to give head can attest to, having to bend over someone who is laying down can be a pain in the neck—literally.)
However, with a sofa, the oral sex receiver can sit down and spread their legs while their partner can kneel on the floor in front of them. The person giving head doesn’t have to contort themselves like a circus performer to get their lips, tongue, and throat where they need to go.
This all, of course, depends on the oral sex receiver's anatomy—and carpeting. But if this sounds like it might work for you and your partner then, by all means, give it a shot. You might be very well, and especially pleasurably, surprised.

To add an extra level of pleasure, few things are better than the one and only LELO Ora 3.
This uniquely exciting vibrator manages to do everything the human tongue and lips can do and more—making it ideal for any cunniligus play session. In the Sofa Oral sex position or not.
2. The Take It for a Ride Position
Sure, you can certainly experience Missionary's laying-on-top delights on a sofa. But what with the back of the couch getting in the way, many have found it more than a tad challenging to get into the action when they can’t open their legs far enough.
This isn’t the case for a person riding on top in the Take It for a Ride position! If anything, this arousing position is even better on a sofa than a bed—the rider can hold onto the back of the couch, which gives them a nice way to balance and even lift themselves up to give the stroking more depth.
Equally, the person being ridden gets nice "snuggled" feeling being nestled against that back as well. In fact, some people really like that feeling of almost-confinement. But, as always, to each their own.

This position puts the receptive partner's nipples on full display. So, may we suggest incorporating a pair of Sportsheets Nipple Suckers into the mix?
Perfectly toeing the line between "enough suction to hold them in place" and "uncomfortable," this sweet sex toy sure to up the person on top’s arousal like nothing else can.

3. The Love Seat Position
Next up is the Love Seat position—and it's one that honestly does feel much better using a couch instead of a bed. Like with the sofa oral sex position, in this position one person sits on the couch facing outwards while their partner mounts them face-to-face.
Why? Well, for one thing, the person sitting on the couch has the support of the couch’s back—just the thing to keep their own back from getting sore. For another, the person doing the riding can, if they want, use that same furniture back to balance themselves. Win-win!
On top of all this, unlike using a chair, a couch is a pretty darned stable piece of furniture; there'll be no worries about wild enthusiasm knocking it, or the people playing on it, onto the floor.

No matter what they have under their belt, a surefire way to boost the person on top’s excitement is to add a Bijoux Indiscrets Clitoral Vibrator to the mix.
Easy to use and with just the right amount of arousing power, it’s just the thing to tickle everyone’s various fancies.

4. The Spoon Position
The Spoon position is a quite tender and even relaxed position that works perfectly for a couch or sofa. Simply put, one partner lays with their back against the back of the furniture while the other lays next to them, facing away or towards them—your choice.
The pluses here are:
- Face-to-face, this position is perfect for a make-out session or mutual masturbation.
- Facing the same direction, the Spoon position is a great way for one person to massage the other's chest while pressing their genitals against their partner's ass.
Best of all, the sofa back again can be used for leverage: Both parties can use it to get even more vigorous in their movements. Yum!
