Worried that flowers and chocolates won’t cut it this year? If you’re looking for something a bit more memorable this Valentine’s Day, how about trying one of these 5 different sex positions.
Trust Cupid to have given his name to an imaginative new twist on the trusty Spoon. Lie on your side with your partner behind you. Then raise your upper leg up so your partner can use that to steady themselves as they move back and forth inside you.
A perfect way to end your romantic evening, this position gives your partner the chance to touch and caress your body freely. Add a cheeky sex toy or play lube into the mix and this position could be even more of a winner.
The Love Cradle
Ready to test your powers of balance with this position, which can also be known as the Jelly Fish? Of course, you are.
Begin by having your partner squat on the floor, using only their legs for balance. Then, facing your partner, straddle them and wrap your legs around their bum as they penetrate you. With all the weight of both of you on your partner’s legs, you’re free to start moving up and down, controlling the tempo as you wish.
Sometimes a change of scenery is all it needs to fire your passions. Instead of going out to a fancy restaurant, try cooking a lovely meal as part of a romantic night in, with amazing sex for afters.
When dinner’s finished, don’t worry about the washing up. Instead, have your partner lift you onto the kitchen counter and wrap your legs around their bottom as they enter you, in a variation of the Stand and Carry position. With your arms around their neck, they can slightly lift your hips as they thrust into you. Beats coffee as the perfect way to end the meal.
Also known as Reverse Cowgirl. Have your partner lay on his back on the bed to enjoy this position. Then mount him with your back facing towards them as they enter you. You’re in charge now as you move up and down, controlling the tempo all the way.
Whoever Rose was, she sure was lucky if this position is anything to go by. Lie on your back with a pillow under your bum and have your partner kneels between your legs.
Raise your hips so your partner can enter you. They may want to hold onto your legs for extra support and to keep you steady, as well as control the pace and rhythm. This is another position where a sex toy or play lube can add an extra dimension to the fun and make it a Valentine’s to remember.
Whichever position you decide to go for (and there’s no need to limit yourselves to just one), always be sure to use protection and wear a condom during sex.
