If your once romantic Valentine’s Day has become "Netflix and Chill" or worse yet, just chill, it’s time to spice things up in the bedroom. I asked sex and intimacy experts for their favorite positions to heat it up on Valentine’s Day and all year long.
Logan Levkoff, sexuality and relationship educator says, “I think it is important for people to know how to incorporate vibrators into their partner play. Side by side is great for feeling connected and having direct access to the clitoris, which is so important for the people who have them.” Ladies, she’s talking to you!
Dr. Kat Smith, America’s Intimacy Expert, gave me the nitty gritty on these five positions that are romantic enough for Valentine’s Day but hot enough for 50 Shades.
This one is sure to hit her g-spot. The man stands at her rear and enters her from behind while the woman bends slightly forward. The man holds her hip and shoulder for balance.
If you’re tired of doggy style, give another kind of animal magnetism a whirl:
A little like the doggy style with her lowered head, she arches her back like in a cat in a stretch.
This one requires a little flexibility, so for you yoga mamas, try this out:
He kneels and brings her up onto his thighs. She is on her back with legs spread into a V. He holds her ankles and thrusts.
Have you ever dreamed of one of those romantic carriage rides through Central Park? Well this is basically the same thing except you’re naked:
Standing, he holds her up at waist level. She assists with legs clasped around him as he bounces her to pleasure.
While we’re on the topic of old-fashioned vehicles, why not give this one a try:
She lies face down on the edge of the bed. He lifts her legs and steps in between her legs while she holds herself up on her forearms.
C’mon, it’s Valentine’s Day. You can phone it in and fake an O the other 364 days of the year but today, try something new.
