Writing about sex positions online is an unsatisfying task. It's not that people don't have questions. They do. They ask me about the newest sex positions, the most common sex positions, the best sex positions. They want to know about oral sex positions, anal sex positions, positions to use during pregnancy, to reduce pain, and more.
The problem with these questions is that the answer is always the same: that depends. Our bodies are weird and unique, and the way we experience pleasure in them is completely idiosyncratic. This means no one can really tell you the best position for you and the only way you can find out more about sex positions, is to bring the creativity you have in other parts of your life, into the sexual arena, and start exploring.
Bringing that creativity into the bedroom (or closet, or wherever you are having sex) is a real struggle for many of us. So if you're feeling in a rut, or aren't even sure where to start, here are the six key elements that you can play with for any sex position.more than intercourse, and even if intercourse is your preferred main event, bringing your whole body to the position can radically alter how you feel having sex and how the sex feels. penis size, forget about sculpted bodies and perfectly quaffed hair. If there's no rhythm to your sex, every position is going to disappoint. But each position and each coupling has its own rhythm, you've just got to feel it.
By following the links above you can read a lot more about these six elements, but it's important to remember that any sex position is really an amalgamation of all six of these factors. One of the things that makes sex positions a pretty funny thing to think about or get into is that ultimately you've got (at least) two bodies moving often in different ways.
Hollywood may make sex look like a ballet, but in reality it's usually a little more chaotic. Which is to say that an essential element of all of these factors is that you are coming to sex with a sense of joy and at least a little sense of humor. They may be the only two universal requirements for good sex.
