Making love outside on a deck chair is not only creative, but memorable and romantic as well, especially when the sun is going down, according to Dr. Ava Cadell, spokesperson for The Experience Channel and renowned love and sex therapist. "The man lies on his back, and the woman lies on top of him with her legs closed. This gives him a tighter sensation and puts added pressure on her clitoris. It's the perfect position for caressing her breasts. Plus, it's empowering for the woman, as she is in control of the speed, depth and angle of penetration.”
How awesome is the name of this position!? It's a rear-entry position (doggy style), so it's very visually exciting for a man, says Ava. But don't worry — it can be just as pleasurable for a woman too. Ava suggests putting a pillow underneath your tummy with an icepack wrapped in a towel to help beat that summer heat.
Yep, you guessed it! This position is absolutely ideal for a swimming pool and has the added advantage of allowing for prime G-spot stimulation. "The man should stand in the shallow end with his back firmly braced against the edge of the pool,” advises Ava. "He can hold onto the woman's hips as she spreads her legs wide open and does the breaststroke motion, opening and closing them for deeper orgasmic intensity.” Sounds fun!
The Teddy Bear Position
Summer is the perfect season for a picnic on a secluded beach or even in your own backyard. After feeding each other sensually, Ava recommends giving each other an intimate foot rub with some chilly ice water. Then, have him get into the classic marriage proposal position, while you climb on top and straddle him. "The Teddy Bear Position is romantic and great for kissing, eye gazing and cuddling. The woman can bounce on his penis for the right amount of penetration as well.”
Ready to get it on!? One popular summer sex position is for the woman to stand on the floor and bend over the bed or a table, says AASECT Certified Sexuality Educator, Charlie Glickman, Ph.D. "If she's wearing a skirt, it's great for quickies, like during a BBQ. There's minimal clothing to worry about, and it can be done anywhere there's a convenient surface, such as the shallow end of a pool with her leaning over the edge.”
3 Smart summer sex tips
Good Vibrations Staff Sexologist Dr. Carol Queen shares:
- Slow it down! "Although summer love might seem like the best time for a quickie, it's even better if you turn on a fan and slow things all the way down. This will likely help your tryst to last longer and increases the amount of arousal you can build up. It may even make your orgasms stronger."
- Don't forget to hydrate. "Whatever position you do assume, be sure to stay extra-hydrated, particularly if you don't move slowly. Vigorous intercourse on a hot day can make you wonderfully sweaty and disheveled but will also deplete your body of water and electrolytes. Iced tea and summery alcoholic beverages dehydrate you, so work a bottle of water or a sports beverage into your plans."
- Use silicone lube in the water. "If you do have a safe body of water in which to frolic, water-based lubricant (as well as her vaginal secretions) will rinse right off. Stash a bottle of silicone lube in your pool bag instead."
