In the wonderful world of sex, there’s getting down and then there’s getting down. For connoisseurs of a sensual romp — we’re talking about our true scholars and geeks when it comes to sex and sexuality — there’s always a sexy new position, a new sensation or experience to try out with your partners for any occasion.
Don’t get us wrong; we’re always down for a casual quickie or some moderately augmented missionary to give a quick O, but why not branch out and take things to a whole new level? After all, your sex life is a living, breathing and evolving thing that deserves a bit of TLC to keep you and your partner(s) entertained and satisfied through the years. Sometimes all it takes is a brand-spanking-new position to get the party started and to reignite some important conversations about what feels best in the act. (It’s okay if those things change or if you just want to test something out!) Speaking of spankings, you can throw one of those in for good measure too. You know, if that’s what you’re into.
We also know you’re busy and you don’t want to waste that precious alone time researching impossible pretzel-like contortions to try out. Instead, we’ve compiled 69 fun positions we think you should try ASAP. Ironically, good old-fashioned 69 isn’t on the list, because as the very wise Carrie Bradshaw once wrote, “It’s my belief that the last time anyone actually enjoyed the 69 position was in 1969” — and we felt that.
So here you go: 69 (Nice) sex positions to try out
