In case you were wondering, Google searches for “best sex positions” have increased by 355 per cent in the last week.
Blame it on the fact we’re all home a lot more or that Valentine’s Day is coming up, but either way, it looks like a lot of us are looking for some new bedroom moves.
So if you’ve already given the best sex position for your star sign a try, see if any of these take your fancy…
1. Lotus sex position
Just like a hug… but sex. This position requires both partners to wrap their arms and legs around each other, with whoever is on the bottom able to hold their partner’s weight. But it’s the partner on top that’ll do all the movement work.
2. The splitting bamboo
If you’re wondering how this one is considered ‘lazy’ given the height of that leg, the key is to have it resting on the other person’s shoulder. The move allows for deeper penetration with little effort from both parties.
3. The plough
Now this one requires some work. It’s like the adult version of a wheelbarrow race. One partner leans on their arms while the rest of their body is lifted and held from behind. It’s a bit of hard work but everyone wins once the finish line is reached.
4. The Catherine wheel
This one may require some twisting and turning to get into position. Begin with one partner sitting with their legs crossed, then have the other straddle them, placing their legs around the torso. The original partner should then move one of their legs to be across the other’s middle. If you feel like a pretzel, it’s probably working.
5. The bridge
Put those yoga classes to good use and try ‘The Bridge’ if you’re feeling flexible. One partner should be on all fours facing the ceiling and pushing up to create a bridge. The other partner can then kneel and position themselves between the legs.
