A Reader's Favorite- sex positions

You know what they say about sex? It is all about position, position, position. (Or is that pertaining to real estate? ;-) Another reader shared this: "I have always had a high interest in the various sexual intercourse positions." Variety in positions is good but what we do in each position, how we perfect it to suite us and our spouse, is what heightens the eroticism.

Who in your marriage bed decides on the position-- you, your spouse or both of you? How do you keep the hum-drum out of positions? Please post all comments you have on this topic.

Ahhh, I'm always up for a new position. Like everyone else, we have our set of favorites, but sometimes we do things differently to spice it up a bit. As for who decides, I would say it's 70% me and 30% DW - used to be 95% me but she's taking more control which is awesome :) I like this site: http://www.sexinfo101.com/sp_index.shtml for sex positions. Some of them are definately NOT doable for normal people, I mean, when I am erect my penis would break in two if I bent it backwards :O However, there's a ton of variations here, have fun!

70/30 is not bad at all, mwm. I like that 101 site too. Some positions are best left to contortionists. I know there are a few of them in the Kama Sutra game that we would never even try. My motto is, "If it's not fun, why do it?"

I tend to be the more adventurous one as far as positions, but what is nice is that my wife has lately been good at suggesting or doing slight modifications. It is amazing how much just a slight tweak of depth, or motion can make a huge difference in a given positiion.

DW and I use at least 3 positions everytime we have sex. The last time was 4 I think. Lets see how did it go?

1) OS on my by her. (does that count?)
2) WOT
3) missionary
4) sideways. her on her side with her upper leg raised up for easy access by me.
4) her lying on her front for rear entry by me. Me laying on her so I could feel her whole body. Her legs were together whie mine were outside hers.
5) we finished doggy style with her head on the bed and her butt in the air.

So it looks like 5 positions last time.

TMI? :)

As to who decides. I do. Her preference is that I make all the decisions and have all the initiative in sex.

As she put it while we were having sex the last time. She wants me to take my pleasure from her as she always gets pleasure from my doing so and always has several orgasms.

That website you posted is great. I loved the sex in space positions!

Mark, you have us beat on the number of positions within sessions. Our usual number is 1-2 although we have done 3-4 a few times. But hey, we're in our 50's so I can't complain on what we don't do.

Gee, I didn't know it was a contest. :)

I think if you added all the positions you and GR do in a week you guys would win, big time! ;)

Well, we do have sex often. I was just teasing GR this morning. We had sex last night and then went to sleep. This morning we sort of woke up together. Like I often do I asked him if he was horny. I don't like for him to leave the bedroom horny and I'm always up for sex. Half asleep he tells me 'no, that he's not' but within 5-10 min it was obvious that he was so we took care of it. Later I jokingly told him, "I'm beginning to think that you don't even know all the times that you are horny. You say you're not but then you are, lol."

If you're talking strictly about IC positions, we generally do 1-2 cause "once I'm in there neither of us wanna stop"! If we do do more than one its because some positions are what I call "warm up" - they feel good but don't necessarily result in an O or a good O for one of us. We usually end up in doggie or "modified missionary" where her legs are crooked over my arms and I'm basically kneeling. Very deep penetrating position and she can go from "this is nice" to a fantastic O in less than 30 seconds - I love to watch her!

Nope, we're including any and all positions.

Are you sure you're not slipping some viagra into his wheates? ;)

Gemma said...

I'm sure. He doesn't eat Wheaties and he's not taking viagra. He's just a high-SD guy.

I think this describes us as well. Dw is having orgasms no matter how many positions we use but I like to get to one final one so I can have mine. Usually doggie style as well.

We have tried this but it doesn't work as DW finds it to deep and it hurt her.

What husband doesn't love to watch, and hear this! ;)

OK then! Counting various OS and manual positions, we probably cover 4-6 different positions then move on to IC. Generally we start out side by side doing manual, taking turns, then move to OS, one at a time or sometimes 69, her on top. If toys are involved then there's more positions, then we move on to IC and if we've been doing many positions, when we get to IC we usually just go for it cause we're both ready to explode (DW again!).

One of our newfound favorite positions started when I bought the Liberator wedge. Her behind up on the wedge, legs spread, me laying between them, that wonderful awe-inspiring view of her open for me - awesome! OS in this position brings her quickly to mind-blowing orgasms, usually at least two...
