While sex offers an array of health benefits, one of its more obvious advantages is that it involves some degree of physical activity and you can burn extra calories while having fun. If you are looking to expand your sexual repertoire in the sex-positions department, read on, experiment and find the perfect combinations that work for you. The positions described below involve one man and one woman, but can be modified to suit your group size and gender make-up!
The Director’s Chair:
In this position, the man sits upright in a chair while the woman sits on his lap with her back to him. She can lower herself onto his penis with her feet on the ground or crouch with her feet propped up on the chair on either side of his legs. The second option will require some serious flexibility on her part — thank goodness for yoga! She can tilt and circle her hips to stimulate her clitoris against his shaft or either partner can use his/her hands to reach down between her legs. This position is even more fun in front of a mirror!
This is just like the wheelbarrow you formed with a partner when you were a child with the man standing upright supporting the lower body of the woman whose hands are on the ground in a push-up position. Rather than holding her feet, the man brings his pelvis between the woman’s legs. He holds her up by her thighs and she uses her hands on the ground to support herself. Either partner can perform thrusting or circular movements in this position, but the woman will require considerable upper body strength to maintain the movement. If her arms tire, she can take a break, lower onto her elbows and forearms or perform mini butt-pops instead of larger movements.
The Swan Dive:
In this position the man sits on his buttocks with his back upright and his knees slightly bent. The woman straddles his pelvic area on her knees facing away from him so that they are both looking in the same direction. She lowers herself onto his penis and reaches behind her back to clasp her hands behind his neck for support as she leans forward arching her back. She should be on her knees with her body leaning forward at approximately a fort-five degree angle to the ground. Her feet come off the ground behind his back and he holds them in his hands for support. Both partners can rock back and forth gently for clitoral, penile and vaginal stimulation. Consider placing a pillow beneath her knees to reduce impact.
A 30 minute sex session burns an average of 200 calories, but you can burn a whole lot more with these more challenging positions tonight!
