With April in full swing and the weather finally warming up, now is the perfect time to spring clean your sex life so it gets a little hotter, too. Don't get me wrong — I love the intimate, cuddly vibe of winter sex, but the
best sex positions for spring are those that bring you out of your (egg)shell and get you feeling active again after the long, cold winter.
For me, spring always feels like a chance to make a fresh start — and if I'm being honest, sometimes it's good to switch up your sex routine (because who likes to be
stuck in a sexual rut?). If you've spent the winter months holed up watching TV and having lazy, low-effort sex, now is your opportunity to make a change. Use the warm spring-y vibes as an excuse to get more creative and adventurous in the bedroom — or even take things outside, since the weather is so nice — and try out some sex positions that bring you out of your shell.
If you want to come out of your sexual hibernation and start spring off with a (literal) bang, here are seven
adventurous sex positions to try this month. 1 Three-Legged Dog
I'll be the first to admit that I don't try
standing sex positions often enough. Yes, you have to leave the comfort of your bed — but the payoff will be worth it.
Stand facing your partner, raise one leg so it's level with their hip, then have them hold it up while you put your arms around his neck (or against a wall) for extra support. This position offers a fun new angle for penetration, and being somewhere other than the bed will make sex feel hotter and more urgent than usual.
2 Side-By-Side 69
There's obviously never a *bad* time to 69, but spring is a great opportunity to adopt a new, oral-focused attitude about sex.
Foreplay is an outdated concept: you don't need penetration for sex to be 'real.'
This spring, lay side-by-side in this intimate position with your partner and enjoy some mutual mouth pleasure — you'll get a slow build-up to an intense O.
3 Reverse Cowgirl
Sure, regular cowgirl sex is great and all, but there's something about reverse cowgirl that feels a little more adventurous. Eye contact during sex is super hot, but facing away from your partner has its perks too — namely, that you can work what you've got and make any embarrassing face you want without your partner seeing. Reverse cowgirl is a win-win: you get deep penetration plus tons of friction on your clitoris, and your partner gets a sexy show.
4 The Bridge
After a long winter, sometimes you just need to stretch your body out. Instead of traditional missionary, try this: have your partner kneel between your legs, then arch your back and bring your pelvis up to meet your partner's. The result? A sexier version of any yoga class you've ever been to, and an orgasm to top it off.
5 Doggy + Vibrator
Doggy style is the go-to position for most Millennials, according to SKYN Condom's
2017 Millennial Sex Survey. It offers deep, from-behind penetration, plus provides you (or your partner) the opportunity to reach for your clitoris and pay it a little extra attention.
Pro tip: Add a twist to regular doggy style sex by throwing a vibrator into the mix.
Incorporating sex toys into the bedroom is a great way to give your sex life a spring makeover, and doggy style is the perfect position for you or your partner to use the powerful vibrations to amp up your O. 6 Legs Up
If you want another spin on missionary, one of the easiest, hottest tricks is to simply rest your ankles on your partner's shoulders while he enters you. Not only does this new angle allow for deeper penetration and access to the G-spot, but it also gives your partner a great view, plus the chance to stimulate your nipples or clitoris.
7 Seated Backbend
For anyone feeling slightly adventurous but also a
tad lazy, the seated backbend position is one that's often overlooked but has a lot to offer. While sitting on your partner's lap, bring your hips flush with your partner's, then lean back to rest against their legs (holding their wrists for stability if need be). It's just outside-the-box enough to feel like a totally new sexual experience, but it's something even beginners can pull off.
Giving your sex life a seasonal update is something that long-term couples should seriously consider making a priority. There's nothing wrong with having a 'routine' or a go-to favorite position, but
trying new things in bed and making an active effort to have hotter sex will only bring you and your partner closer together — just in time for the fun, flirty spring season.
