As someone who spends practically all her time thinking, reading, and writing about all things pertaining to sex and relationships, I'm always on the lookout for tips to have better sex. Even if you're totally satisfied with your sex life as-is, I'm a firm believer that there's always room for improvement in your sex life: there's just so much to learn and experiment with, whether it's a hot new position or some sage wisdom that will change your outlook on sex as a whole. And, while there's nothing wrong with using the internet to read up on ways to have hotter sex (otherwise I'd be out of a job), sometimes the best sex advice comes from those we're close to IRL.

In a recent AskReddit thread, one user asked people what the best sex advice they've ever gotten from someone was, and it's legitimately inspiring to see all the unlikely sources of sexual wisdom — including older siblings, grandparents, and even 70-year-old nuns. But even more important than who gave the advice, of course, is the advice itself: from always peeing after sex to using pillows to your advantage in the bedroom, it seems like there are endless tips that can improve the way you have sex. The best part? There's no one way to have sex that's better than any other, and as long as everyone is a consenting adult, you can literally and figuratively take pleasure in experimenting to your heart's content.

If you're curious about the great sex advice other people have gotten over the years, here are 17 tips that are practically guaranteed to improve your sex life in some way, shape, or form.
