Hot vax summer is here — so what better time to get more creative as we get back to getting it on? Sure, the same old vanilla sex positions are a great fall-back, but we'd argue this sultry season is the perfect moment to switch up how you're giving and receiving pleasure. Not only can exploring different sex positions help you to connect with your sexuality, but experimenting with oral sex can also be very useful for people who want to engage in sexual activity but for whom penetrative sex is not an option, due to personal preference, pain, trauma, or other reasons, says Casey Tanner, a certified sex therapist and expert for LELO. Here, six expert-approved oral sex positions that'll help you take advantage of all these steamy benefits. While the classic positioning involves one partner lying on their back while the other lies on top of them, there are many variations.
The 6 Best Oral Sex Positions, According to Sex Therapists
Oral sex can be one of the most incredible, orgasmic kinds of partner play around. It can also be one of the most awkward and uncomfortable. And you really do have options. Though our visions of oral sex typically involve blowjobs, 69, and even the occasional face-sit, the oral sex position landscape is far more varied. There are plenty of positions that involve both partners reclining so no one has to worry about sitting on top of anyone else —and plenty that offer exciting spins on tried-and-true favorites. Orgasms and intimacy await—scroll down. Have the partner receiving oral sex lie down on the bed or floor preferably a carpet—nobody wants to give or receive head on cold tiles with their head propped upon a pillow.
People can enjoy sex in all ways, positions, and styles, and it doesn't have to include penetration. Does that mean it's still sex? Sex is anything you want the main course to be, and that includes oral sex. Oral sex is the act of using the mouth, lips, or tongue to stimulate a partner's genitals.
Oral sex can be an important part of your sex life, either as foreplay or as the main event. In fact, studies show that couples who give each other more oral sex report having more satisfying relationships. It's easy to find yourself coming back to the same oral sex position over and over, but there are many different options for you to try. Adding something new to your routine can make oral sex more exciting and you may find that some positions offer extra pleasure.
