Sure, a night of boring sex might still be the most entertaining evening you’ve had all week, but that’s no reason to settle into a lame routine in bed—especially when there are so many opportunities for greatness. In order to take your sex life to the next level, we asked four sexologists to share the bedroom tricks you haven’t tried yet, but should. Like, right now. Trust us. Besides, Valentine's Day is the perfect excuse... we mean holiday to get more adventurous in the bedroom.
1. The Not So La-Z-Boy
If you’ve always gotten it on horizontally, it’s time to think vertical. Sex coach Dr. Patti Britton, PhD says that standing sex is a huge rush that will make you feel like the most macho sex god around—and your partner will agree. It helps if you’ve been doing your squats, but if you need a little extra assistance for this move you thought only worked in movies, Britton says there are a few tricks to pulling it off without breaking a hip. Lean against a wall, or even better, put one foot up on a comfortable chair for balance. Have her wrap her legs around your waist—and watch her get literally swept off her feet by your prowess.
2. X Marks The O Spot
Even if you’re pretty sure you’re a master of oral, here’s something you’re probably missing: “There’s a little spot right above the clitoris called the front commissure,” says Dr. Ian Kerner, PhD., a sex counselor and founder of Good in Bed. “If a woman is on top and grinding against the pelvis, it will hit that spot. You can also apply pressure with the top of your teeth where it meets your gum, while also applying rhythmic stimulation with your tongue or a sex toy.” Thing is, she might not even realize how sensitive she is there—so it’s a surprise move that will surely blow her mind.
