Durex Sex Positions: Exercise

The Dolphin

Trying new positions with your partner is one of the best things about sex: there’s nothing that beats the thrill of discovering new sensations and sharing them intimately with your partner. Not many couples have ever tried this position before. It is detailed in the karma sutra, and it requires a high level of flexibility from both partners. So, start with a few stretches before you begin this position.

How to Do it:

She lays down on her back on the bed, and he stands at her feet. Now he holds her hips and raises them up to his, so that she puts all her weight on her shoulders, neck and head. Still holding the weight of her lower body, he starts to enter her slowly.

Advantages:

This pose puts a lot of pressure on her anterior vaginal wall, and if he is positioned right, he can hit her G-Spot. The position itself and the tensed muscles that both of them offer up help them reach orgasm quite quickly.

Disadvantages:

The geometry of the position is very difficult to achieve, and even more difficult to hold. Not only does he require excellent upper body strength, he will find it difficult to maintain the momentum for long. She is also more or less upside down, so she could feel dizzy. If the position is uncomfortable, it is better to try something else, or take a short break.

Alternatively:

Try this for those times when the head rush gets a bit too much. The Deck Chair position provides the same angle of entry as the Dolphin Pose, but with the weights of both partners firmly set on the bed. She lies on her back and he sits in front of her, his legs laid flat on either side of her body. He then lifts her legs and rests them on his chest whilst entering her, leaning back himself to achieve the desired angle of penetration.

The Catherine Wheel

Is there anything sexier than a position named after a medieval torture device? This position does not present as many challenges as the Dolphin pose does, but it allows for a bit more athleticism and takes some amount of practice before you can include it in your sex life. This position allows for good G-Spot stimulation as the penis is pushed up against the anterior vaginal wall. It also allows for prolonged deep penetration with the way the two are locked together.

How to Do it:

Start by sitting opposite each other on the bed. She then wraps her legs around his waist, drawing her thighs in tighter until she’s in a position where he can enter her. Now both lean back and he swings his leg over her waist, his foot resting on his other thigh. He rests on his elbow to balance himself and to anchor the momentum.

Advantages:

This position puts pressure on already tensed and tightened areas, thus resulting in pleasure for both him and her. Since they are locked together, the penetration is long and deep, and yet fast and energetic. She can also lay back so that her hands are free to touch herself and stimulate the clitoris.

Disadvantages:

This position is difficult to master and the contortions required can make it feel like you are assembling furniture. Not getting it right can kill the mood for sex, and make one or both partners feel awkward.

Alternatively:

She sits on the bed at waist height and spreads her legs for him to penetrate her. Once he has penetrated, she wraps her legs around his waist such that her heels meet at the backs of his thighs. This position is more straight forward, and feels less like acrobatics, while offering that prolonged, deep penetration that both partners seek.
