Experience new heights of Intimacy

Intimacy is crucial in every relationship, but time and time again it’s an excellent idea to re-ignite that spark between both of you and discover new, more intimate ways to be with each other. It can be in the form of a dinner date, or a surprise weekend getaway – it can be even a simple hug or kiss. Preserving a level of intimacy in your relationship not only results in amazing sex, it can also keep your relationship going on for a longer duration.

Sex can be a perfect way to keep the physical and emotional bond strong in your relationship, however sometimes, especially in long-term relationships, sex ends up becoming routine and some of the intimacy starts slipping away. To keep the flame burning, here are five of the best sex positions for heightened intimacy, with some of our best tips to improve proximity with your partner.

What?

In this position, the man is sitting on the edge of a bed or chair, with the woman sitting facing him. The woman lowers herself onto the man and wraps her legs around the waist of the man.

How is it intimate?

As you face each other, you can go on a prolonged kissing session, which is always an incredibly intimate activity to do with your better half. Moreover, the face-off affords you with deeper penetration, as the woman can decide the angle of the depth of entry and the thrust speed. As your hands are idle, it is perfect for you to explore her better with your hands.

Missionary
