He’ll love these — and you will, too.
If the option of mediocre sex is on the table and the only other choice is a fairly decent blow job and a six-pack of craft beers, it’s quite possible sex will lose in spectacular fashion. Yes, it’s true: Men, whom many women have been taught would rather have sex than breathe good, quality oxygen, do have preferences when it comes to positions. And get this: Many even favor quality (!!) over quantity.
Now, if all of this makes you feel a bit nervous and you’re finding yourself wondering what parlor tricks you’ll have to pull off to keep your sex life fresh, rest assured most men aren’t looking for fox tail butt plugs (but if you are, today’s your lucky day because they do indeed exist). These men came forward to reveal their favorite sex moves — and most proved tamer than you might imagine.
1. Take It Slow
“I like to take it slow, with a lot of oral from both sides. Heavy amounts of kissing, heavy petting. Both excessively sucking on random parts of the body, slow tongue movements across random body parts, etc. Generally, the licking progresses into sucking, but a few early sucks never hurt anyone.” —Michael F., 25, San Diego, California
2. Laying On Our Sides
“I really like it when we’re on our sides, facing each other, because it’s intimate but we can also be aggressive. We can look at each other while we’re fucking, but this position also lets us both have control over the speed and intensity and my thrusting. My girlfriend tells me there’s something about sideways sex that targets her clit in the right way — it doesn’t hurt that she comes a lot quicker this way.” — James P., 35, Brooklyn, New York
3. Ankles Over Shoulders
“I don’t have the biggest penis in the world, but the position that makes me feel like I’m breaking my girlfriend (in a good way) is when she’s on her back and I throw her ankles over my shoulder and penetrate her. It makes penetration feel deeper for us both, especially if her butt is hanging a little bit off the bed.” —John J., 29, Phoenix, Arizona
4. Sex On the Couch
“I like it when she straddles my penis as I’m sitting in a chair or on the couch. I can see and touch everything, including her breasts and clit. I know a lot of guys like reverse cowgirl and it’s hot to see a girl’s ass and everything, but I always feel like it bends my penis to the point where it might break.” — Peter C., 31, Asheville, North Carolina
5. Doggy Style
“Doggy, all the way. I’m an ass man so, for me, there’s nothing better than watching her ass come straight at me. My current girlfriend isn’t into anal sex, which is fine, but doggy makes me feel like we’re having anal, but better: there’s no chance I’ll wind up with an strange “surprise” on my penis when we’re finished.” — Brian S., 27, Richmond, Virginia
6. Cowgirl Position
“Cowgirl is better than reverse cowgirl and doggy because parts of her body bounce, I can touch and feel every part of her body, and I get to see her face and her reactions. You can’t underestimate how hot that is.” —Paul B., 37, New York, New York
7. Sex In Front of a Mirror
“Anything in front of a mirror — literally — anything in front of a mirror is 100,000 times better than without a mirror. Watching my girlfriend give me a blow job on her knees in front of a mirror is the hottest thing I’ve ever seen, but so is looking over and watching her ride me. Mirrors give us a chance to go where our eyes can’t and it’s the closest analog to both acting in andwatching a dirty movie.” — Andrew A., 37, New York, New York
“69 can be amazing — but only if you’re around the same height. My wife seems to feel less self conscious about getting oral when I’m down on her at the same time, so she really lets loose and reciprocates by deep throating and going harder sucking at my penis. All in all, it’s a win.” — Tom F., 41
9. Sex From Behind, Laying Down
“My girlfriend and I like it when she’s submissive so the move that always gets me is her laying flat on her belly and me on top of her from behind. It feels more intimate than doggy because I can wrap my hands around her breasts or rub her clit at the same time. I also like being able to cover her body with mine and holding her hands down. It always feels like penis is as deep inside of her as possible in this position.” — Stefan, 31., Hawthorne, New Jersey
