Interest in trying things out in the bedroom keeps the spark alive in a relationship. Not exploring other sexual positions can make your sex life dull. 


Kgomotso Masela, the founder of Spicey Luscious, a business all about encouraging women to have pleasurable sexual experiences, says one way to spice things up is to explore different sex positions. She says the three common positions couples are likely to go for are missionary, woman on top or doggy style.

She encourages couples to go through books like the Kama Sutra (an Indian text on sexuality, eroticism and emotional fulfilment in life) covering various sex positions to understand sexual pleasure better.


Ready to give it a go? Here are 5 simple positions, Kgomotso advises couples to try:

 

 69 – This is a great starter for foreplay. The 69 position is one of the best for dual pleasure as both partners can give and receive pleasure simultaneously. Have your partner lie down, flat on their back. Then climb on top, so you're facing away from their upper body. This way, you'll look like the number 69. Your genitals should be lined up with your partner's mouth, and their genitals should be lined up with yours.  


G-Whiz - This one is awesome because when a woman raises her legs, it narrows the vagina and helps target the most sensitive area, the G- Spot. So, she lies back with her legs resting on your partner's shoulders.

Spooning: The best way to bond in a spoon-looking position. This sex position allows for more skin-to-skin contact, increasing your stimulation. Both of you lie on your sides, facing the same direction. You bring your knees up slightly while your partner slides up behind your pelvis and enters you from behind.

 

The Spider: Allows the man to maintain eye contact while viewing the action at centre stage. You sit on the bed with legs toward one another, arms back to support yourselves. Now move together and onto their penis. Her hips will be between their spread legs, her knees bent, and feet outside of their hips and flat on the bed. Now rock back and forth.

Helicopter: The helicopter sex position involves positioning your bodies in a kind of backward leapfrog. It allows for a unique angle of entry and stimulates the sensitive head of the penis. The woman lies on the bed, and the male inserts his penis inside her, so they lie stomach to stomach on the bed. The male then proceeds to rotate his penis inside her in a clockwise direction, imitating a helicopter blade.

It might not be easy to introduce the topic of mundane sex to a partner, but Kgomotso says introducing things like sex games may ease the situation without offending or hurting your partner's feelings. 

"At Spicey Luscious, we have card and dice games highlighting different positions couples can try out. The card game shows the different types of positions with a clear image and description of what each partner should be doing. It also incorporates bondage items, and the dice game has a set of dice. One shows an illustration of a position, and the other provides a location, such as a car, lounge, shower etc."
