Yes, we know Valentine’s Day can be a little on the cheesy side…

And okay, it has definitely turned into a day that celebrates commercialism and rampant chocolate buying, but there is still a lot to be said for a day that incentivises us to have more sex.

That’s the way we’re looking at it anyway.

So this February 14th, celebrate your relationship stage with these 6 marvellous sex positions.

1. If you want to add intimacy and romance

THE LOTUS

Yep, like it’s yoga namesake, this position requires the man to sit in a lotus, or crossed leg position. The woman then sits on his lap and wraps her arms and legs around him, fully entwining her body with his.

This position ensures you are face to face, allowing for some delicious and passionate kissing, and requires slow, sensuous movements, which adds a bucket-load of romantic intensity. Sjoe – we feel hot under the collar just thinking about it!

2. If you want to add some kink to a generally vanilla relationship

THE KNEE-OVER

So, you want to spice up your vanilla sex life with a wee bit of kink this Valentine’s Day? We have the perfect position for you: something that will challenge you, but not make you or your partner want to run for the hills, screaming in fear.

This is the Knee-Over a position that sees the female bending over her partner’s knee. It allows your partner to get full access for manual stimulation and is great for a soft (or hard spanking). It’s slightly vulnerable, but that’s what adds to its appeal!

3. If you both love food

THE CHOCOLATE BJ

It’s not the freshest idea around, but pairing food and oral sex goes down really well – for both parties. Dribble chocolate, whipped cream (hell, even M&Ms) onto your man’s penis and enjoy licking and nibbling off the decadent sweetness. This could keep you occupied for hours – well, depending on how long your man can last!

4. If you’re in a long-distance relationship

REMOTE-CONTROLLED PLEASURE

Your partner is on the other side of the world, and all you want to do is share some sexy time with them. With remote-controlled toys, you can. Get something like the We-Vibe Sync, which allows your partner to control the toy from wherever he or she is. Simply download the Smartphone app and let the play time begin!

5. If you’re single

THE SHOWER HEAD

You’d be surprised at how delicious pumping water feels against your clitoris. Plus, why should couples have all the fun this Valentine’s Day? Lean against the shower wall and place your removable shower head between your legs.

Turn up the water (making sure it’s not too hot or too cold) and fire away. If you don’t have a removable shower head try a similar position in the bath. Fill the tub slightly, then slide down with your legs up, so you are positioned underneath the tap. Turn the water on, and let the water pour directly onto your clit.

6. If you’ve been dating forever

THE SLOW ONE

If you’ve been dating each other for a while, you probably know each other’s bodies inside out. Which has its benefits – as you know exactly what is required to make your Significant Other orgasm, but can also mean that you indulge in quickies more often than you should. We’re suggesting that you make time to have sex that lasts for over an hour.

Draw a bubble bath, pour some wine, light a few candles, put on some romantic music and start the marathon. Slide up and down each other, take your time in rubbing each other – make her come and then relax as she returns the favour. Get out, towel each other dry and then cuddle in bed. Ah. Loveliness personified!
