If your sex life is starting to feel a little too choreographed or paint-by-numbers, you’ve got two choices. One, you can add some new positions to your sexual repertoire.

 

Your other option is to breathe some new life into those old positions. Bored by the same-old-same-old routine of missionary, or her on top, or you from behind? Laura Berman, Ph.D., author of The Passion Prescription, has some suggestions for making small changes to these rusty classics. Try these, and you’ll feel like you reinvented the wheel.

Missionary

Position her legs straight up against your chest instead of on the bed. Then pull her legs gently upward as you move in. You’ll have an easier time stimulating her clitoris and G-spot.

Another Twist
Scoot your body a little closer so that the base of your penis can stimulate her clitoris. And add some rocking to your thrusting.

Woman on Top

Prop yourself up at the head of the bed with pillows so she can hold onto the headboard for greater support. This position may make it easier for her to control the depth and rhythm.
 

Another Twist
Try gripping her legs when she’s in reverse cowgirl. You’ll get the unforgettable view, and she’ll feel sexy and uninhibited.

Man From Behind

Have her crouch on the bed with her torso upright, and position her back against your chest. You can touch her more easily in this position, and her hands will be free to pleasure herself.
 

Another Twist
Place a pillow under her hips and thighs. With this simple tweak, you’ll be better able to change the depth of your penetration.
