But let's be real, even the most major of football doesn't last all night, and chances are both of you will be in the mood for releasing some of that tension once game time's done.
Sex and sports aren't all that different — they both involve exhilaration, getting sweaty, maybe getting a little rough.
Even for those of us who know nothing about football, we can't help but feel like this is a sport made for sexual associations. Touchdown! Score! Are we still even talking about sports anymore? *wink*
There are tons of football terms that are just *begging* for experimentation — field goal, anyone?
(And we have no doubt that tailback is truly referring to doggy-style fun.)
Don't get us started on the names of the teams. Consider embracing a Carolina Panthers tribute sex position—make like a big, sexy cat and take turns going down on each other without using your paws. We're into it, and we're also into these other 7 football-inspired sex ideas!
1. The Snap
Astroglide's Resident Sexologist, Dr. Jess recommends that you both start off in a standing position. One partner bends over as though to snap the ball while the other slides his penis in from behind.
2. The Tight End
This is a fun twist on the rear-entry doggy style position, says Dr. Jess. One partner gets down on her hands and knees and the other slides his penis in from behind. The first partner crosses her ankles and squeezes her thighs and buttocks together to tighten the grip.
3. The Field Goal
The female partner lies on her back with her legs up in the air, bent at the knees like goal posts. (She can grab her ankles to keep the legs in place.) The other kneels in front and slides the penis inside of her or dives down for some oral sex action.
4. The Champion
One partner hops on top and rides away while pouring champagne (or beer or a sports drink) down the front of their body. If you'd rather skip the sticky Gatorade bath, Dr. Jess says to take your celebration to delicious new heights by substituting the sugary beverage with a yummy flavored lube like Astroglide Strawberry Liquid.
5. The Touchdown
He is down on his knees giving you oral sex, while you are standing at the door of the bedroom with your arms on the door frame. "If he does a good job, come into the bedroom with him!" says Dr. Jane Greer, New York-based marriage and sex therapist and author of What About Me? Stop Selfishness From Ruining Your Relationship.
6. The Ball Catcher
Let him relax in his favorite chair, getting a blow job while watching the game, says Greer.
7. The Halftime Show
While the band and cheerleaders are performing on the screen, you can perform for your man with a sexy striptease or lap dance, says Greer. Then, show how excited you are about the big game by climbing onto his lap and riding him with the energy and enthusiasm of a cheerleader.
