Sex

Start stretching now.

When it comes to your sex life, I am all in favor of trying new sex positions.

It can be easy to stick with your routine (sexually speaking), especially when you've found a way of having sex that works well for you and always ends in orgasms. 

Why mess that up?

I get that line of thinking, but to the question posers I would respond with: Sure, you could mess it up, or you could find a sex position that is even BETTER than your old standby. 

Not every sex position is the perfect match for every person. Some folks love to 69, others (smart, intelligent, non-hippies like myself) hate to 69. 

The bridge is another one of those controversial sex positions. People love it or hate it. But other folks don't even know what it is! 

In the interest of educating us all, I decided to answer 5 important questions about the bridge sex position.

1. What is the bridge sex position? 

The bridge sex position is all sex and all exercise. 

If you do it for longer than one minute, prepare to feel sweaty, drained, exhausted, shaky, and sore.

And I'm not talking the next day, I'm talking minutes later. 

Here's how it works. The woman gets on all fours: easy enough, right?

NOPE. Your ass is getting on all fours so that your back is facing the bed (or floor). That's right, you're essentially in a crab pose. You will continue to support your weight this way during all of the sex you have in the bridge sex position. 

The man is on his knees between your legs, holding your hips to guide himself and for support. 

Then the thrusting begins and you both burn off roughly 80 pounds of chocolate chip cookies. 

 

2. Why does it feel so good for him?

The bridge sex position feels good for him for a bunch of reasons: namely, it is a sex position, and he is having sex with you, and that makes him happy.

Secondly, in this position your body is tensed — even your vagina — and that can create a nice firm grip on his penis, which he likes. 

Dudes also like this position because they are in total control. It's a position of dominance and they get the set the pace of the sex and control how deeply they go inside of you. 

In this position, your vagina becomes his playground. 

 

3. Why does it feel so good for her?

It doesn't, always. 

If you're an athlete and you like a challenge, then maybe that works for you. 

If you're a woman who can have an orgasm from G-spot stimulation, the bridge sex position could work for you.

That said, if you are one of the majority of women who can only have an orgasm with clitoral stimulation, chances are you won't be able to achieve climax in this position. You can't even give yourself a hand because you are using both of said hands TO SUPPORT THE ENTIRE WEIGHT OF YOUR BODY. 

 

4. Do I have to be a goddamn Olympian to try it?

Pretty much. 

If you have weak wrists or you're not in shape and you want to give it a go, may I suggest wrist supports? 

There is a hack you can try if you want to feel it out but don't feel like channeling your inner Jillian Michaels.

Put an exercise ball under your back for buoyancy and support. But please proceed with caution. I am having nightmares imagining readers going flying off their sex balls because I tried to help them spice up their sex lives.

5. On a scale of Real Sex To Full On Porn where does this sex position fall? 

I'm gonna go ahead and give it an 8.5, meaning, it's way more of a porn sex position than a real life sex position.

That said, I think it's something amateurs could play around with, though I don't think it's ideal for female orgasm. 

If you don't get your cardio in regularly, this could, in theory, count as time spent at the gym. I don't know if I should give it more points for that or take away points. 

You be the judge.
