sex positions for long-term couples

Intimate sex positions should be on the roster for every long-term couple. Sure, you probably want to reignite the spark and try new kinky things, but keeping it close and intimate is good for your relationship.

It helps you feel close to your partner. When we’re living on too much caffeine and packed schedules, it can be easy to fall into a lazy sex routine to get it done quickly.



Don’t miss out on some of these incredibly intimate sex positions for long-term couples that you should do regularly.

1. Crossed Spoon

The classic spooning position is great and everything, but it can be pretty lazy. Lazy does not always translate to sexy. Instead, try the Crossed Spoon. Lie on your back with your legs draped over your partner’s side. Spread your legs bent at the knee.

This position is just as easy as a regular spoon, but there is more room for clitoral stimulation. Your partner has the ability to stimulate your nipples and grab your legs seductively.

2. Missionary

Missionary always gets a bad rep, but it’s actually one the most important positions for intimacy. You get ample face-time which allows for making out and eye contact, key things for feelings of closeness with your partner. There is nothing quite as sexy as feeling the full weight of a person you love on top of you.

If you want to make your missionary super-orgasmic, stick two pillows under your rear for an added lift. You’ll be able to grind your clitoris against your partner’s pelvis (i.e., more orgasms).

3. Sit to Stand

For something both a little kinky and intimate, practice a sit-to-stand position. Lie back on the bed with your butt at the edge. Have your partner stand next to the bed.

He or she will have full access to move your legs around and that control can be a huge turn-on. You get the full view of your partner’s body from a very sexy angle.

4. Oral Sex

We often mistake oral sex for an optional part of the sexual experience. We think we can just do it on special occasions and skip to the main event the rest of the time.

This is not good for your relationship. You should be both giving and receiving oral sex on a regular basis. This is a fantastic way to make sure things don’t get stale in a relationship. Oral sex shows your partner how much you care about him or her and vice versa.

Do never ever stop having oral sex. Make it a part of your regular sexual routine. It might take a few extra minutes, but it is always worth it.

5. Lotus

Lotus is famous for its tantric qualities. You are literally as close to your partner as you can get. You sit on your partner’s lap, face-to-face. You can start a slow, romantic pace ride with making out and sensuality. It’s one of the best sex positions for long-term couples because of its closeness. Plus, it’s super-hot.

6. Soulmate Missionary

To kick up missionary a notch, straighten your legs during missionary to get your partner even close to you. This is great for orgasm because his or her motion become a grinding motion over a classic in-and-out thrusting.

You’ll feel his or her total weight on you and the opportunities for kissing are endless. This is easy for couples who want to keep it hot, but lack the time and energy to get too wild.

7. Cowgirl Mermaid

Cowgirl is great occasionally, but for many women, it’s truly an exhausting position. To make it easier for yourself, pull your leg behind you in a Cobra position. You can slide back and forth instead of bouncing up and down (because let’s be real, Cowgirl is a major cardio endeavor). Plus, you look super-sexy in this position and that added confidence boost is sometimes all you need to get to orgasmic heights.

8. Flat Doggy

Doggy Style is a fan favorite, but Flat Doggy is definitely superior. Instead of being on all fours, lie totally flat. This gives a tighter feel for your partner and allows for deeper G-spot stimulation for you. Since your partner is lying on top of you, the skin-to-skin action feels very intimate and sexy.

9. Open Box

Lie on your back with your knees up, like you’re about to receive oral sex. Have your partner kneel beneath you and enter you in a faux missionary. This position makes it easy to bring in a vibrator for extra clitoral stimulation.

What makes this a must-have for long-term couples is the deep penetration it allows. This position is all about the two of you, really experiencing each other’s bodies. For any couple looking to take their orgasmic potential to new heights, this position is a must.
