Good sex is often simple sex — which is why we’re big fans of the missionary position. There is nothing wrong with admitting that this old classic is a favourite sex position between you and your partner. The intimacy of having him on top and her underneath makes face-to-face contact a big factor, enabling constant eye contact throughout.
But we also love this sex positon for its versatility! If you are looking for ways to spice up your sex life with new twists on missionary, read on for some handy suggestions:
1. The power of the kiss
The power of kissing is so underrated in heightening sexual pleasure — and missionary puts you in the perfect position to explore some serious mouth-on-mouth action. Make the most of the closeness by engaging in long passionate kisses. As the tempo increases and thrusts gain momentum, match this in your kisses, allowing your embrace to become deeper and more passionate. As well as the lips, take time to gently kiss the ears, behind the ears and side of the neck. All these pleasure points are bound to drive your partner crazy.
2. Introduce some lube
One easy way to enhance the missionary experience is to experiment with personal lubricants and massage lubricants. Lube comes in all different types, and is not just used for couples with a necessity for it. Certain lubes are used for performance and can add to the sensations felt during sex, or even extend the duration of lovemaking. Durex 2-in-1 massage lubricants are a great way to get started, and after a little while, you can turn that rub down into something extra pleasurable.
3. Cover your eyes
Since missionary is a great sex position for being face to face, why not add to the sexual arousal and tension by wearing a blindfold? As one of your primary senses is being restricted, your other senses heighten to compensate, creating an intriguing and exciting experience. Shy people may especially benefit from being blindfolded or blindfolding their partner, as this may help them feel more comfortable and enable them to be more adventurous. Just remember to put on your condom before blindfolding!
4. Slip on a cock ring
Thinking about introducing some sex toys into your sex life to spice up your favourite missionary position? A cock ring is a great place to start. We suggest the Durex Intense Pleasure Ring, which is designed to help your erection last longer, leading to extra pleasure for both partners. It's made from super stretchy silicone material that feels soft and comfortable on your penis, and it's safe to use with condoms. Plus, it’s reusable up to six times. Just make sure you give it a good clean in between uses — and don't wear this cock ring for longer than 30 minutes at a time in order to prevent poor circulation.
5. Introduce a vibrator
If you are not keen on the idea of a cock ring, then there are other sex toys you can try adding into the missionary sex position. A vibrator can provide amazing clitoral stimulation during sex, giving her complete control of driving the motions and finding the perfect position. On the flip side, she can also hand over control to her partner, and have them surprise her with their moves!
