4 Sex Positions That Don't Need a Bed
on 23 Dec 2020
Sure, beds are comfortable, but we've got to leave our comfort zone every once in a while.
We've been having sex since the dawn of mankind, so it's clear that the modern bed isn't a prerequisite for filthy fun.
Check out our suggestions for the best sex positions that don't need a bed.
1. Take it to the floor
Give your bedsprings a break and get your asses on the floor. Your duvet or a couple of pillows are all you need to build yourselves a comfortable foundation.
One of the benefits of having sex on the floor is that it's whole lot quieter than having sex in a bed. There's no headboard banging against the wall, no squeaky springs or bed slats falling out of place.
Cut out all the ruckus and try doing doggy-style on the floor (with padding for your knees of course!) or have the penetrative partner sit against the wall with their legs outstretched whilst the other partner slowly lowers themselves down onto the awaiting penis or sex toy.
2. Hit the shower
The shower is a perfect alternative to having conventional bedroom sex, as it allows you both to experience a variety of new and pleasurable sensations. Pressing one partner into the shower wall as you do the deed can be incredibly hot, but if there is a significant height difference between you and your lover, this can be tricky to accomplish or worse, downright dangerous.
Remember, penetrative sex is not the be all and end all. Indulging in some mutual masturbation while the warm water cascades over you? Yes please!
Shower play also gives you're the opportunity to put some of your waterproof toys to the test. Submersible toys, like the GLUVR Rechargeable 6 Function Finger Vibrator, mean you can take bathroom sex to the next level.
3. Stand and deliver
Hey, if you've got a wall, you've got a sex position. There are so many variations of standing sex positions that it's enough to make your head spin.
One partner can stand whilst the other kneels and performs oral sex; one partner can push their back against the wall for support and wrap their legs around their lover; or both partners can stand and engage in either penetrative or non-penetrative sex.
4. Repurpose your desk
You don't even need a desk for this one, any flat surface will do. The benefit of getting down and dirty on a table or desk is it can serve to make oral sex, penetrative sex and even standing sex easier.
When you're giving your partner oral sex on a bed, you can often end up hunched over to get down to their level. When you lay on a desk, your partner can simply stand over you while you let your tongue go to town.
Using a more rigid, flat surface like a countertop can make standing sex more enjoyable for the upright partner, who won't have to support their lover's weight or worry about pressing their partner too tightly up against a wall.
How many of these bed-less sex positions have you tried? You're only limited by your imagination and your housemate's work rota, so shake up your sex routine and put the bed sex to rest.
