Position of the week: Missionary

The average guy lasts around 2-3 minutes during intercourse before ejaculating. This position may help him to last longer.


This is the missionary position but with both of you keeping legs straight rather than him nestling in between hers.


Straight legs means neither can thrust in the traditional way. Instead, he should make small circles with his hips and grind against her pelvis. It's pleasurable but less intense and stimulating.


He should stop and hold perfectly still or withdraw completely if he feels he's losing control.

Make it even better…

A vibrating cock ring will add thrilling sensations for both of you. Made from soft silicone, and ergonomically shaped to fit between you, the Mantric Love Ring has a textured side for extra clitoral stimulation.


This position can be adapted for female-female couples with the use of a strap-on dildo. It's also a great position to try for anal sex (and add a male masturbator into the mix if the receiver has a penis).
