Sex can become boring over time

It’s true that over time, it’s easy to fall into a sex routine with your partner. Work gets in the way, life becomes stressful, and you have less time for intimacy. You start to place it further and further down your priority list. Before you know it, you rarely have sex at all.

While sex isn’t the be-all and end-all of a relationship, if your relationship lacks intimacy, you could grow apart. One partner may wonder why the other isn’t interested in sex anymore, and as a result, their eyes could start to wander. Of course, that’s not always a given, but it is a possibility. 

Aside from that, the romance starts to slide. We’re not talking about hearts, chocolates, and flowers here, we’re talking about the connection you have with your partner. 

But you can start using romantic sex positions to help you bring back the intimacy, the romance, and the connection in your relationship. Once you start, you might find that you don’t want to stop! [Read: The lack of sex in a relationship – Why it happens & what it means]

Why a healthy sex life is important

Sex is important to some people, but not to others. So, everyone is different. But how important sex is to your relationship ultimately depends on your own beliefs, physical desires, and the nature of your relationship.

Sure, some people can have happy and fulfilling relationships without sex – or at least with infrequent sex. But for most couples, it is a very important way to connect with each other, both physically and emotionally.

Here are some of the reasons why sex – and romantic sex positions – are important in a romantic relationship.

1. It helps you bond with your partner

When two people have sex, their brains produce oxytocin, which is a “bonding” chemical. So, not only do you feel closer to your partner on a mental and emotional level, these brain chemicals are literally helping you create and strengthen the emotional connection the two of you have.

2. You can show your love and affection

Outside of the bedroom, there are only so many ways that a couple can show love and affection. They can hold hands, cuddle, hug, and kiss. However, while that’s all great, it’s not as deep and intimate as having sex with one another. Having sex is something much more personal that has to be done behind closed doors where no one else can see you.

3. It helps you feel more secure

When a couple doesn’t have sex – or doesn’t have it very often – it can make one or both of the partners feel insecure about the relationship. They might wonder if their significant other is having an affair, or simply doesn’t find them attractive anymore. So, when you have regular sex, these thoughts aren’t usually present in either person. [Read: Make-out session secrets – 18 sexy tips to make it way better and sizzle]

4. It’s fun and pleasurable

Let’s face it – sex feels good! And that’s a great reason to have it more with your partner, right? Sex can help you release the stress of your life and focus solely on your partner in the moment, and forget about all of your otherworldly problems.

5. Individual benefits

Although having regular sex with your significant other is good for strengthening your partnership, it’s also good for you individually as well. It can improve your self-confidence knowing your partner finds you attractive. It also allows you to connect with your own body in a pleasurable way.

6. Physical benefits

Having sex doesn’t just provide emotional benefits to both people, but it also is good for your body too. For example, it’s considered a light form of exercise – and the best kind, right? Because of this, it can improve your heart health. It can also boost immune and brain function too. This doesn’t mean that people who don’t have regular sex are going to be less healthy. It just means that people who have sex regularly may also see these improvements in their body as well. [Read: The big health benefits of sex and more that will help you live longer]

7. Sex creates an intimacy feedback loop

There is actually a strong connection between frequent sexual activity and overall well-being. Sex involves affection. And that affection, in turn, predicts that there will be even more sexual activity. In other words, more sex leads to more sex. So, if you want to have a regular sex life, then have sex! It can also improve your sex drive, which leads to you and your partner desiring each other more.

1. Missionary position

Don’t yawn! The missionary position is pretty intimate, even though you probably think otherwise. 

Sure, you probably lost your virginity in this position, but stop for a second and think about it. The man’s on top of the female, face-to-face, with eye contact. It’s romantic.

For the female, she’s able to use her hands and explore her partner’s body. We know missionary is known as the boring standard position since the female doesn’t have to do much, but try lifting your legs on his shoulders or bringing your knees to your chest. That exposes the clitoris and gives it direct contact with his penis. [Read: Who’s on top? 8 ways to make missionary magical]

2. Woman on top

While similar to the cowgirl position, there’s less distance between you and your partner. Cowgirl has the man lying down with the woman riding him. But, with woman-on-top, you have the man sitting up, with the woman’s legs wrapped around his torso.

This gives you face-to-face contact and allows you both to passionately kiss, grab, and bite at the same time. This position is best when he’s sitting on a chair, leaning against the bedpost, on a couch, or at the edge of the bed. 

While riding him, the man can play with the woman’s nipples, which are known to release oxytocin, the bonding hormone. [Read: How to ride a man and look really sexy doing it]

3. Spooning

Everybody loves a good ol’ spoonin’ session! Well, this romantic sex position is basically the same position as how you would sleep. 

However, you know, you’re naked and having sex — a slight difference. With the woman’s back facing the man, you’re actually not sharing any eye contact unless you turn your face sideways.

But the feeling of being cradled in a man’s arms intensifies the connection between you two. Also, this is considered one of the best sex positions for the female orgasm—you’re welcome, ladies. [Read: How to have spooning sex and make it hotter than any other position you’ve ever tried]

4. The pretzel

The pretzel isn’t as complicated as it sounds. 

Basically, the male is kneeling and the female is lying on her left side with her right leg wrapped around the right side of his waist. This is great because he gets to watch her face, and she gets to watch his body move. Slow this position down so you both feel the penis go in and out. It’s an amazing position.

5. Woman on her stomach

Okay, you’re probably thinking this position isn’t personal since the woman is facing the pillow. You’re highly mistaken.

For this intimate sex position, the female needs to lie face down on the bed with her legs spread slightly apart. Then, the man has to slowly enter from behind while the female crosses her ankles, creating a tighter squeeze.

If she doesn’t feel anything happening with her clitoris, the female or the male can manually stimulate it. There’s something great about this position because the guy can get down low right beside the woman’s face. We mean, it’s sex.

You’re both sweaty, your faces are touching each other, and you can hear each other’s breathing. Mamma mia! [Read: 30 days sex challenge – 30 sex positions for 30 days]

6. The suspender

Another one of the romantic sex positions is the suspender. If your man has been hitting the gym, then you can certainly test him out with this position. With the male standing with his back up against the wall, the female wraps her legs around his waist and bounces up and down.

Now, the guy needs to use his arms to hold onto her legs for support, or else she’s going flying or just hitting the floor. It’s a little different than the traditional bed, and you’re also in a face-to-face position. [Read: Sexual wish list – 16 naughty deeds to help build your list]

7. Intimate sex positions can be complicated but fun! Try the magic mountain

This isn’t a Disneyland ride. Although it sure looks like one.

The male sits with his legs bent and leaning back on his hands or forearms, and the female does the same. Both in this position, inch closer and closer together until they connect.

When you’re both in the moment, the last thing you want to do is wait. You want it now. But, if you can last, it’s a beautiful moment. You’re staring at each other and the increased sexual tension continues to build. Plus, for the woman, because his pelvis will be grinding against your clitoris, you’ll get extra stimulation.

8. The pinball wizard

If you’re a woman who’s been doing yoga or Pilates, this position will come easily to you. If not, then start stretching. For the pinball wizard, the female has to get into a partial bridge position, with her hips in the air.

The male will be in a kneeling position, holding the hips and entering into the female. For females, this feels great because he can easily stimulate your clitoris and massage it. If you have back problems, though, we recommend you try something else. [Read: From “om” to “o” – Best possible positions for yoga sex]

9. Tub fun

Becoming intimate doesn’t necessarily mean you need to have penetration. Don’t frown. It can still be a lot of fun. If you have a bathtub, then turn that water on and fill it up.

Both get into the tub, relax your feet over the edge of the tub and start touching yourself in front of your partner. Without a doubt, that will excite them and they’ll start touching themselves as well. With you staring at your partner and them staring back at you, we would say that’s pretty intimate.

10. There are intimate sex positions for just you too – Solo belly down

If you’re a woman and you happen to be alone, why not have an intimate moment with yourself? You don’t always have to be with someone to experience intimacy. Plus, a little self-romance equals self-care, and we all know it’s important to get plenty of that!

Lie down on your stomach and with your hands between your legs, slowly grind against them. Rub your legs together. Move your hips up and down as if there was a man on top of you. This will stimulate your clitoris, and trust us, you want it stimulated.

Intimate sex positions can transform your sex life

Adding a little extra sparkle to your relationship can do wonders. 

It could be all it takes to transport you back to those heady days when you first met and everything was so exciting and addictive. 

Try these romantic sex positions and inject a huge amount of fun and romance into your relationship.
