Discover 11 Springtime Intimacy Positions To Refresh Your Romantic Life
With the arrival of spring, those who have been spending their winter indoors can once again enjoy the sun! This season can also lead to positive changes in mood and increased libido due to improved weather conditions. So, take the opportunity to uncover and re-embrace that sexy part of you again!
"A resident sexologist for the erotic ethical porn site FrolicMe, Suzannah Weiss, states that when it's sunny, people often become more inclined to leave their homes, interact with others, and don fewer clothes. The longer days make us want to stay out later, which may lead to more passionate encounters."
Experience the Vitamin D benefits of being outdoors with activities that embody a sexy feeling without being overly sexual. (After all, exhibiting public displays of affection is still not legal!) Weiss expresses it well: “Perhaps it's the sensation of the grass beneath your feet, or the sand on your legs, or the rush of having your skirt flutter in the wind when you forego your underwear.”
Once your heart is warmed by the sun, consider taking your partner on an outdoor escapade. Pitch a camping expedition or try your hand at temperature play. Then, to combat the inevitable sweat, use ice cubes or cold water to cool off. Certified sexologist Rebecca Alvarez Story, founder of Bloomi, recommends alternating between ice and your tongue to create warmth.
Searching for ideas to add some spark to your springtime routine? We've identified 11 of our favorite positions to help keep things fresh.
The Wet Dog
For a cooling sensation, Weiss recommends trying doggy style in the shower after a hot day. Have the receiving partner stand up in the shower and lean against the wall with slightly bent knees, while the penetrating partner enters them from behind. The penetrating partner might also reach around to stimulate the partner's clitoris or nipples. For greater staying power in the water, use silicone lube — contrary to popular belief, water does not provide more lubrication.

The Watch Dog
For a bit of extra spice, try standing doggy against a window. "You can enjoy the view outside while utilizing the windowsill to hold you up as you enjoy the kinkier side of sex," explains Weiss. "Plus, both partners get a nice show!" If you want even more sensation, adding a vibrating penis ring adds the right touch. (This isn't just an idea for those on the ground floor!)

The Black Bee
Weiss suggests taking advantage of the well-known Kama Sutra pose. "The partner penetrating should recline at a 45-degree angle, with the support of a pillow or headboard," Weiss elucidates. "The receiving partner should then be straddling them, with their feet in front of them, and moving their hips in a circular pattern." It's a physically demanding pose, so those in the top position should be motivated by a vibrator on their partner's behalf.

The Tame Your Lion
Experience a new variant of cat-cow yoga with a partner, wrapping a scarf, tie, pillowcase, or other cloth around the waist of one person, "taming the lion" and controlling the rhythm, as suggested by sexologist Jess O'Reilly, PhD of Astroglide. Purring/roaring is optional.
The Ice Cream Sundae
Sit atop your partner, allowing them to access your neck for intimate exploration. Certified sex therapist and sexpert for Lelo, Casey Tanner, suggests "Their hands are free to roam your hips, chest, clitoris, and other erogenous zones, even while enjoying penetrative sex in this position." Spice things up with toys - use a vibrating strap-on for clitoral stimulation, or a vibrating cock ring for penis pleasure.

The Spring Surprise
"For a thrill, step outside your home at night. O'Reilly mentions balancing privacy and risk by ensuring 'low lights and volume,' which reduces the likelihood of detection. To further minimize visibility, recline on a towel or mat. This face-to-face position allows for both eye contact and the ability to retreat if any danger arises. (Pro tip: Always stay in the safety of your own property.)"
The Pool(ish) Sex
If pool sex appeals to you but the potential for bacteria intrigue is not an option, simply position yourselves next to the pool. One partner can sit on the edge with their legs dipped in the water, while the other is conveniently situated in the pool for all types of oral activities.
The Hedge Clippers
For maximum penetration and stimulation, lie on your back resting your hips on the edge of the bed and extend your legs upwards. Your partner stands at the edge of the bed, using pillows if needed to reach the desired height. They may then grasp your ankles to open and close your legs during thrusting or use more of a freestyle rhythm. Additionally, use your hand or a sex toy on your clitoris.

The Easy Up
Partner in a seated, cross-legged position with hands supporting their back provides an ideal platform to straddle and hold onto their shoulders while riding. This position gives you all the benefits of the traditional "on top" position (maneuverability, seductive allure) but more support is available. This can be done with a strap-on, penis, or even a flexible dual-ended vibrator.

The Sexed-Up Bridge
The bridge position in yoga can become far more stimulating with the addition of sex. Start by lying on your back with bent knees and feet on the mattress. Then, raise your hips while keeping your shoulders on the bed. From this point, your partner can kneel for penetration, just remember to take it slowly to prevent injury, or your partner can hold your legs over their shoulders and get to stimulating your clitoris.
The Sex on the Beach
No beach nearby? Create your own with an inflatable pool. Whatever you squirt or spill, you can easily clean up afterwards. For a truly pleasurable experience, grab a waterproof vibrator to share with your partner.
