9 Best Sex Positions for Men With Smaller Penises +3 Positions You Should Never Do
The 9 Best Times to Have Sex
Timing is important for, say, landing a dream job or catching a sale. But here's some intimate info: It's also crucial when it comes to sex! You've probably heard that the ideal time of the month to get pregnant is when you're ovulating (usually in the middle of your menstrual cycle, between day 11 and 21, depending on the person), but you may not realize that certain times of the day, month and year are best for other sexual goals. For a more satisfying sex life, here's when to get busy if you…
This may sound counterintuitive, but the day you're most likely to experience a mind-bending orgasm is actually the day before you get your period, according to Laurie Watson, a sex therapist and couples counselor in Raleigh, NC, and author ofWanting Sex Again. "When blood accumulation makes your uterus heavy, contractions are more perceptible during orgasm, and your labial and clitoral tissue tends to be more sensitive when you retain fluids," says Watson. "Convince yourself to give sex a shot, even if you're feeling grouchy and uncomfortable, because it may cheer you right up," she suggests.
The top time is between Christmas and New Year's Day, when you and your husband are likely out of the office. "When you have no work pressures and are spending many hours with your mate, it's easier to have luxurious, unhurried sex that lasts and lasts," says Terence Watts, a psychotherapist based in the U.K. who specializes in psychosexual problems. "A slow build-up is key. Flirt with your husband in the morning by whispering in his ear, and then make lots of eye contact with him during meals."
As you've likely noticed, men often wake up with erections, says Amy Levine, a sexologist based in New York City and the founder of IgniteYourPleasure.com. So instead of making him wait all day, set your alarm for 10 minutes earlier on a work day and have a quickie first thing in the morning. You might enjoy it more, too. "As women age, they tend to get more tired at night, so evening sex is less desirable," says Watson. In other words, you have more energy for a crack-of-dawn romp than a late-night one.
If you can get past the ick factor, making love while you're on your period can actually reduce uncomfortable cramps, says Levine. "It may be because an orgasm causes uterine contractions, which ease pain, and your body releases the hormone oxytocin and the neurotransmitter dopamine, which make you feel happy and relaxed." If you can expect sex when Aunt Flo shows, you just may look forward to your time of month!
Plan an unforgettable evening during a steamy time of year, like July or August in most parts of the country, because you'll have more opportunities to get it on discreetly outside, like in your yard or on your roof, says Levine. Being outdoors means you've already left your comfort zone, so you may be more likely to think outside the box. "Plus, sunshine boosts serotonin in the brain, which improves your mood, so you may enjoy yourself more," says Tammy Nelson, PhD, a sex and relationship expert in New Haven, CT, and author ofGetting the Sex You Want.
Schedule a weekend date night when you don't have a work commitment and are less exhausted. You don't even have to leave the house! Put on some mellow music, order in and take a breather together from the hectic week to enjoy each other's company. Consider asking a friend or relative to take the kids out—the more romantic and relaxed the environment, the more you set the stage for amazing sex. "Focus on quality over quantity," recommends Watts.
The longer you've been with your partner, the harder it is to be creative in the bedroom. And missionary style every Saturday night can get a little boring. To mix things up, set an alarm for 3 A.M. and straddle your spouse in the middle of the night, recommends Levine. We're pretty sure he won't mind being woken up.
Summertime means party time—especially with weddings. These six-hour affairs are romantic and fun, but also draining. "By the time a wedding's over, couples come home feeling too full, too drunk or too tired, and those factors can sabotage sex," says Watson. If your calendar's chock full of nuptials, it may be tough to get action. Why wait until midnight? Fool aroundbeforeyou leave for the event, and you'll be glowing on the dance floor all night.
