In theory, standing positions are awesome. In practice? Well, they’re not always the most practical (or comfortable, or attainable…). But with a little assistance, you, too, can achieve the standing sex of your dreams.
Now, it doesn’t have to be a step ladder (any elevated surface at a good height works just fine), but we do want to point out that fucking against a ladder is super badass. In case you weren’t aware.
Position Type: Intercourse
What It’s Good For: A session of unassisted standing sex requires strength, balance, and two perfectly aligned bodies—something many of us having a hard time achieving. But if one partner happens to be supporting some of their weight on an elevated surface (one that brings their pudenda in line with their partner’s, of course), then it’s suddenly much easier to focus on the fucking…rather than all the other positioning nonsense. And if you’re wondering what standing sex is good for, well: it offers a different angle of stimulation while allowing for the eye contact and closeness of missionary. And, come on: doing it while standing just feels naughtier.
Follow It Up With: Why not make the most of that little bit of assistance while you’ve got it? There are all sorts of standing positions that can be improved (or made possible) with a little help from an inanimate object. We suggest trying them all, one after the other.
