If you have a favorite sex position— or one you’ve been wanting to try— New Year’s Eve is the time to do it. It’s an amazing mix of a totally hedonistic night where anything goes, but also looking forward to the year to come. It should be a fun night, where you party with everyone you know and have a huge celebration. And sometimes it is. But all this pressure to make it the best. night. ever. often means that New Year’s Eve ends up distinctly underwhelming. It can be a lot of stress and planning that doesn’t live up to expectation.
So if you’re feeling like your New Year’s Eve plans are starting to fail you, maybe you should consider staying in and celebrating. And by staying in and celebrating, I obviously mean a sex marathon. I can’t think of a better way to ring in the new year, not to mention shaking off all the weird sh*t that’s happened in 2018. If you really want to let go and escape reality for a bit, grab your partner and a bottle of champagne and bring the new year in with a bang. Literally.
So here are the best positions for New Year’s Eve, because you should start 2019 off with the right attitude:
How To Do It: While your partner lays down, straddle them and lower yourself onto them. Then go with whatever makes you feel sexiest— lean forward, lean back, grind, bounce— the choice is totally yours.
Why It’s Great For New Year’s: Because 2019 is going to be your year— and you should ride into it like the goddess you are.
2. The Plow
How To Do It: Start in missionary, then raise your legs up so they’re resting on your partner’s shoulders. If you can hook your knees on top of their shoulders, great, but if not, don’t worry— just go as far as feels comfortable.
Why It’s Great For New Year’s: It’s incredibly intense— we’re talking really deep penetration— but you’re still connected with your partner. You get to bring the New Year in with a real bang.
How To Do It: One of you lays on your back with the other on top, or you can both lay on your sides. The important part is that your facing each other’s feet, so you canperform oral on each other simultaneously.
Why It’s Great For New Year’s: Because New Year’s Eve is all about coming full circle, about watching one year come and another year go, so you may as well embrace the theme. Oh— and it feels great.
4. In A Chair
How To Do It: Have them sit in a chair or on a couch, then straddle them and lower yourself down. Make the most of the eye contact and closeness, but if you feel like switching it up you can always try facing away from your partner, too.
Why It’s Great For New Year’s: Because New Year’s is a carefree time, so if you’ve got some privacy then you should be able to have sex right in your damn living room. Start the year off with an adventure, plus some amazing intimacy and clit play.
How To Do It: The wall is really helpful in this position, so use it to brace yourself. Stand with your legs slightly separated and slowly lift one leg up while your partner enters you from behind. Move slowly while you get your balance right, you can always pick up the momentum later.
Why It’s Great For New Year’s: It’s another bold position to welcome in 2018, if you’re feeling ready to take it head on. Just be careful with this one if you’ve been dabbling in the champagne — the wall is your friend, make sure you use it to balance.
6. Reverse Cowgirl
How To Do It: Straddle your partner but facing away from them, toward their feet. Then you can lean forward or back to find a position that’s comfortable for both of you. Use your hands to feel yourself while your partner enjoys the view.
Why It’s Great For New Year’s: It’s the most badass position available for most women out there. It’s all about taking care of you and feeling like a rock star, so you’ll be starting the 2018 off with the right attitude.
7. X Marks The Spot
How To Do It: Lay on the edge of your bed (or table or couch, wherever works) while he stands directly over you. Rest your legs on his chest, crossing them either at the ankle or knee. Find a comfortable position for them to enter you, then you can experiment by crossing your legs tighter or less tight to mix it up.
Why It’s Great For New Year’s: If you’re ready to just lie back and enjoy— and let the new year wash over you— this is a great position. A tight fit, a great view, and you can get some clit play involved. You’re ready to take on the world.
Basically, New Year’s Eve should be the night where anything goes. Anything that makes you feel confident, sexy, and ready to take on the new year is fair game. Just make sure you’re starting the new year off right.
