When that starts, before long at least one of you is going to get a little bored. It doesn't mean the sex is bad, it just means that you need to start making the effort again.
Maybe it's because you've never tried it or maybe you've tried it and it's gone badly, but there are some positions that can seem a little scary.
Most porn stars will have tried far more positions than us mere mortals, so whatever they settle on as their favorite sex position must be pretty great.
The basics are great, but the problem with only trying out new positions once in a while is that — sorry to burst your bubble — you're probably just not that good at them.
One of the best ways to keep your sex life alive and well is through mixing things up and keeping the spontaneity there.
You have the option to be really intimate and connected, it can be rougher or more playful— there are so many different flavors to it.
When it's done badly — or just too often— you are there on your hands and knees and it can feel like your partner's just thudding away. Not sexy.
For some people, being in control in the bedroom comes naturally, but other people need some help to feel confident.
Any position can be really romantic or straight-up BDSM, it's all about the technique and your connection with your partner.
Whether it's struggles with body positivity or just the general fear of not being good enough, it can have a huge affect on your sex life.
