We all know the basics and the essentials for sexy time. Be it self-pleasuring or teamwork, there’s just always new things to learn and explore. Thanks to technological advancements, the internet (of course!) and adventurous minds, 2016 has seen some very interesting sex trends in the form of new positions, new toys, etc.
Sex Podcasts – Podcasts are basically your friends, you can take them on road trips, listen o them while you do the laundry, you get the point. Sex podcasts are not only highly informative for you and your partner between the sheets, they also can strengthen understanding and communication. There’s various kinds on the net including advice, tips, stories, even audible porn (keep this for the indoors).
Pumping Iron – Having strong pelvic floor muscles is very in right now. Venus balls, geisha balls, whatever you want to call them — they’re great for your orgasm. You lube them up and insert them in the vagina, and use those leg and PC muscles to amp up your kegel workout. Now, why exactly would you do that? Because they can help strength the vagina, which results in improved sexual performance and more intense orgasms. It’s just like lifting weights, but with your..vagina.
Double Digits – So you obviously know the 69 but have you tried the 77? Highly underrated, this sex position guarantees a definite hit at your g-spot. It’s basically like spooning but with a twist. To those who lack imagination, here’s how you do it: lie on your side with your guy behind you so that you’re both facing the same direction. Wrap your legs around his top leg and pull him close, pushing your butt toward him as he enters you. Once he’s inside, straighten your legs in tandem with his so they’re tightly sandwiched together, toes pointed. Stay connected as you simultaneously bend at your waists, while extending your legs at a 45-degree angle away from your bodies.
Long-Distance Lovin’ – Doing distance with the bae? No problem. Lovense recently came up with a new line of smart sex toys that sense and react to your partner’s movements whether he or she lives across the street or across the country. Fun fact: you can get vibrations going in your partner’s toy remotely, or by moving your own device a certain way. What a time to be alive!
Birth Control for Him – 2016 has already been a big year for male contraceptives. Various kinds are in the works, all of which will allow the burden of accessing and using birth control to be shared. (High five to gender equality!) The long-term, non-hormonal concept that is in the works is anticipated to be out as early as 2018. Plus, there are plenty of condom variations available now (and in the making), as well as a vaginal condom with a built-in vibrating ring that sounds like some good old contraceptive fun.
