This is sort of a silly title – because after all – non-Christians or anyone else could use these(and do).
No – the Bible does not place any limits on sexual positions, so your imagination is the limit.
But unlike some other Christian sites, I don’t have a problem showing sexual images to teach and convey techniques. Why try and dance around all this language when you can just show a picture? It is like looking at directions to build your shed. Except this shed is a lot more fun to build with your spouse!
Listed below are the main positions with some variants(all images are in common domain made by http://en.wikipedia.or/wiki/User:Seedfeeder?rdfrom=commons:User:Seedfeeder):
Classic Missionary Position – this is the position a lot of couples get stuck with and they rarely if ever vary from(I am in one of those marriages). It is a very intimate position and allows the man to take his naturally dominate role during intercourse. However as great as this position is, if it the only position you ever do, it can cause your love life to become stagnant.
Missionary variant position: I like this position as variant.
Man from Behind better known as “Doggy Style” position. Some Christians have a problem with this because they see it as less intimate and more resembling the way animals tend to have sex(humans are the mammal that have intercourse face to face). The problem is there is nothing Biblically wrong and it gives a completely different sensation to sex in this position. It is also a FACT that this position is the best position to conceive a child in as it allows for the perfect positioning of the man’s semen. This is a great position and should be a favorite for any Christian couple. Sexual Intercourse is intimate no matter what position you use – period!
Spoon Position – this is a variant on Doggy style with the man penetrating the women from behind, but instead of standing he is laying behind her.
Woman on Top – otherwise known as the cow girl position – this is one that many Christian women may feel is un-lady-like because it puts the woman in a dominate position during sex. Nothing could be further from the truth. It allows your husband a full view of the beautiful woman God has given him and next to Missionary position is one of the most intimate love making positions(basically just missionary position reversed). It also allows for a very different sensation during sexual intercourse and allows you as the woman to control how your husband is penetrating you, the speed and the angle. I mentioned earlier that the doggy position is great for getting pregnant – well the woman on top position is great for when a woman is VERY pregnant for obvious reasons that her belly will be larger and the man does not put any weight on her belly in this position.
Another variation below on the woman on top position, only the man is sitting up, but she is still on top.
One more variation below of the woman on top position and very intimate.
Then comes what has been an impossible position for me to ever do – the standing up sex position. Unless you are very strong dude and your wife is tiny, or you are both gymnasts most people won’t be able to do this position. It requires the man to not only carry is wife’s entire weight, but also be able to move her up and down, she may be able to help a bit but the majority of this rests on his strength and agility.
Sex does not always have to end in intercourse. There is nothing wrong or unbiblical with a man finishing with his penis between his wife’s breasts.
So that is it. Obviously there some more variations of these positions but you get the general idea. And I wills say what I say many times on this blog. Ladies for the most part – you hold the key to making this happen. In any relationship the person who wants something the least has the most power. In most relationships men want sex the most and women want it the least. That means you ladies have to let this happen, you have to encourage your man and let him know its safe for him to try these different positions. You won’t regret it!
For oral sex positions see this article I wrote – What is Oral Sex?.
Remember Sex is the glue that holds a marriage together. You can have love, you can have commitment, but if you don’t have regular, great sex, you are not fulfilling the true potential of your marriage. Really without sex, your husband and you are at best good friends – nothing more.
Think of it another way – you can talk to your friends on the phone. You can talk to your friends on Facebook. You can even go on vacations with your friends. You can tell your friends your most intimate and dark secrets. You can cry on your friends shoulders. You can go to the hospital to support your friend when they are sick. You get the point…..
But there is only man in this world ladies that you can make love too – and please with the body God gave you for him – and that is your husband.
Now go and build that shed!
