DO you find yourself doing the same tried-and-tested sex positions and rarely try something new in the bedroom?

If you want to spice things up and add some excitement between the sheets, there are a whole host of exciting moves you can try with your partner. 

Do you want to become a giant pretzel with your partner and have an intense orgasm? The pretzel dip sex position may be for you

Here, Fabulous has rounded up some orgasm-promising positions that will get you out of your rut…

The Pretzel Dip

There is a sex position driving couples wild called the Pretzel Dip – and it is said to give you the deep penetration of doggy while maintaining eye contact.

If you are looking to become the human form of a giant pretzel with your partner, this move could be just what you are looking for.

To enjoy the foodie frolic, women need to lie on their right side, with their male partner kneeling and straddling their right leg.

He picks up and curls the woman’s left leg round his left side, in order to get up close and personal.

Women can lie back as the man does all the hard work in this very passionate position that leaves his hands free to roam your body.

The Eagle

The eagle sex position is when one partner lies on their back with their legs spread apart, or spreadeagle.

It’s said to be similar to missionary but with the person lying down having their legs wide and in the air, rather than straight and flat on the bed.

There are variations to the position, such as lying face down with legs spread, similar to doggy style.

Another variation is for the receiving partner’s legs to be closed, and the penetrating partner’s to be wide apart.

This variation is said to be better for stimulating the G-spot and the prostate gland and is sometimes called the peace sign position.

The Butter Churner

If you’re looking for a way to heat things up in the bedroom then look no further than the Butter Churner.

The ambitious sex-move promises mind-blowing orgasms… but it’s certainly not for the faint-hearted.

Firstly, this position is going to need a bit of acrobatics, so make sure you are feeling fairly flexible before getting hot and heavy.

The woman lies on her back with her legs raised and bent over so her ankles are pulled back towards her head. 

Then, the man squats so he can slowly penetrate her vagina above her – and the thrusting motion is said to be similar to making butter in an old fashioned butter churner.

The Lotus Lover

 Thanks to the boom in yoga, the bendy Lotus Lover is proving to be a hitThanks to the boom in yoga, the bendy Lotus Lover is proving to be a hit

With the rise in popularity in the vegan and yoga lifestyle, a move called the Lotus Lover is proving popular among couples.

Tracey wrote on the Mail: “He sits cross-legged and leans back against a wall, using his hands for support. You then kneel over his lap, gripping him with your thighs for balance and lower until he’s penetrated.

“It’s easy to add clitoral stimulation and the position forces you to rock rather than thrust: a far more effective way to orgasm plus you’re in charge of speed and depth of penetration.”

Sideways 69

 Nowadays people are loving the Sideways 69 as it is easier and more relaxingNowadays people are loving the Sideways 69 as it is easier and more relaxing

According to sexpert Tracey, millennials are more concerned with getting on the property ladder or finding their dream job to focus all their attention on sex.

Young adults are said to be waiting later for sex, and due to the influence of social media, are more body conscious and prefer to put in lower efforts.

This is why the sideways 69 is currently a hot favourite for X-rated fun – and flips the classic position on its side for an easier fun session.

Not only is it more comfy, but it also takes tension of your necks and helps you both to relax into the pleasure.

The 68

Most people know about the sex position “the 69”, but have you heard about the new sensual style in town?

Couples are going wild for the 68, which is a new variant on the pleasurable classic and also puts the woman’s pleasure first.

While the acrobatic 69 involves both partners simultaneously getting pleasure, the 68 focuses on giving one person the time of their life.

It works by one partner lying on their back, with their knees bent and feet flat on the floor, and then the other person lies on top of their chest, positioning themselves so their genitals are resting near the partner underneath’s mouth.

The “giver” is able to have full access to everything they wish to explore, while the “receiver” lies back and enjoys the sensations.

And perfect for women, when you are on top, the guy’s hands are free to roam where he wishes and you can also touch yourself to take things to the next level.

The Unicorn

 The Unicorn sex position could be perfect for those who love the mythical horned beastThe Unicorn sex position could be perfect for those who love the mythical horned beast

If you are looking to add a sensual position into your usual bedroom routine, there is a magical move called The Unicorn which could do the trick – glitter optional.

If you are obsessed with the mythical horned creature, you’ll be glad to know it’s not too hard to pull off.

Both people lie down on their sides as if in a spooning position, with the man’s legs together but slightly apart with the ankles touching.

The woman then raises her top leg and bends it slightly, so he can grasp her ankle and she can hold her knee.

Women can lie back as the man does all the hard work in this very passionate position that leaves his other hand free to caress the woman’s breasts.

The Side Scissor

 Couples are loving the Side Scissor sex move for the Christmas break Couples are loving the Side Scissor sex move

The Side Scissor is the perfect move when you’re feeling a bit lazy, but are absolutely sick of spooning.

To master the Side Scissor, ladies should lie on your backs while your man turns to the side, with one leg underneath you and one on top.

From there, he can thrust and get a great view of his partner’s body.

The Sexy Stork

If you've got no plans this weekend, why not try out the sexy stork position If you’ve got no plans this weekend, why not try out the sexy stork position

Unlike the name suggests, this move isn’t designed to give you children – just soaring heights of ecstasy. 

Website Sex Positions explains exactly how to master the Sexy Stork – and why it’s a must for your weekend to-do list.

They said: “The man stands back to the table, slightly rests on it with his buttocks with his legs shoulder-width apart. 

“The woman stands facing the partner. One of her legs is on the floor, the second is on the tabletop.

“She bends it at the knee and lifts it onto the tabletop. She wraps her arms around his neck. 

“The male partner takes his lover by the shoulders or he can caress her back and buttocks.”

And they shared a tip to make this move even saucier, adding: “The girl should let the man do most of the work as it’s a position for him to feel dominant in – and for her to feel submissive.”

The Seashell

 This position promises two for the price of oneThis position promises two for the price of one

The saucy pose can be delivered either ‘high’ or ‘low’, meaning you get two positions for the price of one.

To master the Seashell, first you need to lie on your back propped up on your elbows, and bring your legs up as high as they can go.

Ideally you want them near your ears, but make sure you only go as far as you’re comfortable to.

Your partner then lies on top of you, with their arms supporting their weight, and enters you.

Tiger style

 Why not try doing it tiger style this bank holiday?Deviate from doggy with ‘tiger style’

Why not try a spiced up version of the popular doggy by doing it tiger style – and it only requires a slight adjustment to reap the pleasurable rewards.

Doing it tiger style involves the woman posing on all fours on the beds, with her knees close to the edge.

The man (or tiger) stands behind her with his feet on the floor and can use his hands to wander around her body from behind.

Hot doggy

 Ot you can also try the 'Hot Doggy is another updated version of the classic doggy position

The Hot Doggy provides you with warming skin-to-skin contact – without losing the benefits of classic doggy.

Instead of going onto your hands and knees, lie face-down on your bed. Your partner can then pull your sheets over the top of you both, before moving into position.

You don’t have to do a whole lot else, so it’s perfect if you’re having a lazy day.

The Couch Canoodle

The Couch Canoodle is perfect if you are watching Netflix at the same time

Do you often spend your evenings settling down to watch a few box sets with your other half instead of getting some action?

If you could do with a little less binging and a little more bonking then this sex position is perfect for you.

The Couch Canoodle is designed to be tried on the sofa and is ideal for heating things up while you’re Netflix and chilling.

Begin by having your partner sit on the sofa, lowering yourself onto him with your knees splayed so that your legs sit either side of his lap.

Slowly lean all the way back so that you’re almost upside down, and place your hands on the floor to support yourself.

Have him enter you and then thrust back and forward while opening and closing your legs.

The Speed Bump

The Speed Bump sex position is a simple take on traditional 'doggy style'The Speed Bump sex position is a simple take on traditional ‘doggy style’

If you fancy the idea of sex but really can’t be bothered to put in all the effort for energetic acrobatics, we may have found the position for you.

You may wish to try the Speed Bump bedroom move, which is easy to master and promises intense pleasure while relaxing and lying down.

Perfect for lazy women, this simple version of doggy-style involves lying on your stomach with a pillow underneath your hips.

You can relax while your partner – who is kneeling – enters from behind while holding your hips for support.

One of the great things about this intimate move is it allows couples to get closer than traditional doggy-style, according to Metro.

Meanwhile, the focus on the woman’s G-spot from the positioning of the pillow also makes it much easier to reach a climax.

Your partner can either remain with his torso upright or lean over your back for extra intimacy.

The Lightning Bolt

The Lightning Bolt position will have you seeing starsThe Lightning Bolt position will have you seeing stars

Want to see stars and get that spark back? The Lightning Bolt move may be for you.

The bloke must maintain a tall, erect pose while she gets to work on the lightning move.

Gently lift one leg above your lover’s head and grab it with the hand on the same side of the body.

Keep your balance while holding onto a chair and let him penetrate you from behind.

Forget thunderstorms outside, you’ll be creating your own inside.

The Sprinkler

The Sprinkler sex position is ideal for couples keen to avoid getting too sweaty during the heatwaveThe Sprinkler sex position is ideal for couples keen to avoid getting too sweaty

You might want to try The Sprinkler sex position, which is a racy move that thankfully won’t leave you too hot and heavy. 

The cheeky position can be nailed with the man reclining on an armchair or propped up on a bed in a half-lying stance, with his legs wide apart. 

The woman then sits on his lap with her back facing him, using her arms to support her body on the armrest and her tiptoes on the floor. 

To make The Sprinkler even more sexy, the woman can half turn towards him so he gets a full view of her body and eye contact can be made. 

You will both have an intense ride but without feeling like you need to jump into an ice bath straight after.

Thunder buddies

The easiest position involves the woman leaning over a table while her partner lifts his leg onto itThe Thunder Buddies position involves the woman leaning over a table while her partner lifts his leg onto it

If you’re looking to tackle your phobia of thunder and lightning once and for all, then the Thunderstorm sex position is the way to go.

To try it out at home, the move involves the woman leaning over a table while standing on her tip-toes with her legs apart.

Granted, this sex position is much easier for us girls – as the man has to stand behind and lift his leg up onto the table.

While you grip onto the table for support, your partner holds onto your waist while you rock back and forth together.

And trust us, you’re guaranteed to forget all about the thunder and lighting outside.

Previously, Dr Pam Spurr revealed seven ways women can guarantee to climax.

And woman reveals how she went from being a dancer to organising sex parties all over the world.

Meanwhile a lady shared how her boyfriend’s 8.5inch penis caused them to break up – because having sex was so ‘hard‘.

My bitter ex told lies to my friends about my ‘small manhood’ after I dumped her 0 40

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger.

She never complained when we were together, but last week she told the girls in our group that being with me was “like kissing a soggy lettuce leaf” and that she “literally didn’t feel a thing when we were having sex” because I’m so small.

My ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger

I’m 25 and she’s 24. I think part of it is jealousy.

She knows a couple of the other girls fancy me and I think she’s trying to sabotage any chance I have with them.

Not that I’m even planning anything.

She’s so insecure and has a vicious tongue on her.

I’m tempted to let each of her so-called friends know what she really says about them in private.

Even her best friend gets a nasty critique every time she posts anything on Instagram.

You could maybe reply with: “Let’s just say she never complained when we were together and nor have any of my other exes.”

Your friends will soon see her behaviour for what it is – jealous insecurity.

My partner said he was on a work trip – but he was actually getting married and on his honeymoon 0 28

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner said he was on a work trip two months ago, but he had actually got married and been on honeymoon.

Our relationship had become a bit predictable, but we still had regular sex and nice days out with our two young sons.

My partner lied about his work trip – he was really on his HONEYMOON

I’m 32 and he’s 37. Our sons are four and two.

When he returned from his “work trip” he blamed me for his cheating, saying I had let myself go and didn’t pay him enough attention.

He then told me he’d “traded up” for a better model. It didn’t stop there.

He said that his wife, who is 27, is absolutely stunning and makes him feel special.

Apparently this woman was a barmaid he’d met on a golf trip and they had been seeing each other for six months.

He told me all this, then marched upstairs and packed his games console and his clothes and drove off out of my life.

The thing is, we always talked about getting married but when we had kids there always seemed something better to spend our money on.

Mutual friends have told me he has moved into a new-build home on the other side of our small town and his wife has plenty of family money.

My sons are really missing him and I don’t even know how I feel.

Sometimes when he comes to visit the boys I beg him to come home.

But other times I’m so angry with him, I refuse to let him in.

Now he is accusing me of stopping him from seeing his children.

I caught my husband snogging my sister – how am I meant to trust him again?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry your partner ended your relationship in such a cruel way.

This man sounds selfish and immature, and quite frankly the way he has treated you is emotionally abusive.

It won’t feel like it now, but you really are better off without him.

He is behaving like he still lives in your home, by just turning up unannounced.

Tell him firmly that you would encourage a good relationship between him and your sons but he can only collect them with prior arrangement.

Start to put down your boundaries.

I’m sending you my support pack When Parents Fall Out, which you could pass to him to help explain why you need to co-operate for the future wellbeing of your children.
