Love Island sex positions from The Broken Eagle to the Viennese Oyster explained 0 48

LOVE Island has returned, and with it comes the Islanders naming their favourite sex position and viewers frantically googling just what it is they’re talking about.

Wasting no time on this, early in one of the series’ first episode, Islander Luca Bish, 23, asked the girl he was then coupled up with, Paige Thorne, 24, what her favourite sex position is.

Paige Thorne and Luca Bish left viewers rather confused when talking about their favourite sex positionsRex

When Paige announced that her favourite position is the ‘Broken Eagle’, Luca replied that his was the “something Oyster” by which he likely means the Viennese Oyster.

This conversation led many viewers to social media to ask just what these positions are.

One Twitter user joked: “Broken Eagle… The Oyster?!? They’re absolutely making up these sex positions lmao #LoveIslandUK #loveIsland”

Others were rather confused by the fishy name of one of these positions: “What the hell are these seafood sex positions may I ask #LoveIsland”

The Broken Eagle

Paige’s favourite position, the Broken Eagle

Paige’s favourite position, the Broken Eagle, is a somewhat low effort (at least for the receiving partner) version of the Eagle sex position – a favourite of previous Love Island contestant Curtis Pritchard.

To get into the Broken Eagle position, the receiving partner will lie on their stomach with one leg bent and straight. The penetrating partner will then enter from behind and begin to thrust.

A rather easy position for the receiving partner, with the penetrating partner doing most of the work.

The Viennese Oyster

Luca’s favourite position is the Viennese Oyster

This requires a bit more effort and a lot more flexibility than the Broken Eagle, and is all about that deep penetration,

To get into the Viennese Oyster position, the receiving partner will lie down on their back, spreading their legs up in the air.

The penetrating partner will then grab their partners ankles and push their legs back toward their head. Be sure to communicate while doing this to insure that no injury occurs.

Once the receiving partner’s legs are pushed back as far as they can go, the penetrating partner enters, either kneeling or standing, and begins to thrust.

It’s recommended that you begin slowly in this position, as it is one where it is possible to potentially go a little too deep.

Variations on the Viennese Oyster

There are a few variations on this position that you can enjoy:

The Anvil

One for those not quite flexible enough for the full oyster – the Anvil can also deliver the same deep penetration without having your legs behind your head.

The receiving partner will lie on their back, with the penetrating partner on their knees.

From here the receiving partner will place their legs on the shoulders of their partner. 

The penetrating partner can then enter and thrust away – with the receiving partner’s hands free to do whatever they wish.

The Launch Pad

Instead of the receiving partner having their legs spread in the air and pushed back, the Launch Pad will have them scooping their legs to their chest, as if entering the foetal position.

They will then place their feet on the chest of the kneeling penetrating partner, who will then begin thrusting.

The Spread Eagle

Something of a mix between the Eagle and Oyster, this is a rather popular position where the receiving partner lies on their back with the legs spread and in the air.

The penetrating partner will kneel, or stand, at their partner’s knees and hold their legs while thrusting.

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.

DEAR DEIDRE

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.
