What are the best sex positions during a heatwave? 0 43

BRITS are not built for heatwaves and any kind of exercise falls by the wayside – including sex.

Hot weather shouldn’t stop things heating up in the bedroom, let it inspire you instead to be more playful – here’s the best sex positions to try during a heatwave.

The best sex positions during a heatwave

Sex makes you hot and sweaty at the best of times, and that’s by no means a bad thing but when you’re already boiling you want to keep things cool.

That doesn’t mean you should avoid getting intimate with your partner, just get creative.

As a general rule of heatwaves, remember to drink plenty of water and have a nice cool shower before jumping into bed – with or without your partner.

You can even play with ice cubes if you’re feeling a bit adventurous to help cool you down while things heat up.

While these positions are mainly aimed at straight couples, they can be adapted to suit everyone – just play around and have fun.

Heatwave position

The heatwave position is great for hot days

This one, dubbed the heatwave position, is great if you have a desk or table around, which are cooler surfaces than beds, which you can perch on.

Unlike doggy style, your partner will be facing you making things more intimate and it apparently can help women reach climax faster.

Sit on the edge of a table and the lean back, placing your hands behind your back to support yourself.

With your partner standing facing, you rest one of your legs on their shoulder and bend your other one slightly which you can rest on their thigh.

Use their hands to support your bottom during intercourse while helping you to move them up and down.

Doggy style

A bedroom classic and couples favourite is doggy style and great news it is perfect for heatwaves.

Rather than being all tangled up, you and your partner will have space and an airflow around you.

Simply have one partner on all fours and the other behind, making sure you’re both comfortable.

If things really heat up, switch on a fan and aim it towards you to keep yourselves extra cool.

Pretzel

Change up missionary with the Pretzel or Pretzel dip

For a move that requires almost no effort from one partner, the Pretzel can have big results.

Get your partner to straddle your left leg while you are lying down and wrap your other leg around them while they penetrate you.

For a non-penetrative version, try putting your leg on your partner’s right shoulder and gently grinding instead.

If you really wanna cool things down, lie on a cold tile floor for a refreshing sensation.

Super Soaker

Spice things up buy introducing sex toys into the bedroom, or should we say bathroom, with this bathtub position.

Get some waterproof toys – a trip to a store to choose things together can really help you learn about your partner’s likes and dislikes.

Fill the tub with some cool water and both get in, one of you can drape your legs over the side of the bath for added sexiness.

This can also be done without toys but buying something new together introduces another layer of intimacy and kicks things up a notch.

Mercury Rising

Mercury Rising sex position lets you be intimate

This one is great if you’re in the mood but feeling to lazy for bedroom acrobatics.

Get your partner to sit with legs outstretched or crossed and lower yourself onto their penis (or strap) with your legs wrapped around their body.

Move slowly and enjoy the intimacy, this is minimal effort for those super hot days but still feels great.

While most heatwave positions focus on creating space around you both, this one relies on slow movement to keep you cool.

Oral

It might sound simple but this is a great time to improve your tongue technique as you can keep your distance.

Penetrative sex does not have to be the end goal of your sexual encounter and on super hot days, oral is a great way to satisfy needs without working up a sweat.

The great thing about this is that you and your partner can be seated, lying or standing, keeping sweaty body parts to a minimum.

Take things slow and help guide your partner, this is a marathon not a sprint so enjoy pleasuring them or being pleasured by them – you might find this is enough in the 30 degree heat.

My bitter ex told lies to my friends about my ‘small manhood’ after I dumped her 0 41

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.

Her top is either too short, or her hair looks like wire, or her laugh is fake . . . it goes on and on.

I don’t regret splitting up with her but this last trick has really infuriated me.

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’m a mess and need to start getting a grip for the kids’ sake.

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.
