5 Mystical Ways To Have Amazing Full Moon Sex

This article was originally published on April 5, 2017. We're bringing it to your attention now in light of this month's upcoming full moon.
The next full moon is this Friday, and if you let it, it can light up your sex life. This full moon falls in Sagittarius, a sign known for its playful and adventurous energy. If you feel a little friskier than usual as the end of the week approaches, it's not in your head — it's in the air, actually.

"Since the full moon connects us to our shadow side, that also means it connects us to our feral side, the side of us that is deeply wild, and more physical than it is mental," says Gabriela Herstik, a Los Angeles-based witch with a practice rooted in the divine feminine, moon magic, and fashion magic.. "The moon is connected to the divine feminine in us, and sexual energy is some of the strongest energy of all."
And anyone, not just those who identify as witches, can reap the benefits of full moons, since they're notorious for bringing out our primal sides — which can mean uninhibited (and even unusual) sex. That can include howling during intercourse, or any other form of animalistic, uninhibited pleasure.
For people who do practice witchcraft, though, the full moon is viewed as a powerful time to perform sex magic, or harnessing sexual energy through orgasms to manifest your intentions. In layman's terms, that means visualizing something that you want to bring into your life — anything from a promotion to more confidence to changes in your love life — as you come as a sort of orgasmic prayer. Sometimes sex magic can involve period blood, since it's used in offerings or while casting spells. (More on that later.)
But like we said, you don't have to be into the occult to enjoy full moon sex. You might just have to tap into your primal side to make your animalistic sexual urges a reality. Not sure where to start? Read on to learn about some of the many wild ways people have full moon sex — and perhaps even try one on June 9.

Get off on period sex.

In Pagan practices, the moon is viewed as a symbol of the goddess and our inner intuition, and there's a long-standing belief that the moon is connected to our menstrual cycles (there's no research to back this up, but hey, they both happen once a month). "If you’re on your period, try working with your blood as an offering and connection to the moon," Herstik says. "View your love-making as a gift to the divine."

And it doesn't have to be overly complicated. Magic is all about intention, so if you have period sex while thinking about the power of your feminine side (a.k.a. the feminine divine), you're doing it. Some witches use period blood to paint sigils (symbols believed to have magical power) on their body, their lover's body, or on paper, or they use it to dress a candle when performing candle magic. Just make sure to get consent before sharing your period blood with others.

Sound too far out for you? For those that don't identify as witches, having period sex during a full moon can simply be a great excuse to get messy and tap into your primal nature. When you're caught up in the moment, who cares about how much of a mess you make while love-making? "Don’t be afraid to let out your wild side, but of course, make sure you communicate if you’re with a partner," Herstik says.

Have sex outdoors.

The upcoming full moon, which will hit its peak at 9:10 a.m. EST, will naturally light up the sky, making it easier to see your partner should you feel bold enough to venture outside together and make love like cats and dogs. Take it from Reddit user deutschlandgal: "One night, my boyfriend and I went up to a picnic spot at a lookout that overlooked the city. We were kissing, and the next thing I knew, I had my pants off... The moon was full, and the light was bright there, and we laid down on the ground and fucked again. I looked up to the moon and trees not caring who saw us."

Masturbate.

If you're interested in trying out some sex magic by visualizing your desires as you climax, try masturbating this full moon. "Orgasms are some of the most potent and powerful releases of energy," Herstik says. "The full moon is a time for manifestation, for attracting what you want more of. An easy way to do this is to work with your orgasms [by visualizing your desires and intentions as you come]."

The best part, according to Herstik: "You don't even need a partner." In fact, some practicing witches even believe sex magic is more powerful when you're alone, as you're less distracted and there's no one else there to mess with your vibe.

HAVE SEX LIKE A WEREWOLF USING TOYS.

And now for a full moon sex tip straight out of the horror movies: Have sex life a werewolf. Werewolves, or "Lycans," as popularized by the Underworld films, have attracted a sex cult following. On the kinky social network FetLife, the search term "werewolf" produces 36 group results. One of the main way werewolf enthusiasts rock out their kink? By getting it on during the full moon through role-play with the help of sex toys, like an attachable penis sheath called the "Cadejo" meant to resemble a werewolf penis.

Reddit user carnal_chameleon, a werewolf fetishist, describes his full moon sex routine, which includes unscrewing the light bulbs, lighting a candle, sliding on his Cadejo, and taking his partner "Wolfie-Style." "It was difficult, at first, to get into the right 'wolf' head space," he writes. "However, once I let my primal urges take over, I found myself growling, biting her neck, and even howling. Having a 'transformed' penis brought me a whole new kind of pleasure."

If you want to have sex like a werewolf on the full moon with a sex toy other than the Cadejo, we recommend you try an animal tail butt plug to bring out your inner wolf. Oh, and sex with actual werewolves (should they exist) during the full moon is ill-advised in fetish circles, since werewolves can be particularly violent on those nights (in theory).

Have group sex (or pretend you're having it).

Scenes of blood-filled full moon orgies are largely a stereotype of the occult world. However, that doesn't mean that occultists (and anyone turned on by group sex) can't enjoy the primal powers of the full moon to fulfill their group sex fantasies.

As Reddit user OpenMarriageTales recounts on Reddit, the full moon can turn a "normal get-together" into the "craziest" night of your life. "There had always been some sexual tension amongst our friends, but for some reason, maybe the tequila and full moon, it all came out that night. We talked about what it would be like to swap partners, play erotic games, and even have threesomes or orgies," he writes. "We ended the night with a wild game of 'I’ve Never' which ended with [my wife] Jess and her best friend Jenni going down me while many of our friends watched and then joined in with each other on their own."

Turned on by threesomes, orgies, and gang bangs, but not ready to go as whole hog as OpenMarriageTales? All you need is your partner and the inhibition-lowering full moon to fulfill your wildest group sex fantasies (check out our handy guide here).
