8 Sex Positions Perfect For Valentine’s Day

Whatever you do on Valentine's Day — whether you spend your entire last paycheck on a prix fixe meal at a fancy restaurant or just nuke some Bagel Bites in the microwave and catch up on The Bachelor, — if you're with a partner, odds are good your night will end with sex. One 2017 study found that 59% of people in relationships plan to have sex on Valentine’s Day — and so do 16% of singles, who may have scheduled a first date for the occasion.

To make Valentine’s Day sex special, you might decide to get a hotel room. Or if you’re staying at home, you might tidy your things, change your sheets, and light a few candles. You could even break your favorite lingerie or best perfume.

Power Up


Slip a couple’s sex toy (like the We-Vibe Sync) into your vagina so it’s resting against your clitoris before your partner penetrates you with their penis or strap-on. A vibrating cock ring also works.

Face Sitting


This intense oral sex position isn’t technically sitting. Instead, the receiver slowly squats over the giver’s face until their vulva meets their partner’s mouth.
