How To Have Sex In Every Room In Your House

Photographed by Lula Hyers.
Whether you live in a studio apartment the size of a shoebox, a shared apartment with five roommates, or a mansion with a guest house, you should take advantage of the space you have to have sex. The bed is an obvious location for hooking up; it's comfortable, big, and private. But expanding your sex life to other rooms — or corners — of your home can be thrilling and feel extra sexy.
Having sex around the house does require some creativity and experimentation. If you live with other people, it also takes respectful planning, because if your roommates or family members walk in on you having sex on the kitchen counter, they might be pissed — or at least make you clean the kitchen.

So, if you need some ideas for where to start your home-sex journey, we've compiled positions that work in every room. Who knows? Maybe this will inspire you and bae to move in together so you can have sex wherever and whenever you want.

Bedroom

This is a more adventurous twist on the classic Cowgirl position that involves using your bed in an unconventional way. Here, the giver lies on their back, with their hips and legs on the edge of the bed, but their torso off the bed. The receiver holds onto the giver's hands to keep from falling. This angle also allows for deeper penetration.

Kitchen

One partner sits on the kitchen counter, while the other sits on a chair or stool and performs oral sex. Even if your partner can't cook to save their life, chances are they'll have something delicious for you to eat up.

Bathroom

Shower sex can be steamy, and it can also be slippery. This easy Kama Sutra position is less risky than other shower sex positions, because it's done in a seated position. The receiver sits on the giver's lap, and spreads their legs so the giver can provide clitoral stimulation or penetration at the same time.

Stairs

For this standing sex position, the receiver stands facing the giver and wraps their leg around their partner's hips. Having one leg lifted helps the receiver control the speed and depth of penetration. And if you don't have stairs in your home, you can always use a step-stool to mimic the levels.

Living Room

Seamlessly transition from Netflix to chill with this couch position. It looks acrobatic, but it's simple: the giver sits on the couch and the receiver sits straddling the penis or object with their back to the giver. For even more control, the receiver can place their hands on the floor and arch their back.

Patio

Many people fantasize about having sex outdoors, because there's always a chance you could get caught. Technically, having sex in a public place is illegal in many states. If you're on your own property, though, you should be okay. Try this position on a picnic table: the giver stands, while the receiver sits on the table with their legs wrapped around the giver for more friction.

Dining Room

If you only use your dining room for special occasions, well, this oral sex position is special enough. The receiver sits in a chair, and the giver kneels and performs oral sex.

Foyer

You'll need something with handles to hold onto for this position, like your front door or even refrigerator. The receiver begins by placing their hands on the handles, and bending over so the giver can enter from behind. The handles provide support, so the giver can thrust harder. Just make sure nobody comes to your front door.
