So, you have a three-day weekend. Why not put those extra 24 hours of free time to good use? And we’re not talking about brunch. We’re talking about sex. (Although hopefully, you have time in your schedule for both.)
A three-day weekend is the perfect time for sex that involves a little more time, planning, and props. Quickies are for weeknights. Now is the time for elaborate role play, karezza, shibari, and multiple orgasms.
“If you're heading away for the weekend, consider bringing a few kinks with you,” Daniel Saynt, sex educator and Chief Conspirator at sex and cannabis members club the New Society for Wellness, previously told Refinery29. “Take the weekend to spend time learning a new skill together and then quickly put your knowledge into action.” This applies just as much to a stay-cation, too.
Here are some sex marathon tips to get you started before you spend the whole day in bed (or on the couch, or the kitchen counter, or the shower, or a rug in front of a fire…).
Make a yes/no/maybe list
If you and your partner are interested in trying something new in bed, but are a bit shy about voicing your fantasies or just need some inspiration, then a yes/no/maybe list is perfect for you. These lists spell out different sexual activities — blindfolds, anal sex, watching porn together — and you each decide if each activity is a “yes” (you want to try it), a “no” (you definitely don’t want to try it), or a “maybe” (you might be up for trying it in certain circumstances).
Karezza, also called “slow sex,” prioritizes caressing and emotionally connecting with your partner over orgasm — perfect for a long, lazy weekend in bed.
Go for BDSM
Tie your partner up
Take out that sexy nurse costume or pair your favorite pencil skirt with a sheer top to DIY a hot secretary look.
Try for multiple orgasms
Sex coach Myisha Battle previously told Refinery29 that if you’re trying for multiple orgasms, think of pleasure like a wave: “A lot of people have the experience of, ‘Okay, I’m on this wave of pleasure, and when that wave is over, that’s all I have in me,’” she said. “But there’s actually the potential to continue riding that wave.”
Have anal sex
Have sex in a new position
Move to a new location
Simply having sex somewhere that’s not your own bed can make the experience feel so much more exciting. Get on the couch, the kitchen counter, or a rug on the floor (bonus points if there’s a fireplace). If you can get out of town for a night, have hotel sex or vacation sex. And if you’re daring, you can even go for some form of public sex, such as slipping a wearable vibrator into your panties before heading out to the bar.
