There’s a reason some people have a million pillows on their bed… it’s the best sex accessory you can have, and you won’t be embarrassed if curious hands stumble upon it! Besides using it to keep quiet when you aren’t alone with your man, using a pillow or two can transform nearly any position for a deeper, more tantalizing experience.
But before you dive on it, remember this sanitary rule of thumb: keep designated ‘love’ pillows around and avoid using the ones you sleep on. You don’t have to go out and buy a wedge pillow designed for sex (though they’re pretty freakin’ cool), but be sure to have one on hand that is comfortable, fairly thick and can fold in half for adaptability.
Ready to have some fun with this highly underrated love-making tool? Add it to your sexual repertoire with these simple acts and you’ll never be able to do the deed without one!
If he’s going down on you, do him a favor and slide a folded pillow under your hips to lift your pelvis a few inches. This will take the strain off his neck and allow him to explore more of your sensitive zones down there. It also means no more bridge position for you, giving you absolutely nothing to concentrate on other than enjoying every pleasure-filled moment. And when either of you are receiving some oral action, put a couple of pillows under your neck to watch the action that’s happening below!
Girl-on-top is a tough position to master (though our step-by-step guide has your back), but a pillow makes things easier to ride it out like a pro. Especially if your guy is *generously packaged*, propping a pillow under both knees gives you more leverage for bouncing and you’ll have less ground to cover with every movement.
Don’t get us wrong; doggy style is a blast. But depending on the size difference between you and your guy, the angles might make things a major challenge. Try the ‘lazy dog’ instead by lying face down with a pillow under your stomach and legs together. He’ll do the deed just like normal doggy, but this snug fit will help make him feel like he’s really filling you up and every thrust will feel tighter/ahh-mazing for you. There’s also a light pressure on your stomach which feels oddly sexy and actually makes orgasm easier!
If missionary is your go-to move, take things to new heights by placing a pillow under your booty and throwing your legs over his shoulders. This subtle lift and angle shift makes it easier for him to hit your G-spot and there’ll be no more awkward knee bruises from your knobs accidentally clanking together… not speaking from personal experience or anything, obviously.
Get up to get down, lovers! Have him stand while you lie back on the edge of the bed, placing your ankles on his shoulders and using a pillow to adjust your height if the bed is low, he’s tall, etc.. If you don’t need this little lift, you can also turn over (face down) with your feet on the floor and place a pillow under your stomach for a mild, comfortable pressure in this X-rated from-behind position.
If he needs a bit of destimulation to last longer (ain’t no shame in that game!), just place a pillow underneath him while you’re on top. Try it with the pillow in multiple positions along his back, hips and pelvis to find an angle that works for both of you. Will this little hold-off technique mean you reach the big ‘O’ together? Best of luck!
Spooning sex can be an awkward position to figure out since there isn’t a lot of wiggle room—literally. And there’s really nothing sexy about feeling like a tipped over clamshell with your legs awkwardly spread so he can get in the groove. What can fix this weird sex dilemma? Stick a small pillow between your knees and spoOOOon away.
Side positions (spooning or otherwise) can also be tough to execute if you and your partner are different sizes! Prop the smaller of you up with a pillow to even out that size deficit and close up the space between your bodies for a ~close~ tantric experience.
So there you have it. Before your head hits the pillow tonight, have another one serve a very different purpose for you and your lover… THIS is what dreams are made of.
