When you've been in a relationship for a certain amount of time, you occasionally go along with sex because your partner instigates it. Not because you're feeling particularly sexy or because it was on your mind, but because your partner wants to have sex. You might've heard this phenomenon called "duty sex" or "maintenance sex." And while maintenance sex has a reputation for being a little bit lackluster, it doesn't have to be. There are plenty of maintenance sex positions that'll spice up your relationship, and take your so-called maintenance sex to the next level. Because if you're going to be having sex, even if you're not particularly into it when it's initiated, you ought to be enjoying it by the time you're in the throes of a climax.
Of course, you could deny your partner sex when you don't feel like having it — that's absolutely your right to do so. But there's a good chance that in order for your relationship to succeed, you and your partner will both have to make some compromises. And sooner or later, this includes getting yourself in the mood for your partner. Your desires won't always align with your partners, and neither will your libido.
So if you and your partner are of the mind that sex is an important part of your relationship, chances are good that you'll wind up having maintenance sex at least some of the time. And even though it might not start out as a super sexy rendezvous, with the addition of some of these positions your maintenance sex has the possibility of becoming a little less maintenance, and a lot more mind blowing.
