Look, I'm a woman who has a hard time getting out of bed at any time of day, even if there's sex involved. But, I'm resolving to be less lazy, especially because I've been dying to try standing sex. Whether you spend all day at a desk or on your feet, standing sex is an experience that really does make you weak in the knees, (or so I've heard).  Reasons to try standing sex at least once include fulfilling my fantasy, and maybe your own. About 95 percent of people have sexual fantasies, reported Women's Health. Do you share my fantasy of standing sex? If so, it's a pretty one easy one to act out.

You've watched your favorite actors do it on-screen and make it look totally hot. But you don't need a Hollywood set to have mind-blowing standing sex. All you need is a little creativity, a willing partner, and perhaps a pair of heels (or footstool). As a vertically challenged person, I'll admit, one of the dilemmas of standing sex occurs when there's a dramatic difference in height between you and your partner. But, if you're a short girl, there are tricks to solve the ergonomics of standing sex.

If you've always wanted to try this sex act  but are having reservations, it's time to let them go. Because nothing should stand in the way of your fantasy.
