Let’s face it, when you’ve been with someone for a few years, exciting sex can fall to the wayside. You get comfortable, you get complacent, you start to value you your sleep more than you value ... well, most other things, and the rest is history. Suddenly you’re doing the same old thing twice a week to fulfill a sort of sexual quota, rather than enjoying moments of intimacy with your partner. How to fix this conundrum? There seem to be plenty of pointers out there for heteronormative couples, but how about same sex positions for long term couples?
Long term couples enjoy the privilege of familiarity, trust, and a strong base of knowledge about their partners. For some this can lead to a sexual-rut. But when you take that same trust and knowledge and use it to your advantage, you can really amp up your sex life. As Romper primarily focuses on motherhood and the female gaze on life, I decided to stick with same-sex couples of the female variety. Sara, 31, has been in her current relationship for five years, and Melanie, 29, has been in her current relationship for two years. With their help, and the help of a little bit of internet research, I dove into the world of sex positions for same sex couples who have had the privilege of being together for a few years. Because it turns out, trust is sexy as hell, and so is being in a long term committed relationship.
