There are some simple tricks to master standing sex, so your real life can be almost as steamy as your favorite film. It’s also a simple way to reduce your risk of injury, which is always hot.
Really, don’t feel frustrated if standing sex has you baffled, because even sex experts admit it’s something of an advanced position. “Sex standing up can be pretty hot. But it can sometimes be difficult to sustain especially if it lasts a while,” Dr. Rachel Needle, licensed psychologist in West Palm Beach, Florida and Co-Director of Modern Sex Therapy Institutes, tells Romper via email.
