Sex when you're a parent is different. Whether it's looking for the time to have it or trying to get your kid to sleep so you can do it, sex often feels like a struggle once you have children in the house. Nobody wants their kids to know they're having sex, so knowing the best sex positions to ensure your kid won't hear you may make all the difference in your sex life.
I'm not saying you'll never be able to have the loud, wild sex you did before you became parents, but there's definitely a shift in your sex life once you have a child. There are few things worse than the baby monitor crackling to life with a scream when you're seconds away from an orgasm or hearing your little one pad down the hall just as you were climbing on top of your partner. Adding in the fear that your child will hear you getting it on and be ruined for life? No thank you.
Sex educator and counselor Hannah-Marie Greene tells Romper that she has worked with many couples who are also parents and one of their biggest concerns is their children walking in on them having sex. "Sex is a natural thing, but it can be off-putting to think about your child knowing you have a sex life," Greene says. "Not to mention, who wants to wake their child up at night anyway? There are plenty of ways you can have sex without your kids noticing and they aren't all bland. You just might have to save the really good sex for when they head to grandma's."
If you can wrap presents and create the magic of Santa without waking your kids, then you can have sex in your own house, too. Greene gave Romper nine of the best sex positions to ensure your kid won't hear you so you can get it on without worries or concerns.
