Intercourse

 

For a lot of us, penis-in-vagina intercourse is the happily standard entrée of our sexual life. (Oral sex and anal sex you can find at their own hubs.) In WholeSexLife’s opinion, it’s not just procreation, and never has been. Even animals demonstrably have sex for fun — if you’re a bonobo (pygmy chimpanzee), it’s how you release social tension.

Intercourse can have a lot of variation — as a friend of ours says, “Vanilla is actually a subtle, exotic flavor.” There’s a lot to know, do, see, play with. Who’s on top, what works, what doesn’t, the g spot, more.

You can vary things with different positions. Many women find female-superior positions make it easier to orgasm. Others prefer “doggy style” for just this reason. Sexuality has so much variation — consider trying something new. If you haven’t done it yet, or haven’t tried for a while, find the g-spot during intercourse, or use toys. Different positions aren’t just about sexual athleticism but also about finding new and different sensations for your pleasure. And for your partner’s. One of the best things about intercourse is that it’s shared.
