A really good kiss does all kinds of secret biological stuff like assessing the health and genetic compatibility of your mate, but we love it (consciously, at least) 'cause it's so damn swoony to smooch someone you really, really like. So why not have the best of both worlds and have sex WHILE being in the perfect pose for some quick pecks or a full makeout sesh? Here are five to try:
The Lovers' Cradle
The most intimate, sweet, couple-y position you can possibly do is lying side-by-side, legs and arms wrapped around each other, exploring your bodies with slow, deep kisses, coming up every once in while to share a gaze of "Fuck, I am so into you." (And go ahead and throw a vibrator or toy down there for a greatly increased chance of orgasm).
The Come Here, You
Sit on the edge of a table, using your legs to draw your partner closer for intense kisses with full chest-to-chest contact. This move has been in so many romantic movie sex scenes for a reason!
The Dry Hump Redux
Remember those first hot fever dream makeout sessions, where you'd be kissing and just sort of desperately pressing against each other? Well, do that. Keep your clothes on and kiss your way through a long-ass playlist, really focusing on each other and seeing how completely turned on you can get without actually removing any underwear.
The Lap Of Luxury
Do a slow strip, punctuating each new reveal with a little grind and a slow string of kisses up their jawline to their ear where you are free to whisper incredibly lovey (or filthy) things. Leaving something on—a pair of ass-kicking boots or their shirt makes it that much sexier.
The Just Kiss Me, You Fool!
The Lotus pose is a classic for all things kissy because you can mack on each other all you want. Plus, it restricts you to the kind of slow-grinding thrusts that make it easier for some women to have an orgasm.
