The Easy Move That Makes Doggy-Style Even Better

Use your dirty pillows, and I'm not talking about your boobs.

This week's tip comes courtesy of an article called "Cosmo's 20 Favorite Sex Tips Ever" from 2002, a primitive time when humans may—or may not—have known how to have good sex.

The Tip: "Pillow Power
Great sex is all about angles—the angle of his erection and your pelvis determine exactly what hot spots he'll hit and how tightly he'll feel gripped. That's why pillows can be passion's best friend. Try one under his butt while you're on top or supporting your tailbone in the missionary position. Or use a few to prop yourself up when lying on a counter. And don't be afraid to experiment with odd-size cushions, too. You'll be surprised how many new sensations you both experience just by adding a pillow." —Paul Joannides, author of Guide to Getting It On.

The Setting: The bedroom, due to presence of pillows.

Pillow Selection: Did you know there are actually pillows specifically for having sex on and/or with? They are foam and look kind of like yoga props but might have, like, a dildo sticking out of them—probably so you don't get confused and try to have sex with your yoga mat. 

Pro Tip: Just pick some damn pillows and be done with it.

The Act: We did not immediately tap into the Power of Pillow. I had this idea that I was going to try an assortment of positions, assess each, check, check, check, like a little efficient sex machine. Which is just sooo not conducive to fiery sex and I know this, but I did it anyway.

First I went off-book and tried a freestyle position. I leaned over the side of the bed, face down, body on the bed, legs over the side, pillows under my hips, displaying my woman parts fetchingly. It was fantastic—fabulous angle, raw and animalistic—and better with the pillow than regular doggy-style.

Because I am a journalist, kinda, we went for another angle. This time with a gigantic stack of pillows under my butt and him between my legs, kind of like a wheelbarrow, but with me on my back. I was picturing that this would be insane, with optimum space for any needed extra rubbing, but, for us at least, the angle was a bit off and it was hard to get good leverage. 

Finally I abruptly had him flip over and put a pillow under his butt so I could ride him like a cowgirl. 

The Verdict: Later I had some extra wash to do, but it was completely worth it. Getting cum on your pillows means you're doing something right, I say. It's easier to adjust the angles when all that requires is fluffing a pillow, rather than flexing your butt muscles until they cramp, and sometimes all it takes is the slightest shift to go from boring sex to completely explosive sex. Find yourself some slutty pillows and give it a go.​
