The Best Sex Positions for Any Kind of Lover

The popular health website Livestrong reached out to Heather Jeffcoat for her expertise in overcoming sexual pain and discomfort due to vaginsmus and other diagnoses. Penned by none other than August McLaughlin of the popular Girl Boner Radio show, you can be sure that this read will be time well spent.

There is Poetry in Variety

McLaughlin begins with an analogous reference to the late William Cowper:

When poet William Cowper said, “Variety’s the very spice of life, that gives it all its flavor,” he may very well have been talking about the bedroom. A little (or a lot) of variety can make sex more fun and pleasurable, but when a physical condition makes certain positions challenging or painful, finding safe, creative alternatives is important.

August turns to Heather for some insight into what positions to avoid and (better yet) which ones to enjoy to not only minimize your pain but maximize your pleasure.

Jeffcoat recommends avoiding the missionary position. Instead, start with the woman who is experiencing pelvic pain on top. This allows her to control the speed and depth of penetration.

“Many women are also more comfortable in a side-lying position with rear vaginal entry,” Jeffcoat adds.

I finally brought it up to my doctor because I was turning 40 and my...

      "I had a severe tear during childbirth that was not stitched together correctly and therefore healed poorly. Even after having a surgery a year later to remove the scar tissue, I was still having pain, and no one could explain why -- there was no overt 'reason' to explain the pain. I had tried other 'specialists' and even saw another physical therapist who had me do hip / leg stretches -- what a joke! I was about to give up and just 'live with it' until thankfully I kept searching online and...
