What is the most comfortable sexual position?

Redboxbaby Redboxbaby
My husband and I are in our late 30's and we have been going at it like rabbits for the past few months and sadly, it is starting to catch up to us. We are by no means ready to slow things down, however, we are looking for better positions for alleviating his sore knees and hips and my sore upper and lower back.

If you are looking for something to take away the stree/pain from the various areas that you have mentioned, then side by side is a good idea. I find that it can be less active than the other positions and has worked for me when one of us was worn out a bit.

The most comfortable for me is when my partner is on top. I just lie there, relax, and let him do all the work.

In our late 30's we find it best to switch positions every 5-10 minutes. Also some pillows help with the wife's back a bunch.

Doggie is the easiest and most comfortable for us but we're in our early 20's. If you guys are having knee and hip issues I would recommend maybe side by side or even trying out the liberators. They have some great shapes specially designed to facilitate most sexual positions.

Any, me on top or bottom

I would suggest trying a position where you are both lying on your side, it should alleviate stress on joints and back. Also position pillows like the Wedge or Ramp can provide support in other positions.

Your best bet is to try them out and see what you think, since everybody's a little different. Side by side/spooning doesn't put much strain on joints, so that might be a good start.

My suggestion would be what other's have said; try a sex position aid lie the wedge or ramp Laurel suggested.

I'd also suggest trying furniture, for example have him sit on the couch while you straddle him. That way you can be on top but you can also hold on to the arm of the couch, or the back or even his shoulders to help support you.

I was gonna say man on top and doggie, but yeah for the areas you specifically mentioned, I'd definitely say try side by side

It is most comfortable for me with him on top, or side-by-side. Me on top is comfortable for a while, but too long makes my knees hurt.

I voted for doggie, but I need to have my Liberator Wedge for support. Aging sucks.

If he has sore knees and hips then man on top probably isn't too good, since the guy has to hold himself up (or squish his partner).

So there lol I tend to be on top a lot with hubby's aches and pains (not that I'm complaining!) But if I start hurting (I have bad knees from a car accident) we simply use many different positions during the encounter. Take turns on the burden of weight.

I think man on top is most comfortable, but for your husband's sore knees I voted for side by side.

Agreed. Liberator gear works wonders! We have a small Liberator "Jaz" and it alone relieves a good bit of stress.
We're definitely going to upgrade to a larger one in the future since we love this one so much.

I love me some doggie style! It's my favorite, you can do it standing up, bent over, anywhere really. If you want to alleviate pain I suggest looking into some sex furniture such as liberator gear, maybe a nice ball (although a regular exercise ball works well for me to help with back pain during sex) or you could even grab some absolutely wonderful massage candles to help rub out the aches!

Thanks for the suggestions. We love our Liberator Combo set and use it all the time. We were just wondering if there was anyone out there that maybe found a different way other than what is already the "norm". Side by side does seem to be the most pain free and most comfortable. I am all for the massages!

Side by side would definitely work for your situations

It would be a bit more work, but perhaps a sling or harness? You could be supported in it and your husband could stand up.

I'd definitely say side by side gets my vote! It's the most comfortable for both parties by far (in my opinion any how) .

I find climbing up top and then laying down (like I'm cuddling him) is very easy on the body too. We just take that one nice and slow. He does a little then I do a little and it's quite enjoyable.

Personally, I prefer doggie for comfort, and just about every other reason! guy on top is a pretty close second, but doggie never fails!

You do need to be able to support yourself in doggie, and it does put your weight on your hips and knees.

Here is position which works good for me.She rests both legs on one of your shoulders, which narrows her vagina. Then slide her feet down to your chest, one foot on each of your pectoral muscles, and start her in a rocking side-to-side or up-and-down motion. You have great access to her G-spot. But make sure she's flexible enough before folding her in half.

side by side is nice, almost romantic position.

Its a very loving and gentle way to have sex.
