Let's cut to the chase. Sex is good for you (it exercises your heart, has been shown in studies to correlate with being less stressed and early research suggests that getting down weekly ups your production of immunoglobulin, an antibody that fends off illness).
But, if you're in a monogamous relationship, you'll know that staying, erm, inspired can be tricky. Which is why trying new positions is a good shout. If you want to try something new – and want to feel confident doing it – then allow WH to introduce: the eagle.
What is the eagle?
The eagle, or spread eagle, is a sex position which involves you lying on your back, spreading your legs really wide, to allow your partner to hang over you. The result? Deep penetration.
How to do the eagle sex position
Ready? Here's how it's done.
1/ Get into position
First, do some warm-up stretches. OK, now you're ready. From missionary position, raise your legs and extend them straight out (forming a “V”).
2/ What's the benefit?
Apart from showing off how flexible you are? This saucy move also allows for deep penetration.
3/ Next-level move
Try grabbing your ankles for more stability and an added stretch. That's tomorrow's yoga class cancelled, then.
