This one is really relaxing, easy, and still packs a whole lot of pleasure! It’s perfect for reintroducing sex back into your life. This position is also great because you can mix up the body positions slightly to hit some different angles.
How to do it:
First, the penetrated partner lays on their back and swings their legs over so they’re in an 'L' shape. Their partner lies by their side, entering from behind.
Lay close together, and really enjoy the moment and the feeling of your partner. The penetrating partner should keep it gentle with nice, slow strokes to get it started.Go at a pace you’re comfortable with, and only ramp it up when it feels right!
Now you have a position in your arsenal that is great for enjoying some intimacy with your partner - postpartum or not!
