Sex Up Your Sunday: The Slow, Sensual Moves That Require Minimal Effort

It's Sunday night. Chances are you're feeling tired. This doesn't mean that your sex life has to suffer though. Instead why not slow things down a few gears and heat things up in the bedroom?

We know that you’ve got some seriously impressive moves in the bedroom… the problem is that they require a fair bit of energy and, let’s be honest. You have to go back to work tomorrow and you’re absolutely wrecked tired.

So how do you still get it on without using up the precious little energy you have left? You slow things down, you get comfy and cosy with your man and you have some lazy Sunday evening sex. Oh yes.

If you’re unsure of where to start, here’s a few suggestions to get you going in the right direction. Remember: just because you’re tired it doesn’t mean that the sex has to be bad!

Lie back, relax and allow your man to do all the work

Lie down and lift: According to relationship experts, the side by side position is great for hot sex when you’re feeling a little tired. Simply lie flat on your back and lift up the leg that’s nearest to your man. Get your man to do all the work while you lie back and relax. Perfect!

Use a mirror: It sounds a little kinky, but if you have a mirror in your bedroom position it so it reflects on your bed and then have good old fashioned missionary-style sex. Make sure you bring your man’s attention to the mirror before you get started. Remember: men are visual creatures, so the fact that he’ll be able to watch all the action as it’s happening will help to speed things along.

Have a bath: What if you don’t feel like having proper sex and you just want a lazy cuddle? Then draw a bath for yourself and your man. Get him to immerse himself first, then climb in on top of him, so your back is against his chest. Simply enjoy relaxing with each other. You may not feel like having sex when you get in, but you might not be able to resist by the time you get out!

When you’re tired, try some comfort sex

Have comfort sex: According to sexperts, when we have a favourite position it actually makes it easier for us to orgasm in that position. So instead of trying anything complex or new, pick the position that you love the most and take it slow. You’ll be surprise at how hot it can be if you knock the speed down a couple of gears.

Whenever, wherever: Okay, we’re not suggesting that you start going at it in a public place, but if you’re too lazy to get off the sofa and make it to the bedroom simply stay right where you are and just let it happen. Having sex somewhere different for a change can heat up the experience like nothing else (yes, even if you’re on the sofa in your PJs watching reruns of Keeping Up With The Kardashians).
