A nondescript brown box hovered above the welcome mat outside my apartment, postmarked with a warehouse address. As I used my keys to tear open the industrial-strength masking tape, I already knew what was inside the box: a small and spring-loaded dildo rocking chair, similar to the one that George Clooney cavalierly shows Frances McDormand in the movie Burn After Reading. But as I watched the very purple head of the dildo bob up and down, appearing above the seat with every up-swing, it definitely kept my attention. I ordered the dildo rocking chair to conduct an experiment with sex furniture , a relatively amorphous term that's basically used to describe any large contraption that you fuck. An added benefit: it can help you burn a bunch of calories. Examples include a swing, a harness, a chair, or , if you have deep pockets, a full-blown machine.
HIV is transmitted through seminal and vaginal fluids, including menstrual fluids. The virus can enter the body through the bloodstream or by passing through delicate mucous membranes, such as inside the vagina, rectum or urethra. If a person gives fellatio and has bleeding gums, a cut, or an ulcer inside their mouth, HIV could enter their bloodstream through infected fluid. This could also happen if infected fluid from a woman gets into the mouth of her partner during oral sex. Using a condom during sex, including oral and anal sex, is the best way to prevent sexually transmitted infections STIs , including HIV.
Oral sex is a highly intimate sex act. Many people actually find oral sex to be way more intimate than intercourse. Yet, oral sex is also one of the most pleasurable and orgasmic sex acts, so learning how to enjoy it fully is an essential step in loving your sex life. Oral sex positions do more than create specific angles and access to sensitive spots: they communicate your feelings and excitement about receiving oral sex. In researching our book, The Pleasure Mechanics Guide To Cunnilingus , we surveyed thousands of men and women about what they find sexy about oral sex.
When it comes to receiving oral sex, many women's default position is to get on their backs. And there's a lot to be said for that: You can relax and let your partner worry about what to do. But there's also a lot to be said for receiving oral on top, AKA face-sitting. For one thing, it puts you in complete control, and some women find that it also provides a better angle. If straddling your partner's face sounds intimidating, we get it.
