7 Best Positions For Breaking Out Of A Rut

Getting stuck in a sex rut is a struggle that many couples face. Especially if you've been together a long time or if you live together, it's normal to have your sex life take the occasional nose dive. But when that happens, don't ignore it — it's so much better to fight the complacency. “It’s important to maintain the health of the relationship and not become complacent, too comfortable, or too set in our routines once we live together,” Ravid Yosef, dating and relationship coach at LoveLifeTBD.com, tells Bustle. “While the fire won’t always burn as strong as it did in the beginning of your relationship, it doesn’t have to dim either." And one of the best ways to keep that fire going is to keep mixing things up in the bedroom.

It's way too easy to fall back on our same old sex routines — to have sex less and less and, when you do have it, always having it in exactly the same way. A change in location or a new position can be enough to jolt you out of a rut. So if you feel like the fire is fading, here are seven sex positions that can help you get your sex life back on track.


Sideways Straddle

Sideways Straddle

How To Do It: Don't be afraid to use lube. With your partner laying on their back, straddle one of their legs while facing away from them. Slowly lower down and guide them inside of you. Don't worry if it takes a couple of tries, it's a tricky one at first.

Why It Works: This position almost definitely isn't in your normal repertoire. Because it's unusual, you need to really focus and connect. Plus, they get a great view and you get the G-spot stimulation.
