Positions for Overweight People

By big boy music on Jan 12, 2011 at 7:58 AM

Please give some suggestions for sexual positions for 2 married people who are overweight! The missionary position doesn't always work. Doggie style hurts both our knees. She would like deep penetration. I am hanging well but the stomach gets in the way. Please advise if possible!

If you are significantly overweight so that it limits your choices of sexual positions, you can still have deep penetration, but you will have to sacrifice being able to kiss face to face at the same time. If the man is laying on his side, the female partner may lay on her back at a 90 degree angle (or maybe a little more like 110 degrees). She should be on her back and should drape her legs over his hips. This will allow him to penetrate her more easily and also does not strain the knees. Try it out!

Another option is that he stand while she lays on her back on the bed, and lifts her legs up and onto his shoulders. This allows a similar approach to penetration, but is a little more strenuous, and can be affected by the height of your bed. Happy experimenting!

You could also try something called the Liberator. It's a sloped pad that lets you and your partner get those positions that allow for deeper penetration, but with less strain on your body.
