While some may think the key to great sex is complicated pretzel-like positions, some less-confident people tend to shy away from bold movements in the bedroom.

Ultimately sex is about love and intimacy, so while sex positions are part of the fun, the real pay-off is being able to be comfortable and fully connected with your partner.

When it comes to spicing things up in the bedroom; if you tend to be a bit bashful between the sheets, here are 5 creative sex positions that are perfect for you.

Comfy Missionary

If you're feeling a little shy and don't want all of the attention focused on you, but still want to reach optimum pleasure, then this classic sex position is the one for you. This position allows you and your partner to embrace each other without all the hassle. The female should lay on her back as the man climbs on top of her. As you both move to your own pace, you can create the perfect thrilling sensations, especially if you use some extra help in the form of our Naturals Intimate Gel. For an even stronger sensation, have you and your partner change the angles of your legs while maintaining a deep connection by looking into each others eyes.


Create more intimacy with your partner in this cosy position. Have both of you lie on your sides, facing the same direction. Bring your knees up slightly as your partner slides up behind you and enters you from behind. For the ultimate heightened sensation, try the Durex Intense Orgasmic Gel and enjoy the skin-to-skin contact and increased stimulation you’ll both crave.

Reverse Spoon

Experience the added benefit of gazing into your partners eyes with the full-body connection you desire. Similar to ‘Side by Side’, the female should lay on her side with her knees bent and folded in towards her chest. Then the man can lay on his side behind her, but in a position where his feet are now behind her head. This allows you both to try something a little different without going too extreme. You can still see each others faces and enjoy the moment.

Face Off

For an intimate long session, have the female sit on a sturdy chair or the edge of a bed. To begin, have her climb on top of the male facing towards him, and let her wrap her arms and legs around his waist. Once saddled, she should lower herself onto the male and move up and down by pressing his sides with her legs or knees. This sex position is perfect for those who are shy but wanting to have a fun experience without all the complicated moves. If you start to feel a bit more confident, you could use a cheeky flavoured lube and enjoy intervals of oral sex play.

Reverse Cowgirl

Being on top may make the one on top feel a little self-conscious, however, this position gives you and your partner the best of both worlds. It allows the female the chance to take the lead, while putting the one underneath in control. The woman mounts the man whilst facing away. As the male enters her, he should move his body at his own pace and create an intensely sensual experience the both of you would enjoy.

These sex positions are sure to make the most sheepish of people feeling super confident! In no time, you will be wanting to try new things in the bedroom and maybe even want to introduce sex toys. You can be sure of a comfortable and pleasurable experience for both you and your lover - no matter how shy you are.
