The Best Sex Positions for Back Pain So You Can Have Amazing Sex Whenever You Want (Even If You Think Sex Seems “Impossible” Right Now)…
Did you know that back pain is one of the leading causes for missing work?
And in fact, experts say that 80% of people will feel back pain at some point in their lives?
So if you have back pain, and it's putting a literal cramp in your sex life–just know that you're not alone.
But what can you do about it?
Well, there's medication for that–but in the heat of the moment, that isn't always going to help.
So we scoured the internet, and our team of experts, for the best tips & tricks to ease back pain during sex…
And here are the best 5 we could find:
1) Try This Pain-Relieving Position
Get ready to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride… because that's exactly what you'll get to do here!
If you have back pain, sometimes it can be relieving to lie back.
So that's why girl-on-top is a perfect pain-relieving position.
If you aren't already familiar with this position, all you have to do is lay down and have her straddle you–she can control the movement, so you don't have to work any of your back muscles at all if you don't want to.
Plus, this position makes it more likely that she'll have an orgasm. 😉
And of course, it'll feel great for you too!
But if laying down doesn't relieve enough of your back pain… then just try this next trick:
2) Use Support
If you still feel back pain when you lie down, then try supporting your back with soft items.
You can use pillows…
There are even specialized body pillows designed to relieve pain and make you more comfortable!
I know it might not sound super “sexy,” but you can keep them by the bed for easy grabbing if things get too caught up in the moment.
Plus, it's a lot sexier than having sex with back pain, right?
3) What To Do When You’re On Top
Sometimes, the woman you're with might reeeeally want you to be on top. Or perhaps it's your personal preference in bed.
If that's the case, just make sure to keep your upper body supported with both of your hands evenly below your shoulders (that is if you're doing missionary-style sex).
This way, you distribute your weight evenly throughout your back and won't put too much of a strain on your muscles.
It might also help to have the woman you're with lift up her hips and gyrate during the deed.
That way, you don't have to do as much work, and you can get deeper inside her more easily as well.
4) Prepare Your Muscles
If you're particularly concerned about your back acting up on a night when sex is on the table, here's one of the best things you can possibly do:
It takes less than 5 minutes, and it'll help you gain more body awareness and realize what's going to feel best once you're in bed with this girl.
Here are some basic go-to stretches you can try before you meet up with her:
Lie down, and hug one knee to your chest–then the other. This stretches your lower back and upper glutes without putting too much of a strain on your muscles.
If you can handle a little bending, you can also do “cat/cow” stretches.
To do this, place both your palms on the floor below your shoulders, and place your knees on the ground below your hips.
Then tuck your toes, drop your belly and look as far up as you can. This is a great stretch for your spine–but wait, you're not done yet!
Once you do this, untuck your toes, then arch your back and look toward your stomach (sort of like a cat).
This helps to stretch all of your vertebrae in a way that most people don't get to do in their day-to-day life. And it can be a great way to relieve back pain prior to sex. 😉
Which brings me to my final tip to have amazing sex, even if you have debilitating back pain — and it's a good one:
5) The Fastest Way to Give a Woman Multiple Orgasms (From ANY Position)…
Even if your back pain makes sex seem impossible… there’s still a way you can give a woman multiple orgasms very fast.
It’s a fingering move… BUT… it goes way beyond “stick 2 fingers in her and make a ‘come hither’ motion.”
It’s called 5-Finger Tantra, and here’s how it works:
Get into the position that feels most comfortable for you (sitting up, laying down, on your side, whatever)…
… and then position your fingers like this inside of her.
This will already make her feel very, very good (trust me, I’m a girl, I would know lol)…
… which is why you only have to move your fingers a little bit to take her over the edge, and give her waves of EXPLOSIVE orgasms… usually in less than 45 seconds.
(Plus, if you do it right, chances are she’ll want to return the favor with some oral! ;-))
I’ll admit the motion is a little hard to describe though…
