Old School Sex Advice You Should Follow

Sometimes you will look back on vintage sex advice and find yourself cringing. A lot of it tells us that “the man should always be dominant”, that “sex should be silent”, and that more than twice a week is just completely wrong. It puts you off looking at old school sex advice completely, because it cannot be right, can it?

Well here on Escort Ireland we have looked through the thousands of vintage sex tips to find the ones that could actually still work for you… if you know how to twist them for your enjoyment. Take a look at the tips and let us know which is your favourite.

No hands!

Many of the sex tips that you will find will leave you angry, and this is one that has pissed off a lot of people. They read it and, understandably, get frustrated of the way men and woman are spoken about in it.

According to the School of Venus back in 1680, handjobs are a big no-no. The advice states that “I would have no woman tantalize a man with her hand, since she hath a more proper place to receive and bestow his instrument.”

Basically, this advice tells us that hands should not be used to help during sex, as it should simply be the dick in the pussy. Of course, while this advice is directly specifically at the women who were a part of this school, it can be twisted to something a little more fun.

Try to have sex hands-free. Men out there should try oral sex without using their hands. Far too often, guys will ram their fingers into the woman’s pussy as quickly as possible, as though that will make her come. Instead, work on what your tongue is doing. Tease her and see how close you can get her to the edge with just your tongue.

Your lips are also a great tool to use, especially if you have your partner before you and naked on the bed. Slowly kiss your way down their body, keeping your hands to yourself, and you will find that you want sex even sooner than usual. The urge to touch them will be great and you can’t wait to fuck them passionately. See how long you both can last before you touch them.

Dirty talk is good

Cosmopolitan magazine has, for many years, been insisting that it is a great sex guide to use. However, some of the tips aren’t the greatest. In fact, there are some that tell you the best way to give a handjob is to treat his cock like a joystick and wiggle it every way that you can… which will not only be completely unsexy, but probably also painful!

However, there are some hidden gems that you can find out there. This one comes from the 1980s, and says that “the most crucial aspect of sex is talking! Do you crave intercourse, or cuddling? Are you satisfied after one or two orgasms – or do you want more?”

For a start, this piece of advice point blank tells you to talk about sex with your partner. No-one is a mind-reader, especially in bed, and if you aren’t 100% happy with how things have worked out, you need to tell them so that you can come up with some ways to make your sex life even better. They aren’t going to instantly know that you prefer to fuck in doggy style unless you tell them.

Coming straight out and saying “I want to fuck you from behind” can be really tough for some people. The idea of talking about sex and what you want in the bedroom is a pretty scary one, so a great alternative is to stick to dirty talk. Instead of being demanding, you can instead say things like “your ass is so hot. I love to watch it when we are in doggy style”. This lets them know what you want in a more subtle way than outright telling them, and letting them know you love their body will make them want to do it even more.

Don’t have sex for the sake of sex

This is my favourite piece of advice and will no doubt be one that splits the room. From Cosmopolitan in 1983, they tell us why you shouldn’t simply be having sex for the sake of sex. “Unless you feel an overwhelming urge to jump on someone – say no. Avoid mercy-fucking as he’ll probably come back for more. Never feel obliged. Sex is no way to say ‘goodnight’ or ‘thanks’.”

It sounds pretty harsh, but they are making it clear that you shouldn’t just be having sex because it is getting late and you think it is the right thing to do. If you aren’t totally in the mood, say no and wait for when you are. It will make it even more intense and passionate, which is exactly what you want sex to be. You should never half-arse sex.

However, you might not be free to see your hot and sexy other half whenever the urge does strike you, so you should instead do things to get you in the mood. Start foreplay and take your time about it. Really tease your partner and drive them wild with light kisses all over their body, and stroke them gently with your hands everywhere you can. Seeing them get turned on will probably put you in the mood, and the slow tease that you have done can make it even more intense.

What is the worst piece of vintage sex advice that you have read, or do you think it is all pretty terrible? Is there some advice that you feel we should share with the world? Let us know in the comments below or by heading to the Escort Ireland forum and joining in the discussions over there.
