I am an adult. Being an adult means doing things like grocery shopping, paying bills, and having the ability to eat dessert for breakfast just because you can. However, I will admit that I am immature at times. Particularly when I hear the number 69.
It’s not big and it’s not clever, but I still giggle over it. That said, I also appreciate how amazing 69 can be. Speaking to friends recently, I discovered that they think it is “crap” and “overrated”. So I thought I’d write about why it should be your new favourite sex position to enjoy.
It takes the pressure off
Sometimes, I feel like I’m under a lot of pressure during sex. During oral in particular, it can sometimes seem like my partner is desperate for me to come. They want to get me to orgasm as quickly as possible, and so I get too focused on my own pleasure instead of simply enjoying it.
Not with 69! In this position, it isn’t all about you. Yes, your partner will be pleasuring you, but you will also be working to make them feel good. You stop worrying about reaching orgasm yourself and just enjoy it.
It feels more exciting
Giving head is something I adore. It is a huge turn on for me and one of my favourite things to do in the bedroom. I also love receiving, but there is something about this position that makes it seem so much more exciting than simply giving oral.
You’re sharing the pleasure together, and the position is hot as hell. Whether you are the one lying down or you are straddling your partner’s face, it is incredibly sexy and thrilling. It seems so much better than just giving or receiving oral!
It tests your concentration
69 can be a lot of fun, especially if you really want to tease your partner and get them to the edge of orgasm. It is particularly useful for vagina-owners, since it often takes us a little longer to get to orgasm. Clitoral stimulation is typically essential to get us over the edge.
During shared oral, it’s another matter entirely. We are concentrating on pleasuring you, but then you are busy pleasuring us. It can make it tough to concentrate. You want to make your partner feel good but suddenly you’re moaning around their member. It’s fun to see if you can distract your partner from their job before they distract you from yours.
69 is really intimate
Oral always feel more intimate, but 69 takes it to a whole new level. You are buried between their legs while they are between yours. I’ve always found that engaging in this act with someone makes me more open to trying tons of new things with them in the future.
