Has your love life gone from sizzle to fizzle? You don’t have to memorize the Kama Sutra to spice things up between the sheets.

To reap similar benefits, perform the 10 poses below at least three times a week, spending a minute or so in each position.

Start off with the female placing her feet on the base of the chair. She should then place her hands on the ground for support. The male then straddles her body and brings her body close to align with her vagina.
Sex position degree of difficulty: Intermediate to advanced.
Male should sit on chair with shoulders against the back and butt on end of base. Female can then climb on top and lift both legs onto his shoulders and rest both of her hands on his knees and lean back.
Sex position degree of difficulty: Extremely advanced!
Male length helps, but can be used for stimulation when penetration isn’t possible. The man lies against the chair with his bottom toward end of base. He lifts his legs as she approaches and enters her.
Male should start with his back leaning against the chair. Female should back up until she feels his penis. From here, the male spreads his legs and guides her in and she can reach behind to align perfectly.
