You're Feeling Romantic

If you're feeling the love, this spider monkey sex move, known as Gift Wrapped, is your best bet for a serious dose of intimacy. Get up close and personal by facing each other side by side and wrapping your arms and legs around him. Then use your legs to pull him extra-close and super-deep. If you want to get really cute, give him a hug for 20 seconds before getting down to business. Hugging each other raises your bodies' oxytocin levels, which boosts your bond and can make sex even more lovey-dovey—in the best possible way.

From this angle, your partner can add in manual stimulation to the front wall of your vagina while applying pressure on your pelvic bone for an even more intense orgasm. Plus, it's not a bad view from up there.

Rock back and forth, then turn the heat up a notch by putting your legs over his shoulders to get to the finish line faster. It's so good to be home.
