Yet another lesson in the wonders of the sexiest organ of all, the brain.

We here at SWE love variety; it’s the spice of your sex life! We’re all about mixing it up, trying new positions, products, toys and perspectives. There’s a reason so many of you write and ask Emily about inviting a third into your bedroom; you’re tired of your routine sex and ready to mix things up!
But we also know that there’s a place for the tried-and-true type of sex. Finding those positions that you know are going to work, that are physically comfortable and get the job done for everyone. And it’s true what they say: once you’ve mastered the basics of anything, you’re better prepared to master the more advanced techniques.
Which came first: the chicken or the egg?
Most of us can agree it’s pretty hard to decide, but when it comes to sex and relationships we can find ourselves asking the very same question. Or a variation of it, anyway.
In the sometimes testy trials of sexpectation versus reality, it goes without saying there are countless factors at play.
From comfort and connection to chemistry and more, each of these elements pour into the grand-ultimate component of all— satisfaction.
