When we search for images of sex, nine times out of ten, what comes up? Able bodied, skinny, toned, white or light skinned people. In so much of pornography and the visual sex we consume, it’s about what insane positions can people get into while keeping the friction going.
Most times, plus size bodies are left entirely out of the conversation when talking about sex, and that is discouraging, but exclusionary, and directly shaming of people that are less than the ‘media ideal’.
Here are some plus size sex positions that can help you bring out the inner porn star in the bedroom.

The year 2020 is special. It’s the beginning of a new decade, the year of a presidential election, and of course, it’s a leap year.
In Irish folklore, February 29th is considered to be “Ladies’ Choice Day”. As far as I’m concerned, every day is “Ladies Choice Day”. But it’s still fun idea to celebrate, especially in the bedroom.
It only rolls around once every 4 years. So why not bust out those “once in a blue moon” sex moves for the occasion?
To commemorate this historically rare date, here are 3 fun new Leap Day sex moves to try out. It is ladies’ choice, after all…
Humans are creatures of habit: we fall asleep at night, we wake up in the morning and we have the same kinds of sex. All. The. Damn. Time.
Whether you have a longterm partner, or you’re getting bored with the casual stuff, sex can be like anything else: we tend to find what works and stick with it.
But what if your routine isn’t revving your engine anymore? Here’s how to widen your horizons and get out of your sexual comfort zone.
Right after the New Year’s parties but before all of the President’s Day mattress deals sits the notorious occasion of Valentine’s Day.
A festival of love, affection… And often totally freaking out about what to do, where to go and how to act with one another.
An entire holiday dedicated to love? That’s something we at SWE, can get down with. So here’s a mix of our favorite V-Day-themed blogs and podcasts.
My girlfriend and I have been together for almost two years. We are still very much in love, but our sex life is not exactly what you would call exciting. Ever since we began having sex it has always been missionary, me on top, her on the bottom, and it’s beginning to get a bit old…
I am afraid that due to her inexperience with sex and relationships, (she has never had a serious boyfriend and had quite a few partners) her idea of what sex truly is and what it can be has been ruined. She seems content with just lying there with me on top.
There is nothing more I would love than to share all of my sexual energy with her and have her express her wants and desires so that we can both be together on a much deeper level, but I am afraid to bring it up!
How do I start a conversation like this, and when should I do it?
After being with a few guys, I’ve noticed that it doesn’t matter the size of a guy’s penis or where we’re having sex—whether it be the couch, floor, or bed—but if I’m on top of him, his penis is always slipping out! It’s usually when it’s getting good, and I probably get carried away. But my question is: Am I doing something wrong? And how do I stop it from slipping out?
I recently started seeing a guy, and although his penis is magnificent and huge, it’s an even huger problem. I’m a petite woman, and so far, sex with him has been very painful. I’ve managed to get through it multiple times, but I’m always incredibly sore afterward.
Is there anything I can do to lessen the pain, or is the fact his penis is too big something I’ll have to get used to?
