Can You Learn Better Sex From a Video?

WebMD Feature from "Redbook" Magazine

By Lindsey Palmer

Redbook Magazine Logo Sure, those how-to sex videos with the soft-focus ads seem a little embarrassing, but some are based on legitimate research and have great ideas. We watched the "Better Sex Video Series: Sexplorations" tapes with pen and paper in hand—so you won't have to (although you might like 'em!). Here, the best take-away tips.

Spice it up with a sex sandwich

Use the Sandwich Method for easing new moves into your sex life: Start off with the things you already know and like—the bread. Then add something new and different—the filling. End with the bread again. If you wind up liking the new thing, keep it as a regular filling; if you don't, just switch in a new filling.

Help each other help yourselves

Mutual masturbation, in which both partners help themselves to pleasure while together, can be a great way for you to learn different ways to turn each other on. Notice what your partner does when he touches himself, and show him what you enjoy, too!

Up the "Oh, my!" factor

These sex positions keep the clitoris exposed, allowing for increased stimulation for you, as long as you encourage him to use his hands.

Half-pressed: He kneels between your legs while you push one bent leg against his chest, and rest the other leg straight out alongside him.

Pair of Tongs: He lies on his back and you straddle him facing his feet. He can easily reach around for some hands-on clitoris action.

Man Upright: He sits on top of you while you lie on your back.
