Best Pregnancy Sex Positions for Hot Sex Every Trimester

Pregnancy is hot as hell, and sexually can be a lot of fun. It can be nervewracking for some people exploring sex as their bodies change, knowing what’s safe for the baby, comfortable, and more importantly, what feels good. We at afterglow want you to get fucked in hot and safe ways that satiate any horny pregnancy cravings. 

Obviously, listen to your doctor if you have any specific complications with your pregnancy that may impact your ability to do certain sexual positions (or have sex in general). However, we have listed some amazing pregnancy sex positions that we think will be best for our audience at afterglow. 

Non-Penetrative Sex

 

Oral Sex

This one may seem obvious but shouldn’t be discounted as an important and necessary option! Oral isn’t for everyone but for those that enjoy getting ate out, that shouldn’t have to change just because you’re pregnant. It should be noted that with hormones that sometimes people who eat out pregnant partners notice a change in taste, this is due to hormones and is completely normal. There are various positions one can go down in, pregnancy does impact what options work best of course! 69ing is still possible when approached from a side angle, for example, and of course there’s always the classic receiver sitting in a chair, with the giver on their knees in front or the receiver laying down on a bed with the giver on lower on the bed.

 

Toys 

Toys are so fun and hot, and your pregnancy is the perfect time to experiment with them. Oral sex is a great foreplay into toy play, first going down on the partner and then incorporating vibrators, especially clitoral can be a game changer. Toys such as the Melt by WeVibe can be awesome for oral sex because you can direct the toy from above the clit while still using fingers and tongue on your partner. Of course, make sure you’re using sex toys that are of high quality, especially if using an internal sex toy. It’s important to pay attention to what feels good here, if something causes any pain, it’s important to stop. The mucus plug protects the baby; however, toys are obviously harder material than penises typically, so important to feel it out and stop if it begins to feel uncomfortable. There are many toys that are great for pregnant sex.

 

Penetrative Sex

 

Doggy Style

Honestly, an all-time favorite position for many doggy style is great for people who are pregnant because it allows, when on all fours, the belly space while still allowing for sensual to rough sex. Of course, it’s always important to be direct with your partner if  discomfort occurs but doggy style is as fun pregnant as it is when you’re not. 

 

Spooning 

Sex on your side can be a great position for penetrative sex, not only is it hot to hold your partner (or be held) but no one said you have to be directly spooning. If spooning sex typically doesn’t work for you, try instead of being in a typical spooning position to move down the pregnant partner’s body until you’re able to penetrate and hold wherever you end up. It’s a great excuse to appreciate and love all parts of their body and make them feel sexy because they are. 

 

Scissoring

Scissoring is ambidextrous in that it can be both penetrative (strap-on is always a good option) and non-penetrative, so we love it. It’s hot because you can look directly at your partner and either rub against one each other, or you can penetrate your partner with one of your legs over theirs, one of your legs under theirs, holding hands and looking them in the eyes, fuck them like that. Make them feel desired. This allows space for the belly to be up in the air and comfortable too. 

 

The Tabletop

Fucking on the edge is fun to begin with, but when comfort is key and it can be nice to lay on back it can be super hot to have the partner who is penetrating be on the side of the bed with the pregnant partner’s ass on the side. This allows for the legs to be lifted easily (or spread to the side) and to get off without putting the carrying partner’s belly in an uncomfortable position. Of course, this can be done with any type of dick, whether plastic or flesh. It’s also a position that can be used for fingering, licking, and sucking. In general, the better the view, the easier the screw. 

 

There’s always on top

This can be nice in the early trimesters, getting on top (in the various positions from cowgirl to reverse to anything you can comfortably perform and set your mind to) can add layers of control to how deep one is penetrated and the rate of speed. This is super important when exploring sex as your body changes.

Squiggle divider

Pregnancy is not the end of fun sex! There are so many ways to be comfortable, get off, and be safe! With these hot positions, you should be able to not only keep satisfying your partner throughout the pregnancy but can incorporate them into your non-pregnant routine as well. As always, listening to the desires, bodily and vocal reactions of a partner is important, but especially so while pregnant. With care and desire, hot sex while pregnant isn’t just a possibility but an inevitability.
