You know what’s fun? Sex. You know what’s even more fun than sex? Well, okay, nothing. But yoga practices that can enhance your experience as a top or bottom should at least put a smile on your face. Better sex? Yes, please.
Health blogger Barry Eichner has most generously taken his time to do some research, find a couple of cute boys, and then take pictures of them posed in the yoga positions he found most suitable to enhance sex as either a top or a bottom. (The links are in the following two paragraphs. You’re welcome.)
For bottoms, he provides five yoga poses to “open up your body” (*snicker*) and help keep “leg cramps, numb thighs, and a sore back” at bay. To enhance sex in classic bottom stances, Eichner incorporates yoga positions that best meld with the bottom mantra: arch your back, open your hips, calm the fuck down. To those of you who actually know your yoga, Eichner highly recommends the Ananda Balasana/Happy Baby, the Malasana/Yoga Squat, the Bitilasana/Cow Pose, the Prasarita Padottanasana/Wide-Legged Forward Fold, and the Upavistha Konasana B/Wide Leg Stretch.
For tops, the desire for a good performance can be even more stressful. That alone deserves some poses to enhance the sexual experience, though “build[ing] your strength, flexibility, and endurance” I guess helps, too. To do this, Eichner suggests the Anjaneyasna/Crescent Lunge, the Chaturanga/Low Push Up, the Ustrasana/Camel, the Purvottanasana/Upward Plank, and the Virabhadrasana II/Warrior II. With these five poses, Eichner provides ways for tops to improve their thrusting, increase their oxygen intake, and build the muscles of their arms. Because nobody wants a top who tires out too early. You don’t want to tire out too early, do you? Do you?
Personally, I tried some of Eichner’s suggested poses (no, I’m not telling you which ones) and pretty much kept falling over. I don’t exactly have the coordination for yoga, but I do have an interest in enhancing my sex life. So I simply met fate in the middle and gazed at the photographs for a long, long time.
Who says learning can’t be fun?
