We'll be the first to admit that the words "sex" and "hack" generally shouldn't fall within the same sentence, but this is the internet in 2016 and even the kindest phrase can be taken the wrong way and made into something horrific. That being said, let's talk about sex. If you think you're an expert and have mastered every method of intercourse, you're wrong.
Dead wrong! For every move you're doing right, there are a dozen more that can be improved on; that's where we come in.
Here are some basic (and not-so-basic) ways to improve your time in bed without breaking your back, breaking the bank, or breaking the bank with your back.
Use lube for anal and vaginal sex
Far too many people out there think of lube as a tool that only the world's most elite group of sex maniacs use, when -- in fact -- the truth is quite opposite. Everybody should be using lube for everything, even if you think you don't need it. That goes double for anal -- you're going to want to use more lube than you think necessary… just remember to bring a towel.
Also, don't let a lack of K-Y Jelly ruin your party -- there are plenty of household items that can be MacGyver'd into lube... like yogurt. Weird, right?
Try wearing socks to enhance your orgasm
Dead serious. Believe me, this goes against everything I've ever believed in -- but a Dutch study once concluded that 80% of women wearing socks were able to achieve an orgasm. Why couldn't those women finish up in a sockless state? Apparently because of cold feet. We're not saying you should stop boning halfway through and rummage through your dresser, but it's certainly something worth exploring.
Don't stick anything in your butt that doesn't have a flared bottom
Because it's going to get stuck and a team of highly trained doctors are going to have to remove it while stifling their laughter. So, treat the brown oval with the respect it deserves.
Aim for the G-spot during missionary sex
Yeah, for real; this is one of those Cosmo tips that's actually based in fact. You gotta nail the G-spot. Whether it's by aiming upward during missionary or by simply putting a pillow underneath her lower back, reaching the G-spot is the equivalent to finding the arch of the covenant… except the night won't end with any Nazis' faces melting off.
Consult your penis before any big life decisions
Masturbation relieves stress, soothes headaches, and is really just a fun way to clear your head. If you're faced with a huge decision -- especially one that's particularly sexy -- just take a moment to rub one out. Everyone does it... even monkeys, the OG humans.
Enhance your size by shaving your pubes
It easily adds an inch to your dick… which is good for your confidence. Of course, you should only do it if you really want to -- never let anyone pressure you into shaving.
When a lady is close to finishing... let it happen
Don't go rogue and just try to maintain a steady rhythm until she climaxes. Sex involves more than one person, remember? Don't try anything fancy at the last minute and certainly don't try that special move you saw in that one porno, just stay the course and go the distance.
Use sex toys by yourself and with your partner
You get a toy! You get a toy! Everybody gets a toy! Whether it's a Fleshlight, double-sided dildo, or remote-controlled vibrator, there's a toy out there for everyone. They're fun to use in private and also a blast to experiment with in the bedroom. Pro tip: buy your partner a toy and ask them to use it on you -- it'll spice things up faster than you can say: "That's a spicy meatball!"
Figure out how to easily remove her bra
I don't know who invented the bra clasp, but damn them for creating the most confounding and complicated device know to man. Though it may seem completely impenetrable, there's actually a rather foolproof method of unhooking a bra in one easy motion. This AskMen article makes it sound shockingly easy: "Using your thumb and first two fingers, gently pinch the bra straps material on either side of the clasp and then squeeze them together to release the hooks."
