You’ve come to the right place! At V for Vibes, we believe in making empowered choices and helping others make empowered choices, which is why we’ve put together this blog to tell you everything you need to know about yoga ball sex. We’ve got it all covered, from the benefits of yoga ball sex to the positions you can try it in, so keep reading on.
First thing’s first, you need to get your hands on a yoga ball if you’re going to give yoga ball sex a shot. Grab that old yoga ball lying around in the storage somewhere and put it to good use. That’s right; you can do so many things with a yoga ball with a little bit of creativity and some passion. Along with the new and exciting feeling of doing something out of the ordinary, it can have several benefits, too, including health and mental wellness. Here are some of the reasons you should probably give yoga ball sex a shot– you might have just found your new favorite thing.
You can get some exercise in!
While being incredibly fun to try out, yoga ball sex can also be one of the creative ways you can sneak a little workout in. It can help get your heart racing and make you feel good about yourself; you can enjoy the process and give your muscles the movement you need. Remember that your body does require movement every now and then, and the occasional yoga ball sex might just be your favorite new way of working out while scoring some snuggles later. This can be incredible not just because of the physical wellbeing it comes with, but it can also lead to emotional and mental wellbeing at the same time.
Work out that core.
The workout we just mentioned? You’re not only going to feel it, but you’ll start seeing it soon. A good workout can also be really beneficial for your skin. In fact, with an increased blood flow to the capillaries under your skin, your skin is able to get rid of toxins and junk that can usually get caught in pores and under the layers of skin cells. Yoga ball sex can lead to greater core strength along with greater flexibility and a higher endurance level in your body – the effects are felt tangibly and physically, too! Glowing skin, a tight core, and a fitness routine that promises pleasure? That sounds like a win to us!
Strengthen your Relationship
This can sound a bit odd, but take our word for it. Relationship experts suggest that couples who engage in deep commitment to growing more intimate in all the different types of intimacy are couples who are more likely to have fulfilling relationships. If you’re looking to learn more about the different types of intimacy you can develop with your partner, give this article a read! This kind of intimacy presented by yoga ball sex can be quite interesting when thought of as ‘experiential intimacy’.
Experiential intimacy is the deep connection you feel with your partner when you experience moments of intense emotions with each other – these can be events on a smaller everyday scale or a life-changing one. Yoga ball sex can be one of those new experiences you and your partner share, and give yourselves the opportunities to create new memories with each other!
Give yoga ball sex a shot if you’re looking to delve deeper into your sexual relationship with your partner and find newer ways of connecting with them.
Catch a Good Night’s Sleep
In addition to several reasons you should already be halfway to your yoga ball, yoga ball sex can also help you sleep better! Of course, when you’re working out all of your core and arm muscles (and let’s be honest, a little bit of everything, really), you will feel the urge to let your body rest much more potently than you would otherwise. But it’s not just that! Yoga ball sex can also help you feel a lot more relaxed and calmer, allowing you to just kick back and call it a night after building up the tension up till the final release. Nothing helps your muscles unwind as a good orgasm can, so what are you waiting for? Go get that Big O!
Get those Hormones to Feel Good
Apart from how relaxed and calm yoga ball sex can make you feel after, it can also aid in combating low moods. When the human brain senses pleasure in the body, chemicals called endorphins and serotonin are released, which are really “feel good” hormones. They’re responsible for giving you the feeling of joy and the bodily sensation of happiness, and what’s a better mood booster than good sex?
Allowing your body to release those feel-good hormones can be a great pick-me-up in your day and can elevate your mood. Yoga ball sex can lead to increased levels of self-esteem, as well, resulting from the new relationship you can develop with your own body with unique experiences that you have never felt before.
Here are some positions you can try out with your partner if you’re interested in giving yoga ball sex a shot! Feel free to add your own twists to these positions to make them fully yours and let yourself feel fully empowered with the choices you make, and the new experiences you have – variations can keep things interesting and add spice to your sex life. After that list of benefits, we won’t blame you if you’re rushing to it already, so let’s get right to it.
Yoga Ball Sex Positions
Give Reverse Cowgirl a Shot
Allow the yoga ball to rest on a flat surface that is stable like the ground. Ask your partner to get seated comfortably, preferably with back support. Perhaps give it a shot against the wall! Ask your partner to sit back and get on top, facing away from your partner to really give them a great view.
If you two are into exhibitionism or voyeurism, this could be your new favorite way of trying out fun positions; take it to the next level by adding some variation. Find a safe spot for exhibitionism and give in to your desires near a window or in a safe public spot to really elevate the experience!
This is definitely one of the classics, a go-to yoga ball sex position for a lot of people having yoga ball sex out there. And we can see why! It’s the perfect arrangement to bend over the yoga ball and allow your partner access from behind, giving you enough room to be stable and comfortable while leaning on the yoga ball! Take this to the next level by giving anal sex a shot if you and your partner are both interested in the idea and experience the sensations together.
Lie Back and Give your Partner the Reigns
Here’s a bonus tip we’ve added to this list for you: sometimes less is more! When it comes to the control in yoga ball sex, take the backseat from time to time and let your partner direct the course of yoga ball sex to fully enjoy the pleasure you can find in new ways of having sex.
