There’s no shame if your exercise ball hasn’t seen any action since Breaking Bad was on the air (hey, you do other abs workouts), but FYI: core exercises aren’t the only way to put that big, bouncy sphere to good use. Turns out, it can also make for a satisfying sex toy.
“A fitness ball has the potential to add some novelty to your sex life, and help you appreciate the humor in sex,” says Ian Kerner, Ph.D., New York City sex therapist and author of She Comes First.
“The bounce can also enhance the natural rhythm of sex, and since you can align your bodies in ways not always possible in a bed, you may have better clitoral and G-spot stimulation,” he says.
These sex-on-a-ball positions can get you off without falling off. No Cirque Du Soleil training necessary.
Have your man sit squarely on top of the ball, with his legs apart so that he feels stable. Then, sit on him like he’s a comfortable chair, with your hands on top of his thighs for support, says Kerner. Ride away!
Ball benefit: This move is great for deep penetration and G-spot stimulation, he says.
BOB AND COME
For this oral sex position, lie on your back, on top of the ball, with your legs spread wide and your hands on the floor for support (if needed), says Kerner. Drape your legs over his shoulders (or put your feet on the floor), while he goes down on you. Have him gently push on the ball in rhythm with his tongue, he says.
Ball benefit: The bounce will give you a steady rhythm of clitoral stimulation, increasing your chances of scoring a mind-blowing O, says Kerner.
Sit on an exercise ball and have him sit on another facing you (if you don’t have two balls, he can sit in a chair), says Kerner, then lean over and give him oral as you bounce.
Ball benefit: The added bouncing while you bob up and down will give him extra friction, he says.
Lie facedown on the ball with your hands on the floor for support (if needed), then have him enter you from behind while he stands or kneels on the ground, says Kerner.
Ball benefit: Kerner says that you’ll reap the rewards of deep penetration and G-spot stimulation with this move.
Have him sit on his ball, says Kerner, and then lie on your back on your ball, facing him (again, use a chair if you don’t have two balls). Connect the balls and drape your legs over his shoulders so he can enter you. Hold onto the back of his legs or put your hands on the floor for support.
Ball benefit: He can easily stimulate your clitoris with his hands, Kerner says.
