Sex is awesome no matter where you have it. But there’s one location that apparently has a special place in our hearts.
A new poll found that “tabletop” sex—where you sit on a table and your man stands in front of you—was the position women most wanted to try.
Makes sense, says sex therapist Dr Ian Kerner. It’s primal and offers “easy clitoral stimulation.”
Check out these 14 fun facts about your orgasm:
But, not to be a mood killer, how practical is it? To find out the best kinds of tables to have sex on, we talked to carpenter and general contractor Pat Liska of Liska Construction in Verona, New Jersey. Here’s she gives us the blueprint of what you should look for in a sex-worthy table.
1. Height: The table should hit your guy at waist level, so your best bet is a kitchen table (75 centimetres is standard). If he’s on the short side, try a desk (usually a scooch lower at 70 centimetres). Opt for one that’s flush against a wall.
2. Surface materials: Glass can be too slippery. And try to avoid cheaper tables you’ve assembled yourself—they’re usually made of flimsy particleboard, and the hollowness can make awkward creaking sounds.
3. Legs: Thrust on skinny or tapered ones and screws could loosen. (And collapse. Not the climax you’re after!)
