Get festively stuffed (Picture: Metro.co.uk)
Look, we’re not saying that for the entire month of December, any sex you have must be festively themed.
And let’s be real – it’s nice to have a reason to try something a bit different.
You don’t even need to don Santa hats (unless you want to).
Here are some sex positions to make the most of this very special time.
Rocking around (the Christmas tree)
Cute and cosy (Picture: Ann Summers)
For maximum festive feels, we strongly recommend doing this on the floor, perhaps by a fireplace, or even by the decked-out tree.
One person sits on the floor with their legs stretched in front of them. The other sits on top, facing their partner and wrapping their legs around them.
Try more of a rocking motion rather than bouncing or thrusting, looking into each other’s eyes to up the intensity.

This is a great one for when you’re all tuckered out after Christmas feasting and need a lazy sex position that still jingles those bells.
One partner lies on their back, with their bum facing towards the pentrating partner and knees bent and thrown over their partner’s thighs.
The other lies on their side with both legs bent and slightly apart, so they can thrust at a leisurely pace.
Hands are free to add in some additional stimulation.
Lovehoney sex expert Oloni says: ‘If you have the energy, try a seated version with him sitting on the edge of a bed for deeper penetration and increased intimacy.’
Okay, this one’s a bit more advanced (Picture: Ann Summers)
A major upgrade to your usual oral, this one is only for advanced sex-ers.
‘Get the ultimate head rush while you receive some insanely good head,’ say the Ann Summers team. ‘Support your weight by resting your thighs on your partner’s shoulders and have them hold onto your waist.
‘Still need a little more stability? Reach out and put your hands on the floor – hand standing for head!
‘Being upside down means that your blood rushes to your head, giving you a dizzying excuse to get lost in the moment and focus entirely on pleasure.
‘This new position will open up your airways and allow you to fulfil every deep-throat desire whilst being on the receiving end of some seriously good oral. Add some sensational slip with flavoured lube and get ready to orgasm from a whole new perspective.’
Don’t worry if this seems absolutely mad – you can always opt for a lying-down version instead, as a side-by-side 69.

Spooning, but Santa-fied (Picture: Ann Summers)
Yes, this is basically just spooning, but let’s give it a cutesy name to ensure that festive glow.
‘The side-saddle position allows you to grind, wind and wiggle your way to mind blowing orgasms; ensuring intense G-spot stimulation,’ say the Ann Summers sexperts. ‘Make sure to arch your back until they hit the spot and move your hips in small circles.
‘Alternately, if speed is the way to your satisfaction, this position allows you to both join in on the thrusting action.
‘Push back against him for fast paced, deep penetration designed to get you both off in seconds.
‘For super intense results, add a bullet to experience blended orgasms.
‘Want to kick it up a notch? This is the perfect position for exploring anal. Add plenty of lube and control the depth and pace yourself.’
Tingle all the way

Ideal for a holiday quickie, the tingle all the way is all about the views.
One person sits on the bed or floor with their hands behind their back for balance and support, and their legs slightly bent and crossed at the ankles to form a triangle shape.
The other sits on top, facing their partner, then leans back with arms stretched out behind and legs bent, with feet resting on their partner’s shoulders.
‘Because you are both seated, movement is kept to a minimum so it is a great position if you fancy a quickie and don’t want to make a lot of noise,’ says Oloni.
Good old festive stuffing
An intimate take on rear entry (Picture: Ann Summers)
Another minimal-effort one, providing direct G-spot stimulation.
Lying down, have your partner enter you from behind. For maximum pleasure, place a pillow beneath your hips – the change in angle means you’ll receive more intense G-spot stimulation.
For a more intense session, encourage your partner to rest his chest against your back.
You can also add a vibrator for extra sensation.
Riding Santa’s sleigh
Give doggie a reindeer twist (Picture: Ann Summers)
We all like a bit of doggie, right?
How about some reindeer games?
One person gets on all fours. Rather than sitting behind, the other gets on top, with the legs either side and feet on the floor (or bed), penetrating from behind while resting a hand on their partner’s shoulder.
Flexible? Try this (Picture: Ann Summers)
Another rear entry twist, this one doubles as a good stretch.
Get on all four as usual for doggie style, but bend one leg up (yep, backwards) and against your partner as they thrust while on their knees.
Requires some flexibility, yes, but ensures deep penetration that’ll leave you red-faced (not just nosed) and very, very merry.
