Exhausted your usual bedroom routine and struggling to keep things exciting?

Mixing things up a bit in terms of where you are having sex in the house could be the perfect antidote to bedroom fatigue. Whether that be getting kinky in the kitchen or saucy on the stairs, a change of scenery can really do the trick.

Here are 5 places to have sex in the home outside the bedroom.

Sex in the bath

Get the atmosphere right and the bathroom can be an incredibly romantic location. Perhaps your partner has had a hard day of work, or maybe they’re simply feeling a little low and down in the dumps. Run them a candle lit bath with a bottle of wine to hand and they’re certain to thank you.

Sex in the bath can be tricky, but it can also be extremely sensuous and exciting. Sure, you’ll probably need to factor in a bit of clean up time after the event. If things get really raunchy, it is unlikely all the bath water will remain in the tub.

Positions that are great for the bath sex, provided your bath is big enough, include doggy style, cowgirl and reverse cowgirl. Want more bathroom sex ideas? Check out our dos and don'ts of shower sex.

Sex on the sofa

If you’re a little intimidated by the prospect of sex in the bath for your first foray outside the bedroom, then why not try something that offers a bit of variety with little extra effort required.

Bathtub sex may require a little logistical planning and post-sex clean-up, but sofa sex is really very easy to pull off. Simply set a blanket down on the sofa and proceed as you usually would.

The sofa is a great place for sex outside the bedroom as you can achieve several positions fairly easily. As with bathroom sex, you’ll find doggy and the cowgirl variants easy to achieve however, you should also be able to happily get on with some exhilarating 69.

Sex on the stairs

Want to try something a little more advanced? Stair sex may be the answer. Sure, you probably wouldn’t regard it as a conventional place to strip off with your significant other, but you’d be surprised at how much fun it can be.

If you want to play it safe, begin your stair sex session at the bottom of the steps. This way, if you do happen to lose your balance, the floor is only a step or two below you.

Positions you can deploy on the stairs may be a little limited compared to other areas in the house, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun. Why not try warming up with a little bit of bottom step oral? Have your partner sit on the third step and spread their legs. You will find you’re in the perfect position from the bottom step to really treat them.

You could try and up the ante with some cowgirl however, if you are having difficulty working the angles, you may want to try some stimulation with your hands instead. If your partner is a woman, try introducing a bullet vibrator whilst you pleasure her orally. She will almost certainly appreciate the extra stimulation.

Sex on the kitchen counter

If you’re not overly keen on the concept of sex in a food prep area, then some kinky kitchen sex may not be the one for you. Understandably, many of us are rather put off by the idea of getting down and dirty in the same place where you prepare your family meals.

Having sex in the kitchen can be an exciting concept though. You will probably find that you are limited in terms of the positions you can deploy but try having your partner hop up on to the kitchen side and spread their legs. You may find the counter is the perfect height to enter them.

Sex on a table

When thinking of exciting locations for sex outside of the bedroom, the idea of table sex probably doesn’t leap to mind. Sex on the table can actually be a really simple way to mix things up though.

You may find the table top a little hard, so make use of pillows and blankets if necessary. For positions, try bending your partner over the table and entering him or her from behind. The beauty of this is that the table may be the perfect height for standing sex.

Go on, be brave, try out some unusual locations outside the bedroom to spice up your sex life. Just be sure to draw the curtains before you get down to business to avoid giving the neighbours an eyeful!
