Ten years ago, the cruise line Royal Caribbean conducted an intimate survey! It revealed that 90% of cruise-goers found having sex to be their top cruise activity!
They also found that 62% of participants had better sex at sea, and 50% said that they’d be ‘hopping to the deed’ within the first six hours of embarkment. 58% of those surveyed said they’re likely to pack teasing lingerie for their trip, and 48% said they’re likely to pack body lotion for their trip!
Now those are some seriously sexy statistics, right? Needless to say, there’s a trend here… people are quite turned on by the idea of getting down at sea! Who would have thought? So, we decided to enlighten you on a few cheeky boat sex positions and some tips to get you started… just in case you were keen to hop-to on your next nautical adventure!
3 Boat Sex Positions for Creating Your Own Motion in the Ocean
Walk the Plank
‘Walk the Plank’ is all about oral sex, and could be one of the most incredible blowjob experiences yet. Have him sit down on one of the boat seats, relaxed, inconspicuous, perhaps with his arms wrapped around the edge of the boat. Then, his partner can kneel down in front of him, making it quite discrete for passerbyers. In this way, it’s not just about getting it on in nature, but also the idea of possibly being seen. The biggest challenge, however, may just be him trying to keep a straight face with limited moans.
If just you and your partner are out at sea alone, why not make the most of the driver’s seat? Have the penetrating partner stand behind the captain and enjoy a little standing razzle dazzle! This could be even more sexy if the captain holds onto the wheel, roaming the seas while feeling all kinds of sensual motions.
If you’re a fan of straddling positions, give the Sailing Straddle a go! Have one partner sit on a seat, against the boat’s edge, legs bent and perhaps leaning back to relax their arms over the side. Then with their legs spread, a partner can sit down and straddle them.
There are actually two ways this could be enjoyed: the easy way and the hard way. The easier would be if the penetrated partner sits directly on top of their partner, straddling them with their knees bent. The more difficult position would be for the one being penetrated to maneuver their body so that their legs are resting on their partner’s shoulders, tilting their pelvis back and forth. The latter will cause a bit of boat rocking, but not so much so that it’ll tip over. Either way, just be cautious.
3 Tips for Successful Boat Sex
Suitable Boat Sex Attire
There are no rules as to what you need to wear for successful boat sex, but some attire may make things a lot easier than others. For example, wearing a full-on outfit that requires you to strip down will take longer, but if you go with outfits such as pants or shorts with a zipper, or a skirt, it’ll be easier to simply take out/reveal the tools you need to make sexy waves. Wearing easy-to-remove swimsuits is a good idea too, or better yet: no clothes at all but rather materials that can be wrapped around the body. Things like beach towels or sarongs are a fun idea because they’re easy to remove and can be put back on quickly and effortlessly. They can also be maneuvered in such a way that most of the body is covered during your tryst.
Watch Out for Splinters
Possibly the unsexiest thing about boat sex… splinters. If the boat you’re rocking has a bit of wear and tear, it’s likely that there will be a few splinters. The best idea would be to inspect the boat before getting it on to find the most suitable and safest spot. Or you could bring some towels or a blanket with you for that added bit of comfort and safety.
The Motion in the Ocean
To add that extra bit of spice to your boating adventure, you could find a spot that allows a few gentle waves to crash over you whilst in-action. Think about how erotic it might be for you to feel the boat rocking a little more because of your intertwined bodies. With waves of pleasure and literal waves from the ocean, you’ll be able to feel a new and exciting kind of sexual excitement and thrill.
Of course, you could adapt or try other positions during your boat sex journey, but this would depend on the size of the boat and whether you’re alone or not. If you do plan on getting hot and heavy at sea though, always be aware of the country’s laws concerning public play as well as the kinds of people who may spot you. Running into these kinds of issues could be quite disastrous for multiple people, so do your research, stay safe, and let the good times roll.
