Wait, Spelling “Coconut” With Your Hips During Cowgirl Sex Is Actually Genius
BUT WHY IS THIS SUCH A THING, YOU MIGHT ASK?
hile you may think this is just some funny Twitter joke that’s eventually going to be replaced by some other viral tweet in a few days, this tip is actually extremely beneficial for literally everyone. For starters, “coconut” is pretty easy to remember (and spell). But using your hips to spell out the word when you’re on top requires a certain pattern of movement that will feel good. “The more motion you work into on-top intercourse, the more complexity you stimulate for yourself and your partner,” explains Good Vibrations’ resident sexologist, Carol Queen, PhD.
Another perk: “Having a word to spell might take your attention away from less sexy feelings like, ‘I’m not sure what to do’ or ‘I feel exposed and nervous,’” says Queen. Working those hips toward a goal gives your mind something to think about so it doesn’t fixate on any worries or in-the-moment stressors (and FWIW, no, he can’t tell you ate Little Caesars last night).
OKAY, BUT CAN I CHOOSE A WORD OTHER THAN “COCONUT”?
Girl, of course you can! Literally, the sky is the limit. Think about how many words exist. If you don’t want to spell out “coconut” with your hips while riding your guy, you can choose any of your fave fruits, veggies, or…television shows?
“Any fairly long word will involve plenty of hip movement, changes in direction, and round and up-and-down movements to stimulate a lot of pleasure,” says Queen. “Even just the letter ‘Z’ has three changes of direction. So if you find a word you like better—go for it.”
TBH, the person who came up with this is a GD genius and gets a gold star. This is one small—but major—tip for making your own orgasms happen.
