3 Best Sex Positions For Back Pain

Talk about a mood killer: Up to 73% of women with lower-back pain report having less sex as a result of their discomfort. Good thing researchers at Waterloo University ID’d the best ache-relieving sex positions to keep the lovin’ alive (no ice packs necessary).

If arching your back or lying on your stomach hurts, try missionary with a pillow under your back so your spine is in as neutral a position as possible.

A general note for all back-pain sufferers (men included): When you’re controlling the motion, use your knees and hips (rather than your spine) to minimize potential discomfort.
