Why Use Mirrors For Sex
In this YouTube video, I talk about the benefits of using mirrors during sex. I think it’s important to incorporate this as part of your sexual repertoire. Not to say that you should do this every time, but make it a regular activity.
The biggest reason I think you should consider mirror sex is that it can help you feel really turned on. Who doesn’t want to feel hotter and more excited when they are making love to their spouse? Later on, I’ll discuss some ideas for those who don’t feel comfortable being naked in front of a mirror. But I want to go over the benefits of mirror gazing sex, positions you can try, and other tips.
Mirror Gazing Helps You Know What it Looks Like to Have Sex
Would you believe that people being intimate in marriage looks nothing like it does on television? What a shocker, right? There is little to nothing about movie sex that is true to life.
While I fast forward through inappropriate scenes as quickly as possible, enough flashes before the screen for me to know it is all wrong. These images and actions can crowd our minds when we visualize sexual intimacy with our spouses.
Getting in front of the mirror with one another can be an eye-opening experience. One that I think you can really learn to enjoy seeing yourself and your spouse making love.
Why You Should Use Mirrors in The Bedroom
Aside from being an eye-opening experience about what it really looks like to be intimate with one another, getting in front of the mirror is great for your sex life. Seeing what is going on has many benefits for you and your spouse. Here are some of the top reasons you should use mirrors.
1. Sex is Visually Stimulating
Men are very visual and enjoy seeing their wives naked. Not only do husbands benefit from seeing their reflection, but so do women. During intercourse or other acts of foreplay, mirrors can help a woman feel more stimulated with sexual desire. Since women have a hard time staying mentally focused during lovemaking, seeing what is going on can really help.
2. Makes You Feel Sexy
Looking at one another in the mirror can do great things for your self-esteem if you let it. While you are looking at yourself and your spouse being intimate, you can get to know the true beauty in the gift God gave you. It is really important that you allow yourself to feel sexy during intimate times. Reflections are really helpful for this.
3. Builds Excitement During Your Encounter
If you allow yourself to feel sexy while you gaze at what is going on, it will build excitement and sexual desire during your encounter. This can serve as a way to make the time feel a lot more fun. When your heart is pumping and your mind is racing, it makes sexual intimacy in marriage a lot better.
4. Gets You Moving And Trying New Sex Positions
There is little to no way to be dormant when you are watching what is going on. Seeing your reflection will get you excited and cause you to desire to do more. You will find that your sense of adventure with one another in the bedroom increases.
5. Gives You Images to Recall Later
Like I said earlier, women have a hard time keeping their minds focused during sex. Having these images stored in your mind gives you something to visualize. I know that if I find my mind wandering to the grocery list, I can just recall things I’ve seen in the mirror.
Where to Hang Mirrors For Sex
I wrote a post on tips for using mirrors in your bedroom and talked about where you can put them in your room. Also, if you don’t have the ability to hang a mirror, you can use a hand-held mirror for oral sex to see what’s going on. Also, you can go to the bathroom or another room that has mirrors you can use.
A few ideas I have for where you can hang a mirror without it looking like a sex mirror:
- Hang a full-length mirror on a door or part of your wall where it can double as a dressing mirror.
- If you have a closet in your room or bathroom, consider sliding mirror closet doors.
- Create a gallery wall with many different-sized mirrors and make sure some are big enough to see what’s going on.
- Get a stand alone full-length mirror that you can more around the room as needed.
These are a few ideas you can try to set up mirrors in your room or bathroom where you can see yourselves having sex or giving each other oral.
Mirror Gazing Sex Positions
Once you have the mirrors in place that you can use, you’ll need to get creative on the positions you try so you can see what’s going on. Here are some ideas to get you started:
This oral sex position is great for a wife to see her husband giving her oral sex. He will lay on the bed and she will spread her legs and back up until her legs are against the bed. She’ll need to squat down enough for him to reach her. In this position, he should be able to see what’s going on somewhat.
In this position, the wife will lay down on the bed, and the husband will enter from behind. She can lay on a vibrator, so she gets the direct clitoral stimulation she needs. Both of them should be able to see what’s going on as long as they have a mirror they can put in front of them. If she can’t pull her legs up to her butt, she can always leave them straight.
This is the perfect mirror gazing sex position because it allows the husband and wife to both see what’s going on. The wife will get on her knees on the edge of the bed and her husband will enter her vagina from behind. She can lead forward to prop herself up on her elbows or lift herself up with her arms.
If you are looking for a standing position that you can do in front of bathroom mirror, this might be a good one. The idea of this mirror gazing sex position is for the wife to create a tunnel with her hand that her husband can thrust through. She will cover her hand with lubrication and her clitoris so that when her husband is sliding through her hand, it rubs against her clit. This can be a good option for couples that have a big height difference…which makes standing sex difficult.
Here is a great oral sex position for a husband to put their wife in. They can stand in front of a long mirror so she can see what he is doing. If you want to be able to see your husband licking your clitoris, you’ll want to stand beside the mirror so you can turn your head and see. Raise the leg that is furthest from the mirror. You should be able to see what he’s doing with this angle.
This is a good blow job position that a wife can put her husband in. Stand next to a mirror in a way where you can see your wife licking your penis. If you want to try a variation to this position, the husband can lean against a wall, spread his legs apart, and lift his pelvis upward. This will provide a different angle for his wife to stimulate him.
For this mirror gazing position, the husband would lay on the bed and the wife would walk up to the edge of the bed and straddle his face. They can position themselves in one of two ways:
- His head faces the mirror so she can bend forward and look back at her butt while he gives her oral sex.
- He faces his butt towards the mirror and she can see the front of herself in the mirror while he’s giving her oral.
Both of these directions can provide great visual stimulation!
Getting Comfortable Naked in Front of the Mirror
I realize that getting in front of the mirror while being intimate with one another is probably not the top priority for everyone. If you have low self-esteem and don’t like the way you look, this can be a scary thing. Before you dare to bare in front of the mirror, I have a few suggestions for you.
- Learn to see yourself as the beautiful and sexy person you are. Follow my “How to Feel Beautiful” series for weekly challenges to help you with this.
- Spend time undressed in front of the mirror. If you can get comfortable with yourself unclothed in front of the mirror, you will have an easier time doing this with your spouse.
- Start out using a smaller mirror. Can’t fathom the thought of seeing your entire reflection? Start out using a handheld mirror that you can use to see what is going on in smaller areas.
Do Men Enjoy Using Mirrors During Sex?
Yes. Yes, they do. I had my husband Austin answer this question for women who want to know, “Do men enjoy using mirrors during sex?”.
Here’s what he had to say:
Ok, maybe we need more than that as an answer.
As always, I’ll begin with the disclaimer that not all men are the same. We talk a lot about gender generalities (genderalities? No that’s dumb.). But just because something is true of most/a lot of men doesn’t mean it’s true of all men.
Guys, if none of the following things are true of you, that’s cool. You be you. Ladies, if you’re wondering about this, go back to our core principle – Communicate, communicate, communicate.
That being said, why would men enjoy using mirrors during sex? Well, there are a few reasons.
Your Husband Thinks You’re Hot
We’ll get more into the specifics of how this pertains to mirrors in the next section. However, I always want to start here. I’m constantly saddened at what the culture is teaching girls and women about their bodies. So many women are ashamed of their looks.
So ladies, always remember this. Your husband thinks you’re hot. He thinks you’re sexy. He likes your body. Let him see it. Be visually generous. Be confident. Remember that when you get naked, your husband loves it.
Men Are Usually Visually Oriented
A lot of guys are very visually stimulated. This is why porn is typically more popular with men, while erotic fiction is more popular with women. With the rising availability and mainstreaming of porn, this trend seems to be changing, btw.
Guys like to look. We want to see your body and get to know all of it. We want to see different angles. We want to see you in different positions. Mirrors can allow for this. It’s impossible to see a side view without a mirror, and that can be incredibly erotic.
Do Women Like To Have Mirror Sex?
Yes! There are many women who feel excited and sexy to see themselves receive oral sex, give a blow job, have their husbands behind them, etc. It can be a big turn-on for them visually to see what’s happening. It can also feed their fantasies later on when they are thinking back on their time with their husbands.
Women Are Also Visually Stimulated
I don’t want my readers to think that women are not stimulated through visual means. What person isn’t aroused by seeing sexual images? Women can feel excited and horny from watching themselves have sex in a mirror or on video.
Even a few seconds of seeing herself be sexually active in a mirror, in pictures, etc. can cause her to get wet. Gazing at what’s going on can bring a lot of excitement to the sexual encounter.
Mirrors Create Adventure
For some couples, using mirrors during their sexual intimacy in marriage kind of takes things to a new level. It’s going on an adventure with one another, which we’re huge fans of in all areas of the marriage. It can be an interesting next step in exploring openness and engagement in your sex life.
Maybe you’re a couple that started out having very hidden sex. By that, I mean sex in the dark, under the covers, etc. Hopefully, you’ve moved beyond that, turning on the lights and enjoying the sight of each other’s bodies. Mirrors provide another step in that direction, allowing you to see each other even better.
