Big Fun

Dear Mistress Maeve,

My husband and I have been married for 6 years, and we have a 5-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter. I'm a petite person (5'4", 130lbs). My husband, on the other hand, is a giant. He is 6'7" and weighs 290lbs. Finding sexual positions has always been challenging due to our size difference, but we figured out ways to use the living room furniture, the clothes washer and the kitchen counters to correctly align ourselves for lovemaking. However, now that the kids are big enough to sneak out of bed after bedtime, we've been trying to keep our sex life in the bedroom, but it's getting frustrating. He ends up having to hold me in position, which is tiring for him and uncomfortable for me. Can you suggest any new positions?


Dear Katherine,

Have you ever heard the saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it?" If using furniture helps you line up the goods, consider putting an armchair or loveseat in your bedroom. If you're cramped for space in the bedroom, I suggest putting a lock on the laundry room door. If you and your hubby have had a satisfying sex life up until now, I think you should make some minor adjustments and go about your business.

out there specifically designed to help you. For example, you might want
to check out the Liberator line of lovemaking gear. They specialize in making bedroom accoutrements for the taller-than-average lover. You don't have to be freakishly tall to use these products; you can purchase Liberators for lovers under 5'9", lovers over 6'4" and lovers over 6'7". You can also get some styles in a wider version for plus-size folks. Check out their site for video demonstrations of their products (but perhaps you shouldn't watch at work).

While I haven't personally tested the Liberator products, a 6'6" friend of mine swears by them. I also see that the Liberator products come with a machine washable cover, so when you're washing it, perhaps you and hubby can enjoy the spin cycle.
