Hi guys, first time poster. Kinda nervious to be posting this but here it goes:

I have a mild case of spastic CP. My boyfriend of four months and I are seriously considering the idea of P in V sex in the next few months. We both have talked at length about it, gotten tested, and have a safer sex kit.
My Question is: Are there any positions you would suggest for a partner with stiff leg muscles?

I have read the Ultimate guide to sex and disability and while it was helpful, I would really like some real-life perspective.

Welcome to the boards, funniliyenough. [Smile]

Probably what you want to aim for are positions which don't ask much, if anything, of your legs and don't put strain on your legs. You may also find that it helps not to stay in any one posture for too long to help you avoid muscle cramps.

So, for instance, positions where you're not on your knees, and where your legs can be up in the air, or around your partner's body loosely, or even set on something to relax them on, like some pillows.

Just like with anyone else, with or without disability, fining what feels comfortable for your unique body is likely to just involve some experimenting. But you come to this probably already knowing a good deal about what is and isn't comfortable for you even with standing and sitting you can apply here: if given things don't feel good doing those things, they probably won't during any kind of sex, either. Same goes for how things have felt with other kinds of sex so far.
