Position ambition: stretching for sex with a ballet dancer
In my years of being a professional dancer, I’ve learnt that the associated flexibility remains a hot topic of interest for many. On social media channels, a dance photo of someone in ‘the splits’ seems to hold more currency than something arguably more arty. This got me thinking about flexibility, sex, and the steps to enjoying a more creative horizontal pas de deux. . .
Whilst I don’t claim expertise in choreographing bedroom acrobatics (google will provide truly fascinating inspiration) I can share some thoughts on how exploring your own body through movement can potentially benefit those out there keen to up their position ambition when it comes to sex.
One of the many benefits of dancing regularly is the very personal physical education you receive – both conscious and unconscious – of your own anatomy. You develop an intrinsic awareness of all the moving parts in your body; how they move, how you control and manipulate them in space, areas of natural mobility and where you hold tension. This physical awareness is empowering – when you’re feeling healthy and connected, your sensory experience is enriched at a cellular level – and when things aren’t feeling so good you have the knowledge to quickly identify and resolve it.

This kind of awareness is obviously not exclusive to dancers – the challenge is finding the way in that works for you and to make the time in a busy world where it’s too easy to spend days static in front of screens. Taking yourself out of your mind and situating yourself in your body is an incredibly powerful tool. It helps you feel safe in your own skin, assists with relaxation, and soothes anxiety – basically all the key elements to feeling sexy and free.
