St. Patrick's Day is a holiday with Roman Catholic origins. It began as a celebratory feast for the foremost patron saint of Ireland. Today, it has become synonymous with partying, drinking, and sex. As with many cultural and religious celebrations, young people have taken it upon themselves to celebrate St. Patrick's Day the best way they know how: by getting wasted in the middle of the afternoon. Christmas has SantaCon, Valentine's Day has boozy singles events, and St. Paddy's Day has green beer and "Kiss me, I'm Irish" t-shirts. Even if you're not actually Irish (OK, especially if you're not actually Irish), these four St. Patrick's Day sex positions will keep you feeling as festive as a four-leaf clover.
Whether you plan on going home with a cutie you meet at an Irish pub, or you just want to ensure that you and your significant other have a shamrock-ing good time on March 17, this list is full of magically delicious inspiration. Just go easy on the Guinness, okay? This year, try the festive sex moves below. You might even decide to start your own sexy St. Paddy's Day tradition. After all, this is one holiday that is all about getting lucky.
Flirty fighting is the best kind of fighting, especially with your significant other. So, why not take "fighting Irish" literally and engage in some frisky foreplay with your boyfriend or girlfriend on St. Patrick's Day? If you're sleeping off green Jell-O shots in bed or on the couch next to your partner, start to gently tease and tickle them until they wake up and retaliate. Soon enough you'll be engaged in a full-blown, yet playful, wrestling match. Keep it up, and soon enough you'll progress from the fighting Irish to the rhymes-with-lucking Irish.
The shamrock shake is simply a St. Paddy's-themed take on the classic reverse cowgirl position. This move will give your partner a great view of that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Just like in reverse cowgirl, straddle your partner backwards, with your knees on either side of their hips. Lower yourself onto their penis or a strap-on, and start to move up and down. You're in control, so grind and gyrate to your heart's content and build momentum however you please. If you want, you can also use one hand to stimulate your clit for an even more intense orgasm. By the time you're done, you'll both be left (shamrock) shaking.
Ed Sheeran's song, "Galway Girl" has influenced study abroad Instagram captions and St. Paddy's Day pick-up lines alike, so why shouldn't it also inspire a sex position? For the Galway Girl on Top move, you guessed it — a girl is on top. Similar to the reverse missionary position, have your partner lie on their back with their legs together. Lie on your stomach on top of them, with one leg on either side of their body. You may want to bend your knees and extend your arms as well. Pushing against the bed can help to guide your movements and more easily find your rhythm. Before you know it, your partner will be calling you their pretty little Galway girl.
If your St. Patrick's Day celebration every year consists of putting on your cutest green top and applying a shimmering shamrock temporary tattoo, it's time to be a little more creative. Get your Irish on with these uniquely sexy shenanigans and you'll be lucky as can be come March 17.
