Some riders love motorcycles because it gives them a short escape from their partner, but riding as couples could have more advantages, including better sex!
Motorbike Writer psychologist Sharon Ledger says sharing your motorcycling passion could lead to more passion in the bedroom.
“By all means, go for a ride with your mates, but also go for rides that include your partner as it will increase your intimacy,” she says.
Sharon and her husband, Brien, not only share a passion for riding, but also Indian motorcycles. Sharon rides a Scout Sixty and Brien a Chief Vintage.
“It is important to have some balance in your riding life,” she says. “If you only ever went riding with others, it could cause resentment in your partner.
“Sometimes it’s good just for one of us to go and bond with our friends. Guys need ‘bloke time’ to talk about bloke stuff and women need ‘girl time’.
“You need time together and time apart to keep things interesting.”
Whether you each ride, or one of you is the dedicated pillion-in-a-million like Mrs MBW, there are many healthy attributes of couples riding.
10 REASONS RIDING COUPLES LAST LONGER
It’s difficult for riders to be negative when they are riding. And studies have shown that couples who have a positive attitude have a healthier marriage.
Couples may live in the same house, but their time together can be limited by TV, social media, household duties and other distractions. When you ride together, you are sharing focused, quality time. University studies have shown that couples who share their hobby have a happier marriage.
If you ride with a group of friends or in a club, you are sharing your social circle which can be healthy for a relationship. However, be warned that some studies have also shown this can lead to unhealthy results such as jealousy. So, don’t always ride with your club. Enjoy some time riding just as a couple.
If you have different hobbies, it can be expensive. But if you share the same hobby, you can share costs. Although, if you both have a bike, it can also double costs!
Following on from the above, your priorities become identical, so there is less chance of fighting. If you are both striving to get the housework done so you can go riding, you’ll no doubt work together. There is also the benefit of having a common goal toward saving for a bike, gear or a riding holiday, which is a healthy bonding experience.
PRESENTS AND GIFTS
You will never again be at a loss for a gift to buy your partner for their birthday, Fathers/Mothers Day, Christmas and/or Valentines Day. Just hit your local motorcycle store and get some bike accessories or gear for your partner. Or book a combined riding holiday.
Growing old together is about sharing memories of family, friends and events. If you share your major pastime, you will have so much more to share.
The home is not a conducive environment to communicate because of the tensions that may live there. Getting out on the bike and talking at your favourite cafe stop puts you in a more conducive environment for good communication. Also, modern Bluetooth intercoms allow you to continue to chat while riding, pointing out things you see as you go and discussing issues without arguing. It’s hard to argue when you’re having such a good time riding.
Have you ever seen the couple sitting in a restaurant, not saying anything? Sharing a hobby and a ride give you so much more to talk about.
We saved the best for last. Sharon says being a pillion develops intimacy by constant touching. But even riding on separate bikes is good because it is a mental and emotional build-up to a physical bonding at the end of the ride. “Men just have to think about sex and can have it, but women need time to build up. Riding together can be part of that build-up to a more physical intimacy. Even talking and sharing the emotional experience of a ride can put women more in the mood for sex.”
And we even have 5 tips for you how to do it properly
For a motorcycle enthusiast, the sex experience on a bike is often a fantasy. When it comes to fruition, it can be disappointing if inexperience plays a roll. The possible positions are not always easy to execute and balance is sometimes a needed piece of the puzzle. Use these tips to make the experience the best it can be without regretting it later.
Not in public. The first motorcycle sex tip is to make sure the area you choose offers the necessary privacy. Public nudity is against the law in all states. The charge can range from a ticket to jail time. If a minor happens to cross paths with your escapade, you can actually end up with a sex offender label for the rest of your life. Avoid legal issues by choosing to only have motorcycle sex in areas where there is no danger of being viewed by others. A privacy fenced area or a thickly wooded area is preferable to the open road. If you are having “rolling sex”, choose a road less traveled at a time when traffic is non-existent.
Rev it up. A motorcycle sex tip that might not have crossed your mind is to leave the engine running with the bike in park. The vibration of the engine acts like an over-sized sex toy for both participants. Rev the engine up and the intensity of sex rises.
Doggie-Style. Often, motorcycle sex is thought of as the woman facing the man on the bike. This motorcycle sex tip tells you to turn the lady around and go doggie style. With the woman in the front seat leaning over the gas tank, the motion of sex is natural.
Get off. This motorcycle sex tip tells men to get off the bike. Sit the lady on the seat facing you controlling the throttle of the bike. Stand in front of her or even attempt it from behind with the bike on the center stand.
Try oral. The final motorcycle sex tip is to try oral on the bike. Ladies lay on the tank with their feet over the handle bars. This gives them easy access to the right male parts.
