Far from being just the social media app that showcases viral dance trends and sleep tips, TikTok is fast becoming the go-to platform for finding new sex hacks to improve your time in the bedroom, with the hashtag #sexadvice gaining over 1.2 million views.
From spicing up foreplay to achieving a “coregasm”, sex hacks are going viral and gaining millions of views.
Dr. Janet Brito, an AASECT-certified sex therapist and supervisor at Lovehoney, has revealed which viral TikToks actually work, and the results may be surprising!
Stomach Sex Hack: 40 million+ views
Sex advice TikToker, Nurse Ria, recently posted a video (that is unfortunately no longer available) claiming that pressing down on a woman’s stomach during sex can help stimulate the G-spot.
Ok… But how does this work?
Dr. Janet says that the stomach sex hack may work for some, but the most important thing is to experiment.
“As some folks may experience more sensation around other areas of the pelvis, trying new moves to create pleasurable sensations is always a good idea, with consent of course,” she says.
Sex Pillow Hack: 20 million+ views
This hack involves putting a pillow under the woman’s pelvis in order to increase pleasure, as the position allows the pelvis to be tilted up, therefore allowing more access to the G-spot.
“The sex pillow hack allows for an anterior pelvic tilt,” Dr. Janet explains. “The pelvis angles upwards, making penetrative sex more comfortable, and making it easier to experiment with various angles. It also allows for deeper penetration.”
Egg Yolk Technique: 13.8 million views
In this TikTok, the user explains that when stimulating a woman with your hands, you can imagine you're gently rubbing the yolk of an egg in circular motions without breaking it.
The user explains that if you push too hard or go too fast, the yolk will break, similarly, you may be able to give more pleasure with this more gentle massage technique.
Dr. Janet says that this technique is a helpful suggestion for both internal and external stimulation, but cleanliness and consent is important.
“Most importantly, it is best to obtain consent first and ask the receiver how they want to be stimulated,” she advises. “Some folks may prefer a less gentle approach. The suggestion on maintaining nail hygiene, including filing the fingernails and washing the hands, is key.”
Four Minute Foreplay: 5.9 million views
Forget the four-minute mile, this next TikTok tip suggests setting a four-minute timer, where you take turns with your partner and have four minutes each to spice up foreplay and please each other.
Not one for those who have trouble performing under pressure, Dr Janet advises that the four-minute foreplay works for those couples who are comfortable with adventure.
“Novelty helps to spice things up in the bedroom and to rediscover each other.”
Coregasm: 1.5 million views
Giving new meaning to the term “Drop and give me 20!”, a coregasm is the possibility of experiencing an orgasm while exercising your ab muscles. This particular hack has gone viral on TikTok and the hashtag #coregasm has received over 1.5 million views.
“Coregasms work for non-sexual orgasms due to an individual’s anatomy and physiology, headspace at the time of the exercise, and repetitive motion of the exercise,” Dr. Janet explains.
“They are not necessarily linked to erotic content, but more associated to repetitive body movements.”
Tantric Sex: 1.7 million views
The hack that promises to take you from “Om” to “Oh”, the hashtag ‘#tantric’ has 21.6 million views and this particular TikTok about it has clocked up 1.7 million views.
In the video, the user explains that tantric sex is a form of sexual meditation in which partners are encouraged to explore their deepest sensations during sex.
Dr. Janet says that tantric sex may help folks who are anxious about sexual performance to move away from thinking about sex, to being in their bodies.
“By being curious about one’s body’s sensations, and practicing a nonjudgemental stance, tantric sex helps people to reframe sex from a performative activity, to a pleasure-based one.”
