Mirror sex not only gives a full, VIP view of you and your partner doing the deed, but it pays attention to every small body detail you may have missed out on. Whether it’s the slow way your partner’s lubricated friend enters your hole or your tongue exploring every inch of their body, you get to see how you look when you do it. The mirror can never lie about what it sees, after all.
What you see is what you get, which are those o’s!
So if you’ve been adventurous to give this eye-opening idea, this article will tackle how you can pull it off perfectly and unlock your true reflection as a sex god/goddess!
Why People Like Mirror Sex
Ever wonder what drives people to engage in the deed with a reflective surface as a playful prop? We listed down popular reasons behind the intrigue of mirror sex and any mirror sex position we’d suggest later on.
1. Some people enjoy seeing their reflections.
We tend to associate mirrors with vanity as we cop a view of ourselves. However, that shouldn’t always be the case because it’s not selfish to like whatever we see in the mirror if our confidence is high. Also, we naturally feel good whenever we catch a glimpse of ourselves on any reflective surface.
In fact, visual stimulation is a biological turn-on for us humans, as said by the recognized GSRD (Gender, Sex, Relationship Diversity) therapist Dr. Lori Beth Bisbey. Come to think of it, mirror sex is almost like a free sex tape with naughty mental images you can keep and remember over time. Though you can always close your eyes when the penetration overwhelms you (in a good way), then again, you’d try your best to lock your eyes on the mirror.
Furthermore, men are more likely to have their eyes open during the deed than girls, whose eyes are closed because they’re more focused on the sensations. So expect them to be eyes wide when pounding you with a mirror nearby while you’ll strongly catch up to them.
2. It helps those with low confidence levels.
With the continuous harsh standards of society towards one’s body image, only some are comfortable with their reflection. Whenever we face a reflective surface, we’d point out our flaws first as instinct. Thoughts like “Oh, I gained some weight here.” or “Yikes, should I cover up?” erode our minds, gaining the upper hand at further wrecking how we view ourselves.
However, mirror sex can reverse all that self-depreciation. Sex puts you in a vulnerable state when you get rid of your clothes, similar to viewing yourself in the mirror. Yet with mirror sex, you gain reassurance from your partner as they please you with their words and actions. You get to see how they see you: with so much love. Sex is meant to make one feel happy and loved, and if it can simultaneously impact one’s confidence levels, mirror sex can achieve both. Alongside those addictive o’s!
3. It heightens the intimacy levels between you and your partner.
Mirror sex involves a lot of back-and-forth viewing from the reflective surface and your partner on it. With the latter, you get to see each other eye to eye more. You’d be able to pick up what makes your partner crumble rather than relying on sounds and body language. Communication levels are bound to get better, especially on the topic of sex. After sex, you could converse more transparently on what to repeat or disregard next time.
4. Any angle is a good angle.
Doing the deed with a mirror allows viewing each other from different angles. Even if you have your default sex positions, bringing in a mirror is a game changer. You’ll unravel facial expressions or body quirks you couldn’t pick up before the mirror.
5. There are various mirrors you can use.
Mirrors are accessories to make one’s home feel livelier and more spacious. Not only that, they work as great props in your bedroom play just as well. Depending on your eagerness, there’s an array to choose from. You can always build up from small mirrors to larger ones or interchange when doing the deed for a spicer sexcapade. Don’t worry, we have an entire section dedicated to this benefit of mirror sex.
5 Types of Mirrors You Can Use
A full-length mirror is perhaps the first thing you’ll think of when you think of mirror sex. That’s understandable because you get to see everything unraveling (if your eyes aren’t closed from pleasure), but there are other mirrors you can incorporate when you’re in the mood. It’s all about how your imagination and creativity on how you can make them exhibit more sexy angles of yourselves.
1. Handheld Mirror
Don’t be fooled by these miniature, portable surfaces. Its size is a perfect advantage: showing the tiny body details you’ve never seen before near your private parts. Who knows if a mole or birthmark is near there? Well, most definitely, your partner can unlock that discovery as they penetrate you. Oh, you can get a better closeup of them entering your hole.
The mirror can be situated by the side of your bed, or they hold it up at a nearer angle for your eyes to see. Watch how your body reacts to your partner. But aside from these suggestions, take the chance to use a handheld mirror to highlight certain body parts, watching them go wild during sex.
2. Vanity Mirror
Whether it’s near your closet or your accessories/makeup pile, this type of mirror makes a great addition to your sexcapades. To be bent over, gripping on the side as your partner thrusts into you powerfully, you’ll see all your makeup raining down your face due to your tears of pleasure. Imagine doing it before going to work, gosh. You’re bound to be late.
But truly, your vanity about yourself can be out of this world when your face is practically squished on the surface when you’re doing the deed. And that’s on self-love, right?
3. Bathroom Mirror
Another strong contender like the last one! As you bend over for your partner, you have your butt in the air. You lock eyes and feel them slide your wetness. This can make you reach that O quickly while you grip the edges of the sink. If you’re too impatient to do it in the shower or don’t want to get wet, facing them in the bathroom mirror makes a perfect alternative.
But if you want to amp it up, try doing somewhere public. Club, restaurant, you call the shots. Let your exhibitionist tendencies go wild with this kind of mirror sex. As long you don’t get caught, respect each other’s boundaries, hush up, and not disrupt the public peace, go get feral!
4. Ceiling Mirror
This type of mirror isn’t just to open up the room and let more light in. If you’re a kinky babe, consider installing a ceiling mirror for all your sexcapades. Aside from seeing each other from various angles, imagine looking at each other from above as you ride your partner or watch them go down you.
Oh, let’s not forget post-sex through the said mirror. Your raw, matching and blown-out expressions reflect back to you and your partner. And man, you can’t help but smile when the sex is extra amazing.
If you don’t have this mirror, try booking a room at a motel. This kind of mirror sex has to be on your bucket list of sexcapades!
5. Full-Length Mirror
Ah, yes. We can’t leave the top choice option for mirror sex. You can be standing up, bending over, or laying down. Whether it’s placed in your living room, bedroom, or whatever relevant part of your home, catch a complete rundown of your session.
You can see it all from kissing, licking, sucking, and thrusting if your eyes are strong enough to take the pleasure. Strength is key here, babes. Don’t blind yourself from the sensations and witness how beautiful sex can be with your partner.

8 Mirror Sex Tips to Remember
If the mirror sex positions portion has you wilding, you may need to calm a bit for this one. Being prepared before trying this kind of sex ensures safety for you and your partner, so here are our tips on how to make your mirror sexcapades worth your time and effort.
1. Drop your shyness out the door.
That trait shouldn’t even be invited to your sexcapades because it holds you back from new, mind-blowing experiences. Especially when a mirror shows the raw side of your physique, there’s no point in hiding. But at the same time, don’t force yourself to commit to something you’re uncomfortable with.
Discuss with your partner how you’ll go around with this kind of sex, mixing and matching various sizes of mirrors to use. From there, decipher which position to do as we stated above. Mirror sex should unlock your wild sides, so don’t hinder yourself from showing your kinkier side!
2. Set the mood.
Don’t rush into the act! Figure out the session’s pace or tone; will it be rough? Slow? Intimate? Degrading? When that’s settled, consider adding other accessories. Music, candles, dim lights, make use of your creativity here. Also, take your time with foreplay, kissing, and touching wherever you and your partner are.
3. Do a striptease.
There’s nothing more seductive than slowly undressing yourself to your partner before doing the deed. You can help each other by discarding your clothing together, whether you’re standing up or already getting tossing and turning in the sheets. Bonus points if there’s music in the background, where you can give your partner a show that’ll harden their crotch even more. So sway those hips and make your partner drool more, babe!
4. Change angles every time.
So you’re down to do mirror sex again, but how can I spice it up? By changing the angles of sex positions, you’re utilizing other mirrors in your session. Whether you want your partner to blow your back or devour you like a treat, you access other mirrors (like what we mentioned in the beginning) and maximize their sexual magic. So even if you already enjoy whatever you tried, it doesn’t hurt to try new positions.
5. Don’t break eye contact.
There’s nothing more crumbling than locking eyes with your partner when you’re reaching your orgasm. Whether in the mirror or at each other, have a shared orgasm together and let it all out. Or whatever position you do, always look back to see their eyes before resuming your act. Eye contact can reveal how you feel without words being said, so use that to your advantage.
6. View yourself in the mirror.
Running away from your fears gets you nowhere compared to facing them. If you’re still iffy with your reflection yet intrigued to try mirror sex, take baby steps by sparing a glance at your mirror. It can be any mirror you have at home, then give yourself a minute or two. Train your mind to focus on the positive and battle any negative ones.
You can also start fully clothed, then as times go by, watch yourself strip until you’re in the nude. Recite affirmations towards yourself and share words of appreciation towards your body. Because once you learn to appreciate and love yourself bit by bit, you can resonate that with your partner.
7. Incorporate other kinks.
Mirror sex and engaging in the positions we listed above are already fun and spicy alone. But why not amplify the mood even more with other kinks? Whether you’re a beginner or experienced in mirror sex, any kink makes an ideal addition. Some examples we highly suggest are food play, corruption kink, degradation kink, and praise kink.
Especially the latter. It enhances the romantic mood and further gives reassurance to one another.
8. Add some sex toys and lube.
Whatever mirror sex position you’re ready to get down with, inserting a sex toy beforehand or during the deed releases much more arousal and enjoyment from the both of you. Not only that, orgasms will release from you both effortlessly and heavenly with them. Then with lube, it makes the experience smoother and more intimate when you’re moving in perfect and safe sync. Yes, lube is safe for the vulva owner especially to avoid tearing while engaging in the deed.
And that wraps up our guide to Mirror Sex! Not only is it visual candy, but it only intensifies the penetration and arousal between you and your partner. You get to see different angles of each other without hiding, capturing the natural affection and sexual drive you have for each other.
