Set ground rules, agree on what can be done, and go with the flow! If you want her to use a different position and she agrees, that's great! But if he's not into doing what you said, accept it and try something else.
It doesn't hurt to ask. You only know this person for casual sex and nothing else. And this means don't be involved with their friends and family. Don't attend family gatherings and friend outings—you only know her for the sex. Plus, the majority of NSA relationships are kept on the low. No one really wants other people to know they're in that kind of relationship. Don't get to know the person, avoid their friends and family, and simply gain pleasure from this person.
Also, if any of his family members found out, who knows what might go down? Like I've mentioned before, there should be ground rules that the two of you set, both in bed and in the NSA relationship as a whole. When it comes to sex, know what the other person isn't into, what they love, and how to receive the same amount of satisfaction. It's not a good NSA relationship if one person is getting the most pleasure out of it—it should be mutual.
And setting rules can also go for the NSA relationship overall. Many people who are in an NSA relationship can all agree that neither of them should get to know the other in a personal way, meet anyone they know, or be someone close in their life. Remember, an NSA relationship is simply having fun, casual sex; you're not their love interest. You don't want to get to know this person, because if the conversation gets too heavy, either one of you might develop feelings.
So, once the fun sex is over, split ASAP. I know it sounds harsh, but in order to prevent catching feelings, this is a must. This means no cuddling after sex, no conversing before sex, nothing that involves really getting to know the other person. Don't mention getting dinner with them, heading to the movies, going to the mall, none of that. Yes, you have the privilege to see other people!
Your NSA partner can also see other people, they're not loyal to you. The only thing the two of you are loyal to is giving and gaining pleasure. Plus, it's part of the advantages when it comes to NSA relationships—you can date other people. However, if you do start dating and beginning to fall for that person, it's possible to end your NSA relationship. Unless your dating partner is fine with it, then I don't see why not. But you should also let the person you're dating know that you're in an NSA relationship beforehand.
If you've been in an emotional relationship with this person for five months for even five years, they're probably not the best person to be in a NSA relationship with. Since you loved her once, it's possible to fall in love with her again while being in a NSA relationship with her.
It's best you stay far away from your ex to avoid catching feelings. So, it's defeating the purpose if you're having sex with someone you once loved.
It's not a serious relationship, you're not devoted to this person, and you can date while being in an NSA relationship. Be selfish in bed, know less about the person, and only use them to give and receive pleasure. But remember, don't get too carried away. This means no forcing something on them if they don't want it and prevent falling in love with them.
If you're searching for a committed relationship, then don't consider an NSA relationship, because it'll only break you. But overall, go with the flow and have fun in your NSA relationship!
