How many different sex positions have you tried – one, two or five? That’s like having eaten only five different dishes all your life! No wonder people in relationships claim sex gets boring after a while. To keep things interesting and help spice up your sex life, health.india.com is going to try and bring out a list of every sex position known to humankind. After exploring the standard missionary, rear entry, woman on top and spooning sex position in earlier articles in the series we are going to bring you a position a more athletic and shall we say advanced position:
The standing sex position is less common than the ones we have discussed till now and requires a certain degree of athleticism and strength especially from the male partner. It usually involves the female partner with her back against the wall using it as a support while the male partner enters her while supporting her body weight by holding her up. The female partner can either put one leg on the ground or wrap it around her partner’s hips but only if he’s strong enough to support her bodyweight.
Pros: It’s a great sex position for a quickie or if you want something lusty and passionate. Since the partners are face to face there’s kissing and greater chance of clitoral stimulation with all the different angles available. Also some angles will allow the male partner to penetrate more deeply than is possible during missionary or the other lying down positions.
Cons: This position needs a certain degree of confidence and it won’t happen unless you’re both passionate and/or into each other. Also unless the male partner is strong enough he will have trouble supporting his partner’s weight. All in all it can be a quite intimidating position for the male – he has to support his partner’s weight, thrust and give/have an orgasm at the same time. It isn’t a cakewalk for the female partner either who is always wondering if her partner will drop her.
All said and done the standing sex position is a rough sex position which isn’t for beginners but definitely worth the effort.
