It’s without a doubt the first sex position you’ll ever find yourself in. It is the bread-and-butter of sex positions and the most common one to boot. A 2011 survey had found that it was most preferred one though it’s derided by feminists for being too man-in-control. The basic positioning is very simple and involves the man on top while entering the woman with both of them facing towards one another.
Pros: It’s a very simple position for beginners and doesn’t need a great deal of athleticism or know-how. Because the partners are face-to-face there’s more eye contact and kissing. There’s also a greater amount of body contact and the hands and legs can be manipulated to create a variety of different positions.
Cons: The position despite its popularity has some drawbacks. It can be very difficult to achieve if the male partner is significantly heavier. It’s also a position in which most people get stuck and they don’t explore other forms or positions. It should also be avoided during pregnancies. Also a woman has very limited movement (only option is thrusting upwards) and this can result in a limited degree of control.
This is just the first part of the article. Read about the missionary, woman-on-top, spooning, the anvil, 69 and rear entry sex positions.
