The Missionary Position

The missionary position is probably one of the most widely used positions during sex. In this position, the woman lies on her back with her legs bent and her knees pointing up with her feet on the bed. Her partner lies on top of her, generally with his knees on the bed or other surface. The man supports himself with his arms, and the woman’s hips support his hips.

The man does the thrusting and most of the movement in this position. It’s a somewhat difficult position for the woman to move freely, especially if the man is larger than she is and leans on her during lovemaking.

Basic variations of the missionary position include having the woman wrap her legs over the ankles, thighs, or buttocks of her partner. She can even move them up to his waist and back. These variations sometimes happen spontaneously as the woman get more excited and turned on. The natural reaction is to move closer to create more contact as the lovemaking progresses.

These positions can stimulate the G-spot and the interior vaginal spots that women identify as pleasure producing. They are also great for eye contact, whispers, loving words, and kissing; and the partners can put their arms around each other. Traditional thrusting, however, doesn’t do much for most women because there’s no clitoral stimulation.

The missionary position is perhaps the most widely used sexual position.
