Missionary Position: Classic yet versatile

missionary-sex

Oldie but a goldie: The good old missionary position is often snubbed, but according to various surveys it is still one of the most popular sex positions of all. This may be due to the fact that it really isn’t as boring as naysayers claim. It is a classic – and it can be upgraded quite a bit with different tricks… Here is everything you need to know about the missionary position.

Missionary position – much more than just a snoozefest

It is comfortable, no limbs get dislocated and you can look into each other’s eyes while making love – there are a few things that speak for the missionary position. Especially in moments when you can barely get up to the most beautiful trivial thing in the world, it is a good idea to do missionary work in a relaxed way. Or if you have just met someone and want to check out your sex preferences, this position is a good start. With the right amount of passion, it can be a really hot number.

You can pimp the missionary position

  • A hint of S&M: Tying your sweetheart to a bedpost with a scarf quickly spices up this old classic…
  • A little more intensity, please: To help penetrate her, it’s handy to place a pillow under the woman’s hips. Small step, big impact.
  • Lift your leg: No one says that in this position the woman has to lie stretched out all the time. This way she can put her legs up or – for even more passion – wrap them around her partner, because then he can penetrate her all the deeper.
  • The beat of her own drum: With a firm grip on his ass, the woman can easily set the pace and show him exactly how she wants it.
  • A little spicy something: While he stimulates her clitoris with his penis, she can also give him a hand and thus provide an additional level of pampering.

The CAT Position: The special edition missionary position

If any position may call itself a pimped version of the good old missionary, it’s the CAT position. The abbreviation has absolutely nothing to do with pussycats, it stands for Coital Alignment Technique. And this is how it works: one partner lies down, with the other on top of her and, as soon as he is inside her, she closes her legs. The man now slides up until his and her pelvic bones are on top of each other.

The trick: The man now moves his penis from a slightly elevated position downwards instead of back and forth. In addition, the hips rub against each other rhythmically, which further increases the intensity – the clitoris is also intensively stimulated. According to a study by the Journal of Sex and Marriage Therapy, 56 percent of the women surveyed achieve orgasm better in this position than in the classic missionary position.

What sex toys work with the missionary position?

Using sex toys is fun – whether solo or in pairs. Especially tingling are toys that couples can wear when having sex together, because this is something like the whole package. And the missionary position is ideal for integrating couples toys into sex.
