The basic reverse cowgirl sex position

Popularized by pornography the reverse cowgirl is really just a variation of the woman on top position where the partner on top is facing away from the partner lying down.

Benefits:

  • The partner on top has complete control over the angle, depth, and speed of penetration.

Drawbacks:

  • This position doesn't allow for a lot of physical contact or for any eye contact (unless mirrors are involved).
  • In the basic position, the partner lying down isn't able to do much in the way of movement, which means that one person is doing most of the work.
