The basic woman on top sex position

The woman on top is one of the most common sexual positions (despite the enduring belief that missionary position is the most popular). The most common version of this sex position has the woman sitting on top of her partner facing him/her, with her knees bent and shins on the ground.

Benefits:

  • This sex position gives the woman the greatest amount of control, she can control the pace of the thrusting, and the angle of penetration
  • This position also means her clitoris is open and available for stimulation from hands or a toy.
  • Sex toys that are meant to go around the penis and provide clitoral stimulation for the woman are often most effective with this position.

Drawbacks:

  • For people who like a lot of thrusting penetration, this position can be unsatisfying. As well, for the time that the woman is actually sitting up, there is less body to body contact than other positions (it's not very cuddly, if that's what you are looking for).
