Basic Missionary Position:
Considered the most common sexual position (although many surveys would indicate that it isn’t) the missionary position is a basic lying down sex position where the man is on top, supporting himself with his upper body. Despite the idea that this is the “traditional” sexual position, it is actually not very good for allowing a lot of movement, and the angle may not be ideal for penetration.
Variations on the Missionary Position:
If you like the idea of this position, think about how it will be most comfortable for you.
Use pillows underneath the partner on the bottom to change up the angle of penetration, and also lift their body off the bed or floor. There are many variations on lifting the legs of the partner on the bottom, which will change up the feeling of this position.
Pros of the Missionary Position:
- It allows for a lot of physical front-to-front body contact, as well as face to face contact.
Cons of the Missonary Position:
- It can be physically demanding for the partner on top.
- It greatly limits the mobility of the partner on the bottom.
- If the partner on the bottom has any sort of physical pain or mobility limitations, this position won’t likely work for them.
