Reverse Cowgirl Sex Positions

Basic Reverse Cowgirl Sex Position:

This position seems to be most popular in porn, and it was probably there that it was given the descriptive and funny name “reverse cowgirl”. Needless to say the position works regardless of gender or occupation of the person on top. It is a variation of the woman on top position but with the partner on top facing away from the partner lying down.

Variations on the Reverse Cowgirl Position:

If you like the idea of this position, think about how it will be most comfortable for you.

If you’re the "cowgirl" in this scenario, you can either have your legs bent at the knees and have your legs tucked under your thighs, or you can have your feet flat on the bed or floor, and use your leg muscles to move yourself up and down. You can be sitting up, or lean forward which can allow you to use your arms to support your weight and also for moving up and down.

Pros of the Reverse Cowgirl Sex Position:

  • As with any woman on top position, there is the benefit of having complete control of thrusting, angle, and movement.
  • Other than that, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of strong following for this position. It does allow for the person on the bottom to have a particularly good view of their partner’s bum, and if you like to see yourself having sex, and have an appropriately placed mirror, the woman on top can see more than if she were lying down.

Cons of the Reverse Cowgirl Sex Position:

  • One partner is doing most of the work in this position, so you might not consider it completely equitable.
  • If you like a lot of physical contact with penetration, this isn’t the position for you.
