Why Is The Missionary Position So Popular?

  • Kandidsutra

When it comes to surveys about the UK’s favourite sex positions, the good old missionary always appears near the top of the list. This is reassuring news for those people who are worried that their preference for ‘vanilla style’ sex might make them seem unadventurous in bed. What is it about this well tried and tested method that makes it so popular?

 

What is the missionary position?

Just to be clear, the missionary position is a face-to-face sex position, where the person who is doing the penetrating is on top, with the person receiving underneath them. The main benefit of this arrangement is its sense of intimacy, as the couple are face to face and can look into each other’s eyes during sex, which many people find erotic.

It is also a flattering position for both parties, as the person on top can show off their chest and arms, while most women feel the missionary makes their body look good. If you are relaxed and confident, and not worrying about your appearance, you are much more likely to shed any inhibitions in bed.

 

How can you spice up the missionary position?

There is nothing wrong with a bit of variety now and again! Why not try using silicone sex toys to provide extra stimulation during sex. Small bullet vibrators or love eggs can be used externally to give heightened sensation to erogenous zones such as the clitoris. For men, penis rings can be used to prolong the pleasure.

If you would like to have sex more often, try and create a sensual environment to get you in the mood. Soften the lighting with candles, and place your favourite essential oils by the bed. Experiment with lingerie or sexy outfits, or change up the location by moving to the living room sofa, or even the kitchen table occasionally!
