Ever wondered why you prefer a certain sexual position more than others?
It’s about more than just the angle of your G-spot, you know.
Your favourite sexual position actually says HEAPS about how you’re feeling on the inside. Find out what yours means below…
Missionary means you need intimacy. It’s a sign that you want to be closer to your partner – and that’s a good thing. Though it often gets called ‘boring’ and ‘vanilla’, missionary position is great as you get maximum body contact, as well as heaps of kissing and caressing. It’s the lovers position. Just be cautious that it’s not because your man is feeling insecure. He may be watching your face to ensure you’re enjoying yourself. Make sure to let him know in other ways and teach him if you’re not loving it.
According to Sex Educator Dr. Charlie Glickman, Doggy style means that you’re feeling ‘raw and animalistic’. It may be the most impersonal sex position, but is very stimulating indeed. It delivers the deepest penetration and the most direct stimulation for a woman’s G-spot.
Dr Glickman advises that people who have spooning sex are feeling particularly friendly and affectionate. Spooning is an insanely intimate act all on its own, but throwing sex into the ring takes it up a couple of knotches.
Sex Therapist Ava Cadell says that people who have sex standing are no doubt feeling adventurous. Apparently it’s all to do with the thrill of getting caught. Tensions are heightened and your naughty side really comes out to play! It’s not all that affectionate, it’s definitely about the sex with this one.
Apparently a man who likes his woman on top is feeling selfless. This is somewhat different to the idea I had about this position, which is often seen as an indulgence for men, who don’t have to do any of the work. Cadell says that this position gives the man the chance to be both submissive and dominant at the same time. He either lets the woman take control, or penetrates her more deeply as possible to maximise her chance of orgasm.
‘If you go the reverse cowgirl you’re feeling very frisky’, says Dr. Glickman. It’s a position where the woman is in charge as she had control over the speed and depth of penetration. The guy is normally always a big fan of this position because a) he doesn’t have to do any work, and b) he likes the view.
