The What’s What of Missionary Position

The missionary position, as the pious would have it, refers to one of the many variations of man-on-top position. The Kama Sutra, for example, might break up man-on-top-facing-each-other positions into many, depending on whether the man is resting on his hands or elbows, and where the woman’s legs are placed. Actually, by the woman moving her legs from straight down, to raised, to all the way over his shoulders, she can actually change the angle of her vagina completely, making the experience completely different for both of the lovers.

Missionary position would typically be when the woman has her legs lowered, which is definitely more modest and less satisfying for most.

For intimacy purposes, the face-to-face option is a great way of experiencing closeness and being aware of your partner’s reactions at all time (although you may need to have the lights on to get these benefits, in case you were taking the modesty part too seriously). It is supposed to be a very mutual position, the ultimate lock-and-key fit for man and woman. This is a truly astounding observation to have been made by men who have zero experience with female sexuality.

It would probably be more accurate for about 70% of women to say that it is a great angle to enjoy their partner’s enjoyment, because it offers a good, superior and agile position for their men, and the woman can enjoy seeing their man’s pleasure without any chance of being distracted by their own orgasm. This position simply provides very little chance of stimulation to the clitoris, and for most women, this translates to orgasm-less penetration.

If the missionary position is the way we have internalized the basic position for sex in our culture, despite its being ideal for only half of that population, what does this say about the relationship between males and females? Perhaps it holds a little clue to the way we are taught that men should view women – from above, where his moves will determine the outcome. Now that’s not always a bad thing, retro has its charms. But there’s a lot more to intercourse than this old angle.

So leave the preachers to what they’re good at, and back at the ranch you can flip it over, twist it around, yank it across and try meeting each other on different grounds, to feel how much more liberating and rewarding sex can be.
