12 reasons why missionary is the best sexual position there is
When it comes to sexual positions, missionary gets a pretty bum deal.
It’s not as intense as doggy, as ‘sexy’ as the reverse cowgirl or as exotic as the lotus; it’s the comfy sweater of sexual positions.
However, while you may think yourself a bit tame for favouring the missionary above others, actually, there are plenty of reasons why it is the best sexual position there is.
From the intensity of eye contact to the G-spot arousal potential, here are 12 reasons why missionary is the best position there is.
1. It maximizes skin contact
The missionary position isn’t just about hammering away to get the job done.
Done properly, it’s about using your whole body to rub and arouse your partner, which you’ll find is far from boring.
2. Eye gazing
Intense eye contact while having sex can be electric, and it’s one of the most underrated acts of ‘foreplay’ there is.
And the missionary position will give you an abundance of opportunities for it.
3. Whispering sweet nothings
And when a romantic gaze turns into a stare off, you’re in the right position to whisper sweet nothings (or utter filth) into the ear of your partner.
What’s not to love about a good snog?
A good snog during sex? Boom.
5. It’s one of the best positions for clitoral stimulation
As your partner’s pubic area is in the perfect position to rub directly onto your clit, the missionary position is one of the best positions to ensure a woman has more chances of reaching orgasm.
6. There’s space for extras
Haven’t quite mastered the hands-free rubbing technique?
Try a cock ring or mini vibrator – missionary makes sure you really get your money’s worth from a number of handy little sex toys.
7. It hits the G-spot
Not only does missionary mean more clit action, it also means, with the help of a well-positioned pillow, your G-spot will get in on the party too.
8. Your man looks hot
Heavy, sweaty, primal.
Check, check, check.
9. It allows for size
While doggy style means deeper penetration, this level of intensity isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, which is where missionary steps in.
There’s enough depth for substantial sensation, without leaving you short for breath – in the wrong way.
10. It can be naughty
And is the perfect position for a bit of consensual domination.
Missionary doesn’t have to be boring – in fact, nothing is sexier than being tied up on your back while your partner takes full advantage of your submission.
11. It hides your wobbly bits
Which is always a bonus.
And it even gives you an advantage with a bit of extra padding, because no-one likes a bruised hip bone.
12. It’s great if you’re feeling lazy
Because lets face it, when it’s half eleven and you’ve got to be up in six hours for a bi-annual area meting, the thought of being horizontal with your eyes partially closed is always going to be a massive turn on.
