The missionary position is one of the most common sex positions and is both intimate and pleasurable for both parties, yet it’s hardly what comes to mind when you think about mind-blowing sex. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t change things up with this tried-and-tested position. By just doing a few tricks, you can make the missionary position more interesting and fun, and it will be even easier for you to get an orgasm!
Why you should go missionary
The missionary position is a favourite of many couples – and why not? It’s intimate, allowing for extreme eye and body contact; plus, it doesn’t require much physical effort, at least on your part. And, unlike other positions that require you to contort your body or be an acrobat, The Missionary is pretty basic, which is good news for those of you who are neither fit nor flexible.
The not-so-great part…
But this popular man-on-top position does have a couple of drawbacks. For many women, climaxing this way isn’t always possible through penetration alone. For the most part, you’ve probably found that you’ve had to stimulate your clitoris manually while your man was inside of you in order to achieve orgasm. This can get tiresome after a while. The Missionary can also get a bit boring if you do it often enough (how many times have you stared at the ceiling while your guy was on top of you, and wondered how much longer you would have to lay there?) Scroll next for eight ways to spice up The Missionary and, while you’re at it, increase your chances of climaxing.
