The doggy position has become one of the most popular positions for couples in search of intense pleasure. This position is often said to be the best for reaching the famous G spot. Here’s a quick look at a position loaded with fantasy...
A little history
This position has been practiced since ancient times. Its name comes from the fact that the women is on all fours like a dog with the man on his knees penetrating from behind - hence the animal connotations. This position is the subject of many fantasies, especially male!
The technique
This position does not please everyone, especially romantic types, because there's no looking lovingly into each other's eyes and no passionate kissing. The woman gets down on all fours and the man holds her from behind on his knees, bending his knees in relation to how the woman spreads hers. The wider apart her legs are the lower he must be. He holds her hips and then penetrates her.
Sensations
The sensations are intense because penetration is deep. It’s also said that this position favours stimulation of the G spot. Penetration can also be made on the sides of the vagina as well as at the top or bottom by choosing the angle of attack, which means that the sensations can be very diverse!
Advantages
The man has easy access to the clitoris with his hands during penetration so can add to her pleasure. His hands are also free to roam all over her body. The doggy style position is also ideal for multiple orgasms (both vaginal and clitoral). It also allows partners to let go and abandon themselves to pleasure without being concerned by their facial expressions! Without the-face-to face situation, more concentration is given to feeling and sensation rather than how you (or him) are looking.
Drawbacks
The doggy position has provoked a lot of criticism; some people raise concerns about the dominator/dominated nature of the position. Others talk about its animalistic side. It’s true that the man takes control, but provided both partners are happy it can be a source of great pleasure. However, if the man is too rough, the woman can become weak at the arms and unstable if he doesn't control his rhythm, intensity and depth. Be aware that penetration can sometimes be painful for women if the act is too rough.
The best moment to do it
Doggy style sex can be enjoyed whenever, depending on your mood. Some couples choose the position when they want a wild, fiery, spontaneous session. It’s not often used for first time sex because it could worry the woman if she doesn’t know her partner or her body well, or if she is young.
