Classic missionary position

The missionary position is a sexual position for intercourse in which the man lies on top of the woman and they are facing each other.

The Classic missionary position, also known as the man-on-top position, is a sex position in which a woman lies on her back and a man lies on top of her while they engage in vaginal intercourse while facing each other. Other sexual activities, such as anal sex, can also be performed in this position. It is most frequently linked with heterosexual sexual activity, but same-sex partners also utilise it.

The most popular sex position is that of a missionary, however it is not universally viewed as the most desirable. It can include sexual penetration or non-penetrative sex (such as intercrural sex), and its penile-vaginal element is an example of ventro-ventral (front-to-back) reproductive activity. Variations in the posture allow for varied degrees of clitoral stimulation, penetration depth, woman participation, and orgasm likelihood and quickness.

Couples who love the romantic qualities of ample skin-to-skin contact, opportunity to look into each other’s eyes, kiss and caress each other typically choose the missionary position. The position is also thought to be conducive to reproduction. The missionary position allows the guy to control the rhythm and depth of pelvic thrusting during sexual activity. Moving her hips or pushing her feet on the bed, or squeezing him closer with her arms or legs, the woman can also thrust against him. Late in pregnancy, or when the woman want to have more control over the rhythm and depth of penetration, the position is less acceptable.
