As I’ve previously mentioned, altering your positions in the bedroom is one of the easiest ways to recapture the romantic spark. The most basic of positions can be changed slightly to provide different sensations and orgasms. There are even ways to modify the doggy position, which is one of my all time favorites.
Though doggy style is considered a male dominant position, a benefit for women is the ability to push back against the man’s thrusts, as well as control over grinding motions on the man’s penis. Men have the advantage of a great view, plus they get both hands free for all sorts of enjoyable activities, from holding his lover’s waist to rubbing her clitoris, or even pulling her hair or spanking her… if she’s into that sort of sex play.
The first way to modify doggy is by the man pulling the woman up towards him, so her back is close to vertical. This frees up her hands, while allowing the man the opportunity to pull her close. The angle of penetration is very different here – not as deep as regular doggy style.
Alternatively, when the woman is slightly bent over face down in doggy, she isn’t supporting her body quite as much and is able to easily stimulate her clitoris or his testicles. It also gives her the opportunity to incorporate the use of sex toys on herself or her partner.
A completely flat doggy style provides an amazing feeling. The woman can now squeeze her legs together to increase the friction and tightness. This in turn forces her pubic bone and clitoris down, allowing for grinding.
For those with the desire to try something more acrobatic, there is the wheelbarrow doggy. In this position, the woman starts off on all fours on the edge of the bed. As her lover enters her from behind, he raises her legs to wrap them around his waist. He is now able to control the angle and the depth of penetration. This requires more upper body strength from the man, but can also be a great substitute for going to the gym.
The doggy position can also travel off the bed. The standing doggy is great for sex in the shower or during a quickie in public. Couples can experiment with putting one of the woman’s legs up. This position allows for increased clitoral stimulation and gives the man a great view.
Standing doggy style can also be accomplished with the woman on both of her legs, but bending over something, like a desk or the back of a couch. This variation provides a feeling of submission some women are very fond of. It’s also a great way for the man to hold his hips in place for a nice, rhythmic, dependable thrusting. The woman can spread her legs far apart or hold them close together to change the feeling.
While doggy style is commonly associated as the go-to position for anal sex (for a good reason), it is also a fantastic way to stimulate the clitoris and the vagina in a multitude of ways and degrees. Doggy may not offer the intimacy of the missionary position by being face-to-face, but there’s plenty of time to mix in both positions during sex.
