6 Things About Missionary Sex That Make It The Best Sexual Position
“Oh, it’s so vanilla”.
“It doesn’t feel sexy”, etc.
How many times have people used these old grievances to describe missionary sex?
Okay, it isn’t as intense or passionate as doggy or reverse cowgirl, or any of the more exotic positions; but missionary is the sexual equivalent of a favourite winter hoodie: comfortable, familiar, and perfect for when you’re sleepily sprawled out and not keen to move very much. It’s the first position most people to jump into, before moving to cowgirl and other positions; so it’s understandable why missionary doesn’t have that ‘X’ factor other positions are known for.
That said, if a couple indulges in and attempts new techniques during sex, trying to re-write the Kama Sutra along the way, it doesn’t necessarily mean they are going to have an amazing time. Just to let you in on our li’l secret, there are a lot of people out there who enjoy good ol’ missionary sex. And there are multiple reasons why. Be it the eye contact, kissing, or just the arousal of the G-spot, here are 6 things about missionary sex that make it the best sexual position.
1. Less dangerous
We’re kidding. It’s a thing. Men actually tend to break penises either when they try out new positions, or when they are really deep into the doggy style. So, if you don’t fancy a dismembered member, missionary is your safest bet.
2. It welcomes more size
Yes, doggy-style is all about deep penetration; but just because your partner moans and grunts in that position, it doesn’t necessarily mean it is all about pleasure. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, and it’s okay. Because of this, the missionary position plays an important role. This position helps with easy penetration and it has enough depth to fit in all sizes to satisfy both parties.
3. You can kiss. A Lot!
For all the hopeless romantics out there who are suckers for kissing, the missionary position is pretty much perfect for ‘making love’ and kissing simultaneously. There are only a handful of folks out there you’d want to kiss and whisper all the sweet nothings to during sex, and missionary is the gateway to all those good things.
4. It encourages laziness
Oh, all the couch potatoes will thrive in this position. Most of the time, the person on top gets lazy too. And that’s where missionary sex comes to the rescue, as there’s not much work when you’re at the bottom. Also, in this position, both your bodies come together and match up, leading to a lot of clitoral stimulation waiting to happen. This is basically the child’s pose in the world of sex. It’s relaxed, comforting, and satisfying.
5. Great position for G-spot stimulation
Yes, G-spot is real and not a myth. Along with clitoral stimulation, G-spot stimulation is just a pillow away. All one needs to do is slide a pillow beneath the hips. This allows the penis-havers or strap-on owners to penetrate you, which then connects to the G-spot, leading the way to orgasm-land.
6. You can be submissive for a change
Although missionary can seem tame or restrictive, if you want to spice it up, you can play with the power dynamic. This is an excellent position if you fancy being tied or blindfolded. Also, if your hands are free, you can spank your partner’s booty, too, which can then lead to your partner teaching you some manners.
Yes, missionary sex does get a lot of stick for being the most vanilla. But, that doesn’t make it lame. It is, in fact, the most loyal, comfortable, and intimate position there is. You might think that this is an ode to missionary sex. And guess what? Maybe, it is. *wink wink*
So, there is a lot to appreciate about missionary sex. It book-ends our sexual lives: no matter all the twisting and turning and arrangement in-between, for most people, missionary will be their first position, and, in the infirmity of old age, will probably be their last position. Most sensual lovemaking scenes in the movies are stylishly lit simulations of missionary. It’s time, therefore, that we re-thought our position on this old position.
