Doggy-Style: Five Important Things To Remember

I can't speak for men everywhere, but I'd venture to say that Doggy-Style falls somewhere in the top 3 as far as favorite sex positions go. From what I understand, the ladies love it too! One of the major bonuses is that it doesn't require a bed. Hell, you can even do it on a staircase.

Here's the thing though, it can definitely be pretty intense for both parties involved and because of that, it's important to keep a few things in mind not only for your lady's benefit, but for yours too!

Hold On Tight

Doggy-Style, while amazing, isn't really a, "look Ma, no hands" position. Why? Because slippage is likely to occur. If you don't know what I mean by, slippage, let me paint a picture. You're in the middle of a rhythm with zero means of keeping your bearings, when all of a sudden you slip out and hit yourself on your partner. The best you can hope for is hitting the softer part of her butt, but God forbid you hit her tail bone, things are going to go from pleasure to pain (not in a good way) pretty fast.

Enhance Her Pleasure

As mentioned moments ago, holding on tight is crucial, but how many hands do you really need to do that? I'd say the average man can hold a woman by the hip with one hand, leaving the other hand free to explore. That being said, reaching around to touch her is always a solid idea. It may not be the easiest position for clitoral stimulation, but if it's doable, why not be a gentleman and give it a shot?

Slow Down

Is there and time and place to go fast? For sure! But because Doggy is so intense, you're not likely to last very long that way. Be sure to switch up your speed often to ensure that the whole ordeal isn't shorter than a YouTube advertisement. Of course, asking her what she likes throughout is important too. If she happens to say faster at a time when you know you can't handle it, just tell her! Nobody wants sex to be shorter.

To Pull Or Not To Pull?

There's no unwritten rule that says all women like to have their hair-pulled. Additionally, there's no unwritten rule that says all guys like to do it! Just because you see it in porn, doesn't mean it's necessary during Doggy-Style. You'll be just fine without it. However, if both of you do happen to be into it, be aggressive enough that it's pleasurable but not so much so that you'll rip a hair extension out.

99.9% Effective

It would be irresponsible not to advocate safe sex. So, in the spirit of that, I'm going to assume everyone is a using a condom. However, this will apply to birth control too. For condoms, there's a higher likelihood that they'll break/stay in place during Doggy-Style. It's not too scientific, just a matter of movement. As for birth control, it all goes back to the intensity of the act. It's a lot harder to pull out during Doggy-Style, than say, Missionary. Not suggesting that other positions don't feel good, it's just difficult in the heat-of-the-moment from that angle.

As with all things sex, it will only be as good as you want it be. So long as you're open and communicative with your partner, I have no doubt that Doggy-Style will become a regular in your lineup.
