Woman on Top Sexual Positions - Part I
If you're a man, you'll have spent a fair amount of time thinking about this - it's the stuff of fantasy!
To have her on top, giving you pleasure, watching her body as she moves up and down your penis, slowly teasing you, watching you seductively as she moves, controlling her movements and savoring her power as she keeps you in the relentless grip of her vagina.
Yes, it's a good sexual position for fantasy, for sure - but does it live up to its billing?
As always, the best sexual position for you and your partner is a matter of individual preference, but it's fair to say that making love with the woman on top is very popular with both men and women - and for some very good reasons.
You may find the coital alignment technique helps you have a better sex life, and in particular it can help women to achieve orgasm during intercourse.
Men find this sexual technique exciting because it's less often used by couples than the man on top position - and so it produces a different set of sensations as you make love.
And it's restful, so no matter how much you as a man like thrusting, it gives you a more relaxing experience.
The techniques a woman can employ as she skillfully rides you can tease you and keep you on the edge of orgasm until the sexual tension seems almost unbearable, and all the while you have the chance to see her breasts or buttocks, depending whether she is facing towards or away from you.
And for a woman, the position has some great advantages.
She can control the pace and rhythm of sex; she can get a sense of her sexual power; she can see the pleasure she gives her man; and she can take the dominant role during sex.
You'll see a lot of material written about how these woman on top techniques can produce orgasm.
Yet in reality they don't, because most men come too quickly. Since woman on top sexual techniques allow you both to get away from the idea that sex is something in which a man has to be dominant, it can be good for the relationship, bringing a greater sense of equality and enabling men who are secure about their own masculinity to relax and stop feeling they have to be "in charge" during sex.
This isn't complicated! If you're a man lying on your back with an erection, and your female partner is straddling you, then the basic variation is whether she faces towards your face or your feet as she inserts your penis into her vagina.
Many men find their penis is bent uncomfortably if their partner is facing towards their feet - in fact, it may not even be possible for you to insert your penis into her if it points straight up towards your chest when it's erect.
But as always - think of the fun you can have trying out this sex position!
As you can see in the pictures above (which, by the way, all expand if you click on them), a woman has plenty of opportunity to take a dominant role during woman on top sex.
And since her body is not constrained by her partner's, as it may be during man on top sex, she has the freedom to move into the position that best suits her and gives her the greatest pleasure.
Variations on the woman on top sexual position
The woman lies on top
Woman on top sexual positions can give you a whole variety of sensations, depending on the angle at which the woman lies on top of the man.
What's best for you and your partner will be something you only discover when you try this position, since the angle and shape of each couple's vagina and penis are slightly different.
But a good starting point is to have the female partner lie on top of the male partner with her chest close to his.
The physical feelings here can be very strong. Their intensity will depend chiefly on how closely the woman keeps her legs together.
If she lies with her legs inside the man's and keeps them very close together, his penis will be squeezed in a way that is hard to achieve in any other sexual position, and though he is likely to ejaculate quickly, the feelings will be stronger for the woman as well.
For a woman who likes the sense of penetration and the feeling of her man's penis inside her, this is a powerful experience.
Obviously sex will last longer if there is less pressure on the man's penis, as there will be when she keeps her legs further apart:
Other variations on woman on top positions
Variations on the woman on top positions are all about the angle of the penis in the vagina, and the fact that the woman gets different sensations when the man penetrates her from different angles.
These exciting techniques can be just as powerful for the man because different positions stimulate different parts of his penis and also put different degrees of pressure on it.
Why not try it out - you can have a great deal of fun and be very playful in experimenting with these different sexual positions!
Other sexual techniques
The woman on top faces towards the man
As you can see, in this sexual position the woman has a great deal of flexibility in the angle at which she leans on her man.
Each way of making love will provide deliciously different sensations for her vagina and his penis, and in some cases the different techniques also provide added pleasure for both partners because they can see his penis entering her, or see each other's buttocks, or her breasts.
Another enjoyable thing about this position is that he or she can play with her clitoris (and his balls) to make this even more pleasurable.
Having her on top while still lying face to face has some additional benefits: for instance, if he is very heavy, or if for any reason deep penetration is unwelcome, it is simply a more comfortable sexual technique.
If she kneels astride her man as he lies on his back under her, she has the choice of timing and rhythm and she can also control the depth to which she is penetrated.
She can rub her own clitoris either with a finger or against her partner. Although most women prefer making love on their backs, there's no doubt that the second most favorite position for sex is this one.
Men like it too because they can pass their hands around her buttocks and freely feel the movements of their penis. And a man can increase her stimulation by stroking her labia and her anus.
This sexual technique involves a lovers' tender embrace
It's always possible to rest during your lovemaking, to talk, to look at each other, and to feel the sexual energy moving between you.
One sexual position where you can not only do all of this but also look deep into each other's eyes is the one shown below, which is a true lovers' embrace, a position in which you can discover exactly how your partner is feeling and see just what he or she would like next.
Resting will allow your sexual energy to accumulate, so that when you do finally go for your orgasms, they may well be much more intense than they would otherwise be.
You can also sit up unsupported if you put your arms around each other.
While you do this, she can clench her vaginal muscles around his penis, and he can twitch his penis inside her to provide enough stimulation to keep his erection.
