The pleasures of missionary position

accreditation

Experimenting with different sex positions is great, but it’s not a sin to do it missionary style. Screen Shot 2016-05-10 at 9.05.38 AM Here are some surprising benefits of the most classic way to making love.

  • Rather than the woman-on-top position, the missionary is perfect for hiding those tit bits that make you feel conscious about your body;
  • The intimacy is great. Your bodies are literally attached to each other giving you closeness. The skin to skin contact can be stimulating and comforting at the same time. Plus, your eyes are locked on each other, and you can whisper a few naughty things;
  • The pentration is deeper, which many women find pleasurable and orgasmic. There are erogenous zones deep in your cervix that are stimulated, which can result in a glorious orgasm;
  • Missionary is the best position if you’re trying to conceive a child. This position helps sperm move fast towards your cervix; and
  • Missionary is not as boring as many think. You can spice it up with a few variations – put your feet on his shoulders and let him stimulate your feet, use your hips to move with him, lie on your side, lift your pelvis off the bed, move from the bed to a chair.
Fun fact: Ever wondered why it’s called the missionary position in the first place? It sounds a tad bit wrong, right? As you may have thought, the position is related to religion and it is said that Christian missionaries believed that it was the only way to have sex.
