Fun Sex Position: Missionary Modification

This position is an adaptation of missionary. It is somewhat similar to the Coital Alignment Technique (CAT) but differs in some ways, such as the bottom partner’s leg position.

Missionary does NOT have to be boring.

In this adaptation, the penetrating partner slides his body forward/upward more such that his/her partners are past the bottom partner’s shoulders (closer to the bottom partner’s face). This primes the position for pelvic grinding which may be particularly key if the bottom partner is a woman and enjoys having her clitoris stimulated at the same time she is having vaginal sex. (This can make it easier for a woman have an orgasm during sexual intercourse).


You can find my drawing of this super fun sex position after the jump.
