As the pictures show, there are many, many positions for a couple to play with when they make love this way.
Each has its own special merits: but since men are so visual, they tend to like the ones where they can see what’s happening as the couple make love!
For a man, the sight of himself penetrating his partner can be very arousing! (If a woman enjoys seeing this too, she will be best placed to see it in the woman on top position.)
It can be very sensuous for the partners when the woman is almost sitting in the man’s lap as they make love.
From a visual perspective this position doesn’t do much for a woman unless she likes the look of their wallpaper! Obviously she won’t be able to see much of her lover in this position.
On the other hand, it can be exciting not having to maintain eye contact with your lover. In this position it doesn’t matter what faces you pull or how your breasts and stomach look.
The woman can simply relax into the sensations of her body without having to do anything for him anymore.
Additionally, she’s still got use of her hands in this position, especially when she’s lying down, and she can employ them for herself to best effect.
Alternatively, this is a good position to combine with your favorite sexual fantasy.
Rear entry sex is great for role play, when a couple want to explore dominance and receptiveness during their lovemaking. This is especially good for men who want to explore their feeling of dominance or manifest something special.
That’s not to say that men are always the dominant partner in lovemaking, far from it, since for any couple, the balance of dominance and submissiveness (or if you prefer, the roles of active and passive partner, or giver and accepter of sexual energy), will vary throughout a session of lovemaking, and from one session to the next.
But rear entry sex positions are good one for men to feel their sexual power – and, as we explain below, it’s a position in which women can do so too!
I think all sexual positions allow for different aspects of dominance or receptiveness. Rear entry can also make women feel powerful as they are possibly more able to unleash pure lust within themselves.
Unfortunately many women feel rear entry is a bit of an impersonal sex position, fine perhaps if both partners feel very horny, but maybe not so romantic or loving in the normal course of things.
Other women say that they feel like a sex object when they take part in rear entry sex, so maybe a lot of women only do it to please their partner.

Unfortunately, some women may feel uncomfortable with rear entry sex. This may partly be due to culture and upbringing, which still gives women the message that it is not OK to be overtly and fully sexual.
However, the position in itself contributes to the sense of disconnectedness for women as it does not allow for eye contact.
Also, she does not get to see her partner, which will make it easier for her attention to drift away to what she needs to buy at the supermarket tomorrow.
Also, during classic doggy style with both partners on their hands and knees body contact between both partners may only be through their genitals.
This may suit men, who are very centered on their penises, but may leave women fairly bored as the rest of their body does not get any stimulation.
The man can rectify this by lying on top of his lover or holding on and caressing his lover with his hands.
Also he could place his face close to her neck and play with her neck, back and ears, which can feel very connecting and intimate for her.
Even so, women can enjoy rear entry sex positions because they get the opportunity to fully express their raw sexuality, to feel powerfully feminine and very sexual. In rear entry sex, a woman can really enjoy a sense of “being taken” from behind.
She’s also able to move very powerfully, finding the movements of her hips and pelvis which most stimulate her G-spot – thrusting movements which can provide great pleasure to her partner, as well.
As always, some adjustment of the two partner’s heights may be needed to make penetration easy. If he’s standing and she’s kneeling, she can raise or lower her hips until the couple are well-matched.
Feel free to go for it girls! The goddess within is never that far from the surface.
The power and raw sexuality of rear entry sex can be highly enjoyable. But the slightly impersonal nature of it can be off-putting for some people: so, if you want to have a greater sense of connection with your partner, simply place a mirror in front of you both.
This is highly erotic, and it also allows you to look into each other’s eyes as you make love.
I am not sure this would do it for women, as it seems a rather male centered/visual idea to me. It sounds like the worst of eye contact, i.e. feeling watched, with the least level of emotional connection.
I would guess most women would rather go with closing their eyes and having their lover kiss or nibble their neck.
One of the great advantages of rear entry sex for a woman is that the penis can hit her sensitive G-spot. In fact, depending on the exact size and shape of a couple’s penis and vagina, a woman may even find there is too much friction.
If this happens to you, try using a little artificial lubricant (one of the water based ones are best, like Probe or Astroglide) or change position slightly so that your partner’s penis enters at a slightly different angle.
More unusual positions such as rear entry with both partners lying face down with the man on top of his partner can be reserved for special occasions when you both feel incredibly aroused and horny, or perhaps when you just want to try something new.
Rear entry sex summarized
Powerful and exciting for most men, quite primal in fact.
Powerful and exciting to women, who may need some practice to unleash the goddess within.
It’s a powerful and arousing position for most men. The sight of his penis moving in and out of her body, with his hands free to explore her body or touch her clitoris or breasts, can be an intensely exciting experience. Many men reach orgasm very quickly in this position – and it can feel very satisfying to so so!
Men seem to be programmed at a deep level to be aroused by the sight of their partner’s buttocks, and it’s probably this primal quality which gives a sense of deep satisfaction to rear entry sex.
And for a woman who’s feeling aroused and wants to enjoy an experience of lustful sex, this position can be great, as she can behave sexily and feel very wanton.
That may be quite liberating for women who have a degree of sexual repression. And a woman may be able to reach orgasm during lovemaking if her partner (or she) can stimulate her clitoris or G-spot for long enough (the first by hand, the second with his penis as he makes love).
It isn’t good for a man with a premature ejaculation problem, that’s for sure, as many men get so aroused. And if a man has a large penis, the depth of his penetration may be uncomfortable for his partner unless she is really aroused.
Allows her plenty of room to move and be energetic. Allows her to really give herself to her sense of lust. Doesn’t cost that much energy for both partners.
She has got her hands free to stimulate herself and doesn’t need to worry about him losing interest. By closing her legs she can control the intensity of sensations and the deepness of his thrusts.
Women may need some practice to really let go into their own bodily sensations. If you are not feeling turned on it can get boring. If you are feeling insecure you will have to handle it by yourself as you won’t be able to see your lover.
Deep penetration can touch the cervix and the thrusting can impact on your lower back. Finally, it’s harder to slow your partner down in this position and he might get carried away and ejaculate before you want him to.
