Woman on top sex positions

sex positions and sexual techniques and positionsThe first picture shows what we all think of as the woman on top position for sex: she is sitting astride her partner while facing him, as he lies flat on the bed, his legs close together or further apart as he chooses.

She may lean back to increase the pressure on the sensitive parts of her vagina which she likes to be stimulated.

His ability to move is rather limited in this position, but he can make little hip thrusts to drive his penis deeper into her body.

She has been able to get to this point by riding his penis as she leaned forward, pressing her clitoris onto the area around the base of his penis as she moved her vagina up and down his penile shaft.

For men who experience a long delay before they ejaculate during sex, a condition known as retarded ejaculation, there is a self help treatment program on this website. For men who ejaculate too quickly, there is advice on delaying ejaculation and overcoming premature ejaculation here.

 

The photos shown on this page so far have all featured the more usual form of woman on top, where the woman has her legs outside the man's. But it is equally possible for the woman to keep her legs inside the man's and so tighten her vagina. Though he may not be able to penetrate her as deeply, this will increase the friction on his penis and may well send him into orgasm much more quickly. It's also a useful trick for men who have a short and/or thin penis.

In the photos below, the woman is demonstrating the two extremes of woman on top sex positions: laid back and fully forward!

While the fully forward position is very relaxing and intimate, allowing the couple to kiss and cuddle, it doesn't really let either of them move their hips very much. In fact, if the woman wishes to ride her man's penis, as in the second photo, she needs to lean forward  and adopt a more squatting position in which she can move up and down his penis.

The major variation in how a couple get together in woman on top sex is all about the woman facing away from her partner. This series of pictures shows how, from a starting position where she is sitting in the man's lap, she can move gradually to a position in which she is lying full-length on his body, head up or head down. 

In the first three images below, she is enjoying the sight of her man's penis entering her body, stimulating her clitoris as they make love.

In both the pictures here, the woman is leaning backwards, but if you examine them carefully you will see that she has changed the physical sensations for them both by altering the position and angle of her legs.

In this position it can be difficult for a man with a short penis to keep much of his penile shaft inside his partner, but he can still experience great pleasure as his penis is effectively massaged by her labia. Obviously this is a good position for men with a long penis who may otherwise cause their partner some discomfort by thrusting too deeply.
