I like to think of doggy as the Scott Disick of sex positions. At first, we all hated Scott. And like Scott, doggy sucks at first. The whole thing is just uncomfortable and kind of awkward. But once you really understand how to do doggy right, you may just love it more than—dare I say it—you stan Lord Disick.
I kindly challenge anyone with a vagina who doesn't like doggy-style sex to seriously reconsider. I get that it's not the most intimate of positions—you're facing away from your partner, after all—and it's not exactly relaxing your arms get tired, and your knees can take a reaaal beating. But when done correctly, doggy-style is incredibly satisfying. Why not remind them how lucky they are? Plus, for some women, being on all fours and entered from behind—the most basic definition of doggy, which obviously comes from the way dogs themselves mate—can actually be mentally stimulating, too. On one hand, the lack of pressure of staring into your partner's eyes can make it easier to orgasm , says Nan Wise, PhD, a licensed psychotherapist and certified sex therapist, and author of the forthcoming Why Good Sex Matters. On the other, you might enjoy feeling dominated by your partner—it's a gentle foray into kinky or BDSM sex.
