How to Have the Best Missionary Sex Ever We're defying the 'missionary is boring' narrative right now.

For some frustrating reason the missionary sex position is often written off as the easiest – and therefore the most boring – sex position of all time. First, it’s as boring as you make it…and secondly, it’s a classic for a reason.

Polls actually indicate that it was voted the third most popular – after doggy and cowgirl – with 12% of couples choosing it as their favorite. Today we’re sharing some easy tips for having great, safe, and enjoyable, missionary position sex.

Skin-on-skin contact during missionary sex.

One of the beauties of missionary sex is that it allows for lots of skin contact, so go for maximum skin contact. Pull them close, and feel your chests pressed together.

Keep it moving.

The missionary position doesn’t mean you have to lie still as your partner moves. Try bending your knees, planting your feet on the mattress (or ground) and moving your hips. You can rock your hips back and forth or move them in circles.

Keep it playful.

Remember, approximately 75 per cent of people with vaginas can’t climax purely through intercourse. Good news – the missionary position is particularly well suited to this. Simply reach down and stroke yourself while your partner penetrates you.

Try some toys.

Sex toys are so much fun, and also make partnered sex more exciting and varied. Try introducing a small bullet vibrator into your lovemaking. Either of you can use it to stimulate your clitoris before, and during penetration. (Read: How to Choose a Vibrator.) (Watch: How to Introduce Sex Toys Into the Bedroom.)

Put a ring on it.

It’s also worth experimenting with one of the most popular couples’ sex toys – a vibrating love ring, aka cock ring during missionary sex. This is worn around the penis during sex and it restricts blood flow, giving the person harder and longer erections. It contains a small bullet vibrator on top to maximize your pleasure, by vibrating against your clitoris while your partner grinds. Be sure to use lots of lubeso you’re both comfortable.

Keep eye contact.

This has to be the most important plus for missionary sex when it comes to intimacy. One fun way to add real intimacy is to try to hold eye contact during orgasm when you are climaxing together.

Kick it up with kink.

Without the ability to move your arms, or see what is happening, every tiny touch will feel more intense. Introduce some handcuffs and/or a blindfold, just to add an element of surprise. (Read: How to Introduce King Into Your Relationship.)

Express how you’re feeling.

We all know by now that communication is the one true key to great sex. But missionary position is the perfect one for speaking softly to each other.
