While it may be the most vanilla of sex positions, the tried-and-true missionary position is as good for you as you’d expect. No major risks (or excitement) for any of the parties involved. But Dr. Larit does recommend that the woman wrap her legs around her partner, you know, to prevent from spreading her hips too wide.
Sex, pain pills, and rock ‘n’ roll
Perhaps a little selfishly, I asked the doc what he thought of the “rock ‘n’ roll” position, aka the “Deep Stick,” which is when the man is on his knees on top of the woman, and her legs are straddled over his shoulders. Turns out the worst thing about this position is probably those ridiculous names. This position presents no issues for the dudes; however, women may want to exercise slight caution. Ladies will want to make sure their lower back is flat on some sort of cushioned surface or being supported in their partner’s thigh area. And for those of you into heavy metal, mind how hard and fast you’re keeping the beat. If a woman’s back isn’t being properly supported, “all that hard back and forth won’t be good,” Dr. Larit says.
