What His Favorite Sex Position Says About Him

Have you ever wondered why your boyfriend is so obsessed with being on the bottom? What about his love for the ever controversial 69? Here is what your boyfriend’s sex position says about his true personality…

  1. Doggy style This is apparently the most popular sex position amongst guys. A guy who claims doggy-style to be his favorite likes to know he has complete control over his life and losing said control is probably one of his greatest fears. He’s also a practical guy who doesn’t like to mess around with details—he likes to just get straight to the point and come as quickly and efficiently as possible.
  2. Reverse cowgirl Sorry to say this, but a guy who prefers reverse cowgirl is a total womanizer. There are guys who like to say they’re players as a joke and then there are guys who actually are players, and this guy is the latter. He’s been with a ton of women and has thus gotten really good at reverse cowgirl. Hmm, now it all makes sense…
  3. Girl on top The guy who prefers you to be on top is a straight up mama’s boy. There, I said it. He grew up getting exactly what he wanted whenever he wanted it. He was always smothered with attention growing up and now he has no problem letting the girl do all the work while he gets his just rewards. Most guys would feel guilty, making you go on top overtime but this guy seems to think he deserves it. Sigh… Hopefully one day he’ll grow up into a mature, giving lover.
  4. Missionary You’re probably expecting me to call the guy who likes missionary boring or predictable, but au contraire! The missionary man values intimacy and affection over anything else. He lets people in easily and has no problem revealing his true feelings to his partner. He’s a total sweetheart and wears his heart on his sleeve. He’s basically the cutest, nicest guy ever. Always treasure the missionary man in your life.
  5. Tree pose Excuse my creative names for these sex positions, but I just thought “tree” when I imagined this one in my head. So picture your back against the wall and him holding your leg up while thrusting upwards. The tree-pose guy has a go-getter attitude, always looking to improve himself and striving to be his best. He’s the CEO of this list—someone who will work hard for the money… and your orgasm.
  6. Spooning A common favorite of the lazy man. This guy is what we would call a deadbeat. Though adorable, he spends a lot of his time doing nothing but either getting high or playing video games (or both). It’s no wonder his favorite sex position requires the minimum amount of effort. It’s also the perfect position for him to fall asleep immediately after.
  7. Standing doggy When I say “standing doggy,” I mean him penetrating you from behind while you’re both standing. The guy who prefers this position is a bit too obsessed with sex for his own good. He’s been watching porn since the dawn of dial-up and tends to take on the dominant, pornstar-esque role in the bedroom. He boasts about his high sex drive and likes to remind you how attracted he is to you. When he’s in sex mode, he kinda turns into this whole other person—and it’s actually kinda hot.
  8. 69 Sorry, but if this is your guy’s favorite sex position, he’s kind of a creeper. He didn’t get laid a lot in his early years and was probably a late bloomer, thus never finding out how much girls actually hate this position. Oh well, he’ll figure it out eventually.
  9. Legs up This is basically every woman’s favorite position because it hits the G-spot just right. Picture yourself laying on your back with your legs over his shoulders so he can get that extra steep angle. It’s just…the best. The legs up guy knows what’s up. He’s cultured, intelligent, and well-traveled. He likes to have deep and meaningful discussions about the universe and is often times the most interesting person in the room. He marches to the beat of his own drum and also knows how to give you a mind-blowing orgasm.
  10. Sleeping dog Picture yourself lying face down on the bed and him face down directly on top of you. It’s like a sex sandwich. You’re kinda getting crushed by his weight but he obviously loves it. This guy what we like to call an attention whore. He’s always the loudest in the room and feeds off of other people’s approval. In fact, he’s often so occupied with everyone else and trying to be the center of attention that he forgets you’re even there. He’s forgotten about you several times, even when you’re having sex, and it’s seriously annoying. You’ll eventually get tired of hiding in his shadow—trust me.
