Sexual Positions and Pleasure

Having Better Sex

The average man is ready and willing for intercourse as soon as his erection is complete. The woman is not ready so soon unless she comes to the occasion after a considerable period of accumulated desire which has reached a point of actual passion.

Most women will require from several minutes to a half-hour of cultivation even when they are quite willing to start. Some women like to be surprised by the eager caresses of a passionate husband and say that they are more quickly made ready by such behavior on. his part than in any other manner.

When both husband and wife are ready, the next step is to assume else proper sexual positions for completing the act. Any position is proper which permits full satisfaction for both parties. All parts of the body can be made to contribute to sexual pleasure without giving offense to the taste or feelings of either partner.

How to communicate about sexual issues

Not every position is equally appropriate for every couple. The slant of the vagina, the high or low placement of the clitoris on the pubic bone, the amount of fatty tissue on the inside of the thighs, the comparative length of the two bodies, the length and slant of the erect penis, and various other factors may serve to make one position more or less desirable than another.

Of the almost innumerable positions which have been successfully used through the ages the following, are among the more important. Bear in mind that penis size, especially if the man’s dick is small, may be a determining factor in how much satisfaction a couple get for sex.


This is probably the most usual position in Europe and the United States. The woman lies on her back with knees drawn up and spread apart so as to give easy access. he may support himself on one arm to start with as he guides the penis into the vaginal opening with his free hand, being careful not to press too hard until he is sure he has properly located the entrance.

Sometimes in this matter the woman will have to assist him, at least until he has become more familiar with the female anatomy. After vaginal penetration has been made lie lies upon her in her arms. She will not find it difficult to bear his weight against her and will be able to kiss and be freely kissed as she wishes.

Even men who are much taller than their wives seldom find any difficulty at this point, for most of a man’s tallness is in his longer thigh bones rather than in his body from the hips upward. To avoid possible fatigue, some couples, after entrance has been made, shift position so that when the woman straightens her right leg the man, leaving his right leg between both of hers, puts his left one outside her right, and rolls over onto his left side facing her.

This takes most of the weight off the woman but does not hinder maintaining a good connection, and leaves his right arm free to caress his wife or to do any other needful thing. Should the man desire to return to the full man-above position at any time, he can easily do so.

Here the husband lies on his back while the wife kneels astride his pelvis and, after inserting his penis in her vagina, lies facing toward him as in the man-above position. Some couples make the entrance in the man-above position and then roll over to the woman-above position.

Now and then a woman finds that she is much more likely to get her orgasm in this position than in any other. If the husband can hold his erection for a reasonable length of time, say from three to ten minutes or more, the wife can make just those movements which are most likely to stimulate her and at that speed which is most to her liking.

She can feel when the clitoris is in proper contact and does not have to depend on the more or less random efforts of her husband as he attempts to stimulate her while bringing on his own climax. This is when he must know how to maintain control. Other couples find it an agreeable variation, especially at those times when the wife feels a bit aggressive and comes to the experience on her own initiative and is eager to play with her husband.


There are many of these, but probably the most practical is where the man lies on his left side with his left leg at a right angle with his body, or drawn up at an acute angle.

The wife lies on her right side facing him with the hollow of her waistline across the man’s left thigh and tier upper leg above the man’s right leg.

In this position the entrance is made by either the man’s or the woman’s guiding the erect penis into the vaginal opening. Not every couple find this position one which suits their bodily proportions but some prefer it above all others.


There are two of these: one in which the husband lies on his back and the wife sits astride him with her weight on his pubic bone and resting, her back against his drawn-up knees after she has inserted his penis in her vagina. In this position she can easily regulate the movements to suit her pleasure.

The other position is one where the husband sits on a low stool, about a foot in height, and his wife sits on his lap facing her legs resting on the floor. In this position both can make such movements as they desire and each is free to embrace and fondle the other as in the preceding positions.


These may be arranged by the couple’s lying on their sides or with the wife in a kneeling position.

In the side position the wife lies on her side and the husband approaches from the rear, being careful to get low enough so that the penis enters as far as possible into the vagina. The wife raises her upper leg and the husband puts his between her two so as to make a closer connection and so that she may hold him in place more readily and prevent disconnection.

Some make use of this method in the kneeling position, the wife resting on hands and knees, while the man approaches from the rear. Small-boned people with relatively small buttocks and shallow vulvar grooves find this position quite practical.

It does not suit the average heavier American or European so well, for seldom is the penis long enough to penetrate far into the vagina and it does not give any contact with the clitoris. If a good contact can be made at first, it is possible for the woman to learn how to squeeze together the vagina and hold the penis as long as it remains erect.

Such a procedure permits a maximum of satisfaction to both man and woman. In this position the man is free to use his hands in fondling the woman’s breasts or even to stimulate the clitoris if desired.
