Men and women like different things. It’s not sexism, it’s reality.
I’ve yet to meet a guy who’s as enthusiastic about bite-size snacks and Balmainia as I am. Likewise, my guy friends lament their inability to find a girl who can keep up with excessive video game talk.
Those differences are found in the bedroom, too. Guys give me a whole host of reasons as to why “girl on top” is the best sex position ever. Conversely, I’ve never met a girl who didn’t express how much she loves when her man f*cks her doggy style.
Being the sex scientist I am (not formally, but I digress), I crunched some numbers. I surveyed 50 of my coworkers and friends on their favorite positions in bed.
With this information, I figured out if guys really do love different things between the sheets than girls do.
Check out our ranking of positions from “ugh” to “oh, yes!”
You’ll be surprised.
LADIES COME FIRST.
#9. THE LOTUS
Sex is no place to just take a seat.
Lotus — a position in which both partners sit facing each other, with one partner’s legs wrapped around the other’s — is the least favorite position of the women surveyed.
I kind of get it. It’s a hard position to maneuver in, and getting the angle right is always a matter of very precise legwork. No one has time for that.
Girls might love spooning, but they apparently hate forking. Wrap your arms around us, gentlemen, just don’t stick anything else there.
Also, if anyone has figured out a good angle for spooning sex, please Tweet at me. Asking for a friend.
Looks like girls aren’t about “giving and getting.”
The 69 hangs low as the #7 most favorite position for ladies. Sure, great sex is all about reciprocation, but it’s somehow worse when both your asses are in each other’s face at the same time.
#6. REVERSE COWGIRL
Reverse cowgirl falls somewhere in the middle for the ladies surveyed. If he’s getting a great view and she only gets to see his feet, it’s just not a fun time.
#5. AGAINST THE WALL
F*cking against the wall only fared slightly better for the ladies than it did the gents. Seriously, how does this always look so hot in movies, but is so difficult in real life?
#4. ANKLES OVER HER HEAD
Girls dig having their ankles over their heads — it allows us to show off the results of those early Bikram yoga classes.
We love the power. He’s under you, your legs are wrapped around him and you get to control the speed and angle. Bonus points for wrapping your hands around his neck, too.
It might be the oldest trick in the book, but who cares? It feels good, the guy does all the work and still has ample room to use his arms to pin you the f*ck down.
On behalf of women everywhere, please stick it in the right hole.
