Get to love doggy style and all the sensations this nifty position brings.

Even if you enjoy vanilla sex, this is a position you can incorporate without leaving your realm of comfort. The birds do it, the bees do it...and humans are definitely enjoying doggy style sex.

What It Is

Doggy style is the name for a sex position where one partner (the one to be penetrated) is on their hands and knees, with their head upright and their ass facing the other partner's front (who is going to be doing the penetrating).

The term is a play on the idea that this is how dogs (or animals in general) have sex. This position is not just reserved for dogs, however.

Almost every mammal naturally positions themselves in "doggy style" because it gives the most effective penetration and some incredible orgasms because of the way the partners are positioned for friction, speed of movement and hitting all the right "spots".

Tips for Deeper Sensations

Getting into positions for some tried-and-true doggy style goodness comes pretty naturally to humans. If you know you're both going to edge or if you plan to be here for a while, set up some pillows beneath your hands and knees or do it on a soft surface like a bed.

Get in position and start to insert the head of the penis (or even a toy, if that's your thing). Tease her first and get her wet for an even easier time getting in by "dipping" in slowly and running the penis around the fleshy folds of her vagina. She'll automatically want to arch her back but try and keep it flat for the most part to protect throwing out your lower back.

It depends on how much sensation you're looking for and what kind of speed your lover likes. You can alternate between fast and slow strokes. When entering, you can go slow, so your partner feels every inch, bit by bit or, as long as there is enough lubrication, you can move their ass towards you and enter in more abruptly.

Getting Creative

Many couples love doggy style because of the added flexibility it offers them. They can get really creative because, if you're having sex with a woman, not only is her vaginal opening down there but her gorgeous ass is probably sticking out and beckoning to be touched, at the very least.

As long as you've both discussed this before, you can take doggy style into anal territory with just a finger and some lube. Start by rubbing the anal opening gently while thrusting. If your partner particularly loves the sensation, they'll let you know.

Once it's more open, start to slowly insert your middle finger or your thumb while holding on to their ass. While you're in doggy, both partners' hands are free. He can use his to fondle her breasts, rub her clit or she can use a vibrator to stimulate her clit while stroking his balls.

The options to get creative are virtually endless in this nifty but naught little position!
