Positions for Sexual Intercourse - Page 1 of 4

Survey Results: Glamour Magazine

When asked "What positions do you prefer?" 1,500 women indicated:

Missionary 30%
You (woman) on top 28%
Doggie-Style 21%
On your sides 16%
Other 5%

See Our Survey: Ladies, What Position do You Prefer?

These surveys indicate that while an individual woman may have a preferred sexual position during intercourse, women as a whole do not. A woman is just as likely to enjoy being on top, or having her partner enter her from behind, as she is to have her partner lay on or over her. While the missionary position is assumed to be the most commonly used position, which it may very well be, women do not in general find this position more pleasurable than others.
