The verdict is in: Sayonara, missionary!

Are guys really into experimenting in the bedroom? The sex industry has made it possible for men (and women) to dream bigger and bigger in the bedroom and take their move-of-choice well beyond the realm of missionary.

We asked a few guys to share how they really feel about the wide, wide world of sex positions — and if they're really serious about doing it from behind, or if it's just a fantasy they're holding onto.

Here's what they said: 

The Moves They Love:
Unsurprisingly, guys admitted that they are over missionary.

"It's just so basic," Charlie, 26, tells me. "I feel like there's no spark there; no excitement. Like, 'sure, let's do the most boring move ever tonight.' I don’t think any guy is really, really into it anymore."

And so, in missionary's wake are a few more creative twists.

"I like to be in the missionary position, but with a few little fun additions. Her legs over my shoulders, or her legs to the side," says Sean, 29, "I can get deeper and watch her pleasure herself."

"Doggie. Always doggie," Mike, 31, says. "I'm a butt guy — and it's my favorite move. If I had to pick a go-to, I'd always pick doggie."

"Not every guy (or girl) loves this move, but I really love having shower sex. It always feels really intimate for both of us, and I know that the shower makes a little more friction, but I still love it," says Tim, 27.

"I love anything that's out of the box,” says Tyler, 28. "Anything that you need to explain or anything that you've never done before, I want to try. There's something really sexy about trying to do a new move with a girl you’re really into, or someone you really love. It makes it exciting again."

The Moves They Hate:
It was a loud — and resounding — "missionary" when guys were asked which moves they're ready to retire.

And Jason, 29, sums it up perfectly: "I just feel like there are so many more exciting moves that we could do instead of missionary. It's fine for every once in a while, but more often than not, I'm going to be really bummed if we spend our time together doing missionary."

Scott, 33, adds, "So it's not a move on the must-not try list, but it's a move that belongs on the bench for those times you really just want to bang it out quickly."

The Question Of Anal Sex:
Do guys really want to have it? Or are they just interested by the idea of it? As a woman, the idea isn't really a preoccupation of mine and to be honest, I think it's a little gross. A lot of friends agree: It's just not something we're trying to have, but if our men wanted it, we might consider it. But is it the same for men?

"I just want to try it," says Adam, 24. "I don't even care if I don't like it, I just want to know what all the fuss is about."

Kyle, 34, says, "Been there. Tried that. Didn't love it. There was something weird about putting my member in my girlfriend's butt. I'll admit that I was really obsessed with having anal before I had it, but now I'm over it. I'd rather have sex that pleasures her, too."

"Yeah, guys want to have it. It's kind of like this elite club: Either you've had anal, or you haven't. You want to get in on the club … just to say that you can be in it," Johnny, 26 says. "I haven't had it yet — my girlfriend isn’t really interested in it — but I can't say that the idea hasn't crossed my mind. I just want to see if it's as good as everyone says it is."

"I keep asking my girlfriend to try it with me," says Ryder, 28. "And she keeps saying no. It's become a little running joke now — I'm not totally sure I'll still want to have it by the time she says yes."

"I'm curious, but when push comes to shove, I don't think I want to have it — unless her butt was totally cleaned out before. You don't want to have one of those horror stories happen to you! I mean, could you even imagine that?" says Sam, 31.

"How's this for interesting? My girlfriend wants to try it — but I don't," says Micah, 30. "She thinks I’ll love it, so she wants to do it for me. Personally, I think I'll hate it."

Guys, what do you think about sex positions? What's on your must-try list?
