The search is over.

A recent study in The Journal Of Sexual Medicine just revealed something that should send sex-positive kink-lovers like myself into wild palpitations.

Apparently, the best sex position for women? 

It's missionary sex.

I know! 

While I love the idea of devious, naughty, sex of all sorts, I have a bit of a confession to make: I love missionary. 

It's my failsafe! I can be tired, crampy, horny, drunk, whatever — missionary sex will always, always, always get me off.

So to be honest, I wasn't all that surprised by the findings. 

Much like vanilla ice cream, people completely underestimate the glories of missionary sex!

If you're having some not so satisfying missionary sex, it's not because it isn't the best sex position for women, it's because you have yet to completely discover its peculiar charms.

For a position that's so primal and common, there's a lot more to missionary sex than a man just climbing on top! 

Below you will find five totally valid reasons that missionary sex is so popular with women. 

If nothing else may this list have you headed to your bedroom trying to make this classic sex position (that men have always loved) the newest sex trend sensation!

Or something....

1. Eye Contact

As Hall and Oates once (and awesomely) sang "Private eyes, are watching you they see your every moooove!" 

Yup, those dues (and their questionable taste in facial hair styles) got it right. When it comes to sex, eye contact is critical. 

While missionary sex is often labeled as being the most vanilla of the vanilla, it allows for intense intimacy of the eye-ball variety. 

Your dude might be dying to show off his skills by banging you upside down against a wall while suspended from a harness that glows in the dark, but the simple face-to-face that missionary sex allows makes it incredibly popular.

Just like vanilla ice cream, it's a classic for a reason.

2. Male Dominance 

During missionary sex, he's on top, which means he's in control. 

He controls the speed and depth of thrusts and he can adjust your body accordingly to make sex more pleasurable for both of you.

You don't need to be a kinky BDSM-loving person to totally melt at the idea of a guy totally taking control in the bedroom

There's something delicious and primal about it that almost all women find impossible to resist. 

3. Angle Of Penetration 

Believe it or not, the angle of vaginal penetration that occurs during missionary sex is kind of ideal! 

If you are a woman who can only orgasm clitorally (you know, like, ALMOST EVERYONE) a man penetration you in missionary position can stimulate your clitoris using his penis

If you are a woman who can only orgasm through vaginal penetration, then the world is your goddamned oyster and this position is just as good as every other one out there. 

If your dude needs an anatomy lesson, missionary makes it easier for him to see the lay of the land, as it were. 

By lay of the land I mean the little man in the boat.

By little man in the boat, I mean your clit. 

4. Variation

One of the best things about missionary sex is that it has endless variations.

That's part of what makes its legacy so enduring! You know, like apple pie or keds OR EVEN AMERICA (man I am patriotic today). 

If you clitoris is set further back from your vaginal opening than you'd like, a pillow under your hips makes it easier for him to stimulate. 

Want added depth of penetration? Prop your legs up on his shoulders! 

Just like vanilla ice cream there is no limit to what you can add to the mix to make missionary sex sing!

I fully expect to be dying for ice cream when I'm done writing this. I fully expect you to be do. 

That or sex, I guess.

5. Experience Levels

My favorite thing about missionary sex? 

It's doesn't require you to have insane amounts of sexual experience.

You can be a beginner or some sort of Don Juan, vagina-smashing lothario from days of old and still manage to make missionary sex hot, intimate, and mind-blowing.

In many respects it is the marijuana of the sex-position world: it's a gateway drug, leading you towards bigger badder sex postions.

To be clear, I do not think that doggy-style is like, the heroin of the sex-position world, but it's a funny simile so I'm keeping it.

Those are just five reasons why missionary sex kicks every butt that there is. 

But, as Lavar Burton once said, don't take my word for it! Get out there and find out what so many other sex-having women already know! 

Missionary ahoy.
