6 Sex Positions Women Love and Hate


Sexual positions and a woman's enjoyment of them is based on a few key factors: size, position, and technique.  Let's face some cases size does impact compatibility.  Therefore, to determine if you "fit" well together, you'll have to have sex and figure out what positions work best for you.  Even though a combination of the right positions will improve your sex life, there's more to it!  Here's what you need to know:

6 Sex Positions Women Love and Hate

Missionary (Him on Top)

She loves it...
When she can firmly grab his butt, scratch his back, feel the muscles in his shoulders and look into his eyes.

She hates it...
When he ignores her eye contact, or it feels like he's using her to "get off" quickly without showing any signs that he's into HER.

Doggie Style (Him Behind)

She loves it...
When he reaches around to massage her clit, caresses her breasts, kisses the back or her neck, pulls her hair, and grabs her hips.

She hates it when...
She's not lubricated enough, he does nothing to show her he's enjoying her body, gets off really quickly and doesn't take interest in pleasuring her.

Standing Up

She loves it when...
He picks her up and pushes her against the wall.  The feeling of his strong arms holding her up is incredibly sexy.

She hates it when...
He's not strong or coordinated enough to get into a rhythm.  If the guy is on the smaller side, this one is really difficult to accomplish successfully.


She loves it when...
He moans a little when he goes down on her, and uses his tongue and fingers to pleasure her.

She hates it when...
He pushes her down, or he gets too thrusty with his hips and stops paying attention to what's in his mouth.

Her On Top

She loves it when...
She can control how fast and slow she rocks her hips, she feels him pulsing deep inside her, he grabs her butt, and/or spanks her as she rides him.

She hates it when...
He doesn't touch her, or generally looks bored as if he's just waiting until she gets off so he can switch positions.
