The Pros and Cons of Doggie Style

Man Unhooking Woman's Bra

Is your favorite sex position the best one? Who doesn’t love taking her on all fours, ass in the air, hands on her hips as you thrust and grind? It’s how animals do it, so it makes sense that doggie style is one of the most popular positions for human animals.

The best sex definitely includes a lot of doggie in my opinion. Here’s what’s great—and what to watch out for—when it comes to this classic.

Pros of Doggie Style

The view is to die for.

It might be enough just to see her on all fours, naked, back arched. But you get more. You get a gorgeous point of view of her jiggling ass cheeks. You see her asshole and her pussy spread in detail. AND you watch your cock sliding in and out.

You feel virile.

A man feels very powerful and virile when he is kneeling or standing behind her: his hips are free to thrust in a variety of ways, and her wild writhing and moaning is always under his gaze.

She feels sexy and empowered.

While some say this position demeans women by objectifying them, I beg to differ and throw politics out the bedroom window.

I feel incredibly powerful and in control, not submissive, when I take it like a dog. I wield the arc of my back, my mane of hair, and the nuanced rotation of my ass like a whip, commanding your desire. The intensity of a man’s arousal in this position is a bonus for both of us.

Your hands are on her ass and tits.

Your hands are free to roam underneath her to her pussy and her breasts, to pull her hair if she likes it a little feisty, to spread her ass cheeks and get a closer view.

Deep penetration is good for both of you.

This position is amazing penetration for both him and her. It works well for couples where one or both parties are heavier, giving each other full access. If your penis is on the smaller side, this position is how she’ll experience the deepest penetration.

Cons of Doggie Style

She may find it painful if you’re too big or too rough.

On the other hand, if you are too hung, doggie style can be painful for her. If she’s into the softer touch, your forceful thrusting or pushing down on her back might be uncomfortable or a turn off.

The position is impersonal.

This is sometimes a bonus, for casual encounters or sex with an ex or any other scene where you both want sex but want to keep things at arms length. But it can be a drawback when you both want real intimacy. It’s easy to switch it up, however, to positions that allow a lot of kissing and contact, so if you want to be closer to each other, not just by the genitals, don’t make doggie the main course.

Some women won’t come this way.

I love a good pounding from behind, but you won’t get me off like this, not even if you touch my clit (or I do.) Some women do, but a lot of women can’t climax on all fours. Again, it’s easily solved by changing positions, before or after this one.

You can come too fast.

This position is so arousing that some guys can’t sustain it for too long before exploding. If that’s you, make this the last dance in your repertoire, when she has already come and it’s your turn.

Dudes tend to get stuck here and forget about the rest.

Some guys assume this position automatically, and forget about other possibilities. You don’t want to, well, get stuck in a rut, so make sure you have fun trying other positions—her favorites too.
