This week’s instalment of Do This Tonight is a flexible sex position that works well for a diverse array of couples. The Flipped Missionary/Butts Up looks deceptively simple, but I think it’s a vastly underrated position.
Why You Should Do This Tonight
There’s something for everyone here! For the partner on the bottom, being pinned face-down-arse-up can be pretty damned hot. If you’re a woman, this position makes it incredibly easy to get some well-needed clitoral stimulation. You can reach down and rub your clitoris, have your partner touch it, squeeze a pillow between your thighs to grind against, or pin a vibrator between your legs. Similarly, men on the bottom can grind up against the mattress or a hand. The person on top gets a great view of their partner’s arse. Win-win!
Who Should Do This Tonight
This position is a winner for gay and straight couples alike. It’s a great angle for p-in-v intercourse and for anal, including with a strap-on. If you’re not that into penetrative sex, it’s still a pretty good position for anal or vaginal fingering.
How To Do This Tonight
If penetration is involved, it’s generally easiest to start in doggystyle. Have the person on the bottom slowly lower themselves down to their forearms, and then all the way down onto their belly. Your face is going to be smooshed onto the mattress, but that’s part of what makes it hot. The person on top should follow along, and can either rest their body weight on their forearms (like in traditional Missionary), or sit up on their knees (gotta be a bit flexible for that!) The person on bottom can change the angle by arching their back, or by putting a pillow below their crotch.
