Do you want to know what sexual position men prefer? You do, don't you. That's maybe why Esquire posed the question to their readers and published the results last week. The outcome wasn't too surprising, but there was one little tidbit of data that caught my eye. It wasn't that 14 percent of married men have had at least one sexual encounter with another man, though that was an eyebrow raiser, it was that 28 percent of the dudes who actually took the time to fill out the survey said that their favorite posish is missionary style. Well well well.
Would you look at that. To be honest, I'm not surprised surprised, but listen. How many times have you seen headlines on the covers of magazines say something like, "How to Spice Up Your Sex Life!" or "Ways to Make Your Man Go Crazy!" or "This New Position Will Save Your Marriage!" You've probably even seen a headline or two like that on this very site. But according to the Esquire study, all 28 percent of us have to do is lay back and relax.
That said, 30 percent of men prefer their lady friend on top, facing them (as opposed to not facing them, just to be clear). Another 26 percent like doing it doggie style, and the others waffle around doing it while in the spoon position, or standing up, or the reverse cowgirl.
The takeaway here, ladies, is we don't need the LATEST HOTTEST NEWEST AWESOMEST MOST-IMPROVED COOLEST sex position out there to keep things exciting in the boudoir. There are only three positions that guys are apparently really into, despite what Cosmo, Glamour, or any other publication has to say. Three.
Kind of refreshing, no?
