Dr. Sawyer: This is obviously all about personal preference, and so there’s not a lot of scientific data on this topic. A recent study called the Lifestyles Condoms Sexual Satisfaction Survey might help to throw some light on this issue. Here’s what the survey suggests about favorite positions:
- 40% of men and 20% of women prefer woman on top.
- 40% of women and 20% of men prefer man on top.
- 30% of men and 26% of women prefer rear entry or “doggie style.”
- 8% of men and 3% of women like the “reverse cowgirl” position.
- Only 2% of men and women prefer face-to-face lying sideways, while only 3% of men and women like rear entry lying sideways.
- Finally, only 1% of men and 2% of women appreciate the challenge of sex while standing … slackers!
