Definition - What does Reverse Missionary Position mean?

The reverse missionary is a gentle but intimate receiver-on-top position. It is great for gentle sex, and can be helpful for partners who suffer from back pain. It also offers a full, intimate view for both partners!

Kinkly explains Reverse Missionary Position

To get into this position, the penetrative partner lies down with a pillow under their lower back if needed. The receptive partner straddles the penetrative partner then leans forward so they’re lying down, face-to-face. This keeps the receptive partner’s back rounded forward instead of arched. Partners can take turns doing the work here, making this a very equitable position.
