More About Vaginal Intercourse

Vaginal intercourse is straightforward. A man inserts his penis into a woman's vagina and thrusts his hips. The vagina needs to be lubricated. Otherwise, vaginal sex could be painful for both the man and the woman. Natural lubrication can be achieved by engaging in foreplay. As a woman becomes more aroused, her vagina naturally lubricates itself in preparation for intercourse. If natural lubrication is difficult to achieve, artificial lubricants or lubricated condoms can be used.

Some of the most common vaginal intercourse positions include missionary, doggy style, and cowgirl.
