Missionary sex is a vaginal sexual position in which a woman lies on her back, the man lies on top of her and they face each other. This position is intimate and simple, which makes it one of the first sexual positions people tend to try.
Missionary sex is also known as the missionary sex position.
Missionary position, perhaps because it is one of the most basic sexual positions, has gained a reputation for being a boring, and even prudish, choice. Most believe that this position got its name from the teachings of ancient missionaries, who promoted it as the "proper" way to have sex. This is largely centered around the idea that women needed to be subordinate to men. There are many variations of this position. Women do tend to report this position as pleasurable. It can also be used by same sex couples.
