More About Vaginal Intercourse

Vaginal intercourse is straightforward. The penetrating partner inserts their penis into their partner's vagina and thrusts their hips. The vagina needs to be lubricated. Otherwise, vaginal sex could be painful for everyone involved. Natural lubrication can be achieved by engaging in foreplay, and sex lubricant can also add the required slickness. Lubricated condoms may also help. Some of the most common vaginal intercourse sex positions include Missionary, Doggy style, and Cowgirl. This differs from anal intercourse because the vagina is penetrated instead of the anus.
