Looking to try a new sex position? We've got one that's as easy as it is hot, and it's called the reverse cowgirl position. The reverse cowgirl is a woman-on-top, rear-entry sex position based on the classic cowgirl sex position. Now, maybe you've tried that one, but turning things around makes for a whole new experience! Instead of facing her partner, as in the classic cowgirl, the partner on top turns her back to her partner, which makes it much easier for him to hit her G-spot. It’s an easy position that pays real dividends in the bedroom.

What the partner on top does in the Reverse Cowgirl Sex Position

The reverse cowgirl sex position is so appealing for women because it makes it easy for their partners to hit their G-spot. The partner on top is in total control for this position, so she can get the stimulation that she likes best.

Once the partner on the bottom is in position on the bed, his partner can straddle him. She should be facing his feet and leaning slightly forward, with her knees on either side of his hips. The partner on top can rest her arms on her partner's thighs or knees to steady herself. Once in position, she should take his hard penis in her hand, angle it down slightly, and lower herself onto it. Then she can move up and down as she pleases, using her leg muscles for momentum. She can choose the speed, angle, and depth she loves, for ultimate G-spot stimulation. However, the partner on top should exercise some caution; bouncing too hard or leaning too far forward can put the penis under pressure and cause injuries.

Note that reverse cowgirl can also work as an anal sex position. Check out reverse cowgirl anal for more tips.

What the partner on the bottom does in the Reverse Cowgirl Sex Position

The partner on the bottom doesn’t need to exert himself too much during the reverse cowgirl. He can just relax and enjoy the ride - and the view of his partner's sexy back and butt!

The partner on the bottom lies flat on his back on the bed, often with his legs hanging over the edge. Once she’s lowered onto his penis, he should synchronize his movements with hers for satisfying sex. He may like to hold her hips to help with thrusting. He can also take over the thrusting to change things up or give his partner a break.

Tips and Tricks for Performing the Reverse Cowgirl Sex Position

Some people feel the partner on the bottom is the only one who gets visual stimulation from the reverse cowgirl position. However, both partners can get a great view when they try this position in front of a mirror.

The giving partner shouldn’t feel restricted to a simple up and down motion either. Rocking backwards and forwards or rolling the hips in circles can help spice up sex in this position. She can also arch her back for deeper G-spot stimulation.

There are also opportunities for extra stimulation. He may like to stroke her clitoris or touch her breasts; she could play with his testicles while she rides him.

While the reverse cowgirl is a low-impact position, it can be uncomfortable for women who find kneeling painful. They may prefer to squat over their partner, with their feet flat on the bed, as in extended cowgirl (shown below).

The giving partner may also feel unsteady at times. She can balance herself by placing her hands out in front of her, either on her partner's legs or the bed, or by reaching behind and steadying herself on his thighs. Leaning forward can also increase clitoral stimulation.
