Tips For Being on the Bottom

So I've given you some tips for being on the top, but good old missionary position (guy on top) is also a fan favorite! The guy being on top can give a man a real sense of control and dominance, which can be very arousing to a woman, but since you're not doing much of the moving around, here are some tips to make being on the bottom more exciting.

  • Place a pillow under your bum. It'll help to tilt your pelvis, making it easier for your man to stimulate you. Lifting your pelvis up also helps to naturally engage your Kegel muscles, which will make sex more pleasurable for both of you.
  • Try actively squeezing your Kegel muscles to intensify the sensations even more. Either hold them and then release, or practice rhythmically contracting and releasing.
  • Try adjusting the position of your legs to change where you feel the sensations. They can be straight on the bed; bent at the knees with your feet close to your bum; or lifted with your legs up and your feet on your man’s chest or over his shoulders. You can also try one leg up and one leg down.
  • Since your man is on top and doing most of the moving, make sure you're communicating your needs as well.

one thing that helps me on top (and him) is not only moving up off him and then back down, but also just moving your hips forward and back. it also rubs things against him which feels pretty good.

This only works for me if I am on the edge of a bed, and he is standing up and my feet are resting on his shoulders.Also, the pillow trick works!
