Is This True, Are Guys Not Really Into Doggy Style?

If someone asked me which sex position guys prefer and I was basing my answer on what I’ve learned through the media instead of using my personal experience, I would definitely answer “doggy” with “reverse cowgirl” as a close second.

Funny story, I once knew a woman who would never do doggy, because she thought that doggy style was always anal. I disabused her of that notion, but no word on whether she went on to do doggy, because we stopped being friends. For the record, the end of our friendship had nothing to do with her lack of sexual knowledge.

It’s always good to be informed, though, and if you think doggy is the same as anal you definitely need to do some reading. At the very least do some reading. For God’s sake.

Some of you are dude, so tell me: Is doggy your favorite position or not? As Cosmo been lying to me all these years?

According to an article I just read on The Frisky, dudes aren’t as crazy about doggy as we’re led to believe for a multitude of reasons. One, it’s hard on the knees. Two, rug burns suck. Three, it feels too good and dudes cum too fast. Four, it’s not very rhythmic. Five, queefs are gross.

Riiight, I’m not sure about this reasoning. True doggy is hard no the knees, but so are a lot of other positions and I can guarantee that doggy is a lot harder on the knees of the person who is on all fours, so what do dudes have to complain about? They can just stand on the edge of the bed and level their bodies that way. Problem solved.

Rug burns do suck! I remember the first time I got rug burns. I was still in grade school… maybe junior high and my bedroom was carpeted at the time. I was lying on the floor rubbing one out and when I was done I couldn’t figure out what happened to my knees. That day I learned that the friction that felt so good on my clit didn’t feel so good on my knees.

Strangely enough, I have since learned how to move my body in such as way as to not get rug burns. It’s really not that hard. Also, getting rid of that rug helped. GET RID OF ALL RUGS, I say!

It feels too good?! Okay, I buy that, but the person writing this article said it feels too good, because it’s such an intimate position and creates a lot of skin to skin contact, which is a huge turn on. Wait, what? Every person I’ve ever heard complain about this position says the reason they don’t like it is because it’s NOT an intimate position and it DOESN’T have lots of skin to skin contact.

And that last complaint about queefs, what the fuck? If you’re so immature that you’re bothered by the sounds bodies make while they’re having sex maybe you shouldn’t be having sex. I mean, COME ON?! Queefs are one of two things, no big deal or funny, and neither of those options make for a bad sexual encounter. *Lola drops mic and walks away*

*Lola comes back* Shit, I forgot about the rhythm complaint. According the The Frisky the reason why Believe It or Not, Guys Aren’t That Into Doggy-Style is because the position lacks proper rhythm. Really? Apparently ladies find it hard to keep their balance while being pounded from behind. *Gently rests forehead on desk* Besides missionary, doggy is probably the easiest position in which to keep your balance.

Being on all fours is super stable, I mean, that’s why babies crawl on all fours before learning to walk, precisely because it’s much easier to keep your balance on four limbs rather than two. Duh.Check out this video, because doggy deserves some love after all those negatives:

  • Doggy isn’t my favorite but what do I know

    • I should have asked what everyone’s favorite position is.

      • Mine is Executive Assistant to the C.E.O.

        • Lottery winner. Some good ol’ Lotto 69. That’s not a thing. I’m tired.

          • BDY

            Next article should be about 69ing.

          • That’s a good idea.

  • Zach Becvar

    Doggy doesn’t do anything for me. It lacks intimacy. I like being able to look my partner in the eye when I’m having sex. I also check the boxes of hard on the knees (mine are crap) and rhythm issues.

    AND there was the one time I was I was having sex and while we were going doggy style she started barking.

    • DrDanny

      “I like being able to look my partner in the eye …”
      Me too, but I mean the “other” eye.

    • Did that really happen, the barking? Geeze.

      I know it’s boring, but my fave is pretty much missionnaire or one of it’s modified versions.

      • Zach Becvar

        Yes the barking really happened. It was an odd thing to be party to.

        I do like some of the modified missionary positions where you just end up in a tangle of limbs and bedding.

  • Leonard Taylor

    Im not a big fan of doggy much like zach for lack of intimacy and when standing its hard to maintain balance. My wife has a big ass and when she starts getting into it, she starts throwing her ass back at me and she has knocked me over a time or two.

    • You gotta like the fact that she really gets into it, though!!

      • Leonard Taylor

        Its always guaranteed to get a giggle out of us.

  • Mark Simkulet

    It’s one of my favorites. People have some valid criticisms of it (the lack of intimacy that Zach mentioned below is the most relevant one for me), but I rather enjoy it. Plus, my ex had issues with her back that made cowgirl difficult for her, so we fell back on doggy pretty often and I grew to love it.

    • I like doggie, but a modified version where I’m lying half on the bed with my butt in the air or if the guy just collapses on me at some point.

  • BDY

    The wife and enjoy doggy but it’s great when we are up for a good hard fuck or feeling dirty. It’s still one of her favorite anal positions. Mostly we stick to modified missionary or cowgirl. She loves to ride and has extremely sensitive nipples so cowgirl allows for perfect access.

    • I knew you were going to answer this question!

      • BDY

        Really!?! That’s your reply. Way to contribute to the conversation there lola.

        • DON’T BE SO HARD ON ME!

          P.S. That’s what she said.
