In 2019, a survey conducted by Lelo – the world leader in intimate accessories – revealed that only 18% of women managed to climax during penetrative sex.
What if a sex position could help them. A new study published on July 5, 2022 in the journal Sexologies (source 1) analyzed different positions to determine which one could lead to female pleasure the fastest. For this, the researchers studied the physical reactions of a couple in good health. Among the positions performed: doggy style, missionary, Amazon, etc. Some positions have been tested with and without a pillow. An ultrasound of the clitoris was performed before and after each sexual intercourse.
Increase blood flow
Verdict? Scientists have found that it is the missionary with the pillow placed under the buttocks which caused the fastest orgasm. Indeed, this position made it possible to raise the pelvis. “Positions in which the thrusting partner’s gravitational force was in the same direction (and thus increasing) the thrusting force resulted in intense clitoral blood flow (face to face/woman above and face to face/man above). on it),” the researchers found. Conversely, doggy style produces the least direct contact with the clitoris. “Clitoral blood flow increased after engaging in every position except kneeling/rear entry,” the researchers note.
