9 Reasons Why Everyone Should Try Doggy Style At Least Once

When it comes to your sex life, there's a cornucopia of positions out there for you and your partner to try. If you're in need of something to spice up your romps, you don't have to look very far to find a suggestion. But you don't have to do anything too outlandish. In fact, one of the simplest and well-loved sex positions is one that people are sometimes wary of: doggy style. Believe it or not, there are plenty of reasons why everyone should try doggy style at least once.

Though doggy style may have a misogynistic reputation amongst sex positions due to its popularity in porn geared towards the male gaze, and the dominant nature of the position itself — there's no reason to not partake in it, if it's something you want to try. Sex positivity, baby. It's the new frontier.

Like any sex position, if it's something you're nervous or wary about, talk it over with your partner before partaking, so you can work together to make it an enjoyable experience for the both of you. And before you write off doggy style as a position you're not so sure about, read on for the nine reasons everyone should try doggy style at least once.
