What Does Doggy Style Feel Like When You're Pregnant? Here's What To Expect

Sex is supposed to feel good all the time. In order for that to happen, particularly during pregnancy, you have to find the position that feels right. That can be a bit tricky when your ever-growing belly is in the way. Luckily, one of the more popular pregnancy sex positions is one that often feels good for many women — doggy style. That being said, some moms-to-be may wonder what doggy style feel like when pregnant. And, depending on a few factors, it can be a little different than pre-pregnancy doggy style.

Some women have said that doggy style sex can be too penetrating during pregnancy, and this could depend on your body, his body, and how you had sex from behind pre-pregnancy. If this was your go-to position for deep-penetration, you may want to change things up a little during pregnancy. Ask your partner to slow it down, not go as deep, and as Bustle suggested, try moving side to side during doggy style.

Doggy style can feel really good, especially if you try a few different angles. Instead of staying on your hands and knees, try resting on your knees while semi-upright with your hands on a wall or your headboard. From personal experience, when you arch your back and tilt your pelvis, it gives your partner even better access to your clitoris, which for many is the best and most successful route to orgasm. Pleasuring your own clitoris while he is thrusting can be mind-blowing. Plus, this is the position that your G-spot can get the most attention as well.

Sex from behind can also be a third trimester favorite. When your belly starts to really grow, making lying on your back uncomfortable, doggy style is where it's at — it's primal and loving. According to Women's Health, there are ways to make doggy style more pleasurable. Try it with your partner rubbing your back, and using shorter and then almost-too-deep ones. A lower back massage during sex might be one of the greatest things to experience during pregnancy. You can also try the reach around or under, when you gently massage his testicles or grab his butt while you are having sex. One favorite is holding the base of his penis when he slowly enters you.

Pregnancy isn't a condition where you have to refrain from getting freaky. In an interview with Women's Health, OB-GYN Dr. Kecia Gaither said, “engaging in loving, sexual activity has been shown to have positive benefits for both expecting mother and unborn child." Gaither also reminded moms-to-be that it can be really relaxing, thanks to the oxytocin released during intimacy. Sex from behind can release a lot of those feel-good hormones that will not only feel great in the moment, but can reduce stress, help you forget about pregnancy back pain, and keep the bond going with your partner as you prepare to go on one of the most incredible journeys of your lives — parenthood.
