The Worst Sex Position For A Woman

You may enjoy it but this sex position has been voted to be the worst by real women.

Ali Eaves, the Men’s Health Girl Next Door, takes all your questions on women, love, and lust.

What's the most overrated sex position?

—Roger from Reno, Nevada

That's easy: reverse cowgirl. I know, I know, you love the view. But if you asked your partner, she'd probably call it more of a quad-building exercise than a sex position.

If fact, we did ask 1,111 Women's Health readers that question, and they back me up: Reverse cowgirl was the most popular answer, with 39 percent of the votes. Doggy style came in next, with 28 percent of the votes. Notice a pattern?

So what's wrong with reverse cowgirl? Honestly, the angle is all wrong—not to mention terrifying. While she's up there bopping around, she's also stressing about whether you're enjoying it (as she stares at the wall or your feet) and praying that she doesn't snap you in two.

That said, don't feel you have to ban it from the playbook. Variety is hot! And there are certainly women out there who love it.

But the next time she assumes the position, just do her a favor and be extra vocal so she feels connected to you. Or try this tip that a smart couple sent to me via Facebook: Hang a strategically placed mirror in the bedroom to give her something more interesting to look at than the wall. You can also see if she wants to use a sex toy on herself, like this vibrator from the Men's Health store.

Then switch over to doggy style or one of her favorite sex positions before it becomes too uncomfortable.
