Doggy positionThe doggy position (also known in Latin as coitus more ferarum, "sex in the manner of a beast") is a popular sex position. In the doggy position,
- the woman crouches on all fours, spreading her legs slightly
- the man crouches over her, and penetrates her vagina with his penis from behind.
Features of the doggy position:
- penetration is quite deep
- no eye contact
- achieving alignment between penis and vagina takes practice
Many people do not regard this position as demeaning in any way for either partner, and enjoy the position for its own merits.
