As far as you-on-top positions go, reverse cowgirl is one that should definitely be in your repertoire. But how do you actually pull it off? Here’s everything you need to know about reverse cowgirl.

Reverse Cowgirl

The Basics:

It helps to think of reverse cowgirl as, duh, the reverse of regs cowgirl. If in regular cowgirl, you face your partner and straddle them with your knees on either side of their hips, reverse is just you doing the same damn thing, but facing their feet.

If your knees aren’t feelin’ it, you can also squat with your feet flat on the bed.

Getting Into It:

Have your partner lie on their back while you assume the position on top of them. When they’re hard and you’re both well lubricated, use one hand to steady yourself on the bed or their legs, while you use your other hand to keep the base of their penis steady as you lower yourself onto them.

Once they’re inside you, you can start using your leg muscles to move up and down based on what feels good for you. To stabilize yourself, you can put your hands in front of you on their legs or on the bed, or reach backwards and put your hands on his thighs. Just make sure you don’t lean too far forward or backward with your partner’s penis inside you, or things could get uncomfortable, fast.

Antonia Hall, sex and relationship expert and author of The Ultimate Guide to a Multi-Orgasmic Life, also adds that seated reverse cowgirl is a good way to dip your toe into the world of reverse cowgirl. For the seated variation, have your partner sit on the edge of the bed and ease yourself down onto his lap. This takes balance out of the equation so you can both get comfy playing around with what depth and angles feel best before going full-reverse cowgirl.

Why It’s So Great:

Hall says this is the perfect position to learn to be in control. It’s easy to learn, and with your back to your partner, you might find that any anxiety or inhibitions you’re feeling will fade away.

You’re the one in control, and you can do whatever feels best for you. Play around with motions and angles as much as you want. You can move up and down, grind back and forth or in circles, flex your back so your partner can hit your most sensitive spots, and so much more. Plus, since you have easy access to your clitoris, this is the perfect position to whip out a vibrator, or stimulate yourself with your hands or just grind against your partner.

Reverse cowgirl also offers the best of both worlds for you and your partner. Your partner gets a pretty bangin’ view of your backside while you do your thing, and you’re free to make whatever O-face you’d like with your back to them.

When You Start Getting Tired:

It’s only natural to get tired of being on top after a while. When this happens, you can have your partner hold your hips to guide your thrusting.

From seated reverse cowgirl, you can also lean forward into downward dog with your hands flat on the floor, Hall adds. This position is great for deeper penetration and is a good “resting” position. To make this an active recovery, take a few seconds and move your hips in slow circles with him inside you.

Extras:

Of course, one of the best things about this position is the easy clitoral access.

Anything you can easily control with one hand while riding your partner is a win-win here. Though, if you're open to handing the reins over to your partner, that also opens up your options. While you might not be able to stabilize yourself and maneuver a Magic Wand around in seated reverse cowgirl, it should be no sweat for your partner.
