Here’s what your favourite sex position says about you

Are you a fan of good ol’ missionary or do you like to put on a show à la cowgirl?

As humans, we are creatures of habit, and same goes for sex. While we might be open to trying new things between the sheets, more often than not we find ourselves gravitating towards our favourite positions—be it the classic cowgirl or the more experimental wheelbarrow (it is exactly what it sounds like). If you’ve ever wondered whether your go-to sex move is a reflection of who you are as a person, then we have answers to that. 

Ahead, find out what your favourite sex position says about you. 


If you like missionary, then you’re a big believer of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. So what if you’re predictable? Missionary, which involves your partner being on top during intercourse, might be one of the most tried-and-tested positions in the book, but it works. You are also all about intimacy and making a meaningful connection with the other person—the nature of the position means you’re in for some intense eye contact and close proximity. 

Doggy style

Ooh la la! This position is not for the faint-hearted, and if this is your jam, you definitely have a wild streak to you. Doggy style puts your sexual needs first and foremost—you might keep it all lovey-dovey in the streets but you’re freaky in the sheets for sure. Fans of this position are passionate, enthusiastic, and up for anything. 



You’re the type of romantic person who would cuddle all day with your partner if you could. After all, no position awards as much intimacy and a close connection with your lover as much as spooning does. If this is your favourite move in the bedroom, then you’re an affectionate person who likes taking things slow and steady. You’re also quite comfortable; not only in your relationship but also as an individual. Since this is one of the easiest sex positions that require minimal effort from both parties—it’s safe to say you have an easy-going and relaxed outlook when it comes to life. 


If cowgirl is your go-to move, then you get off of control. Be it in the bedroom or outside, you like when you’re in charge of the situation. You know what you want, and you go after it unabashedly. Plus, you like it when all eyes are on you—the position enables you to put on quite a show for your partner!

Reverse Cowgirl 

Is the reverse cowgirl position your preference in the bedroom? Then you love smashing the status quo. You don’t like following the herd and want to do things differently. But since the position, which involves the receiving partner sitting on top and facing away, is similar to cowgirl, you still thrive on the feeling of power and like to take the reins. 



If you end up being in a variation of this position more often than not, then we have news for you: you’re as adventurous as they come. You like experimenting and are always up for a new challenge. We wouldn’t put it past you to have a bucket list of places you want to do it at—on the kitchen counter, in the shower, or pressed against the bedroom door. Hot! You may also enjoy the thrill of getting caught doing something naughty or unconventional.
