Cowboy Sex Position

Sex Positions: Cowboy

If you imagine the Cowgirl sex position but with the man on top, you have the Cowboy sex position. It’s a fun twist on missionary, or “him on top” sex!

How To Do It

The female partner lies on her back with her legs pressed together, as if she were in the traditional Missionary sex position. Her partner will then straddle her with each leg on either side of her to penetrate. He’s sitting straight up, “cowboy” style. He’s not used to thrusting like this, so it may take some time for him to get the hang of it.

A flat surface such as the bed, couch or floor will be best for the Cowboy sex position. This can be a fun one to do outdoors while camping or doing something else “rugged” or “outdoorsy.”

Props You’ll Need

Depending on where you do it, she may want a pillow or two under her head, or you may want to spread a blanket out first.

Difficulty Level


Her O-Meter


Because he is sitting straight up, it pretty much nixes any hope of constant clitoral contact for her. She does enjoy watching him go at it though, and the g-spot stimulation isn’t too shabby either.

His O-Meter


He likes being in control in the Cowboy sex position, but he may view this as a traditional “girl on top” sex position so he may or may not want to try it. Because her legs aren’t spread too far apart , the penetration is nice and tight even though it’s not as deep as it is in other sex positions.


She may be able to reach down and stimulate her clitoris in the Cowboy sex position, allowing her to receive more pleasure here. However, a hands free clitoral vibrator that can be worn is a fun addition that will heat this sex position up for sure!
