Love to boost the intimacy? Happy to take charge? Looking to surrender?
A person’s favourite sex position can say a lot about them.
Bed SOS surveyed 2,000 people up and down the country to try and find the most popular sex positions, and according to their findings, the biggest faves were Missionary (27% specifically preferred it when they’re being penetrated and 15% as the penetrator), Doggy Style (20%), Cowgirl (8%) and Spooning (4%).
Got a fave among any of these heavy hitters? Here’s that says about you, according to sex and intimacy coach and founder of Feel Fully You Juliette Karaman.
Missionary (as the penetrated)
If your favourite position is being penetrated in missionary, then Juliette says you’re probably a little shy in the bedroom.
She said: ‘This position is often preferred by people who are shy and lacking in self-assurance.
‘More popular with women than with men, having sex like this allows the partner to take the lead, whilst also feeling connected because of the eye contact and being able to kiss.’

Missionary for those on top is a pretty different experience than for those on the bottom.
If missionary with you as the penetrator is a favourite of yours, Juliette said you’re ‘not afraid to take control.’
She explained: ‘Allowing couples to kiss and look into each other’s eyes during the manoeuvre, missionary is a very intimate position in the bedroom.
‘Preferring to have your partner on the bottom suggests that you are confident and not afraid to take control.’

Doggy style can be a big hit among those who like things a bit less personal and was most popular with men in the survey.
‘Doggy style is much less connecting for partners,’ said Juliette, ‘As there is no eye contact.
‘The nature of this technique offers deeper penetration and pleasure for men, though might not be as comfortable for the receiving partner, especially if the man is well-endowed.
‘Most popular with men, doggy style allows them to fantasise as it doesn’t require looking into their partner’s face.’
If you’re into being the cowgirl in this situation, chances are you’re confident with your body and pleasure.
Juliette says: ‘The cowgirl position is very visual for men as they can look up and see their partner’s whole body.
‘The technique can be very pleasurable for women as it allows them to control the stimulation of the clitoris with their movement. Opting regularly for cowgirl in the bedroom suggests that you are at ease with your body and are comfortable with your partner.’
If being the little spoon is your favourite, you’re probably into the comforting sensation of being cradled by and surrendering to your paramour.
Juliette explains: ‘Having sex in the spooning position can be very comforting for the little spoon as they are being held by their partner.
‘It is more of a surrendered position for the little spoon, though it allows an element of control as the depth of penetration can be varied with the positioning of legs.’
