Of all the sex positions out there, missionary is known as the most vanilla. But we’re calling bullshit on it’s reputation as boring. There really are quite a few reasons why you should start to think of missionary as an amazing sex position that’s worth turning to now and again. Missionary position is usually most people’s first position — it’s the one that we all kinda see/learn first from movies. That might be why it doesn’t have the cool factor that other positions have and instead seems like something only boring prudes do.

But having more acrobatic sex doesn’t actually mean having better sex. And we have this suspicion that a lot of people aren’t letting on how much they actually enjoy good ol’ missionary sex over some of the more *advanced* moves we see in porn or magazines, all in the name of sounding like they’re “better” in bed. But this is flawed thinking!
