Mobile users: turn your phone sideways and zoom in if needed! Woman On Top Sex Positions. One of the things that's really clear from the e-mails I receive is how much men fantasize about having sex in the woman on top position. And yet, research has proved time and time again that by far the most popular sex position is man on top. So why is it that men fantasize so much about woman on top sexual positions, but don't do it a great deal? After all, this is a wonderful sexual position for men: it allows a man to lie back — literally — and enjoy the sight of his partner riding him. He can fondle her breasts, he can caress her back and her buttocks if she happens to be facing away from him , she can bend forward to kiss him, or lean back to give him a sight of the action, she can take him to the edge of orgasm and keep him there for as long as she likes until he explodes in orgasmic bliss. And in addition she can give him some wonderful sensations by riding his penis up and down, side to side, or even in a circular fashion. So why isn't the woman on top sexual position more popular?
