If you passed through middle school anytime in the past few generations, you may have heard the rumor that humans and dolphins are the only animals who mate for pleasure. This is objectively untrue — bonobos and macaques , for instance, have been observed doing just that — but Homo sapiens is without a doubt the only species to worry endlessly that one is not having the best sex they could possibly be having. From the Kama Sutra to Cosmo , thousands of guides have been created to mitigate that fear and ostensibly help the reader become better in bed. The truth is that, despite what the sex-position-industrial complex would have you believe, there is not an endless number of ways to get it on. No, when it comes to heterosexual penetrative penis-in-vagina sex, there is only a handful of actual positions that everyone uses regularly. Six, precisely, which means that frogs have us beat.
A sex position is a position of the body that people use for sexual intercourse or other sexual activities. Sexual acts are generally described by the positions the participants adopt in order to perform those acts. Though sexual intercourse generally involves penetration of the body of one person by another, sex positions commonly involve penetrative or non-penetrative sexual activities. Three categories of sexual intercourse are commonly practiced: vaginal intercourse involving vaginal penetration , anal penetration , and oral sex especially mouth-on-genital stimulation. The act may also involve anilingus. There are numerous sex positions that participants may adopt in any of these types of sexual intercourse or acts; some authors have argued that the number of sex positions is essentially limitless. Sex manuals usually present a guide to sex positions.
