The world has witnessed a lot of discussions and arguments on the definition of sex over the last few centuries (world population speaks for itself). The arguments have been focusing quite intensely on the ‘changes as we progressed over time and with our increased understanding of science. Yes, in some of our previous articles on Burn The Night, we have discussed a lot on ‘Sex Toys’, ‘Public Sex’ and ‘Homemade Sex Clips’, but those were just some scratches that we created in order to dig deeper into the polar caps of the unknown changes - it's no wonder that some people believe that sex is all about digging deeper.

Many people argue that the concept of SEX has undergone a lot of changes and not just from the outside, but from deep down inside; fundamentally. The West believes that as we progressed with understanding in our modern era, more and more sex positions were introduced in our sex lives. However, the East contradicts this notion by always coming up with an enormous amount of knowledge in regards to that particular sex position, as highlighted in the scriptures of the Kamasutra written centuries ago. A time way before, we, the modern human civilisation, rediscovered it and proclaimed it as our own invention. 

Yes, there are a lot of sex positions. We recently conducted a survey via the IGNITE Twitter account for the 'most popular sex position', the result was quite interesting. 48% of people voted for ‘Doggy Style’ as their most favourite sex position. As some of our readers have asked, we have concluded a few points to explain the potential reasons for this position's popularity among the masses. So why are people really fond of ‘Doggy Style’?

 

1. Historical dominance within gender roles.

In ancient periods, people used to bend or bow down in front of the people with higher rank or supreme power. According to many Archeologists and Historians, several of our societies have always been, or have mostly been, patriarchal. The concept of women bending and bowing down in front of the bread winner of the house, which was often the male head, was very common. This submission even continued further in their sexual acts where it was the woman who bowed down and submitted herself. That's quite a representation from the women’s side to help make their men feel confident about their weenie!

 

2. It’s easy to manipulate your mind once you are not looking at her face.

As someone rightly said, ‘the world is not a wish-granting factory’ and hence not everyone gets what they want. We do make compromises in many aspects of our lives; including in our love life as well. It may be the case that the person with whom you are having sex with may not have been your first choice. The constant reminder that your current sex-partner could have been someone else can complicate your sex life. So for many of those that are in this situation, doggy style becomes the best alternative. They can manipulate their mind and imagine themselves having sex with someone who had been the first one on their priority list. It's a cruel and dishonest approach but it does happen, probably more so in casual dating and hook-ups.

 

3. It’s more about having the grip and firm stability.

Aside from the darker scenarios involving imaginings and half truths, many people believe that ‘doggy style’ gives them a better position to control the flow of the act. Sometimes, a stronger thrust by a man can hit a woman’s vaginal bone that can in turn cause pain. Hence, having a firm grip by holding / grabbing her waist for better stability helps the couple to experience sex in a pleasurable way. Also, apart from spending more energy and stamina into thrusting, many people believe that controlling a slight pulling and pushing of her body can result in more stamina and longer sex duration.

 

4. You get to dive deeper.


According to many sexologists, the 'doggy' position actually helps with deeper penetration. We can leave aside the debate of whether deeper penetration is really required or not, but for the people who like it, this is the best way to get in. The position allows the cervix to adjust its angle with respect to the vagina that allows a person to penetrate deeper by going underneath it. Also, if the couple decides to use the backdoor (Anal), this very position can also help straighten the anal canal for further, deeper penetration.

 

5. It's perfect for people who like to watch themselves in the mirror.
 

Yes, homemade sex clips are a thing, but with a lot of risks. People have many fantasies when it comes to sex and one among them is watching themselves perform it in the mirror. Psychologically speaking, such behaviour pattern is more common in people who are in 'good shape' in terms of physique. They like to appreciate their ‘perfect body’ which they believe helped them to get to the moment that they are currently experiencing (having sex). I guess, just like the scene in American Psycho. Yeah, enough people do fall for six packs, tight bums and what not. Eh, not me.

 

6. To give your session a bit of a BDSM touch.
 

BDSM is something that not every couple wants to incorporate into the sex life. It can be extreme and rather painful unless you are amongst those who enjoy the more intense types of stimulation. However, as aforementioned, people do have fantasies and a little touch of BDSM is something that can create the perfect climax. Many people like to spank their partners in the middle of sex which turns them on. Also, pulling her hair back and setting her forward posture in the ‘right’ way is also one among such things that turn them on. And if there happens to be a mirror, "ata buoy", there you go. Dominance clearly comes into play here amongst all the pleasure and excitement, but performed in the right way, it can be highly thrilling for both parties. 

 

It is also important to note that every person’s body responds differently. One may like it, one may not. So before hopping right into this position, one must consult with their partners. It is always advisable to try out new positions in your sex lives to keep things very varied and interesting. Doggy Style is just one among them and there are plenty more in the book or for that matter, in your porn cloud storage. If you think that all it takes to have good sex in doggy style is just pure pounding, you may be mistaken. There is a proper way to execute it and if done otherwise, it will be ‘A PAIN IN THE ARSE’, literally
