Reverse cowgirl is a sex position that feels both experimental and accessible. This is a variation on cowgirl where the penetrating partner falls down and the receiving partner rises to the top. In this instance, however, the receiving partner is turned around.

It's okay if reverse cowgirl doesn't create any fireworks for you. This is a skill that requires some practice and communication to get comfortable with. Here are our top tips for getting back in the saddle if you want to reverse cowgirl, in case you do think to try that in bed tonight!

Begin Gently

Receiving partners may not always have the ability to set the pace, so it's refreshing to try reverse cowgirl. This is a position that works best when one person sets the pace. Let the top decide. The penetrating partner may get more involved if you feel comfortable.

Let the Rider be in control

These positions, in which one partner faces away, can be exciting and mysterious. It's as if you're listening to the other even though it's difficult to make eye contact. Sometimes it can be nice to smile conspiratorially at each other and turn around.

Try a seated version

Instead of trying it on the bed, you can also practice reverse cowgirl in a chair or on the edge of a bed. In this position, have the penetrating partner sit down, feet touching the floor, while the receiving partner sits down on their lap, facing forward. This variation is preferable for many because the penetrating partner is nice and close: i.e., can easily use their hands to play with breasts or pecs, grab their partner’s thighs, etc. 

We hope these ideas help you bring some kink to your bedroom. Try the reverse cowgirl tonight, and we promise you would not regret it!
