Woman on Top Variations

As mentioned in the previous chapter, the Kama Sutra actually only addresses a few woman-on-top positions. But since the woman-on-top category of positions is becoming increasingly popular today, there are many other variations on this basic theme that couples can have fun trying. Unfortunately, modern lovers cannot necessarily take credit for these enjoyable moves. It is believed some of the following positions may have been inspired by those found in ancient Indian, Arabian, or Asian texts.

Asian Cowgirl

The Asian cowgirl position involves the woman squatting on top of the man, rather than being on her knees. This can be tricky because the woman doesn't have as much support, and all of her weight is resting on the man. It can also quickly prove uncomfortable for both partners.

Leaning Forward

For a more intimate feeling while in the woman-on-top position, the woman can lean forward and bring her face close to the man's. This allows for kissing and talking, and also varies the sensations of intercourse. Obviously, she should only lean forward as far as it remains comfortable to the man. Occasionally, the man will find it uncomfortable or even painful if the woman leans too far forward during sexual intercourse while on top of him.

Leaning Back

In this position, the woman leans back toward the man's knees. The woman supports herself with her hands and arms, which can make this position tiring for the woman after a while. But this position allows for greater freedom of movement and exploration possibilities — and also provides the man with an enjoyable view — so many couples find it exciting. She should lean back slowly, until she confirms how far back she can go without making the man physically uncomfortable.

Reverse Woman-on-Top

A variation of the basic woman-on-top position involves the woman sitting on top of the man with her back to him, so she is facing his feet. In the basic version of this position, the woman is supporting her weight on her knees, similar to if she were kneeling.

The reverse woman-on-top position is also known by a variety of other nicknames. You may hear it referred to as the “reverse cowgirl,” the “reciprocal view of the posterior,” or even “the reverse Amazon.”

If you are really dexterous, you can try starting out in the basic girl-on-top position and then — while your man is still inside of you — spinning around to the reverse cowgirl position.

The Swan Sport

A variation of the reverse woman-on-top involves the woman on top of the man, facing his feet, with her knees bent and drawn up so her feet are flat on the bed at the man's sides. She would then thrust her hips rapidly.
