Article: Doggy Style, Its Benefits, And Why I Love It

When I am most (willingly) sexually desperate for the touch and attention of another individual the most natural think for me is to get on all fours, lean down onto my forearms and look up at the object of my desire pleadingly.

If I’m a pup at the time then you can bet that a whimper and a well-timed booty waggle will also be brought in to play. If I’m a sub then a timid ‘Please Sir’.

No matter the scenario, the general premise is always the same: I like it doggy style.

And why the heck not?

Woof.

Gossip mags and sites might try to wow us with new discoveries from the karma sutra, or encourage us to ‘mix things up’ if we really wanted to get sexual satisfaction but most of us are pretty content with having a few signature postures that we know and love. Sure, mixing things up from time-to-time can be nice, but there’s no need to turn to movements and postures so drastic that we’d need to take up yoga and invest in a personal trainer in order to even begin attempting them.

Doggy style is a classic for a reason: It works and it works well, for many people and with many easy modifications that make it accessible to almost anyone.

How To Do Doggy?

The basic posture is as follows: One individual gets on all fours, the other gets behind them. From there the hips, arms, and legs can be used to find the best angle for pleasure penetration and props, sex furniture, or other sexual aids can be included for additional assistance or enjoyment if so desired.

Doggy style can also be done standing up, resting over a table or other prop, or even on tipy-toes if you want to be really adventurous…but then we’re getting back in to personal trainer territory.

Why Do Doggy Style?

There are so many different reasons why doggy style is beneficial as a sexual position, with the most unimaginative of the bunch being that it’s a natural sexual posture for humans. Appeals to nature sound intelligent but they can lead to pretty stupid logical fallacies. Still, the sense of primal gratification felt when ‘presenting’ for doggy is a physical gesture that sends my heart a flutter, so it’s not completely without its merits.

Perhaps more beneficial for our current sexual dynamics is the diversity and sense of emotional and sexual empowerment that doggy style can enable.

Yes, I’ve put quite a lot of focus on how doggy style is a submissive posture for me, but it’s one that chose to get in to and one where I feel the most confident in my body. I’m not perfect, I have insecurities, and a lot of them still revolve around my stomach. So doggy, in a way, allows me to enjoy sex even on the days where I’m not feeling mentally up to cowgirl. Of course, I challenge myself when and where my fortitude will allow, but sometimes I’d rather fuck with a partner than invest in telling my pre-conceived notions of what my body should look like to go fuck themselves. And, although it’s far from ideal, many people get an equal amount of solace from the position of doggy style.

For some people doggy style is also more physically comfortable and/or freeing than other conventional sex positions. Plus-sized individuals, for example, will often say how doggy can help them enjoy sex with more convenience and gratification and, when I was my wonderfully chubby self this was certainly my experience.

As a chubby Peach I also found that sex props took doggy style from a seven to a solid thirteen in terms of sexual enjoyment, and a simple strap/scarf/pillow could free me even more.

Indeed, the ease through which doggy style can be modified for various different individuals is one of its strongest benefits, and people can become incredibly creative with nothing beyond the items in their own home or work to purchase many fanciful (and often effective) doggy style products.

All of this gives doggy style the ability to foster a sense of incredibly sexual confidence and liberation, which makes it a posture worth trying.

Doggy Style (And Then Some)

If doggy style is great in general then imagine its potential when you get more specific too.

I’ve already discussed the rather potent role it can have in the puppy play movement (a given perhaps), but even the most casual of kinksters will likely find that doggy style and their pre-existing sexual proclivities go very well together indeed.

Take, for example, casual BDSM.

As it’s an all-fours ‘presenting’ posture, doggy style is already the primary posture that some might adopt to receive a spanking or to get hit safely and effectively with a paddle or whip.

It easily allows for blindfolding and the introduction of additional elements to torture and tantalize a person. Sure – a beginner’s blindfold might be slightly see through, but when you’re facing away with that dubious blindfold on then suddenly the trust element is amplified further.

When thinking sensation play it’s easy to take a (faux) feather duster, a string of tassels, or a pinwheel to the arching back of someone in a doggy style posture. Moving too much might vary the posture in either desirable or undesirable ways, too, adding a thrilling sense of risk.

Sensation pay individuals can equally play with candles and ice, and the way the pool quite beautifully on the back of someone in this posture.

Then, of course, a blindfolded person may never full know when penetration is to come (should that be what they consented to prior to play).

And I haven’t even mentioned vibrators and dildos in this appraisal (at least, not directly).

The only exception to this rule that I will make is to say this: A butt plug with a tail/gemstone and the visual display of doggy style go very well together indeed.

Final Thoughts

I admit, I’m probably a little biased when it comes to doggy style, because I really do adore it will all of my heart. However, I stand by the fact that this posture is one that can bring to the table (literally or otherwise) and incredible sense of potential and self-empowerment.

Try doggy for yourself, or let me know why it does or doesn’t work for you in the comments section.

I may be a ‘Pup’ at heart but, when it comes to posture, I am happy to go full-on Dog.
