What men hate

Contrary to the common belief, that all men love every part of sex and that sex is perfect when you are with the right partner. Many men also have issues and things they hate about certain sex positions.


As much as this sex position is loved, like all other positions, there are some downfalls to them. When it comes to missionary, many men also find that it is common, boring, typical, and routine. Plus some men say it makes them have cramps in their buttocks.

Standing up

This is a dream in a fantasy land for most men as it is too difficult of a position to not only line up right but to also sustain. As well, if it is lined up right, it becomes hard to actually do any thrusting or actions that can be pleasurable.


This next statement is one that many men find to be a very scary thought, and this is what men hate about this position. It is easy for the woman who is riding the man to go up to far and go down at the wrong angle while riding him. Meaning it is very easy to have a broken penis from this sex position.

The one thing men hate about this position is that it can be hard to breathe.


What makes for a great cuddling position isn’t also always a great sex position. Men find that spooning is too hard to line up, too hard to make pleasurable, and also involves an arm falling asleep.

Doggy style

There is a lot that men hate about this position. Most men find that they get rug burn, their quads cramp, it is too easy to slip out, and it is also very easily possible to break a penis. Additionally, with height differences, it can be very difficult to reach their woman’s breasts.


Men do not like the fact that when they pull out, there might be something on their penis that they were not expecting. Additionally, men also do not like this because many men are aware that their woman may be doing this to please them, and that they are actually unsure of this new position.

What women love

Doggy style

Women love this because of the primal, rugged, sexy, and risky feeling they get from this position. As well, many women also love that their man gets to go deeper in them while also grabbing on to them in this very heated and aggressive position.


The women who do love anal sex, say it brings them an empowering feeling while also having the thrill of doing something that is considered naughty. Plus many women also say it feels amazing.


As much as men love being in charge, women seem to love it even more. Although many women love having to do no work, sometimes it feels great to be the one to break the sweat. Women also have admitted that when they ride their boyfriend, they also love the fact that they choose the pace, and can go deeper when they are in control.

Legs over shoulders

Women love this position because it allows their man and to thrust extremely hard and fast without hurting them.

Romantic Cuddle

Most women prefer slower, more intimate love-making, so they can kiss their man, and feel the love and the connection they share. There are many women that can reach orgasm only in these kinds of positions. They feel loved, and secure, and relaxed to the maximum so they can have a more intense orgasm.

The best way to reach this is to sit across each other. Slide into his lap and sit on top of him. Cross your legs behind his back and slowly start to move while he cuddles and kisses you the entire time.

What women hate

As odd as this may seem, the same positions women love certain things about, they also have certain things they hate about said positions too.


Similarly to men, women find this position to be too vanilla, boring, and not as satisfactory for them when compared to it being able to do the job for men (more often than not).

Doggy style

Many women do not like this position because they are self-conscious of their buttocks. Additionally, women also do not like the fact that the enjoyment comes to a standstill every time his penis slips out due to the angles and positioning.


Anal sex is still a very taboo subject, and many women find that the stigma surrounding it is something they do not like about that position. Many women also do not like it because it can get messy and it can also be very painful.

Standing up

This sex position is a fantasy for many women. However, it is one that in reality has a lot of traits that women do not like. They feel very heavy, and also find that once they are lined up properly, it is hard to move in ways that create pleasure.


This is plenty of women’s favorite positions to cuddle in. However, many women do not like this position for sex because it is an awkward angle and doesn’t allow for their man to be very deep in them.

When looking at what men and women love and hate about certain sex positions, it is important to remember that everyone is different. The best way to know for sure about what your boyfriend or girlfriend loves and hates about certain sex positions is to have open and honest discussions about it

There is no need to be embarrassed or feel uncomfortable or guilty. Instead, you should feel happy, loving, committed, and glad that you can both be so honest and open with each other. Plus, your sex life will improve greatly after you both discuss this.
