Sexual Positions - Rear Entry

Rear entry intercourse is when the man's penis enters the woman's vagina when she has her back to him. It is not the same as anal intercourse, which is intercourse with a man's penis inserted in his partner's rectum. Rear entry intercourse can be done with the woman standing but bending over and supporting herself, or with the woman on her hands and knees and the man kneeling behind her (commonly known as doggy style). Or rear entry can be done with both partners lying on their sides, her back to his front.

Rear entry allows for deep penetration and vigorous pushing if the couple wants that. The man's hands are free to caress the woman and he can reach her clitoris easily. It is more difficult for the woman to caress the man in this position than in others because she has to reach behind her. The drawbacks of rear entry intercourse are that the penis entering from behind gives very little stimulation to the clitoris and some couples do not like the lack of face-to-face intimacy.
