I really think it's possible for most people to find some version of doggy they'd enjoy, because there are so many ways to mix it up with this position. It can be more or less intimate, more or less intense, more or less... well, just animalistic. But if it's not for you, then it's not for you, obviously. But it's unusual for a sex position to bring out such strong feelings— both positive and negative— you don't hear people railing against spooning or girl on top. So how can something as silly as a sex position been so evocative?
It comes down to the individual person, and looking at some individual explanations, they are really varied. Between preferences, health issues, attitudes— it's a massive mixed bag when it comes to doggy style. So here are real women saying what doggy style feels like for them:
