Although sex-related studies are always changing, one thing that these studies keep telling us is that doggy style is the most preferred sex position. From the United States to Europe to Canada to, possibly, many countries in between, doggy style is the position that keeps people happy and coming back for more. Yes, it's just that good, for both men and women. Women love it because it stimulates the G-spot and men love it because, well, what's there not to love?

But can such a great position, a position so adored and celebrated the world over (I mean, I throw a parade in its honor every chance I get), be even better? Are we fortunate enough to live in an existence that can allow for such a thing? It might not seem possible, being that it's so fantastic, but here's some fun breaking news: the doggy style sex you're having now can get even better. With just a few quick tweaks, you can actually take the enjoyment factor of doggy style up and through the roof for both you and your partner.

While some of these things you may have already incorporated into doggy style, now it's time to use them all at once like the true multi-tasker you never knew you were.

1Make Eye Contact

Eye contact during sex isn't just hot, but intimate. "Some women prefer to look at their partner during [sex] because it enhances intimacy for them," Dr. Jennifer Caudle, Family Physician and Assistant Professor at Rowan University tells Bustle. "For this reason, some may not prefer doggy style."

So how do we remedy this for those who don't like the missing intimacy and those who want to make it better? By looking over your shoulder at your partner and locking eyes with them. It's also fun to see how much they're enjoying themselves, too.

2Modify The Position

No matter the position, it can be modified to be even better. If the missionary position can be modified to be more interesting, then doggy style definitely can, too. "Lie flat on your stomach, legs together," Jessica Drake, adult performer and sex educator, tells Bustle. "Same amazingly tight friction as 'special' missionary, and depending on the size/shape of your partner, possible G-spot stimulation."

It's also easier in this position to clench your vaginal and thigh muscles, making that tight friction that Drake mentions, even tighter. Like, amazingly tight.

3Talk Dirty

Nothing spruces up a sexual moment like talking dirty. If talking dirty is good for your relationship and it's fun, why would you not want to include it as much as possible? From telling your partner what feels good, what you want more of, or totally going off on some random sexual story that just feels right in the moment, talking dirty will definitely take doggy style to a whole new level. And, yes, you want that whole new level.  

4Add More Stimulation

Whether you choose to reach for a butt plug, for anal stimulation, a vibrator (or your fingers), for clitoral stimulation, or both for all-over stimulation, sex toys are the easiest way to make doggy style better. It also ups your chances of experiencing the elusive blended orgasm at once.

“For women who can achieve vaginal orgasms, for added pleasure and the potential of clitoral and vaginal orgasm, add manual stimulation and/or toys during [sex]," Holistic Sexologist and Sexuality Educator, Lisa Hochberger, tells Bustle. “There is toy that I recommend women try during vaginal intercourse called the Satisfyer. It will provide women with an overwhelming amount of clitoral stimulation during vaginal intercourse.”

5Get Comfy

When you're on your hands and knees in traditional doggy style it can do a number on your wrists and knees, but pillows can make a big difference here. As Dr. Claudle points out, doggy style can be uncomfortable for some women in different ways; one of those ways is the pressure put on the joints. So an easy way to fix that is with pillows or by lowering your upper body down, so you're putting pressure on your forearms instead of your wrists.

6Arch Your Back

If you feel like you absolutely want (read: need) your partner to get even deeper during doggy style, then arching your back helps. It moves the cervix in such a way that you'll get maximum deepness, so much so that once you arch, you'll feel the difference immediately.

7Give It 100 Percent

Even if you're the one on the receiving end up of doggy style, that doesn't mean you can't get involved. In addition to talking dirty, you can also add to it by moving, too. Whether you choose to push hard against your partner's groin for deeper penetration or to swerve your hips around, to give you both a different sensation, it's important to be an active part of doggy style if you want to make it even better.

Although you're under no obligation to like doggy style, if you do, then you might want to make the extra effort to make it even better. Why? Well, simply because you can, and both you and your partner deserve it.
