If you woke up this morning wondering What is superman doggy style?, then you are not alone. Basically, it all started because of Love Island. If you're not familiar with it, it's a British reality show/contest/obsession that the UK public just can't get enough of. People living together on a beautiful island paradise couple up together and the public votes who stays and goes until the last couple get a cash prize. Simple. Addicting. But today, it's getting even more attention than normal, because of a contestant named Marcel.

When Marcel was asked what his favorite sex position was he said, "superman doggy", leading the entire British public to cry in unison: "What the actual eff!?" Because literally nobody besides Marcel seems to have ever heard of this position.

What is it? Well, the general consensus is that it involves having sex in doggy style, but then putting your hands on your hips while you thrust so you look— and, presumably more importantly — feel like superman. Easy enough. But you can see where the confusion came from.

Luckily, folks turned to Twitter to express their confusion and frustration about the whole situation. So if you're wondering what people thought of when they heard "superman doggy", here's a taste of what gifts the internet had to give us:

1. These Cute Photos That Still Don't Explain Anything

Adorable, yes. But I'm still pretty damn confused. I really hope pet costumes aren't involved.

2. Oh, He Knew

He had a plan all along guys, don't stress.

3. This Person Who Wants To Make It A Movement

I mean, we all kind of want to try it now, right?

4. This Woman Who Had To Deal With It

Men around the UK are currently all doing the same damn thing— trying to master this position. It's going to be a trying time.

5. This Person Who Thinks It's Wiser Than It Is

That's a lot of knowing looks for something none of us understand.

6. This Person Who Shares Our Pain

Don't worry, we're all still really confused too. You are not alone in this.

7. This Person Just Reveling In It All

OK, so we may all be confused about why someone would go for superman doggy as their favorite sex position — and we may still be confused as to what that position even is. But there's one thing that we can definitely agree on, that the internet is a damn gift and that Twitter stepped the eff up to the plate with this one.
