Hi Em and Lo,

I need help. I’ve never had sex where I am on top. I guess because I do not feel completely comfortable with my body. But also, I get scared that I will not move the right way.

…ooo…by the way … you may find that he likes laying back and being spoiled. You could start with massage. Anyway, I’d suggest lots of exploratory kissing and caressing before taking him inside you. You can sit or lay on him to do this. Remember to put on the condom before your private parts meet.


I agree with Figleaf – men seem to appreciate enthusiasm and a willingness to learn and innovate, so feel free to ask him for tips. 🙂 I’d suggest reading up as much as you can as well – good knowledge is never wasted and also shows your enthusiasm and willingness to innovate….:-)


Try both directions, looking at his face and looking at his feet (reverse cowgirl). I find the reverse cowgirl position much easier on the legs. Plus, you can get your clit and his balls some hand attention while riding.
