Cowgirl position

Also called the woman on top, it allows the female to control frequency of thrusting as well as depth of penetration. Since gravity is working against the semen’s ability to reach the cervix in the shortest possible time, many couples believe that it is a great way to avoid pregnancy. Then again, medical professionals do not see any correlation with the position of the woman’s cervix and the ability of the sperm to swim towards it.

Standing Position

Both man and woman are standing while facing to each other. Usually, the man carries the woman and wraps her arms and legs around his body. Again, the general notion is that the sperm defies gravity, increasing the difficulty to reach the cervix of the woman.

The 69 Position
