Anyway, achieving this carnal challenge is not physically demanding. In fact, I’m pretty sure I’ve tried this before, but probably inadvertently while changing positions. My memory is a big “meh.” Anything that takes my hands out of play always seems less fun. Touching is super cool!
But what troubles me about the Bootyful View is the “why it’s great” explanation. Specifically, “Since you are facing away, you can feel totally uninhibited and your partner can enjoy the thrill of the ride.”
Facing away helps you feel uninhibited?
I think the best part (ok, well not the best part, but certainly part of the fun/enjoyment/pleasure) of sex is looking at your partner’s face. That’s how you get the cues that they like what you are doing and allows them to pick up on your visual cues as well. Also, seeing the look of intense enjoyment on your partner’s face is a turn on.
Certainly, there are times when “flip me over and fuck me hard” is the plat du jour, but that’s not because you are the delicate wallflower that needs to demurely glance away because you can’t get it on while someone is looking at your face, but because it feels good.
Being uninhibited during sex is actually part of the point, but suggesting that not looking at your partner will help you feel uninhibited, that’s a big fat #fail in my book. And is the exact opposite of empowerment.
Although it’s so good to see a position where the man can sit for a change, after straining his back standing around nonchalantly in all those other ones.
