What Is the Cowboy Sex Position?

You probably already know about the traditional Cowgirl position, but have you heard of the Cowboy?

The Cowboy sex position is the opposite of the popular classic Cowgirl. Rather than the woman being on top, her man will take control of the reigns in this round!

This position is simple for both parties involved, suitable for beginners, and a popular choice, allowing the male partner full control.

In the Cowboy, the male partner straddles his partner’s hips and takes control of the depth of penetration and level of stimulation.

How to Do the Cowboy Sex Position

It’s simple and suitable for most couples. To get into position, the female partner should lie on her back while the penetrating partner straddles her hips. The female partner’s legs should be straight out and flat against the bed.

There you have it! There’s nothing particularly complicated about the position. However, the male partner will have to have a bit of flexibility with his penis to enter his partner and get pleasure from the experience successfully.

Tips and Tricks for the Cowboy Sex Position

To enhance the experience, add a pillow or sex wedge under the female partner’s hips to create a more comfortable and pleasurable angle. This can also help with shallow penetration, a common issue with this position.

Another tip is to add clitoral stimulation using either hands or sex toys. The Cowboy position allows easy access to the clitoris, leading to more intense orgasms for the receiving partner.

If you’re feeling adventurous, try switching up the position and transitioning into other positions, such as Missionary or Cowgirl. This can add even more variety and excitement to your sex life.

It’s important to communicate with your partner throughout the experience and ensure you’re comfortable and enjoying yourselves. If, at any point, either person experiences discomfort or pain, stop and adjust or switch to a different position.

Safety Precautions

While the Cowboy sex position can be a steamy and pleasurable experience for many couples, take safety precautions to avoid injuries. Penile fractures can occur if the penis is forcefully bent or at an awkward angle during intercourse.

What Are the Benefits of the Cowboy?

First and foremost, this position allows for complete control by the male partner. If you’re someone who enjoys being in charge or wants to take your sexual experiences to the next level, then this position is perfect for you.

Not only does it allow for complete control, but it also allows for better penetration and powerful sensations. The entry angle can be adjusted easily, leading to more intense orgasms for both partners.

Furthermore, the Cowboy position offers plenty of opportunities for eye contact and intimacy between partners, which can help foster a stronger emotional connection.

As with any sex position, there are some drawbacks to consider. For one, this sex position bends the penis in a unique way that the male partner may not be used to if he’s only experimented with Missionary or Doggy style. 

The position is also not great for couples who prefer women-on-top sex positions or getting it on from behind! 

Continue for a summary of the pros and cons to trying this particular sex position. 



In our opinion, the Cowboy is worth an attempt as long as both partners are willing and adventurous enough to try!

Other Must-Try Sex Positions

While the Cowboy is a great choice for those looking to try something new, there are plenty of other steamy positions to explore. Here are a few more options to consider:

C.A.T (Coital Alignment Technique)​

Have you heard of the Coital Alignment Technique, or C.A.T for short? It’s a sex position gaining popularity because it offers intense clitoral stimulation and can lead to mind-blowing orgasms for the female partner.

The female partner lies in a missionary-like position, her back flat on the bed, and her man comes between her legs. Either partner then moves back and forward so that the base of the partner’s penis stimulates the clitoris. This position is perfect for those who want to focus on clitoral stimulation, slow sex, and intimacy.

The Gemini​

The Gemini sex position is a fun and exciting twist on classic Missionary that’s perfect for couples who want to switch things up in the bedroom.

The male sits straight up on the bed to get into this position. Tip: Lean against the headboard for back support. The female partner faces him, inserts him inside her while straddling his lap, and then bends backward so that her head is against his legs. It might take some trial and error to get it right, avoid accidental slippage, and get maximum pleasure, but it’s certain to make for one hell of an evening! 

Cowgirl ​

The Cowgirl sex position is similar to the Cowboy, but with the female partner in control and riding on top of her man.

Women adore this position because it allows for complete control over the depth and speed of penetration, and it’s a great choice for those who need rapid stimulation to reach orgasm.

Reverse Cowgirl​

The Reverse Cowgirl puts the female partner in control again, but this time facing away from her partner. This position allows for deep penetration and the opportunity to stimulate the vagina and G-spot.

Missionary Position​

The Missionary position is a classic for a reason. It lets you have face-to-face intimacy and can be easily adjusted to accommodate different levels of stimulation and penetration.

The Spread Eagle ​

The Spread Eagle sex position is perfect for couples who enjoy deep penetration while maintaining eye contact. In this position, the female partner lies on her back with her knees and legs spread wide while the male partner kneels and enters from the front.


The Cowboy sex position is an exciting and unique way for couples to enhance their sex life. It offers deep penetration and easy access to the clitoris, making it a great choice for those who want powerful sensations during sex.

There are also a few other hot sex positions, such as the regular Cowgirl position, C.A.T, Gemini, Reverse Cowgirl position, Missionary, and the Spread Eagle that we recommend you give a shot! 

Experimenting with different positions can add excitement and variety to your sex life and help you discover what works best for you and your partner.

As always, communication and consent are key to any sexual encounter. So saddle up and give the Cowboy a try.
