Earning its name from the downward angle of penetration, the Pile Driver family has a bit of a rough reputation since it’s often portrayed ‘extremely’ when used in adult entertainment. Although it certainly can be practiced rough, it doesn’t have to be! Either way, we highly recommend that you have adequate cushioning under the woman’s head and neck, and start slow to establish boundaries for what’s comfortable… a sprained neck can be a bit of a mood killer.
In the Tucked variation of the Sinner, the woman lifts her legs off the ground and tucks them towards her body. Having the legs tucked helps make the g-spot the focal point of the penetration; the tighter the tuck, the higher the pleasure, however tucking too much can make it more difficult to maintain penetration without slipping out. We have also found that having the man plant his feet closer to his body, and lifting his groin off the ground to substantially increase the penetration mobility, so make sure to experiment!
Taking Cowgirl horizontal, the Lying variation has the woman lying over the man, in a role-reversed Missionary position. It offers relatively limited mobility compared to the rest of the family, but it makes up for this shortcoming with a much higher degree of intimacy. We found the best pleasure to come from the woman positioning herself a little higher up the man’s body than illustrated, and having the man take care of most of the thrusting from below.
The Standing variation of Twisted Rodeo is much more comfortable for women to hold. The added elevation takes a lot of strain off of her legs, and it is a lot easier on the legs to generate movement. Her hands can be placed on the man, or she can lean back and use the back edge of the couch for more leverage. We recommend both partners explore the whole range of hip movement – rocking front-back, side-side, and in a circular motion on top of in-out penetration to get the full feel of what the position has to offer!
The Mixed variation of the Guard is a placeholder to remind you to mix it up and break symmetry by combining different members of the family. You may find better way to take advantage of your body’s shape, and at the very least, you’ll keep things interesting while you explore. If you have any experiences you’d like to share, please comment below!
TheVictory position features the improved penetration angle of Folded Missionary, but offers more intimacy from not having her legs between you, which isn’t too shabby considering the great freedom of movement offered to the man. To get into the position, the woman lies on her back with her legs up and out to the sides, while the man mounts face-down on top of her.
The 180 variation of Planted Amazon has the woman on her feet and facing away from the man. Like the Amazon 180, the added leg room will likely be appreciated by both partners, as they’ll have a wider range of options to find what’s most comfortable for them. Women may also find it easier to plant their hands on the man’s thighs, as it could be a little difficult to get a lot of lift with them on his abdomen.
The Missionary position is probably the most common first position people try, which is probably related to its simplicity, comfort, and the high level of intimacy experienced. To get into the position, the woman simply lies down on her back while the man lies face-down on top of her. Although initial aiming can be a little difficult at first for the man, getting a helping hand from her can resolve that quite easily. We recommend for both partners to experiment with some hip movement to help keep things from getting stale too quickly.
