British psychologist Barbara Santini explained on peachesandscreams.co.uk how favorite sexual positions are related to a person’s personality. “They subconsciously indicate exactly what you’re looking for in a relationship and what your individual characteristics are. It’s a window into your inner thoughts and desires.” She went on to explain what the five most common sexual positions reveal about a person’s personality: MISSIONARY POSITION The woman lies on her back and the man is on top. What it says about your personality: Santini said that if your favorite sex position is missionary, it means you value intimacy in the bedroom. “Women are ultimately looking for a connection with their partner when they both look into each other’s eyes. They want a deeper bond with their partner and are probably looking for peace in their everyday lives.” She further revealed that people who like this position are probably shy and usually don’t express their needs. Men who like missionary, on the other hand, are hunter-gatherers, have a need to protect others and refuse to be pressured. “Sometimes you can be seen as unadventurous and stuck up, you often seek reassurance because you may doubt your skills in the bedroom and need reassurance. You also like to play it safe,” added the expert. Photo gallery (6) Source: Getty Images COWBOY The woman is up and the man is lying on his back. What it says about your personality: Women who like this position enjoy dominating their male partner in the bedroom. “You are self-confident and enjoy the attention of others. You are assertive and wear the pants in relationships. You are also adventurous and have a positive outlook on life.” They are also usually career-successful women. The psychologist also stated that if a man likes a “cowgirl”, it means that he is probably submissive. He also wants not only him to be satisfied in the bedroom, but also his other half. “These men prefer to be led by their partner. They will happily go along for the ride and will not question their partner’s decisions. They like to make their partners happy.” One of the most prominent traits of people who like this position is to avoid any type of conflict because it worries them. In addition, such people like to impress their partners, they are stylish and proud of their appearance.

What it says about your personality: People with this position love to show affection and need security in life. They can sometimes be shy and prefer not to be the center of attention in social settings. It is also likely that these people are naturally passionate, sensitive and value a long-term relationship. “You also have a caring side and are attentive to people who mean a lot to you. Ultimately, you want your loved ones to respect you. You also value relaxation in your everyday life,” Santini explained. Men who like the spoon position care about their partners. Simply put, they want to feel good and orgasm. However, it can also indicate that they are a bit lazy in certain areas of life. This is because this position does not require much effort. But the opposite side of these people is a certain degree of selfishness, due to which they do not consider others in some situations. While this position has many advantages, you should try other positions and pay attention to each other’s needs, otherwise one of you may realize that the other is too dependent or just plain lazy and the end will soon come.

What it says about your personality: If this is your favorite position, you probably don’t care much about intimacy. “You want your partner to take control and this can indicate that you enjoy being submissive. At a subliminal level, you prefer their leadership and trust them fully.” If this position is preferred by a woman rather than a man, it can be a signal to a man that the woman is not very passionate in the bedroom. It can indicate that you are reserved, unromantic and aloof. This sex position is not as intimate as the others, which is fine for you. You are also a practical person who avoids drama or conflict.

What it says about your personality: You are both adventurous people who are excited by spontaneity. If women like this position, it means that they are independent, confident, do not like to wait and are very busy. They know what they want and where they are going in life. However, it can also point to an excessive interest in cleanliness, as the bedclothes remain almost untouched during standing sex. “You can also be a bit overbearing with friends and family, although they love you for it, because it just shows that you do it with good intentions.” Photo gallery (6) Source: Getty Images If a man likes standing sex, it means that he is an independent career type who may not want to settle down easily. “You like adventure, travel and fun activities. You are 100% spontaneous and have many friends because you like to laugh and are sociable. You can often be found in society or at the gym,” added the expert.
