The Cowgirl position is a woman-on-top lovemaking position where the woman kneels astraddle the man and may incline forward on their arms. The man is relaxed while savouring the sensations she awakens in him, plus the woman has more important flexibility of motion with a great deal of mastery over depth and angle of penetration. Both mates can view one another while they have sexual intercourse.

The Missionary position is one of the most popular man-on-top sex position. Althogh nearly all beginners start with this position, the missionary position is still widely practised by many people as it provides a great level of intimacy.

To assume this position, the woman should lie on her back with her legs apart. The man settles between her legs, and one of the two should guide his penis to her vagina. He can support himself on his forearms or simply rest his entire weight upon her, as desired, and she has some freedom regarding where her legs should be; this freedom gives rise to a number of variations in the position, which will be covered further down.

Many couples start with (and return to) the missionary position because it delivers two of the great appeals of sex: full-body contact, and a penis inside a vagina. Additionally, partners are able to kiss, caress, talk and generally exhibit intimate behavior. While the woman does not have much freedom of movement, being constrained by her partner's arms and possibly his weight, this is not necessarily a downside, as women report being unbothered by, or even desiring, the experience of being "taken" in this way. Finally, the missionary position lends itself to a great variety of variations, which can help provide the things it does not lend itself to: intense, athletic sexual stimulation, visual stimulation and freedom of movement for the woman.
