And the very best you-on-top sex positions make the most of this intimate interplay. But often, it is. Tried-and-true favorites are classics for a reason: They offer fun, excitement, and connection in equal measure—no stretching, balancing, or doing the splits required. Not to mention, the you-on-top sex positions space extends far beyond cowgirl and reverse cowgirl. Mounting your partner during sex has been around as long as sex itself, so the genre has seen its fair share of inventive iterations. Top sex positions can get as soft and intimate, as bold and dominant, or as adventurous and acrobatic as you want them to. The tone is yours to set. The Merger is Classic Cowgirl, modified just enough to keep things interesting. Have your penetrating partner sit at the foot of the bed, with their knees bent and their toes grazing the floor. Then, climb on top of them and kneel facing forward.
