Dislike of doggy style sex


This position is too animalistic for my liking. I can't do it without picturing a bull mounting a cow!
Lisa, 20, volunteer, Aberystwyth

My boyfriend loves doggy style sex, I think it's because it gives him a feeling of domination. That's what I don't like about it: being submissive and unpowerful. I prefer being in control!
Sarah, 28, public relations officer, London

Sex from behind hurts. I don't really know why, it's probably because of the position of my boyfriend's penis, but it's really not nice for me.
Rachel, 22, student, Truro

I hate this position because I can't see or touch my partner. I basically feel like he's having fun all by himself  while I'm forced to look at the wall and try keep my balance.
Amy, 26, sales assistant, London

I don't enjoy doggy style sex, I like to look into my partners eyes when we have sex. Plus it's easy for him to get carried away and I prefer it when I can control the tempo.
Shelly, 52, manager, Cannock

I can't bare it. I panic about my bum looking massive and my boobs and belly hanging down - surely it cannot be attractive!
Carol, 44, dinner lady, Colchester

It's called doggy style for a reason! I personally think that reason is that if you've pulled a dog at least you don't have to look at them. I'm no dog and I only want to sleep with men who want to look into my eyes - not someone who's just there for my body.
Samantha, 19, model, Croydon
