The plough is a compelling — if somewhat demanding — variation on the classic rear-entry, doggy-style position. It requires a fair amount of upper-body lifting strength on the part of the man, but offers deep penetration and an excellent, potentially g-spot-stimulating attack angle.
The Plough description
To get in the plough position, the woman should lie face down on a bed, table or other similar surface. The man then moves in close between her legs and remains standing on the floor. Finally, he reaches down and lifts up her hips so that her vagina is aligned straight-on with his penis. Penetration is initiated. He continues to hold her hips up as he thrusts in and out of her.
While the woman can twist and flex her hips around somewhat while in the plough, this is primarily a male-active, female-passive position. Too much movement from the woman can make it difficult for the man to maintain a good, solid grip on her hips. Many couples enjoy this position because it allows for easy fine-tuning of the angle of friction within the vagina. The man can lift his partner’s hips slightly lower or higher until he’s hitting just the right spot.
Many couples also enjoy the plough because it communicates a sense of male dominance and female submission. The man is the active party, using his muscular strength and power to orient his partners body to his own. He is in control and she is giving in to his masculine, sexually-aggressive assertiveness as he holds her body up and thrusts his erection into her. Of course, the position doesn’t have to be tied to a dominance/submission scenario, but for couples that enjoy this popular dynamic, it’s a great fit.
A beneficial side-effect of the plough is that it provides a particularly outstanding workout for the male partner. While sex in general is good exercise, holding up the woman’s hips while moving his penis in and out requires a healthy dose of physical exertion. Men should expect to feel a nice burn in their arms and mid-section after an enthusiastic round in the plough position.
