Sex positions are like coffee orders—everyone likes something a little different, but there are a few standbys that are just complete winners every time (we're looking at you, pumpkin spiced latte). So to figure out what guys are typically craving in bed, we surveyed some Men's Health readers about what they love, what they want more of, and what they're hoping for on a special occasion. Check out the results below, plus quotes from these guys to further explain their answers:
His All-Time Favourite Sex Position:
Most men chose this primal move as the top contender. We get it: It feels a little naughty and a lot amazing. Here's what men had to say about it:
"My wife always orgasms in this position, and you can't beat the view."
"It feels intense! Like you're both giving and taking all you have."
"It feels like I'm going deeper, and it's more primal than others."
"Deeper penetration, good view."

His close second was the classic girl-on-top position, so you can take the reins and do exactly what feels good to you. Here's what they had to say about it:
"Love being able to see her on top and really getting into it. Also allows easy access to assist in stimulating her with my fingers at the same time."
"The view, and I can touch her breasts!"
"Lets your partner take the lead and drive the pace."
"I like it when a woman feels more in control. It allows her to relax and have more fun."
Yes, seriously. Of all the moves we listed in our survey (seven, to be exact), this was the third most popular answer for their favorite position. Why is it an oldie-but-a-goodie? Let them explain:
"Best combination of comfort and intimacy"
"It's simple, intimate, and if you know what your girl likes and variations of the position it can feel awesome for both."
"Getting creative is always good, but you just can't beat missionary. It's the bread and butter of sex positions
"Because it's sensual, and I can kiss my girl and play with her breasts."
The Position He Wants to Do Way More Often:
If you ever felt shy about taking control in bed, here's something to boost your confidence: Most men really want to put this move on heavy rotation. Read why they can't get enough of it:
"She has control to do what gives her the most pleasure"
"The view, it feels amazing, and why not? From time to time, we like her to do some of the work."
"It's really hot to see her enjoyment and as a plus, you get to learn her preference in speed and intensity."
"Because I tend to last longer."
We're starting to notice a trend here. Apparently, these guys are really interested in seeing their partners take the lead in bed. With this backwards twist on Cowgirl, you'll get to call the shots…while also giving a pretty awesome show. Here's what guys had to say about it:
"It's really sexy to do in front of a mirror."
"Great view of her ass."
"It's like doggie style, but I do less work."
"It's just sexy and it makes me feel like it's all about her. The view is amazing, too."
Surprise, surprise (#sarcasm). Men are craving more doggie style in the bedroom…or, well, anywhere. Here's why they love it:
"Very hot views."
"I think it can be a very sexy position, especially outside the bedroom."
"Seems very animalistic."
The Position That's Awesome for Special Occasions (But Not an Everyday Necessity):
Consider this the double-chocolate-chip frozen mocha swirl. It's blow-your-mind amazing, but it's not something you need to have every single day. Similarly, this standing sex move is incredibly hot, but it can also be a lot of work for your guy. Here's why they love it in small doses (but if you want to do it more often, just find a countertop that's the perfect height and hop on):
"It's fun to show off your strength and masculinity. But this position requires a lot of strength, so it's best in small doses."
"It's extremely dominant, passionate, and gives you all the control. Unfortunately, it's normally an odd angle that isn't the best for either of you, it's difficult to maintain for any period of time, and you can't see much of your lover's body."
"It's a hot way to transition from one position to another."
"We break things around the house that way, which is fine, but super-hot sex can get expensive."
