One of the biggest drawbacks of reverse cowgirl is the strain it places on the woman’s legs and muscles. Climbing the Mountain eases that stress while providing her with more support so she can maintain the position for longer than usual. It also puts the woman on top so she can set the pace and take charge.
Intermediate: a moderately challenging sex position for people who want to try something new
Pros & Cons
+ Provides extra support than other cowgirl-style positions
+ Puts the woman on top so she can take control
– Still strains her legs and muscles more than other positions
The man lies on his back with his legs bent, like he’s about to do a sit-up. The woman stands over his waist while facing his feet and slowly lowers herself down on top of him. Next, she leans forward, bracing herself against his legs for increased support. Finally, she grabs his ankles and he does the same to help lock them into position. Instead of the typical up-and-down movement of cowgirl, Climbing the Mountain is better suited for a rocking motion. This places much less strain on her muscles and makes this version of cowgirl much easier to do than others.
