Leg up missionary position

Legs up missionary position is a sex position similar to the missionary position.

In this position the woman lies on her back and the man lies or kneels in alignment with the vagina or anus. The man will hold (or press with his shoulder) the woman's legs upwards to adapt the positioning of the woman's pelvis. Some people believe that this position achieves a faster and/or more intense rate of female orgasm. This can be accomplished through lifting the women's legs higher upwards, allowing the man's penis to penetrate more fully.

A variation of this position can be to alternate the legs that are pushed up; as pushing upward both of woman's legs can be tiring for the partner - as well as some women are stimulated more if only one leg is pushed up. Furthermore, there are also degrees of pressure that can be applied to the legs, which result in different sensations for both partners.

It is also known, mainly in Scotland, as "The Magic Position", a reference to the lyrics of the Patrick Wolf album and song of the same name.
