The reverse cowgirl (or, rarely, reverse Amazon) is a human sex position in which:
* the man lies on his back
* the woman sits on top of him facing away from him, with his legs between her legs, and with her groin aligned over his for penetration.
It is one of a number of female superior (woman on top) sexual positions.
* Penetration is quite deep.
* The woman can control the depth, intensity and angle of penetration.
* The woman can enjoy the dominant feeling of being in control.
* The man can enjoy the relaxing and otherwise rare opportunity of reclining and receiving pleasure without physical strain.
* Allows the woman to easily stimulate her clitoris on the base of the man's penis and testicles.
* Allows the man to more easily stimulate the woman's clitoris with his fingers.
* Allows the man to stimulate the woman's buttocks or anus.
* Allows the man to caress the woman's breasts from a different angle compared to other positions.
* Provides rear-entry possibility for very obese men if the man lies completely on his back.
* The man can play with the woman's breasts, providing stimulating pleasure for both.
* Neither partner can see the other well.
* Caressing is difficult.
* Some women find supporting their weight on their arms difficult.
* The man may not be able to see his penis entering the woman's vagina.
* Some men may not enjoy taking the submissive position and lack of control.
Since the penis is bent downwards in this position, care needs to be taken to avoid damage to the penis, particularly if it slips out during intercourse
