Dear Auntie Lisa
I am female, age 23. I enjoy a healthy s3x life. We are comfortable with each other, and do not mind experimenting in bed including trying out several different positions.
Although I enjoy the position often referred to as ‘doggie style’, occassionally I encounter some loud noise, due to trapped gas. I have never experienced air in my vag1na before, and wondered if this was a common occurrence with this position.
It bothers me, and I am worried that future partners will not be so OK with it. As he is my first s3xual partner, I have nothing to compare. I would be very grateful if you could tell me whether this is normal? Can this be avoided or is it just me or him or both or just physics?
It is completely normal for air sometimes to find its way into the vagina during lovemaking – and many couples will have heard the sound which it occasionally makes, usually after the male partner withdraws.
It’s simply a question of the p3nis acting as a ‘pump’ which drives air in front of it.
The rear-entry position does make this more likely as the angle of penetration relative to the vagina is different to the angle achieved in the ‘missionary’ position. There isn’t really any way round it. It isn’t due to muscular laxity or too much or too little lubrication – it is as you thought, just down to fluid mechanics!
