So if you want to enjoy sex to the fullest, but also don't want to hurt yourself while doing the deed, you'll want to try out these top three sex positions for women over 50.

Missionary may not be everyone's favorite position, but it only gets better with age. This updated plank missionary position is also a little bit different than this classic setting, but it works just as well.
