This is the number one position to have the most intimate sex ever, according to a survey

Sex with someone you're really, really into - you just can't beat it.

Sleeping with someone new can be anything from exciting to gas to just awkward but once you get into a rhythm with a person, well... it'll be all you want to spend your time doing.

At this point sex can start to feel a little more connected than your standard one night stand.

You may be trying out more adventurous stuff but, according to a survey, most women reckon that going back to basics with your sexual positions is the key to greater intimacy.

Missionary was voted the number one position for having the most connected sex.

Over 60 per cent of the women who were asked by Superdrug said that good old fashioned man-lying-directly-on-top was the best way to make getting between the sheets feel more connected.

It could be down to the potential for intense eye contact or the fact that there's loads of skin-to-skin contact happening.

Touching your bare skin off someone else during sex releases oxytocin, a hormone that creates deeper feelings of attachment between people.

The second most intimate position according to women? Spooning, which 15 per cent of female respondents said made them feel most connected to their partner.

Third on the list was cowgirl, or woman on top facing her partner, at ten per cent followed by 69ing, which was top for five per cent of women.

So there you go - while missionary might have a reputation for being a little vanilla, it could help to strengthen the bond in a relationship.
