Spoon sex position. This position is called spoon because the position is visually analogous to stacked spoons.
There is a certain asymmetry here, because men can spoon women, but women can’t really spoon man. Spoon sex position is also good if the penis is going into the female’s ass hole.
The spoon sex position or spooning is a sexual position and a cuddling technique. The name derives from the way that 2 spoons may be positioned side by side, with bowls aligned. The sexual spoons position is a form of a rear-entry position, the other being the doggy styleposition. The spoon sex position has been called one of the “basic four” sex positions.
In the spoons cuddling position, one partner lies on one side with knees bent while the other partner lies with his or her front pressed against their back. The spoons cuddling position is not limited to two people.
In the spoon sex position, the receiving partner would be in the inner spoon position and the penetrator is in the outer spoon in preparation for rear-entry penetration. For penetration, the partners may separate their upper bodies, with just the pelvises connecting, and their legs can also rest on top of each other. The receiving partner may lift the upper knee to allow for easier penetration.
The spoons position allows for a great deal of physical intimacy, as there is full-body contact which allows for cuddling. Both partners have control of the angle and depth of penetration, and slow, low-intensity sex can last for a long time because it usually takes longer for the man to reach orgasm. However, there is little visual stimulation for either partner, as they are not facing one another and cannot see each other’s bodies fully. The penis can also slip out easily.
The spoons position may be preferred by couples who have just woken up or are very tired. It may be used if the woman is pregnant, even during the last trimester, because it does not put any pressure on the abdomen. It is also good for those recovering from illness or surgery, or the elderly, because it puts less strain on muscles.
