Basic Spooning Sex Positions:
Lying on your side you are facing away from your partner (if you’re the one being penetrated) or facing your partners back (if you’re doing the penetrating). Usually there will be some overlapping of arms and legs in this position.
Variations of Spooning Positions:
If you like the idea of this position, think about how it will be most comfortable for you.
If you are penetrating your partner, you might want to be lower down then them on the bed. Use your hands and arms to spread apart or lift up one of their legs. In another variation, the partner being penetrated can curl up a bit, exposing their bum and/or vagina. The “scissors” position is another variation on side-by-side.
