You can’t tell me that there aren’t nights when you just can’t be bothered, right? But you wouldn’t mind if you think again… well, there’s one sex position that will get you there without breaking a sweat: Spooning.
It’s a sweet, intimate position and you can stay close and cuddly. It’s relatively simple to spoon. You both simply lie on your sides, facing the same direction. The partner who’s going to be penetrated should be in the front. Depending on the height difference between you and your partner, penetration may involve a little bit of finesse.
Once you’ve assumed the position, you should be off to the races. Outside of that little bit of maneuvering, the spooning position requires very little energy from either partner. “Either partner can do the gyrating and thrusting while the other stays still, said Sadie Allison, a sexologist and the author of Ride ‘Em Cowgirl! Sex Position Secrets for Better Bucking.
“Whoever is the most tired can simply hold still; she holds her back arched against him or he holds his pelvis tucked and stable,” she said. “The other can do the gyrating from the front or pushing from behind.”
Spooning without having sex has its perks, too. When you embrace or spoon your partner after sex (or anytime, really), oxytocin (also known as “the cuddle hormone”) is released, making you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. The chemical has also been linked to social bonding, so you’re bound to feel a little closer to your partner after a spoon session.
