Position of the Month Club - Spooning
Welcome to the Come As You Are Sex Position of the Month Club! This month we'll take a closer look at the spooning sex position - a kind of side-by-side sex. Demonstrated beautifully by the talented, gender-ambiguous couple "A + B", the spooning position is a really great position to get close to your lover, and can be less physically strenuous than partner-on-top style positions.
Here's how to do it: Lying on a spaceous surface like the bed or the floor, both partners should be lying on their side with the partner doing the penetrating spooning their partner (pictured).
Although this position allows for a lot of physical contact between the partners, movement can be limited, and moving in concert with your partner can allow for more active penetration.
Additionally, the spooning position causes less strain on the body and can be a viable option for people who experience chronic pain and is ideal when a wide range of movement isn't ideal. This position can be very comfortable during pregnancy - consider avoiding lying on the right side after the first trimester - although any position comfortable during pregnancy should be just fine (avoid lying on the back for long periods of time after about 4 months).
If your sex is political and your political is personal, the spooning sex position can be a nice twist on the usual who's-on-top? sex positions.
