The basic spooning sex position

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.

Pros of the Spooning Side Sex Position:

  • This position offers a lot of physical contact for the person doing the penetrating.
  • For people with hip problems this position can be very comfortable and allow for longer, slower penetration.

Cons of the Spooning Side Sex Position:

  • This position does not allow for a lot of leverage for thrusting and both partners may feel like they have less movement and freedom.
